Carey Gillam talks "Whitewash: The story of a weed killer, cancer, and the corruption of science."

This is a recording of Pesticide Action Network’s event with Carey Gillam on June 6, 2018 in Minneapolis, MN. Carey talks about her new book “Whitewash: The …


  1. I am a single female senior citizen needing a voice. My government officials used chemical weapons (glyphosate) to eliminate me from my private property. This continued on a weekly basis for over 5 years. The chemicals were applied to my side of the 300' common boundary of my neighbor/council member. The effect the chemicals had on my body is extreme and chronic.

    The Feds claim no violation of Federal law has occurred. When were private property rights removed from Federal protection?

    I was forced to flee from my home, business and the outright enjoyment of the property I had owned for 15 years, to escape the chemicals. There was a civil court order citing my right to use my property as I wished. That court order was never complied with or enforced. I was denied filing a trespassing complaint against this neighbor.

    This neighbor needed my land to have enough to get the illegal structures he built on his otherwise worthless nonconforming property legally recorded on the County plat map. He purchased his lot from the Mayor. The evidence is indisputable. Public record shows the Mayor knows that legally non conforming properties can not have new structures larger than the existing structures. This neighbor built structures fitting a farm including barn on a 70'w X300'l lot in town. The building permits are fraudulent.

    I was harassed by City and County officials who committed document fraud and brought criminal charges against me based on fabricated law on behalf of their friend. I had no protection of the law. When I fled my skin was so severe that anything touching it was unbearable because of the intentional exposure.

    I take methotrexate in an attempt to control the condition. Methotrexate has serious side effects to internal organs. I was blind as a result of the intentional exposure and homeless the following 4 years. I was a self employed upholsterer. I purchased my property because it provided a home, workshop and garage.

    No authority has ever reviewed my evidence, yet the FBI has determined no violation of Federal law has occurred.The AUSA advises that he has the authority to violate that civil court order with no court procedure. I believe the AUSA is knowingly making a false statement.

    I am not an attorney with the duty to protect the rights of the citizens of the US. I know all reasonable citizens know that nobody has the right to do anything to another person's property.There is no case similar on record in the US.

    My private property was taken without just compensation.

  2. I find it most shocking, how easily some scientists can be purchased by companies like Monsanto.

  3. Thanks you Carey Gilliam! It is common sense that chemicals harm the body. An ex nurse told me to stay clear of chemical medicines. I hope people will stop banks from promoting pesticide use by claiming Japanese Knotweed devalues a property. Having lived at this address for 15 years, the plant has not moved! They are scaring people into destroying our health, killing our bees and planet by using this dreadful POISON. STATE Education is very misleading!

    When the Internet allows me to do so, I will upload your video to my BLOG:

    What do you think of ROOTWAVE? Using Electricity instead of chemicals to get rid of unwanted plants? Personally, I love wild medicines they call weeds. They have more nutrition than anything you can buy in the shop!

  4. Carey Gillam Keeps Lying About Glyphosate

    "Carey Gillam is an anti-GMO activist who once wrote for Reuters, but no longer does. An e-mail obtained from a FOIA request shows that her activism may be why. Indeed, Gillam's work has been described as "polemical, sometimes fraudulent and routinely misleading."
    Any editor worth his or her salt should think twice before allowing Gillam to publish anything, particularly when it comes to GMOs. Literally, the very first sentence of the article is a lie. Gillam wrote: "US government scientists have detected a weedkiller linked to cancer in an array of commonly consumed foods…" That's a bald-faced lie. Period.

    The scientific consensus is that glyphosate does not cause cancer. The EPA, FDA, EFSA (European Food Safety Authority), and WHO (World Health Organization) all have arrived at the same conclusion. The only odd one out is IARC, a bizarre little outfit inside the WHO. Why? Investigations have revealed that IARC insiders are engaged in scientific fraud and have massive financial conflicts of interest.
    Is any of that mentioned in the article? Nope, of course not.
    The content of the article is also suspect. Instead of waiting for an official report from the FDA, Gillam obtained e-mails from a FOIA request. Her article is framed to make it appear as if the FDA is covering up unsafe levels of glyphosate in the food supply. But her own source contradicts that assertion:

    While developing his method he tested grain corn and found one sample to contain 6.5 ppm. The corn he tested was not an official sample, therefor [sic] no regulatory status can be assigned.
    So, one sample had a high glyphosate level. One out of how many? 100? 1000? We don't know, because the email has little context. That's why we wait on official peer-reviewed reports, not on individual data points cherry-picked out of e-mails."
