"We have sprayed pesticides…throughout our shared environment. They are now in amniotic fluid. They’re in our blood. They’re in our urine. They’re in our exhaled breath. They are in mothers’ milk… What is the burden of cancer that we can attribute to this use of poisons in our agricultural system? ... We won’t really know the answer until we do the other experiment—which is to take the poisons out of our food chain, embrace a different kind of agriculture, and see what happens."
