Green Warriors: Paraguay's Poisoned Fields

University and General Public

Focus Theme:
2019 Humboldt and the Web of Life

Paraguay tells the story of our world. To feed livestock around the planet, the soybean industry destroys the country's forests, to plant the fields, farmers spray pesticides that poison the inhabitants. On site, journalists and scientists have come together to collaborate and find evidence of the contamination. They are developing a unique scientific study on the genetic damage of children who have been exposed to pesticides. The results of this study make headlines and trigger a national debate in the Senate. The team of Green Warriors are also able to track down the source of pollution: pesticide companies like Monsanto.
