498. Glyphosate, Farmer Suicide, and Chronic Disease with Dr. Zach Bush, Gail Fuller, and Alex Woodward

By Commune

In today’s episode we explore the far-reaching consequences of modern farming practices. Our guests – Dr. Zach Bush, Gail Fuller of Circle 7 Farm, and author Alex Woodard – explain why agriculture came to rely so heavily on chemical inputs, what that has meant for farmer and consumer health, and how a shift in farming practices can restore our internal and external ecosystems.
