Series Description

FRONTLINE is investigative journalism that questions, explains and changes our world. Since 1983, FRONTLINE has served as PBS's flagship public affairs series. Hailed upon its television broadcast debut as "the last best hope for broadcast documentaries," FRONTLINE's stature is reaffirmed each week through incisive documentaries covering the scope and complexity of the human experience.

Program Description

This program traces the 30-year history of U.S. pesticide use, EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) regulation, and scientific study and explores the current risks of agricultural chemicals in our food. Reported by Bill Moyers, the program examines why the government has failed to certify the safety of pesticides and why the only source of data on pesticide safety is the industry that profits from them. The program focuses on the history of a study by the National Academy of Sciences, "Pesticides in the Diets of Infants and Children," which explores whether current pesticide residue levels are safe for children.
