This dirty little secret (of the intimate connection between farmers' sprays and chemical weapons) makes the owners of pesticides nervous, always hiding the nature of their products. After all, how could you spray your food with cousins of chemical warfare agents without deception? This deception includes the thorough corruption of the EPA. Under the guns of polluters, White House and Congressional lobbyists, and the fig leaf of science, EPA, as if by magic, transforms biocidal stuff into harmless sprays. EPA approves pesticides on the basis of shoddy evidence of potential harm or safety. Despite the twentieth century history of private pesticide lab fraud, chemical companies are still allowed to "test" their own products. But the "tested" and extremely problematic pesticide "active ingredient" is not exactly the pesticide ingredient farmers spray. Farmers spray that product wrapped with a variety of other tested and untested toxic chemicals, which EPA, perversely, calls "inerts."

It’s worth watching the full clip—O’Brien also shared a clips of Williams’ appearances, calling him “the best talk show guest in the world,” but we’ve also transcribed the story below.
