Pozo del Tobo Biotech Corn

Pozo del Tobo Biotech Corn

Students ride a motorbike past a field of biotech corn on their way to school in Pozo del Toba, Santiago del Estero province, Argentina on May 3. American biotechnology has turned Argentina into a commodities powerhouse, but the chemicals required aren’t confined to the fields. They routinely contaminate homes, classrooms and drinking water. Now a growing chorus of doctors and scientists is warning that uncontrolled spraying could be causing the health problems turning up in hospitals across the South American nation.
