Dr. Tyrone Hayes

Dr. Hayes, a professor at the University of California Berkeley, studied the hormone disrupting effects of the pesticide, atrazine on frogs. In reaction to the study’s results, Syngenta, the manufacturer of atrazine, went on a witch hunt to discredit Dr. Hayes and his research.

I have seen Dr. Hayes speak at conferences; he is a knowledgeable and captivating presenter of fairly dry information.
