Despite being treated like Bigfoot believers by their opponents, pesticide ascetics are inching their way toward credibility. Introduced by Monsanto in the early 1970s under the trade name Roundup (and used primarily back then as a weed killer), glyphosate is now used throughout the world on wheat and soy crops and since 2007 it has been the most widely used herbicide in the U.S.

...... 

Other countries that have been struck by a similarly mysterious form of chronic kidney disease - most notably, in Central America - offer dialysis to only a small fraction of patients who need it. Kidney dialysis is an expensive procedure.

In Sri Lanka, the government is trying to help larger numbers of patients. It is expanding access to dialysis and to kidney transplants. These efforts are keeping many patients alive.

But doctors and public health officials remain frustrated. They say more should be done to prevent people from getting sick in the first place.


This story was reported as part of a joint investigation by PRI's The World and the Center for Public Integrity.
