Is a council pesticide causing cancer in Victoria? This week on THE FEED


What’s causing a cancer cluster in regional Victoria that has killed babies, children and adults?

Locals blame a council pesticide spraying program in the nearby wetlands. The chemicals are the most widely used pesticides in the world and were considered safe, but have now been listed by the WHO as probably carcinogenic.

So is the spraying to blame for the cancer cluster? And what does that mean for other Australian cities and towns which have used this pesticide widely?

Presented by Marc Fennell, Alice Matthews and Alex Lee, the multi Walkley Award-winning program continues to break new ground with its compelling mix of current affairs and comedy, interviews, and investigations.

The Feed airs Tuesday, 1 June at 10.00pm on SBS and On Demand
