Look at the photo....... Aixa Cano has hairy moles all over her body. Doctors can’t explain them, but they say that Aixa’s birth defect may be linked to agrochemicals. Doesn’t she look like she’s really ashamed of her appearance?

Dare I say it.... "Stupidity of the American voter." There, I said it.
Monsanto, as evidenced by their actions alone, is evil. They use typical corporate/government/bully tactics to get their way... Intimidation & bankrupting their opponents.

No doubt, Monsanto is evil. But this episode was primarily about GMO produce.
Overuse of agrochemicals, especially RoundUp (ugh), is another matter… and we do have that on our radar with preliminary research, based off the ATS thread you linked.
In 2008, the USDA Agricultural Research Service recognized that, "As some cotton growers have relied exclusively on glyphosate (Roundup) to control weeds, it was inevitable that weed resistance to glyphosate would develop." The report recommended that farmers use both crop and herbicide rotation systems to avoid the development of resistant weeds. They also suggested planting winter cover crops, like rye, before planting the cotton, weeding the fields by hand, or using traditional pre- and post-emergence herbicides to control any weeds that germinate and survive the other methods.

Good episode and yes I believe you will take some heat on this one.
