A cineasta Penelope Jagessar Chaffer estava curiosa sobre os químicos a que era exposta quando estava grávida. Eles poderiam afetar seu bebê ainda não nascido? Assim, ela pediu ao cientista Tyrone Hayes que lhe informasse sobre um que ele estudou cuidadosamente: atrazina, um herbicida usado no milho. (Hayes, um especialista em anfíbios, é um crítico da atrazina, que apresenta um efeito perturbador no desenvolvimento de sapos.) Juntos no palco, em TEDWomen, Hayes e Chaffer contam sua história.
