From Silent Spring to Silent Night: A Tale of Toads and Men is the lecture Dr. Tyrone B. Hayes will be giving for Ohio University's Frontiers in Science Lecture Series.

A renowned biologist from the University of California, Berkley, Dr. Hayes became well known when he became the target of persecution from chemical manufacturer Syngenta, after his discovery of the altered reproductive developments it causes in frogs.

Tom Hodson and Dr. Hayes discuss Syngenta's attempts at the discreditation of his work, why the research is relevant to our society, and how it is developing many years later.
