An eye opening but necessary message
1 February 2019 | by noley87See all my reviews

As a former resident of Parkersburg, I always heard people talk about the danger of the chemicals produced and disposed of by the multiple plants in the area but never thought much of it because I never had more than hearsay. This documentary is excellent investigative journalism and exposes how DuPont corporate's blasé attitude about toxic chemicals hurt their employees health and the health of surrounding communities. Im so glad this was produced and I hope it prompts government agencies to take more action in regard to unregulated and potentially dangerous chemicals.
