Try to watch this without shedding a tear.
W.R Grace KILLED a entire town. Not bankrupted
Killed the inhabitants throuigh careless handling of asbestos.
Everyone is sick. The asbestos dust was all over then town
Children got it from playing on the ball fiedl, swimming in the community pool, Men brought it home from the mine, open piles left sitting blew all over the town, entire families wiped out.
The one that got me was one woman who had a large tumor in her lung.
She would wake up at night to find her husband gone, he would be in the kitchen crying his eyes out cause of what he brought home to his wife. I can't even type this without tearing up
W. R. Grace knew in 1959 that there were high amounts of lung "deformities" (ONE IN THREE) in thier employees. And did nothing.
Bussiness as usual.
BTW there is no treatment for asbestosis. THe people you see in this, many in their thirties with children of their own are dead people walking, wondering what will happen to their children.
Dust To Dust
Synopsis: True story of a small Montana town that has lost 200 citizens from a silent, insidious killer, leaving the rest of the community with an uncertain future.
