The Chemical Industry’s Toxic Toll
What’s good for business, and what’s good for people, sometimes don’t mix. In the chemical industry, for instance, the products that fuel profits can also threaten our well-being.

On this edition, we’ll look at the 20th anniversary of one of the world’s worst chemical disasters, at the Union Carbide factory in Bhopal, India. We’ll hear about Occidental Petroleum’s toxic legacy at Love Canal. And we’ll examine how corporate polluters are ignoring environmental causes of breast cancer. – www.radioproject.org
