FMTV - Poisoned Lives: Secrets of the Chemical Industry

Poisoned Lives: Secrets of the Chemical Industry

Runtime: 52m 20s | Release date: 2016

Alice, Kenton, Bucky, and Rachna are the hidden victims of the chemical industry. They all grew up in either India or in the US, in towns built around plastic and pesticide factories.

For a long time, the resounding success of the chemical industry has masked the darker reality behind their practices. For several decades their factories have secretly dumped toxic products into rivers, groundwater systems, and soil. This pollution has affected thousands, causing disabilities, cancers, and death.

No one is safe: both the inhabitants of these regions and the employees of the companies have all been affected. But the chemical giants will do anything to keep these tragedies a secret.

Through the analysis of samples and confidential documents, the two directors gauge the true extent of the contamination and ultimately shed some light over years of lies and impunity. All that remains are the testimonies of the victims across the world; those whose lives have been poisoned...

Sorry for the trouble, Sieglinde. Some have resolved this by checking and disabling the browser apps and extensions you don't need. Have you also tried this using another browser? If it's still not working, please chat with us so we can check this further. ~ Jasmin ❤

Another very strong, informative movie on corporate greed and how big companies do not care about human lives. Would recommend everyone to watch this so you could make informed decisions on who you're supporting with your money and buying choices.

So very wrong. I hear about so many chemical corporations over-riding people and animal health all for their greed and power. Thank you for sharing this.

This was a powerful documentary and the message speaks for itself. I have a girlfriend who worked for Dupont years ago, and I believe her congestion over the years is from working there. I will watch this again just incase I missed something. Thank you
