From what I can see, the film tells some pretty disturbing facts about cancer and the chemical industry. Cancer is a very profitable disease and sinisterly most of the large chemical companies also have huge business involvements in cancer treatments. I’m pretty sure it’s not because they care. When the chemical industry produces phenomenal amounts of carcinogenic pollutants and then profits from drugs used to treat cancers it’s hard not to be cynical. In fact it’s glaringly obvious that yet again big industry is not only profiting from misery but is most probably helping to cause the misery in order to profit from it.
It has now been scientifically demonstrated that there is indeed a link between chemical products and the appearance of diseases, such as cancers, infertility, degenerative diseases of the central nervous system and allergies.CPME – Standing Committee of European Doctors, 2005
There is little direct evidence of widespread ill health or ecosystem damage by the use of man-made chemicals. Alan Perroy, Director General of the European Chemical Industry Council, in a 2001 letter to European Members of Parliament.
Medical experts can see the link between chemicals and cancer but proving it means taking on the legal might of the industry giants so this film will hopefully expose some of the things that the industry would rather you didn’t know.
