ilovebooksanddogs avatar reviewed on + 356 more book reviews

Terribly frightening story of how our government covered up the dangers of asbestos and still is to this day! It's all political and at the expense of innocent people, people just doing a job and trying to support their families who were lied to by the companies they worked for and the agencies who were supposed to protect them. We are still seeing the effects today with the 911 responders who are dying due to the products containing asbestos that are still sold to this very day! I am mindblown to find this out....I never knew...I like so many others thought asbestos was banned but guess is NOT! Brake pads still contain it and even more frightening is that the very crayons our children and grandchildren use are contaminated by asbestos and our government does not care! it's shameful and I am angry. EVERYONE should read this book and research the will be as angry and sad as I am! this is a large book but I couldn't put it down, I read it in a day.
