Libby, Montana: Asbestos and the Deadly Silence of an American Corporation
In a masterpiece of investigative reporting, journalist Andrea Peacock reveals the tragic story of Libby, Montana, and the families that have been devastated by asbestos-caused lung diseases. In this seemingly idyllic town, a mountain full of vermiculite was excavated and shipped to some 200 centers all over the country to be processed into insulation and potting soil. What the miners didn't know was that there was asbestos buried in with the vermiculite.
