Description

This book reveals the events behind the asbestos-related deaths of hundreds of miners and their family members and the related sicknesses of thousands of others who lived near the W.R. Grace & Co. vermiculite mine. The investigation documents how company officials knew for decades that the ore from the mine was dangerous but still they concealed the hazard. The authors also show how the federal government had known of the poisonings but had failed to disclose the problem.
