Description

"Exposed: Decades of Denial on Poisons" revealed how, for more than half a century, benzene has taken an unspeakable and largely preventable human toll, while the oil and chemical companies that made or used the potent carcinogen knew it was dangerous long before they told workers or the general public. Over a year, the Center obtained and examined tens of thousands of pages of documents detailing the petrochemical industry's campaign to undercut the science linking benzene to cancer, and exposing the extent of corporate knowledge about a toxic substance that has killed or impaired millions.
