Vinyl Causes Cancer

Russell Mokhiber and Robert Weissman, writing for the Corporate Predators mailing list, noted in their latest column that tonight PBS will show an exposé detailing the chemical industry’s silence about vinyl, which they have known since the 1950s is a cancer-causing substance.

More interesting to those of you who are smoking-gun wonks will be the more than 35,000 documents that will be released on this site tomorrow morning, primary-source evidence that Union Carbide, Dow Chemical, and others did indeed know vinyl is a carcinogen, and tried to keep it on the down-low.

no more vinyl pants for you!
