Chemical IrritantsStreaming Video - 2009
Chemical irritants can cause a debilitating sensitivity or even a chemical injury. This program examines the all-too-common threat of chemical exposure-often from products and materials found in the average home or office building. Showing how contaminants and irritants can travel through heating and air conditioning ducts, the program highlights a case study in which a woman developed rashes, swelling, and difficulty breathing due to chemicals in her workplace. Another example features a man sickened by a chemical plant near his residence. Expert guests include Dr. Grace Ziem, a prominent occupational medicine specialist, and Alan Cohen of Beyond Pesticides, a nonprofit group that opposes the overuse of pesticides.
