The Beloved CommunityUnknown - 2014
This case study of First Nation people in Ontario, Canada illustrates how a Great Lakes oil town is facing a toxic legacy head-on. The nerve center of Canada's petrochemical industry, Sarnia once enjoyed the highest standard of living in the country, but now it is a compromised environment with a devastating community health crisis. The city has already lost a generation of men to workplace-related cancers. Now their widows and daughters are discovering a reproductive time-bomb; because of their own exposure to a cluster of hormone-mimicking chemicals called "endocrine disruptors," the next generation may be at risk.
