DuPont vs. the World: Chemical Giant Covered Up Health Risks of Teflon Contamination Across Globe

38

– Broadcasting from the Sundance Film Festival, we are joined by three guests who personally battled with DuPont and are featured in the new documentary called “The Devil We Know,” that looks at how former DuPont employees, residents and lawyers took on the chemical giant to expose the danger of the chemical C8, found in Teflon and countless household products—from stain- and water-resistant apparel to microwave popcorn bags to dental floss. The chemical has now been linked to six diseases, including testicular and kidney cancers. We speak with Bucky Bailey, whose mother worked in the Teflon division of a DuPont plant in West Virginia while she was pregnant with him, and who was born with only one nostril and a deformed eye and has undergone more than 30 surgeries to fix the birth defects; Joe Kiger, lead plaintiff in a class action lawsuit against DuPont, and a school teacher in Parkersburg, West Virginia, who suffered from liver disease; and Rob Bilott, the attorney that brought DuPont to court.

  1. CEO'S are bound by law to make money for stockholders. Something has to change about that to include that our health matters or they don't get to do business here. Even dupont.

  2. your
    are amazing Amy I love you you are so profesional …so this video does has not loud sound as the many other Democracy Now.

  3. This is what happens when people must work for a wage or starve so no one will want to shut down a company because it will cause poverty by eliminating many JOBS! If the wage didn’t exist then they could have stopped production of every product that is causing pollution!

  4. This is pure CAPITALISM! Profits over people! We must destroy capitalism to live longer healthier lives for all humanity and for animals and plants! Corporations are actually modern slave plantations and illegal!

  5. An heir raped a 3 yr old daughter. Someone in government has been given Certified Immunity. THAT needs to be stripped.

  6. MODERN CAPITALIST GREED IN BOTH COMMERCE AND WAR HAS PRODUCED A SAD AND DIABOLIC HELL IN WHICH WE ARE OBLIGATED TO SURVIVE TO SUPPORT A MINORITY OF BILLIONAIRE GREED AND PROFITS AT ALL COSTS OF INNOCENT VICTIMS.
    WHERE IS YOUR GOVERNMENT AGENCY TO PROTECT US? WITH THEIR HANDS OPEN TO RECEIVE ELECTONATION DONATIONS TO GUARANTEE THE CONTINUATION OF A SYSTEM WHICH IS HIGHLY DESTRUCTIVE TO ALL LIFE IN CONNECTION WITH CHEMICALS ALIEN TO OUR NATURAL BIOSPHERE.

  7. look at Monsanto too…they all need amazing grace….to care like my grandma in heaven watches over me..i prayed, help me Jesus, i am sorry for my sins, enter my heart and be my best friend, amen …John 3 repent and be reborn…make your grandma proud…treat others as you wish to be treated…not for $ but for Dupont and Monsanto…what is right

  8. Dupont and Monsanto have been spreading poisons and very toxic carcinogens all over our environment for decades. They buy Congress's permission and approval to do this. You know that the government knew about all this BS with the Dupont poisoning rivers in OH and PA with these mickey mouse genocidal carcinogen chemicals. Our Congress who is supposed to protect us from Chemical monopolies who are killing us, aid and abet Monsanto and Dupont daily. They are committing genocidal profiteering on the entire populace of the planet and our Congress says it is ok as long as they keep putting money into Corporate PACs and Super PACs that both parties take money from. Both parties, all of Congress, save about 9 Progressives, our White House, and our Courts, our entire society is owned and run by Corporate America. We have not had a representative form of Democracy for decades. The Corporate PAC donor owners own EVERTHING. Why are you still falling for the Corporate narrative of partisan blames games, when both parties are wholly owned by the same Corporate PAC donor owners? Why are you still falling their line of BS? Why haven't you joined the Progressive movement in this country. Turn off the Corporate opinion control machine (Corporate owned TV) and join a Progressive group near you. We are awake Americans who want our country back into the hands of the people like our founding documents so indicate.

  9. 😡😡😡They knew it would kill.
    They didn’t care.
    The company should be closed and the CEOs etc should be Hanged for MURDER.😡😡😡😡

  10. After the 2017 flood in Houston Texas caused volatile chemical plants to pollute the populated area, a month later the powers-that-be said the plants needed to be reopened because "we live on chemicals." Despite that they kill everything.

  11. I-17 Phx.Southbound at Thunderbird. Bull Corp. Or whatever it was Motorola and on the outskirts of phx when they built it. Behind Frys Electronics now sits a housing project that was Motorola back yard dump. So welcome to sunny Arizona. Most of Miller Crossing was built on a flood plane. I've seen 3 feet of water on Dunlap and bucket drilled drainage at Camelback Inn. The lost Dutchman was ultimately killed when he caught a cold waiting days in a tree in a salt River flood. . When you see the Salt River carrying away a dozen bridges every month or two. So mom was a reporter for Prescott courier. We met the aliens in 1967 she was told to zip it. Frustrated she let fly a rumor all week drawing attention ufo landing Sunday headlines Prescott courier 1967 …and I was complicit …I delivered the thumb Butte district morning courier . Sometimes I was up at the crack of dawn helping Chris or Ralph Rodarte melt the lead and start all over.

  12. Mussolini is the one man on earth who knew intimately what facism was . When asked he said the hookup of corporations and gvts.

  13. I studied with kriya students. They teach meditation and breathing techniques that stop heart and lungs. For any time length. DuPont had a little accident and the hours before the horror of Bhopal and a completely dead town and surrounding area the leader of our sister organization had a divine idea to move 300 followers to the hills for some spiritual reason or another. 3 people were left behind. A Kriya adeptand two young students. DuPont gas filled the valley and as it rolled in people were running screaming ahead of it. The two students ran out to their death and the only life spares in the city was the YFF-SRF kriyaban yogi. She entered a closet shut the door zipped up in a sleeping bag and left her body and stopped all heart lung motion. Rescuers actually found her by the time the city was searched and found her and gently she came alive and walked away from the disaster the only survivor. It's April fool's and we are all really getting a billionaires washing out. Cheaper to kill us than to keep us. So now the billionaires pay us to kill each other. Big pharma is pissed at $85B oxycodone and Heparin and the dizzying arrays of immune killers ..and mercury in the vax and 17% autism after 40 vaccines by teenage years and flouride. WTF Harvard says dangerous neurotoxin toxin causes cavities . And green teeth. Then 1957-63 It was 95 million doses of polio vaccine to the boomers in that darn sugar cube. I had to beat dialysis and cancer . My brother PhD is fighting dialysis and cancer. Capt Wildman OSS-CIA-AF-RAF finest man I know succumbed at 92…dialysis etc etc. The dryer sheets have nitrites. Those 99c perfumes have nitrites. Slime n the burger and Mona Lewinki and lipstick where it shouldn't as the man who lived in a tree on university was now president of Arkansas cocaine central. This hoax as Trump calls it is going to profit no one but big pharma harma pharma harma pharma ..and now we pause for a quick advertisement for OZAMPIK …do not.take.if your not.breathing ..and now back to the chemical devastation.

  14. Some governments execute a murderer who takes ONE human life. What should be the punishment for a company that ruins the environment that we all share, potentially killing millions of people?

  15. I worked for Dow…..somebody please look into their operations…… And, just think, the Trump admin is weakening the EPA, CDC, and FDA to give the rich a tax break…..

  16. I say shame on the employees for all of these evil companies. The company cant practice their evil without the employees carrying out the deeds. Go get a fucking job somewhere else.

  17. DuPont March 22,2020, ran out. adrenalin blood from terrorized youth.. It's sold online. Satan ppl on tv, singers, movie stars take to stay young.

  18. the failure of vigilantism against such wrongs to humanity shows what a bunch of sniveling pussies we are deserving of our abuses.

  19. I see at 6:47 a picture of bathroom tap water flowing. The bathroom sink and counter top is made of DuPont Corian. The people who fabricate DuPont Corian counter tops, and other items breath both the dust and glue from that process every day. Health affects for this exposure are as yet unknown. The complaint about the dust and fumes have been ignored, dust collection systems, while installed are not maintained.
