This video segment adapted from the independent film Blue Vinyl examines the dangers associated with the building material known as PVC. The film’s narrator has a rare form of cervical cancer traced to her exposure to a synthetic chemical (DES) when she was in her mother’s womb. She investigates the health dangers of exposure to other synthetic chemicals in her environment, specifically those stemming from the production, use, and disposal of PVC. She comments on the prevalence of PVC products and how dioxin is a key contaminant created during the manufacture of PVC products and when they get incinerated at the end of their life cycle. A background essay, discussion questions, and standards correlations are also provided.
