Bowker, Michael

SUMMARY

Medical evidence has shown that asbestos is a slow but steady killer. A single microscopic asbestos fiber lodged in a victim's lung can cause myriad fatal reactions. Physicians estimate that exposure to asbestos will eventually kill millions of Americans. In 1989, the EPA finally did ban the manufacture, importation, processing, & dist. of commercial asbestos -- but the ban didn't hold. Here is the gritty struggle for justice in Libby, Montana, site of the most lethal environ. disaster in U.S. history. Tracks the cover-up that has led to the exposure of more than 100 million Amer. to the potentially lethal fibers that still exist in countless homes & in more than a million public bldgs. & offices. An urgent appeal to cut our collective losses & ban asbestos now.Ó Illus.Bowker, Michael is the author of 'Fatal Deception : The Untold Story of Asbestos: Why It Is Still Legal and Still Killing US', published 2006 under ISBN 9781422355633 and ISBN 1422355632.
