Summary
Unlike developed countries, most of which have banned asbestos products, India can't seem to get enough of the material. Disturbingly, India's chief supplier is a Western nation. Canada restricts asbestos consumption domestically, but its massive exports to India have breathed new life into the Canadian asbestos mining industry-and given vulnerable Indians the kiss of death. This program investigates, sifting through the forces of global commerce that are responsible and examining the impact on low-wage workers and poverty-stricken families. Viewers learn about the widespread use of asbestos as a cheap roofing material, steadily displacing safer options such as thatch, tiles, or steel-and how this demand for the substance meshes easily with corporate marketing tactics. India's lack of affordable, accessible health care is also discussed
