Interviews with the people of Duffield, Virginia who worked at and lived near the biggest lithium plant in the country. Lithium is used by the nuclear industry, and is derived from spodumene, a mineral rock found abundantly in the underground caves of our mountain chains. Foote Mineral's lithium plant contaminated this corner of Virginia such that its residents have been suffering for decades from illness and debilitation, in many instances since birth.
Children drank from the local creek, white "snow" covered the ground on a regular basis, "something" came out of the factory chimneys every day. Residents grew up to develop breast cancer, heart problems, respiratory and vision problems, kidney stones. Their children have had health issues since birth. The people of Duffield may be typical of many more Americans who grew up near Manhattan Project refineries and chemical plants.
