It was Mossville residents who demanded that EPA and ATSDR test our blood for dioxins because we thought that when the agencies had proof that we are being poisoned by the industries they would have to take action to protect our health. But, instead, the agencies have put their heads in the sand by saying they don’t know what is causing our elevated dioxin levels when we have industrial smokestacks right next to our homes. Our African American community and people are being destroyed while EPA and ATSDR look the other way and continue to allow these industries to get more permits to release toxic chemicals. “Environmental protection” is a myth that covers up what really is going on, which is pollution protection.

Delma Bennett, Mossville resident
