PBB: The Poisoning of Michigan with Dr. Edward Lorenz
Monday, January 257:00—8:30 PMONLINE EVENTNorthville District Library212 West Cady St, Northville, MI, 48167
In 1973, workers at a St. Louis, Michigan, factory accidentally mixed a flame-retardant chemical, polybrominated biphenyls (PBB), into livestock feed. Millions of affected farm animals were destroyed, but not before Michiganders had consumed PBB in contaminated milk, meat, and eggs. Dr. Lorenz will be joined by Brittany Fremion, a history professor at Central Michigan University, who is running the PBB Oral History Project and serves with Dr. Lorenz on the board of the Pine River Task Force and on the Emory University PBB Advisory Board.
Join us in this virtual presentation to learn about this tragic episode in Michigan’s history.
