Kim O'Rourke, Middletown Recycling Coordinator, is pleased to announce the film screening and discussion of A Chemical Reaction on Thursday, April 1, 2010 at 7pm in MIDDLETOWN at the Middletown High School Lecture Hall.
A Chemical Reaction is a documentary movie about how three Canadian provinces came to ban cosmetic pesticides. It started when Dr. June Irwin, a dermatologist, noticed a connection between her patient's health conditions and their exposure to chemical pesticides and herbicides. This is the story of her bringing these serious health concerns to her neighbors and fellow citizens.
