Himself - Biologist: You look at a house like this and the vinyl seems perfectly harmless. It's just sitting there in front of the house; nobody's falling down with any diseases. But that's if you are only looking at the product itself. If you look at its entire life cycle, from the moment it's produced, through its use, to the way it's disposed of, vinyl turns out to be the most environmentally hazardous consumer product on earth.

Pretty Good... Easy to Watch
16 October 2005 | by lindavgnSee all my reviews

I enjoyed the style of this documentary. It wasn't slick like a lot of docs you tend to see out there. But I don't agree that it was just BS like a lot of the reviews I just read here. I think that it is pretty well known information that PVC is toxic to the people who live around the factories, & who make the stuff. When it is in your home it is fairly safe, but if it catches fire then it sends up a lot of toxic fumes.

Ever open a new PVC shower curtain and it stinks up your house for weeks after? That is called out-gassing. A lot of new chemical laden household products out-gas. Like cabinets, furniture, carpets, etc. Google it. Read up.
