In this week's episode, Jess covers the truly shocking story of the Dupont Chemical Company, teflon, and the West Virginia community that was being slowly poisoned. Find out what 98% of Americans have in their systems that will never go away, and how all of this was brought to light by a farmer, a corporate defense lawyer, and - you guessed it - science.
