The Radium Girls

The events described happened nearly a hundred years ago, but some things never change.  It’s a true life horror story grisly enough to give some people nightmares.  There’s a PBS doc called The Poisoner’s Handbook, about early forensics but the part about the radium girls is in there.  I think you can get it on Netflix if you’re interested.

I found a good article on it and am posting this link that i hope works.
