DARK WATERS 

Less Cancer Founder Bill Couzens with public health hero Rob Bilott, whose real life-story and his book, Exposure, inspired the film Dark Waters.

Rob Billot, author of Exposure: Poisoned Water, Corporate Greed, and One Lawyer’s Twenty-Year Battle against DuPont, answers questions from viewers at home.

Dark Waters is a shocking true movie about a community exposed to cancer-causing chemical pollution by its biggest employer. The highly acclaimed 2019 legal thriller stars stars Mark Ruffalo, Ann Hathaway and Tim Robbins. Three-time Oscar nominee Ruffalo plays Bilott, the tenacious lawyer who investigated and revealed DuPont’s blatant disposal of toxic waste into the water supply of Parkersburg, WV. Despite successful class action suits filed on behalf of residents whose cancers and other serious illnesses were linked to the PFOAs in their water, Bilott’s fight continues.

Rob Bilott is a Board Member of the Next Generation Choices Foundation (LessCancer.org).
