On Monday, the Labor Forum will be talking with a resident of Cobb County active around a health and environmental issue in the community there. Located in Smyrna, Sterigenics has a facility that uses a gas to sterilize medical devices. The company has become a target of protests because last year the Environmental Protection Agency identified census tracts in the Smyrna area as having increased cancer risks, largely due to the use of the gas. We will learn more about the issue, what actions the community is taking to deal with it, and how our listeners can get involved.
