Dow Chemical Corporation
The alternative corporate profile


Dow is responsible for a large proportion of the dioxin-related illness, death, and deformity worldwide, through its creation of organochlorine aliphatic and aromatic polymers, feedstocks, and agricultural chemicals. Agent Orange and its domestic equivalent 2,4,5-T, napalm, and Dursban stand out as examples of Dow technology. Dow-contracted researchers applied pure dioxin (2,3,7,8 TCDD) directly to prisoners' skin at Holmesburg, Pennsylvania prison experiments in the 60s. For details of their corporate crimes see below ...... and please email us with more.
