I still remember the effect the old preservative Penta had on folks. We have an old post company not too far from here. I knew the family well. Hard workers with lots of kids. The entire family is gone now, having all suffered strange cancers. Even when they realized their family was slowly dying off from it, they continued in the business for lack of anything else to do. Sad.

You probably hear more about Libby, Montana because of the asbestos problems there and it being an EPA superfund site. Years prior to that, half the wells in town were contaminated forever by Penta in the ground water.

I wonder about the government studies that showed Copper Arsonate to be a safe alternative. I hope whatever alternate treatment they come up with is as effective and harmless.
