‘The Devil We Know’ tells the story of residents of Parkersburg, West Virginia, who courageously rose up against the chemical industry. For years, they had noticed rampant health issues among their neighbors and witnessed the sudden death of livestock on their farms. Against all odds, they put the pieces of an environmental mystery together and discovered the toxic chemical PFOA / PFAS in the drinking water of tens of thousands of people.
