January 28, 2009 – Many workers in West Virginia coal preparation labs (where they test the density of coal for market) are unaware of the serious health effects they face from industrial chemicals.

The signature injury associated with PERC is central nervous system disorder. Symptoms of long-term exposure include:
PERC is a carcinogen
