Gold reveal the potentially toxic effects of polyvinyl chloride (PVC), which is used in everything from cars to water mains to toys. Armed with a piece of blue vinyl siding, Helfand and Gold head to Louisiana -- America's vinyl-manufacturing capital -- and to Italy, where bigwigs from a PVC-producing company stand accused of manslaughter in a landmark case.
