- Description: This was clipped from the 1982 documentary, For Export Only: Pesticides. That film was written, directed and produced by award wining independent documentary producer Robert Richter. His related second film is "For Export Only: Pharmaceuticals." These two films document shocking information about corporations that export products to developing countries that are prohibited or severely restricted in the countries where they are made. The products are banned or restricted because they cause cancer, liver disease, central nervous system diseases, sterility and death. Specific products and manufacturers are named as the two documentaries clearly depict their use and abuse in Mexico, Costa Rica, Colombia, Brazil, Kenya, Ghana, Bangladesh and Malaysia. The brand names may be changed, but the practices documented in these powerful reports have not.
