Superfund sites clean up into brownfields...then communities go about their business upon them, families live in the houses built upon them...and, not infrequently, cancers, birth defects, nose bleeds, skin rashes, and other diseases follow.

We talk to Irma Anderson who lives in Midway Village, California, and has a history of health problems. Ladonna Williams lived there too and saw the two-headed frogs the children brought home when they unknowingly played on contaminated land. For decades both women have tried to get elected officials hear what they're saying: the land remains dangerously contaminated.

Marie Harrison of GreenAction reviews the many issues she and other members of her Hunters Point/Bay View neighborhood face as that former military base and Superfund site transitions to a Brownfield.
