In 1926, radium was seen as a miracle cure for successfully shrinking tumors. It was widely celebrated until the girls using it for another purpose, to paint luminous watches, became terrifyingly ill. Inspired by a true story, written with warmth and humor, Radium Girls offers an unflinching look at American obsessions with health, wealth, and the commercialization of science.
