The Adverse Effect

Sep 17, 2019

Human trafficking is a multi-billion dollar international industry. The State Department estimates there are 30 million people living in slavery or slave-type conditions across the world. 

In today’s hard-hitting episode of The Adverse Effect, we speak to Nancy Hartwell, an internationally recognized authority on human trafficking and the twenty-first-century slave trade. She has carried out 719 radio and TV interviews in 30 countries trying to educate people about this harrowing subject and has written a series of three "faction" books featuring the victims of this crime. 

This mouth-dropping episode is an education into the mafia factions behind this highly organized industry. 

With eye-opening accounts, Nancy gives details of just how widespread trafficking is, both domestically and internationally. Listen to some shocking revelations of states that serve as trafficking headquarters. 

This is an important episode showing some of the predatory techniques used to entrap vulnerable people and useful tips on how to safeguard your family against internet crime and exploitation.
