Outrageous Report: EPA Tested Deadly Pollutants on Humans Without Always Disclosing Risks
A shocking new report says the Environmental Protection Agency tested deadly pollutants on humans without always informing them of the risks.
The EPA inspector general report found that, overall, the EPA "followed applicable regulations" when it exposed 81 test subjects to "concentrated airborne particles or diesel exhaust emissions” in five studies between 2010 and 2011. But the report also found that the consent forms used in these studies only sometimes told participants of the full range of risks, which include cancer and even death.
“What happened is someone decided that they oughta ask the question, ‘If I put my grandmother in a gas chamber and I poison her, how sick will she become?’” David Schnare, of the Free Market Environmental Law Clinic, said this morning on “Fox and Friends.”
Schnare said the EPA has done tests like this for more than 40 years, saying, “They did it simply because they could.”
He said the agency has done studies on young children and elderly people, and it hasn't even used the data accumulated from these tests.
