Spoon-Feeding Poison: EPA Opens the Door to Testing Bug Killers on People

Date: July 9, 2003
Author: Tennille Tracy
QUOTE: The tests appear to defy the very essence of the Hippocratic oath, "First, do no harm." Unlike tests for exploratory vaccines and medicines, pesticide studies offer zero benefits for participants.

ABSTRACT: Due to the efforts of the Bush administration, chemical companies may soon have permission from the federal government to test pesticides on humans. Critics are loudly opposed to ethical implications of such testing, and the author reveals several "scientific" studies that have obscured potentially fatal health risks from the American public.
