The Independent Science News website recently published an excellent article entitled ‘Unsafe at any Dose? Diagnosing Chemical Safety Failures, from DDT to BPA‘. The article is refreshingly long (for a website) and deserves widespread coverage.
At the time of this post, there were three comments related to the article and below is an extract from each one:
This is such an important article!
This is an excellent articulation of the set of issues that plague not only the regulation of chemicals but also of many other regulatory structures.
“Unsafe at any dose …” is undoubtedly the best article I’ve ever read so far as unveiling the illusion of environmental protection projected and protected by EPA and the regulated community.
For anyone interested in the safety of chemicals the article is a must-read.
