Environmental Protection Agency hid the risks of diesel emissions testing on human test subjects

By Rick Manning Once again, the EPA is under fire for not fully disclosing the cancer risks from diesel fume exposures to human test subjects.   But Senator David Vitter hit the nail on the head stating, ““When justifying a job-killing regulation, EPA argues exposure to particulate matter is deadly, but when they are conducting experiments, they say human exposure studies […]

More fraudulent science from EPA on sulfur in gasoline rules
