How Low Will these Vipers Go?
Typical! One more way to screw the American consumer in this case children. The EPA is now inviting Industry to Mimic Practices of Discontinued CHEERS Study.
You may remember CHEERS (Children's Environmental Exposure Research Study), the EPA program that would have paid primarily poor black families $900 plus giving them a video camera to document the effects of pesticides on young children. This was done at the behest of the chemical companies and drew the wrath of Barbara Boxer and other Democrats. She threatened to block the appointment of Stephen Johnson to head the EPA, unless they canceled CHEERS.
Now the EPA is encouraging companies to do what they canceled.
