Washington, DC - (Sep. 24) JunkScience.com announced today that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has been sued in federal court for conducting illegal life- and health-threatening scientific experiments on human subjects.
Based on information uncovered by JunkScience.com publisher and public health consultant Steve Milloy through the Freedom of Information Act, the nonprofit American Tradition Institute Environmental Law Center (ATI) sued EPA in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia.
Among other things, the lawsuit asks for:
EPA to be barred from conducting illegal life-and health-threatening experiments;
a formal investigation of EPA's human experiments; and for
regulations based on the illegal experiments to be suspended pending an investigation.
"EPA has broken every law and violated every standard established since World War II and the Tuskegee syphilis experiments for the protection of human subjects in scientific experiments," said Milloy. "That EPA administrator Lisa Jackson permitted this heinous experimentation to occur under her watch shocks the conscience," Milloy added.
