EPA's human testing brought to light

The Environmental Protection Agency will ring in the New Year with a court hearing over its years of human experiments.

Milloy, Steve (JunkScience.com)Author and JunkScience.com publisher Steve Milloy, who is involved in the case, tells OneNewsNow the court date is set for January 4.

"EPA is, in our opinion, conducting illegal human experiments at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine," Milloy reports. "EPA is, for example, pumping very high concentrations of diesel exhaust into the lungs of elderly people ... asthmatics and people with metabolic syndrome. We're trying to get it stopped."

A component of diesel exhaust is PM2.5. In a 2011 hearing (video) on the EPA's regulatory planning, analysis and major actions, EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson said that PM2.5 causes death.

"It doesn't make you sick," Jackson declared. "It's directly causal to dying sooner than you should."

That issue is key, as rules in the Nuremberg Code include the avoidance of all unnecessary suffering and injury, as well as deaths or disabling injuries.

In September, a former University of North Carolina student and test subject told WNCN-TV, NBC's affiliate in Raleigh, North Carolina, that he was never told of the dangers he was facing when he answered an ad and volunteered for testing in November 2006 and May 2007.

The EPA is defending its research.
