JunkScience.com readers have previously learned that EPA has been subjecting human study subjects (without obtaining informed consent) to exceedingly high short-term exposures to diesel exhaust (2-hours at roughly 30x typical ambient PM2.5 exposures). You’ve also learned that these experiments have been conducted with exceedingly high short-term ozone exposures (i.e., 400 ppb, when the EPA 8-hour standard is 75 ppb). But we haven’t so far seen…
… both acute diesel exhaust and ozone exposures combined!
Here’s the risk disclosure EPA provided to its human guinea pigs:
That’s right… basically:
We don’t know what’s going to happen to you. But it could be really bad.
Once again, this experiment violates virtually EVERY provision of the letter and spirit of federal regulations promulgated to protect human research subjects — not to mention the venerable Nuremberg Code.
