Isn't about time Americans tacked the root of the problem and concentrate on reforming the EPA? Oh, and while you're at it what about the FDA. They are both toothless Tigers which, rather than protecting the interests of the people, protect the interests of multinational corporations. I checked out the EPA website for a mission statement but couldn't find one but here's what I did find...." Using sound science as a compass, EPA’s mission is to protect you, your family, and the environment from potential risks from pesticides and toxic chemicals". EPA...FAIL!!!

Noted with true conern and like Kim Loan said, what about the FDA too. It is so scary what we do not know and what these administrations DO NOT DO to protect us. We need petitions! Thanks Cal!!

Thanks for the info, Cal. I guess even "pre-packaged" clothing must now be washed before wearing....gonna be pretty tough to wash my toothpaste, though. Since the EPA was created, many have worked hard to diminish its capacity....while others continue to try to strengthen it, along with providing more regulations for our benefit. Looks like the naysayers are winning simply by de-funding it and finding loopholes within regs. The worst thing that's happened is that lobbyists are writing the bills with loopholes in them...and Congress just approves them.
