An internal watchdog stated in a report on Monday that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) did not consistently disclose health risks to its human experimental subjects and neglected to include information about cancer risk. The EPA’s Office of Inspector General conducted an independent review and issued its report in response to a congressional request, which may have been inspired in part by a 2012 lawsuit filed by nonprofit Energy and Environment Legal Institute. The case was later dismissed by the judge.
“We brought the case just to try to stop the studies that were ongoing,” Dr. David Schnare, General Counsel of E&E Legal, told Medical Daily.
