Polluted science contaminates National Toxicology Program

The National Toxicology Program recently revised its process for listing carcinogens in our air and water. But does it go too far? Angela Logomasini of the Competitive Enterprise Institute offers this analysis: “Unfortunately, the federal National Toxicology Program’s carcinogen listing process has little connection to science. A CEI study shows that the criteria the agency uses are subjective rather than scientific.  As a result, the agency often labels many perfectly safe and valuable products as dangerous, inviting unnecessary regulations that undermining consumer freedom and innovation.  To ensure bad NTP decisions don’t adversely impact consumers, Congress needs to seriously reform the NTP process.”
