EPA Feeds Diesel Exhaust to UNC Students


Just wow!  With everything that we know about diesel, why do more studies on it?  Why deceive students to give it to them?  Why give it to students that are already unhealthy?  Scumbags!

Patient Inhaling Diesel Exhaust

A Virginia-based public policy foundation claims that the EPA knowingly piped diesel exhaust into the lungs of dozens of people at UNC-Chapel Hill.

The American Tradition Institute Environmental Law Center is suing the Environmental Protection Agency for on-going experiments at the EPA’s Human Studies facility at UNC-Chapel Hill. The lawsuit alleges an EPA trial took diesel exhaust and piped it into the lungs of 41 people to see what would happen.

The institute says the EPA has exposed unhealthy patients to high levels of PM2.5, a toxic substance found in diesel exhaust, in experiments that began roughly six years ago.

The institute says the EPA parked a diesel truck next to a UNC building and pumped the diesel exhaust into a glass chamber, where patients unknowingly inhaled the lethal fumes for up to two hours.
