Starting in 2003 and ending in 2010, the EPA tested children with diesel fumes. They did disclose the fact that previously run experiments found that there is no such thing as a safe level of diesel. Those tests were done years before the EPA ran their research. The tests not only violate US and California laws, it actually violates the Nuremberg Code. That was an international law that was inspired by the experiments Nazi Josef Mengele ran on twins during WW2.
The EPA would shoot diesel fumes up the children’s noses and then record the reaction each child had. The EPA was required to tell parents that the experiments were dangerous and the fumes can cause cancer. All three laws (federal, California and International) forbid experimentation without disclosing the dangers of the research.
David Schnare, an attorney with the Energy and Environmental Law Institute was shocked by the disclosure that came as a result of a FOIA request by JunkScience.com. Schnare commented on the research:
“Not only has EPA been caught violating the letter and spirit of virtually every national and international code, law and regulation for the protection of human subjects in medical experiments developed since World War II.They have done so in shocking style, abusing the most vulnerable people of all, children.
