AbstractThe article examines the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's regulations for research on human subjects which took effect on April 7, 2006. The regulations were the result of an eight-year debate over pesticide testing on humans. Decision making on the regulations was said to be rushed at key points. Environmental groups objected to the Children's Environmental Exposure Research Study in 2004.
