AbstractThis article provides a brief history of U.S. pesticide regulation, particularly regarding childhood safety. It then outlines ethical and scientific loopholes in the 2006 EPA rule on pesticide testing and regulation, and shows how the Human Subjects Review Board, mandated by the 2006 rule, has been implemented in flawed ways.
