Exploiting the Most Vulnerable?
Could this be true? According to HealthWorld Online, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is looking at allowing pesticide testing on orphans and mentally handicapped children.

As the EPA is still accepting public comments, this is the perfect time to voice objection.
