Description

"The series showed how political pressure -- not science -- determines how the US Environmental Protection Agency enforces a new law aimed at cutting pesticide residues in children's foods. The stories followed one pesticide, Guthion, through EPA's regulatory process to show how (big business and political) influence affected the way the agency set the safe dose, measures the toxicity and gauged the amounts of the pesticide children ingest."
