The Trump Administration is once again trying to push through its proposed “Censored Science” rule that would hobble the EPA’s ability to utilize most public health and environmental research.
If passed, the revised censored science rule would give corporate and industry polluters a free pass, undermine patient privacy and hamper the EPA’s ability to keep us safe from environmental exposures linked to breast cancer by disallowing many high-quality, peer-reviewed studies which are the basis of important protective regulations, such as the Clean Air Act.
Protecting public health from toxic exposures is essential. As we’re seeing during the current crisis, evidence shows that communities exposed to harmful pollution are particularly vulnerable to COVID-19.
