EPA to launch internal investigation into tests on human subjects

Carolyn Copper, EPA's assistant inspector general for program evaluation, said in a previously unreleased Oct. 22 letter that the evaluation focuses on experiments from 2010 and 2011 that tested the effects of fine particulates, or PM 2.5, and diesel exhaust on humans.
