A Cautiously Pessimistic Appraisal of Trends in Toxics Regulation

David Adelman’s article provides an overview of (at the time the article was written) recent scientific developments and their implications for toxics regulation. Adelman advocates that the Environmental Protection Agency and National Institute for Environmental Health Sciences invest modestly in toxicogenomic research. The final part of the Article examines promising opportunities to improve the regulation of toxic substances, which is the subject of renewed interest in Congress and rising support from a broad cross-section of stakeholders.
