Risk and Decision: Evaluating Pesticide Approval in California
A new study by the Sustainable Technology and Policy Program at UCLA
A new report shows that in at least one case, the pesticide regulation system in California failed by approving a pesticide called methyl iodide for use on strawberries. Methyl iodide is both a neurotoxicant and a carcinogen.
Study co-author John R. Froines is a Professor Emeritus of Environmental Health Sciences at the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health.
