  1. Having spent many years in R&D, the only “dirty” politics I see here is that some of these “scientists” may not be able to “accurately” back up their conclusions with data.

    • Jim, once again your comment leaves me to believe that you did not read the underlying story. Pruitts push for the Rod data underlying many of the regulations is directly against the notion of privacy that many study participants were guaranteed in order to use their personal medical record information. Please in the future read the articles before commenting, it’ll help you decide whether your thoughts are based in facts or just opinions.
