The only thing I¹ll add is that EPA registers thousands of products (is
supposed to be millions but they¹re 25 years behind legal requirements to
test and control chemicals and interactions). Namely pesticides. When
companies say their pesticides are EPA registered‹as if to indicate it¹s
safe‹it¹s because it has to be...because it¹s potentially hazardous and is
controlled.
