Great Explanation of Chemical Toxicity

I have referred before to the gap between current understanding of toxicity and the outdated methods used by government agencies such as the FDA to determine the safety of a chemical.

The segment 'Low Dose makes the Poison' featured on the September 4th episode of the NPR program 'Living on Earth' explains the difference in a way that is easy to understand.

Welcome back, TFE! Why so long since your last post? We've missed you.

Hmm. Seems like outdated methods come in handy when your results are expected to help approve whatever industry puts in front of you.
