[greenyes] EPA Issues New Cancer-Risk Guidelines Recognizing Children's Greater Vulnerability


NEW YORK TIMES

Environmental Groups Are Praising the E.P.A. for Updating Cancer-Risk
Guidelines
By MICHAEL JANOFSKY

WASHINGTON, April 3 - A remarkable thing happened here last week: the
Environmental Protection Agency announced a set of guidelines, and
environmental groups were largely complimentary in response.

The agency's new approach to assessing chemicals that might cause cancer won
praise for replacing guidelines that were nearly 20 years old and for taking
into account, for the first time, the likelihood that children may be more
vulnerable to exposure than adults.
