'Avalanche of Public Pressure' Forces Trump's EPA to Regulate PFAS, But Water Safety Experts Warn of More Delays

Originally published at http://www.commondreams.org/news/2020/02/21/avalanche-public-pressure-forces-trumps-epa-regulate-pfas-water-safety-experts-warn

From the article:

"EPA’s process to regulate chemicals like PFOA and PFOS presumes they are innocent until proven guilty."(emphasis mine)

That’s commendable in a system of law, but when dealing with issues of clean air, water and food, the precautionary principle must always apply.
