Scientists from across the country have completed a rigorous review of the evidence on methyl iodide. Their report: "adequate control of human exposure would be difficult, if not impossible."
Methyl iodide is a water contaminant, nervous system poison, thyroid toxicant and is known to cause cancer. "A chemical used to create cancer cells in laboratories has no place being broadcast into the environment near where people live, work and play," said Ed Zuroweste, MD, Chief Medical Officer, Migrant Clinicians Network. "Our communities are not lab rats."
