  • Trump EPA consistently violates congressional law on how it reviews the health and safety of new chemicals, allowing companies to hide information from impact studies to the public.

  • Trump EPA avoided the public comment period on a cancer causing pesticide that is used on soybeans in over 25 states.

  • White House made edits to EPA documentation that downplays the impacts of trichloroethylene (TCE, a chemical often used by drycleaners,) which significantly increases a fetuses chances of heart deformations even at low levels.

  • Trump EPA failed to analyze the health impacts that outdated polluting trucks would have on children.

  • Trump EPA has restricted the input of a scientific committee from advising the EPA on how people can be exposed to toxic pollutants such as asbestos.

  • Trump EPA has exempt farms from reporting air pollutants, like ammonia and hydrogen sulfide; by not collecting data on these pollutants, rural communities close to these farms may face higher health impacts.

  • Trump EPA refuses to refund 13 research centers that examine how early childhood exposure to harmful chemicals can lead to health impacts. These research centers have led to over 2500 studies such as how public smoking bans have decreased exposure to pregnant mothers and how air pollution affects childhood asthma.

  • Trump EPA ignores more than a dozen of its own scientists and lawyers and fails to ban the import of asbestos, a practice 60 other countries have already done.

  • 20 state EPA agencies no longer track the emission of NOx which is an air pollutant impacting multiple areas of health.

  • Trump EPA suppresses the release of scientific studies that access the health impacts of different chemical pollutants, this includes stopping the reporting of 11 chemical assessments that are the gold standard for examining the impact of chemicals like formaldehyde and PAHs (Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons).

  • Trump EPA restricts the assessment of exposure to hazardous chemicals to "direct contact" only, this means exposure through air polution, drinking water, and hazardous waste are not accounted for.

  • Trump EPA dissolved a scientific panel that advised leadership on the health impacts of toxic air contaminants.

  • Trump EPA eliminated the "once in always in" policy for air polluters without a public comment period. This rule requires polluters who are over the legal limit to install technology to reduce toxic air emissions. The EPA estimates that this rule reduces 1.5 million ton of toxic pollutants such as benzene every year.

  • Trump EPA suppresses the release of research linking formaldehyde to cancer, allowing formaldehyde to be a common chemical in household products.

  • Trump administration stopped the publication of a study on the health impacts of PFAs which are chemicals found in drinking water and household products. Previous studies have linked PFAs with decreased fertility, learning disabilities in children and hormone interference.
