Comments: The National Academy of Sciences (NAS) issued three groundbreaking reports over the past few years, but their major recommendations—that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as well as other government agencies such as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) should make several changes to strengthen their toxic chemical risk assessments—have not been heeded. In this paper, the authors make the case that federal agencies should immediately begin to incorporate these changes into their assessments.
