    Corexit for dispersing the oil from the BP oil leak. The EPA tested Corexit for all of one week, by having fish living in waters with some Corexit in the water. The fish all survived - so the EPA ruled the product was safe. However, one of the more dedicated researchers did a similar test that lasted longer, and that test showed that Corexit is NOT safe - it just takes more than  a single week to kill off the fish. The EPA is just one more agency whose revolving doors mean industries' needs are being met, while our needs aren't.
