For toxic-chemical reformist, vindication
Portland Press Herald - 10/3/2009.
By John Richardson – Deborah Rice couldn't help feeling a bit vindicated this week when the head of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency called for an overhaul of the nation's toxic-chemical control law.

In Florida, atrazine is widely used on lawns, golf courses and sugarcane fields. But the USF researchers say study after scientific study shows that atrazine alters or interferes with the development, behavior and the immune, hormone and reproductive systems of aquatic animals.
