  • Because they can't leave unbiased information out of the study if they use the information from the last 50 years. They have to start the study now so that they can leave important information out of the results so as to sway our environmental legislation going forward. Just like all of the global warming scare tactics have information out there that refutes the scare manipulations.

    Because this study could easily be done now instead of waiting 20 years. "The National Children’s Study will examine the effects of environmental influences on the health and development of 100,000 children across the United States, following them from before birth until age 21."

    The govt has a database dating back to the 60s. Why not gather all this information now and come up with the results RIGHT NOW.

  • Of course it is a waste. We have no business putting money into any of these pork projects . If they stopped pork projects completely for 2 yrs we could be a long way towards a balanced budget.
