Protecting human health is both a core mission, and a natural extension of everything we do here at EPA. Our commitments to protecting the nation’s air, water, and natural ecosystems, taking action on climate change, and working with local communities to help them become more resilient and sustainable all lead back to protecting human health.
Recently, we have revisited that commitment in one particular area of great importance as we continue using the latest, and best-available science to support our work.
