Pesticide testing 

Seems a 'top panel of scientists' deems it ethical to test pesticides and pollutants on humans to determine whether or not environmental safety standards can be lowered. This panel of experts purports: "While volunteers would derive no benefit and some might incur transient harm, the panel of experts said this would be outweighed by societal benefits."

Now how do you get people to volunteer for this sort of thing? Perhaps the poor and homeless? Interesting.
