Dr. David Lewis and the EPA
By Kimberly Simpson
EPA and Sewage Sludge
"It caught my interest if what if the two are connected? That all of the research being done on environmental pollutants; its link to autism might also be connected to vaccines, and that the aluminum adjuvants are allowing those pollutants to expose the brain." -David Lewis
Lawsuits related to this case include, Lewis v. EPA(1999 and 2003) and USA, Lewis, McElmurray and Boyce v. Walker. These cases and the doctor's editorials brought the case to the attention of the public. Besides the incriminating publicity for the company and some researchers on the case, there were no major effects for the organizers. However, the combination of similar situations leads to many protective acts such as the Clean Water Act. Without these whistleblowers the public would be helpless as companies polluted their water against their knowledge. Although one case may not lead to major changes, the combination of many leads to a cleaner future.
