Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., called it "extremely disturbing" that EPA scientists may have exposed people with conditions such as asthma and a
syndrome that puts them at higher risk for heart disease and strokes to concentrated, high levels of substances like fine particulate matter and
diesel exhaust. The allegations first surfaced after Steve Milloy, an author and publisher of JunkScience.com, learned of the experiments through
Freedom of Information Act requests. Milloy's subsequent report led to the lawsuit and now Inhofe's call for hearings.
