At a press conference for injured movie and Kaiser workers at the Downey dump site mold expert Sharon Kramer reported on her efforts to expose the conflict of interest between the corporate doctor’s trade group ACOEM and government agencies which are supposed to protect injured workers and the public. She discovered that ACOEM is an organization that promotes “junk” science and it’s rules are written into the law in California with the deregulation of workers compensaton by Governor Schwartzenegger and the Democratic controlled legislature. She also reports on the role of Senator Edward Kennedy on deleting a government study on this conflict of interest.
