Lack Of Testing Of Chemicals

When humans consider allowing sick people to take a new chemical/drug, they test it for many years before accepting it, even when the people who need it will soon die without it and even when only a few people will ever be exposed to it. However, humans happily pour known toxic chemicals into the environment without any testing, exposing not only all creatures in the environment including humans, but also humans who eat plant and animals from that environment. Only when some wealthy and altruistic soul funds the research to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that trouble detected is 100% caused by one particular chemical dumped into the environment, will humans even consider restricting it. We have our cautions backwards.
