The Environmental Protection Agency released its first report on Corexit 9500, the dispersant BP applied to the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. The EPA concluded that the oil dispersant is less harmful than the oil spill after testing the dispersant on marine animals in a lab setting. "It's important to remember that oil is enemy No. 1 in this crisis," said EPA's assistant administrator for research and development, Paul Anastas.
