TTIP: for the better or for the worse?

TTIP is a trade deal between the EU and the US, the negotiations for which are taken place in secret. The media pays very little attention to such a deal which would have huge implications for many countries.

I'd like to think that TTIP will be used to improve trade and regulations across the board: improving the quality of products and how the government regulates quality. But I don't think this will be the case. The whole secrecy surrounding the affair is certainly worrying, and there are suggestions that it will allow corporations to sue the state for loss of earnings due to the state's laws. I'm worried about how this will affect the EU's ban on certain pesticides, and the NHS.
