Little Things Matter: The Impact of Toxic Chemicals on the Developing Brain
The impact of toxic chemicals is usually subtle for an individual child, but it can be substantial in large groups of children. Low-level exposures to toxic chemicals – such as lead, tobacco, air pollution, pesticides, and flame retardants—are implicated in the development of intellectual deficits, behavioral problems, and low birthweight babies. Yet, too little has been done to protect children from these ubiquitous, but insidious toxicants. Dr. Lanphear will provide an overview of the impact of toxic chemicals on brain development and describe why the developing brain is particularly sensitive to toxic chemicals. Using childhood leukemia and autism, he will also illustrate why we are failing to prevent disease and initiate a dialogue about how to prevent chronic diseases in children.
