Healthy Environment, Healthy Kids: A Guide to Children's Environmental Health
National Conference of State Legislatures, 2004 - Family & Relationships - 55 pages
Recent research has found that children are particularly vulnerable to environmental hazards. Air and water pollution, environmental risks in the home, and toxics in food and drink affect children more than adults. This volume examines policies designed to protect children from environmental threats, identifies factors that influence their health, and investigates childhood diseases that are caused or affected by the environment. State and federal legislation also are reviewed.--Publisher's description.
