Document Abstract:
The protection of children against chemical toxins in the environment is a major challenge to modern society. Children today inhabit a world vastly different from that of generations past. Most children in the western world today are better fed and better educated than children of earlier generations. Yet, children today face hazards that were neither known nor imagined a few decades ago. They are at risk of exposure to nearly 15,000 high-production-volume synthetic chemicals, nearly all of which have been newly developed in the past 50 years.
