Robert & Rosalind Wright, from the Children's Environmental Health Center at Mount Sinai's Icahn School of Medicine in New York City. Children today live in an environment that is vastly different from that of previous generations. There are 100,000 chemicals registered with the EPA for industrial use and tens of thousands of natural chemicals in food. Metabolic products of all these chemicals increase this number by two-fold or more. Moreover, it is now recognized that air pollution is one of the largest environmental cause of disease globally. Use of chemicals like BPA, mercury, DDT, PCB, phthalates, and even lead have decreased in the United States and policies have been implemented to reduce air pollution, however, chronic diseases like autism, asthma, obesity, cardiovascular disease, cancer, learning disorders and others continue to rise. Doctors and scientists are taking new approaches to understand these concerning trends. Hosted by The Mann Family Early Childhood Center of Wilshire Boulevard Temple & Greening Our Children LA This is a free event. All are Welcome. Please RSVP. https://cehc.eventbrite.com. read less
