Children at Risk

Children at risk February 16, 2014 5:18 pm

Children are more vulnerable to harm than adults because all their mental and physical capacities are developing.

The most sensitive period of human development is before birth. During this time, recent research shows that interference in development from even very low exposure to outside contaminants, such as hormone disruptors, may significantly contribute to damaged capacities and increase risk of disease.

One of the greatest concerns should be the effects on learning and behaviour problems in today’s children.
