Abstract:

Epidemiological studies suggesting a causal relationship between exposure to specific environmental pollutants and adverse health effects in children have flourished, particularly with respect to air pollution.1 While the evidence is far from definitive, it is becoming increasingly clear that children are particularly vulnerable to certain kinds of environmental health risks. Concern for children's health risks from environmental pressures is reflected in the numerous examples of laws and regulations aimed at protecting children's health [see Scapecchi (2007) for an overview].
