Pediatric Health Issues

The Saratoga Foundation for Women Worldwide established the Pediatric Environmental Health Project to explore the connection between childhood illnesses and environmental toxins. Long-term health effects in lab animals and humans include birth defects, gene mutations, nervous system damage and liver and kidney disease. Pesticides have harmful effects on human immune systems (impairs the ability to fight disease), have neurotoxicity effects (which can impair brain and motor skills), and have negative estrogenicity effects which produces certain cancers.
