Little Things Matter: The Impact of Toxic Chemicals on the Developing Brain
Dr. Bruce Lanphear
Okanagan College, Vernon Campus
Thursday, April 6, at 7:30 pm
Tickets $7 in advance / $10 at the door
New research now suggests that even low-level exposures to toxic chemicals - such as lead, tobacco, pesticides, and flame retardants - are implicated in preterm birth, intellectual deficits, and behavioural problems.
Dr. Lanphear will describe the emerging evidence linking toxic chemicals with disease and disability to set the stage for a dialogue about preventing brain-based disorders in children.
