Environmental pollutants and disease in American children: estimates of morbidity, mortality, and costs for lead poisoning, asthma, cancer, and developmental disabilities.
TLDR
The costs of pediatric environmental disease are high, in contrast with the limited resources directed to research, tracking, and prevention, because the incidence, prevalence, mortality, and cost of pediatric disease in American children are high.
Public Health and Economic Consequences of Methyl Mercury Toxicity to the Developing Brain
TLDR
It is found that between 316,588 and 637,233 children each year have cord blood mercury levels > 5.8 μg/L, a level associated with loss of IQ, and the resulting loss of intelligence causes diminished economic productivity that persists over the entire lifetime of these children.

Concerns over use of glyphosate-based herbicides and risks associated with exposures: a consensus statement
TLDR
GBHs are the most heavily applied herbicide in the world and usage continues to rise; Worldwide, GBHs often contaminate drinking water sources, precipitation, and air, especially in agricultural regions and regulatory estimates of tolerable daily intakes for glyphosate in the United States and European Union are based on outdated science.
Occupational injury and illness in the United States. Estimates of costs, morbidity, and mortality.

Pesticides and inner-city children: exposures, risks, and prevention.
TLDR
Protection of American children, and particularly of inner-city children, against the developmental hazards of pesticides requires a comprehensive strategy that monitors patterns of pesticide use on a continuing basis, assesses children's actual exposures to pesticides, uses state-of-the-art developmental toxicity testing, and establishes societal targets for reduction of pesticides use.
