Great progress has been made over the past 40 years in understanding the hazards of exposure to a small number of developmental neurotoxicants. Lead, polychlorinated biphenyls, and methylmercury are all good examples of science-based approaches to characterizing the hazard to the developing nervous systems from environmental contaminants. However, very… CONTINUE READING
