GLRPPR Sector Resource: Toxic Chemicals and Children's Health in North America

Title:
Toxic Chemicals and Children's Health in North America

Abstract:
One of the goals of this report is to focus on chemical releases into the environment from industrial activities and the effects of these chemicals on children's health. This report also aims to foster increased trilateral action to prevent and reduce children's exposure to harmful chemicals. Its focus is an analysis of available data on one category of pollutant, toxic chemicals from data obtained from the national pollutant release and transfer registers (PRTRs) in North America, and emphasizes the reporting of chemical carcinogens, developmental toxicants and neurotoxicants. Available for download in PDF format (94 pages) from the Commission for Environmental Cooperation.
