Generations at Risk? Environmental Contaminants and Reproductive Health

Speaker(s): 
Date: 
November 8, 2011 - 12:00pm
Location: 
90-3122
Seminar Host/Point of Contact: 

We are exposed to multiple environmental chemicals from the food we eat, the air we breathe, the water we drink and the products we buy.  Increasing scientific evidence is illuminating the link between these multiple chemical exposures and adverse health outcomes in the population, including preterm birth, asthma, neurodevelopmental outcomes and even obesity.  We are also uncovering the importance of exposures that occur during the earliest stages of development in utero and how impacts during this critical period of time can have both immediate, long term and even generational implications.    What are the sources of these exposures and what we can do to intervene is of critical importance for improving the health of our future generations.
