Chemical Brain Drain: How the Next Generation's Brain Functions are Endangered by EDCs and Other Environmental ChemicalsChemical Brain Drain: How the Next Generation's Brain Functions are Endangered by EDCs and Other Environmental Chemicals
Date: April 16, 2014
Description: Dr. Philippe Grandjean suggests that new scientific insights reveal that the next generation's brain functions are endangered by environmental chemicals. Prenatal and early postnatal brain development is an extremely complex process that we now know is uniquely vulnerable. Lead, mercury and a few other substances have long been known to be toxic to brain development. Recent research suggests that many chemicals, perhaps thousands, may cause similar effects because they can gain access to the developing brain and exert their toxicity to brain cells. On this call Dr. Grandjean will discuss what he terms "chemical brain drain" and how we might work to protect the brain health of future generations. This call is one in a series of calls about endocrine disrupting chemicals. These calls will be limited to 30 minutes, each featuring a 15 minute presentation by a leading EDC scientist, followed by 15 minutes of discussion.
