America's Children and the Environment
America’s Children and the Environment is a program of the US EPA which provides access to information to show trends in the levels of environmental pollutants in air, water, food, and soil, the concentration of contaminants in mothers and children, and the level of childhood diseases which may be related to environmental contaminants. By tracking the environmental contaminants, the EPA through the America’s Children and the Environment group tries to determine how varying concentrations have changed over time and the percentage of children who may still be at risk from the contaminants. They also get involved in the emerging issues, such as mercury in fish caught by individual fisherman and the potential for attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder.
