From playground to classroom, at home and across town, environmental hazards are all around us -- an unfortunate fact of modern life. And no one is more vulnerable to the adverse health effects these hazards can cause than our children.

Yet little time is spent training physicians and other caregivers to recognize, prevent, and treat ailments resulting from exposure to harmful substances and environments. This comprehensive guide puts critical children's health information and answers to parents' questions at your fingertips. From asbestos to radiation, ultraviolet rays, pesticides, asthma, lead, tobacco, childcare and school environments -- plus new chapters on global climate change, plasticizers, developmental disabilities, environmental disasters, and more -- current information on an exhaustive range of environmental health issues is included. The 3rd edition features 59 topic-based chapters including the addition of 18 new chapters.
