Children and environmental toxics: special symposium at New Orleans scientific meeting

Children's Behavior Patterns and Food Contamination - It seems kids are in constant motion. Video studies of one- to three-year old youngsters show how they can come in contact with environmental toxics, such as pesticides, which may subsequently contaminate their food. (G. Akland - Research Triangle Institute, N.C.; ENVR 8; Sunday, Aug. 22, 9:35 a.m.; Convention Center, Room 209. See page 89 in the final program.)

Persistent Environmental Exposures in Children - Breast milk can expose infants to environmental contaminants, particularly organochlorines, once widely used in insecticides. Research shows that breast-fed children receive higher doses of these contaminants than bottle-fed babies. Elevated levels of organochlorines have been measured in children eight years of age who were breast-fed as infants. Black and Hispanic women often have higher levels compared to Caucasians, so their babies may be exposed to higher levels. (M. Wolff - Mt. Sinai School of Medicine, New York, N.Y.; ENVR 17; Sunday, Aug. 22, 1:30 p.m.; Convention Center, Room 209. See page 89 in the final program.)

Kids, Dogs and Insecticides in Flea Collars - Residues of the organophosphate insecticides used in some flea collars can collect on the fur of a dog and subsequently be transferred to children who are in close contact with the animal. How much of the residue, if any, enters the child's body is the subject of a study involving families in Mississippi. (J. Chambers - Mississippi State University, Mississippi State, Miss.; ENVR 21; Sunday, Aug. 22, 4:00 p.m.; Convention Center, Room 209. See page 89 in the final program.)

Infant Blood Samples Could Warn of Future Health Problems - Blood routinely collected from newborns in the United States, and stored as tiny dried blood spots in many states, could serve as an earl
