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

y warning system for future health problems. The advancing field of 'nanotechnology' - the ability to examine extremely small samples - enabled a researcher to examine 25 to 30 immune system molecules from one dried blood spot. This suggests it may be feasible to use the spots to predict medical problems children might later develop. (T. Phillips - George Washington University, Washington, D.C.; ENVR 22; Sunday, Aug. 22, 4:30 p.m.; Convention Center, Room 209. See page 89 in the final program.)

Hazards to Young Children from Residential Pesticide Exposure - Thousands of children are exposed to toxic pesticides despite child-resistant packaging. Many accidental poisonings of young children are preventable. Using less lethal pesticides, reducing the concentration of active ingredients in products and improving packaging are recommended. (M. Spann, Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, D.C.; ENVR 43; Monday, Aug. 23, 2:30 p.m.; Convention Center, Room 209. See page 89 in the final program.)
