st see patients with health issues related to the environment, and the majority of parents have expressed worry about their children's exposure to environmental poisons. Furthermore, childhood diseases related to the environment in American children, such as lead poisoning, asthma and cancer, cost Americans billions annually.

The group of experts included representatives of National Academy of Sciences, Institute of Medicine, Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, Association of American Medical Colleges, American Public Health Association, Children's Environmental Health Network, George Washington University, Medical University of South Carolina, Children's National Medical Center, Temple University, Oregon Health Sciences University, Rutgers School of Nursing, Northeastern University, Drexel University, Howard University, and the University of North Carolina School of Public Health.

"It's essential that we give more priority to pediatric environmental health," said Leyla Erk McCurdy at the National Environmental Education and Training Foundation. "By following our recommendations, pediatric health care providers will be better equipped to recognize, treat, and prevent diseases related to factors in the environment."
