Jill Stein, the Green Party Presidential Candidate
co-authored a report in 2000 on the effects of environmental chemicals
on the health of children:
'The intersection between environmental chemicals and child development is a new area of public health science. It is only in the past few years that we have begun to grasp the potential health effects of even slight disturbances in child development. . . By reducing and eliminating exposures to specific environmental chemicals through the use of regulatory bans, development and promotion of alternative agents and exposure minimization, we may, in time, be able to reduce the occurrence of neurodevelopmental disability.'
