Conversations on Children’s Health

Toxic Chemicals, Toxic Stress
Invisible Threats to Children’s Health

Toxic chemicals and toxic stress: For children, both dramatically increase the risk of serious, even life-threatening illness. They are also more common than you may realize. In this edition of Conversations on Children’s Health, our UCSF faculty discuss how a child’s environment can negatively impact health—be it exposure to emotional trauma or toxic substances. Learn how our experts are tackling these threats and how you can help minimize risk at home and in your community
