Pesticide exposure and childhood development.

[ILLUSTRATION OMITTED]

SALINAS VALLEY, California -- The Center for Environmental Research and Children's Health (cerch) is taking a look at the impact that pesticide exposure can have on children. The CHAMACOS study (Center for the Health Assessment of Mothers and Children of Salinas) involves more than 900 children from low-income, rural and urban households. Areas of focus included exposure to chemicals and the resulting impact on children's health and development. The study began by examining a mother's exposure to pesticides while pregnant. It will continue to follow child participants until the age of 16.
