Project TENDR Releases Consensus Statement about Toxic Chemicals and Brain Development

For the first time, leading scientists, medical experts, and health advocates have reached consensus that scientific evidence clearly shows toxic chemicals are contributing to neurodevelopmental disorders. On July 1 st , a consensus statement was published in EHPonline which outlines the risks and actions that can be taken.

This agreement among leading scientists and health experts would not have been possible ten years ago, but the research is now abundant and clearly shows that toxic chemicals are a serious threat to brain development.

TENDR is led by Co-Directors Maureen Swanson, leader of the Healthy Children Project of the Learning Disabilities Association of America and Irva Hertz-Picciotto, professor of epidemiology and environmental health at UC Davis Department of Public Health Sciences.
