Children are exquisitely sensitive to hazards in the environment. Even minute quantities of toxic chemicals can trigger cellular changes that result in disease and disability that affect children across their lifespan. New discoveries in children's environmental health continue to elucidate the profound impacts of chemical, biological, physical and societal hazards on children's health and guide effective intervention.

Textbook of Children's Environmental Health is the landmark textbook channeling scientific findings into evidence-based strategies in children's environmental health. Edited by two internationally recognized pioneers in environmental pediatrics, this second edition presents up-to-date information on the chemical, biological, physical, and societal hazards that confront children in today's world. It presents carefully documented data on rising rates of disease in children with new or expanded chapters covering the climate crisis, biodiversity, racism and environmental injustice, chemicals in food, pesticides, indoor and outdoor air pollution, per- and polyfluoroalkylated substances, microplastics, lead, electromagnetic fields, and the built environment. The volume also offers a critical summary of new research linking pediatric disease with environmental exposures and explores the cellular, molecular, epigenetic, and societal mechanisms underlying diseases of environmental origin.

Authoritative and comprehensive, Textbook of Children's Environmental Health, Second Edition is essential reading for pediatricians, pediatric nurse practitioners, public health workers, and environmental scientists concerned with prevention and control of the environmental hazards that cause disease in children.
