National Report on Human Exposure to Environmental Chemicals

Click here for file.

This is a news brief about a report released recently by the CDC assessing the US population’s exposure to environmental chemicals. One interesting finding bears on our asthma initiatives: while second-hand smoke exposure has decreased throughout the population, non-Hispanic blacks are still exposed to much higher levels than non-Hispanic whites and Mexican Americans. I have not had a chance to review the report itself, but I plan to take some time to see how else it might relate to our work. If you are interested, the full report is available from the CDC: //www.cdc.gov/exposurereport/default.htm
