CUMULATIVE IMPACTS AND CHILDREN’S ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH | 2013 Symposium
MORE INFO http://circle.berkeley.edu/kidsCimpacts.html
Prof MARTYN SMITH email@example.com of the University of California Berkeley introduces the EXPOSOME PARADIGM, a new approach to find causes of disease. It involves repeated measurements of environmental chemicals and other markers in biological samples taken from people during critical life stages. Several ‘omic’ technologies promote discovery of previously unknown causes of chronic diseases.
CUMULATIVE IMPACTS of environmental factors and social stressors during early life increase disease in children, hasten onset and increase severity of disease in adulthood, and contribute to health disparities.
