EPA Launches Children's Environmental Health Database
Detail: EPA Launches Children's Environmental Health Database. In early
November, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) launched a
searchable database, called TEACH (Toxicity and Exposure Assessment
for Children's Health), with over 1,400 references to chemicals that
have the potential to affect children's environmental health. The
database is designed to improve the information base related to
children's environmental health risks by providing a listing and
summary of scientific literature applicable to children's health
risks due to chemical exposure." TEACH features a list of 16
different chemicals, including arsenic, vinyl chloride, and several
pesticides.
