Hearing a lot about "BPA-free" lately? Even if you're not sure what BPA is, you're pretty sure you don't want it in the baby bottle or blender you're about to buy. BPA, short for the chemical bisphenol-A, leeches into food and beverages, and has been identified as possibly carcinogenic to fetuses, infants, and children. As consumers grow ever weary of the chemicals in their midst - like BPA
, and also parabens
, and others - The Deirdre Imus Environmental Health Center® is devoted to learning how these toxins affect our children's bodies.
Thanks to your continued concern over the years, we're conducting research
and making discoveries about children's exposures to chemicals found in household cleaners, personal care products, food, toys, and more. We want to know how these chemicals affect children in the short and long term, what might be done to prevent such exposures, and how to eliminate these toxins from our lives entirely.
Translating this knowledge into information you can use is a core part of our mission. Backed by the healthcare team at Hackensack University Medical Center, our Center stands ready to ring in the New Year with this important work. You can also visit our website, where tips for greening your life
and updates on the latest environmental news
can help you avoid carcinogens, improve your family's health, and make our Earth a better place to live.
We are and always have been committed to protecting the most innocent among us and preserving a healthy future for us all.
From all of us at the Center, thank you for making a difference in children's health research.
