ENVIRONMENTAL MEDICINE: THE ROLE OF TOXINS IN CHILDREN’S MENTAL HEALTH

30.00

JOHN GANNAGE, MD

At a time of unprecedented chemical production and human exposure to environmental toxicants, Dr. Gannage will explore their impact on mental health, particularly in children.  Disorders of neurodevelopment are a global pandemic, with toxins such as heavy metals, pesticides and petroleum-derived products having a major impact.  Concepts such as early programming, the susceptibility of children, immature detoxification, retention toxicity, maternal-fetal transfer and epigenetics will be discussed.  Research will be presented correlating exposure to ADHD and autism in particular.
