National Children's Study will follow 100,000 children from before birth to age 21
Link - Next month, the federal government is launching an unprecedented study of how children's environment affects their health. The study will help doctors better treat our children and our grandchildren.
The study will be conducted in 96 areas across the nation, covering every geographic, demographic, ethnic, racial and environmental scenario. Participants will meet face to face with researchers at least 15 times, and they'll intermittently supply data via telephone, computer or mail-in questionnaires. Samples of air, water, dust and soil from their environment also will be collected.
