How Environmental Pollution Impairs Brain Development — and How to Protect the Brains of the Next Generation

Philippe Grandjean

Environmental Ethics and Science Policy Series

  • Explains how industrial chemicals are causing a silent pandemic of chemical brain drain.
  • For the first time links vulnerable development of our complicated brain circuitry to functional changes caused by environmental pollutants.
  • Exposes how a combination of academic naiveté, negligence by regulatory authorities, and irresponsible interference by vested interests has created a public health crisis of chemical brain drain.
