Save The National Children’s Study

Parents08logoWe are all worried that environmental toxins may harm our children, and yet we desperately need more solid research to identify the real risks. Pediatricians, public health experts and parents have fought for years to get the National Children’s Study off the ground. This groundbreaking nationwide study will follow 100,000 babies for 20 years to determine the impact of various environmental factors on their health and development—and its first findings should be available in 2010. However, President Bush has allocated no funds for the study in his FY 2009 budget. The study received $111 million in FY 2008 and planners hoped for $192 next year so that this important study could continue as planned. Please let your senator and representatives know that you want them to support funding for this crucial research.
