MARYLAND CHILDREN’S ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH PROGRESS REPORT

The 2013 Maryland Children’s Environmental Health Progress Report is a publication by MDEHN that  focuses on the environmental health concerns associated with pesticides, toxic chemicals, air and water pollution,  hydraulic fracturing for natural gas extraction (‘fracking’) and climate change.  Maryland has made much progress,  and yet still there are many remaining opportunities to protect our children from exposure to toxics in the air, water, land and consumer products.
