Children's Health  
 
 

 

  Children may be more vulnerable to environmental exposures than adults because:
  • Their bodily systems are still developing
  • They eat more, drink more, and breathe more in proportion to their body size
  • Their behavior can expose them more to chemicals and organisms

Protecting children's health from environmental risks is fundamental to EPA's mission.
