Exposures to chemical and nonchemical stressors during early lifestages impact cognitive ability. In this study, we examined over 100 stressors from the built, natural, and social environments (total environment) to determine their likelihood to influence cognition and observed that 23 had a statistically significant effect. The most impactful stressors during the prenatal period were related to maternal health and lifestyle. During childhood, dietary nutrients (infancy), quality of social interaction (toddler), and exposure to toxic substances (early childhood) had the greatest impact. Indeed, there are complex relationships between a child’s total environment and early cognitive development. View this paper.
