Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue is soliciting manuscripts that use birth cohort follow-up data to assess ranges of health outcomes. Perinatal heavy metals, POPs exposures, and their associations with neurodevelopmental indicators from birth to adolescence will be considered. Papers exploring dose-response and time-lag effects of different chemicals yet to be fully understood are also welcome. This Special Issue will address the existing puzzle of different exposure levels and combinations of exposures.
