Special Issue "Children's Exposures to Chemical and Non-Chemical Stressors Found in Their Everyday Environment"
A special issue of International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (ISSN 1660-4601). This special issue belongs to the section "Children's Health".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 August 2020.
Children are exposed to a wide variety of chemical and non-chemical stressors at each lifestage throughout their lifecourse, potentially impacting their lifelong health and well-being. However, we currently do not fully understand how chemical and non-chemical stressors from the built, natural, and social environments interact to influence health and well-being across the human lifecourse. There is growing recognition that environmental and social factors interact in complex ways to determine human health and well-being, and that optimizing environments for healthy and sustainable living requires an understanding of this complexity.
For this Special Issue, we invite submissions that examine the interrelationships between chemical and non-chemical stressors on children's health and well-being with an emphasis on understanding how non-chemical stressors act as modifiers of chemical exposures. Papers addressing policy implications, community health with a focus on child-specific environments, and translation of in vivo/in vitro systems to human health may also be considered.
