EPA proposing to cut research center that protects kids' health
With American kids facing so many environmental problems every day, the Environmental Protection Agency should be working to protect children from toxic exposure. The National Center for Environmental Research works on the prevention and treatment of childhood asthma, preterm births, leukemia, immune system disorders, neurodevelopmental problems, autism spectrum disorder and obesity. These are all important public health issues that we need scientists working on. The EPA should not close the National Center for Environmental Research.
