Project TENDR and Their Advocacy
Project TENDR, which means Targeting Environmental Neuro-Development Risks, is a group of professionals–child advocates, health experts, and volunteer scientists–aiming to reduce, if not totally eliminate, children’s exposure to toxic pollutants and chemicals.
Lead author Stephanie Engle, who is also a professor of epidemiology at the University of North Carolina, reported that they already have “enough evidence” to be alarmed by the effects of phthalates, a class of synthetic chemicals, to the learning, attention, and behavior of kids.
