We envision a Maryland where children and adults enjoy clean food, air and water, and benefit from safe environments in their homes, schools and communities.
MARYLAND CHILDREN’S ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH PROGRESS REPORT— The 2013 Maryland Children’s Environmental Health Progress Report focuses on the environmental health concerns associated with pesticides, toxic chemicals, air and water pollution, hydraulic fracturing for natural gas extraction (‘fracking’) and climate change. Maryland has made much progress, and yet still there are many remaining opportunities to protect our children from exposure to toxics in the air, water, land and consumer products.
