 General Information

Chemicals, fumes, pollution, allergens, and viruses are common in our environment, and sometimes they can make us sick. Maybe you have mysterious headaches that only occur on weekends. Or you develop nausea and a rash after moving into a newly built home. Such symptoms can be caused by toxins commonly found in our homes, workplaces, and communities.

 Michigan Resources, Support Groups, Listservs & Websites

Healthy Children Project Monthly e-News - This e-newsletter is a publication of the Learning Disabilities Association of Michigan's Healthy Children Project (HCP). Its purpose is to select and summarize the most pertinent, current information about environmental factors that impact developing fetuses, the newborn or young children and the actions we can take to minimize or eliminate those factors. It will be published every 4 to 6 weeks.

 

Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) Mercury Poisoning Prevention Information - For the past several decades, Mercury (Hg), has received increasing attention as a serious pollutant of concern due to its toxic and bioaccumulative properties. In aquatic systems mercury is often converted by bacteria to methylmercury (the organic form of mercury) which can be magnified up the aquatic food chain hundreds of thousands of times, posing a potential risk to humans and wildlife that consume fish.
