Our lives are surrounded by chemicals. They are in products we use on our bodies, in plastics we eat and drink from, in pesticides used on food and found in drinking water, and in air and surface cleaners. Many of these compounds have been declared safe for use but new evidence suggests they may be harmful even in "safe" doses. In this community talk, Folami Ideraabdullah, Ph.D., will discuss new findings that show how environmental chemical exposures may be linked to common human diseases. Thursday October 7 at 6:30 at the Center for the Environment Room 300.

David Peden: Environmental Pollutants & Health

Mobile Content Enabled

Dr. Peden is principal investigator for an ongoing study, “Human Health Effects of Environmental Pollutants.”   This study is a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, “to better understand the effect of a number of air pollutants on human health.  This includes studies with volunteers exposed to a number of low-level pollutants to see how these impact health. We also test the effect of certain medications on response to pollutants and examine if people with asthma or certain genetic factors have increased risk for pollutant-induced disease.”
