NYT- OpEd- The Womb Is No Protection From Toxic Chemicals
In this opinion piece in the New York Times Dr. Frederica Perera, the Director of the Columbia Center for Children's Environmental Health discusses toxic exposure in the womb. Dr. Perara explains that contrary to past beliefs that children were safe during pregnancy we now know that chemicals, pollutants, and viruses can affect a baby even before birth. For this reason she speaks out about the budget cuts to the Environmental Protection Agency, by President Trump.
