LECTURE 10
Slide: Childrens Environmental Health
-There are different exposure patterns between children and adults
-Children are exposed in different ways (different pathways of exposure) and their patterns
of exposure are different from adults
-Limited diet: children have higher metabolic rates; children consume 3-4 times more food
in proportion to their body size than adults, and consume fewer types of food (large
quantities of specific foods), drink more water relative to their body weight
oWhen food/water is contaminated, children take in more contaminants relative to
their body size
-Unique behaviour: children are not as sanitary (touch mouths without washing hands), at
risk of ingesting small objects, at risk of lead ingestion (contaminated paints, toys),
children are naturally curious and like to put things in their mouths
-How and where they spend time: prone to skin infections more than adults because may
crawl on contaminated grass, play in contaminated sand, etc., have higher risk of getting
fungal diseases
-Impact of short statue: the breathing zone of children is lower than the adult breathing
zone (around 4-6 ft), children breathe closer to the ground
-Environmental health: children have different skin; more permeable to chemicals, larger
surface area of intestines means more of a chance that the contaminants will be absorbed,
7-8 hours are necessary for children to excrete food (relatively long time) increasing the
chance the contaminant is absorbed, children breathe twice as more, are more active than
adults, etc.
Slide: Womens Health and Environment
-Womens health has a role in reproduction and in the bearing and nursing of their
children, influences the health of their children (woman who has good health will be
taking care of her child’s health in turn)
oPregnancy is a sensitive period for the development of their children

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
