INCHES will disseminate information and initiate research on the relationship between environmental factors and child health. Solid facts and good examples are made easily available on the Internet as the network develops. Parents, researchers and scientists, children’s organizations, children themselves are all potential partners with a stake in INCHES.
Children are more susceptible to most environmental hazards than previously thought. Children are in a dynamic state of growth, as many vital systems such as the nervous, immune, and respiratory systems are not fully developed at birth. Because children are still developing, exposure to environmental hazards may result in disruption of their normal development and may cause damage.
