Today's children face more chronic illness than children growing up just two generations ago.

From learning disabilities and autism to childhood cancers and more, many chronic diseases and disorders are on the rise. Increasingly, science points to pesticides and other toxic chemicals as part of our children's environment, and significant contributors to their ill-health.

What is the role of pesticides in triggering the chronic health conditions that kids today are increasingly facing? Two experts will join the conversation, including:


Physician Bruce Lanphear, MD, MPH, senior scientist at the British Columbia Children's Hospital Child & Family Research Institute and professor in the Faculty of Health Sciences at Simon Fraser University, British Columbia
Kristin Schafer, MA, senior policy strategist at Pesticide Action Network and lead author of the 2012 report "A Generation in Jeopardy: how pesticides are harming our kids' health and intelligence"
