*the live webinar date has passed, you can watch the recorded webinar below*

Webinar Description:  Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common neurodevelopmental disorders in children, with a prevalence of 5-10%.  Genetic and environmental factors have been implicated in the development of ADHD.  Research regarding the association of ADHD and pre- and post-natal environmental exposures will be discussed.  Research suggests a correlation between ADHD and exposure to toxins such as phthalates, bisphenol A (BPA), tobacco smoke, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), polyfluoroalkyl chemicals (PFCs), and some heavy metals.  Exposure to tobacco smoke in particular has been well established as a risk factor for the development of ADHD. Further, understanding the connection of environment to the neurologic development of children will highlight the need for avoidance.
