Children’s Health Collection 2015


The Children’s Health Collection comprises peer-reviewed research articles, reviews, commentaries, editorials, news, and Science Selections published in EHP from October 2014 through September 2015 (http://www.ehponline.org/).

  • CH Collection Cover 2015Children’s Health Collection 2015 comprises abstracts of all relevant articles published in EHP from October 2014 through September 2015: peer-reviewed research articles, news features, Science Selections, and editorials. Abstracts are featured for each research article published in an issue, and hyperlinks take readers directly to the full article online (http://www.ehponline.org/). The Science Selections are noted just below the related research.

    As in previous Collections, the three main sections—Disease Outcomes, Exposures, and Methodologies and Populations—contain all research that has appeared in the Children’s Health section of each EHP issue as well as relevant reviews and commentaries, research that involves both adult and child cohorts and both animal and human components, diseases with fetal or childhood origins, experimental models with direct application to children’s health and pediatric practice, and topics of general interest to children’s health researchers and advocates. Some specific topics (e.g., Food Safety, Insecurity, Nutrition) are featured in news articles but not in research.

    New this year is the inclusion of Advance Publication articles—articles that have been accepted, but not yet copyedited and added to a specific issue—published online through September. These appear at the end of each topic area; each includes the doi information but not an abstract. The doi link will access the most recent form of the article, whether Advance Publication or the copyedited final version.

    As developing topics, analyses of green (and blue) space show how these physical spaces provide benefits in, for example, birth weight and neurodevelopment as well as reductions in obesity; and analyses of multiple exposures reflect the complexity of interactions and outcomes. New categories are Natural Gas and Fracking, demonstrating this technique’s potential health impacts and environmental damage, and Global Health. Besides the many articles in other sections that analyze data from around the world, Global Health includes an extensive review of various exposures throughout Latin America as well as efforts to address them, and a study of biomonitoring throughout Europe. In addition, studies that combine multiple cohorts (e.g., ESCAPE, NewGeneris), databases, methodologies, and analyses of multiple environmental factors and outcomes reflect efforts to harmonize data and address the variety of exposures and outcomes around the world. The Navigation Guide systematic reviews provide methods for synthesizing these data, and articles on climate change reflect trends that have global impact.

    Please see https://ehp.niehs.nih.gov/special-collections/ for all the yearly Children’s Health collections. This collection is also available as a 6MB PDF.

    FOCUS | The WASH Approach: Fighting Waterborne Diseases in Emergency Situations

    Wendee Nicole

    Refugees with 20-liter jerrycans
    Emergency situations are prime settings for outbreaks of diseases spread by fecal–oral transmission. In times of scarcity, water tends to go first to drinking and cooking, while hygiene often gets short shrift. Having adequate water is not enough, however; health-protective behaviors are critically important for preventing the spread of waterborne diseases.

    Charles W. Schmidt

    Three Indian children
    Worldwide, stunted growth affects an estimated 165 million children under age 5. Reducing stunting is a global priority for international health organizations and donors, but it’s clear that nutritional interventions alone won’t get the job done. That’s because stunting isn’t just a nutritional problem; it’s also an environmental one.

    FOCUS | Pollinator Power: Nutrition Security Benefits of an Ecosystem Service

    Wendee Nicole

    Scientists have only recently calculated the extent to which food supplies depend on pollinators. Now several new studies suggest that reduced populations of bees and other pollinators may adversely affect not only the marketplace but also the availability of essential nutrients in the human diet, potentially increasing malnutrition in areas already struggling with this issue.

    Prototypes of reformulated baby care products
    In recent years, under mounting pressure from advocacy groups, a number of major manufacturers and retailers have begun eliminating controversial ingredients from the personal care products they produce and sell. Companies are investing considerable resources to reformulate their products, even as they universally defend the questioned ingredients.
