Article (fulltext): Neurobehavioural effects of developmental toxicity
Summary: http://www.thelancet.com/journals/laneur/article/PIIS1474-4422(13)70278-3/abstract

Neurodevelopmental disabilities affect millions of children worldwide. Although the causes are only partly understood, the number of industrial chemicals known to injure the developing brain has doubled in the past 7 years. The authors of a Review published in The Lancet Neurology have called for a coordinated international approach to control the silent pandemic of developmental neurotoxicity, including mandatory and transparent assessment of untested chemicals for evidence for neurotoxicity, followed by governmental regulation and market intervention.
