Abstract

The report finds that reducing environmental hazards in California could potentially save over $254 million annually in direct and indirect costs to care for children with environmentally-related conditions and $13 billion over the lifetime for all children born each year in California. The report is part of the National Environmental Public Health Tracking (EPHT) Program's Economic Burden of Childhood Environmental Illnesses Project.

Report sections estimate the disease burden and the environmentally attributable economic impact of selected childhood conditions in California related to asthma, cancer, lead exposures, and neurobehavioral disorders. The publication cited other reports that used 2003, 2005 and 2007 California Health Interview Survey data, including: Is Disparity in Asthma Among Californians Due to Higher Pollution Exposures, Greater Susceptibility, or Both? by Ying-Ying Meng et al; and The Burden of Chronic Disease and Injury, California 2013 by the California Department of Health.
