ABSTRACT
The environment of children – here primarily in Central and Eastern Central Europe – is manifold and consists of parents and teachers; sibs and peers; homes, towns, and traffic; food and water; sports and music; electronic media; ionising radiation; ultraviolet radiation electromagnetic fields; allergens; bacteria and viruses; chemical residues; asbestos; lead and mercury, etc. Here, we will look at the “classical” environment, on anthropogenic physical and chemical conditions and substances that are, or possibly can be, noxious to children’s (and adults’) health.
