The objectives of this research project are to: (1) devise a community-based participatory epidemiologic study that examines biological markers of fetal and early childhood exposure to metals (lead, manganese, cadmium, and iron), their impact on measures of mental development, and their response to a quasi-experimental randomized trial of nutritional and behavioral interventions; and (2) explore potential effect of stress from living near toxic waste.
