    "The National Children's Study is a long-term research project that will examine the environmental influences on children's health and development. It will be the largest long-term study of children's health and development ever to be conducted in the United States. The Study will involve 100,000 children, from before birth to age 21, to better understand the link between the environments in which children are raised and their physical and mental health and development. For the Study, the "environment" is defined broadly to include physical surroundings; biological and chemical factors; geography; and social, educational, behavioral, family, and cultural influences. By linking multiple environmental factors to multiple health and developmental outcome measures, the Study has the ability to pinpoint the root causes of many of today's major childhood diseases and disorders, and to determine not only which aspects of the environment are harmful, but also which are harmless or helpful to children's health and development." - p. 7
