Father’s Day Report released by Canadian Partnership for Children's Health and Environment

The Canadian Partnership for Children's Health and Environment (CPCHE) has released a Father's Day Report urging greater awareness among parents, especially fathers, about environmental risks to boys.

The report summarizes the evidence about these environmental risks and shows how for a number of health outcomes such as asthma, cancer, learning and behavioural problems, and birth defects, boys seem to be  faring worse than girls. The report also discusses the role that fathers' play in ensuring children's environmental health.

Like CPCHE's other educational materials, CPCHE's Father's Day Report  seeks to raise public awareness.
