The advantages of longitudinal cohort studies for evaluating long term impacts of prenatal and early life exposures on children’s health and nuerodevelopment will be illustrated using examples in the U.S. and developing nations. Predicting such risks requires analysis of complex exposures, dosimetry and metabolism, and interpretation of urinary biomarkers. Implications for risk assessment, risk communication and intervention will be explored.
