CEF Posts 2 New Environmental Health Research Briefs
In a collaborative effort by CEF assistant Linden Ellis, and research assistants Kimberly Go, Debbie Yan Lee and Monty McGee, "Cars in China: Personal Vehicles Make Tracks" is an unusually long brief that touches on many of the environmental health impacts of China's booming auto industry. Since the brief was written, gas prices have risen in China and the government has pledged to make efficient cars an industry priority in the coming years, indicating the current fluidity of this market. The writing and editing team is indebted to Harvard research fellow Hongyan He Oliver, who read the piece and offered suggestions and updated facts. Growing up in a Leaded Environment: Lead Pollution and Children in China", written by Debbie Lee with research assistance from CEF intern Jing Chen, describes the sources and affects of lead poisoning, particularly in children in China.
