A new guide from the Radio-TV News Directors Association is aimed at journalists reporting on the connection between children's health and the environment.
"The Environment & Children's Health: A Journalist's Resource for In-Depth Reporting," is designed to help radio and other reporters explore the subject.
Children in general are much more vulnerable than adults to the effects of a toxic environment, RTNDA stated. They're also more affected by the things they eat and the way they live. Childhood obesity, for example, is a health threat recently in the news and linked to environmental factors.
The guide includes information on the environmental triggers of illnesses like asthma and obesity, story ideas and sources for additional information.
A copy of the guide can be downloaded at www.rtnda.org/resources/childrenshealth.shtml
