Bruce Lanphear

Bruce Lanphear, MD, MPH, a Professor at Simon Fraser University, has conducted research on the impact of toxic chemicals on children’s health for over 25 years. He led studies used by federal agencies to set standards for lead in air, water and house dust, and his studies were the impetus for federal agencies to conclude that no amount of lead is safe for children. Dr. Lanphear has served on numerous science advisory committees of the US EPA, the Centers for Disease Control, the National Toxicology Program of the National Institutes of Health, and the American Academy of Pediatrics. He is currently a member of the US EPA’s science
advisory panel for the national air lead standard. Dr. Lanphear produces videos to show how our health is inextricably linked with the environment and to elevate efforts to prevent disease.
