Marcella Thompson Publishes Research Article

Marcella Thompson, Ph.D., CSP, COHN-S, recently had a research study published in Environmental Research. The study focused on U.S. women of childbearing age and the levels of pollutants in their blood levels that could potentially harm development of fetuses and babies. The three main environmental chemical pollutants found in nearly 23% of the study population that met median blood levels were lead, mercury and polychlorinated biphenyls. In a press release by Brown University, Thompson says of the research, “It points out clearly the need to look at health outcomes for multiple environmental chemical co-exposures.” Thompson is an environmental health state agency liason for Brown University and a professional member of ASSE’s Greater Boston Chapter.
