Abstract

A symposium entitled Health Risks Associated with Prenatal Metal Exposure was held at the 33rd Annual Meeting of the Society of Toxicology (SOT) in Dallas, Texas. The symposium was cosponsored by the Metals and Reproductive and Developmental Specialty Sections of SOT and was designed to elaborate the health risks associated with in utero exposure to metals commonly found in the workplace and/or ambient environment on the mother and developing offspring. Epidemiological and toxi-cological evidence that demonstrates the health effects and underlying mechanisms associated with exposure to arsenic (As), lead (Pb), and methyl mercury (MeHg) were discussed, as well as the legal ramifications and personal implications associated with prenatal metal exposure. The following is a summary of each of the individual presentations.
