Dr Landrigan is an international leader in public health and preventive medicine. He is a pediatrician and his pioneering research on the effects of lead poisoning in children led the US government to mandate removal of lead from gasoline. His leadership of a National Academy of Sciences Committee on pesticides in children’s diets resulted in the passage of the Food Quality Protection Act in 1996, a major US federal pesticide law and the first environmental statute to contain specific protections for infants and children.
