The quickly advancing science of the developmental origins of disease has profound implications for the law and how we think about protecting our youngest citizens. I describe aspects of this recent science, outline existing laws that aim to protect children and the rest of us, and argue for premarket testing and review laws for all chemical substances. There is also considerable cognitive dissonance between how we treat subjects of medical testing and how we treat citizens by means of our chemical policies.
