Leading pesticide researcher receives prestigious award from ESPE

Recently, Professor Charles Sultan, who is an expert advisor to Réseau Environnement Santé (RES), received the prestigious André Prader award from the European Society for Paediatric Endocrinology (ESPE). It rewards the team at the University Hospital of Montpellier that specializes in paediatric endocrinology. The doctors, led by Professor Sultan, have shown a link between pesticide exposure and risk of birth defects. HEAL has worked with Professor Sultan in several Paris Appeal conferences and is delighted to hear this.

You can hear more about Prof. Sultan’s work in an investigative TV programme that showed on France 2 Thursday, November 10 on the environmental pollution and early puberty in young girls.
