Here are the Q&A videos.
About 3 minutes into the 3rd video you hear Dr. Bradford say that they would have liked to test the children but they didn’t have anything to compare the results to. Well, that’s not true.
The following quote is from Journal of Exposure Science and Environmental Epidemiology (2008)18, 421–429, Relationships between levels of volatile organic compounds in air and blood from the general population, YS LIN, PP EGEGHY AND SM RAPPAPORT.
“NHANES used a complex sampling design, including over-sampling of minorities and young children, and provided sampling weights for constructing national estimates.”
And this quote from the same study shows that there is actually another study that has results for children:
Table 5 also includes results from a study ofV OC levels in blood and air among Minnesota children by Sexton et al. (2005),
Oh! Another one:
Delfino R.J., Gong H., Linn W.S., Hu Y., and Pellizzari E.D. Respiratory symptoms and peak expiratory flow in children with asthma in relation to volatile organic compounds in exhaled breath and ambient air. J Expo Anal Environ Epidemiol 2003: 13(5): 348–363.
And even another:
