The CARE Study will assess arsenic, lead, mercury, and other chemicals in your body and provide information on what you and your family can do to reduce your contact with these chemicals.

The goal of the California Regional Exposure (CARE) Study is to measure and compare environmental chemicals in people across the state. This information will support efforts to reduce chemical exposure in Californians and improve public health. Visit the CARE website to take a 2-minute survey at www.cdph.ca.gov/CARE
