The <a href="http://www.nationalchildrensstudy.gov/Pages/default.aspx" target="_blank">National Children's Study</a> is the largest long-term study on children's health ever done in the U-S. It seeks to recruit pregnant women or women expecting to be pregnant and then follow their children all the way to their 21st birthdays. Researchers will collect data from the children's environment to see how that correlates to any number of health problems that may develop.
