  • lesions
  • It is evident from many different experiments, that the human nucleotide excision repair (NER) apparatus first distinguishes structural DNA perturbations caused by bulky lesions derived from the reactions of metabolically activated environmental carcinogens that enter the human body. (grantome.com)
  • In this project, a systematic approach towards solving this problem is proposed that will identify the kind of carcinogen-DNA lesions that are poorly repaired by NER mechanisms. (grantome.com)
  • Health
  • Environmental influences may already be factors in life expectancy and health in the United States. (rawfoodexplained.com)
  • The WHO Task Force for the Protection of Children's Environmental Health declared in its Bangkok statement that "children are not little adults. (aacrjournals.org)
  • The Third European Ministerial Conference on Environment and Health, held in London in 1999, emphasized the importance of protecting children from undesirable environmental exposures in stating: "We recognize the special vulnerability of children and commit to develop policies and actions to achieve a safe environment in which children can develop to their highest attainable level of health. (aacrjournals.org)
  • However, the apparent scientific corollary to this position is that children are particularly or even uniquely vulnerable to environmental health hazards, i.e ., that the consequences of exposure in children are more severe than the consequences in adults. (aacrjournals.org)
  • Zimmetry Environmental provides indoor air quality (IAQ) testing services to help identify known carcinogens to protect people's health. (environmental-expert.com)

  • Part II: "Prevention and Action" offers environmental health leadership training, including tools for working towards reducing toxic pollution from consumer products, and brainstorming ways to speak out about this issue in our communities. (cepottawa.org)
  • Telone came under fire recently when the Oakland-based Center for Environmental Health sued its maker, Dow Agro-Sciences. (ceh.org)
  • defense
  • The human nucleotide excision repair (NER) system represents a critically important first line of defense against bulky polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and other carcinogens that are ubiquitous in our urban and industrial environments. (grantome.com)
  • One of the critical lines of defense of the human body to these environmental carcinogens is DNA repair, specifically by the nucleotide excision repair (NER) mechanism that deals with bulky DNA damage. (grantome.com)
  • toxic
  • The EPA continues allowing oil and gas companies to engage in fracking - injecting a secret cocktail of toxic ingredients, including known carcinogens, thousands of feet underground, posing a massive and ill-understood risk of long-term groundwater contamination. (credoaction.com)
  • California
  • The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency does not limit annual use of Telone, and California is the only state to restrict how much can be applied, said Charlotte Fadipe, spokeswoman for the state Department of Pesticide Regulation. (ceh.org)

  • Among the subjects covered are risk assessment of chemical/physical agents and biological factors of environmental significance, basic research and methodology, theoretical modelling, host susceptibility and mechanistic studies, and protection of environment and ecosystems. (bioxbio.com)
  • susceptible
  • 1 The premise behind this principle is that children have an exceptional vulnerability to both the acute and chronic effects of environmental hazards and that they are disproportionately susceptible by comparison with adults. (aacrjournals.org)
