  • dust
  • In adults, chronic exposure to biomass smoke, ambient air pollution, and opportunistic exposure to fumes and dust are associated with an increased risk of developing chronic bronchitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), lung cancer and respiratory infections, including tuberculosis. (springer.com)
  • 2000
  • We compared exposure history and the main characteristics of PEM and PLM cases diagnosed in the period 2000-2007. (lww.com)
  • phthalates
  • A novel method for calculating potency-weighted cumulative phthalates exposure with implications for identifying racial/ethnic disparities among U.S. reproductive-aged women in NHANES 2001-2012. (springer.com)
  • concentrations
  • Research by an Indiana University environmental scientist and colleagues at universities in Iowa and Washington finds that potentially harmful growth-promoting hormones used in beef production are expected to persist in the environment at higher concentrations and for longer durations than previously thought. (eurekalert.org)
  • processes
  • Numerical simulations performed in this study can help to predict the potential impact of environmental processes on contaminant fate to more effectively understand the potential for these unexpected effects. (eurekalert.org)
  • The publication, "Coupled reversion and stream-hyporheic exchange processes increase environmental persistence of trenbolone metabolites," will appear in the journal Nature Communications and is now available online. (eurekalert.org)
  • Therefore, the use of other zeolites may result in potential exposure to erionite for the workers and the general population who use the zeolites in a variety of processes and products. (wikipedia.org)
  • methods
  • These combined efforts are shaping the future of military medicine by supporting enhanced individual exposure assessment methods. (health.mil)
  • The study of complex exposure mixtures has prompted development of novel statistical methods. (springer.com)
  • analytical
  • EMSL Analytical, Inc. offers comprehensive environmental and industrial hygiene testing services for manganese and other regulated substances. (emsl.com)
  • Surveys
  • The surveys include human breast milk samples from a wide range of countries with large differences in food consumption patterns and environmental levels of POPs. (wikipedia.org)
  • individuals
  • The division also provides the names of these individuals along with their exposure information to the VA. The VA then notifies individuals of their potential exposure, provides treatment, if necessary, for these individuals and adjudicates any claim for compensation. (health.mil)
  • For human sampling, the focus is on the general population rather than on individuals who may have suffered high exposure to POPs. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is well established that most individuals with dog allergy also suffer with additional environmental allergies. (wikipedia.org)
  • among
  • We suggest that further validation work would aid practicing researchers in choosing among existing and emerging statistical tools for studying exposure mixtures. (springer.com)
  • Environmental exposures are among the many possibilities that have been proposed to explain the increase. (aappublications.org)
  • Environmental exposures are also among the many possible explanations for this increase. (aappublications.org)
  • For example, exposure to malaria-bearing mosquitoes over many generations may have caused the higher allele frequency among certain ethnic groups for the sickle hemoglobin (HbS) allele, a recessive mutation that causes sickle-cell disease but confers resistance against malaria. (wikipedia.org)
  • environment
  • What we release into the environment is just the starting point for a complex series of chemical reactions that can occur, sometimes with unintended consequences," said Adam Ward, lead author of the study and assistant professor in the IU Bloomington School of Public and Environmental Affairs. (eurekalert.org)
  • iii) Active gene-environment correlation occurs when an individual possesses a heritable inclination to select environmental exposure. (wikipedia.org)
  • Twin and adoption studies have provided much of the evidence for gene-environment correlations by demonstrating that putative environmental measures are heritable. (wikipedia.org)
  • Studies in which researchers have measured child-specific aspects of the environment have also shown that putative environmental factors, such as parental discipline or warmth, are moderately heritable. (wikipedia.org)
  • potential
  • Finally, we summarize the potential preventive and therapeutic strategies for management of COPD induced by non-cigarette smoke exposure. (springer.com)
  • workplace
  • Questionnaire data indicated 96 percent of the women were never-smokers and 44 percent were exposed to secondhand smoke through husbands or workplace exposure. (medindia.net)
  • impact
  • When the incinerator project was approved, the residents of Kettleman City filed a lawsuit against Chemical Waste Management, Inc., alleging that their environmental impact report did not comply with the California Environmental Quality Act. (wikipedia.org)
