Each new edition of the American Public Health Association manual on Control of Communicable Diseases in Man is an event in the public health world. The eighth edition has been prepared by a committee of fifteen outstanding authorities in the field, with the collaboration of the principal American and British health organizations, which designated representatives to consult with the committee in order to reach common agreement as to facts and opinions. The aim is to provide an informative text for easy reference by public health workers, professionals in the medical field, military physicians, and health workers stationed in foreign countries. The format and its pocket-size add to its usefulness; it does not of course substitute for standard textbooks. While it largely expresses American practices and ideas, it has been translated into French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Serbo-Croatian, Japanese, Chinese, Thai, and Finnish, which should give it a wider usefulness.

Youve bought the propaganda from the nuclear industry. They say its low-level radiation. Thats absolute rubbish. If you inhale a millionth of a gram of plutonium, the surrounding cells receive a very, very high dose. Most die within that area, because its an alpha emitter. The cells on the periphery remain viable. They mutate, and the regulatory genes are damaged. Years later, that person develops cancer. Now, thats true for radioactive iodine, that goes to the thyroid; cesium-137, that goes to the brain and muscles; strontium-90 goes to bone, causing bone cancer and leukemia. Its imperative … that you understand internal emitters and radiation, and its not low level to the cells that are exposed. Radiobiology is imperative to understand these days. ...

The doctors letter concluded by listing 30 peer-reviewed studies establishing a clear link between air pollution and a range of serious adverse human health effects. Not surprisingly, Bartons office has failed to respond to the doctors.. (2) Utility industry lobbyists representing the Southern Company and the utility coalition, the Electric Reliability Coordinating Council, have stated that there are no incremental health benefits associated with [EPAs mercury and air toxics standards]. These lobbyists have denied further that reducing power plants hazardous air pollution, including mercury, actually does anything to protect public health. The lobbyists even went so far as to dispute the association between premature deaths and particulate matter pollution..

One need to only look to the U.S. Public Health Service recommendation on fluoridation (July-August 2015) to see that there is no evidence that community water fluoridation causes a myriad of health issues. As the U.S. has been fluoridating water systems for 70 years, we have yet to see any evidence of these claimed ill health effects in communities that fluoridate their water. Hundreds of organizations, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Academy of Family Physicians, and the American Public Health Association, support community water fluoridation as a proven public health intervention.. Dental disease is the most common childhood disease and is associated with diabetes, adverse pregnancy outcomes, heart disease, and lost school and work hours. Fluoridated water decreases tooth decay by nearly 25% in children and adults, and it saves communities money by reducing costs and lost work hours spent on repairing tooth ...
2013 rained down another round of extreme weather events on communities across the country. Destructive floods in Colorado, months of prolonged drought in Texas and California, and dangerously high temperatures in the Northeast were just some of the record-breaking events from the year. The media reported on many of these disasters. But they often missed a key dimension of the story: climate change is also a disaster for our health.. In fact, climate change is one of the most serious public health threats facing our nation, according to Dr. Georges Benjamin, Executive Director of the American Public Health Association. Children, the elderly, and communities struggling with poverty are among the most vulnerable to climate-related illness and disease. Yet they are not the only ones. The extreme weather events of 2013 revealed once again that many of us live in harms way. Intense heat is one of the biggest threats. NOAA and NASA say that 2013 was one of the 10 top hottest years ever worldwide. ...

Biogas and biofertilizer production from anaerobic digestion of local organic solid waste in Algeria is an attractive choice for greener and cleaner environment. In this paper, the study focused on the effect of co-digestion of municipal solid organic wastes (MSW) and camel dung (CD) for the quality production of biogas (methane) and bio fertilizer products. The concentration of methane production is the preeminent aim of this work. The experiment was set by feedstocks preparation where organic waste was mixed with tap water at 1:1 ratio and it allowed to digest at temperature of 40 °C. The operating hydraulic retention time (HRT) was set at 35 days. Physicochemical properties of feedstocks and constituent elements of the digestate were determined by American Public Health Association methods. The experimental study indicated that underdefined operational conditions such as constant organic loading rate (OLR) of 0.6 kg per day, hydraulic retention time (HRT) of 35 days and temperature of 40C ...

The growth behavior of Staphylococcus aureus in fresh Cheese (Minas and Muzzarella) during their shelf-life was studied. The possible injury of this microorganism caused by the increasing acidity was also investigated. Raw milk was inoculated with 10(6) cells/ml (S. aureus FRIA-100) and the cheese production was performed according to normal procedures. Minas and muzzarella cheese were stored at 7 degrees C for 40 and 60 days, respectively. At 2-3 days intervals, the following analysis were performed: acidity, pH, S. aureus counting using agar Baird Parker by the traditional methods and by the method recommended by the American Public Health Association to evaluate the reparation of injured cells. We had a secure indication of the presence of injured S. aureus when acidity was in the range of 0.7 to 0.8% expressed in lactic acid and when the cycle was 1.3 log higher than the traditional one ...

MEDIA RELEASE: Public Health Association of Australia Raise over $2 billion and improve health: Pre-budget submission There are opportunities to raise over $2 billion dollars in revenue at the same time as improving public health according to the Public Health Association of Australia (PHAA).. President of the PHAA, Associate Professor Heather Yeatman has called on Treasurer Wayne Swan to keep public health in mind when framing the budget. Public health requires long term thinking and an understanding that a modest increase in spending on prevention now will bring substantial benefits in terms of both health and costs in years ahead. The PHAA has identified a series of areas of public health where it is appropriate to focus additional expenditure in this budget, said Associate Professor Yeatman..
