The intracellular transfer of information (biological activation/inhibition) through a signal pathway. In each signal transduction system, an activation/inhibition signal from a biologically active molecule (hormone, neurotransmitter) is mediated via the coupling of a receptor/enzyme to a second messenger system or to an ion channel. Signal transduction plays an important role in activating cellular functions, cell differentiation, and cell proliferation. Examples of signal transduction systems are the GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID-postsynaptic receptor-calcium ion channel system, the receptor-mediated T-cell activation pathway, and the receptor-mediated activation of phospholipases. Those coupled to membrane depolarization or intracellular release of calcium include the receptor-mediated activation of cytotoxic functions in granulocytes and the synaptic potentiation of protein kinase activation. Some signal transduction pathways may be part of larger signal transduction pathways; for example, protein kinase activation is part of the platelet activation signal pathway.

Anthropometric, lifestyle and metabolic determinants of resting heart rate. A population study. (1/1233)

AIM: To clarify the determinants of resting heart rate at the population level in a random sample of the Belgian population. METHODS AND RESULTS: Data of 5027 men and 4150 women aged 25-74 years obtained from a Belgian nationwide survey were analysed. In multivariate analysis, blood pressure strongly correlated with heart rate in men (t = 12.4 for systolic; t = 8.8 for diastolic) and women (t = 12.0 for systolic; t = 7.7 for diastolic). Age (t = -3.4 in men; t = -8.1 in women) and height (t = -3.7 in men; t = -3.1 in women) correlated negatively with heart rate. Smoking raised heart rate in men (1-19 cigarettes.day-1, t = 6.1; > or = 20 cigarettes.day-1, t = 10.3) and women (> or = 20 cigarettes.day-1, t = 3.5). Serum phosphorus correlated negatively with heart rate (t = -3.5 in men; t = -8.3 in women). Serum log alkaline phosphatase (t = 6.7 in men; t = 7.2 in women) and serum protein (t = 5.3 in men; t = 4.4 in women) correlated positively with heart rate. CONCLUSION: At the population level, blood pressure, cigarette smoking, serum alkaline phosphatase and serum protein correlate independently, significantly and positively with heart rate, and age, height and serum phosphorus negatively.  (+info)

In-vitro activity of antimicrobial agents against Neisseria gonorrhoeae in Brussels. (2/1233)

The minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) of 18 antimicrobial agents against 104 strains of Neisseria gonorrhoeae isolated in the Brussels area between January and October 1976 have been measured. The MICs for penicillin G, ampicillin, amoxycillin, carbenicillin, and cephalexin showed a bimodal distribution. The second modus strains of cephalexin (MIC = 6.25 microgram/ml) were relatively resistant to penicillin G (MIC greater than or equal to 0.08 microgram/ml). About 51% of all strains were relatively resistant to penicillin G, 40.5% to ampicillin (MIC greater than or equal to 0.16 microgram/ml), 46% to amoxycillin, and 47.5% to carbenicillin. For cephalexin and cephaloridine, 25% and 8.5% respectively of all strains were relatively resistant (MIC greater than 3.12 microgram/ml). For cefazolin all MICs fell into a range of 0.097--3.12 microgram/ml. Resistance to tetracycline, doxycycline, minocycline, erythromycin, and spiramycin (MIC greater than or equal to 1 microgram/ml) was found in 9.5%, 7%, 6%, 36.5%, and 71% respectively of all isolates. No strains were resistant to rifampicin. For chloramphenicol and thiamphenicol the MICs ranged from 0.39 to 12.5 microgram/ml and from 0.195 to 3.12 microgram/ml respectively. The results for sulphamethoxazole, trimethoprim, and the combination of sulphamethoxazole and trimethoprim in a 20:1 ratio are given and discussed. The fractional inhibitory concentration (FIC) indices have also been calculated. No beta-lactamase-producing strains were found, and a contingency coefficient C has been determined for all the pairs of antibiotics investigated.  (+info)

Trends in mortality from cutaneous malignant melanoma in Belgium. (3/1233)

BACKGROUND AND METHODS: Changes over time of mortality rates from cutaneous malignant melanoma (CMM) in Belgium were analysed, based on people (n = 3695) aged 25-84 years, who died of CMM from 1954 to 1992. All data were collected from the Belgian National Institute of Statistics. For the log-linear analysis and calculation of the average annual change, only the data from 1973 to 1992 were considered. RESULTS: The age-adjusted mortality rates (per 10(5)) for the age group 25-84 years old increased from 0.5 in 1954 to 3.0 in 1992 in men, and from 0.8 in 1954 to 2.2 in 1992 in women. The average annual percentage change in men (-0.003%) was stable over the period 1973-1982, and increased to 4.4% over the period 1983-1992. In women, the average annual increase was 4.6% over the period 1973-1982, and continued to increase to 6.8% over the period 1983-1992. Log-linear analysis showed that the change in rates for both men and women was mainly due to an age-'drift' effect, contrary to the results of the average annual percentage change in men. CONCLUSION: The risk of dying from CMM increased in men and women continuously over the whole period, irrespective of birth cohort. In both men and women, there was approximately a 20% increase in CMM mortality per 5-year period.  (+info)

High frequency of BRCA1/2 germline mutations in 42 Belgian families with a small number of symptomatic subjects. (4/1233)

AIM: The initial risk assessments for BRCA1/2 mutation carriers and estimates of carrier frequencies were based on extended pedigrees with a large number of symptomatic subjects. When counselling based on BRCA gene mutation analysis was initiated, we faced requests for counselling mostly from members of small families with only two or three affected members. We report on the likelihood of finding a BRCA mutation in such small families. METHODS: In the first 100 families that came for oncogenetic counselling since September 1994, a BRCA1/2 gene mutation screen was initiated if there were two or more symptomatic first degree relatives, if one of them had ovarian cancer, or if one breast cancer was diagnosed before the age of 50 years. RESULTS: BRCA gene mutations were found and confirmed by sequencing in 14 out of 42 families (33%); 10 mutations were in the BRCA1 gene and four in the BRCA2 gene. Our findings indicate an increased probability of detecting a BRCA gene mutation when ovarian cancer occurred in the family. There is no increased probability of detecting a mutation with increasing numbers of breast cancers. Only 22% of the eligible presymptomatic family members opted for testing. The presymptomatic female carriers currently prefer breast surveillance rather than prophylactic surgery. CONCLUSION: BRCA1/2 gene mutation testing can be done with reasonable efficiency in the Belgian population when there are two symptomatic family members. The availability of testing does not lead to a high frequency of requests for testing by presymptomatic family members.  (+info)

Plasma homocysteine concentration in a Belgian school-age population. (5/1233)

BACKGROUND: Total plasma homocysteine (tHcy) is an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease in adults. Data for children and adolescents are lacking. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to provide a reference range for tHcy and to explore the relation between tHcy and nutritional indexes in a Belgian pediatric population. DESIGN: tHcy, folate, and vitamin B-12 were measured in 647 healthy children (353 girls and 294 boys) aged 5-19 y. RESULTS: The tHcy distribution was, as in adults, skewed to the right [geometric mean (-1 SD, +1 SD): 7.41 micromol/L (5.51, 9.96)]. Concentrations were lowest in younger children and increased with age. After the tHcy distribution was examined according to age, 3 age ranges were distinguished: 5-9 y [6.21 micromol/L (5.14, 7.50)], 10-14 y [7.09 micromol/L (5.69, 8.84)], and 15-19 y [8.84 micromol/L (6.36, 12.29)]. We observed no significant differences in tHcy values between girls and boys in children aged < 15 y; in postpubertal children, however, concentrations were higher in boys than in girls. In the 3 age groups, folate was inversely correlated with tHcy; the negative relation between tHcy and vitamin B-12 was less strong. Familial cardiovascular disease was more frequent in children who had hyperhomocysteinemia. CONCLUSIONS: These observations suggest that in children, as in adults, genetic, nutritional, and endocrine factors are determinants of the metabolism of homocysteine. The significance of tHcy values in childhood and young adulthood in terms of predicting cardiovascular risk in adulthood should be investigated.  (+info)

Cross-border alliances in health care: international co-operation between health insurers and providers in the Euregio Meuse-Rhine. (6/1233)

On behalf of the European Commission, a Cross-Border Health Care Project was undertaken to explore how citizens living in the Euregio Meuse-Rhine can obtain improved access to health services in the Member States concerned: Belgium, Germany, and The Netherlands. Main attention of the project is focused on practical issues of cross-border health care. The first results have shown that the new cross-border health alliances resulted in improved possibilities for patients to access more health care facilities than before. The creation of health care alliances could also be an example for future collaboration between the countries in Western, Central, and Eastern Europe. This paper also analyses the rights of patients on cross-border care in the Euregion.  (+info)

AIDS: is health education the answer? (7/1233)

In the absence of a vaccine or effective treatment, prevention of infection with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is presently the only feasible option for the control of AIDS. Most transmission is related to high risk behaviours, and attempts to change these behaviours are key objectives of many AIDS Control Programmes. Health Education, or Information, Education and Communication (IEC) strategies have been developed to achieve these objectives. Yet few evaluations of health education programmes have been carried out, and the intimate relationship between AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases is often ignored. Behaviour has a multitude of determinants, and consequently no simple approach focusing on one aspect of behaviour can be expected to be successful. Not only does knowledge need to be imparted, but attitudes, beliefs, social- and peer-group norms need to be addressed. The development of IEC programmes is hampered by the specific routes of transmission of the HIV, involving sensitive areas of human behaviour, and by a lack of knowledge about these behaviours. Nevertheless, a number of seemingly successful programmes have been carried out. Active participation of the target groups appears to be a key factor in success. Although health education makes intuitive sense, rigorous documentation and strict evaluation is necessary to provide its justification and to maximize the potential of this strategy.  (+info)

Amplified-fragment length polymorphism analysis versus macro-restriction fragment analysis for molecular typing of Streptococcus pneumoniae isolates. (8/1233)

Forty-eight pneumococci were genotyped by on-line laser fluorescence amplified-fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) and pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) analysis of chromosomal restriction fragments. Overall, the data generated by the two methods corresponded well. However, with AFLP, clusters were delineated at a higher similarity level, and isolate differentiation was more pronounced. AFLP and PFGE were equally efficient for assessing intraserotype diversity. We conclude that AFLP is a useful alternative to PFGE.  (+info)

Antwerps potential was recognized by Napoleon Bonaparte and he ordered the construction of Antwerps first lock and dock in 1811. Called the Bonaparte Dock, it was joined by a second dock - called the Willem Dock after the Dutch King - in 1813. When the Belgian revolution broke out in 1830, there was a well-founded fear that the Dutch would blockade the Scheldt again but, in the event, they contented themselves with levying a stiff toll. Fortunately, the young Belgium had friends in Britain and particularly in the person of Lord Palmerston, who believed the existence of Belgium would be beneficial to Britain, and that, in consequence, it was important to make sure that the newly born state was economically viable. With his support, the Belgian government was able to redeem the Dutch Toll in 1863. By that time, the Kattendijk Dock had been completed in 1860 and the all important Iron Rhine Railway to the Ruhr had been finished in 1879. Antwerp then experienced a second golden age and by 1908 ...

The politics of Belgium takes place in a framework of a federal, parliamentary, representative democratic, constitutional monarchy.[3] Sorry, but making Belgian politics sound simple is nigh impossible with two legislative bodies, so lets make it even more difficult. Belgium is divided into three communities: Flemish, French and German-speaking. Furthermore it has three regions: Flemish, Walloon and Brussels. The Flemish region and community have only one shared government, while Brussels has an overall government, a Flemish government,a French government and a bilingual government. The French community unconstitutionally renamed itself the Federation Wallonia-Brussels, forming a federation within a federation. The Flemish politicians proclaimed that all posts containing that name are automatically invalid. Still following? Despite having no farmland at all, Brussels has a minister of agriculture. Belgium as a whole has five ministers of work and five posts of minister-president, divided ...

The original Dutch dialect of Brussels (Brussels) is a form of Brabantic (the variant of Dutch spoken in the ancient Duchy of Brabant) with a significant number of loanwords from French, and still survives among a minority of inhabitants called Brusseleers, many of them quite bi- and multilingual, or educated in French and not writing in Dutch. Brussels and its suburbs have evolved from a Dutch-dialect-speaking town to a mainly French-speaking town. The ethnic and national self-identification of the inhabitants is quite different along ethnic lines. For their French-speaking Bruxellois, it can vary from Belgian, Francophone Belgian, Bruxellois (like the Memellanders in interwar ethnic censuses in Memel), Walloon (for people who migrated from the Wallonia Region at an adult age); for Flemings living in Brussels, it is mainly either Flemish or Brusselaar (Dutch for an inhabitant), and often both. For the Brusseleers, many simply consider themselves as belonging to Brussels. For the many rather ...

On July 9, 2019, the Second Section of the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) released its judgment in the Romeo Castaño v. Belgium case. The ECtHR held unanimously that Belgium had not upheld its obligations under Article 2 of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) when it decided not to execute European Arrest Warrants (EAWs) issued by Spanish authorities seeking surrender of an individual who had been charged with terrorism and murder and who was located in Belgium. In 1981, Colonel Ramón Romeo was murdered by an ETA commando. In 2013, one of the suspects, N.J.E., was arrested in Belgium pursuant to EAWs issued by Spain. Belgium did not execute the EAWs due to concerns that the suspect would have been subjected to human rights violations in violation of ECHR Article 3. This concern was based upon a Report issued in 2011 by the European Committee for the Prevention of Torture in which the Committee criticized the Spanish legal system for issues of, inter alia, incommunicado ...

Seventeenth-century Flemish art is one of the highlights in Western art history. Although the term Flemish is anachronistic and, in fact, primarily refers to the Antwerp school of painting, it is commonly used to describe the Southern Netherlandish baroque art of Peter Paul Rubens, Anthony Van Dyck, Jacob Jordaens, and their contemporaries. It is considered the counterpart of the Northern Netherlandish (or Dutch) baroque art of, among others, Rembrandt and Vermeer. This division in Netherlandish art between Flemish, Counter-Reformation art, and Dutch reformed art-it is an artificial and unsatisfying distinction-is said to have originated in 1585, when, after the fall of Antwerp, the Netherlands were de facto divided into the Southern provinces and the Dutch Republic in the North. The Southern (or Spanish) Netherlands resided under the authority of the king of Spain. They were predominantly Catholic, whereas the Northern Netherlands were officially reformed. Flanders was but one province in the ...

Belgium - Belgium and World War I: As international tensions heightened during the summer of 1914, Germany made plans to besiege France by crossing Luxembourg and Belgium, despite their neutrality. The two countries refused free passage to the German troops and were invaded on August 2 and August 4, respectively. The Belgian army retired behind the Yser (IJzer) River in the west of Flanders and held this position until 1918. During the war, the Belgian government sat at Le Havre, France, while King Albert I, as commander in chief of the army, remained with his troops in unoccupied Belgium. In 1916 the Belgian Catholic Party government was
Purpose: To describe a standardized, xenogenic-free protocol for the manufacture of limbal epithelial stem cell grafts and a no touch surgical technique for its standardized transplantation. Setting: Antwerp University Hospital, Antwerp, Belgium. Methods: The limbo-amnion composite graft is generated by cultivating limbal epithelial stem cells on a standardized (thermolysin treated and spongy layer removed) amniotic membrane, stretched within an interlockable amnion ring. The cells are cultured in CnT-20 medium with the addition of 1% human AB serum for a period of 2 weeks. Fibrin glue is applied to the surgically prepared recipients cornea and in one fluid motion, the composite graft within the amnion ring construct is transferred from culture and positioned onto the graft bed. The required size is cut out at the level of the limbus by means of a trephine and/or microsurgical scissors. Results: The lightweight, plastic interlockable ring offered stability to the graft during culture, ...
Brussels Airport distinguishes itself worldwide by virtue of its specialised cargo infrastructure for the transport and handling of pharmaceutical and biotechnological products. With innovations such as the airside pharma transporter and an exhaustive collaboration with all logistics partners, the airport has been fully committed to the transport of temperature-sensitive products and uninterrupted cold chain transport for several years. Brussels Airport and IATA developed the CEIV Pharma certificate program together and Brussels Airport was the first airport in the world to receive this CEIV Pharma certificate in 2015 from IATA.. The International Cargo Airport of the Year Award in India recognises this pioneering role of Brussels Airport. The airport transported 536,000 tons of cargo per aircraft last year and experienced an 18% increase in the transport of pharmaceuticals. India is a very important country in terms of the production and transportation of pharmaceuticals. Belgium is also a ...
Symbolically and materially, the Roman Catholic Church remains in a favorable position. Belgium officially recognizes three religions: Christianity (Catholic, Protestantism, Orthodox churches and Anglicanism), Islam and Judaism.In the early 2000s, there were approximately 42,000 Jews in Belgium. The Jewish Community of Antwerp (numbering some 18,000) is one of the largest in Europe, and one of the last places in the world where Yiddish is the primary language of a large Jewish community (mirroring certain Orthodox and Hasidic communities in New York, New Jersey, and Israel). In addition, most Jewish children in Antwerp receive a Jewish education. There are several Jewish newspapers and more than 45 active synagogues (30 of which are in Antwerp) in the country. A 2006 inquiry in Flanders, considered to be a more religious region than Wallonia, showed that 55% considered themselves religious and that 36% believed that God created the universe. On the other hand, Wallonia has become one of Europes ...
On March 3, King Philippe of Belgium signed into law a euthanasia bill passed by lawmakers on Feb. 13. This law exposes Belgian children under the age of 18 to the possibility of being euthanized, making Belgium the first country in the world to expose children of any age to such a risk.. It is naïve to think that this law wont be abused. Alex Schadenberg of the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition noted that 32% of the assisted deaths are done without request, and 47% of the assisted deaths go unreported in the Flanders region of Belgium. The 2012 euthanasia statistics also show that there was a 25% increase in the number of assisted deaths in Belgium.. Medicine that inflicts death is no medicine at all. Even in the fifth century B.C., the Greek physician Hippocrates knew what medicine was and was not. His oath states: I will apply dietetic measures for the benefit of the sick, according to my ability and judgment; I will keep them from harm and injustice. I will neither give a deadly drug to ...

All values presented in this section are for 100 grams of Brussels sprouts, either raw or cooked (meaning boiled, drained and with added salt). As general observations go, Brussels sprouts are recommended in any diet (they are especially useful when aiming for weight loss) due to their containing extremely low amounts (virtually negligible) of cholesterol and other saturated fats. The sprouts are also an excellent source of dietary fiber, Vitamin C, Vitamin A and Vitamin K while also scoring decent points for their concentration of Potassium, Manganese, and Folate. Raw Brussels sprouts have an ideal caloric ratio - as three-quarters are represented by carbohydrates, 6 percent by fat and 19 percent is protein. The situation changes somewhat in the case of the cooked variety as the amount of fat doubles at the expense of both protein and carbs. In both cases, 100 grams of Brussels sprouts account for about 3 percent of the sugars needed to lead a healthy life, which is a first-class glycemic ...
Benefits Of Brussels sprouts. Brussels sprouts belong to the Brassica family of plants and are a vegetable that bears similarity to a mini-cabbage. This mini cabbage has a diameter of about one inch and grow in bunches. Each bunch contains about 20 to 40 Brussels on the stem and the height of the plant is approximately two to three feet.

They are usually added in the preparation of cold salads and also make an excellent side dish. Brussel sprouts are an extremely nourishing food and have numerous benefits to our health:. 1.Rich source of vitamin C ...
Luckily, I had toted home my stalk-full of brussels sprouts, and was ready to play. Now to be honest, I love roasted brussels sprouts like crazy. It was hard to hold myself back. But you probably already have a few recipes for those, like this one, where I tossed halved brussels sprouts with shallots and maple, and roasted to a golden browned but tender nirvana.. Nope, I wanted to get a salad going that really played up the nutty, sweet flavor of the sprouts. Looking in the fridge, I saw that bottle of fabulous pumpkinseed oil, and the die was cast. Shredded brussels with pumpkinseed oil and toasted pumpkinseeds would be a perfect way to celebrate the intense freshness of these little buds. So, I impatiently lopped off the sprouts and composted the woody stalk.. After that, I felt lazy, so I did all the work with a food processor. Yep, I love my food processor for making sturdy veggies into slaws and salads. Dropping the sprouts thru the feed tube took hardly any time.. Good thing, because I had ...

The Belgian government, which declared loot boxes to be a form of gambling earlier this year, definition reportedly launched a criminal investigation into EA after the publisher refused to modify FIFAs randomised card pack box boxes in order to comply with the countrys gambling laws. Failure to adhere to these laws - which include ensuring that minors are unable to access the gambling elements within a definition - is illegal.. Following the ruling, Blizzard, Valve, and 2K Games all elected to disable loot boxes in their games in Belgium. EA, however, has done nothing, and as a result according to Belgium publication Metrovia Google Translate is now the subject of a criminal investigation by the Brussels public prosecutors office. If it decides to prosecute, the case will go to court. The Belgium governments Gaming Commission considers loot boxes to be a game of chance because players dont know exactly which items a box may contain gambling purchasing it..

For those who dont eat fish or seafood, eating enough omega-3 fatty acids can be a challenge. Plant foods only contain alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), a type of omega-3 fatty acid thats used less effectively in your body than the omega-3 fats from fish and seafood. This is because your body can only convert ALA to the more active forms of omega-3 fatty acids in limited quantities. For this reason, you would need to consume a greater amount of ALA omega-3 fatty acids to meet your daily omega-3 needs, compared to if you were getting your omega-3 fats from fish or seafood. Brussels sprouts are one of the best plant sources of omega-3 fatty acids, with 135 mg of ALA in each half-cup (78-gram) serving of cooked Brussels sprouts. Omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to reduce blood triglycerides, slow cognitive decline, reduce insulin resistance and decrease inflammation. Including a few servings of Brussels sprouts in your diet each week can help you easily meet your omega-3 fatty acid needs, with a ...

(99 days) F-1 hybrid. Steady sales increases have made Gustus our #1 brussels sprouts variety. CRs find from 2009, the coldest summer in forty years. He had never grown such robust brussels sprouts plants before or since. Wise man the late Michael Zuck of Bangor, Maine, judged Gustus as the absolute pinnacle of the brussels sprouts breeders art.

In 2009 they showed not a hint of rot, even after two hurricane rains. A representative sample of 10 weighed a respectable 6 oz. Won our taste test with a smooth texture and no cole-ish aftertaste. Enjoy them with gusto! Tested negative for BR and BL.

BRUSSELS - Levels of formaldehyde exceed World Health Organisation (WHO) limits in 91 percent of Belgian homes, one of the countrys leading consumer watchdogs claimed on Tuesday.. Formaldehyde can cause cancers in sufficiently high concentrations and Test Achats says more should be done to control levels of the gas in Belgian homes.. The gas is used in the fabrication of a large number of household products including paper, cosmetics, detergents, kitchenware and bathroom utensils.. Test Achats studied amounts of formaldehyde in 95 Belgian houses and in 72 percent of cases it found concentrations of the gas were higher than 10 milligrammes per cubic metre - the maximum level advised by the WHO.. The organisation said levels of the gas were likely to be particularly high in poorly ventilated and overly hot rooms.. Test Achats wants all of Belgiums governments to set clear rules on formaldehyde levels.. At present only the Flemish administration has regulations governing concentrations of the ...

SAITAMA, Japan (AP) - Japan coach Tom Hovasse apologized to Belgium for letting his emotions get the best of him after the exciting end to their quarterfinals matchup in the womens basketball tournament. It was understandable. After all, making it to the medal round at the Olympics is a big deal. Saki Hayashi hit a 3-pointer with 15.2 seconds left, and Japan advanced to the semifinals, edging Olympic newcomer Belgium 86-85 Wednesday after the Belgian Cats missed a potential game-winner at the buzzer. I felt bad for my overexuberant celebration, Hovasse said. I didnt mean any disrespect to Belgium. I literally lost my mind for about 20 seconds after the buzzer went off. It was amazing. I hadnt felt that way in a long, long time. Japan joined the U.S. and Serbia in the semifinals of the womens basketball tournament Friday and will face 2012 silver medalist France, a 67-64 winner over 2016 silver medalist Spain. Hovasse said this is definitely the biggest win in Japans history. Until ...

In 2002, the Centre for Environment and Health in Flanders, Belgium started a human biomonitoring program. For 1679 adolescents, residing in nine study areas with differing pollution pressure, hormone levels and the degree of sexual maturation were measured. Possible confounding effects of lifestyle and personal characteristics were taken into account. Participants from the nine different study areas had significantly different levels of sex hormones (total and free testosterone, oestradiol, aromatase, luteinizing hormone) and the thyroid hormone free triiodothyronine, after correction for confounders. Significantly higher hormone concentrations were measured in samples from participants residing in the area around the waste incinerators, while significantly lower values were found in participants residing in the Albert Canal zone with chemical industry. Sexual maturation of boys as well as girls tended to be somewhat slower in the industrial city of Antwerp and in the Antwerp harbour compared ...
Proponents of the Death With Dignity suicide laws that are currently allowing people in Washington, Oregon, and Montana to kill themselves may want to consider the tragic end of twin brothers in Belgium who decided they didnt want to live anymore.. The 45-year-old brothers, identified by USA Today as Marc and Eddy Verbessem, were both deaf, and had recently learned that they were soon to go blind as well. That news led them to the conclusion that they would rather die than become dependent upon others. While Belgium supposedly allows euthanasia only in cases of unbearable suffering, and a local doctor had denied the Verbessems request to help them die, the two found an eager helper in David Dufour, a doctor at Brussels University Hospital who agreed to assist at their suicides by lethal injection December 14. Dufour told German television network RTL that the brothers were very happy to be able to end their lives, and he was only too glad to help.. It was a relief to see the end of ...
