Status of inflammatory biomarkers in the population that survived the Bhopal gas tragedy: a study after two decades. (2/3)

Bhopal gas tragedy is considered as one of the world's worst industrial disaster. Approximately, 3,000-6,000 people died and 200,000 injured due to the leak of 40 tons of methyl isocyanate (MIC) gas from a pesticide plant. We aimed to decipher any persistent and subtle immunotoxic effects of MIC in the survivors of the tragedy. The study was divided into 3 groups i.e. group I (n=40); Age and gender matched non-exposed healthy controls recruited from places within the geographical region of Bhopal but from unaffected zones, group II (n=40); Age and gender matched non-exposed healthy controls recruited from places well outside geographical region of Bhopal and group III (n=40); Age and gender matched MIC exposed subjects from affected zones inside geographical region of Bhopal and the status of inflammatory biomarkers (IL-8, IL-1beta, IL-6, TNF, IL-10, IL-12p70 cytokines and C-reactive protein) were analysed. The results displayed a significant increase in the levels of all circulating inflammatory biomarkers in the MIC exposed group in comparison to non-exposed cohorts. A toxin induced genetic and/or epigenetic alteration seems to be the likely underlying cause. However, further studies are essential for both mechanistic understanding and clinical implications of these patterns.  (+info)

BHOPAL, India -- Thousands protested in India Saturday against the countrys decision to compete in the London Olympics despite sponsorship of the Games by a US firm linked to the 1984 Bhopal gas tragedy.. Marking the 27th anniversary of the industrial disaster which killed tens of thousands of people, protesters gathered at two sites in the central city of Bhopal to demand India pull out from the Games, which are sponsored by Dow Chemical.. Dow Chemical bought Union Carbide, the firm blamed for the lethal gas leak, a decade after the company had settled its liabilities with the Indian government by paying $470 million for Bhopal victims.. This protest is against both the Olympics and government indifference towards gas victims, activist Rachna Dhingra of the Bhopal Group for Information and Action told AFP.. As placard-waving protesters attempted to block trains travelling to and from the Bhopal railway station, police baton-charged the crowd, which responded by pelting stones at the ...

1. The height of apathy towards the concerns of the Bhopal gas victims both by the Central as well as the State Governments can be gauged by the fact that till date only a fraction of the Bhopal gas victims have been issued health booklets. Issuance of health booklet is crucial for recording the medical history of a gas-victim in terms of diagnosis, investigations and treatment. In the absence of such health booklets and the consequent inability of a gas-victim to prove the degree of injury suffered by him/her has resulted in the gas-victim being denied adequate compensation based on the nature of the injury that was inflicted on him/her. As a result, the bulk of the gas-victims have been awarded compensation for minor/temporary injury although many of the victims had actually suffered serious/permanent injury and are still undergoing medical treatment or have since died due to the seriousness of the injuries that were inflicted on them by the Bhopal disaster. We again demand that health ...

By Iram Zahra. BEIJING-(October 25, 2010-M4relay) - An outbreak of severe diarrhea has killed at least 135 people in rural central Haiti and sickened more than 1000 others who seek treatment at crowded hospitals. Health workers suspect the disease is cholera but are still awaiting tests results.. Haitian health officials also fear an outbreak in densely populated tent cities that have poor sanitation and meager medical facilities. The epidemic has grown in the past few days but has not yet reached the major displaced persons camps in and around the capital Port-au-Prince, which was ravaged by a 7.0 magnitude earthquake in January. The outbreak according to health workers however has the potentials of unleashing a public health disaster. The outbreak comes months after a devastating earthquake left 1.2 million people homeless and affecting an estimated three million people. The Haitian Government had reported that about 230,000 people died, 300,000 injured and 1,000,000 made homeless. Haitian ...

The Union Carbide tragedy shook people up. They had seen, with all the nakedness, the harms that the state causes, harms that in the West are usually hidden behind a softer façade. People in Bhopal had seen the utterly irresponsibility of a state that had monopolized the crisis management machinery and then hijacked it when the crisis erupted. Society realized that behind all the brave sounding talk of the state were extraordinarily spineless and timid people, with absolutely no sense of individual responsibility. They are worse than animals, people would say.. Over those months, I saw people becoming increasingly anti-statist. There were open discussions about making bribery legal, making it a mere transaction cost rather than a huge impediment. People frequently discussed the possibility of privatizing not only industries but particularly law and order, and crisis management machinery.. More of the same. Within months Bhopal faced another wave of social turmoil. On this occasion, the Indian ...
At a press conference in Calcutta on Sunday 3rd March 2013, doctors from Bhopal confirmed that congenital birth defects in affected areas of the city are seven times higher than usual rates.. Third generations are increasingly born with psychological and physical deformities as a result of widespread water contamination following the worlds worst industrial disaster in 1984.. Over 28 years ago, on the 3rd December 1984, 27 tonnes of deadly gas leaked from a Union Carbide pesticide plant which was built in a heavily populated area of the city. To this day the abandoned factory stands leaking chemicals into the environment nearly 30 years on. The water contamination was widespread around the factory several years prior to the disaster due to the indiscriminate dumping of toxic waste from the plant since it started manufacturing pesticides in 1969.. Surveys have shown that in affected areas of Bhopal 3,000 children out of 20,000 families are suffering from multiple and serious congenital ...

This could be remembered as the summer when the climate crisis got real. Theres the heatwave that killed nearly 800 people in the Pacific Northwest; floods in Germany, China, and elsewhere; and metastasizing wildfires in Oregon and California.. Increasingly, climate change is driving public health disasters, economic losses, ecosystem destruction, and worsening inequality. Under these circumstances, strong reactions are to be expected. We should be alarmed. But add a dose of alarm to minds and hearts already exhausted and grieving the impacts of the pandemic, and theres the potential for something we absolutely cannot afford: paralysis. Fortunately, theres an approach called multisolving that can move us from paralysis to action. Heres the gist: because climate change is connected to so many other crises, climate action can have benefits for health, prosperity, and equity. Understanding this, we can build new alliances for positive action.. This work is urgent. We need investments in flood ...

Under the first director, William Penfold, CSL commenced operation in the vacant Walter and Eliza Hall Institute building at the Melbourne Hospital in 1918, before moving to its purpose-built Parkville premises in the following year. After ongoing disputes with the Commonwealth Department of Health and its director, (John) Howard Cumpston, Penfold resigned in 1927 and was replaced by Frederic Morgan. Soon after Morgans appointment, CSL was drawn into a serious public health disaster when a batch of its diphtheria toxin-antitoxin was ...

President Obama awarded Prusiner the National Medal of Science in 2010 to recognize the importance of his work. Unfortunately, this groundbreaking research is being ignored. This negligence is fueling a public health disaster around the world, as critical pathways are being ignored and mismanaged. The mismanagement also is contributing to the global surge in autism.. In June 2012, Prusiner confirmed that Alzheimers, Parkinsons, Huntingtons and even ALS are prion diseases similar, if not identical, to Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. The primary difference being which part of the brain the disease attacks first. The other variable is that there are now an unknown number of prion mutations. Mutations of these deadly prions are the common denominator between all forms of TSEs. Most of the carnage is being swept under the rug as the problem escalates.. There is now real evidence of the potential transmissibility of Alzheimers, says Thomas Wiesniewski M.D. a prion and Alzheimers researcher at New ...
And for Dr. Ludwig, the fact that the studys findings were less dire than previous studies does not shake his belief that there is a looming public health disaster. Dr. Flegals study, for instance, did not directly address the sharp increase in childhood obesity. Once obese children enter adulthood, Dr. Ludwig said, then all of the previous relationships that have been observed may no longer apply because theyll be carrying those extra pounds for so many more years.. In other words, with regard to the childhood obesity epidemic, he added, we are still in the quiet before the storm.. Mr. Jacobson says that it is shortsighted for Consumer Freedom to make such a big deal over the number of obesity deaths. He contends that obesity is just one symptom of the prevalence of horrible diets, and that the same eating habits that cause people to gain weight may also deprive them of essential nutrients, antioxidants and fiber to help keep their bodies healthy and free from chronic disease.

Traditional measures of disease occurrence (eg, cumulative incidence) do not address change or stability or are limited to stable cohorts (eg, incidence) and may thus lead to erroneous conclusions. To illustrate how different measures can be used to detect disease dynamics, we investigated sex differences in the occurrence of asthma and wheezing, using a population-based study cohort that covered the first 18 years of life. Methods: In the Isle of Wight birth cohort (n = 1456), prevalence, incidence, cumulative incidence, ...

December 3, 2004 will mark twenty years since the people of Bhopal awoke from their sleep, choking and near-blinded, as methyl isocyanate (MIC) and other toxic gases escaped from Union Carbides pesticide plant. Overnight, a city of 800,000 people became a gas chamber, extinguishing the lives of at least 8,000 people. Union Carbides gas cloud was just the beginning. The settlement Union Carbide negotiated with the Indian government is grossly insufficient and does not cover medical costs or economic losses for those exposed, or for their children, who have also been affected. The hazardous chemicals have not been removed from the plant itself, and continue to contaminate the drinking water for thousands of Bhopal residents.. The International Campaign for Justice in Bhopal (ICJB) calls the ongoing efforts by Union Carbide and its new owner, Dow Chemical, to evade liabilities for Bhopal, a classic case of corporate crime gone unpunished. Bhopal survivors have said from the start, We never ...

On August 8, the Indian government announced that it would meet many of the demands of the survivors of the 1984 pesticide plant explosion in Bhopal. The government announced that it will take legal action on the civil and criminal liabilities of Union Carbide and its owner, Dow Chemical Company, and that it will establish an Empowered Commission on Bhopal to address the health and welfare needs of the Bhopal survivors as well as environmental, social, economic and medical rehabilitation. PAN Executive Director Kathryn Gilje called the news a great, hard-won and long overdue victory. The success came only after a 172-day demonstration: survivors walked 500 miles from Bhopal to New Delhi, camped at a protest site at the historic Jantar Mantar observatory in Delhi, suffered arrests and police beatings, and finally launched a 60-day hunger fast that was joined by more than 800 people around the world. PAN Action Center members participated in a global action that flooded the Prime Ministers ...
The Associated Press. BRIDGEHAMPTON, New York (AP) - The former head of the chemical company responsible for the gas leak that killed thousands of people in Bhopal, India, 25 years ago has been haunted for years by the worlds worst industrial disaster, his wife said Saturday, Aug. 1.. An Indian court issued a new warrant Friday for Warren Anderson, the former head of Union Carbide Corp., for the leak of 40 tons of poisonous gas that killed 10,000 people in Bhopal.. Anderson was arrested after the disaster in the central Indian city but quickly left the country.. U.S. authorities have not moved to extradite him and he has maintained homes in Florida, Connecticut, and in Long Islands Hamptons.. His wife, Lillian, answered the door Saturday at the couples yellow farmhouse. Her husband is 89 and in poor health, she said.. We covered everything way back when, she said. Hes been haunted for many years by the accident.. Lillian Anderson was not aware of the new arrest warrant and said, Its ...
The crowds spanning all ages of Indian society shouted and waved signs as they walked through Bhopals streets. At least three protest rallies, organized by different groups of Bhopal residents and aid groups working with disaster victims, were to converge outside the gates of the abandoned Union Carbide pesticide plant later Friday. A leak of 40 tons of poisonous gas from the pesticide plant on Dec. 3, 1984, killed at least 10,000 people in Bhopal and affected more than 555,000 others, although the exact number of victims has never been clear. Many died over the years due to gas-related illnesses, like lung cancer, kidney failure and liver disease. Dont forget the victims of the genocide in Bhopal! and Death to Dow! the protesters shouted. Their banners carried similar slogans, accusing Union Carbide and Dow Chemical Co. of inadequate compensation and medical help for the victims. Michigan-based Dow Chemical bought Union Carbide Corp. in 2001. Another group of protesters staged a mock ...

Researchers explore how soil-improving Pseudomonas bacteria digest carbaryl. The memories of the Bhopal gas tragedy that claimed thousands of lives and injured a few lakhs of people, haunts us even after three decades. The culprit was a toxic gas used to produce a pesticide called Carbaryl, in the Union Carbide India Limited Factory. Sadly, the use of Carbaryl continued amid growing concerns about its side effects. The need to completely remove it from the environment or break it down into less harmful substances is of primary importance. Dr Phale and his team from the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IIT Bombay), and collaborator Dr Sharma from Institute of Genomics and Integrative Biology (CSIR-IGIB), Delhi, have achieved a significant breakthrough in identifying bacteria which can clean up this pesticide from the environment and understanding exactly how the breakdown occurs.. Carbaryl, most commonly sold under the trade name Sevin was a preferred pesticide for agricultural as well ...

Abstract. When the war was over in 1945, Germany was a country with no government, little functioning infrastructure, millions of refugees and homeless people, and huge foreign armies living largely off the land. Large parts of the country were covered in rubble, with no clean drinking water, electricity, or gas. Hospitals overflowed with patients, but were short of beds, medicines, and medical personnel. In these conditions, the potential for epidemics and public health disasters was severe. This is a study of how the four occupiers-Britain, France, the Soviet Union, and the United States-attempted to keep their own troops and the ex-enemy population alive. While the war was still being fought, German public health was a secondary consideration for them, an unaffordable and undeserved luxury. But once fighting ceased and the occupation began, it rapidly turned into a urgent priority. Public health was now recognized as an indispensable component of creating order, keeping the population ...
Gardiner Harris, Washington correspondent for the New York Times. …When I became a South Asia correspondent for the New York Times three years ago, my wife and I were both excited and prepared for difficulties - insistent beggars, endemic dengue, and summertime temperatures that reach 120 degrees. But we had little inkling just how dangerous this city would be for our boys. We gradually learned that Delhis true menace came from its air, water, food, and flies. These perils sicken, disable, and kill millions in India annually, making for one of the worst public health disasters in the world. Delhi, we discovered, is quietly suffering from a dire pediatric respiratory crisis, with a recent study showing that nearly half of the citys 4.4 million schoolchildren have irreversible lung damage from the poisonous air… (5/29).. ...

Quantitative methods play an important role in the fields of epidemiology and statistics. The intent of this review series is to provide readers with clearly written chapters on classical statistical and epidemiologic methods as well as new techniques in the literature that are not currently covered in standard textbooks in the field. Example topics of interest include: • Randomized clinical trials • Gene-environment interaction studies • Longitudinal studies • Cohort studies • Case-only studies • Case-referent studies • Misclassification bias • Selection bias • Confounding by indication • Population-projection methods • Poisson / log-binomial regression • Beta-binomial regression • Logistic regression • Survival analysis • Sample size computation • Sinusoidal models • Log-linear models •
Extra resources for A History of Epidemiologic Methods and Concepts. Sample text. The risk of dying from tuberculosis was 100%; the average time to death was 2 years. Thus, the death rate was [100 + 2 years=] 50% per year or< 1% per week, etc. (Farr, Part II). A measure of risk is implicitly related to a duration! We can express a risk of the same event over 1 week, 1 year, 10 years, etc. 2) demonstrated, using a hypothetical example, the importance of this caveat in the context of a therapeutic trial comparing the ability of a vaccine to prevent disease attacks. By dividing the number of disease attacks by the total number of subjects inoculated during the year, we implicitly compute a risk over one year. Why is this so? Because low-risk constitutions for chronic diseases are usually much more common than high-risk constitutions. The histogram in Figure 2 (corresponding to Figure 3 of Roses paper) shows the prevalence of various categories of serum cholesterol levels in 246 men aged 55-64 at ...
Greek literature boasts three great writers of tragedy whose works are extant: Sophocles, Euripides and Aeschylus. The largest festival for Greek tragedy was the Dionysia, for which competition prominent playwrights usually submitted three tragedies and one satyr play each. The Roman theater does not appear to have had the same tradition of tragedy writing. Seneca adapted Greek stories, such as Phaedra, into Latin plays; however, Senacan tragedy was most likely closet drama, meant to be read rather than performed. A favorite theatrical device of many ancient Greek tragedians was the ekkykl ma, a cart hidden behind the scenery which could be rolled out to display the aftermath of some event which had happened out of sight of the audience. This event was frequently a brutal murder of some sort, an act of violence which could not be effectively portrayed visually, but an action of which the other characters must see the effects in order for it to have meaning and emotional resonance. A prime ...
