The role of domestic factors and day-care attendance on lung function of primary school children. (1/630)

The results of studies examining the relationship of domestic factors to lung function are contradictory. We therefore examined the independent effects of maternal smoking during pregnancy, exposure to environmental tobacco smoke (ETS), the presence of a cat, type of heating and cooking used in the home and day-care attendance on lung function after controlling for socioeconomic status (SES). Nine hundred and eighty-nine children from 18 Montreal schools were studied between April 1990 and November 1992. Information on the child's health and exposure to domestic factors was collected by questionnaire. Spirometry was performed at school. The data were analysed by multiple linear regression with percent predicted FEV1, FVC, and FEV1/FVC as dependent variables. In the overall sample (both sexes combined), cat in the home (regression coefficient, beta = -1.15, 95% confidence interval, CI: -2.26-(-)0.05) and electric baseboard units (beta = -1.26, 95% CI: -2.39-(-)0.13) were independently associated with a lower FEV1/FVC, while day-care attendance (beta = -2.05, 95% CI: -3.71-(-)0.40) significantly reduced FEV1. Household ETS was significantly associated with increasing level of FVC (beta = 2.86, 95% CI: +0.55 to +5.17). In boys but not girls, household ETS (beta = -2.13, 95% CI: -4.07-(-)0.19) and the presence of a cat (beta = -2.19, 95% CI: -3.94-(-)0.45) were associated with lower FEV1/FVC. By contrast, day-care attendance was associated with lower FEV1 (beta = -2.92, 95% CI: -5.27-(-)0.56) and FEV1/FVC (beta = -1.53, 95% CI: -2.73-(-)0.33) in girls only. In conclusion, the results provide evidence that domestic factors and day-care attendance primarily affected airway caliber and gender differences were apparent in the effects of these factors.  (+info)

Prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia and apoptosis in benign prostatic hyperplasia before and after the Chernobyl accident in Ukraine. (2/630)

The prevalence of prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia (PIN) in men who underwent surgery for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) before and after the Chernobyl nuclear accident was studied. BPH samples were obtained by adenomectomy from 45 patients operated in 1984 before the accident (Group I), and 47 patients from the low contaminated Kiev City (Group II) and 76 from high contaminated area (Group III) operated between 1996 and 1998. Their BPH samples were examined histologically and immunohistochemically. The incidences of prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia (PIN) and high grade PIN (HGPIN) were 15.5 and 11.1% in Group I, 29.8 and 14.9% in Grpoup II, and 35. 5 and 19.7% in Group III. The difference between the incidences of PIN in Group I and III is significant (p<0.02). There was increased apoptosis in areas of PIN in Group II and III as compared to Group I (p<0.001). Since apoptosis has been shown to be associated with ionizing radiation and it is now found to be associated with PIN in patients diagnosed after the Chernobyl nuclear accident, this suggests that long-term low dose internal ionizing radiation potentially may cause prostate cancer.  (+info)

8-hydroxy-2'-deoxyguanosine, a major mutagenic oxidative DNA lesion, and DNA strand breaks in nasal respiratory epithelium of children exposed to urban pollution. (3/630)

Southwest metropolitan Mexico City children are repeatedly exposed to high levels of a complex mixture of air pollutants, including ozone, particulate matter, aldehydes, metals, and nitrogen oxides. We explored nasal cell 8-hydroxy-2'-deoxyguanosine (8-OHdG), a major mutagenic lesion producing G-->T transversion mutations, using an immunohistochemical method, and DNA single strand breaks (ssb) using the single cell gel electrophoresis assay as biomarkers of oxidant exposure. Nasal biopsies from the posterior inferior turbinate were examined in children in grades one through five, including 12 controls from a low-polluted coastal town and 87 Mexico City children. Each biopsy was divided for the 8-OHdG and DNA ssb assays. There was an age-dependent increase in the percentage of nasal cells with DNA tails > 10 microm in Mexico City children: 19 +/- 9% for control cells, and 43 +/- 4, 50 +/- 16, 56 +/- 17, 60 +/- 17 and 73 +/- 14%, respectively, for first through fifth graders (p < 0.05). Nasal ssb were significantly higher in fifth graders than in first graders (p < 0.05). Higher levels (2.3- to 3-fold) of specific nuclear staining for 8-OHdG were observed in exposed children as compared to controls (p < 0.05). These results suggest that DNA damage is present in nasal epithelial cells in Mexico City children. Persistent oxidative DNA damage may ultimately result in a selective growth of pr eneoplastic nasal initiated cells in this population and the potential for nasal neoplasms may increase with age. The combination of 8-OHdG and DNA ssb should be useful for monitoring oxidative damage in people exposed to polluted atmospheres.  (+info)

Plasma jet takes off. (4/630)

Thanks to a series of joint research projects by Los Alamos National Laboratory, Beta Squared of Allen, Texas, and the University of California at Los Angeles, there is now a more environmentally sound method for cleaning semiconductor chips that may also be effective in cleaning up chemical, bacterial, and nuclear contaminants. The Atmospheric Pressure Plasma Jet uses a type of ionized gas called plasma to clean up contaminants by binding to them and lifting them away. In contrast to the corrosive acids and chemical solvents traditionally used to clean semiconductor chips, the jet oxidizes contaminants, producing only benign gaseous by-products such as oxygen and carbon dioxide. The new technology is also easy to transport, cleans thoroughly and quickly, and presents no hazards to its operators.  (+info)

Consumption and production waste: another externality of tobacco use. (5/630)

OBJECTIVE: To describe the waste produced by and environmental implications of individual cigarette consumption (filter tips, packages, and cartons) and tobacco manufacturing. STUDY SELECTION: All available articles and reports published since 1970 related to cigarette consumption and production waste were reviewed. DATA SOURCES: Global cigarette consumption data were used to estimate cigarette butt and packaging waste quantities. Data from the Center for Marine Conservation's International Coastal Cleanup Project were used to describe some environmental impacts of tobacco-related trash. Data from the United States Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) Toxics Release Inventory and reported global cigarette consumption totals were used to estimate waste production from cigarette manufacturing. DATA EXTRACTION AND SYNTHESIS: In 1995, an estimated 5.535 trillion cigarettes (27,675 million cartons and 276,753 million packages) were sold by the tobacco industry globally. Some of the wastes from these products were properly deposited, but a large amount of tobacco consumption waste ends up in the environment. Some is recovered during environmental clean-up days. For the past eight years (1990-1997), cigarette butts have been the leading item found during the International Coastal Cleanup Project; they accounted for 19.1% of all items collected in 1997. The tobacco manufacturing process produces liquid, solid, and airborne waste. Among those wastes, some materials, including nicotine, are designated by the EPA as Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) chemicals. These are possible environmental health hazards. In 1995, the global tobacco industry produced an estimated 2262 million kilograms of manufacturing waste and 209 million kilograms of chemical waste. In addition, total nicotine waste produced in the manufacture of reduced nicotine cigarettes was estimated at 300 million kilograms. CONCLUSIONS: Laws against littering relative to cigarette butts could be better enforced. Additional taxes might be levied on cigarette products that would then be directed to environmental clean-up efforts. The tobacco industry should improve the biodegradability of filters, reduce packaging waste, and educate its customers. Worksites and public buildings should be encouraged or required to supply appropriate disposal mechanisms at all building entrances. Public awareness campaigns about the magnitude and prevention of cigarette consumption waste could be developed through partnerships among environmental groups, health organisations, and environmental protection agencies. Tobacco production waste should be a source of concern and regulation by governments throughout the world; it contains numerous chemicals which may be considered health hazards, not the least of which is nicotine produced in the manufacture of low-nicotine cigarettes.  (+info)

Experimental studies on environmental contamination with infected blood during haemodialysis. (6/630)

To assess the relative importance of different postulated modes of spread of hepatitis B in dialysis units, blood charged with various tracer organisms was used in simulated haemodialysis runs in four laboratories, and the resulting contamination of equipment and environment was measured semi-quantitatively. Some airborne spread of the tracer organism occurred when tubing containing contaminated blood was needled as the "patient" went on and came off the dialyser. Virtually no small airborne particles could be demonstrated however in simulated emergencies in which a blood line was disconnected, or even when bottles of blood were dropped on to a hard floor from a height of 2 metres. Bacillus globigii spores from contaminated blood leaked in small numbers into the dialysing fluid through apparently intact coils. T3 phage, with a particle size of the same order as hepatitis B virus, passed in small quantities through the membrane of a Kiil dialyser from blood to dialysing fluid and also in the reverse direction when added to the header tank. A number of other dialysers were also permeable to phage. Visual assessment of the appropriate moment for inserting the venous line into the "patient" at the onset of dialysis was shown to be unreliable, as the displaced fluid from the end of the venous line was already contaminated before it contained visible red blood cells. Considerable contamination of exposed surfaces and of the buttons on the proportionating unit cabinet occurred. Minor visible splashing of blood was a common-place of the laboratory experiments and was shown to be also a common event during routine haemodialysis in two of the dialysis units taking part in the studies.  (+info)

Adhesion of biodegradative anaerobic bacteria to solid surfaces. (7/630)

In order to exploit the ability of anaerobic bacteria to degrade certain contaminants for bioremediation of polluted subsurface environments, we need to understand the mechanisms by which such bacteria partition between aqueous and solid phases, as well as the environmental conditions that influence partitioning. We studied four strictly anaerobic bacteria, Desulfomonile tiedjei, Syntrophomonas wolfei, Syntrophobacter wolinii, and Desulfovibrio sp. strain G11, which theoretically together can constitute a tetrachloroethylene- and trichloroethylene-dechlorinating consortium. Adhesion of these organisms was evaluated by microscopic determination of the numbers of cells that attached to glass coverslips exposed to cell suspensions under anaerobic conditions. We studied the effects of the growth phase of the organisms on adhesion, as well as the influence of electrostatic and hydrophobic properties of the substratum. Results indicate that S. wolfei adheres in considerably higher numbers to glass surfaces than the other three organisms. Starvation greatly decreases adhesion of S. wolfei and Desulfovibrio sp. strain G11 but seems to have less of an effect on the adhesion of the other bacteria. The presence of Fe(3+) on the substratum, which would be electropositive, significantly increased the adhesion of S. wolfei, whereas the presence of silicon hydrophobic groups decreased the numbers of attached cells of all species. Measurements of transport of cells through hydrophobic-interaction and electrostatic-interaction columns indicated that all four species had negatively charged cell surfaces and that D. tiedjei and Desulfovibrio sp. strain G11 possessed some hydrophobic cell surface properties. These findings are an early step toward understanding the dynamic attachment of anaerobic bacteria in anoxic environments.  (+info)

Caught in the middle: should the World Trade Organization settle environmental disputes? (8/630)

Since its inception in 1995, the World Trade Organization (WTO) has arbitrated trade disputes between its members in part by deciding whether unilateral actions by its 134 member nations such as trade bans or restrictions violate international free trade rules and authorizing penalties against members that are found to be noncompliant with such rules. The WTO is criticized by those who believe its emphasis on free trade undermines national environmental and public health protection efforts. Recent disputes over the importation of hormone-treated beef and genetically modified crops have focused attention on how the WTO arbitrates disputes having environmental and public health implications and sparked criticisms as to whether the organization is qualified to do so.  (+info)

Introduction. a) Explain the concepts of negative externalities b) Evaluate three policies that may be used by government to reduce external costs of production. An externality occurs when the production of a good or service has an effect upon a third party. There are 4 types of externalities: negative externalities of production, positive externalities of production, negative externalities of consumption and positive externalities of consumption. This paper shall examine the concepts of negative externalities of production. As I mentioned earlier, an externality occurs when the production of a good or service has an effect upon a third party. If the effect of an externality is harmful, then we are talking about a negative externality. A negative externality of production occurs when the production of a good or service creates external cost that are damaging to other third parties. ...read more. Middle.

Wastefulness in the industrialized world. Many people in Japan and in wealthy North American and European nations have become accustomed to comfortable lifestyles that consume large amounts of energy and raw materials and produce many wastes. A person living in an industrialized nation uses about 10 times the amount of fossil fuels and electric power and produces 2 to 3 times as much municipal waste as a person in a developing country. For a true reduction in pollution, people in the industrialized world would probably have to accept less convenience and luxury in their lives. Solving the problems of global environmental pollution will require the cooperation of governments and industry in all countries, rich and poor, as well as the efforts of individuals all over the world.. ...
Downloadable! We explore the impact of geographical proximity of environmental problems on environmental concern and willingness to pay (WTP) for environmental improvement, with emphasis on the relevance of Ingleharts postmaterialism thesis on this inquiry. A questionnaire was administered to 1565 respondents in Istanbul. The Contingent Valuation Method was used to measure WTP. Sea pollution in Istanbul (local issue), soil erosion in Turkey (national issue) and ozone depletion (global issue) were issues chosen for valuation. The sample was separated into three sub-samples, each being presented with only one issue. Individuals distinguish between local and global environmental concern. People with materialist values rather than postmaterialist values exhibit more concern for local environmental problems. However, postmaterialist values determine WTP for improvement in both the local and the global environmental problems.

Our research shows that increased environmental awareness and investments in China over the past decade have produced results, says Chen.. Economic growth has come at a high price. In the late 1970s Chinas economy began expanding, and the expansion accelerated during the following decades. Environmental pollution kept pace with economic growth.. But the analysis of our data shows a weakening of that relationship for China starting in 1995, Chen says..

It is thought that germ cells and preimplantation embryos during development are most susceptible to endogenous and exogenous environmental factors because the epigenome in those cells is undergoing dramatic elimination and reconstruction. Exposure to environmental factors such as nutrition, climate, stress, pathogens, toxins, and even social behavior during gametogenesis and early embryogenesis has been shown to influence disease susceptibility in the offspring. Early-life epigenetic modifications, which determine the expression of genetic information stored in the genome, are viewed as one of the general mechanisms linking prenatal exposure and phenotypic changes later in life. From atmospheric pollution, endocrine-disrupting chemicals to heavy metals, research increasingly suggests that environmental pollutions have already produced significant consequences on human health. Moreover, mounting evidence now links such pollution to relevant modification in the epigenome. The epigenetics diet, referring
The main purposes of the study were to clarify the conceptual reference of environmental awareness and to investigate the relationship between some individual, socio-economic factors and awareness to environmental issues. In addition, the factors that affect the environmental awareness were also determined. Face to face interviews were done with 975 individuals 25 cities were chosen throughout Turkey, which means at least 2 cities from each region. The models were estimated by the ordered logistic regression. Environmental awareness were evaluated from the standpoints of water, air and soil. Among the pollution categories, people were mostly aware of the pollution in air. In policies related to converting sensitivity to environment to action the Turkish government and institutions should take into account gender, education, income, age, industrial city and number of information source.

Shortly thereafter, two surveys were conducted by environmental health professionals. One was an actual survey of the physical conditions existing within the selected area and the second an informational study of the opinions and attitudes of the population. The survey area was 60 city blocks made up of three-story houses with multiple residences, owned by absentee landlords. These houses which had been homes for a single family of six to nine people, now housed six apartments with 50-60 people. The surveys were used: to determine the existence and level of rodent infestation within the communities; to determine in a more precise manner the number of rat bites that were occurring within a calendar year; and the interest of the citizens to work together to remove food sources and harborage and destroy a good portion of the rodent population. A huge amount of infestation was found along with substantial harborage and rodent entrances into houses. The number of rat bites reported to the ...

The fuel consumption of vehicles is an important part of environmental impact and we are committed to purchasing the most environmentally friendly vehicles possible. Councils Motor Vehicle Code of Practice includes an environmental component which states that the we will progressively shift the motor vehicle fleet to cleaner and more environmentally appropriate vehicles. This shift focuses specifically on the type of fuel used and on fuel economy.. Council has downsized the vehicles in its fleet, and has purchased a number of fuel efficient vehicles and vehicles using alternative fuels to standard unleaded petrol. In the last few years, the number of vehicles using diesel has significantly increased due to their efficiency and longevity compared to other fuel types. This will ultimately result in a reduction in the quantity of fuel used and greenhouse gas emissions generated.. ...
Today, pollution is occurring on a vast and unprecedented scale around the globe. Trends point in two ominous directions: first, toward large and growing releases of certain chemicals - principally from burning fossil fuels - that are now significantly altering the natural systems on a global scale; and second, toward steady increases in the use and release to the environment

The Executive Chairman of Apapa Local Government, Hon. Adele Elijah Owolabi, has urged residents and those transacting business within his domain to take seriously the proper disposal of refuse, just as he flags-off KACHAM corps.. Explaining that this was in view of the filthy environment and the attendant negative effect on commerce, the council boss said while kick starting the new initiative, Keep Apapa Clean and Healthy, A Must (KACHAM) Corps, was to forestall indiscriminate dumping of refuse evident within Apapa.. Adele cited the fact that the drive for the initiative was borne out of the huge economic loss that dirt and filth riddled environment may bring Apapa blessed by two seaports situated there.. While calling for the cooperation of the peoples of the community with government, Adele said he established the KACHAM CORPS to enforce the cleanliness culture, along with 25 units of Branded Waste Bins to be placed in different strategic points, as well as the Cleaner Apapa Squad ...
A large number of policy initiatives are being taken at the European level, across the United Kingdom and in London to improve air quality and reduce population exposure to harmful pollutants from traffic emissions. Trends in roadside increments of nitrogen oxides (NOX), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), particulate matter (PM), black carbon (CBLK) and carbon dioxide (CO2) were examined at 65 London monitoring sites for two periods of time: 2005-2009 and 2010-2014. Between 2005 and 2009 there was an overall increase in NO2 reflecting the growing evidence of real world emissions from diesel vehicles. ...

Perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) may have been released during the collapse of the World Trade Center (WTC) on 9/11. Evidence suggests PFAS can cross the placental barrier in humans and cause harm to the developing fetus; however, no studies have measured PFAS in mothers exposed to the WTC disaster during pregnancy. We measured PFAS in maternal plasma (n = 48) or cord blood (n = 231) from pregnant ...

Pollution is … unused raw material. By reducing the amount of pollution, … [3M can] save money both on pollution control and on raw materials the next time around. Its a win-win situation So said Dr Joe Ling, 3Ms former Staff Vice President, Environmental Engineering and Pollution Control back in 1975. He was arguably the first individual to articulate the concept of pollution prevention.. It seems common place to us today, but back in the early 1970s, Joes belief that pollution prevention was more environmentally effective, technically sound and - crucially - economical than conventional pollution controls was considered revolutionary. In 1976, Dr. Ling first presented his ideas at a conference sponsored by the United Nations. Shortly after, he was approached by the director of the United Nations Environmental Program to develop a booklet explaining these theories for distribution to UN member nations and countries such as the United Kingdom, France, Germany, and Sweden went on to adopt ...
Our first obligation at EPA is to fulfill the statutory responsibilities we have been given by Congress. That generally means developing environmental standards through regulation, and ensuring compliance through a system of permits inspections, and enforcement actions. I firmly believe that strong environmental requirements, if designed to encourage cost-effective compliance strategies from industry, can promote pollution prevention and improve the competitiveness of American industry.. We can take a number of actions to realize this potential. First, we must work within the law to design and implement our regulations to provide incentives for source reduction. That will mean better coordination of different regulations that affect the same industry to reduce transaction costs, minimize cross-media transfers of waste, and provide a clearer sense of our long-term goals for the regulated community.. EPAs Source Reduction Review Project (SRRP), which is exploring how best to encourage pollution ...
Each year EPA gives matching funds to state agencies, federally-recognized tribes and colleges and universities that are instrumentalities of a state to support P2 activities across all environmental media - air, water and land. The grants are dependent on congressional appropriation and the quality of proposals received.. This page provides summaries, which EPA issued in April 2013, on how states plan to spend the matching grants and/or cooperative agreements EPA awarded in fiscal year 2012 under the Pollution Prevention Grant Program. The summaries include the applicants name, the federal dollar amount (for the first year, in cases of multiple year grants) and a brief description of the project.. The summaries are intended to both inform the public and P2 practitioners on how EPA grant money is being spent and to facilitate information exchange among the states P2 programs to spread ideas.. In fiscal year 2012, EPA had approximately $4.1 million to fund P2 grant activities to help develop ...

Global Environmental Issues, second edition builds on the popularity of the first edition, viewing global environmental problems as complex issues with a network of causes, influenced by a range of actors with differing priorities. The book recognises that science underpins much of what happens in society and therefore it is important to be able to interpret the environmental and social consequences of scientific developments. In addition to discussing the main biophysical causes, the book illustrates how socio-economic and political factors determine why and how people use land, resources and technology, and how this in turn affects natural resource management. This edition includes new chapters on the politics of science, International environmental regulation and treaties, environmental issues in a globalised world and natural resource management.. Global Environmental Issues, second edition is essential reading for upper level undergraduates and Masters students within departments of ...
Based on the mechanism model of environmental pollution loss of pollutants, Logistic equation and related theory of environmental value, an economic loss estimation model of environmental pollution was established. The model can not only reflect the relationship between pollutant concentration, pollutant emissions, environmental resource value and economic value loss, but also use this model to quantitatively reflect the damage caused by environmental pollution to the value of environmental resources. The model is used to estimate the economic loss caused by industrial water pollution in a certain area. The comparison between the estimated amount and the results calculated by econometric method shows that the evaluation results are relatively consistent, but the former is slightly larger ...
Environmental issues in Pakistan include deforestation, air pollution, water pollution, noise pollution, climate change, pesticide misuse, soil erosion, natural disasters and desertification. These are serious environmental problems that Pakistan is facing, and they are getting worse as the countrys economy expands and the population grows. Unfortunately, not much is being done to tackle these issues, because the goals of economic growth and tackling terrorism within the country supersede the goals of environmental preservation. Although NGOs and government departments have taken initiatives to stop environmental degradation, Pakistans environmental issues still remain. The majority of Pakistans industrial sectors, for example fishing and agriculture, which count for more than one fourth of the output and two fifths of employment in Pakistan, are highly dependent on the countrys natural resources. Hence in order to sustain economic growth there is a high demand on already scarce natural ...
Real time measurement of process emissions is important for undertaking rational pollution prevention and risk reduction strategies. The selective measurement of gaseous species, usually at trace levels, in a complex background mixture is of particular concern because many toxic pollutants are present at parts per trillion (ppt) to parts per million (ppm) levels in process effluents. Consequently there is a growing need for the development of highly sensitive and selective techniques to continuously monitor the concentrations of a broad range of compounds. In this proposal we would like to exploit recent advances made in resonance enhanced multiphoton ionization (REMPI) and time of flight (TOF) mass spectrometry (MS) for the development of real time and ultrasensitive detection techniques to monitor a wide range of molecules in the gas phase. An important and challenging chemical reaction process where the REMPI-TOF/MS should have a major impact is in combustion. This is because combustion of ...

Using photographs from the ISS, scientist have measured worldwide light pollution, using light from buildings and streets, but also scattered light. The results confirm this glow is light scattered from streetlights and buildings and is responsible for brightening city night skies. European countries with higher public debt were also found to have higher relative energy consumption for street lighting, and cost of energy consumption for street lights is 6,300 million euros/year in the EU.
Last Sunday, people all over the Shenandoah valley turned out to their porches and yards to view the supermoon eclipse. The event was also broadcast by NASA in a livestream feed. Its heartening to see, especially in a day and age when people are more interested in the little screens at the end of their fingers than in the world around them.. Unfortunately, the supermoon lunar eclipse was a pale echo of what it could have been. The reason is light pollution - the artificial lights from buildings, streetlights and elsewhere that we see every night. This reflected light washes out the natural darkness of the sky, making it impossible to see all but the brightest stars. There are very few places in the U.S. that one can actually see the Milky Way clearly, and theres likely to be fewer as time goes on.. Most of this light is unnecessary - streetlights that direct some light upward, skyscrapers with full lighting at night, and overlapping floodlights are some examples. Not only is this costly, it ...

By the early 2000s, Peru faced serious environmental problems. Air pollution in urban areas was so severe that it caused thousands of premature deaths every year. In fact, air quality in Lima was worse than in other large Latin American cities, such as Mexico City or Sao Paulo. Other environmental challenges that damaged peoples health included air pollution inside homes caused by the use of wood for cooking; insufficient access to clean water, sanitation, and hygiene; and exposure to lead, a highly toxic chemical. Together, these environmental problems caused 12 million cases of illnesses annually, dramatically affecting young children, the elderly, and poor people who couldnt afford medical care. The World Bank estimated that these negative impacts had an economic cost equivalent to 2.8% of Perus Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in 2003. One of the main reasons the Peruvian government wasnt able to respond promptly to these serious environmental problems was the country didnt have governmental
There is a lack of environmental health data in Africa, which is undergoing rapid development. The SA-Swiss Bilateral Research Chair in Global Environmental Health therefore aims to conduct locally and globally relevant studies in this setting. Project 1 included a cohort study that investigated the effects of chemical and biological air pollution on childhood asthma in four informal settlements of the Western Cape, South Africa. Project 2 is a cohort study investigating the effects of pesticide pollution on childhood reproduction and neurodevelopment. Project 3 include two cross-sectional surveys on the effect of water pollution and hygiene on diarrhoea among residents of informal settlements in the Lotus River catchment area in the Western Cape. Project 4 aims to investigate the effect of climate change on health. In the panel study, short-term fungal spore exposure was found to significantly decrease lung function even beyond the day of exposure. In the air pollution cohort study, nitrogen ...

Greenhouse gases are gases that retain heat in the atmosphere. This created something called the greenhouse effect. It is normal function of our Earth. There are naturally occurring greenhouse emissions into the atmosphere like carbon dioxide. This happens through normal and natural processes and human activities. You might be surprised to find out that there are more greenhouse gases than all that carbon dioxide stuff youve been hearing about. There are some greenhouse gases that are only emitted by human activities such as fluorinated gases.. Greenhouse gases that release into the atmosphere due to human induced exploits include:. Carbon Dioxide (CO2): The most well known of the greenhouse gases, youve typically heard about carbon dioxide from a Greenpeace advocate, the weatherman, or on from some liberal news anchor. Whatever your thoughts are on climate change, science clearly tells us that carbon dioxide goes into our atmosphere from the process of burning fossil fuels. The main fossil ...
Environmental magnetic methods based on the study of variations in magnetic susceptibility and rock magnetic parameters have been successfully used over several decades to characterize and quantify the degree of pollution of air, water, vegetation and land systems. These prompted us to undertake joint magnetic and geochemical investigations of road-side urban soil materials to address the environmental pollution of Beni Mellal city that has been subjected to environmental stress, due to population overpressure and related urbanization.. In order to quantify the degree of environmental pollution using magnetic method, magnetic susceptibility of soil and sediment out-side and along 5 km of the national road N8 (formally named 20 aout) has been measured. All samples collected near roads have higher values of magnetic susceptibility and heavy metals (especially Pb) contents that those collected far from roads. These results show that both ferrimagnetic minerals and heavy metals come from the same ...
Human action in fulfillment of their daily activities, inadvertently have increased the number of inorganic materials in water and pollute water. For example, removal of the detergent into the water can adversely impact on aquatic organisms. Paddy soil fertilization with artificial fertilizers or farm, then went into the water will cause the growth of aquatic plants that are not controlled, called eutrophication or blooming. Some types of plants such as algae, water hyacinth spikes and will grow rapidly and cover the surface of the waters so that sunlight does not penetrate to the bottom waters. As a result, plants that are under the surface can not photosynthesize, so the levels of dissolved oxygen in water decreases ...

In this study, the influence of lead (II) ions on sunflower growth and biochemistry was investigated from various points of view. Sunflower plants were treated with 0, 10, 50, 100 and/or 500 µM Pb-EDTA for eight days. We observed alterations in growth in all experimental groups compared with non-treated control plants. Further we determined total content of proteins by a Bradford protein assay. By the eighth day of the experiment, total protein contents in all treated plants were much lower compared to control. Particularly noticeable was the loss of approx. 8 µg/mL or 15 µg/mL in shoots or roots of plants treated with 100 mM Pb-EDTA. We also focused our attention on the activity of alanine transaminase (ALT), aspartate transaminase (AST) and urease. Activity of the enzymes increased with increasing length of the treatment and applied concentration of lead (II) ions. This increase corresponds well with a higher metabolic activity of treated plants. Contents of cysteine, reduced glutathione (GSH),

An ecological cascade effect is a series of secondary extinctions that is triggered by the primary extinction of a key species in an ecosystem. Secondary extinctions are likely to occur when the threatened species are: dependent on a few specific food sources, mutualistic (dependent on the key species in some way), or forced to coexist with an invasive species that is introduced to the ecosystem. Species introductions to a foreign ecosystem can often devastate entire communities, and even entire ecosystems. These exotic species monopolize the ecosystem's resources, and since they have no natural predators to decrease their growth, they are able to increase indefinitely. Olsen et al.[1] showed that exotic species have caused lake and estuary ecosystems to go through cascade effects due to loss of algae, crayfish, mollusks, fish, amphibians, and birds. However, the principal cause of cascade effects is the loss of top predators as the key species. As a result of this loss, a dramatic increase ...
