Mercury and mink. I. The use of mercury contaminated fish as a food for ranch mink. (1/2329)

Adult female and juvenile ranch mink were fed rations containing 50 and 75% of fish containing 0.44 ppm total mercury over a 145 day period. There was no clinical or pathological evidence of intoxication in these animals and mercury concentrations in tissue appeared to be at a level below that associated with toxicity.  (+info)

Natural occurrence of the C series of fumonisins in moldy corn. (2/2329)

We analyzed 44 moldy corn samples for the B and C series of fumonisins by high-performance liquid chromatography. Of the 44 samples, 32 (73%) were contaminated with both the B and C series of fumonisins and 6 were contaminated with only the B series of fumonisins. The incidence of fumonisin C1 in moldy corn was 71%; the incidence was 11% for fumonisin C3 and 43% for fumonisin C4. Their mean levels ranged from 500 to 1,900 ng/g. This is the first report on the natural occurrence of the C series of fumonisins and fumonisin B4 in moldy corn.  (+info)

Antimicrobial drug use and related management practices among Ontario swine producers. (3/2329)

A mail survey of swine producers in Ontario was undertaken during 1991 to describe the types, frequency, and motives for antimicrobial use. Two hundred operations that marketed fewer than 350 hogs per year, and 800 that marketed more than 350 per year were sent questionnaires, 63% of which were completed and returned. Most operations (86%) added antimicrobials to starter (weanling pig) rations, while fewer (29%) added these drugs to finisher pig rations. The most commonly used antimicrobials were tylosin, carbadox, and furazolidone in weanling pigs, and tylosin, lincomycin, and tetracycline in finishers. Water medication of grower-finisher pigs was practised on 25% of farms; 80% of farms had injected at least some grower-finisher pigs with antimicrobials in the 12 mo preceding the survey. Approximately 20% of operations that added antimicrobials to finisher rations did so for growth promotion purposes only, while others used them for disease treatment, prevention, control, or a combination of reasons. Among those not using antimicrobials in finisher rations, 83% did not believe they were necessary and 37% were concerned about the potential for residues in marketed hogs.  (+info)

Serum levels of ochratoxin A in healthy adults in Tuscany: correlation with individual characteristics and between repeat measurements. (5/2329)

Ochratoxin A (OTA), a mycotoxin widely contaminating staple foods and beverages, has been classified as a "possible human carcinogen (Group 2B)" by the IARC. Serum levels of OTA were measured in a group of 138 healthy adults (age, 35-65 years) living in the area surrounding Florence (Tuscany, central Italy) and detected in all but four samples (97%). After the exclusion of one subject with a peak value of 57.2 ng/ml, OTA levels ranged between 0.12 and 2.84 ng/ml, with mean and median values of 0.56 and 0.48 ng/ml, respectively. OTA levels were significantly higher in men than in women (0.64 versus 0.50) and correlated positively with height. A strong association was found with the season in which blood samples were obtained, with summer values higher than autumn values. On the other hand, OTA levels tended to be negatively associated with blood pressure, either systolic or diastolic; no association was evident with age, weight, body mass index, and smoking history. The associations with height and season persisted in a multivariate regression analysis. A subgroup of subjects provided a repeat blood sample approximately 1 year later. The Spearman correlation coefficient between 68 pairs of original and repeat measurements was practically null (r = 0.05). Only two subjects (2.9%) had OTA levels of >1 ng/ml on both occasions. These results suggest that OTA contamination is widespread in foods consumed by this population, in agreement with previous reports from Italy and other countries. A strong seasonal variation, which possibly differs from year to year, was observed. OTA serum levels are a short-term biomarker with a high within-subject variability; therefore they have limited use at the individual level but can be used to characterize populations or subgroups of subjects. Additional analyses are needed to explore the dietary determinants of OTA levels in this population.  (+info)

Salinomycin-induced polyneuropathy in cats: morphologic and epidemiologic data. (6/2329)

In April 1996, an outbreak of toxic polyneuropathy in cats occurred in the Netherlands. All cats had been fed one of two brands of dry cat food from one manufacturer. Chemical analyses of these foods, stomach contents, and liver and kidney of affected cats revealed contamination with the ionophor salinomycin. Epidemiologic and clinical data were collected from 823 cats, or about 1% of the cats at risk. In 21 affected cats, postmortem examination was performed. The affected cats had acute onset of lameness and paralysis of the hindlimbs followed by the forelimbs. Clinical and pathologic examination indicated a distal polyneuropathy involving both the sensory and motor nerves.  (+info)

Determination of tin, vanadium, iron, and molybdenum in various matrices by atomic absorption spectrometry using a simultaneous liquid-liquid extraction procedure. (7/2329)

An atomic-absorption spectrometric method is described for the determination of tin, vanadium, iron, and molybdenum in two certified reference materials, food samples, and petroleum crude. After treatment with acids, these elements are separated from matrix elements by simultaneous solvent extraction of 5,5'-methylenedisalicylohydroxamic acid complexes from HCl/NaClO4 solution into an isobutyl methyl ketone/tributyl phosphate solution. The detection limits range from 0.018 to 0.19 microg/mL (n = 3), and the relative standard deviations do not exceed 2.0% at levels of 0.5, 0.6, 2.0, and 7.0 microg/mL of Fe, Mo, V, and Sn, respectively. The method is selective and suffers only from interference by Zr(IV), Ti(IV), Th(IV), W(VI), PO4(3-), and F-.  (+info)

Occurrence of stereoisomers of 1-(2'-pyrrolidinethione-3'-yl)- 1,2,3,4-tetrahydro-beta-carboline-3-carboxylic acid in fermented radish roots and their different mutagenic properties. (8/2329)

Stereoisomers of the tetrahydro-beta-carboline derivative, 1-(2-pyrrolidinethione)-3-yl)-1,2,3,4-tetrahydro-beta-carboline- 3-carboxylic acid (PTCC), were formed from L-tryptophan with 4-methylthio-3-butenyl isothiocyanate, and their mutagenic properties and contents in different types of the radish products were studied. The isomers were identified as (1S*, 3S*, 3R*)- and (1R*, 3S*, 3R*)-PTCCs; the former was found as the major compound but had no mutagenic activity, while the latter was mutagenic toward Salmonella typhimurium TA 98 in the presence of a rat microsomal fraction. Both (1S*, 3S*, 3R*)- and (1R*, 3S*, 3R*)-PTCC were detected in a ratio of about 4:1 in a product fermented for 8 months, but only a trace was apparent in products manufactured within a few weeks.  (+info)

Protection from Food Contamination. Animals must be protected from mycotoxins, which are contaminants that form from mould development. Although mycotoxins and derivatives can be used in human medicine, they also have the potential to cause disease and death in humans and other animals. The term mycotoxin was coined following a London turkey disease linked to contaminated food in 1962. Over the next decade scientists learned a wealth of information about mycotoxins, which are made by fungi. Not all toxins produced by fungi, however, are considered mycotoxins. The difference between a mycotoxin and a mushroom poison, for example, relates to the size of the producing fungus. Most exposure to mycotoxins occurs in regions of the globe where malnutrition is common due to lack of regulations and poor food handling methods. Even so, the problem persists all over the world due to food contamination. The symptoms of exposure to mycotoxins can range from fatigue to blurred vision to chronic pain. ...
Figure 1. Overall breast cancer according to tertiles of estimated dietary cadmium exposure and whole grain and vegetable consumption jointly, Swedish Mammography Cohort, 1987-2008. Multivariable adjusted RRs (with 95% CIs) of overall breast cancer according to tertiles of dietary cadmium exposure (,14, 14-16, ≥16 μg/d) and whole grain and vegetable consumption (,187, 187-287, ≥287 g/d). Adjustments were made for attained age in years, height, BMI, education, use of oral contraceptives and postmenopausal hormones, age at menarche and menopause, parity, age at first birth, alcohol consumption, glycemic load, and total energy intake. In the lowest tertile of whole grain and vegetable intake, the daily consumption corresponded to, on average, 1.5 servings of whole grain and 1 serving of vegetables, whereas the corresponding consumption in the highest tertile was 3.5 servings of whole grain and 2.5 servings of vegetables. Pinteraction = 0.73.. ...
Technical developments that increase productivity and reduce costs mean that the long-term trend in real agricultural commodity prices on international markets is gradually downwards but that trend is dominated by significant short-term variability. Many developing countries, and especially the least developed countries, continue to depend on just a few agricultural commodities for the bulk of their export earnings. For them, commodity price variability has a strong impact on incomes, employment and government revenues, compromising macroeconomic planning and development efforts more generally. However, developing countries are also as a group increasingly reliant on food imports. The least developed countries are already net food importers. In these circumstances, falling international food prices are obviously beneficial but increasing reliance on imported food also means greater exposure to the variability in international food prices and hence food import bills. Developing countries need to contend

In the end, the effectiveness of a Geiger counter in detecting contaminated food and drink, in my opinion, comes down to a matter of degree. Heavily contaminated food is potentially detectable by many Geiger Counters of reasonable sensitivity. Weakly radioactive food might be detectable by some pancake GM tube models in combination with a timed count process. But there could theoretically be a minimum amount of radiation particles missed by any Geiger counter. So anyone using a Geiger counter for this purpose needs to take responsibility for that decision, versus other alternatives.. As a matter of interest, I have scanned everything from milk to soy sauce to sake, and the only radioactive item I have found so far is a batch of captured Arizona rainwater. Specifically, I detected 6 CPM (Counts per Minute) of radiation from the sample, using the Digilert 100 Digital Geiger counter, a standard-tubed (not pancake) model, so that instrument is still pretty sensitive to have achieved that feat.

It should be noted that exchange-traded products offering exposure to agricultural commodities dont actually buy and store the underlying commodities, as such a strategy would be impractical and prohibitively expensive. Rather, most of the ETFs in the Agricultural Commodities ETFdb Category employ a futures-based strategy to achieve their investment objectives.. While returns to a futures-based strategy generally exhibit a strong correlation to movements in spot prices, the relationship is often far from perfect. In order to avoid taking physical possession of the underlying commodities, these funds (or the related indexes) generally roll their holdings each month, selling any contracts that are approaching expiration and using the proceeds to buy longer-dated contracts. When the prices of these contracts vary (i.e., markets are either in contango or backwardation), the slope of the futures curve can have a meaningful impact on returns.

The ubiquitous food contaminant cadmium has features of an estrogen mimetic that may promote the development of estrogen-dependent malignancies, such as breast cancer. However, no prospective studies of cadmium exposure and breast cancer risk have been reported. , We examined the association between dietary cadmium exposure (at baseline, 1987) and the risk of overall and estrogen receptor (ER)-defined (ER+ or ER-) breast cancer within a population-based prospective cohort of 55,987 postmenopausal women. During an average of 12.2 years of follow-up, 2,112 incident cases of invasive breast cancer were ascertained (1,626 ER+ and 290 ER-). After adjusting for confounders, including consumption of whole grains and vegetables (which account for 40% of the dietary exposure, but also contain putative anticarcinogenic phytochemicals), dietary cadmium intake was positively associated with overall breast cancer tumors, comparing the highest tertile with the lowest [rate ratio (RR), 1.21; 95% confidence ...

If someone reliant on their safe foods can no longer access them, their eating disorder may just tell them to go without food altogether. It is important to note that it is not so easy for those in recovery to try new foods or find alternatives. We are susceptible to our old coping mechanisms in times of crisis to alleviate the anxieties that make us feel out of control.. In the face of missing safe foods, the key is collaboration. As I mentioned, when someone living with an eating disorder is struggling to find their safe foods, it can negatively impact their mental health and well-being. This is where the role of the carer comes in - someone who can take a degree of responsibility in ones recovery can help. With help, eating disorders have less opportunity to take control. For the most successful relationship for recovery, people living with an eating disorder should be actively involved throughout.. To those living with an eating disorder and on their journey to recovery, if are struggling ...

Professor Ben Hatton of the University of Torontos Department of Materials Science & Engineering, Dr. Dalal Asker and Dr. Tarek Awad research cheaper, safer and more effective ways to prevent bacteria thriving inside these machines. This minimizes the risk of cross contamination, which can lead to food-borne disease. Their team have proposed a simple new solution: trapping a thin layer of cooking oil at the metal surface to fill in microscopic scrapes, cracks and fissures and create a barrier to bacterial attachment.. They found that this solution resulted in a 1,000x reduction in bacterial levels inside the industrial machines tested. Their work is recently published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces.. Coating a stainless steel surface with an everyday cooking oil has proven remarkably effective in repelling bacteria, says Hatton who collaborated on the project with AGRI-NEO, an Ontario seed processing company looking for a solution to a common problem in its industry. The ...

New Delhi, October 29, 2017 : As pollution levels deteriorate in the National Capital Region, health experts have warned that continuous exposure to polluted air has the potential to cause a stroke among adults..

on 11/06/2019: Kamagra is one of the most commonly used medicines for treating erectile dysfunction. The drug works by relaxing the smooth muscles and dilating the blood vessels, increasing the flow of blood to the male organ, allowing a man to achieve an erection. The product has been designed to cause an erection that is as natural as possible. By enabling more blood to flow in and less to flow out of the penile area, the vessels of the male organ will hold more blood, which results in a longer-lasting erection. Your erection can for up to 4 hours depending on your level of arousal.. One of the best advantages of cheap Kamagra Tablets UK is that the drug is rapidly absorbed and starts to work within 30 to 60 minutes after consumption. While the Kamagra pill is a potent alternative to Viagra, it will only result in an erection if you are sexually stimulated.

When people say The Raw Food Diet, what do you think of? Green salads? A vegetable platter with ranch dressing? This is what I thought of the raw food diet before I did an internship with the Hawaii Naturopathic Retreat Center. As it turns out, raw food can be anything you love: warm soup, pizza or pad thai. It can also be lemon meringue pie, coconut ice cream and brownies. The raw food diet is about eating fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs, nuts, seeds and oils in delicious and creative ways. It is based on the principle that at temperatures greater than 117 degrees Fahrenheit, enzymes denature, nutrients are lost and toxic chemicals are produced. By keeping the enzymatic and nutritional content of food intact, we are receiving more nutrition to support good health while avoiding the disease producing compounds of cooked food. But what about all the good things cooked food has to offer, like warmth, texture, and taste? Raw food repertoire includes warm food like soups, curries, and pasta while ...
