Bioterrorism alleging use of anthrax and interim guidelines for management--United States, 1998. (1/726)

From October 30 through December 23, 1998, CDC received reports of a series of bioterroristic threats of anthrax exposure. Letters alleged to contain anthrax were sent to health clinics on October 30, 1998, in Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee. During December 17-23 in California, a letter alleged to contain anthrax was sent to a private business, and three telephone threats of anthrax contamination of ventilation systems were made to private and public buildings. All threats were hoaxes and are under investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and local law enforcement officials. The public health implications of these threats were investigated to assist in developing national public health guidelines for responding to bioterrorism. This report summarizes the findings of these investigations and provides interim guidance for public health authorities on bioterrorism related to anthrax.  (+info)

The marginalization of hormesis. (2/726)

Despite the substantial development and publication of highly reproducible toxicological data, the concept of hormetic dose-response relationships was never integrated into the mainstream of toxicological thought. Review of the historical foundations of the interpretation of the bioassay and assessment of competitive theories of dose-response relationships lead to the conclusion that multiple factors contributed to the marginalization of hormesis during the middle and subsequent decades of the 20th Century. These factors include the following: (a) the close association of hormesis with homeopathy, which led to the hostility of modern medicine toward homeopathy, thereby creating a guilt-by-association framework, and the carryover influence of that hostility toward hormesis in the judgements of medically based pharmacologists/toxicologists; (b) the emphasis of high-dose effects linked with a lack of appreciation of the significance of the implications of low-dose stimulatory effects; (c) the lack of an evolution-based mechanism(s) to account for hormetic effects; and (d) lack of appropriate scientific advocates to counter aggressive and intellectually powerful critics of the hormetic perspective.  (+info)

Chemical hormesis: its historical foundations as a biological hypothesis. (3/726)

Despite the long history of hormesis-related experimental research, no systematic effort to describe its early history has been undertaken. The present paper attempts to reconstruct and assess the early history of such research and to evaluate how advances in related scientific fields affected the course of hormesis-related research. The purpose of this paper is not only to satisfy this gap in current knowledge but also to provide a foundation for the assessment of how the concept of hormetic dose-response relationships may have affected the nature of the bioassay, especially with respect to hazard assessment practices within a modern risk assessment framework.  (+info)

Migration patterns of children with cancer in Britain. (4/726)

OBJECTIVES: To investigate the early migration patterns of children who later developed cancer. To test a prior hypothesis that some cancers are initiated by early exposures to toxic atmospheric pollutants from point sources. DESIGN: Address changes in children dying from cancer are examined in relation to potentially hazardous sites of several different types. The relative proximities of birth addresses and death addresses to these sites, are compared. The approach is based upon the premise that a local exposure, effective only at an early age, must be preferentially linked with an early address. SETTING AND SUBJECTS: Records of 22,458 children dying from leukaemia or other cancer under the age of 16 years in Great Britain between 1953 and 1980: including 9224 who moved house between birth and death. The migration analysis was based upon birth and death addresses, converted first to postcodes and thence to map coordinates. The geographical locations of potentially toxic industrial sites were obtained through direct map searches and from commercial directories. RESULTS: Systematic asymmetries were found between measured distances from birth and death addresses to sources emitting volatile organic compounds, or using large scale combustion processes. The children had more often moved away from these hazards than towards them. Many of the sources had already been identified as hazardous using other methods. There was also a birth association with areas of dense habitation; possibly because of unidentified toxic sources contained within them. All forms of cancer were involved although some effluents were associated preferentially with specific types. CONCLUSIONS: The main findings of an earlier study, based upon a different and independent method, were confirmed. Proximities to several types of industrial source, around the time of birth, were followed by a raised risk of childhood cancer. Combustion products and volatile organic compounds were especially implicated. Within the 16 year limit of the study, the increased risk did not decay with advancing age. Low atmospheric concentrations of many carcinogenic substances suggest that the mother acts as a cumulative filter and passes them to the fetus across the placenta or in breast milk.  (+info)

Emergency planning and the acute toxic potency of inhaled ammonia. (5/726)

Ammonia is present in agriculture and commerce in many if not most communities. This report evaluates the toxic potency of ammonia, based on three types of data: anecdotal data, in some cases predating World War 1, reconstructions of contemporary industrial accidents, and animal bioassays. Standards and guidelines for human exposure have been driven largely by the anecdotal data, suggesting that ammonia at 5,000-10,000 parts per million, volume/volume (ppm-v), might be lethal within 5-10 min. However, contemporary accident reconstructions suggest that ammonia lethality requires higher concentrations. For example, 33,737 ppm-v was a 5-min zero-mortality value in a major ammonia release in 1973 in South Africa. Comparisons of secondary reports of ammonia lethality with original sources revealed discrepancies in contemporary sources, apparently resulting from failure to examine old documents or accurately translate foreign documents. The present investigation revealed that contemporary accident reconstructions yield ammonia lethality levels comparable to those in dozens of reports of animal bioassays, after adjustment of concentrations to human equivalent concentrations via U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) procedures. Ammonia levels potentially causing irreversible injury or impairing the ability of exposed people to escape from further exposure or from coincident perils similarly have been biased downwardly in contemporary sources. The EPA has identified ammonia as one of 366 extremely hazardous substances subject to community right-to-know provisions of the Superfund Act and emergency planning provisions of the Clean Air Act. The Clean Air Act defines emergency planning zones (EPZs) around industrial facilities exceeding a threshold quantity of ammonia on-site. This study suggests that EPZ areas around ammonia facilities can be reduced, thereby also reducing emergency planning costs, which will vary roughly with the EPZ radius squared.  (+info)

Health and safety practices among farmers and other workers: a needs assessment. (6/726)

The development of appropriate health and safety interventions for farmers and agri-workers is important world-wide but data on present practices and attitudes to change are lacking. A representative quota sample (n = 1,938) of the Irish population was surveyed on lifestyle practices and workplace risk assessment and control measures, in relation to chemical exposure, manual handling and machinery. Focus group discussions were conducted also with 47 representatives of national farming organizations. As compared with the general workforce, farmers had a significantly (p < 0.01) lower level of assessment of risk hazards associated with manual handling and machinery. Both farmers and employees in workplaces with less than 20 employees reported a significantly lower level of safety training. Male farmers had a particularly negative health profile with only 18% reporting regular dental checks, 26% practising skin protection and 29% taking regular exercise. Discussions indicated that barriers to change included low perceived susceptibility, lack of time and resources. Mental health issues were particularly highlighted. We conclude farmers differ significantly in many instances from the rest of the workforce in regard to occupational health and safety issues and specific interventions in key areas are required for the agri-sector.  (+info)

Hazards of chemical weapons release during war: new perspectives. (7/726)

The two major threat classes of chemical weapons are mustard gas and the nerve agents, and this has not changed in over 50 years. Both types are commonly called gases, but they are actually liquids that are not remarkably volatile. These agents were designed specifically to harm people by any route of exposure and to be effective at low doses. Mustard gas was used in World War I, and the nerve agents were developed shortly before, during, and after World War II. Our perception of the potency of chemical weapons has changed, as well as our concern over potential effects of prolonged exposures to low doses and potential target populations that include women and children. Many of the toxicologic studies and human toxicity estimates for both mustard and nerve agents were designed for the purpose of quickly developing maximal casualties in the least sensitive male soldier. The "toxicity" of the chemical weapons has not changed, but our perception of "toxicity" has.  (+info)

Mass psychogenic illness attributed to toxic exposure at a high school. (8/726)

BACKGROUND AND METHODS: Mass psychogenic illness may be difficult to differentiate from illness caused by bioterrorism, rapidly spreading infection, or toxic substances. We investigated symptoms attributed to exposure to toxic gas at a high school in Tennessee. In November 1998, a teacher noticed a 'gasoline-like' smell in her classroom, and soon thereafter she had a headache, nausea, shortness of breath, and dizziness. The school was evacuated, and 80 students and 19 staff members went to the emergency room at the local hospital; 38 persons were hospitalized overnight. Five days later, after the school had reopened, another 71 persons went to the emergency room. An extensive investigation was performed by several government agencies. RESULTS: We were unable to find a medical or environmental explanation for the reported illnesses. The persons who reported symptoms on the first day came from 36 classrooms scattered throughout the school. The most frequent symptoms (in this group and the group of people who reported symptoms five days later) were headache, dizziness, nausea, and drowsiness. Blood and urine specimens showed no evidence of carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds, pesticides, polychlorinated biphenyls, paraquat, or mercury. There was no evidence of toxic compounds in the environment. A questionnaire administered a month later showed that the reported symptoms were significantly associated with female sex, seeing another ill person, knowing that a classmate was ill, and reporting an unusual odor at the school. CONCLUSIONS: The illness attributed to toxic exposure had features of mass psychogenic illness - notably, widespread subjective symptoms thought to be associated with environmental exposure to a toxic substance in the absence of objective evidence of an environmental cause. Alleviation of the anxiety surrounding an episode of mass psychogenic illness requires prompt recognition and a detailed investigation.  (+info)

The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) is an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services charged under the Superfund Act to assess the presence and nature of health hazards at specific Superfund sites and to help prevent or reduce further exposure and the illnesses that result from such exposures.
Two years ago, we began research on the global use, release and production of hazardous chemicals. This internal research was part of a wider effort to help us reassess our Detox strategy. Audience research, corporate and policy intelligence, among other things, helped us decide which industrial sectors and chemicals to focus on. We asked: where in the supply chain of sector X are hazardous chemicals used and/or released? What are the current trends for this particular group of hazardous chemicals? Can we identify key companies responsible?. Mapping chemicals globally? It is probably easier to count stars! There are many hazardous chemicals that we have tackled in past and current campaigns like Detox My Fashion or Detox Outdoor, and so many we havent identified yet. There are new toxic scandals every day, lack of regulation, lack of transparency, so much stuff being produced. There are the countless stories of people and communities affected by toxic pollution..

The QP guidance note on section 32 provides further information.. The importance of section 32 in policy and plan development cannot be overstated. In the context of hazardous substances one of the most important section 32 analysis considerations is whether any RMA controls are required at all. In many areas around New Zealand, HSNO may control hazardous substances sufficiently and no additional rules are warranted.. If a council considers that RMA plan controls are required, then such rules should specifically address those matters where HSNO is not sufficient. In most cases these will be to address location-specific factors.. Section 142 of the HNSO Act provides that RMA instruments can only include more stringent requirements than HSNO when they are considered necessary for the purposes of the RMA. When the HSNO requirements are sufficient to meet the purposes of the RMA that test will not be met.. Generally territorial authorities manage land uses associated with hazardous substances ...

This is consistent with our previous studies of incidents with hazardous materials responded to by the same six Massachusetts regional teams from 1990 to 1996.15 16In analyses of reports of incidents for the first 6 years of work with hazardous materials, hazardous materials team members experienced no notable chemical exposures. Minor musculoskeletal injuries were reported in a single incident. This is also consistent with findings among hazardous waste workers that few notable exposures occur because when the potential for exposure is greatest the workers are usually equipped with the highest levels of personal protective equipment.7 To study the possible subclinical health effects of hazardous materials firefighting, we studied liver and renal function tests and ...
Chrysotile is the most prevalent form of asbestos in use in the modern world, and it joins two pesticides - endosulfan and tributyl tin compounds - that will be examined to determine if their toxicities warrant them all places on the United Nations (UN) watch list of hazardous materials.

The worlds chemical production has increased more than 50-fold since the 1950s and several studies have shown that hazardous chemical exposure contributes substantially to diseases and affects human and environmental health in a profound way.. Most of these studies have, however, only dealt with single substances. In reality we are exposed to complex mixtures of man-made chemicals every day, and how such chemical pressures affect us is poorly understood.. While the European Union have certain systems in place for limiting adverse effects from single hazardous substances the challenge remains to reduce the risks from the mixtures and the total exposure of hazardous chemicals in our lives. Currently, in EU legislation, there is no mechanism for a systematic assessment of mixture effects taking into account different routes of exposure and different product types.. Voices have been raised to address this problem on a legislative level before, but now the wheels are set in motion with the Swedish ...

Manhattan, Kansas 66502. Dear Mr. Dykes:. This is in response to your November 29, 1993 letter in which you referred to the material safety data sheet (MSDS) for pure ammonia and found what you believe is a discrepancy in the Process Safety Management (PSM) of Highly Hazardous Chemicals (HHCs), 29 CFR 1910.119, standard. Specifically, you questioned whether anhydrous ammonia (NH(3)) should be listed in Appendix A of the PSM when the MSDS on NH(3) does not identify it as a toxic, reactive, flammable or explosive chemical.. In support of your belief you stated in your letter that a threshold quantity (TQ) of 10,000 pounds (4535.9 kg) of NH(3) appears to be a purely arbitrary amount without any basis for selection. This statement was made with reference to only six other Appendix A listed HHCs which have a TQ of 10,000 pounds. Also, you stated your opinion that the nature of ammonia used in a refrigeration system does not meet the criteria for a Process Hazard Analysis (PHA) when all that ...
Objective: Combine the MSHA and OSHA versions of the HazCom Helper into one easy-to-use software tool. Background: MSHA Rule 30 CFR Part 47 and OSHA Rule 29 CFR 1910.1200 (also known as the HazCom rules) require all companies to develop a written program to track hazardous chemicals at their sites. More specifically, the rule requires that companies list all chemicals and determine which are hazardous; develop a written Hazard Communication Program; label all containers used to store hazardous chemicals; obtain or develop Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) for all chemicals stored or produced; provide workers with training in working around hazardous chemicals; and make information about hazardous chemicals available to all workers. Approach: NIOSH personnel developed the HazComWriter to replace the HazCom Helper-MSHA version (NIOSH Publication 2003-118) and the HazCom Helper-OSHA version (NIOSH Publication 2005-135). The HazComWriter is designed to help companies write their required HazCom ...
GHS/HazCom:. March 26, 2012, the Federal Register published OSHAs final Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). With this rule OSHA has modified its Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) to be consistent with to the United Nations System. GHS Requirements. OSHA estimates that 880,000 hazardous chemicals are currently used in the U.S., and over 40 million employees are now potentially exposed to hazardous chemicals in over 5 million workplaces. Approximately 75,000 firms create hazardous chemicals (i.e., products, substances, or mixtures) for which new labels and safety data sheets (formerly material safety data sheets) will be required.. OSHA explains that implementation of the GHS will improve HCS by changing the performance requirements for labels to the GHS-specific requirements that labels include four standardized elements: a signal word; hazard statement(s); pictogram(s); and precautionary statement(s). The appropriate label elements for a chemical ...

Abstract: Silent electrical discharge plasma reactors can decompose gas-phase pollutants by free-radical attack or electron-induced fragmentation. The radicals or electrons are produced by the large average volume nonthermal plasmas generated in the reactor. In the past decade, the barrier configuration has attracted attention for destroying toxic chemical agents for military, removing harmful greenhouse gases, and treating other environmentally-hazardous chemical compounds. At the Los Alamos National Laboratory, we have been studying the silent discharge plasma (SDP) for processing gaseous-based hazardous chemicals for approximately five years. The key objective is to convert hazardous or toxic chemicals into non-hazardous compounds or into materials which are more easily managed. The main applications have been for treating off- gases from thermal treatment units, and for abating hazardous air pollutant emissions. In this paper we will summarize the basic principles of SDP processing, discuss ...

On March 29, 2017, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a statement refusing to ban chlorpyrifos used in agriculture. For decades, corn, wheat, apples and citrus have been sprayed with chlorpyrifos, shown to cause permanent brain and nerve damage in children. The EPA even admits this, but under chemical industry pressure still refuses to remove the product.. Environmental groups have repeatedly pushed the EPA to ban the organophosphate pesticide chlorpyrifos, known to harm health, water and wildlife. Following the EPAs March refusal to ban this hazardous chemical, on April 5, 2017 the environmental group Earthjustice, representing Pesticide Action Network North America (PANNA) and the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), asked the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit to direct the EPA to act within 30 days to ban all uses of chlorpyrifos, based on the agencys repeated findings that the pesticide is unsafe..
