Vested interests, whose primary goal is to protect markets for products which frequently have hazardous potentials, are increasingly combined with distortion of science applied in legislation, policy-making, standard-setting and legal proceedings. The Collegium Ramazzini held a panel entitled “Corporate Influence Threatens the Public’s Health” on November 1, 2018 at the Annual Ramazzini Days in Carpi, Italy, which drew attention to these hazardous malfeasances. Strategies to meet the related ong...

Objectives To determine the test performance parameters for the retrievable range of high-molecular-weight (HMW) and low-molecular-weight (LMW) occupational allergens and to evaluate the impact of allergenic components and the implementation of measures for test validation. Methods A protocol with predefined objectives and inclusion criteria was the basis of an electronic literature search of MEDLINE and EMBASE (time period 1967–2016). The specific inhalation challenge and serial peak flow measu...

Background: Cases of intoxications to gas from container’s atmosphere have been described. For diagnosis, Fum Ex 2 questionnaire has been developed by the European Society for Environmental and Occupational Medicine. The aim of this study was to enhance knowledge on health effects of toxic substances in containers and to validate this questionnaire in medical follow-up and diagnosis. Materials and methods: In 2014, 125 French dockers answered the questionnaire in a face-to-face interview. Result...

An increasing number of reports describe among others respiratory symptoms in airline crew members correlated to cabin air incidents („fume event“, FE). So far, no consensus exists about the diagnostic approach. Methods: Symptom-related lung function diagnostics as well as blood and urine samples screened for organophosphates (OP) and/or various VOCs were performed. Results: Out of our nearly 300 symptomatic FE patients about 75% reported respiratory symptoms such as cough, shortness of breath a...

Magne Bratveit and Rune Djurhuus have removed themselves as authors from this article [1] as they did not approve the final version and they do not agree with the revisions made to the section “Occurrences of intoxications with chemicals used for pest control in transport containers and on bulk cargo ships” and Table 2, including relationships between claimed exposure and health effects and the statement on fatalities related to container opening.

The WHO has ranked environmental hazardous exposures in the living and working environment among the top risk factors for chronic disease mortality. Worldwide, about 40 million people die each year from noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) including cancer, diabetes, and chronic cardiovascular, neurological and lung diseases. The exposure to ambient pollution in the living and working environment is exacerbated by individual susceptibilities and lifestyle-driven factors to produce complex and complic...
