Abstract Background The use of wireless telecommunication systems such as wireless fidelity (Wi-Fi)-enabled devices has steadily increased in recent years. There are persistent concerns that radiofrequency electromagnetic field (RF-EMF) exposure might affect health. Possible effects of RF-EMF exposure on human sleep were examined with regard to mobile phones and base stations, but not with regard to Wi-Fi exposure. Objectives The present double-blind, sham-controlled, randomized, fully counterba...

The environment in which children grow, play and learn has a profound effect on their health and well-being. Exposures to a polluted indoor environment do not result in the same outcomes for children as for adults because children may be exposed differently, children metabolize some chemicals differently than adults; and children have "windows of vulnerability" while they are growing and developing when their target organs may be more susceptible than the target organs of adults.

Abstract The antioxidant 2,6-di-tert-butyl-4-methylphenol (butylated hydroxytoluene, BHT) is used ubiquitously in food, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, fuels, plastics, rubbers and many other products. Therefore, exposure of the general population to this substance is likely. We analyzed the BHT metabolite 3,5-di-tert-butyl-4-hydroxybenzoic acid (“BHT acid”) in 24-h urine samples from the German Environmental Specimen Bank with the aim of gaining a better understanding of the internal burden of BHT ...

Abstract Antimicrobial resistance is a global health risk, and the presence of resistant bacteria in the environment may be an indicative of fecal pollution. The objective of this study has been to assess the antibiotic resistance of airborne coliforms near a highly impacted urban river that may contain high levels of fecal waste. The pilot study has been located within an Andean river basin, the Choqueyapu River basin, which flows through La Paz city in Bolivia. Bioaerosol samples have been col...

Abstract Background Despite the positive association between secondhand smoke (SHS) and cardiovascular diseases (CVD), no comprehensive assessment on the dose-response relationship between SHS and CVD has yet been reported. Therefore, a meta-analysis was conducted to update the binary association, and to elucidate the dose-response relationship of both self-reported and objectively measured SHS exposure with CVD. Methods PubMed and Embase databases were searched for articles published up to Nove...

Abstract Achievement of United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 6.1 centers on the availability of a safely managed drinking water source for all. However, meeting the criteria for this goal is challenging on island systems and elsewhere with limited freshwater supplies. We measured microbial and chemical water quality over three years on San Cristobal Island, Galapagos, an island with limited freshwater supply, necessitating use of cisterns or roof tanks to ensure water availability in hous...
