Drinking Water Salinity and Raised Blood Pressure: Evidence from a Cohort Study in Coastal Bangladesh

Conclusions: DWS is an important source of daily sodium intake in salinity-affected areas and is a risk factor for hypertension. Considering the likely increasing trend in coastal salinity, prompt action is required. Because MAR showed variable effects, alternative technologies for providing reliable, safe, low-sodium fresh water should be developed alongside improvements in MAR and evaluated in “real-life” salinity-affected settings. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP659 Received: 01 February 2016 Revised: 14 June 2016 Accepted: 31 August 2016 Published: 30 May 2017 Address correspondence to Dr. Pauline Scheelbeek, Department of Population Health, London School of Hygiene &Tropical Medicine.

In this study, to satisfy these requirements, the equilibrium temperature and the dissociation heat of tetrabutylphosphonium acrylate (TBPAc) ionic semi-clathrate hydrate were studied. It was found that the highest equilibrium temperature was 14.4 °C at the mass fractions from 0.37 to 0.40. It was also found that the largest dissociation heat was (210.4 ± 5.3) kJ kg-1 at the mass fraction 0.39. These values indicate that TBPAc hydrate could be a new promising thermal-storage medium for the general or data-centre air-conditioning systems. The experimental results of this study also revealed an underlying tendency...

ConclusionThe association of antibiotic and surgical therapy seems to be more effective compared to each one alone. The lack of comparison studies and randomized controlled trials makes it difficult to give information about the efficacy of the different management therapies.
