Serum Vitamin D and Risk of Breast Cancer within Five Years

Conclusions: In this cohort of women with elevated risk, high serum 25(OH)D levels and regular vitamin D supplement use were associated with lower rates of incident, postmenopausal breast cancer over 5 y of follow-up. These results may help to establish clinical benchmarks for 25(OH)D levels; in addition, they support the hypothesis that vitamin D supplementation is useful in breast cancer prevention. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP943 About This Article Received: 09 August 2016 Revised: 23 January 2017 Accepted: 06 February 2017 Published: 06 July 2017 Address correspondence to C.

SalesAbstractHistamine (HIS) is a major public health problem due to its toxic properties. High levels can cause a chronic toxicity as poisoning and can be used as a signal of food hygiene. Thus, a new electrochemical sensor for HIS detection in fish is presented herein, prepared by tailoring a molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) sensing material on a gold screen-printed electrode (Au-SPEs), in which the polymeric film was generated in-situ. This...

The catalyst Fe-sand was characterized by XRD, BET, SEM, TEM, FTIR, XRF and DRS methods. X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis showed that the Fe-sand catalyst mainly consists of Fe2O3 and SiO2 crystallites, and the Fe concentration of the prepared catalyst measured by AAS is 135.7 mg/g. BET results revealed that Fe-sand posse...
