Self-reported health impacts of caregiving by age and income among participants of the Canadian 2012 General Social Survey.

CONCLUSION: Providing care impacts health behaviours and mental health regardless of age and income. However, our findings suggest that older caregivers (who are most often women)-who provide the most hours of care and on reduced incomes relative to younger caregivers-appear less impacted in terms of health behaviours, perhaps as a result of fewer competing demands relative to younger caregivers. Taken together, these findings suggest that support systems must consider caregiver impacts that vary in complex ways across age, sex, and income. PMID: 31091060 [PubMed - in process]

NerínAbstractThe influence of the growth of Aspergillus flavus and Escherichia coli on the concentration of the main compounds released by essential oils of cinnamon, clove and oregano has been studied. A diffusion vapour test and a subsequent analysis of three different areas of the plate were carried out. The results showed that in absence of microorganisms a gradient of concentration from the centre towards the periphery of the plate was observed for eugenol, carvacrol and cinnamaldehyde but not for thymol or linalool...

This study examines the extent to which data linkages between Indian Health Service, tribal data, and cancer registries affect cancer incidence rates among American Indians/Alaska Natives (AI/ANs) in Michigan. The incidence of tobacco- and alcohol-associated cancers for 1995-2012 was analyzed to compare rates of the Upper Peninsula (UP) and Lower Peninsula (LP) in Michigan and among AI/ANs and non-Hispanic Whites (NHWs). Complete linkage resulted in 1,352 additional AI/AN cases; 141 cases were linked via IHS records alone, while 373 were linked via tribal records alone; 838 were linked through both IHS and tribal records. ...

Abstract The prevalence of tobacco smoking among people with HIV (PWH) ranges from 40% to 70%. Additionally, tobacco smoking is higher among low-income individuals, yet few studies have examined tobacco smoking in low socioeconomic status PWH. Using data from a cohort of PWH receiving care in an urban HIV clinic, we characterized factors associated with current and former smoking and with initiation/re-initiation and cessation of tobacco use. Among a study sample of 1,607 PWH, the prevalence of current smoking was 46.6% among men and 46.0% among women. Current smoking in men and women was associated with Medicaid ...

Multifunctional composite materials have been considered as a viable solution to this problem. Here, a new double network (DN) hydrogel was constructed by physical cross-linking of medical grade poly (vinyl alcohol) (PVA) and chitosan in KOH/urea disso...

Hence, the rapid and simple detection of S has become an important issue. In this work, we report an effective approach for visible determination of S. The color of the detection reagent, which was readily prepared by mixing N, N-Dimethylformamide and hydrazine hydrate in a certain ratio, changes from colorless to blue and gradually...

A series of chitosan and polyvinyl alcohol (Cs/PVA) blend films doped with various concentrations of Zinc oxide nanoparticles (ZnO NPs) were prepared by solution casting method. These samples were characterized by various analytical techniques. XRD patterns of the prepared samples showed increasing in amorphousity of the polymer blend with incre...

In this study was developed polymeric films based on poly (vinyl alcohol) (PVA) incorporated with 30, 50 and 70 % of solid lipid nanoparticles entrapped α-tocopherol. PVA films were produced by the casting technique and characterized by their physicochemical, morphological, thermal and antioxidant characteristics. PVA films with nanoparticles demonstrated higher hydrophilic compared to the control film. Thermal analysis of the films showed that nanoparticles incorporation has changed the structure, decreasing the crystallinity. Moreover, films with solid lipid nanoparticles entrapped α-tocopherol demonstrated a...
