Efficacy of ultrasound treatment in the and removal of pesticide residues from fresh vegetables: A review

Publication date: Available online 28 January 2020Source: Trends in Food Science &TechnologyAuthor(s): S.M. Roknul Azam, Haile Ma, Baoguo Xu, Shoma Devi, Md Abu Bakar Siddique, Sarah L. Stanley, Bhesh Bhandari, Junsong ZhuAbstractBackgroundPesticide residues (PR) present in food are potentially toxic components to humans and can be the cause of severe health problems, depending on the means and amounts of individual exposure. Among the different routes of pesticide exposure, the most likely exposure is through the direct consumption of fresh foods.Scope and approachTo remove PR from fresh agricultural products and improve food safety for consumers, various pesticide removal methods have been studied in recent decades. Several cleaning techniques such as usage of surfactants, ozone (O3), ionic solvent, and chlorine treatment have been applied to reduce the presence of pesticides. However, none of these methods have been reported as being successful in removing PR without any physical or chemical side effects to the food itself. Therefore, there is a crucial need for investigation of more effective, sustainable, and environment-friendly pest and pesticide removal practices.Key findings and conclusionsUltrasound-assisted cleaning (UAC) is considered to be an environment-friendly and effective pesticide eliminating process which is unique in its ability to remove the contaminants compared to conventional methods. It is also a time and energy-saving method of cleaning. This re...

This study evaluated 185 consecutive HF patients and underwent assessment including RFD, grip power (GP), knee extension strength (KES), skeletal muscle index (SMI), nutrition status, cardiopulmonary exercise testing, and New York Heart Association (NYHA) functional class. RFD was related with NYHA class and significantly correlated with GP, KES, SMI, body mass index, pre-albumin level, geriatric nutritional risk index, and peak VO2 (r = 0.631, 0.676, 0.510, 0.568, 0.380, 0.539, 0.527, respectively;p

In late March, Leah Coplon, the program director at Maine Family Planning, watched as a young mother parked her car in front of the building. Carrying her baby, the mother was greeted by staff in the foyer and handed a brown paper bag that looked like a lunch sack. Then she loaded the bag and the baby into her car and drove away. Now she could end her pregnancy. Less than two weeks earlier, on March 12, Maine had recorded its first case of COVID-19. Coplon knew this would make it harder for people to seek abortion services. Already elsewhere in the country, states were discussing shelter in place orders and medical suppli...

AbstractObjectiveTo evaluate the efficacy of multiparametric magnetic resonance/transrectal ultrasound fusion (MRI/TRUS fusion) biopsy versus systematic biopsy and its association with PI-RADS v2 categories in patients with suspected prostate cancer.Materials and methods122 patients undergoing both MRI/TRUS fusion and systematic biopsy, with suspicion of prostate cancer, with suspicious findings on MRI based on PI-RADS v2, were included between April 2016 and March 2017. Comparison of tumor detection rates using each technique and combined techniques was performed for all lesions as well as those that are traditionally dif...

Authors: Chen T, Gilfix B, Rivera JA, Sadeghi N, Richardson K, Hier MP, Forest VI, Fishman D, Caglar D, Pusztaszeri M, Mitmaker EJ, Payne RJ Abstract Though the current gold standard for diagnosing thyroid nodule malignancy is ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration (USFNA) cytology, about 20-25% of cytological evaluations are considered indeterminate for malignancy. This limitation has led to the emergence of next-generation sequencing panels, e.g. ThyroSeq v3 (TSv3), which recognize highly-diagnostic genetic mutations of common thyroid carcinomas in FNA samples and classifies them as test-negative or test-positi...
