Pesticide exposure and diabetes mellitus in a semi-urban Nepali population: a cross-sectional study
ConclusionsThe apparently lower odds of diabetes mellitus among pesticide-exposed persons in this population are probably due to residual confounding. Our results do not seem to support an association between pesticide exposure and diabetes mellitus in this low-exposed population dominated by subsistence farmers, although results should be interpreted with caution in light of the study limitations.

Evaluation of the effects of chronic occupational exposure to metallic mercury on the thyroid parenchyma and hormonal function
AbstractIntroductionExperiments in animals exposed to mercury (Hg) in different chemical states have shown thyroid parenchymal and hormone alterations. However, these experiments did not allow the establishment of dose –response curves or provide an understanding of whether these Hg effects on the thyroid parenchyma occur in humans.ObjectiveTo evaluate the association between chronic occupational exposure to metallic Hg and alterations in thyroid hormones and gland parenchyma 14  years after the last exposure.MethodsA cross-sectional study including 55 males exposed in the past to metallic Hg and 55 non-exposed ...

Exposure to bullying behaviours and support from co-workers and supervisors: a three-way interaction and the effect on health and well-being
ConclusionsThese results indicate that the negative effect of workplace bullying on health and well-being is weaker if victims perceive that they have co-worker support, but this protective effect seems to be conditional on the perceived level of supervisor support. In other words, lack of supportive leadership may block the beneficial effect of perceived co-worker support. (Source: International Archives of Occupational and Environmental Health)

Effects of occupational cobalt exposure on the heart in the production of cobalt and cobalt compounds: a 6-year follow-up
ConclusionsAlthough the previous results in 2000 suggested an association between cumulative exposure to cobalt and echocardiographic findings, the results of this new cross-sectional study with a tissue Doppler 6 years later did not confirm the association in the present cohort. If cobalt exposure affects heart muscle functions at this exposure level, the effects are smaller than those caused by physiological changes due to ageing, medication, and traditional cardiovascular risk factors, such as elevated blood pressure.

ConclusionsWe observed a significant association between coal mining and emphysema among black miners. Adverse health effects of coal mining are evidenced by more than twofold increase in emphysema among black coal miners compared to gold miners. This suggests that South African Coal miners are exposed to high dust concentrations or more damaging components compared to other commodities, resulting in elevated risk of emphysema.

Age, aging and physiological dysregulation in safety –critical work: a retrospective longitudinal study of helicopter emergency medical services pilots
ConclusionsAs hypothesized, progression of dysregulation over approximately 8  years is observable in a healthy occupational sample but it does not accelerate (i.e., does not increase with baseline age). Increases in dysregulation are counteracted by what appears to be a strong healthy worker survivor effect. The study shows that the development of physiological dysregulatio n in high-risk occupations differs from that in the general population and that physiological dysregulation indices may be helpful in reconciling safety concerns and fair treatment of aging workers in safety–critical jobs.

Need for recovery in relation to effort from work and health in four occupations
ConclusionsThree levels of NFR meant corresponding levels of work demands, work-demand compensatory strategies, and unfavorable health behaviors. An inversed proportion of resources related to the same levels of NFR. Low NFR meant no regular health effects which could guide limit values regarding salutary NFR. Important predictors of NFR were resources making a good quality work, recovery opportunities, and reversely effort from rumination when off work. Occupation-wise predictors could guide interventions. (Source: International Archives of Occupational and Environmental Health)

Cumulative values based on conservative estimates of past exposure, modeled from recently measured respirable silica, showed an association with restriction RVD on spirometry. Silica exposure was also significantly associated with increased parenchymal findings on chest x-ray using this approach. Conversely, these findings were absent when actual available historical data was used to estimate cumulative silica exposure. These differences hi...
