Declining semen quality and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs): Review of the literature to support the derivation of a reference dose for a mixture risk assessment
Int J Hyg Environ Health. 2022 Mar 22;242:113953. doi: 10.1016/j.ijheh.2022.113953. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTTo support a mixture risk assessment for chemicals that interfere with male reproductive health, we reviewed the literature to identify studies of polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) and poor semen quality. Several epidemiological studies have shown associations of PBDE exposures with declining semen quality, non-descending testes and penile malformations. In rodent studies, poor semen quality, changes in testosterone levels and reproductive tissues have been observed. In vitro studies with reporter gene con...

Pollen allergy: Developing multi-sectorial strategies for its prevention and control in lower and middle-income countries
Int J Hyg Environ Health. 2022 Mar 22;242:113951. doi: 10.1016/j.ijheh.2022.113951. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTPollen allergy is considered a major public health problem that causes morbidity and subsequently affects a patient's quality of life. Pollen due to their large size cannot enter the thoracic regions of the respiratory tract but can affect the nasopharyngeal mucous membrane. At the same time, the submicronic-pollen particles can act as respirable particles reaching deeper into the upper airways leading to exacerbation of asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and other allergic reactions. Based on...

Proximity and density of unconventional natural gas wells and mental illness and substance use among pregnant individuals: An exploratory study in Canada
CONCLUSION: We observed some evidence of greater odds of mental illness prior to or during pregnancy, and substance use during pregnancy in pregnant individuals living in postal codes with increased UNG well density/proximity, although associations were not observed in smaller buffer zones. This study adds to the growing literature on the adverse health outcomes surrounding living in proximity to UNG operations.PMID:35325816 | DOI:10.1016/j.ijheh.2022.113962 (Source: International Journal of Hygiene and Environmental health)
