Bisphenol A and declining semen quality: A systematic review to support the derivation of a reference dose for mixture risk assessments
Int J Hyg Environ Health. 2022 Feb 12;241:113942. doi: 10.1016/j.ijheh.2022.113942. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTTo support a mixture risk assessment with a focus on male reproductive health, we conducted a systematic review of associations between bisphenol A (BPA) exposures and declines in semen quality, based on animal and epidemiological studies. Contrary to a widely held view that there is "conflicting" evidence of such associations, our review and confidence rating approach reveals that animal studies provide convincing evidence of declines of semen quality after gestational BPA exposures. Many of the reported negat...

A systematic review on solid fuel combustion exposure and respiratory health in adults in Europe, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand
Int J Hyg Environ Health. 2022 Feb 8;241:113926. doi: 10.1016/j.ijheh.2022.113926. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTEpidemiological studies performed in low- and middle-income countries have shown a positive association between solid fuel burning exposure and adverse health effects, including respiratory effects in adults. However, the evidence is less clear in other countries. We performed a systematic review of epidemiological studies conducted in Europe, North America (Canada and USA only), Australia and New Zealand on the association between outdoor and indoor exposure to solid fuel (biomass and coal) combustion and respi...

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in men and lactating women in Slovenia: Results of the first national human biomonitoring
Int J Hyg Environ Health. 2022 Feb 7;241:113943. doi: 10.1016/j.ijheh.2022.113943. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTIn the first national human biomonitoring study in the Slovenian population of adults (18-49 years), including men (n = 297) and lactating primiparous women (n = 304), exposure to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) was evaluated. Nine urinary metabolites of four parent PAHs were determined. These included 1-hydroxypyrene (1-OHPYR), 2-hydroxynaphthalene (2-OHNAP), 2-hydroxyphenanthrene (2-OHPHE), 3-hydroxyphenanthrene (3-OHPHE), 4-hydroxyphenanthrene (4-OHPHE), a combination of 2-hydroxyfluorene and 3-hydrox...

The modifying effect of trait anxiety on the association of fine particulate matter with heart rate variability variables
CONCLUSION: Our study suggests that trait anxiety could modify the association of short-term exposure to PM2.5 with HRV variables, indicating that higher trait anxiety may increase the cardiac susceptibility to air pollution in the study participants.PMID:35134745 | DOI:10.1016/j.ijheh.2022.113933 (Source: International Journal of Hygiene and Environmental health)

Associations between drinking water disinfection byproducts and menstrual cycle characteristics: A cross-sectional study among women attending an infertility clinic
Int J Hyg Environ Health. 2022 Jan 31;241:113931. doi: 10.1016/j.ijheh.2022.113931. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTDisinfection byproducts (DBPs) have been shown to alter ovarian steroidogenesis and cause estrous cyclicity disturbance and prolongation in experimental studies, however human studies are lacking. We aimed to evaluate the cross-sectional associations between drinking water DBPs and menstrual cycle characteristics. A total of 1078 women attending an infertility clinic in Wuhan, China were included between December 2018 and January 2020. Characteristics of menstrual cycle were collected by questionnaires. Concent...
