Prenatal exposure to mixtures of persistent environmental chemicals and fetal growth outcomes in Western Australia
CONCLUSIONS: Using a Bayesian penalized regression method, we assessed the shapes of exposure-response relationships, controlled for confounding by co-exposure, and estimated the single and combined effects of a large mixture of correlated environmental chemicals on fetal growth. Our findings, based on a small sample of mother-neonate pairs, suggest that mixtures of persistent chemicals are not associated with birth weight, length, and head circumference. The potential for non-monotonic relationships between environmental chemicals and fetal growth outcomes warrants further study.PMID:34883336 | DOI:10.1016/j.ijheh.2021.11...

Maternal air pollution exposure and neonatal congenital heart disease: A multi-city cross-sectional study in eastern China
CONCLUSIONS: Our findings could provide growing evidence regarding the adverse health effects of air pollution on CHD, thereby strengthening the hypothesis that air pollutants have harmful impacts on cardiac development. Further studies are needed to verify the associations.PMID:34875582 | DOI:10.1016/j.ijheh.2021.113898 (Source: International Journal of Hygiene and Environmental health)

Exposure to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and volatile organic compounds is associated with a risk of obesity and diabetes mellitus among Korean adults: Korean National Environmental Health Survey (KoNEHS) 2015-2017
In conclusion, the benzene metabolites t,t-MA and PAH metabolite 2-OHFlu were associated with an increased risk of DM. Urinary biomarkers for PAHs and VOCs were positively associated with BMI in the Korean adult population. Further studies to validate these observations in other populations are warranted.PMID:34864598 | DOI:10.1016/j.ijheh.2021.113886 (Source: International Journal of Hygiene and Environmental health)

National and subnational burden of disease attributable to occupational exposure to solar ultraviolet radiation (SUVR) in Iran, 2005-2019
In this study, the burden of disease induced by occupational exposure to SUVR and its spatiotemporal trend at national and sub-national levels in Iran, 2005-2019 were assessed. The attributable burden of disease was assessed using the following five datasets: (1) distribution of occupational exposure to SUVR, (2) total incidences and deaths of health outcomes of SUVR exposure, (3) population attributable fractions of the health outcomes of SUVR exposure, (4) age-gender distribution of outdoor workers, and (5) disability-adjusted life year (DALY) calculation constants. During 2005-2019, the attributable DALYs increased from...

Traffic exposure, air pollution and children's physical activity at early childhood education and care
This study was part of the Play Spaces and Environments for Children's Physical Activity (PLAYCE) study, Perth, Western Australia. Data from 22 ECEC centres and 478 children were collected. Continuous measures of indoor and outdoor fine particulate matter (PM2.5) were conducted for 48-72 h in each ECEC. Children wore ActiGraph GT3X + accelerometers to measure their physical activity at ECEC. The total length of high traffic roads within a 300m road network service area buffer around each ECEC was used to identify high and low traffic centres.RESULTS: Outdoor PM2.5 concentrations peaked in the afternoon (1pm, 2pm and 6pm) a...
