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...

Introducing nature at the work floor: A nature-based intervention to reduce stress and improve cognitive performance
CONCLUSIONS: This study provides novel evidence that exposure to nature during work hours reduces stress and improves cognitive performance. The trial is registered with ClinicalTrials.gov, number: NCT04111796.PMID:34847453 | DOI:10.1016/j.ijheh.2021.113884 (Source: International Journal of Hygiene and Environmental health)

Proximity to endocrine-disrupting pesticides and risk of testicular germ cell tumors (TGCT) among adolescents: A population-based case-control study in California
CONCLUSIONS: TGCT among adolescents in California was associated with prenatal residential proximity to acephate and malathion among Latinos, and with carbaryl among non-Latinos. These results suggest that the rise in TGCT risk among Latinos may be associated with exposure to these pesticides.PMID:34839102 | DOI:10.1016/j.ijheh.2021.113881 (Source: International Journal of Hygiene and Environmental health)

Is living in a region with high groundwater arsenic contamination associated with adverse reproductive health outcomes? An analysis using nationally representative data from India
CONCLUSIONS: While arsenic exposure has been implicated with a range of adverse health outcomes, this is one of the first population-level studies to document an association between arsenic and three adverse reproductive pregnancy outcomes. The high levels of spatial correlation suggest that further and targeted efforts to mitigate arsenic in groundwater are needed.PMID:34837822 | DOI:10.1016/j.ijheh.2021.113883 (Source: International Journal of Hygiene and Environmental health)

Time trend of the exposure to geraniol in 24-h urine samples derived from the German Environmental Specimen Bank from 2004 to 2018
Int J Hyg Environ Health. 2021 Nov 10;239:113880. doi: 10.1016/j.ijheh.2021.113880. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTGeraniol (trans-3,7-dimethyl-2,6-octadiene-1-ol) is an acyclic isoprenoid monoterpene with a widespread use as fragrance in consumer products, agrochemicals and pharmaceuticals. The class of terpene chemicals has been associated with varying sensitizing potencies. A recently developed sensitive LC- MS/MS method for the analysis of geraniol metabolites was further improved and validated for the two metabolites, 8-carboxygeraniol and Hildebrandt acid. The successfully validated method was applied to 250 urine sam...
