Association between prenatal cadmium exposure and child development: The Japan Environment and Children's study
Int J Hyg Environ Health. 2022 May 28;243:113989. doi: 10.1016/j.ijheh.2022.113989. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTCadmium is a heavy metal that can be found in soil, air, food, and water. Cadmium has toxic effects on the kidneys, bones, and respiratory system. Prenatal exposure to cadmium has been found to affect the mental development of children, but inconsistent results have been found in different studies. Therefore, it is unknown that prenatal cadmium exposure associated with child development after birth. To elucidate whether cadmium affect the child development or not, we analyzed nation-wide cohort study data, the ...

Urinary 3-phenoxybenzoic acid (3-PBA) levels and changes in hematological parameters in Korean adult population: A Korean National Environmental Health Survey (KoNEHS) 2012-2014 analysis
This study aimed to investigate the effect of urinary 3-phenoxybenzoic acid (3-PBA) concentrations on hematological parameters in a representative South Korean adult population. We analyzed data from 6296 adults enrolled in the Korean National Environmental Health Survey (2012-2014). We employed multiple linear regression analysis to evaluate the association of urinary 3-PBA levels with eight hematological profiles: white blood cells (WBCs), red blood cells (RBCs), hemoglobin, hematocrit, platelets, mean corpuscular volume (MCV), mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH), and mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC). The u...

Public health performance of sanitation technologies in Tamil Nadu, India: Initial perspectives based on E. coli release
Int J Hyg Environ Health. 2022 May 25;243:113987. doi: 10.1016/j.ijheh.2022.113987. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTSanitation is intended to reduce the spread and burden of diseases transmitted from excreta. Pathogen reduction from excreta before sludge or effluent discharge to the environment would seem a logical and useful performance indicator for sanitation systems. However, the relative magnitudes of pathogen release from common sanitation technologies are not well understood. We, therefore, investigated the feasibility of performance measurement of different sanitation technologies in Tamil Nadu, India in reducing the...

Longitudinal measures of phthalate exposure and asthma exacerbation in a rural agricultural cohort of Latino children in Yakima Valley, Washington
This study used data from the Home Air in Agriculture Pediatric Intervention Trial (HAPI) to examine relationships between phthalate exposure and outcomes related to childhood asthma exacerbation. We used measures of phthalate metabolites and respiratory health measures including fractional exhaled nitric oxide (FENO), the Asthma Control Test (ACT), caregiver report of symptoms, and urinary leukotriene E4 (uLTE4) to estimate longitudinal associations using mixed effects models, adjusted for covariates. For 100% (i.e., doubling) increases in mono-(2-ethyl-5-carboxypentyl) phthalate (MECPP), mono-2-ethylhexyl phthalate (MEHP...
