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)

Associations of total urinary arsenic with total cholesterol and high-density lipoprotein among 12-17-year-old participants from the 2009-2016 NHANES cycles: A cross-sectional study
CONCLUSIONS: We found a positive association of approximated unmethylated inorganic arsenic exposure with TC, and contrary to our expectation, with HDL. There was no effect modification by weight status. Our findings should be confirmed by conducting longitudinal studies among adolescents exposed to low-level arsenic and focusing specifically on urinary inorganic arsenic concentrations.PMID:35298926 | DOI:10.1016/j.ijheh.2022.113950 (Source: International Journal of Hygiene and Environmental health)

Wastewater-based epidemiology for early warning of SARS-COV-2 circulation: A pilot study conducted in Sicily, Italy
We present the results of SARS-CoV-2 environmental surveillance activity in wastewater samples collected between September 2020 and July 2021 in 9 wastewater treatment plants (WTPs) located in central and western Sicily, serving over 570,000 residents. The presence of SARS-CoV-2, determined in 206 wastewater samples using RT-qPCR assays, was correlated with the notified and geo-referenced cases on the areas served by the WTPs in the same study period. Overall, 51% of wastewater samples were positive. Samples were correlated with 33,807 SARS-CoV-2 cases, reported in 4 epidemic waves, with a cumulative prevalence of 5.9% amo...
