CONCLUSION: It could be concluded that the group with ADHD had a small but positive influence on the results for most of the tests, indicating that they are less affected by the presence of WBV. Since many students and workers have ADHD, this may be considered an important finding. It was shown that objective results should not be the only measures to use, as the subjective evaluation may explain the results better.

CONCLUSIONS: These data suggest that English language proficiency is associated not only with the risk of work-related injury but also to the long-term recovery outcomes. We conclude that despite access to language interpreter services, injured LOTE workers experience English language proficiency dependent, and injury severity independent, recovery barriers which need to be overcome to improve long term recovery outcomes.

Making music to making lives better: A transition from musician to health professional.
Abstract The day my pain specialist told me I would never be pain-free again, I knew my music career was over. I was 21 years old, and had been in constant pain for about two years. I had experienced intermittent jaw pain for about 10 years, but having braces on my teeth, and later having my wisdom teeth removed was supposed to fix it. It did not. The day of my surgery was the last time I had been pain free, even for a second. The years that followed were horrible, and my life was turned upside down.

Evaluation of oxidative stress and pro-inflammatory cytokines in occupationally exposed cadmium workers.
CONCLUSION: Occupational exposure to even low levels of Cd may result in oxidative stress in workers primarily via decrease in antioxidant enzymes and increasing lipid peroxidation. Increased oxidative stress in turn may result in immune cell activation which may result in increased concentration of pro-inflammatory cytokine in the exposed workers.

CONCLUSIONS: Performance-related pay induces objectively measurable stress.

Sedentary lifestyle among office workers and coronary heart disease risk factors due to the COVID-19 quarantine.
Abstract The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the entire world. It is difficult to follow protocols and regulations set forth by governments, designed by the World Health Organization. The most common protocol set forth by governments is quarantining at home. Many occupations must stay home to comply with this protocol. Among these occupations, office workers are the most common group to comply and work from home. This has led to a lack of daily movement and increased sedentary lifestyle, which has made employees prone to developing coronary heart disease (CHD). Additionally, obesity is a known risk factor for this ...
