  • Reproductive toxicology in occupational settings: an update

    Objective: This article mainly attempts to review the recent human literature on the adverse effects of occupational factors on fertility, developmental effects and genetic changes in the germ line, which lead to genetic malformations or to genetic disease. The secondary study aim is to answer whether occupational exposures are quantitative momentously for 15% involuntarily childless couples, ...

  • Zebrafish as a model system to study toxicology

    Monitoring and assessing the effects of contaminants in the aquatic eco‐environment is critical in protecting human health and the environment. The zebrafish has been widely used as a prominent model organism in different fields because of its small size, low cost, diverse adaptability, short breeding cycle, high fecundity, and transparent embryos. Recent studies have demonstrated that ...

  • Genetically modified organisms: the side not revealed by science

    The efforts on the part of Monsanto to introduce Roundup Ready (RR) soybeans into Brazil have been impeded since 1998 by court action by IDEC (a consumer rights organisation) and Greenpeace. The lack of toxicological studies concerning the specific environmental impact on Brazil is the main argument against the marketing of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in the country. Being unable to ...

  • The common ecotoxicology laboratory strain of Hyalella azteca is genetically distinct from most wild strains sampled in eastern North America

    The amphipod Hyalella azteca is commonly used as a model for determining safe concentrations of contaminants in freshwaters. We sequenced the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) gene for representatives of 38 populations of this species complex from US and Canadian toxicology research laboratories and eastern North American field sites to determine their genetic relationships. ...

  • Susceptibility and vulnerability to health effects of air pollution: The case of nitrogen dioxide

    Abstract: Epidemiological and toxicological studies have reported adverse health effects in response to exposure to air pollution including nitrogen dioxide (NO2). Some of these studies have indicated that specific populations may be at different risk of NO2 related health effects that others. Adverse health effects from air pollution are not equally distributed among populations and ...

  • When it comes to food packaging, what we don’t know could hurt us

    Recent analyses raise disturbing questions about the health and environmental effects of the stuff that encases our edibles. It’s almost impossible to imagine life without flexible, transparent and water-resistant food packaging, without plastic sandwich bags, cling film or shelves filled with plastic jars, tubs and tubes, and durable bags and ...

  • A Trace of Arsenic

    The cans of baby formula invaded Brian Jackson’s Dartmouth College lab late in 2010. His team picked up an armful of popular brands at the food co-op in Hanover, N.H. Then another armload. Eventually Jackson had a cabinet full of the brightly labeled canisters. Today, he still keeps a few in his office. Not as clutter — that’s not his style. He just likes to keep his toxicology ...

  • What are we doing to our children’s brains?

    Environmental chemicals are wreaking havoc to last a lifetime The numbers are startling. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 1.8 million more children in the U.S. were diagnosed with developmental disabilities between 2006 and 2008 than a decade earlier. During this time, the prevalence of autism climbed nearly 300 percent, while that of ...
