The relative oral bioavailability and dermal absorption of chemical substances from environmental media are key factors that are needed to accurately estimate site-specific risks and manage human exposures. This study evaluated the relative oral bioavailability and dermal absorption of several polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) found in soils collected from two formerly used Department of Defense sites impacted by weathered fragments of clay shooting targets. Concentrations of individual carcinogenic PAHs in the ≤250 μm fraction of soil ranged from approximately 0. Read More

Although weather is a major driver of crop yield, many farmers don't know in advance how the weather will vary nor how their crops will respond. We hypothesized that where El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) drives weather patterns, and data on crop response to distinct management practices exists, it should be possible to map ENSO Oceanic Index (ENSO OI) patterns to crop management responses without precise weather data. Time series data on cacao farm yields in Sulawesi, Indonesia, with and without fertilizer, were used to provide proof-of-concept. Read More

Aneuploidy causes birth defects and miscarriages, occurs in nearly all cancers and is a hallmark of aging. Individual aneuploid cells can be eliminated from developing tissues by unknown mechanisms. Cells with ribosomal protein () gene mutations are also eliminated, by cell competition with normal cells. Read More

Climate change is a global issue threatening agricultural production and human survival. However, agriculture sector is a major source of global greenhouse gases (GHGs), especially CH and NO. Crop residue returning (RR) is an efficient practice to sequestrate soil carbon and increase crop yields. Read More

To investigate the incidence and characteristics of osteoporosis and osteoporotic fractures in Korea, we used the Health Insurance Review and Assessment Service (HIRA) database. Patients over 50 years old, who were diagnosed or treated for osteoporosis and osteoporotic fractures in all hospitals and clinics, were analyzed between 1 January 2009 and 31 December 2017 by using the HIRA database that contains prescription data and diagnostic codes. These data were retrospectively analyzed by decade and age-specific and gender-specific incidents in each year. Read More
