    Sammanfattning : Humans are continuously exposed to complex mixtures of anthropogenic chemicals. This thesis focus on human exposure to persistent organic pollutants (POPs). POPs ability to bioaccumulate and biomagnify together with the extensive historical use of POPs in e.g. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Human exposure to persistent organic pollutants Illustrated by four case studies in Europe

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Institutionen för miljökemi

    Författare :Jana Weiss; Stockholms universitet.; [2006]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Human exposure; Persistent organic pollutants POPs ; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Environmental chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Miljökemi;

    Sammanfattning : An extensive use of chemicals in countless consumer products has resulted in human exposure to several persistent organic pollutants (POPs). Sufficient knowledge about their chemical composition properties and environmental faith is required, to be able to proper risk assess and regulate the substances. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Fine and ultrafine particle exposure: Health effects and biomarkers

    Detta är en avhandling från Lund University, Faculty of Medicine

    Författare :Yiyi Xu; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2017]
    Nyckelord :particulate matter; Occupational Exposure : adverse effects; mitochondrial dna; telomere length;

    Sammanfattning : Particle, especially fine and ultrafine particle exposure has been linked to lower airway infections, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), ischemic heart disease, stroke and cancer. The underlying mechanisms are under active investigation, and are still not fully understood. LÄS MER

  4. 4. What contributes to human body burdens of phthalate esters? An experimental approach

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Department of Environmental Science and Analytical Chemistry, Stockholm University

    Sammanfattning : Phthalate esters (PEs) and alternative plasticizers used as additives in numerous consumer products are continuously released into the environment leading to subsequent human exposure. The ubiquitous presence and potential adverse health effects (e.g. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Chemicals in consumer products Bridging the gap between academic research and chemicals regulation

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Environmental Science and Analytical Chemistry, Stockholm University : Stockholm University

    Författare :Linda Molander; Stockholms universitet.; [2015]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; consumer products; articles; chemicals; chemicals regulation; REACH; risk management; health risk assessment; non-standard toxicity studies; study evaluation; reporting guidance; endocrine disrupting compounds; bisphenol A; low dose effects; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : Exposure to chemicals emitting from consumer products, such as clothes, electronic devices, toys and kitchen-ware, has emerged as an issue of public health and environmental concern. The use of chemicals having endocrine disrupting properties in commercial products is receiving particular attention as low dose exposures of such chemicals have been associated with adverse effects in both human and wildlife populations.
