    Sammanfattning : The aim of this study is to evaluate the outcome of adoptions and to study the gene-environment influences on psychiatric illness as well as sick-leave patterns. The material consists of 2 966 adopted persons born between 1917 and 1949, their 5 932 adoptive parents and 5 438 identified biological parents. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Assessing the health consequences of deficiencies in water distribution networks: a basis for future network management

    Detta är en avhandling från Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Författare :Victor Vinas; [2018]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; distribution network; microbial risk; QMRA; epidemiological studies; risk management;

    Sammanfattning : Drinking water distribution networks are susceptible to incidents that may contaminate the drinking water being served to the population. Five major risks that can impact negatively the health of consumers have been identified by a literature study: intrusion, cross-connections and backflows, unhygienic repairs or maintenance works, inadequate management of storage reservoirs and biofilms.

  3. 3. Subjective annoyance attributed to electrical equipments and smells - Epidemiology and stress physiology

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, Lund University

    Författare :Frida Eek; [2005]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; environmental intolerance; IEI; epidemiology; diabetology; secreting systems; Endocrinology; cortisol; stress; sekretion; Endokrinologi; Public health; diabetologi; Folkhälsa; epidemiologi; Occupational health; Yrkesmedicin; industrial medicine; arbetsmiljömedicin; Environmental health; Miljömedicin;

    Sammanfattning : Self-reported annoyance from electrical equipment has been in evidence since the mid-eighties, and the first reports of illness from everyday chemicals arose already in the 1960?s. However, the extent of the problem or the mechanisms behind the development of environmentally related annoyance has not yet been fully established. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Office work and physical factors health aspects of electromagnetic fields and light

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, Lund University

    Författare :Monica Sandström; Kjell Hansson Mild; Gunnar Nordberg; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Facial skin symptoms; office illness; electrical hypersensitivity; physical environment; flicker; jitter; neurophysiological effects;

    Sammanfattning : The overall aim of this thesis is to increase our knowledge of the physical environment of office workers with special focus on electromagnetic fields and to address the question of whether electromagnetic fields can directly or indirectly contribute to symptoms or discomfort among video display terminal ( VDT) workers. Furthermore, we have measured light modulation from various commonly used light sources in laboratory conditions and, as a second step, used modulated light as stimulus for provocation of neurophysiological responses in persons with perceived “electrical hypersensitivity” (EHS).

  5. 5. Precipitation, Raw Water Quality, Drinking Water Treatment and Gastrointestinal Illness

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Umeå University

    Författare :Andreas Tornevi; Bertil Forsberg; Gordon Langston Nichols; [2015]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Epidemiology; epidemiologi;

    Sammanfattning : Background On numerous occasions, outbreaks of acute gastrointestinal illnesses (AGI) have been linked to municipal drinking water in the industrialised world. Many of the reported outbreaks were observed after heavy rainfall events, which suggests that such events could result in a deterioration in the quality of drinking water. LÄS MER
