    Sammanfattning : The worldwide increasing number of persons affected by largely preventable diseases like diabetes demands better prevention and treatment. Insulin is required for effective utilisation of circulating nutrients. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Metabolic factors and cancer risk : prospective studies on prostate cancer, colorectal cancer, and cancer overall

    Författare :Tanja Stocks; Pär Stattin; Håkan Jonsson; Annie Lukanova; Jaap Seidell; Umeå universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Background: A large number of prospective studies have shown that overweight and diabetes are related to an increased risk of many cancers, including colorectal cancer. In contrast, diabetes has been related to a decreased risk of prostate cancer, and overweight has been related to an increased risk of fatal, but not of incident, prostate cancer. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Slip and fall risk on ice and snow : identification, evaluation and prevention

    Författare :Chuansi Gao; Luleå University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Winter sport; Gait; Dynamic balance; EMG; Experience; Usability; Coefficient of friction; Footwear; Systems model; Ergonomics; Safety; Accident; Risk; Ice and snow; Slip and fall;

    Sammanfattning : Slip and fall accidents and associated injuries on ice and snow are prevalent among outdoor workers and the general public in winter in many regions of the world. To understand and tackle this multi-factorial problem, a multidisciplinary approach was used to identify and evaluate slip and fall risks, and to propose recommendations for prevention of slips and falls on icy and snowy surfaces.

  4. 4. Identification and evaluation of slip and fall risk on ice and snow

    Författare :Chuansi Gao; Luleå University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; slip and fall accidents and injuries; ice and snow; coefficient of friction COF ; slip resistance; footwear; winter sport; perception of slip and fall risk;

    Sammanfattning : Roads and pavements covered with ice and snow during winter in the Nordic and other cold regions are slippery, which result in the prevalence of slip and fall accidents among not only the public, but also outdoor workers. Literature and injury statistics revealed that the most frequently specified contributory factor for occupational slip, trip and fall accidents in Sweden is snow and ice. LÄS MER
