Exporting Pandora’s Box—Exploitation, Risk Communication, and Public Health Problems Associated with the Export of Hazard

Despite attempts to international control through the Basel Convention on the Control of Transboundary Movements of Wastes and their disposal, hazardous operations remain a problem. Although federal policy can help minimize risks to certain residents in certain regions, some people in certain regions may be in danger, other people in other countries can be exposed to increased risk, even unintentionally.

Nitrate from agriculture: a hazard to health and the environment?

Abstract The unfortunate truth that the world can no longer supply itself with synthetic nitrogen fertilizer counterpoints the widespread concern about agricultural nitrate losses is not new. This paper explores the ways in which soil nitrate and the nitrous oxide that result from it are lost from agricultural and grassland farming techniques to natural waters and the atmosphere. Phosphate, rather than nitrate, is often the ion that limits the growth of blue-green algae in freshwater, but not in the open ocean or coastal waters, but not in the open ocean. Nitrous oxide, which comes from soil nitrate, is also responsible for damage to the stratospheric ozone layer, although not specifically. Nitrous oxide occurs as an inert carrier for nitric oxide in the troposphere, in which the nitric oxide would otherwise react with other free radicals.

Triangulating the New Frontier of Health Geo-Data: Assessing Tick-Borne Disease Risk as an Occupational Hazard among Vulnerable Populations

To improve health outcomes, determining interventions to combat disease often requires complex evaluations of spatial-temporal data. This paper is part of a multi-modal strategy involving triangulation geographically standardized health data incorporating studies on canine tick species, Lyme disease prevalence, and patient symptom severity, indicating potential subsequent disease burden. According to the survey results collected by migrant and seasonal workers in Texas were employed to determine TBD risk based on symptoms, occupations, and locations. Respondents with a higher risk of a TBD were also more likely to report the most common signs of LD and other TBD on the Horowitz Multiple Systemic Infectious Disease Syndrome Questionnaire. Many in the highly ranked scoring group also experienced more poor health and mental issues during the days. Also, nearly a third of those experiencing severe symptoms had never had a previous Lyme disease diagnosis.
