Biodiesel made from the transesterification of plant- and animal-derived oils is an important alternative fuel source for diesel engines. Although numerous studies have reported health effects associated with petroleum diesel emissions, information on biodiesel emissions are more limited. To this end, a program at the U.S. EPA assessed health...

There is a need for representative in vitro models to assess the effects of airborne particles on lung health. The ob-jective of this study was to assess the cellular effects of cerium oxide (Ce02) particles exposed via an air—liquid interface in three relevant cell models in parallel. BEAS-2B, A549, and MucilAirTM cells were exposed for 1 hour...

Background: Living longer independently may be facilitated by an attractive and safe residential area, which stimulates physical activity. We studied the association between area characteristics and disabilities and whether this association is mediated by transport-related physical activity (TPA). Methods: Longitudinal data of 271 Dutch...

Background: Moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA) is considered important to prevent disability among community-dwelling older people. To develop MVPA programs aimed at reducing or preventing disability more insight is needed in the contributions of exercise duration and intensity and the interplay between the two. Methods: Longitudinal...

In het voorjaar van 2014 zijn hoge concentraties fijnstof waargenomen en meldden veel mensen last van hun luchtwegen. In België is van tevoren gewaarschuwd voor de hoge concentraties, in Nederland niet omdat de smogregeling in Nederland anders is dan in België. Over deze situatie is debat gevoerd in de Tweede Kamer. Bij het algemeen overleg van...

Background: Exacerbations constitute a major cause of morbidity and mortality in patients suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Both bacterial infections, such as those with non-typeable Haemophilus influenzae (NTHi), and exposures to diesel engine emissions are known to contribute to exacerbations in COPD patients....

Physical inactivity among children is on the rise. Active transport to school (ATS), namely walking and cycling there, adds to children's activity level. Little is known about how exposures along actual routes influence children's transport behavior. This study examined how natural and built environments influence mode choice among Dutch...

Background: Operating lamps are often seen as the most disruptive factors within the protective area in the operating theater (OT). The effect of the operation lamps (with different shapes) should be demonstrated in an OT by trial, since research on the effects of the lamps is still limited. Objectives: The main aim of this study was to...

In ziekenhuizen is hygiëne van levensbelang. Installaties voor ventilatie en luchtbehandeling zijn er dan ook op gericht om de lucht ultraschoon te houden. Tegelijkertijd vraagt goede patiëntzorg ook om comfort en aangename temperaturen. "Combineer dat met de roep om energie-efficiency en je hebt een zeer complexe casus in handen," zegt Roberto...

Background: Many older persons prefer to live independent as long as possible. A living environment facilitating physical activity may be important for this purpose, but the design of ‘activity-friendly’ living environments for older persons remains less clear. In a study in Spijkenisse (the Netherlands), characteristics of the living...
