Air pollution by diesel traffic became a concern in the UK in the 1950s. Exposure levels were assessed via probing the light absorption of filter samples, which was translated to a mass concentration of “diesel smoke” (DS), based on the results of a measurements in the exhaust of a test diesel engine. We convert these DS values to concen...

Extruded double-base (EDB) charges are used mainly due to their efflux having minimum smoke, attractive oxygen balance, and low corrosivity. The propellant class also has desirable burn-rate characteristics since it exhibits plateau burning and has a low temperature sensitivity to burning rate (πk). External ballistic modeling results are...

Background Despite their increasing prevalence and potential, eHealth applications for behavior change suffer from a lack of adherence and from dropout. Advances in virtual coach technology provide new opportunities to improve this. However, these applications still do not always offer what people need. We, therefore, need a better understanding...

Elemental Carbon (EC) is a good indicator for aerosol air quality and a main component in global warming; therefore data on its historic concentration would be highly valuable for an assessment of historic levels. There were already major sources of EC in Europe in the early 20th century, but the component has only been measured since the late...

Op verzoek van de CvIO is de DM25 rookhandgranaat getest om rough handling tijdens gebruik op de man te simuleren. De resultaten tonen aan dat repeterende Hard Drop belasting (val van +/- 1.5 m op harde ondergrond) kan leiden tot kraken, volledige verwijdering van de veiligheidshefboom en inslag van de slagpin op de ontsteker. Er wordt...

Purpose: The aim of this study was to assess the association between sustained smoking and quitting with work-related outcomes among older workers. Methods: We categorized a sample of older employees into non-smokers, sustained smokers and quitters. Multivariable regression models were used to test longitudinal associations of sustained smoking...

Coefficient of Haze (CoH) was the official proxy for the mass concentration of particulate matter in the US from ca. 1950 onwards. Originally, a linearity between CoH and sample load was claimed, but although shortly after the introduction of the method it was found that the relation between mass loading and the fraction of light 10 absorbed by...

Abstract Background: Open burning of anthropogenic sources can release hazardous emissions and has been associated with increased prevalence of cardiopulmonary health outcomes. Exposure to smoke emitted from burn pits in mili tary bases has been linked with respiratory illness among military and civilian personnel returning from war zones....

BACKGROUND: Prenatal exposures to phthalates and bisphenols are associated with impaired brain development in animals. However, epidemiological studies investigating the association between prenatal phthalate or bisphenol exposure and cognition have produced mixed findings and mostly had modest sample sizes and measured the exposure during the...

Background: This individual patient data (IPD) meta-analysis aimed to investigate socioeconomic inequalities in effectiveness on healthy behavior of, and compliance to, workplace health promotion programs. Methods: Dutch (randomized) controlled trials were identified and original IPD were retrieved and harmonized. A two-stage meta-analysis was...

Camera systems are widely used for surveillance in the security and defense domains. The main advantages of camera systems are their high resolution, their ease of use, and the fact that optical imagery is easy to interpret for human operators. However, particularly when considering application in the defense domain, cameras have some...

Smoking during pregnancy is associated with a multitude of health behaviors and with the psychosocial and socio-economic circumstances of pregnant women. Limited research has so far been conducted on the clustering of these characteristics and on their effect on pregnancy outcomes. This study aimed to identify different groups of pregnant women...

The toxicity of smoke-generating ammunition can be established by looking at the complete hand grenade or only at the smoke composition. In this paper both approaches are described. The toxicity of a signalling smoke was assessed as a complete smoke hand grenade whereas for a 76 mm screening smoke canister only a red phosphorus (RP) pellet was...

A significant health and possibly environmental problem is associated with military smokes and obscurants. Besides the fact that these obscuration munitions pose a significant toxicity hazard to the user, the environmental impact of these munitions can also be significant (e.g. due to the use of hexachlorethane). The objective of the SERDP...

There is limited prospective data on the relationship between consumption of vegetables and fruits and the risk of head-neck cancer (HNC) subtypes [i.e., oral cavity cancer (OCC), oro-/hypopharyngeal cancer (OHPC) and laryngeal cancer (LC)]. Therefore, we investigated these associations within the Netherlands Cohort Study, in which 120,852...

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a chronic lung disease that is thought to affect over one million people in Great Britain. The main factor contributing to the development of COPD is tobacco smoke. This paper presents a microsimulation model for the development of COPD, incorporating population dynamics and trends in smoking. The...

Assessing the toxicity of military pyrotechnic products is a growing challenge in the current context of Human and Environment protection. The Allied Ordnance Publication (AOP) 45 and the Standard NATO Agreement (STANAG) 4588 “Guidelines for toxicity testing of smokes, obscurants and pyrotechnics mixtures” proposed a practical framework to...

Fruit and vegetable consumption produces changes in several biomarkers in blood. The present study aimed to examine the dose-response curve between fruit and vegetable consumption and carotenoid (alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, beta-cryptoxanthin, lycopene, lutein and zeaxanthin), folate and vitamin C concentrations. Furthermore, a prediction...
