The rising prevalence of overweight and obesity places a financial burden on health services and on the wider economy. Health service and societal costs of overweight and obesity are typically estimated by top-down approaches which derive population attributable fractions for a range of conditions associated with increased body fat or bottom-up methods(More)
BACKGROUND Overweight and obesity prevalence has risen dramatically in recent decades. While it is known that overweight and obesity is associated with a wide range of chronic diseases, the cumulative burden of chronic disease in the population associated with overweight and obesity is not well quantified. The aims of this paper were to examine the(More)
BACKGROUND Given the scale of the current obesity epidemic and associated health consequences there has been increasing concern about the economic burden placed on society in terms of direct healthcare costs and indirect societal costs. In the Republic of Ireland these costs were estimated at €1.13 billion for 2009. The total direct healthcare costs for six(More)
C-reactive protein (CRP) and Serum amyloid A protein (SAA) increases with systemic inflammation and are related to worse survival for breast cancer survivors. This study examines the association between percent body fat and SAA and CRP and the potential interaction with NSAID use and weight change. Participants included 134 non-Hispanic white and Hispanic(More)
Our work on Delta water quality issues began in the summer of 1989 as part of reviewing the expected water quality in the Delta Wetlands in-Delta water storage reservoirs. In the spring 1999 we became involved in the San Joaquin River (SJR) Deep Water Ship Channel (DWSC) low-DO problem as a technical resource to the SJR DO TMDL Steering Committee. It was(More)
OBJECTIVES The increasing prevalence of overweight and obesity worldwide continues to compromise population health and creates a wider societal cost in terms of productivity loss and premature mortality. Despite extensive international literature on the cost of overweight and obesity, findings are inconsistent between Europe and the USA, and particularly(More)

The federal Clean Water Act prohibits NPDES-permitted wastewater discharges from causing ambient water quality standard violations in the receiving waters for the discharge. This approach is being used to regulate point source discharges of domestic and industrial wastewaters. The US EPA (1990) implemented a national urban area and highway stormwater runoff(More)
In the program described, the use of total communication (TC) did not impede speech development in preschool deaf children. Evidence indicates that sign language facilitated the young hearing-impaired child's acquisition of communicative oral speech. Exposure to sign language combined with speech enhanced the meaningfulness of residual hearing and(More)
