Obesity, hypertension, and the risk of kidney cancer in men.
TLDR
Higher body-mass index and elevated blood pressure independently increase the long-term risk of renal-cell cancer in men and a reduction in blood pressure lowers the risk. Expand
Dampness in buildings and health. Nordic interdisciplinary review of the scientific evidence on associations between exposure to "dampness" in buildings and health effects (NORDDAMP).
TLDR
The evidence for a causal association between "dampness" and health effects is strong, however, the mechanisms are unknown and there is sufficient evidence to take preventive measures against dampness in buildings. Expand
Asthma and asthma-like symptoms in adults assessed by questionnaires. A literature review.
TLDR
Using the presence of bronchial hyperreactivity (BHR) as a gold standard for asthma is that many people with BHR report no respiratory complaints, so the effect of using a methacholine challenge test as a standard for the disease will be an underestimation of the sensitivity of the questionnaire.

Age, bodyweight, smoking habits and the risk of severe osteoarthritis in the hip and knee in men
TLDR
BMI is an important predictor of osteoarthritis even within normal BMI, and contrary to studies of radiographic osteOarthritis, this study indicates higher risk of hip than of knee osteoartritis. Expand
Comparative Health Impact Assessment of Local and Regional Particulate Air Pollutants in Scandinavia
TLDR
The results, based on studies of background exposure, show that long-range transported sulfate rich particles dominate the health effects of PM in Sweden and the same results would be found for the whole of Scandinavia and many countries influenced by transboundary air pollution. Expand
Fifteen‐year follow‐up of hand eczema: persistence and consequences
TLDR
This study highlights the importance of knowing the carrier and removal status of canine coronavirus, as a source of infection for other animals, not necessarily belonging to the same breeds. Expand
Adverse health effects from ambient air pollution in relation to residential wood combustion in modern society.
TLDR
There seems to be no reason to assume that the effects of particulate matter in areas polluted by wood smoke are weaker than elsewhere, and the relative risks were even stronger in the studies in which residential wood combustion was considered a major source of particulates matter. Expand
Occupational exposure to particulate air pollution and mortality due to ischaemic heart disease and cerebrovascular disease
TLDR
Occupational exposure to particulate air pollution, especially diesel exhaust, among construction workers increases the risk for ischaemic heart disease and cerebrovascular disease. Expand
Effects of Training on Female Trapezius Myalgia: An Intervention Study With a 3-Year Follow-up Period
TLDR
The long-term effect of all the training programs was low and pain in neck and shoulder muscles was persistent in a large proportion of the women over the 3 years. Expand
Lung cancer and exposure to quartz and diesel exhaust in Swedish iron ore miners with concurrent exposure to radon
TLDR
Crystalline silica, a known carcinogen, probably affects lung cancer risk in iron ore miners and is a possible confounder in the analysis of relationship between radon and lung cancer. Expand
