In present work, the concentration of essential elements, copper (Cu), iron (Fe) and zinc (Zn) were measured in ten different juices, to evaluate whether the intakes of under study nutrients accomplished within recommended permissible levels. Flame atomic absorption spectrometry (FAAS) was used to estimate and evaluate the levels of essential elements such(More)
It is well established that a pregnant woman’s habits affect the health of her unborn child, but the extent of the impact is less well known. Recent studies of tragic historical events, namely the Dutch Hongerwinter and the Great Chinese Famine, have begun to highlight the trans-generational relationship between food and genes. The Hongerwinter (hunger(More)
BACKGROUND Dental caries is a highly prevalent chronic disease which affects the majority of people. It has been postulated that the consumption of xylitol could help to prevent caries. The evidence on the effects of xylitol products is not clear and therefore it is important to summarise the available evidence to determine its effectiveness and safety. (More)
Systematic reviews are essential in summarising evidence and providing an indication of its strength and direction. This is why they often inform clinical decision making. Although the quantity of reviews published is increasing, concerns about their quality may sometimes be questioned. This paper highlights the aspects of systematic review methodology that(More)
Surveillance is an important need for a secured and supervised environment. Manual supervision for the purpose of surveillance proves to be expensive and prone to slipups. Many researchers have worked to provide an automated solution to this problem. In this article, we present a solution to this problem using image moments and recurrent neural networks.(More)
We report fabrication of poly (ɛ-caprolactone) (PCL)/cellulose (CEL) nanofiber blends via co-electrospinning for the possible use as biofilters and biosensor strips. Five different ratios of PCL to CEL were fabricated to investigate the wicking behavior. The cellulose acetate (CA) was taken as precursor to make cellulose nanofibers. Double nozzles were(More)
