in the August issue and Jusko et al. (2008) in the present issue of Environmental Health Perspectives provide additional evidence of adverse health effects in children at blood lead levels (BLLs) < 10 µg/dL—the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) BLL of concern. A surprising feature of the new data in children with BLLs < 10 µg/dL is the(More)
In a case-control study to investigate whether women who use drugs to induce ovulation are at increased risk of conception of a child with a neural tube defect, 571 women who had a fetus or child with a neural tube defect, 546 women who had a fetus or child with other abnormalities, and 573 women who had an apparently normal fetus or child were questioned(More)

The analysis was based on 294 new cases of coronary heart disease. There was a positive association between coffee intake and risk, but it became statistically insignificant when(More)
During ten years of follow-up 701 deaths occurred among 8006 45-68-year-old Honolulu Japanese men who were originally examined in 1965-68. Mortality was highest in both the leanest and fattest men and lowest in the fourth quintile of body mass index (BMI). The excess deaths in the top quintile were due primarily to coronary heart disease which was directly(More)
BACKGROUND Blood transfusion might affect long-term mortality by changing immune function and thus potentially increasing the risk of subsequent infections and cancer recurrence. Compared with a restrictive transfusion strategy, a more liberal strategy could reduce cardiac complications by lowering myocardial damage, thereby reducing future deaths from(More)
BACKGROUND The incidence rates of ischemic stroke and ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) have decreased significantly in the United States since 1950. However, there is evidence of flattening of this trend or increasing rates for stroke in patients younger than 50 years. The objective of this study was to examine the changes in incidence(More)
