Human data indicate an increased risk for cancer of the oral cavity for snuff dippers. Popular snuff products from the United States, Germany, Sweden, and Denmark were analyzed for tobacco-specific N-nitrosamines (TSNA). These compounds are formed during tobacco processing from nicotine, nornicotine, and anatabine and represent the only known carcinogens in(More)
Previous studies investigating body temperature responses in obese individuals during exercise in the heat fail to control metabolic heat production or hydration status during exercise. To determine if there are differences in body temperature responses between obese and non-obese females when controlling metabolic heat production during exercise. Twenty(More)
Rats were given a 200 mg/kg body weight daily dose of alpha-tocopherol by i.p. injection for 15 days. This resulted in elevated levels of glutathione in both liver and brain, and in a reduced hepatic rate of generation of reactive oxygen species. The depression of hepatic and cerebral glutathione levels in ethanol-consuming rats was prevented by(More)
Laboratory-based studies indicate mild dehydration adversely affects mood. Although ultra-endurance events often result in mild to moderate dehydration, little research has evaluated whether the relationship between hydration status and mood state also exists in these arduous events. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to evaluate how hydration status(More)
N-Nitrosodiethanolamine was assayed for carcinogenicity in Syrian golden hamsters by s.c. injection, topical application, and oral cavity swabbing. Three groups of 30 hamsters each received 27 weekly s.c. injections of either 500, 170, or 58 mg of N-nitrosodiethanolamine per kg in 0.9% NaCl solution. In the group treated with 500 mg/kg, 19 of 30 animals(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine if breakfast macronutrient composition improved thermic effect of feeding (TEF) and appetite after a one-week adaptation in young women who habitually skip breakfast. A randomized, controlled study was conducted in females (24.1 ± 2 years), who skip breakfast (≥5 times/week). Participants were placed into one of(More)
We have found that around 2 years of age all surviving CBA T6/T6 mice develop hyperactivity and progressive weight loss, terminating in death, which is preceded in the males by priapism, persistent penile erection. As there is no genital lesion, the priapism is presumably of neurogenic origin, providing an invaluably specific sign of development of a(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose was to determine if an air-filled vest worn under ballistic protection reduces physiological strain during exercise in the heat either while wearing a tactical military (TM) protective vest or a law enforcement (LE) concealable vest. METHODS Sixteen men (24.5±3.9 years; 179.5±5.6 cm; 84.6±12.3kg) performed either two or four trials(More)
