Nutritional management for enteric methane abatement: A review
A variety of nutritional management strategies that reduce enteric methane (CH4) production are discussed. Strategies such as increasing the level of grain in the diet, inclusion of lipids andExpand
Supplementation of Acacia mearnsii tannins decreases methanogenesis and urinary nitrogen in forage-fed sheep
TLDR
The results suggest that supplemented Acacia mearnsii tannins can be useful in mitigating methane and potential gaseous nitrogen emissions, whereas a replacement of grass by legumes obviously shows no advantage in this respect. Expand
Radon in homes and risk of lung cancer: collaborative analysis of individual data from 13 European case-control studies.
TLDR
Collectively, though not separately, these studies show appreciable hazards from residential radon, particularly for smokers and recent ex-smokers, and indicate that it is responsible for about 2% of all deaths from cancer in Europe. Expand
Radon in homes and risk of lung cancer: collaborative analysis of individual data from 13 European case-control studies
TLDR
Collectively, though not separately, these studies show appreciable hazards from residential radon, particularly for smokers and recent ex-smokers, and indicate that it is responsible for about 2% of all deaths from cancer in Europe. Expand
Differences in carcass and meat characteristics between chicken indigenous to northern Thailand (Black-boned and Thai native) and imported extensive breeds (Bresse and Rhode Island red).
TLDR
Meat of indigenous chickens has some unique features and seems to have more advantages over imported breeds than disadvantages, especially when determined for a niche market serving consumers who prefer chewy, low-fat chicken meat. Expand
Residential radon and lung cancer--detailed results of a collaborative analysis of individual data on 7148 persons with lung cancer and 14,208 persons without lung cancer from 13 epidemiologic
TLDR
These data provide firm evidence that residential radon acts as a cause of lung cancer in the general population and provide a solid basis for the formulation of policies with which to manage risk from radon and reduce deaths from the most common fatal cancer in Europe. Expand
Meat quality of Angus, Simmental, Charolais and Limousin steers compared at the same intramuscular fat content.
TLDR
Clear differences in meat quality were observed between breeds despite similar IMF contents, and Angus and Limousin beef was more tender on sensory assessment than Simmental beef, corresponding to differences found in shear force and myofibrillar fragmentation index measured at 48 h post mortem. Expand
Evidence for the inhibition of the terminal step of ruminal alpha-linolenic acid biohydrogenation by condensed tannins.
TLDR
Effects of condensed tannins (CT), either via extract or plant-bound, and saponin extract on ruminal biohydrogenation of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) were investigated in vitro, with favorable results from a human health point of view. Expand
Saponin rich tropical fruits affect fermentation and methanogenesis in faunated and defaunated rumen fluid
TLDR
This study demonstrated that supplementation with S. saponaria is effective against ruminal methanogenesis, but that this was not exclusively an effect of the associated depression in protozoal count. Expand
Supplementation of a tropical grass diet with forage legumes and Sapindus saponaria fruits: effects on in vitro ruminal nitrogen turnover and methanogenesis
TLDR
In two in vitro experiments with the RUSITEC-apparatus, Brachiaria dictyoneura was tested alone and with legumes at dietary proportions of 1/3, 2/ 3, or 3/3 of Arachis pintoi, Cratylia argentea, or Calliandra calothyrsus, and Sapindus saponaria fruits. Expand
