Blood lead levels in the adult population living in France the French Nutrition and Health Survey (ENNS 2006-2007).
TLDR
The distribution of blood lead levels in France was quite similar to that observed in other European countries, and for the first time a survey provides national estimates of BLL for the adult population in France. Expand
Use of paracetamol for suicide and non-fatal poisoning in the UK and France: are restrictions on availability justified?
TLDR
Trends towards greater availability of paracetamol are paralleled by increases in its use for both non-fatal overdose and suicide, which suggests that restrictions in the quantity of par acetamol available as a single purchase in the UK may reduce suicide and liver failure related to paracetmol. Expand
Dysgeusia following consumption of pine nuts: More than 3000 cases in France
TLDR
The delayed onset and persistence of dysgeusia suggest that the toxin may act via an unknown toxic mechanism on the receptor, and the aetiological agent could be an unidentified toxin present in some varieties of non-edible pine nuts. Expand
Consequences of occupational asthma on employment and financial status: a follow-up study.
TLDR
The French compensation system for occupational asthma should be revised, as the criteria currently used to determine compensation for this disease largely underestimate the social and occupational damages. Expand
Acute selenium poisoning.
TLDR
Serial measurements of plasma selenium concentrations were performed and the first plasma level was obtained 3 h after ingestion and was the highest (931 micrograms/L); plasma concentrations subsequently decreased with a half-life of 17.5 h. Expand
Prognosis and treatment of paraquat poisoning: a review of 28 cases.
TLDR
The 11 survivals are only linked to the circumstances of the poisonings (route of administration, ingested amount, delay between ingestion and the last meal, etc.), and the different treatments did not modify the outcome. Expand
Glutathione transferase activity and formation of macromolecular adducts in two cases of acute methyl bromide poisoning.
TLDR
A different mechanism for methyl bromide neurotoxicity is suggested which could be related to the transformation of methylglutathione into toxic metabolites such as methanethiol and formaldehyde and N-acetylcysteine treatment could have a toxifying rather than a detoxifying effect. Expand
Serum levels of organochlorine pesticides in the French adult population: the French National Nutrition and Health Study (ENNS), 2006-2007.
TLDR
For the first time in France, a human biomonitoring study has shown that exposure to OC pesticides remains common in the population, and OC pesticide levels in serum in French adults were higher (except for DDT and DDE) than those observed in American, Canadian and German populations and generally lower than or in the same range as Those observed in other European countries.

Healthy worker effect and changes in respiratory symptoms and lung function in hairdressing apprentices
TLDR
Although a healthy worker effect can be suspected, results showed a significant deterioration of baseline values of lung function tests in the hairdressing apprentice group, however, no clear link was shown between change in lung function Tests and specific parameters of occupational activities. Expand
Urinary arsenic levels in the French adult population: the French National Nutrition and Health Study, 2006-2007.
TLDR
This study provides the first reference value for arsenic in a representative sample of the French population not particularly exposed to high levels of arsenic (10 μg/g of creatinine) and shows that urinary arsenic concentrations in the French adult population were relatively low compared with foreign data.
