Levels of seven urinary phthalate metabolites in a human reference population.
It is strongly suggested that health-risk assessments for phthalate exposure in humans should include diethyl, dibutyl, and benzyl butyl phthalates. Expand
Economic gains resulting from the reduction in children's exposure to lead in the United States.
Economic benefits from projected improvements in worker productivity resulting from the reduction in children's exposure to lead in the United States since 1976 are quantified, estimating that each IQ point raises worker productivity 1.76-2.38%. Expand
Urban Sprawl and Public Health: Designing, Planning, and Building for Healthy Communities
In Urban Sprawl and Public Health, three of the nation's leading public health and urban planning experts explore an intriguing question: How does the physical environment in which we live affect ourExpand
Iodine nutrition in the United States. Trends and public health implications: iodine excretion data from National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys I and III (1971-1974 and 1988-1994)
The percentage of people excreting low concentrations of iodine (UI, <5 microg/dL) increased in all age groups, and the findings in 1988-1994 are not indicative of iodine deficiency in the overall U.S. population. Expand

The drive from my office to my suburban Atlanta home is all too familiar: it begins with a scary 7-lane thoroughfare; progresses to a jumble of connecting interstate highways packed with rush-hour traffic; and ends with clusters of new, low-density, single-family residential developments lacking public parks, playgrounds, libraries, nearby stores or cafes, sidewalks, bicycle trails, and public transit.

Exposure of the U.S. Population Aged 6 Years and Older to Cadmium: 1988–1994
Urine cadmium, expressed either as uncorrected or creatinine corrected, increased with age and with smoking, and was measured in urine specimens from 22,162 participants in the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES III 1988–1994). Expand
Trace metals in urine of United States residents: reference range concentrations.
We measured 13 metals in the urine of 496 United States residents to establish reference range concentrations using inductively coupled argon plasma mass spectrometry and Zeeman graphite furnaceExpand
Maternal pesticide exposure from multiple sources and selected congenital anomalies.
Investigating multiple sources of potential pesticide exposures without more specific information on chemical and level of exposure could not adequately discriminate whether the observed effects are valid, whether biased exposure reporting contributed to the observed elevated risks, or whether nonspecific measurement of exposure was responsible for many of the observed estimated risks not being elevated.

Contributions of built environment to childhood obesity.
Investigation of the association between various built environment attributes and childhood obesity found that neighborhood features such as walkability/bikeability, mixed land use, accessible destinations, and transit increase resident physical activity; also that access to high-caloric foods and convenience stores increases risk of overweight and obesity.

Dose-response assessment of airborne methyl isothiocyanate (MITC) following a metam sodium spill.
A tank car derailment in northern California in 1991 spilled metam sodium into the Sacramento River, and released its breakdown product, methyl isothiocyanate, into the air, and reference exposure levels for 1 hr were developed for MITC and compared to exposure concentrations. Expand
