Climate Change, One Health and Mercury

Climate change is occurring on both regional and global scales. The use and global distribution of toxic metals is increasing and affecting environmental, animal and human health as a result of air,

An Assessment Model for Occupational Health and Safety Risk of Street Lighting Poles Fabrication

This study reveals that during fabrication, materials transporting-assembling-finishing have high exposures to risks, and risk of being exposed to sparks is the highest risk with score of 9.

Biodiversity and the Loss of Biodiversity Affecting Human Health

Investigation of Sensitivity of the Allium cepa Test as an Alert System to Evaluate the Genotoxic Potential of Soil Contaminated by Heavy Metals

The results indicate that the A. cepa plant test system was sensitive to investigate the genotoxicity of the soil samples and can be used as an alert in studies on soil contamination.

Contagious Progression and Distribution of Arsenic in India: A Key Towards Bioremediation

This review comprehensively summarizes current studies associated with arsenic exposure, environmental dispersal and its bioremediation through arsenic metabolizing bacteria covering recent developments, pathways, action mechanism and understanding arsenic metabolizers with the depiction of future prospects on arsenic biOREmediation from contaminated systems.

Assessing the impacts of agricultural intensification on biodiversity: a British perspective

The pressures of agricultural change may be reduced by minimizing loss of large habitats, minimizing permanent loss of agricultural land, maintaining habitat diversity in agricultural landscapes in order to provide ecosystem services, and minimizing pollution from nutrients and pesticides from the crops themselves.
