The purpose of this paper is to examine the potential effects of livestock odors on the health and well-being of neighbors. Complaints of odor nuisance have become more frequent in communities surrounding areas with high concentrations of livestock. This increase in complaints from livestock odors parallels increased complaints of odor in general, including ammonia, diesel exhaust, beauty products, cleaners, and paints. Persons who report symptoms from odors generally find problems with many… Expand
Science of odor as a potential health issue.
TLDR
Examples of such "environmentally superior technologies" (EST) developed under the initiative sponsored through agreements between the Attorney General of North Carolina and Smithfield Foods and Premium Standard Farms are described. Expand
Identification of Odor Causing Compounds in a Commercial Dairy Farm
The odorous air emissions from confined animal feeding operations (CAFOs), such as swine, poultry and dairy farms, are increasingly raising community complaints. Odorous emissions can result inExpand
Potential Health Effects of Odor from Animal Operations, Wastewater Treatment, and Recycling of Byproducts
TLDR
This report summarizes the conclusions from the Workshop regarding the potential mechanisms responsible for health symptoms from ambient odors and methods for validation of health symptoms, presence of odor, and efficacy of odor management techniques are described. Expand
The relation between modeled odor exposure from livestock farming and odor annoyance among neighboring residents

TLDR
A statistically significant and positive relation between modeled odor exposure and reported odor annoyance from livestock farming is found and age, asthma, education and perceived air pollution in the environment are all related to odor annoyance, although they hardly affect the relation. Expand
Odour influence on well-being and health with specific focus on animal production emissions.

TLDR
A review of the literature on olfaction and reactions to odours was carried out with the aim of reaching an understanding of their influence on well-being and health, and to suggest possible improvements in odour environment. Expand
An Evaluation of Alternative Approaches to Reduce Odors from Intensive Swine Operations - Interim Report
Introduction The increasing size of swine production facilities, coupled with human housing growth in rural farming areas, has resulted in many odor complaints. Odor has been shown to be a veryExpand
ASSESSMENT OF THE ECONOMIC AND ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS OF ODOR EMISSION FROM MECHANICALLY VENTILATED LIVESTOCK BUILDING IN IBADAN OYO STATE NIGERIA
Odors from livestock facilities and waste products still remain a serious environmental problem confronting both the producers and the general public in Nigeria. This study was conducted with the aimExpand
The Odor Emissions from Confined Animal Feeding Operations
Over the years, the agricultural community and large-scale livestock productions have changed significantly. The trends include an overall reduction in the number of farms, but an increase inExpand
Odor-associated health complaints: competing explanatory models.
TLDR
The approach to interpretation advocated in this review involves understanding the toxicology of the agent(s) involved and assessing exposure parameters, which involve attitudinal and/or behavioral responses to odors. Expand
Biochemical identification and biological origin of key odor components in livestock waste.
TLDR
Multiple combinations of nutritional management, housing systems, treatment options as well as storage and disposal of animal wastes will be required to reduce environmental pollution and provide for long-term sustainable growth. Expand

TLDR
Any differential regulatory response to environmental odor pollution, which is based upon the distinction between community "annoyance reactions" and "health effects," is a matter of legal--not scientific--interpretation. Expand
Exposure of humans to a volatile organic mixture. II. Sensory.
TLDR
Results indicate that irritation intensity and other symptoms are not related in any simple way to odor intensity, which suggests that the symptoms may not be a psychosomatic response to the detection of an aversive odor, and subthreshold levels of VOCs may interact additively or hyperadditively and stimulate trigeminal nerve receptors. Expand
Perceived odor, irritation, and health symptoms following short-term exposure to acetone.
TLDR
For both groups, the most significant factors mediating reported irritancy and health symptoms from acetone were the perceived intensity of its odor and an individual's bias to report irritation from PEA. Expand
The effect of environmental odors emanating from commercial swine operations on the mood of nearby residents
TLDR
Both innate physiological responses and learned responses may play a role in the impairment of mood found in the people living near the intensive swine operations. Expand
Sensory irritation. Relation to indoor air pollution.
TLDR
All mucosae of the body possess chemical sensitivity provided by the CCS, and the possible role of VOCs in the creation of irritation is asked, and whether subthreshold levels add up or even amplify each other to produce noticeable irritation. Expand
Exposure of humans to a volatile organic mixture. III. Inflammatory response.
TLDR
Because irritations of the nose and throat are symptoms often associated with the upper respiratory tract and may result from an inflammatory response in the upper airways, nasal lavage was used to monitor neutrophil (PMN) influx into the nasal passages following exposure to VOCs. Expand

Efficacy of volatile organic compounds in evoking nasal pungency and odor.
TLDR
The outcome for pungency implies an important role for a physical, rather than chemical, interaction with nasal mucosa, and with respect to all nonreactive chemicals studied so far, threshold nasal pungencies is achieved at a fairly constant percentage of vapor saturation, irrespective of molecular size or chemical functional group.

TLDR
The possibility that cognitive factors may be modulating the overall sensory perception of odor exposure for some individual who exhibit extreme sensitivity to odors and in situations where adaptation to environmental odors is expected but does not occur is raised. Expand
