FRONTIERS IN PUBLIC HEALTH, v.9, article ID 663783, 14p, 2021
Introduction: Planetary health (PH) has emerged as a leading field for raising awareness, debating, and finding solutions for the health impacts of human-caused disruptions to Earth's natural systems. PH education addresses essential questions of how humanity inhabits Earth, and how humans affect...
Environmental air pollution: respiratory effects
JORNAL BRASILEIRO DE PNEUMOLOGIA, v.47, n.1, article ID e20200267, 13p, 2021
Environmental air pollution is a major risk factor for morbidity and mortality worldwide. Environmental air pollution has a direct impact on human health, being responsible for an increase in the incidence of and number of deaths due to cardiopulmonary, neoplastic, and metabolic diseases; it also...
Biomonitoring as a Nature-Based Solution to Assess Atmospheric Pollution and Impacts on Public Health
BULLETIN OF ENVIRONMENTAL CONTAMINATION AND TOXICOLOGY, v.107, n.1, Special Issue, p.29-36, 2021
The control of air pollution remains a challenge to the planning of cities and fossil fuel burning is the main cause of air degradation. Particulate matter (PM) is the contaminant commonly used as an indicator of pollution, but environmental agencies may face difficulties in operating surveillanc...
The burden of heat-related mortality attributable to recent human-induced climate change
NATURE CLIMATE CHANGE, v.11, n.6, p.492-+, 2021
Current and future climate change is expected to impact human health, both indirectly and directly, through increasing temperatures. Climate change has already had an impact and is responsible for 37% of warm-season heat-related deaths between 1991 and 2018, with increases in mortality observed g...
Development and Validation of an Index Based on EAT-Lancet Recommendations: The Planetary Health Diet Index
NUTRIENTS, v.13, n.5, article ID 1698, 15p, 2021
The EAT-Lancet Commission has proposed a planetary health diet. We propose the development of the Planetary Health Diet Index (PHDI) based on this proposed reference diet. We used baseline dietary data obtained through a 114-item FFQ from 14,779 participants of the Longitudinal Study on Adult Hea...
Impacts of home cooking methods and appliances on the GHG emissions of food
NATURE FOOD, v.1, n.12, 2020
Limited data on household cooking practices are an obstacle to estimating the contribution of home cooking to climate change. Based on a survey with over 700 respondents, this study estimates GHG emissions associated with different cooking methods and appliances in the UK, as well as strategies t...
Physiological mechanism and spatial distribution of increased alveolar dead-space in early ARDS: An experimental study
ACTA ANAESTHESIOLOGICA SCANDINAVICA, v.65, n.1, p.100-108, 2021
Background We aimed to investigate the physiological mechanism and spatial distribution of increased physiological dead-space, an early marker of ARDS mortality, in the initial stages of ARDS. We hypothesized that: increased dead-space results from the spatial redistribution of pulmonary perfusio...
