The article focuses on communication in biomonitoring studies. Is is suggested that exposure to chemicals in the environment has an adverse outcome on health and results in dieases. Therefore, there is need for studies designed to assess exposure to environmental contaminants. Guidelines for communicating the results and the affects to the participants are important. The article also presents that the information collected in these studies must be electronically stored for future studies.

    Urinary naphthols, 1- and 2-naphthol, recently have been suggested as route-specific biomarkers for exposure to airborne polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. For the proper application of urinary naphthols as biomarkers, we studied effects of lifestyle on urinary naphthols levels in 119 Japanese...

    Objectives: To investigate the validity of outdoor concentrations ofparticulate matter <10 mu m diameter (PM10) as a measure of exposure in time series studies, and to study the extent to which differences between personal and outdoor PM10, concentrations can be explained. Methods: Four to eight...

    Many people are affected by environmental pollution level. Many studies presents the harmful effects of common air pollution sources such as dust, toxic substances emitted by cars and industry, but an important pollution source remains: the noise. Generally, the noise effects are separated into...
