Aging in today's environment by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

2 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report examines the relationships between aging and exposure to environmental agents (including natural and man-made agents, as well as life-style factors). Several relationships must be considered--the impact of intermittent or lifelong exposure to environmental agents on the rate of aging, the impact of lifelong exposure on health status when one reaches more advanced age, and the special response of the aged compared with that of the young when exposed to environmental agents
Review of the U.S. Navy's exposure standard for manufactured vitreous fibers by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Manufactured vitreous fibers (MVF), also known as synthetic vitreous fibers, are generally considered to be less hazardous than asbestos to human health. They are used in a variety of thermal- and acoustical-insulation applications, frequently as an asbestos substitute or as a filtration medium. The Navy uses MVF in a number of shipboard and onshore applications. To protect Navy personnel from potentially harmful exposures to MVF, the U.S. Navy Environmental Health Center (NEHC) developed occupational exposure standards. In 1997, the National Research Council (NRC) was asked to conduct an independent review of the Navy's toxicological assessment of MVF and to evaluate the scientific validity of its exposure standard of 2 fibers per cubic centimeter of air (f/cm3). The Subcommittee on Manufactured Vitreous Fibers, a multidisciplinary group of experts, to determine whether all relevant toxicological and epidemiological data were appropriately considered in developing the exposure standard; and to examine the uncertainty, variability, and quality of data and the appropriateness of assumptions used in the derivation of the exposure standard. The subcommittee was also asked to identify deficiencies in the MVF database and, where appropriate, to make recommendations for future research and data development
Finding the path : issues of access to research resources : summary of a conferance held at the National Academy of Sciences, January 27-28, 1999 by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The National Academy of Sciences and the National Research Council held a meeting, "Finding the Path: Issues of Access to Research Resources", on January 27-28, 1999. As conference chair David Galas described it, the meeting was intended 'not to come to any sort of consensus or do an in-depth analysis of these issues, but rather to get the range of issues, as they exist today, on the table, to try to focus some of these issues, gather the opinion of the speakers, and be informed by the speakers about them, and then attempt to sharpen the focus by our discussion and, where it's possible, to interrelate the issues.' This summary of the conference has been divided into three chapters on material transfer agreements, on patents, and on data collection and informatics. These represent focal points to which are attached many important issues about the practices of stakeholders of research resources and the policies that shape their motivations
Guidelines for chemical warfare agents in military field drinking water by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

6 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents the subcommittee's evaluations of the Army's proposed standards. The report also presents the subcommittee's recommendations for preventing adverse health effects in military personnel exposed to CW agents in field drinking water and for improving the toxicity data base for these CW agents. It should be noted that the intent of this report was not to review the toxicity of the CW agents in detail but to determine the adequacy of the Army's proposed field drinking-water standards. For greater detail on the toxicity of the CW agents, the reader is referred to the reports of the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and the U.S. Army

Mammography and beyond : developing technologies for the early detection of breast cancer by I. Craig Henderson( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book reviews the dramatic expansion of breast cancer awareness and screening, examining the capabilities and limitations of current and emerging technologies for breast cancer detection and their effectiveness at actually reducing deaths. The committee discusses issues including national policy toward breast cancer detection, roles of public and private agencies, problems in determining the success of a technique, availability of detection methods to specific populations of women, women's experience during the detection process, cost-benefit analyses, and more

Biologic markers of air-pollution stress and damage in forests by National Research Council (U.S.)( )

There is not much question that plants are sensitive to air pollution, nor is there doubt that air pollution is affecting forests and agriculture worldwide. In this book, specific criteria and evaluated approaches to diagnose the effects of air pollution on trees and forests are examined

Nitrate and nitrite in drinking water by Subcommittee on Nitrate and Nitrite in Drinking Water( )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Safe Drinking Water Act directs the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to establish national drinking-water standards for chemical and biological contaminants in public water supplies. The standards are to be set at concentrations at which no adverse effects on human health occur or are expected to occur from lifetime consumption, allowing a margin of safety; enforceable standards are standards that are feasible to achieve with the use of the best technology available. The standards are to be reviewed periodically to ensure continued protection of public health. Consistent with the requirement for periodic review, EPA asked the National Research Council to evaluate the current drinking-water maximum-contaminant-level goals (MCLGs) and maximum contaminant levels (MCLs) for nitrate and nitrite in public water supplies. The Subcommittee on Nitrate and Nitrite in Drinking Water, convened under National Research Council procedures, reviewed information on the occurrence and toxicity of nitrate and nitrite. The subcommittee evaluated this information in the context of the drinking-water standards for those substances and drew conclusions about the adequacy of the current standards to protect human health
