    Abstract : Ore-mining, metallurgy and other industrial activities represent the source of heavy metal and radionuclide contamination in terrestrial and aquatic environments. Physico-chemical processes are employed for heavy metal removal from industrial wastewater. READ MORE

  2. 2. Oxidative Damage in Fish Used as Biomarkers in Field and Laboratory Studies

    University dissertation from University of Gothenburg

    Author : Bethanie Carney Almroth; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; fish; oxidative stress; antioxidant enzymes; glutathione; protein carbonyls; lipid peroxidation; biomarkers; pollution; aging;

    Abstract : Many toxic xenobiotics entering into the aquatic environment exert their effects through redox cycling. Oxidative stress, incorporating both antioxidant defences as well as oxidative damage, is a common effect in organisms exposed to xenobiotics in their environment. READ MORE

  3. 3. Dietary Patterns Identification and Health Implications in the Swedish Population

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Erika Ax; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Dietary Pattern; Dietary Recommendations; Dietary Survey; Environmental Contaminants; Healthy Diet Indicator; Heatlhy dietary pattern; Low-Carbohydrate; Mediterranean diet; Nutritional Biomarkers; Obesity; Overweight; Principal Component Analysis; Prostate Cancer; Sweden; Traditional dietary pattern; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science; Nutrition; Nutrition;

    Abstract : We eat foods not nutrients. What is more, we eat them in combinations. Consequently, capturing our complex food habits is likely an advantage in nutrition research. The overall aim of this doctoral thesis was therefore to investigate dietary patterns in the Swedish population –nutrient intakes, nutritional biomarkers and health aspects. READ MORE
