Global Noncommunicale Diseases- A global threat

Mi茅rcoles, 29 de septiembre de 2010 Yamil Diab Forero Sin comentarios

As the authors write in this article of NEJM : “Like climate change, the relentless worldwide spread of communicable diseases offers an opportunity for low, middle and high income countries to join forces in addressing a major global challenge that threatens health and economies alike. Six factors have been identified as global risk factors for death: High blood pressure, Tobacco use, high blood glucose levels, physical inactivity, overweight and high cholesterol levels” . I invite to all of you to read this interesting article on how to address these challenges on a international, proactive and global way.

Australia High Court “Aerotoxic Syndrome”: A historical decision

Viernes, 17 de septiembre de 2010 admin Sin comentarios

The problem of aircraft cabin air becoming contaminated by synthetic jet engine oils containing organophosphates (such as Tricresyl Phosphate, TCP) and a wide range of chemicals has been ongoing since the 1950s.聽 On 3 September 2010 a former Australian flight attendant became the first person in the world to win a civil case resulting from breathing oil smoke and fumes in the aircraft cabin on a BAe 146 in Australia in 1992. The Global Cabin Air Quality Executive calls for all future aircraft to be designed using bleed free technology such as that used by the Boeing 787, for all current aircraft to be fitted with suitable filters and detection systems, and for airlines to service their fleets with less toxic oils. This court verdict supports that 60 years of unfiltered bleed air is no longer acceptable.
