Mental Distress and Its Contributing Factors Among Young People During the First Wave of COVID-19: A Belgian Survey Study

the first wave of COVID-19 in March, and 16–25-year-olds were selected as a subsample. Mental distress was assessed using the 12-item General Health Questionnaire (GHQ-12), and a threshold of ≥4 was ...

Safety assessment of titanium dioxide (E171) as a food additive.

uncertainty as to whether a threshold mode of action could be assumed. In addition, a cut-off value for TiO particle size with respect to genotoxicity could not be identified. No appropriately designed study ...

Position paper on the use of an “estimated acceptable concentration” (EAC) as basis for a control policy's action level for carcinogens unintentionally present in food

substantiated by a quick scoping review of scientific literature and reports. Key findings and conclusions Case-dependent, whether a threshold effect level can be defined or not, the EAC is calculated based on ...

Urinary sodium and iodine concentrations among Belgian adults: results from the first national Health Examination Survey.

height and weight. RESULTS: Median urinary iodine concentration (UIC) among adults (n = 1092) was 93.6 µg/L, indicating mild iodine deficiency according to WHO thresholds. Median UIC among participants who ...

Heat related mortality in the two largest Belgian urban areas: A time series analysis

until 2011 taking into account the effect of air pollution. Methods The threshold in temperature above which mortality increases was determined using segmented regressions for both urban areas. The ...

Spatio-temporal monitoring and modelling of birch pollen levels in Belgium

 ~ 50%. The slopes of the linear correlation increased on average with ~ 60%. Finally, SILAM is able to capture the threshold of 80 pollen grains m−3 exposure from the observations. Health Topics:  ...

Analysis of mineral oil in food: An analytical challenge

overview of the results of the market survey will be presented. Afterwards, the results are compared to the action thresholds as proposed by the Scientific Committee of the Federal Agency for the Safety of ...

Physicochemical characterisation of several types of the E171 food additive

thresholding and constituent particle detection. The large majority of constituent particles, confirmed to be TiO2 by energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX), were reliably detected and measured by the ...
