Investigating The Effects Of PM2.5 On Energy Metabolic Reprogramming

During the last two decades, air pollution has been regarded as one of the toughest challenges facing human beings. As the key indicator of air pollution, PM2.5 received great public concern. Exposure to PM2.5 could cause many adverse effects, such as allergies, diseases, or even death. Furthermore, it was reported that a 10 μg/m3 increment in PM2.5 was associated with a 1.04% increase in the risk of death. Because of the variation of composition and concentration of toxic substances adsorbed...

Investigating The Adverse Effects Of Chalk Dust Inhalation

Teaching with chalk is an ancient and economical method of teaching that is used in many areas of the world, especially in China. Chalk sticks and blackboard are the most common tools during chalk teaching. While writing and scraping on a blackboard, the chalk sticks release total suspended particulate (TSP), including coarse and fine chalk dust particles. Because ambient fine particulate matter may be introduced into the human respiratory system and reach the lung alveoli, they have the potential for...
