Climate change is today's greatest public health threat.(1) As the nation's leading voice in public health, the American Public Health Association (APHA) has demonstrated an enduring commitment to climate change as a health issue. As far back as the mid-1920s, AJPH reported on the health impacts of climate change.(2-4) Shaping the development of future organizational efforts, APHA members created the organization's first policy statement on climate change in 1995 (updated in 2007 and 2015).

In the present study, individual interviews with 10 people with Alzheimer's disease and their spousal carers were qualitatively analysed to describe how in each...

This study characterizes concentrations of polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) in floor and road dust from a manual e-waste dismantling facility and adjacent communities in Thailand. Levels of Σ22 PBDEs in floor dust from the facility varied between 1,200 and 43,000 ng g(-1), whereas those from adjacent communities were in the range 6.6-2,200 ng g(-1). Concentrations of Σ22 PBDEs (43,000 ng g(-1)) were highest in floor dust collected from the facility. Levels of Σ22 PBDEs and all congeners studied, ex...
