Dietetic practice: the past, present and future
Hwalla, N.; Koleilat, M. ( 2004 )

The history of dietetics can be traced as far back as the writings of Homer, Plato and Hippocrates in ancient Greece. Although diet and nutrition continued to be judged important for health, dietetics did not progress much till the 19th century with the advances in chemistry. Early research focused focuses on vitamin deficiency diseases while later workers proposed daily requirements for protein, fat and carbohydrates. Dietetics as a profession was given a boost during the Second World War when its importance was recognized by the military. Today, professional dietetic associations can be found on every continent, and registered dietitians are involved in health promotion and treatment, and work alongside physicians. The growing need for dietetics professionals is driven by a growing public interest in nutrition and the potential of functional foods to prevent a variety of diet-related conditions

Diethylhexyl phthalate / published under the joint sponsorship of the United Nations Environment Programme, the International Labour Organisation, and the World Health Organization
World Health Organization; International Programme on Chemical Safety ( 1992 )

Evaluates the risks to human health and the environment posed by the production, processing, use, and disposal of diethylhexyl phthalate (DEHP). DEHP is produced in large quantities for use as a resin-softening plasticizer, with major application in the production of polyvinyl chloride used in the construction and packaging industries and in components of medical devices, including tubes used in transfusions and dialysis. Findings from over 300 recent studies were critically assessed. The opening sections characterize the behaviour of DEHP in different environmental media and summarize data indicating concentrations detected in air, precipitation, water, sediment, soil, biota, food, and the workplace environment. These studies show that, while DEHP is rapidly photodegraded in the atmosphere, aerobic biodegradation is slow, and anaerobic degradation is even slower. The report concludes that adverse effects on environmental organisms are likely in areas where water and sediment are highly contaminated. The most extensive section examines the results of numerous toxicological studies in laboratory animals and in vitro test systems. Significant findings include testicular atrophy and neoplastic effects on the liver in rats and mice. An evaluation of numerous studies on the mechanisms of hepatotoxicity concludes that the livers of rats and mice are exquisitely sensitive to DEHP and other peroxisome proliferators, while the livers of guinea-pigs, monkeys, and humans show minimal or no response. Determination of the effects of DEHP on human health was severely limited by the paucity of available data. Case reports of adverse effects linked to haemodialysis and artificial ventilation underscore the need to reduce exposure arising from the use of plastic tubes containing DEHP in such clinical procedures as transfusion, haemodialysis, and artificial respiration

Dieting behaviours, obesity and predictors of dieting among female college students at Palestinian universities
Bayyari, W.D.; Henry, L.J.; Jones, C. ( 2013 )

The purpose of this study was to explore dieting practices of female Palestinian college students. Participants [n = 410] were selected by cluster-sampling from 4 Palestinian universities. A regression model investigated dieting using: body mass index [BMI]; body satisfaction; self-esteem; dress style; exercise; sociocultural factors; residence; strength of faith; perceived impact of weight on social interaction; and number of previous times dieting. Significant predictors of dieting were low body satisfaction, number of previous dieting times, perceived media pressure, regular exercising, BMI, and perceived impact of weight on social interaction. The model accounted for 45% of the variance in dieting. Body satisfaction was not significantly correlated with self-esteem or strength of faith, which indicates that [internalization of thinness] may be becoming evident among populations in certain developing countries, as in [Western] countries

Differential aspects of consultation-liaison psychiatry in a Saudi hospital. I: referral pattern and clinical indices
Al Hamad, A.M.; Al Sawaf, M.H.; Osman, A.A.; Ibrahim, I.S. ( 2006 )

Consultation-liaison psychiatry has emerged as an important sub-specialty in the general hospital setting during recent years as a result of psychiatric acute wards moving into these hospitals. This has inspired the need for better structured research to establish its relevance and effectiveness. We, therefore, carried out a prospective cohort study at King Fahad General Hospital. We report the interaction of sociodemographic, clinical and diagnostic factors, time lag of referral and diagnostic ability of referring physicians. A total of 206 patients were referred over a period of 6 months. Sensitivity and specificity of the diagnostic skills of the referring doctors were found to be generally poor, particularly for anxiety
