Health gain by salt reduction in europe: a modelling study
Boshuizen, Hendriek C; Geleijnse, Johanna M; Hendriksen, Marieke A H; van Raaij, Joop M A; Breda, Joao ( 2015-03-31 )

Excessive salt intake is associated with hypertension and cardiovascular diseases. Salt intake exceeds the World Health Organization population nutrition goal of 5 grams per day in the European region. We assessed the health impact of salt reduction in nine European countries (Finland, France, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Sweden and United Kingdom). Through literature research we obtained current salt intake and systolic blood pressure levels of the nine countries. The population health modeling tool DYNAMO-HIA including country-specific disease data was used to predict the changes in prevalence of ischemic heart disease and stroke for each country estimating the effect of salt reduction through its effect on blood pressure levels. A 30% salt reduction would reduce the prevalence of stroke by 6.4% in Finland to 13.5% in Poland. Ischemic heart disease would be decreased by 4.1% in Finland to 8.9% in Poland. When salt intake is reduced to the WHO population nutrient goal, it would reduce the prevalence of stroke from 10.1% in Finland to 23.1% in Poland. Ischemic heart disease would decrease by 6.6% in Finland to 15.5% in Poland. The number of postponed deaths would be 102,100 (0.9%) in France, and 191,300 (2.3%) in Poland. A reduction of salt intake to 5 grams per day is expected to substantially reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease and mortality in several European countries.

Health guidelines for the use of wastewater in agriculture and aquaculture : report of a WHO scientific group [meeting held in Geneva from 18 to 23 November 1987]
WHO Scientific Group on Health Aspects of Use of Treated Wastewater for Agriculture and Aquaculture; World Health Organization ( 1989 )

Issues revised technical and practical guidelines for the use of wastewater in agricultural irrigation, greenspace watering, and fish production in accordance with measures that protect the environment and safeguard against the transmission of disease. Representing the consensus reached by an international group of experts, the book introduces an approach to wastewater use that is at once less restrictive than previous guidelines and more realistic in terms of documented risks to health. Throughout, an effort is made to give water resource managers the evidence, quality indicators, and technical advice needed to exploit this valuable resource without endangering public health. The book opens with a brief review of the origins of previous guidelines, experiences with their use, and reasons why their quality standards are now regarded as too restrictive in terms of bacterial indicators and inadequate in terms of their failure to protect against the major risk of helminth infections. The most extensive part of the book focuses on health problems and measures for protection. Tables, diagrams and charts help document specific problems in terms of the characteristics and environmental behaviour of excreted pathogens, survival times for pathogens in soil and on crops, measures of health risks, including the epidemiological concept of actual or attributable risk, and factors influencing the degree to which a potential risk posed by a pathogen can become an actual risk of disease transmission. Against this background, the book issues detailed effluent microbiological quality guidelines for agriculture, gives tentative guidelines for aquaculture, and outlines a series of health protection measures

Health habits and behaviour of adolescent schoolchildren, Taif, Saudi Arabia
Abou Zeid, A.H.; Hifnawy, T.M.; Abdel Fattah, M. ( 2009 )

The aim of this study was to provide data regarding habits, behavior, problems and needs regarding health in adolescent children from a military community at Al Hada and Taif, Saudi Arabia which could guide school health programmes. We carried out a cross-sectional study on 284 preparatory and secondary school students. Prevalence of smoking was 21.3% among males and 4.9% among females. The rate of overweight was 20.8%. Driving without a license was reported by 68.8% of students, and 82.3% said they didn't fasten seat belts. However, we recorded a high rate of physical activity, 75.0% overall
