Smoking May Damage Immunity of Skin Cancer Patients And Limit Their Survival Chances: Study



Smoking may damage the immune response against melanoma and limit patients’ survival chances, according to a new study.

Melanoma patients with a history of smoking cigarettes are 40 per cent less likely to survive their skin cancer than people who have never smoked within a decade after their diagnosis, according to the study, published in the journal Cancer Research.

Other researchers have reported that smoking have adverse effects on the immune system, but it is not yet known which chemicals are responsible for this.

“The immune system is like an orchestra, with multiple pieces. This research suggests that smoking might disrupt how it works together in tune, allowing the musicians to continue playing but possibly in a more disorganised way,” said lead researcher Julia Newton-Bishop, Professor at the University of Leeds.

Smoking could directly affect how smokers’ bodies deal with the melanoma cancer cells, said the researchers.

“Overall, these results show that smoking could limit the chances of melanoma patients’ survival so it’s especially important that they are given all the support possible to give up smoking for good,” said Julie Sharp, head at Cancer Research UK in Britain.

This is the reason why people should try to give up smoking, particularly those who have been diagnosed with malignant melanoma, suggested the researchers.

For the study, the team included more than 700 melanoma patients.

Household Toxins Like SVOCs Can Lead to Multiple Disorders in Children, Finds New Study



Children living in homes that have toxic chemicals on the floors and furniture are exposed to higher concentrations of harmful semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOCs) in their blood or urine than those without these materials, finds a new study.

SVOCs, which are a subgroup within the volatile organic compounds (VOCs), have been associated with various diseases in children. VOCs are a type of indoor air pollutants.

The study found that children from homes with vinyl flooring had benzyl butyl phthalate metabolite concentrations in urine that were 15 times higher than those in children living with no vinyl flooring.

Further, children living in homes where the sofa contained flame-retardant polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) in its foam had a six-fold higher concentration of PBDEs in their blood serum.

Exposure to PBDEs has been linked to neurodevelopmental delays, obesity, endocrine and thyroid disruption, cancer and other diseases, according to the study presented at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in the US.

Furthermore, benzyl butyl phthalate has been linked to respiratory disorders, skin irritations, multiple myeolma and reproductive disorders.

“SVOCs are widely used in electronics, furniture and building materials and can be detected in nearly all indoor environments,” said Heather Stapleton, an environmental chemist from Duke University in the US.

“Human exposure to them is widespread, particularly among young children who spend most of their time indoors and have greater exposure to chemicals found in household dust,” said Stapleton.

For the study, the researchers conducted in-home exposures to SVOCs among 203 children from 190 families.

High-tide Flooding Can Adversely Affect Coastal Communities’ Economy And Worsens Due to Sea Level Rise



People living in coastal areas are highly affected by economic losses caused by frequent flooding and the impact worsens when the sea level rises, making them more frequent, says a new study.

Researchers from Stanford University in the US analysed the economic impact of frequent high-tide flooding in Annapolis, a coastal city in the US, and found that it suffered a loss of 3,000 visits in 2017 due to high-tide flooding, which equates to a loss of somewhere between $86,000 and $172,000 in revenue.

“Small businesses in downtown Annapolis rely on visitors. By measuring the extent of the impact of flooding, we can understand the business case — how rise in sea levels is already impacting businesses’ experiences and profits,” said Samanthe Belanger, co-author of the study.

High-tide flooding, sometimes called nuisance flooding or sunny-day flooding, happens when ocean waters rise above the levels that coastal infrastructure was designed for. In case of high-tide flooding, water sweeps in, filling streets and parking lots and preventing normal pedestrian and vehicle traffic.

The average number of high-tide flooding days across 27 locations in the US went up from 2.1 days per year in the late 1950s to 11.8 days per year during 2006-2010.

By 2035, about 170 coastal communities are projected to experience 26 high-tide flooding days a year.

“As global temperatures and sea levels rise, high-tide flooding is becoming more frequent. For coastal businesses, that means more days when customers might not be able to get to their stores. Even though most floods only last for a few hours, their impacts can add up,” said Miyuki Hino, a graduate student at the varsity.

Annapolis, home to the US Naval Academy, tops the list of cities experiencing a rise in high-tide flooding. In the early 1960s, Annapolis had about four high-tide flooding days a year.

In 2017, the loss to City Dock businesses due to flooding was less than 2 per cent of annual visitors, but that could get a lot worse as sea levels continue to rise, the researchers warned. City Dock is the historic heart of Annapolis.

Furthermore, if the sea level increases by three more inches, visits to the City Dock would be reduced by about 4 per cent, projected the study, published in the journal Science Advances.

In addition, with 12 inches of sea level rise, visits would be reduced by about 24 per cent, a figure that could mean hundreds of thousands in lost revenue, as per the researchers.

The US Global Change Research Programme Climate Science special report has sea level rise projections relative to the year 2000 ranging between 0.5 and 1.2 feet by 2050.

Early Onset Drinking And Intoxication Lead to Heavy Drinking And Alcohol Dependence Among People: Study



Early onset of drinking and intoxication may lead to heavy drinking and alcohol dependence among people, warn researchers from the Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation in the US.

Researchers concluded this in a study on the correlation between early age (less than 15 years) and contexts of first intoxication such as one’s own home, friends’ homes or outdoor settings, and the problems that arise in these contexts.

For their research, the team studied 405 adolescent (aged 15-18 years) drinkers.

According to the findings, published in the journal Substance Use & Misuse, about one-third of adolescent drinkers experienced their first intoxication by the age of 15, about one-third experienced it after 15, and about one-third had consumed alcohol but never to the stage of intoxication.

In addition, drinkers reported drinking most frequently at homes, followed by outdoor settings, and then in restaurants, bars or nightclubs.

The early age of first intoxication was found to be strongly linked to drinking in outdoor settings, but not to drinking at home.

The results of the study emphasise importance of contexts in early alcohol initiation and the resulting problems to inform development of preventive interventions specific to contexts, said Lipperman-Kreda, a researcher from the varsity.

To prevent or delay early onset of drinking, more should be known about the modifiable circumstances that enable these behaviours, the study suggested.
