Int. J. Environ. Res. Public Health 2019, 16(5), 885; https://doi.org/10.3390/ijerph16050885 Abstract Poor sleep is associated with bad health outcomes, worse wellbeing and decreases in performance, productivity and safety at work. Police officers are exposed to several risk factors including extended work schedules, shift work, occupational stress, dangerous and traumatic events and can, as such, develop sleep problems. The...

5 July 2019 The results of the recent IARC Monographs evaluation of the carcinogenicity of night shift work have now been published in The Lancet Oncology. This summary article presents the conclusions of the IARC Monographs Meeting 124. Shift work involving circadian disruption was previously evaluated by the IARC Monographs, in 2007. In this updated evaluation, the Working Group chose the...

In most occasions, physiotherapists have involved multi-hour treatment sessions to different patients,...

https://doi.org/10.1080/14767058.2017.1390559 Abstract BACKGROUND: Neonatal incubators are important tools for sick newborns in the first few days of life. Nevertheless, their electric engine, often very close to the newborn’s body, emits electromagnetic fields (EMF) to which newborns are exposed. Aim of this paper is to review the available literature on EMF exposure in incubators, and the effects of...

Published Online:27 Feb 2019 https://doi.org/10.1096/fj.201801889R Abstract Working atypical schedules leads to temporal misalignments between a worker’s rest-activity cycle and their endogenous circadian system. Several studies have reported disturbed centrally controlled rhythms, but little is known on shift workers’ peripheral clocks. Here, we assessed central clock markers, urinary 6-sulfatoxymelatonin and salivary cortisol, and clock gene expression in...
