The Paradigm of Occupational Diseases Observed in Education Professionals in Brazil | Chapter 09 | Emerging Research in Medical Sciences Vol. 3

The magisterium has always been considered by law as a painful activity, which causes physical or psychological wear and tear on the organism, due to the repetition of psychological movements, pressures and tensions that affect the worker emotionally. Decree 53.831 / 64 framed the role of teacher as painful. This article aims to discuss the main occupational diseases verified in teachers in Brazil and as specific objectives to describe how the workload of teachers can contribute to the development of occupational diseases and to verify in the literature, prevention and safety measures that have been used and published. The results show that occupational diseases in teachers are common in the teaching environment, where the mental and emotional ones are among the majority for this class, later the diseases of the locomotive apparatus, which demonstrate that working long hours without valorization or adequate remuneration can generate health damages.

Consensus Summit: Lipids and Cardiovascular Health in the Nigerian Population | Chapter 09 | Current Trends in Food Science Vol. 1

Aims: To issue a consensus statement on Lipids and Cardiovascular Health and the impact of their interrelationship in Nigerian Population. Study Design: Experts from a range of relevant disciplines, deliberated on different aspects of Lipids and Cardiovascular Health in the Nigerian Population at a Summit. Place and Duration of Study: The Summit was held in April 2016 at the Nigerian Institute of Medical Research. Methodology: Presentations were made on central themes after which expert participants split into four different groups to consider the questions relevant to different sub themes of the title. Consensus was arrived at, from presentations of groups at plenary. Conclusion: With the increase in the prevalence of NCDs, especially Cardiovascular Disease in Nigeria, and the documented evidence of deleterious effects of lipids, the expert panel called for an urgent need to advocate for the general public and health professionals to make heart-friendly

An Overview of Ultrasonic Technology and Its Applications in Food Processing, Preservation and Quality Control | Chapter 03 | Current Research in Science and Technology Vol. 3

Ultrasound is one of the emerging technologies that were developed to minimize processing, maximize quality and ensure the safety of food products. In recent years, ultrasound technology has been used as an alternative processing option to conventional thermal approaches. Although Ultrasonication methods have been used for years in research and diagnostics, major advances have been made in the last decade. The applications for which high power ultrasound can be used range from existing processes that are enhanced by the retrofitting of high power ultrasonic technology, to the development of processes up to now not possible with conventional energy sources. The present paper reviews the generation, principle mechanism, properties, process parameters, applications, merits and demerits and future trends of the ultrasound technology in the food processing.
