Polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins/dibenzofurans (PCDD/Fs) may cause adverse health effects. However, PCDD/F emissions from burning incense in temples have rarely been addressed. This study investigates PCDD/F emissions from burning incense in a temple. The mean total PCDD/F concentrations were 72.4-82.2 pg Nm(-3) at two indoor sites; their corresponding mean total PCDD/Fs I-TEQ concentrations (0.24-0.27 pg I-TEQ Nm(-3)) were approximately 11 times that at a background location. In air samples collected from burning incense, OCDFs accounted for approximately 90% of total PCDD/Fs at the two indoor sites and an outdoor site near the temple, while the major PCDD/Fs in incense ash were PCDDs...

In developing countries, Campylobacter jejuni causes diarrhea and dysentery, especially in children less than one year of age. Breast feeding protects against infectious diarrhea, with milk IgA antibody playing a determining role. Therefore, it has been proposed to increase the protective effect of human milk by vaccinating women of child-bearing age. To identify antigens which may induce protective breast-milk IgA, we analyzed 60 strains of C. jejuni isolated from asymptomatically- and symptomatically-infected breast-fed children less than 12 months of age...
