The methodology in this paper deals with model mis-specification bias as well as bias from endogenous regressors. The authors provide estimates of the inequality-pollution relationship for every country-year observation. They find sustainable environmental policies will lower pollution and inequality in certain country groups. The results from their studies provide a cross-country information portal for sustainable environmental policies.

Water pollution is the most serious problem threatening global water resources. The release of both natural and anthropogenic factors in the aquatic environment is affecting the quality of water bodies, with Contaminants of Emerging Concern (CECs) being one of the major issues. In recent years, the availability of robust and sensitive analytical methods has allowed the detection and identification of a wide variety of pollutants.

Providing affordable access to enough healthy and safe food for an ever-more-affluent and growing world population has become more challenging in the face of climate change, rising income inequality and a more uncertain global trade environment. Agriculture is expected to contribute more, but is under pressure in both high-income and developing countries to do so more sustainably and inclusively. This paper reviews the roles of food policy in this changing setting.

This chapter focuses on the adverse effects of air pollution on the developing brain and discusses the evidence from human and animal studies suggesting that exposure to elevated air pollution during pre- and early postnatal development is associated with a number of behavioral and biochemical adverse effects.

Increasing recognition within the medical literature and by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education has been attributed to the need for enhanced resident education on concepts related to public health and health equity. Despite increasing documentation of pervasive inequalities within the scope of radiology, dedicated curricula designed to improve cultural competency and understanding of healthcare disparities among radiology trainees remains sparse.

Emerging evidence indicates that postmenopausal women with periodontitis have aggravated inflammation and prolonged course, with the detailed mechanisms largely unknown. This study aimed to determine the pathogenic role of aberrant extracellular vesicles due to imbalanced-polarized macrophages and explore the therapeutic approach for periodontitis in postmenopausal individuals. Periodontitis in ovariectomized (OVX) mouse models were established to simulate the aggravated periodontitis in postmenopausal women.
