Background & aims: Recent experimental models and epidemiological studies suggest that specific environmental contaminants (ECs) contribute to the initiation and pathology of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). However, the underlying mechanisms linking EC exposure with NAFLD remain poorly understood and there is no data on their impact on the human liver metabolome. Herein, we hypothesized that exposure to ECs, particularly perfluorinated alkyl substances (PFAS), impacts liver metabolism, specifically bile acid metabolism.

This study supports SDGs 3 and 6 by investigating a low-cost behavioural intervention designed to increase latrine use and safe disposal of child faeces in India. The study found the intervention modestly increased latrine use and markedly increased safe disposal of child faeces in the short term, but was unlikely to reduce exposure to pathogens to a level necessary to achieve health gains.
This paper presents a water resilience assessment framework that includes a set of resilience indicators that will guide in building urban water resilience.
This paper—as a case study— presents a systematic study of gender bias in machine translation with Google Translate.
This study investigates how the sources of carbon emissions affect life expectancy. The study sample includes 68 developing and emerging economies for the period 1990-2017. Disaggregated analysis is performed on: (1) emissions sources; (2) income groups. A negative nexus between life expectancy and CO2 emissions exists for emerging ones. However, CO2 emissions seem to improve the life expectancy for developing countries.
