Investigating the Capability of Dandelion Greens to Remediate Soils Contaminated with Cadmium

This study aimed to explore the possibility of removing cadmium, a toxic heavy metal, from soil using Dandelion greens. To accomplish this, a greenhouse experiment was conducted with six treatments including a control, and varying concentrations of cadmium in the soil. After the plants were harvested, the concentration of cadmium was measured in the plant […]

Occupational exposure limits for 1, 3-butadiene based on carcinogenic effects: a comparison of the threshold and non-threshold approaches

1, 3-Butadiene (BD) is primarily used for the production of synthetic rubbers and polymers, which are found in many industrial and consumer products. BD is suspected to be both carcinogenic and genotoxic to humans. This study aims to compare occupational exposure limits (OELs) based on BD’s carcinogenic effects using threshold and non-threshold methods in industrial […]
