  • Occurrence and Concentration of Heavy Metals in Garden Egg, Tomatoes,
           Cucumber and Watermelon from Two Major Markets in Edo State, Nigeria

    • Abstract: Publication year: 2020Source: Food and Public Health, Volume 10, Number 3Vincent Oyareme, Samuel E. Akpogheneta, B. N. Iloba, Friday OgidiagbaThis study was conducted to analyze the concentration of some heavy metals in selected vegetable fruits sold in Uselu and Ologbo markets. Using Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometry (AAS) the heavy metal concentration of Cd, Zn, Pb, Cu, Mn, Fe, Co, Cr Ni in Watermelon, Garden Egg, Tomato and Cucumber was studied. Trace element as Fe and Zn showed high concentration occurrence. The heavy metal concentration of Fe in Cucumber and watermelon from both markets was found to be 4.57 ± 0.32mg/kg and 4.39 ± 0.32 mg/kg respectively exceeding the permissible limit of food and agricultural organization and world health organization. Pb recorded the lowest value of 0.13 ± 0.09mg/kg in garden egg and 0. 28 ± 0.18mg/kg in watermelon, Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) showed a significant difference (P < 0.05) in the concentration of heavy metals (Fe, Pb, Cd, Mn, Cu, and Zn) in both stations. Fruits sample used for the study is contaminated with Fe and Zn which serves as a serious health concern.
       
  • Quarantine and Nutritional Status is the Essential Way to Reduce the Risk
           of Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19): A Survey of Iraqi Society

    • Abstract: Publication year: 2020Source: Food and Public Health, Volume 10, Number 2Mizher Hezam AL-ZuaidyInfections with coronavirus have been the most significant global threat in the twenty-one century. Over 200 countries with strictly two million cases exceeded the numbers of coronavirus cases of 2019. In the absence of medication for this infection, alternative methods for managing the disease's spread are desperately needed. 'Quarantine' is one of the oldest and the most common tools for controlling outbreaks of infectious diseases. The tools now available are isolation and quarantine, social distancing, and containment of the population. Quarantine may be enforced at the level of individuals or groups, and typically includes a restriction at home or facility. This study aims to examine the quarantine perception of Iraqi society, adherence to the Ministry of Health guidelines, and knowledge of strengthening the immune system by consuming certain nutrients and supplements to avoid coronavirus infection.
       
  • Examining Founding Dates, Number of Vendors, and Good Type Offerings by
           Food Desert Status. Analysis of 561 US Farmers’ Markets in Nine US
           States

    • Abstract: Publication year: 2020Source: Food and Public Health, Volume 10, Number 2Justin SchuppFarmers' markets have been suggested as a means to improve food access in food deserts. Though shown to occur and celebrated when they do, little is known about how often farmers markets locate in food deserts, what they look like, and how they compare to those in non-food deserts. This study explored the scope and size of markets by examining the number of vendors and types of goods available across 561 farmers' markets within food deserts in nine US States. Results suggest that two trends. First, markets within food deserts are statistically similar to those located in non-food deserts in relation types of goods for sale and the number of vendors. Second, though similar, markets are unequally distributed within food deserts in relation to race/ethnicity and resource distribution. Collectively these results show that farmers' markets are prevalent in food deserts while also highlighting areas for further improvement.
       
  • Comparing the Prevalence of Maternal HIV in Resource Poor and Rich
           Settings

    • Abstract: Publication year: 2020Source: Food and Public Health, Volume 10, Number 2S. Fiatal, J. Y. BagayangSeveral studies indicate that HIV-infected women continue to have children. The main aim of this study is to determine the trend in HIV transmission at subsequent pregnancies, the factors responsible for the unequal prevalence of maternal HIV in both resource-rich and resource-poor settings and the 2016-2021 HIV reduction strategies proposed by WHO and the financial backing of these strategies. From the literatures reviewed, one of the results showed pregnant women who were enrolled in single dose nevirapine-base Prevention of Mother-to-Child Transmission of HIV (PMTCT) programme and the period they observed exclusive breastfeeding. At the subsequent pregnancy, HIV-infected children had a similar duration of exclusive breastfeeding periods (4.2 months [SD 2.6] versus 6.2 months [SD 3.3] for uninfected children, OR 0.76 [0.57–1.02]). At the initial pregnancy 37.5% of mothers did not receive single dose nevirapine transmitted versus 36.8% of those who did receive nevirapine (OR 1.12 [0.23–5.34]). For the subsequent pregnancy, the percentages were 22.2 and 10.2, respectively (OR 2.51 [0.43–13.37]). This result, statistically demonstrate no significance/correlation in the single dose nevirapine-base HIV PMTCT programme and the period of exclusive breastfeeding in averting vertical transmission in a resource-poor setting even with the advent of antiretroviral therapy and advancement in technology.
       
  • Application of Supercritical Fluids in the Conservation of Bioactive
           Compounds: A Review

    • Abstract: Publication year: 2020Source: Food and Public Health, Volume 10, Number 1Adela C. Martinez, M. Angela A. MeirelesThe precipitation from supercritical antisolvents (SASs) of natural compounds solutions has become an excellent alternative to improve the solubility and availability of poorly water-soluble compounds. In this technique, CO2 is used as a supercritical fluid that marks the processing as a green technology and is ideal for use in the food industry due to its nontoxicity, economy and easy separation of solutes. This article reviews the application of the SAS technique in the food industry and highlights the influential factors in the generation of micro- and nanoparticles.
       
  • Hyperspectral Imaging of a Single Bacterial Cell

    • Abstract: Publication year: 2020Source: Food and Public Health, Volume 10, Number 1Rebecca D. Riggs, I-Hsuan Chen, Oleg Pustovyy, Bertram Zinner, Iryna Sorokulova, Vitaly VodyanoyCharacterization and discrimination of microorganisms by hyperspectral analysis is a promising alternative to conventional techniques in clinical, food, and environmental microbiology to be used as a rapid, non-destructive tool. In this work, we used the CytoViva hyperspectral imaging system to elicit the individual hyperspectral profiles produced by three food-borne pathogens, Salmonella, Escherichia coli, and Listeria at 18, 21, and 24 hours of growth. The distinctive feature of our hyperspectral system is that it employs a super-resolution condenser that allows for the capture of high-resolution spectral data of a single bacterial cell. The microscopic system with hyperspectral capability produces uncomplicated single peak optical spectra of individual cells that can be analyzed by simple computerized methods in contrast to the conventional multi-cell hyperspectral methods that require spectral convolution and principal component analysis. The super-resolution hyperspectral imaging created sharp spectral profiles based upon the unique surface property of each microbial cell. All bacteria were cultured, pelleted, washed, transferred to a poly-l-lysine coated slide, and cover-slipped to obtain the spectral profiles of live, metabolically active bacterial cells. The single-peak bacterial spectra were analyzed by the non-statistical Local Maximum method and by the non-linear fitting of spectra to a particular statistical model. Gaussian, Lorentzian, Logistic, Inverse polynomial, Gumbel, and Gram-Charlier peak functions were applied to bacterial spectra in the range of 400 – 1000 nm. A one-way ANOVA was conducted to compare fitting parameters. With this technique, we were able to characterize and discriminate Salmonella, E. coli, and Listeria with a high level of confidence. This novel application of hyperspectral imaging has the potential to be used as a point-of-care testing and safety scanning at all points of food production, including growing, harvesting, preparation, transportation, distribution, and storage.
       
  • Factors Associated with Utilization of Postpartum Care Services in
           Luanshya District

    • Abstract: Publication year: 2020Source: Food and Public Health, Volume 10, Number 1Mwangala Simataa, Alfred MakakaniUtilization of postpartum services is a major concern worldwide due to the great impact it has on infant and maternal mortality. Postpartum is defined as the first six weeks (42 days) following delivery of an infant. Care during this time is for the health and survival of the mother and the new born. Current estimation of Luanshya postpartum coverage of first postpartum care is 15% which is far below the recommended 80% by WHO. This study was therefore aimed at determining the factors associated with utilization of postpartum care services in Luanshya District. An analytical cross-sectional study was conducted on 187 mothers taking the children to the clinic aged between seven weeks to three months. Data was collected using questionnaires having both closed and open-ended questions. Stata 11 was used for statistical analysis of quantitative data. Qualitative data was explored for emerging themes and the frequency of themes were quantified. Chi-square was used to determine association of the variables. Logistic Regression analysis was used to ascertain which variables significantly affected the dependent variable. The findings from this study revealed that postpartum attendance was very low and stood at 27.8%. The major factors associated with low utilization of postpartum services were: postponement of sixth day postpartum care for Bacillus Calmette Guerin (BCG) (46%), feeling ill after delivery 29.4% and tradition 62.8%. This study demonstrated that there are gaps in the utilization of postpartum care services. Capacity and accessibility of health systems as well as cultural and religious practices are areas that affect postpartum care and hence should be worked on especially at community level. Such programs should include male involvement, influential family members such as grandmothers as well as traditional and religious leaders. Newborn babies should be vaccinated with BCG vaccine at birth so that the postpartum care appointments should be specifically for postpartum care.
       
  • Comparison of Dietary Diversity among Women-Child Pairs from Households
           Participated in Integrated Agricultural Interventions: A Cross Sectional
           Study

    • Abstract: Publication year: 2020Source: Food and Public Health, Volume 10, Number 1Mengistu Fiseha Mekonnen, Derese Tamiru Desta, Zemenu Kerie TerefeImproving nutrition requires many efforts through nutrition sensitive activities. Series of inter linked intervention activities in the Ethiopian humid tropics field sites has been conducted in the Western Oromia Region, Ethiopia. This study was conducted to determine the contribution of integrated agricultural farm interventions for dietary diversity of women and children. We employed comparative cross sectional study design among the women child pair participating and not participating in the integrated agricultural interventions in Diga and Jeldu districts of Western Oromia. A total of 345 mother child pairs were included for this study. SPSS version 20 software was used for data analyses. Minimum Dietary Diversity for Women and Child were computed and tested by Chi-square and Independent Sample t-test to check the differences among the group. The majorities of mothers were married and protestant religion followers. We found that mean dietary diversity was less than the recommended intake among mother child pairs. However, the percentages of recommended minimum dietary diversity consumption across the groups of mother-child pairs were found to be different. The dietary diversity score was higher among those mother child pair participated in the integrated agricultural farming interventions. Legumes, Vitamin A rich and other Fruits & Vegetables, and Eggs consumption were higher among the children from participated in the integrated farming intervention.Considering the findings of the current study, holistic agricultural interventions aiming at improving dietary diversity of the vulnerable groups in the community has to be strengthened.
       
  • Socioeconomic and Demographic Differences in Food Group Intakes of
           Adolescents in Urban Benin

    • Abstract: Publication year: 2019Source: Food and Public Health, Volume 9, Number 5Eunice Nago, Saturnin Houndji, Sherifath Mama ChabiAdolescence constitutes a good period to shape lifelong healthy eating habits to prevent excess weight and related chronic diseases. This study identified socioeconomic and demographic factors associated with the consumption of healthy and potentially harmful food groups among adolescents in urban Benin, as a contribution for the development of diet promotion interventions. Data were collected from 408 participants aged 13 to 19 years in 12 secondary schools in Cotonou, the biggest city in Benin. Food intake was assessed by two 24-hour dietary recalls and demographic and socioeconomic characteristics, using a questionnaire. Predictors of the consumption of healthy and potentially unhealthy food groups were identified using multilevel regression analysis. Adolescents from wealthier households ate 28g more meat and 122g more sweet foods than those from poor households. Females ate 23g more meat than males, and younger adolescents consumed 144g more sweet foods than the older. It was concluded that in urban Benin, the diet of younger female adolescents from wealthier households is more indicative of changes towards a western diet associated with the risk of obesity and related chronic diseases. This subgroup needs be targeted in priority during promotional activities to improve adolescents’ diet.
       
  • Heterogeneous Catalysts for Biodiesel Production: A Review

    • Abstract: Publication year: 2019Source: Food and Public Health, Volume 9, Number 4Ramon Sousa Barros Ferreira, Rafaela Menezes dos Passos, Klicia Araujo Sampaio, Eduardo Augusto Caldas BatistaBiodiesel is a biofuel and appears on the world energy scene as a strong substitute for petroleum diesel for its renewable and less environmentally polluting character. It can be obtained from transesterification reaction of triacylglycerol from vegetable oils or animal fats with short chainalcohol in the presence of homogeneous or heterogeneous catalysts. In recent years the production of alkyl ester by using heterogeneous catalysts it has excelled due to their capacity for regeneration, reuse and reduction of processing stages. Several parameters have been evaluated in the reaction steps, such as amount of catalyst, molar ratio of alcohol:oil, temperature, agitation speed and reaction duration. Intrinsic properties of catalysts are also studied, such as porosity, surface area, catalytic activity and others. Therefore, this review presents the transesterification reaction of several raw materials, as sources of triacylglycerols, using short chain alcohols and different heterogeneous catalysts. Optimal conditions for each catalyst, as well as its respective reaction mechanisms, were summarized.
