Air pollution has become a global environmental challenge and poses major threats to human health, particularly for the aging population. However, few studies have investigated the effects of air pollutants on human longevity, especially based on the total regional quantities and sources. Based on investigation of the spatiotemporal variations of three air pollutants (PM10, SO2, and NOx) and Author: Qucheng Deng, Yongping Wei, Lijuan Chen, Wei Liang, Jijun Du, Yuling Tan, Yinjun Zhao.   In-soil human decomposition is comprehensively described in terms of the physico-chemical and bacterial environmental conditions. Much of the understanding comes from considerations of cemetery studies and experimentation with adipocere. The understandings are relevant for further studies in cemetery management, exhumations, forensic investigations and by: Search the world's most comprehensive index of full-text books. Summary: In this article from Science magazine, a USDA scientist discusses the budding awareness of the nutritional dependency of the plant on the soil and, in turn, of the animal and human being on the plant, making the health of the soil critical for human wellness. “These developments in the science of nutrition,” Dr. Auchter writes, “suggest that we ought to give more attention.

In another study, scientists at the University of California, Davis, compared levels of flavonoids — phytonutrients that protect against cardiovascular disease, cancer, and dementia — in tomatoes raised organically over. Soil organic matter (SOM) is the organic matter component of soil, consisting of plant and animal detritus at various stages of decomposition, cells and tissues of soil microbes, and substances that soil microbes provides numerous benefits to the physical and chemical properties of soil and its capacity to provide regulatory ecosystem services.   Sandy soils have CEC between meq/g.4 Clay soils such as smectite and illite can have CECs between meq/g.3,4 Increasing the clay content of a sandy soil will help increase its CEC. Similar to clay particles, organic matter have negatively charged sites which attract and hold on Author: Arit Efretuei. Soil contamination or soil pollution can occur either because of human activities or because of natural processes. However, mostly it is due to human activities. The soil contamination can occur due to the presence of chemicals such as pesticides, herbicides, ammonia, petroleum hydrocarbons, lead, nitrate, mercury, naphthalene, etc in an excess.

Nuns of 3 religious orders were studied. Those of the closed order undertook essential agricultural and domestic work and had a daily intake of about kcal, of which 10% came from protein and 20% from lipids. Nuns of the semi-closed order did more heavy work; their diet supplied kcal of which 15% came from protein and 20% from : L. Morisio Guidetti. Life in the Soil: A Perspective to Healthy Farming.

On all sides growing interest is observable in the relation of the chemical composition of soil to the nutritive value of foods. There has been much speculation on the subject of just how close this relation is and on the factors which may play a role in improving the nutritive quality of foods.

Soil health is defined as, “the capacity of a specific kind of soil to function, within natural or managed ecosystem boundaries, to sustain plant and animal productivity, maintain or enhance water and air quality, and support human health and habitation” (Doran and Zeiss, ).

It seems obvious that there’s a connection between the health of a farm and our own health. Biodiverse soils produce healthier, more nutritious food.

And way too much of the food we eat comes from farms where the soil is treated as a sterile growing medium. The first edition, published inwas largely a guide to good soil management for farmers in the glaciated regions of New York State in the northeastern U.S.

Since then, it has evolved to provide a globally relevant framework for an integrated understanding of the diversity of soils, the soil system and its role in the ecology of planet Earth. Soil Compaction Soil compaction is defined as the method of mechanically increasing the density of soil.

In construction, this is a significant part of the building process. If performed improperly, settlement of the soil could occur and result in unnecessary maintenance costs File Size: 2MB. Soil biodiversity sustains human health and its loss can be mitigated by sustainable management.

Soil biodiversity and human health Diana h. Wall 1*, Uffe n. n ielsen 2* & Johan six 3* s oils comprise a dynamic reservoir of biodiversity within which the interactions between microbes, animals and plants provide many benefits for human well-being; however, their potential use for the maintenance of human health has been less clear 1–3 Cited by: Soil Compaction.

Soil compaction is a consequence of urbanization and other human activities such as forest harvesting, pipeline installation, construction, amenity land use, wildlife trampling, intensive use of heavy machinery, grazing, short crop rotations, and other types of. The development and formation of chemical elements in soil are affected not only by parent material, climate, biology, and topology factors, but also by human activities.

As the main elements supporting life on earth system, the C, N, P, S cycles in soil have been altered by human activity through land-use change, agricultural intensification, and use of fossil by: 4.

Food contributes a greater proportion of daily elemental intake than drinking water, and the Se content in food is positively correlates with the Se content in soil.

Because of this, we selected the Se content in soil to represent the relationship between longevity and trace by: 5. Written by Caleb Finch, one of the leading scientists of our time, The Biology of Human Longevity: Inflammation, Nutrition, and Aging in the Evolution of Lifespans synthesizes several decades of top research on the topic of human aging and longevity particularly on the recent theories of inflammation and its effects on human health.

The book expands a number of existing major theories. eligible for longevity pay if hired on or before J Employees become eligible for longevity at the completion of 36 months of creditable state employment. Under certain conditions, part-time employees may be eligible to receive longevity.

Employees hired after J are not eligible to receive longevity. This book provides an interesting introductory perspective on both topics, although it tends to use them interchangeably. The central premise is that soils form an integral link in a holistic view of human health that includes physical, mental, and social dimensions.

Price: $ The soil texture is determined by the relative proportions of the individual particles of sand, silt, and clay that make up the soil. The interaction of the individual mineral particles with organic matter, water, gases via biotic and abiotic processes causes those particles to flocculate (stick together).

Human Longevity Facts. Sometime arounda group of scientists concluded that human beings could live to a maximum of one hundred and twenty years of age. It was discovered that shortly before reaching one hundred and twenty, the process that causes body cells to reproduce fails.

The cells then die, as well as the person. Drinking water is an important source for trace elements intake into human body.

Thus, the drinking water quality has a great impact on people's health and longevity. This study aims to study the relationship between drinking water quality and human health and longevity. A longevity county Mayang in Hunan province, China was chosen as the study : Jinmei Lu, Fuqing Yuan.

Without plants, the earth would be barren, its surface unprotected from the effects of sun, wind, and rain, and its soil composition too poor to sustain life. Plant roots help to prevent erosion, and when plants die.When the organic matter content of a soil exceeds 20 to 35% (on a dry weight basis) it is considered organic soil material, and the soil is called an organic soil.

As this material is mostly devoid of mineral soil material, they cannot be described in terms of soil texture. However, the following “in lieu of” texture terms can be used to.
