Incidence and public health burden of sunburn among beachgoers in the United States.

Stephanie DeFlorio-Barker, Dawn Holman, Robert Landolfi, Benjamin F Arnold, John M Colford, Stephen B Weisberg, Kenneth C Schiff, Elizabeth A Sams, Timothy J Wade,

The beach environment creates many barriers to effective sun protection, putting beachgoers at risk for sunburn, a well-established risk factor for skin cancer. Our objective was to estimate incidence of sunburn among beachgoers and evaluate the relationship between sunburn incidence and sun-protective behaviors. A secondary analysis, of prospective cohorts at ... Read more >>

Associations between environmental quality and adult asthma prevalence in medical claims data.

Christine L Gray, Danelle T Lobdell, Kristen M Rappazzo, Yun Jian, Jyotsna S Jagai, Lynne C Messer, Achal P Patel, Stephanie A DeFlorio-Barker, Christopher Lyttle, Julian Solway, Andrey Rzhetsky,

As of 2014, approximately 7.4% of U.S. adults had current asthma. The etiology of asthma is complex, involving genetics, behavior, and environmental factors. To explore the association between cumulative environmental quality and asthma prevalence in U.S. adults, we linked the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Environmental Quality Index (EQI) to the ...

Sanitary Sewer Overflows and Emergency Room Visits for Gastrointestinal Illness: Analysis of Massachusetts Data, 2006-2007.

Jyotsna S Jagai, Stephanie DeFlorio-Barker, Cynthia J Lin, Elizabeth D Hilborn, Timothy J Wade,

BACKGROUND:Sanitary sewer overflows (SSOs) occur when untreated sewage is discharged into water sources before reaching the treatment facility, potentially contaminating the water source with gastrointestinal pathogens. OBJECTIVES:The objective of this paper is to assess associations between SSO events and rates of gastrointestinal (GI) illness in Massachusetts. METHODS:A case-crossover study design ...

Estimate of incidence and cost of recreational waterborne illness on United States surface waters.

Stephanie DeFlorio-Barker, Coady Wing, Rachael M Jones, Samuel Dorevitch,

BACKGROUND:Activities such as swimming, paddling, motor-boating, and fishing are relatively common on US surface waters. Water recreators have a higher rate of acute gastrointestinal illness, along with other illnesses including respiratory, ear, eye, and skin symptoms, compared to non-water recreators. The quantity and costs of such illnesses are unknown on ... Read more >>

Child environmental exposures to water and sand at the beach: Findings from studies of over 68,000 subjects at 12 beaches.

Stephanie DeFlorio-Barker, Benjamin F Arnold, Elizabeth A Sams, Alfred P Dufour, John M Colford, Steven B Weisberg, Kenneth C Schiff, Timothy J Wade,

Swimming and recreating in lakes, oceans, and rivers is common, yet the literature suggests children may be at greater risk of illness following such exposures. These effects might be due to differences in immunity or differing behavioral factors such as poorer hygiene, longer exposures to, and greater ingestion of potentially ... Read more >>

Monitoring urban beaches with qPCR vs. culture measures of fecal indicator bacteria: Implications for public notification.

Samuel Dorevitch, Abhilasha Shrestha, Stephanie DeFlorio-Barker, Cathy Breitenbach, Ira Heimler,

<h4>Background</h4>The United States Environmental Protection Agency has established methods for testing beach water using the rapid quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) method, as well as "beach action values" so that the results of such testing can be used to make same-day beach management decisions. Despite its numerous advantages over culture-based ... Read more >>

Water recreation and illness severity.

Stephanie DeFlorio-Barker, Timothy J Wade, Mary Turyk, Samuel Dorevitch,

The health endpoint of prior studies of water recreation has been the occurrence of gastrointestinal (GI) illness. This dichotomous measure fails to take into account the range of symptom severity among those with GI illness, and those who develop GI symptoms but who do not satisfy the definition of GI ...

Stephanie DeFlorio-Barker, Timothy J Wade, Rachael M Jones, Lee S Friedman, Coady Wing, Samuel Dorevitch,

<h4>Background</h4>The burden of illness can be described by addressing both incidence and illness severity attributable to water recreation. Monetized as cost, attributable disease burden estimates can be useful for environmental management decisions.<h4>Objectives</h4>We characterize the disease burden attributable to water recreation using data from two cohort studies using a cost of ...

Associations between bone mineral density and urinary phthalate metabolites among post-menopausal women: a cross-sectional study of NHANES data 2005-2010.

Stephanie A DeFlorio-Barker, Mary E Turyk,

Bone mineral density (BMD) decreases with age, especially among post-menopausal women. Exposures to endocrine disruptors, such as phthalate diesters, could alter BMD through a variety of unidentified mechanisms. A hypothesis-generating study investigated associations between urinary phthalate metabolites and BMD at the femoral neck and spine in post-menopausal women (n = ... Read more >>

Water quality as a predictor of gastrointestinal illness following incidental contact water recreation.

Samuel Dorevitch, Stephanie DeFlorio-Barker, Rachael M Jones, Li Liu,

Microbial measures of water quality are predictors of gastrointestinal illness among swimmers in some settings but not in others. Little is known whether water quality measures predict illness among people who engage in popular water recreation activities such as paddling, rowing, fishing, or boating ("incidental contact water recreation"). We sought ... Read more >>

Receiver-operating characteristics analysis: a new approach to predicting the presence of pathogens in surface waters.

Burcu M Yavuz, Rachael M Jones, Stephanie DeFlorio-Barker, Ember Vannoy, Samuel Dorevitch,

Fecal indicator microbes are used to monitor the public health risks of recreating in surface waters. However, the importance of indicator tests as predictors of waterborne pathogens has been unclear. Numerous studies have also shown that the survival and growth of indicator organisms may depend on location-specific factors that cannot ... Read more >>
