Plasticenta: First evidence of microplastics in human placenta

Due to the crucial role of placenta in supporting the foetus development, the presence of exogenous and potentially harmful (plastic) particles is a matter of great concern. (23/12/2020)

Characterization of aluminum, aluminum oxide and titanium dioxide nanomaterials using a combination of methods for particle surface and size analysis

The recommended limit for aluminum release from food is 5 mg kg−1 food. With this study, it becomes obvious that there should be differentiation for the different forms, as they may be taken up and react differently. (08/12/2020)

Aluminium Drinking Water Treatment Residuals and Their Toxic Impact on Human Health

Data in the literature suggest that exposure to aluminium via drinking water may be a contributing factor in the development of Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders. (24/10/2020)

Daily intoxication: Creating a "battery" with lasagne and tin foil exposes you to higher levels of aluminium ions.

Aluminium foil is one electrode, and the pan, often steel or different alloy of aluminium, is the second electrode. The aluminium foil corrodes at a faster rate in the oven (13/10/2020)

Aluminium oxide nanoparticles compromise spatial learning and memory performance in rats

The results show a connection among oxidative stress and aluminum accumulation in the hippocampus, which leads to spatial memory deficit in rats treated with aluminum oxide nanoparticles. (01/10/2020)

Influence of the Titanium Implant Surface Treatment on the Surface Roughness and Chemical Composition

Note: Other studies show that the high roughness causes the surface to wrinkle and break when entering the hard bone and thus release particles that will bioaccumulate and can migrate into the bloodstream. (23/09/2020)

Surface Damage on Dental Implants with Release of Loose Particles after Insertion into Bone

Shearing forces during the ion procedure alters the surface of dental implants. Loose metal particles can be generated at bone-implant interface especially around surfaces composed mainly by peaks and with increased height parameters. (21/09/2020)

Prevalences of peri-implantitis and peri-implant mucositis: systematic review and meta-analysis

Weighted mean implant-based peri-implantitis prevalences were 9.25% and peri-implant mucositis prevalences were 29.48% (09/09/2020)

Metals, autoimmunity, and neuroendocrinology: Is there a connection?

It has been demonstrated that metals can induce autoimmunity. Recent research has tried to evaluate the possible interactions of the immune system with metal ions, particularly with heavy metals. (23/07/2020)
