Arsenic is a well-known natural environmental contaminant distributed in food, water, air, and soil. The developmental toxicity of arsenic exposure is a significant concern in large parts of the world. Unlike acute toxic exposure, the classical dose–response relationship is not adequate for estimating the possible impact of chronic low-level arseni...

Background: Thailand is a country with adequate iodine intake status. There were increasing reports of excessive iodine exposure in a specific children group, which could also elicit adverse health consequences. Objectives: This study explored the hair iodine levels of well-nourished children from Bangkok and the perimeters. The findings of a broa...

Non-communicable diseases (NCD) are the slow-motion disasters with imminent global health care burden. The current dietary management for NCD is dominated by the calorie balance model. Apart from the quantitative balance of calorie, healthy bioenergetics requires temporal eating and fasting rhythms, and the subsequent switching for different metabo...
Article
Worldwide, scientists are looking for specific treatment for COVID-19. Apart from the antiviral approach, the interventions to support healthy immune responses to the virus are feasible through diet, nutrition, and lifestyle approaches. This narrative review explores the recent studies on dietary, nutritional, and lifestyle interventions that influ...
Article
Lethal or critical COVID-19 occurs most in infected hosts with certain risk factors such as advanced age or pre-existing disease. Host metabolic status significantly affects the clinical presentations of SARS-CoV2 infection. Individual risk management is thus crucial for preventing severe COVID-19. Such susceptibility is individual depending on a m...

COVID-19 is a pandemic viral infection caused by a novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV2, which is a global concern of the twenty-first century for its rapid spreading in a short period. Apart from its known acute respiratory involvements, the CNS manifestations of COVID-19 are common. These neurological symptoms are diverse and could range from mild nonspe...

The mutation of the homeostatic iron regulatory genes (HFE) impaired the hepatic hepcidin transcription leading to the chronic excess of the iron pool, with the adverse consequences of free radical oxidative damages. We herein reported the findings of Thai family members who had the compound of uncommon HFE rs2794719, together with transferrin (TF)...
Article
COVID-19 rapidly turned to a global pandemic posing lethal threats to overwhelming health care capabilities, despite its relatively low mortality rate. The clinical respiratory symptoms include dry cough, fever, anosmia, breathing difficulties, and subsequent respiratory failure. No known cure is available for COVID-19. Apart from the anti-viral st...
Article
The characteristics of healthy bioenergetics are the overall balance of energy intake and expenditure, the alternate switching for different metabolic fuels, and the temporal rhythm of eating and fasting. These three bioenergetic attributes, herein, are termed as the metabolic tempo. Cumulative studies revealed the beneficial health effects of fast...
Article
It is an ugly fact that a significant amount of the world's population will contract SARS-CoV infection with the current spreading. While specific treatment is not yet coming soon, individual risk assessment and management strategies are crucial. The individual preventive and protective measures drive the personal risk of getting the disease. Among...
Article
The obesity and the associated non-communicable diseases (NCDs) were globally increasing in their prevalence. While the modern-day lifestyle required less ventilation of metabolic energy through muscular activities, this lifestyle transition also provided the unlimited accession to foods around the clock, which prolonged the daily eating period of...
Chapter
Arsenic contamination is a global burden and arsenicosis is mostly found in poor children living in highly exposed area. However, recent evidences suggest that continuous low-level exposure of arsenic can also link with some health hazards. Therefore, this book chapter will describe the potential exposure sources of arsenic in the context of health...

Toxic element exposure increases risk of neurodevelopmental disorders. However, hair element profiles of well-nourished urban resident children were largely unknown. We identified prevalence and the contributing factors of high hair aluminum (Al), arsenic (As), cadmium (Cd), lead (Pb), and mercury (Hg) levels in 111 Thai children (aged 3–7 years ol...

Zinc status is an important modifiable factor in Attention Deficit and Hyperactive Disorders (ADHD) and Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD), the two most common neurodevelopmental disorders. Many studies reported low serum or plasma zinc level in children with these conditions. While hair zinc level can be obtained non-invasively in young children, t...

Determination of bioelement levels in hair is an emerging non-invasive approach for screening bioelement deposition. However, the role of essential bioelement levels in hair and attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) risk or severity is largely unknown. In this study, we have compared multi-element hair profiles between healthy and ADHD Th...
Article
Full-text available
Elevated blood lead level was associated with risk of attention deficit and hyperactivity disorders (ADHD). While hair mineral analysis was non-invasive and feasible for young children, association between hair lead levels and ADHD risk were inconclusive. Furthermore, the associations between ADHD risk and hair levels of other hazardous elements su...
