Electrical and electronic waste (e-waste) burning and recycling activities have become one of the main emission sources of dioxin-like compounds (DLCs). Workers involved in e-waste recycling operations and residents living near e-waste recycling sites (EWRS) are exposed to high levels of DLCs. Epidemiological and experimental in vivo studies have r...

Waste from end-of-life electrical and electronic equipment, known as e-waste, is a rapidly growing global problem. E-waste contains valuable materials that have an economic value when recycled. Unfortunately, the majority of e-waste is recycled in the unregulated informal sector and results in significant risk for toxic exposures to the recyclers,...

... Therefore, it is essential to identify specific links in subsequent prospective cohort studies. Third, due to the limited sample volume, we did not adjust for other environmental contaminants, such as mercury, cadmium, chromium, polybrominated diphenyl ethers, polychlorinated biphenyls, and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, which are also neurotoxic and ubiquitous in e-waste Dai et al., 2020;Heacock et al., 2018). Last, although maternal education, family monthly income, and distance between residence and road were adjusted as confounding factors in the regression models, potential selection bias may still not be completely eliminated for their difference between the two groups. ...
... Without losing sight of the unfinished progress on reducing global child mortality, the global strategy for women´s, children´s and adolescents' health implore researchers and decision makers to aspire beyond a world in which all children not only survive but thrive in order to realize their potential to transform communities 5 . Social, economic, political, environmental, and cultural determinants have important effects on child health [6][7][8] while the survival, health and well-being of children are crucial to reach multiple sustainable development outcomes 9,10 . ...
... The growing amount of electronic waste (e-waste) has been receiving increasing attention in the recycling industry [1][2][3]. The e-waste disassembly process is usually time-consuming and labor-intensive [4][5][6][7]. The disassembly sequence should not be considered as the reverse of the assembly [8][9][10], since the components to be disassembled may have different conditions, such as missing parts, corrosion, or other hazardous substances and attributes that need to be handled cautiously. ...
... The global incidence of metabolic complications has considerably increased recently, which can be partly attributed to exposure to environmental pollutants (Le Magueresse-Battistoni et al., 2018;Sen et al., 2022). Approximately 800 environmental pollutants have been classified/suspected as endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs), which are the substances that interfere with the human endocrine system (Bergman et al., 2013). Bisphenols, particularly bisphenol A (BPA), and phthalates are two of the most widely used and short-lived EDCs (Rosenfeld, 2015;Bao et al., 2020). ...
