A Review of the Environmental Safety of the Cry3Bb1 Protein
Monograph 2014
​This document provides a comprehensive review of the information and data relevant to the environmental risk assessment of Cry3Bb1, a protein encoded by a gene isolated from Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt), and it presents a summary statement about the environmental safety of this protein when produced in genetically engineered (GE) maize (Zea mays) plants.
 
Does Increased Prescribed Exercise Alter Non-Exercise Physical Activity/Energy Expenditure in Health Adults? A Systematic Review
Journal Article 2014
​Prescribed physical activity/exercise training may reduce non-exercise physical activity resulting in no change in total daily energy expenditure and no or minimal exercise-induced weight loss.
 
Fortification: new findings and implications
Journal Article 2014
This article discusses and evaluates the value of fortification, the success of current fortification efforts, and the future role of fortification in preventing or reversing nutrient inadequacies.
 
Fortified Foods Are Major Contributors to Nutrient Intakes in Diets of US Children and Adolescents
Journal Article 2014
This paper examines the impact of fortification on nutrient adequacy and excess among US children and adolescents.
 
Measurement of Nanomaterials in Foods: Integrative Consideration of Challenges and Future Prospects
Journal Article 2014
​The risks and benefits of nanomaterials in foods and food contact materials receive conflicting international attention across expert stakeholder groups as well as in news media coverage and published research.
 
Surrogate Species Selection for Assessing Potential Adverse Environmental Impacts of Genetically Engineered Insect-Resistant Plants on Non-Target Organisms
Journal Article 2014
​Most regulatory authorities require that developers of genetically engineered insect-resistant (GEI R) crops evaluate the potential for these crops to have adverse impacts on valued non-target organisms (NTOs), i.e., organisms not intended to be controlled by the trait.
 
Transportability of Confined Field Trial Data for Environmental Risk Assessment of Genetically Engineered Plants: A Conceptual Framework
Journal Article 2014
It is commonly held that confined field trials (CFTs) used to evaluate the potential adverse environmental impacts of a genetically engineered (GE) plant should be conducted in each country where cultivation is intended, even when relevant and potentially sufficient data are already available from studies conducted elsewhere.
 
Multi-Walled Carbon Nanotubes in Polymer Matrices - Phase 2.5 Report —Comparison of Existing Studies of Release Measurement for MWCNT-Polymer Composites
Monograph 2013
​Currently there are no broadly accepted methods for evaluating release of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) from polymer matrices, which is a crucial component of conducting exposure assessments for nanomaterials in consumer products.
