Potential Release Scenarios for Carbon Nanotubes Used in Composites
Journal Article 5/23/2013
​The expected widespread use of carbon nanotube (CNT)-composites in consumer products calls for an assessment of the possible release and exposure to workers, consumers and the environment.  Release of CNTs may occur at all steps in the life cycle of products, but to date only limited information is available about release of CNTs from actual products and articles.
 
US Food Security and Climate Change: Agricultural Futures
Journal Article 2/22/2013
Open access article on the possible impact of climate change on food security through 2050.
 
A Review of the Environmental Safety of the Cry1F Protein
Journal Article 1/1/2013
This document provides a comprehensive review of the information and data relevant to the environmental risk assessment of Cry1F, a family of proteins encoded by genes isolated from acillus thuringiensis (Bt), and it presents a summary statement about the environmental safety of these proteins when produced in genetically engineered (GE) cotton (Gossypium hirsutum) and maize (Zea mays) plants.
 
A Review of the Environmental Safety of the Cry2Ab Protein
Journal Article 1/1/2013
This document provides a comprehensive review of the information and data relevant to the environmental risk assessment of Cry2Ab, a protein encoded by genes isolated from Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt).
 
A Review of the Environmental Safety of the Cry34Ab1 and Cry35Ab1 Proteins
Report/White Paper 1/1/2013
​This document provides a comprehensive review of the information and data relevant to the environmental risk assessment of two proteins encoded by genes isolated from Bacillus thuringiensis, Cry 34Ab1 and Cry35Ab1, and presents a summary statement about the environmental safety of these proteins when produced in the genetically engineered (GE) maize event DAS-59122-7 (Zea mays, L.).
 
Do Short Physical Activity Breaks in Classrooms Work?
Report/White Paper 1/1/2013
A Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Research Brief finds short physical activity breaks during the school day may improve student behavior and on-task behavior, and improve some measures of health. ILSI Research Foundation's TAKE10! is mentioned as an school intervention program that helps!
 
Innovative Tools Help Counselors Discuss Childhood Obesity with Parents
Journal Article 1/1/2013
​An ongoing assessment of new tools to help WIC counselors better serve their clients with regard to pediatric overweight.
 
​¡Míranos! Look at Us, We Are Healthy!
Journal Article 1/1/2012
This article in Childhood Obesity looks at an environmental approach to early childhood obesity prevention.
 
Surrogate Species Selection for Assessing Potential Adverse Environmental Impacts of Genetically Engineered Plants on Non-Target Organisms
Proceedings 1/1/2012
To help identify and address the challenges facing researchers studying the effects of genetically engineered insect-resistant crops on non-target organisms (NTOs), CERA hosted the conference "Surrogate Species Selection for Assessing Potential Adverse Environmental Impacts of Genetically Engineered Plants on Non-Target Organisms." The Conference was held in the Washington, DC office of the ILSI Research Foundation, June 26-28, 2012, and it brought together 37 government, university, and private industry scientists from around the world representing the fields of entomology, ecology, agronomy, chemistry, and ecotoxicology. Over the course of the three-day meeting, the participants reached consensus on selection criteria for surrogate species to be used in the testing of insect-resistant crops on NTOs. In developing these criteria, the participants focused on ensuring that NTO testing would be practicable, test results would be scientifically and statistically valid, and the data obtained would accurately predict any adverse impacts likely from the use of the crops. The proceedings of the Conference include the presentations, case studies, breakout and plenary discussions, and the points of consensus agreed to by the participants.
