The possible changes in semen quality were studied in men living in a boron mining area. The subjects in the boron group had exposure to boron at an average level of 6.5 mg/day, as determined by urinary analysis. The results obtained by the boron group were compared to those obtained for the control group whose subjects were living in the same geographical area but away from the boron region; average exposure level was 1.4 mg/day for this group. The semen samples were analyzed according to the recommendatio...

Effects of different starch types on retardation of staling of microwave-baked cakes
Seyhun, N; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil (2005-03-01)
Different types of starches (corn, potato, waxy corn, amylomaize and pregelatinized starches) were added to cake formulations to retard staling of microwave-baked cakes. As a control, cake formulated without any starch addition was used. Weight loss, firmness, volume index, specific gravity, soluble starch and amylose content of cakes were used as the indicators of staling and/or quality criteria. Variation of staling parameters during storage of cakes followed zero-order kinetics. Cakes were baked in a mic...
Effects of hydrocolloids on apparent viscosity of batters and quality of chicken nuggets
Altunakar, B; Şahin, Serpil; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm (Informa UK Limited, 2006-06-01)
The effect of different types of starches and gums on batter consistency and the effect of batter consistency on quality parameters of deep-fat fried chicken nuggets were determined in this study. Consistency of batter was correlated with coating pickup and oil content of the product. Addition of different starch and gum species to batter was found to be effective for both viscosity development and quality attributes of deep-fat fried chicken nuggets. Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose gum (HPMC), xanthan gum, a...
Effects of dietary boron on cervical cytopathology and on micronucleus frequency in exfoliated buccal cells

Recent evidence indicates that boron and borates may have anticarcinogenic properties. In this study, we have investigated the incidence of adverse cytological findings in cervical smears and the micronucleus (MN) frequency in women living in boron-rich and boron-poor regions. Cervical smears were prepared from 1059 women with low socioeconomic status; 472 of the women lived in relatively boron-rich rural areas, while 587 lived in relatively boron-poor regions. The average and standard deviation values for ...
