The biological and toxicological importance of molybdenum in the environment and in the nutrition of plants, animals and man

Part IV: The molybdenum intake of adults with mixed and vegetarian diets in Germany and Mexico (duplicate portion studies)

Authors: M. Anke, S. Holzinger, M. Seifert, R. Müller and U. Schäfer

The molybdenum intake by German and Mexican adults (21 test populations) aged 20 to 69 years with mixed and ovolactovegetarian diets were determined. Each test group consisted of at least 7 women and 7 men, which collected all consumed foodstuffs and beverages as visually estimated duplicates on 7 successive days. The balance studies were carried out with 8 test populations (women and men) with mixed and ovolactovegetarian diets. People with mixed diet in Germany consumed, on average, 89 (women) and 100 μg Mo/day (men), whereas in Mexico they took in 160 and 210 μg Mo/day, respectively. German ovolactovegetarians consumed ∼175 μg Mo/day. Male adults of Germany consumed 21% more molybdenum than women. This difference is the result of a 24% higher dry matter intake by males. The residence place, its geological origin and time of examination influenced the molybdenum intake significantly (60–115 μg Mo/day). The normative molybdenum requirement of adults amounts to 25 μg/day, with women needing 20 and men 25 μg/day. As a rule approximately only one-third of the absorbed molybdenum is excreted renally, the rest faecally. Breast feeding mothers excreted 11% via milk, 56% faecally and 33% renally. The apparent absorption rate of molybdenum amounted to 37% in humans with mixed and vegetarian diets, whereas it reached 44% in breast-feeding mothers. The calculation of molybdenum consumption (basket method) overestimated the molybdenum intake by 50% in comparison to chemical determination by the duplicate portion method.

The research topic contributes to the possibilities of energy performance modernization in ‘Squirell Garden’ Nursery School in Csurgó, Hungary. The building bears a special importance for my family and for me, since my mother works there, and I used to attend it as a child. The aim is to achieve an improvement that fulfills the infrastructural requirements set for modern, 21st century nursery schools, that improves the comfort level of children and teachers in the nursery school, makes the maintenance of the facilities more economical and in conformity with regulations, and enhances the quality of education as well as the visual appearance of the building. The target group of the modernization consists of the nursery-school children, parents, nursery-school teachers and nannies, the local government of Csurgó. The study and the calculations implemented are giving a general idea about modernization possibilities of a vintage, since decades unrefurbished kindergarten building, focusing on comfort and low energy consumption.

Evacuation centers play a vital role for natural disaster-prone countries like the Philippines. In the Philippines, a public school building serves as temporary evacuation centers for the displaced families. This study presents the design and methodology of blackboard modular furniture that can be converted to an emergency partition and storage for emergency provisions. These modular partitions provide a sense of privacy for each of the affected families, which are needed in any evacuation centers, particularly on the sick, aged, menstruating women and lactating mothers, among others. By using the participative design method, the design will therefore ensure user acceptability by the stakeholders. The resulting design allows for adaptability and portability, which therefore reduce material waste and cost. The final design was the product of the both participatory design approach while following the guidelines of the Department of Education of the Philippines.
