Donation for research purposes may differ in important ways from donation for treatment
purposes. While both forms of donation seek to benefit others, the contribution that any one
research donor or healthy volunteer makes to the health of any other identifiable person is
exceptionally hard to pin down. A move away from a primarily altruistic model in donation for
research purposes may therefore pose a lesser challenge to solidarity and common values than
such a move in connection with donation for treatment.
From within the small yet growing body of research focused upon CAM use for pregnancy
[2,5], the majority has examined pregnant women’s use of discrete supplements or treatments
and, despite recommendations [23,24], there has been little exploration of women’s
consultations with CAM practitioners. One exception is a recent longitudinal cohort study
(n=535)  which identified no significant change in this prevalence rate over a 10 year
period compared with non-pregnant women.
As email marketing continues to mature, and digital communications expand, organizations need to
become even more strategic in email campaign implementation, to
deliver value on subscriber’s terms. To accomplish this goal, email
marketers must exceed the rising expectations of email subscribers
and ISPs. Subscribers demand organizations speak to their unique
interests and communication preferences.
Because of overcrowded inboxes, consumers also seek new, more
efficient tools with which to review emails.
Environmental toxins, including exposure to lead, pesticides, and other chemicals,
unquestionably affect fertility in men and women. Researchers have documented many
examples, the strongest cases involving industrial and occupational exposures. These usually

At the same time, however, economists were proposing effluent taxes as a policy that

Moreover, proponents of effluent fees received a receptive hearing in the political arena.
The Environmental Pollution Panel of the President’s Science Advisory Committee
recommended in 1965 “that careful study be given to tax-like systems in which all polluters
would be subject to ‘effluent charges’ in proportion to their contribution to pollution ….

My research uses the economic approach to analyze social issues that range
beyond those usually considered by economists. This lecture will describe
the approach, and illustrate it with examples drawn from past and current
Unlike Marxian analysis, the economic approach I refer to does not
assume that individuals are motivated solely by selfishness or gain. It is a
method of analysis, not an assumption about particular motivations. Along
with others, I have tried to pry economists away from narrow assumptions
about self interest.
Ensuring that children are healthy and able to learn is an essential part of an effective
education system. As many studies show, education and health are inseparable. A child’s
nutritional status affects cognitive performance and test scores; illness from parasitic
infection results in absence from school, leading to school failure and dropping out (Vince
Whitman et al., 2001). Structures and conditions of the learning environment are as
important to address as individual factors. Water and sanitation conditions at school can
affect girls’ attendance.
