CARACAS Kids Sergei Bobrovsky Jersey , Sept. 13 (Xinhua) -- Unilateral sanctions by Washington will harm both U.S. companies and Venezuela's economy, Delcy Rodriguez, president of Venezuela's National Constituent Assembly (ANC) newly elected to rewrite the constitution, told Xinhua in an interview.

U.S. President Donald Trump signed an executive order imposing new sanctions on Venezuela last month, which will prohibit dealings in new debt and equity issued by the government of Venezuela and its state oil company.

It was the latest round of sanctions slapped by the Trump administration on the South American country after Venezuela held elections for the ANC at the end of July.

"The main holders of Venezuelan debt bonds are Americans, Canadians and British; (Trump) is harming those bond holders," said Rodriguez.

Washington's unilateral actions "are going to harm U.S. companies," she said.

Venezuela's business ties with the United States created jobs and contributed to social programs which are affected by the sanctions.

"Venezuela has refineries in the United States that provide jobs for Americans. Venezuela has refineries that also develop social programs for Americans, so both the people of the United States and the people of Venezuela are being directly harmed," said Rodriguez.

Since 2005, Venezuelan-owned CITGO Petroleum Corporation in the U.S. state of Texas, which operates thousands of gas stations, has supplied low-income U.S. families with free fuel to heat their homes in winter, aiding more than 1.7 million U.S. residents across 25 states, Rodriguez said.

Should commercial ties between the two countries be severed, Rodriguez said "we have other markets where we can sell our oil."

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 4 (Xinhua) -- The global toll of chronic kidney disease (CKD) attributable to air pollution has reached more than 10 million each year, a new study revealed.

The study was presented by the American Society of Nephrology Kidney Week 2017 October 31-November 5 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

The researchers from Clinical Epidemiology Center at the VA Saint Louis Health Care System previously described an association between increased levels of fine particulate matter and risk of developing CKD, but then the investigators used the Global Burden of Disease study methodologies in the latest research to estimate the burden of CKD attributable to air pollution.

Results from the study suggests that the burden varies greatly by geography, with higher values seen in Central America and South Asia.

"Air pollution might at least partially explain the rise in incidence of CKD of unknown origin in many geographies around the world, and the rise in Mesoamerican nephropathy in Mexico and Central America," lead researcher Benjamin Bowe was quoted as saying in a news release.
