This article has been retracted at the request of the author and/or the Editor-in-Chief. Please see Elsevier Policy on Article Withdrawal

Reason: This article has been retracted at the request of the Editor in Chief as the author has plagiarized parts of previously published papers in introductory and discussion sections:

One of the conditions of submission of a paper for publication is that authors declare explicitly that all portions of their work are original and have not appeared in a publication elsewhere. Re-use of any text, figures, or data should be appropriately cited. Since this article quoted sections of prior work without appropriate acknowledgment, it violates scientific publishing system protocol. The scientific community takes a very strong view on this matter and we apologize to readers of the journal that this was not detected during the submission process.
