Researchers have now found evidence that World Trade Center responders had a higher likelihood of developing liver disease if they arrived at the site right after the attacks as opposed to working at Ground Zero later in the rescue and recovery efforts. The culprit: Higher levels of exposure to toxic chemical dust.
So there is some big news on the “Roundup Weedkiller with Glyphosate” front.
Some electronic air purifiers are actually polluting indoor air by creating toxins that are known dangers to human health.
Scientists conducting a new study found that a higher intake of ultra-processed food is associated with higher risk of inflammatory bowel disease.
Weeds are a reality for many property owners. Also a reality: Commercial weedkillers contain toxic chemicals many people want to avoid. The solution? Use effective, nontoxic, DIY weedkillers. Here are some tried-and-true options.
A recent study detected endocrine disrupting pharmaceuticals and personal care product chemicals in oysters along the Oregon and Washington coast.
The results of a new study indicate that organic food intake is associated with better scores on tests of fluid intelligence (ability to solve novel reasoning problems) and working memory (ability of the brain to retain new information while it is needed in the short term)
Results of new FDA tests of nearly 100 foods indicate the vast majority of raw food in the U.S. are free of PFAS contamination.
A new study sponsored by Consumer Reports and conducted by Johns Hopkins University researchers found PFAS chemicals in 39 out of more than 100 bottled waters tested.
PFAS chemicals have among the strongest bonds in chemistry and at the present time there is no ‘death’ of these chemicals, meaning they do not break down over time, but appear they will live on “forever”. PFAS chemicals are not regulated by the U.S. government so it is up to individual states to determine and regulate PFAS chemicals to protect their residents. Many states are not addressing the PFAS problem, but some are. Here are some state laws being proposed or enacted to help protect state residents by at least minimizing exposure to the dangers of PFAS.
