Comments Off on Scientists Develop Plasma-Treated Nano Filter to Clean Water in the Developing World

A team of international researchers have found a new way to purify water in the developing world. It’s a filter made of plasma-charged carbon nano-tubes that can easily filter out harmful contaminants and even remove salt from otherwise undrinkable briny water. The filters are small — easy to integrate into a teapot-sized  portable water purifier . For poor or remote villages, these devices would be much more practical than building a large-scale  purification plant , which would require a large amount of energy and high labor costs to keep running.

Comments Off on Nearly 50 Percent of All US Meat is Contaminated with Superbugs

Photo via Shutterstock A new analysis by the Environmental Working Group has found that close to 50 percent of supermarket meat products in the US are tainted with so-called superbugs—strains of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. These bacteria are not only responsible for food-borne illnesses (such as E. coli), and other infections but are also tied to the spread of resistance to antibiotics in humans. The reason for this incredibly high presence of antibiotic resistant bacteria in meat? It has something to do with the 30 million pounds of antibiotics sold for use in US livestock in 2011 alone.

Comments Off on California Approves BPA Ban for Baby Bottles and Sippy Cups

Good news for parents in the Golden State: This week, the California State Senate voted to ban the chemical bisphenol A from all baby bottles and sippy cups sold in California. BPA was adopted in the 1950s to make hard plastics, but the chemical has been linked to serious health problems including diabetes, breast and prostate cancer, and heart disease. The new law, sponsored by Environmental Working Group and authored by State Assembly member Betsy Butler (D-Marina Del Ray) and State Senator Fran Pavley (D-Agoura Hills), will go into effect July 1, 2013, and it will require manufacturers to use the least toxic alternative substance for those products.
