Several U.S. supermarket chains have teamed up with the EPA and the refrigerant and refrigeration industries in a voluntary program to curb emissions that can exacerbate climate change... The 10 supermarket partners have also committed to use only ozone-friendly refrigerant alternatives and technologies in all their new and remodeled stores... Results from 2 Indiana counties showed that hospital admissions for heart attacks among nonsmokers with no risk factors for heart disease dropped 70% within 22 months of a smoking ban going into effect... Admissions for heart attacks among smokers didn’t change, however... Secondhand smoke causes blood vessels to constrict and reduces the amount of oxygen that can be transported in the bloodstream... Once a chief export, Malawian peanuts are now banned in the European Union because of the threat of aflatoxin contamination... An NGO known as the Food and Chemical Safety Environmental Action Team is educating Malawian farmers on safety measures, including better grain sorting and storage methods... The National Smallholder Farmers’ Association of Malawi also is helping farmers meet aflatoxin safety requirements for exporting their products... UNEP has also launched the HCFC Help Centre at http://www.unep.fr/ozonaction/topics/hcfc.asp to educate policy makers about HCFCs and their alternatives... Sweden has largely phased out HCFCs, which were used to replace ozone-depleting chlorofluorocarbons before they too were found to harm the ozone layer and significantly contribute to climate change... Governments need to spend health dollars in ways that can benefit the most people... A study in the Autumn 2007 issue of Ethnicity & Disease looked at the cultural specificity of asthma education brochures distributed in Wisconsin and found that many were ineffective at educating vulnerable populations about asthma care and prevention... The authors found several translation errors in Spanish-language materials and a lack of attention to cultural issues relevant to American Indian groups (such as the use of smudging and a tendency to distrust maintenance asthma medication).
