The decision follows a six-week review of mobile phone use and wireless radiation, including reports of an association between childhood use of cell phones and increased risk of adult cancer published 4 April 2009 by Lennart Hardell et al. ahead of print in a special issue of Pathophysiology... The EPA’s 2002 National-Scale Air Toxics Assessment, released in June 2009, shows that the polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons released by wood-burning fireplaces and stoves contribute the most to the cancer risk from breathing Oregon’s air... In work published 27 May 2009 in BMC Neuroscience, Ivan A... Lopez et al. found that chronic fetal exposure to 25 ppm carbon monoxide (CO) permanently damaged rat brain cells through oxidative stress, leading to a decrease in proteins essential for proper functioning... The authors say this exposure simulates the potential CO exposure of a human fetus whose mother is a “mild to modest” smoker... Other indoor CO exposure sources include gas appliances, fireplaces, and attached garages... There are no EPA standards for CO in indoor air... Given rising consumption of bottled water, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) evaluated the extent and strength of FDA regulations for this product... In June 2009, the GAO reported that FDA standards generally reflect those of the EPA except in the case of di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate, a compound used to make plastic bottles, for which the FDA has no standard... The GAO recommended that the FDA issue a standard or publish reasons for not doing so, and that water bottlers provide more labeling information for consumers on the quality and safety of their products... Currently, companies (unlike water utilities) are not required to disclose positive tests for contaminants.
