Benjamin Giese et al. report in the September 2009 issue of the Bulletin of the American Meterological Society that the 1918 El Niño not only was much stronger than previously believed but also may have exacerbated influenza mortality that same year... The researchers note similar El Niño conditions are occurring this year... The study participants come from all 50 states and across the demographic spectrum, all having in common the fact that they had a sister with breast cancer... The 10-year prospective study will examine environmental and genetic factors that may contribute to breast cancer risk... In September 2009, the U.S. EPA issued a set of best practices and testing guidelines for building owners and school administrators to reduce exposure to PCBs found in caulk... The EPA also outlined research it will conduct over the next two years to help understand any health risks from PCBs in caulk; it is unclear whether or in what quantities PCBs in caulk migrate into air or dust... Findings from this research will guide the EPA in developing further recommendations to minimize exposures and safely remove the caulk... The team constructed a computational model of the enzyme’s active site and used density functional theory calculations to simulate the demethylation reaction... They found the enzyme binds to methylmercury and rearranges electrons in the compound, priming it for breakdown... Two moves—one congressional, one industry-driven—are afoot to address the current lack of ingredient disclosure on household cleaning products... Trade secret protections mean only those ingredients that pose an immediate health threat are currently required to appear on product labels, but Senate and House bills currently in committee would require products to carry complete ingredient lists... Meanwhile, the industry Consumer Product Ingredient Communication Initiative is developing a uniform voluntary system for informing consumers about product ingredients—with some key exemptions—that will launch in January 2010.
