Coffee Without Addiction, Possible New Treatment For Osteoporosis, Wrinkle-Free Cotton, And More

The American Chemical Society, the world's largest scientific society, will hold its spring national meeting in Anaheim from March 21-25, 1999. ACS expects 11,000 registrants to attend sessions that will cover more than 6,100 papers on cutting-edge chemistry in topic areas including medicine, food, the environment, new materials, and more.

Caffeine Chemistry and Health: Coffee, tea and other caffeinated beverages could be better for you than you think. A new study shows that coffee may not be addictive, after all, and confirms its benefits to your level of alertness. Caffeine's links to the brain and behavior, performance efficiency and carcinogenesis will be explored. Cocoa and hot chocolate also are examined for possible cardiovascular health benefits.

An Improved Form of Ritalin, With New Uses: Researchers will report on a new and more effective form of this drug for hyperactivity and attention deficit disorder, promising smaller doses and fewer side effects for the estimated 1.5 million school-age children who take the drug -- and offering the potential for a new treatment for cocaine addiction.

New Chemicals Could Lead to Bone Growth Pill: New chemicals will be reported that, if successful, could be the first osteoporosis treatment to stimulate new bone growth rather than simply retard bone loss. The treatment is showing positive results in animal studies and can be put in pill form.

A New Wrinkle in No-Wrinkle Cotton: A new cost-effective and environmentally sound finish for cotton fabric has been developed by chemists to make cotton wrinkle-free; the new finish is under commercial development.

Juiced-Up Solutions for Human and Environmental Health: Chemists will report on citrus limonoids, which show anticancer potential for breast and colon cancer, and have shown efficacy in insect control in agricultural settings as well
