showed that red and white wine were effective in controlling the growth of several strains of streptococci bacteria that are involved in tooth decay, and some cases of sore throat. Overall, our findings seem to indicate that wine can act as an effective antimicrobial agent against the tested pathogenic oral streptococci and might be active in caries and upper respiratory tract pathologies prevention, the study states, noting that tests now are underway to determine wines effects on those diseases in humans.

New study supports stopping and restarting school buses to cut emissions
Environmental Science & Technology
New evidence reported in ACSs Environmental Science & Technology (ES&T) suggests that anti-idling advocates are on the right track in an ongoing debate over exhaust emissions from school buses.
In a study scheduled for the July 15 issue of ES&T, a semi-monthly journal, the U. S. Environmental Protection Agencys John S. Kinsey and colleagues note that regulatory agencies and school districts have issued guidance or regulations limiting the idling of school buses while students are getting on and off. Those actions resulted from studies of Page: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 Related biology news :1
