And by "stacking" multiple images at various depths of focus, the system produces three-dimensional images or movies. Each action potential is a single...

Waste motor oil management may pose threat to health and the environment

After adjusting for each metal's relative toxicity and adding the results together, the researchers compared the effects of untreated used oil as fuel to both re-refining and distillation. In both comparisons, the toxicity potential of untreated oil was 150 times gr...

BRCA mutations not associated with colorectal cancer risk, studies suggest
