Models help estimate children's exposure to toxins

...hildren's overall exposure to toxins from multiple routes - inhalation, ingestion, dermal, hand-mouth, object-mouth - rely in part on Zartarian's time series work. So does the agency's recent attempt to determine if arsenic-treated wood increases children's cancer risk. Arsenic is used to treat wood in play...

Just how much water do we really need? The answer may depend on our age

...d water is then excreted from the body through all routes of water loss and is diluted by unlabeled water through all routes of input. The time course of labeled water dilution provides a measure of water turnover (input and ...

Marine sponges provide model for nanoscale materials production

...they are now looking to learn new biotechnological routes to make high performance electronic and optical materials. "We are now learning how to harness the biomolecular mechanism that directs the nanofabrication of silica in living organisms," says Morse. "This is to learn to direct the synthesis of photo...

New study seeks to establish mechanism between areas of the brain and continence

...tic fibers of the second, third, and fourth sacral routes through nerves associated with genitalia. Despite the considerable information existing about the peripheral and reflex control of the EAS, there are sparse data about the central control of voluntary contraction of this sphincter in humans.

Educational program increases some safety behaviors for older drivers

..., postponing trips in bad weather, and seeking out routes in which three right turns could substitute for one left turn. Drivers were encouraged to identify strategies that could realistically be incorporated into their own routine driving. Before the session ended participants set goals in a personal wri...

Microbe's trick provides a template for willowy crystals

...uman hands. "The hope is that this may inspire new routes for biomimetic synthesis," Banfield says. De Stasio notes that mollusks, combining a polymer matrix and a mineral, produce shells that are 3,000 times harder than the mineral alone. Scientists have yet to make any composite material that is tougher t...

New research supports theory that indirect transmission of chronic wasting disease

...that we need to consider severalpotential exposure routes when attempting to control thisdisease." Hobbs said the research could be important in helping to slow thespread of CWD. "Ultimately, we want to develop models that predict the behaviorof the disease," Hobbs explained. "For example, we would like t...

First ever standards linking climate change, biodiversity and poverty seek global peer review

...t is a non-native plantation that blocks migratory routes of key species and illegally evicts local people. Some inferior projects will cause harm, while others may cause tradeoffs between climate change mitigation, sustainable development and biodiversity conservation. This draft marks the beginning of a ...
