- 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

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. What is...
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...

have been used for 5,800-7,800 years, according the authors. "From wildebeest in Africa to antelope...

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 ...
