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
