... Advertisement. YOU ARE HERE: LAT Home. Collections. Darkness. Op-Ed Let there be dark. All life evolved to the steady rhythm of bright days and dark nights. Too little darkness spells trouble for all. December 21, 2012. By Paul Bogard. Dawn breaks on the winter solstice at Mission San Juan Bautista. Los Angeles Times. When I was a child, I knew real darkness. At my family's cabin on a Minnesota lake, I knew woods so dark that my hands disappeared before my eyes. I knew night skies in which meteors left smoky trails across sugary spreads of stars. But now, when 8 of 10 children born in the United States will never know a sky dark enough for the Milky Way, I worry we are rapidly losing night's natural darkness before realizing its worth. This winter solstice, as we cheer the days' gradual movement back toward light, let us also remember the irreplaceable value of darkness. All life evolved to the steady rhythm of bright days and dark nights. Today, though, when we feel the closeness of nightfall, we reach ...

Cleansing and Detoxing Your System is Important. By. Dee Braun. on March 1, 2014 in. Detox, Immunity, Infection, Health and Vitality. Why do we need to detoxify and cleanse our bodies. 21st Century life brings with it stress, environmental pollution, unhealthy diets and fast foods. Illnesses like cancer, heart disease, arthritis and other lifestyle conditions are becoming more frequent. Despite plentiful food supplies and excellent medical facilities, many people in the Western world do not really know what it is like to feel truly healthy, full of energy and bounce. Modern farming methods are often more geared to producing food which is ‘bigger and better’ – rather than food which is healthy and life sustaining. Even so-called ‘healthy food’ is full of artificial hormones, insecticides and other chemicals, which destroy the vitamins and essential nutrition of the food we eat. Research has shown that environmental pollution enters the blood stream via food, water supply and the ...

*  Sky brightness
During daytime when the sun is above the horizon direct scattering of sunlight Rayleigh scattering is the overwhelmingly dominant source of light. Several sources can be identified as the source of the intrinsic brightness of the sky, namely airglow, indirect scattering of sunlight, scattering of starlight, and artificial light pollution. Airglow Indirect scattering of sunlight Scattered light from extraterrestrial sources Light pollution Twilight Relative contributions See also References. Several emission lines are dominant, a green line from oxygen at 557.7 nm, a yellow doublet from sodium at 589.0 and 589.6 nm, and red lines from oxygen at 630.0 and 636.4 nm. In daytime, sodium and red oxygen emissions are dominant, and are roughly 1000 times more luminous than nighttime emissions because in daytime, the upper atmosphere is fully exposed to solar UV radiation. J., "The total amount of starlight and the brightness of the sky," 'The Observatory, Vol. During this time, yellow emissions from ...

*  Critical load
In the study of air pollution, a 'critical load' is defined as '”A quantitative estimate of an exposure to one or more pollutant s below which significant harmful effects on specified sensitive elements of the environment do not occur according to present knowledge”'. Critical loads and the similar concept of critical level s have been used extensively within the 1979 UN-ECE Convention on Long-Range Transboundary Air Pollution. For acidification and eutrophication the critical loads concept was used, whereas for ground-level ozone the critical levels were used instead. To calculate a critical load, the target ecosystem must first be defined and in that ecosystem e.g. the Simple Mass Balance model, SMB needs to be created so that the deposition levels that result in the chemical criterion reaching exactly the critical limit can be calculated. That deposition level is called the critical load and the difference between the current deposition level and the critical load is called exceedance. Today ...

For people with existing heart problems, exposure to high levels of air pollution can trigger the irregular heartbeats that may lead to a stroke or heart attack, according to a new study. Past research has linked air pollution to ventricular fibrillation, electrical confusion in the lower chambers of the heart which can cause sudden death. The new study also finds an association with atrial fibrillation AF, erratic quivering in the heart's upper chambers and the most common type of irregular heartbeat. Link and his colleagues analyzed data from the ICDs of 176 heart patients and compared it to air quality data collected in the region. With every 6 microgram per cubic meter increase in fine particulate pollution, for example, people were 26 percent more likely to have an AF episode in the next two hours, the study team ...

Air pollution has been linked to increased cardiovascular and respiratory problems, and even premature death, in older populations, and there is emerging evidence that exposure to particulate air pollution may have adverse effects on brain health and functioning as well. This is the first study to show how exposure to air pollution influences cognitive function in a national sample of older men and women. Particulate matter, NO2 air pollution associated with increased risk of heart attacks Ailshire discovered that those living in areas with high levels of fine air particulate matter scored poorer on the cognitive function tests. Fine air particulate matter exposures ranged from 4.1 to 20.7 micrograms per cubic meter, and every ten point increase was associated with a 0.36 point drop in cognitive function score.

May 15, 2012 Beijing Olympics study reveals biological link between air pollution, cardiovascular disease May 15, 2012 Using the 2008 Beijing Olympics as their laboratory, University of Southern California USC researchers and colleagues have found biological evidence that even a short-term reduction in air pollution exposure improves one's cardiovascular health. "We believe this is the first major study to clearly demonstrate that changes in air pollution exposure affect cardiovascular disease mechanisms in healthy, young people," said Junfeng Jim Zhang, Ph.D., the study's senior author and professor of environmental and global health at the Keck School of Medicine of USC. Soluble CD62P and systolic blood pressure levels also increased significantly after the Olympics. These changes indicate that exposure to higher air pollution levels are associated with an increased risk for cardiovascular problems. In fact, it is only recently that population studies have linked air ...

Long-term exposure to air pollution may speed up the process of atherosclerosis, also known as hardening of the arteries, a new study suggests. Although this exposure to higher concentrations of air pollution could increase people's risk for heart attacks and stroke, the researchers noted that reductions in air pollution could have the opposite effect. Thickening of the inner two layers of this key blood vessel, which supplies blood to the head, neck and brain, occurred more quickly following exposure to higher concentrations of fine particulate air pollution. The researchers said the thickness of the carotid artery is an indicator of how much atherosclerosis is present in the arteries throughout the body. Our findings help us to understand how it is that exposures to air pollution may cause the increases in heart attacks and strokes observed by other studies, study ...

"For the most part, the air pollution effects are generally manifested in frail populations — people with asthma are generally more susceptible to the effects of air pollution," O'Keefe says. "So for the first time the Chinese government is providing transparent levels of air pollution that the public can actually see." Others agree that the new public monitoring system is a sign of progress. The government recognizes that the people are demanding cleaner air, cleaner water, cleaner food.

Carbon dioxide is not as lethal as carbon monoxide, sulfur oxide, or nitrogen oxide, however Carbon dioxide CO2 is one of the major pollutants in the atmosphere. Less developed countries, with 80% of the world’s people, are responsible for 35% of carbon dioxide emissions, but they may contribute 50% by 2020. Carbon dioxide emissions are increasing by 4% a year. In 1975, 18 thousand million tons of carbon dioxide was released into the atmosphere, but the atmosphere showed an increase of only 8 billion tons. If the oceans can no longer absorb this much carbon dioxide, then more carbon dioxide will remain into the atmosphere. When pollutants are released in the air, they contaminate the atmosphere with the deadly gases like Carbon monoxide, Carbon dioxide, Nitrogen dioxide, Sulfur dioxide, and so on. Air ...

March 2, 2012 Asian emissions contribute to air pollution in western United States: study March 2, 2012 As Asian countries develop, they are emitting more ozone precursors that pollute surface level air. Many studies have documented this pollution being carried by air currents to the western United States. To learn more about the mechanisms that transport air pollution across the ocean and determine the effects of Asian air pollution on air quality in the western United States, Lin et al. They find that Asian pollution contributes as much as 20 percent of total ozone during springtime pollution episodes in western U.S. surface air. The researchers also find that an index based on satellite observations of Asian pollution plumes could serve as a qualitative early warning indicator, with a lead time of one to three days, of Asian pollution influence on western U.S. air quality.

(1/630) The role of domestic factors and day-care attendance on lung function of primary school children.

The results of studies examining the relationship of domestic factors to lung function are contradictory. We therefore examined the independent effects of maternal smoking during pregnancy, exposure to environmental tobacco smoke (ETS), the presence of a cat, type of heating and cooking used in the home and day-care attendance on lung function after controlling for socioeconomic status (SES). Nine hundred and eighty-nine children from 18 Montreal schools were studied between April 1990 and November 1992. Information on the child's health and exposure to domestic factors was collected by questionnaire. Spirometry was performed at school. The data were analysed by multiple linear regression with percent predicted FEV1, FVC, and FEV1/FVC as dependent variables. In the overall sample (both sexes combined), cat in the home (regression coefficient, beta = -1.15, 95% confidence interval, CI: -2.26-(-)0.05) and electric baseboard units (beta = -1.26, 95% CI: -2.39-(-)0.13) were independently associated with a lower FEV1/FVC, while day-care attendance (beta = -2.05, 95% CI: -3.71-(-)0.40) significantly reduced FEV1. Household ETS was significantly associated with increasing level of FVC (beta = 2.86, 95% CI: +0.55 to +5.17). In boys but not girls, household ETS (beta = -2.13, 95% CI: -4.07-(-)0.19) and the presence of a cat (beta = -2.19, 95% CI: -3.94-(-)0.45) were associated with lower FEV1/FVC. By contrast, day-care attendance was associated with lower FEV1 (beta = -2.92, 95% CI: -5.27-(-)0.56) and FEV1/FVC (beta = -1.53, 95% CI: -2.73-(-)0.33) in girls only. In conclusion, the results provide evidence that domestic factors and day-care attendance primarily affected airway caliber and gender differences were apparent in the effects of these factors.  (+info)

(2/630) Prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia and apoptosis in benign prostatic hyperplasia before and after the Chernobyl accident in Ukraine.

The prevalence of prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia (PIN) in men who underwent surgery for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) before and after the Chernobyl nuclear accident was studied. BPH samples were obtained by adenomectomy from 45 patients operated in 1984 before the accident (Group I), and 47 patients from the low contaminated Kiev City (Group II) and 76 from high contaminated area (Group III) operated between 1996 and 1998. Their BPH samples were examined histologically and immunohistochemically. The incidences of prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia (PIN) and high grade PIN (HGPIN) were 15.5 and 11.1% in Group I, 29.8 and 14.9% in Grpoup II, and 35. 5 and 19.7% in Group III. The difference between the incidences of PIN in Group I and III is significant (p<0.02). There was increased apoptosis in areas of PIN in Group II and III as compared to Group I (p<0.001). Since apoptosis has been shown to be associated with ionizing radiation and it is now found to be associated with PIN in patients diagnosed after the Chernobyl nuclear accident, this suggests that long-term low dose internal ionizing radiation potentially may cause prostate cancer.  (+info)

(3/630) 8-hydroxy-2'-deoxyguanosine, a major mutagenic oxidative DNA lesion, and DNA strand breaks in nasal respiratory epithelium of children exposed to urban pollution.

Southwest metropolitan Mexico City children are repeatedly exposed to high levels of a complex mixture of air pollutants, including ozone, particulate matter, aldehydes, metals, and nitrogen oxides. We explored nasal cell 8-hydroxy-2'-deoxyguanosine (8-OHdG), a major mutagenic lesion producing G-->T transversion mutations, using an immunohistochemical method, and DNA single strand breaks (ssb) using the single cell gel electrophoresis assay as biomarkers of oxidant exposure. Nasal biopsies from the posterior inferior turbinate were examined in children in grades one through five, including 12 controls from a low-polluted coastal town and 87 Mexico City children. Each biopsy was divided for the 8-OHdG and DNA ssb assays. There was an age-dependent increase in the percentage of nasal cells with DNA tails > 10 microm in Mexico City children: 19 +/- 9% for control cells, and 43 +/- 4, 50 +/- 16, 56 +/- 17, 60 +/- 17 and 73 +/- 14%, respectively, for first through fifth graders (p < 0.05). Nasal ssb were significantly higher in fifth graders than in first graders (p < 0.05). Higher levels (2.3- to 3-fold) of specific nuclear staining for 8-OHdG were observed in exposed children as compared to controls (p < 0.05). These results suggest that DNA damage is present in nasal epithelial cells in Mexico City children. Persistent oxidative DNA damage may ultimately result in a selective growth of pr eneoplastic nasal initiated cells in this population and the potential for nasal neoplasms may increase with age. The combination of 8-OHdG and DNA ssb should be useful for monitoring oxidative damage in people exposed to polluted atmospheres.  (+info)

(4/630) Plasma jet takes off.

Thanks to a series of joint research projects by Los Alamos National Laboratory, Beta Squared of Allen, Texas, and the University of California at Los Angeles, there is now a more environmentally sound method for cleaning semiconductor chips that may also be effective in cleaning up chemical, bacterial, and nuclear contaminants. The Atmospheric Pressure Plasma Jet uses a type of ionized gas called plasma to clean up contaminants by binding to them and lifting them away. In contrast to the corrosive acids and chemical solvents traditionally used to clean semiconductor chips, the jet oxidizes contaminants, producing only benign gaseous by-products such as oxygen and carbon dioxide. The new technology is also easy to transport, cleans thoroughly and quickly, and presents no hazards to its operators.  (+info)

(5/630) Consumption and production waste: another externality of tobacco use.

OBJECTIVE: To describe the waste produced by and environmental implications of individual cigarette consumption (filter tips, packages, and cartons) and tobacco manufacturing. STUDY SELECTION: All available articles and reports published since 1970 related to cigarette consumption and production waste were reviewed. DATA SOURCES: Global cigarette consumption data were used to estimate cigarette butt and packaging waste quantities. Data from the Center for Marine Conservation's International Coastal Cleanup Project were used to describe some environmental impacts of tobacco-related trash. Data from the United States Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) Toxics Release Inventory and reported global cigarette consumption totals were used to estimate waste production from cigarette manufacturing. DATA EXTRACTION AND SYNTHESIS: In 1995, an estimated 5.535 trillion cigarettes (27,675 million cartons and 276,753 million packages) were sold by the tobacco industry globally. Some of the wastes from these products were properly deposited, but a large amount of tobacco consumption waste ends up in the environment. Some is recovered during environmental clean-up days. For the past eight years (1990-1997), cigarette butts have been the leading item found during the International Coastal Cleanup Project; they accounted for 19.1% of all items collected in 1997. The tobacco manufacturing process produces liquid, solid, and airborne waste. Among those wastes, some materials, including nicotine, are designated by the EPA as Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) chemicals. These are possible environmental health hazards. In 1995, the global tobacco industry produced an estimated 2262 million kilograms of manufacturing waste and 209 million kilograms of chemical waste. In addition, total nicotine waste produced in the manufacture of reduced nicotine cigarettes was estimated at 300 million kilograms. CONCLUSIONS: Laws against littering relative to cigarette butts could be better enforced. Additional taxes might be levied on cigarette products that would then be directed to environmental clean-up efforts. The tobacco industry should improve the biodegradability of filters, reduce packaging waste, and educate its customers. Worksites and public buildings should be encouraged or required to supply appropriate disposal mechanisms at all building entrances. Public awareness campaigns about the magnitude and prevention of cigarette consumption waste could be developed through partnerships among environmental groups, health organisations, and environmental protection agencies. Tobacco production waste should be a source of concern and regulation by governments throughout the world; it contains numerous chemicals which may be considered health hazards, not the least of which is nicotine produced in the manufacture of low-nicotine cigarettes.  (+info)

(6/630) Experimental studies on environmental contamination with infected blood during haemodialysis.

To assess the relative importance of different postulated modes of spread of hepatitis B in dialysis units, blood charged with various tracer organisms was used in simulated haemodialysis runs in four laboratories, and the resulting contamination of equipment and environment was measured semi-quantitatively. Some airborne spread of the tracer organism occurred when tubing containing contaminated blood was needled as the "patient" went on and came off the dialyser. Virtually no small airborne particles could be demonstrated however in simulated emergencies in which a blood line was disconnected, or even when bottles of blood were dropped on to a hard floor from a height of 2 metres. Bacillus globigii spores from contaminated blood leaked in small numbers into the dialysing fluid through apparently intact coils. T3 phage, with a particle size of the same order as hepatitis B virus, passed in small quantities through the membrane of a Kiil dialyser from blood to dialysing fluid and also in the reverse direction when added to the header tank. A number of other dialysers were also permeable to phage. Visual assessment of the appropriate moment for inserting the venous line into the "patient" at the onset of dialysis was shown to be unreliable, as the displaced fluid from the end of the venous line was already contaminated before it contained visible red blood cells. Considerable contamination of exposed surfaces and of the buttons on the proportionating unit cabinet occurred. Minor visible splashing of blood was a common-place of the laboratory experiments and was shown to be also a common event during routine haemodialysis in two of the dialysis units taking part in the studies.  (+info)

(7/630) Adhesion of biodegradative anaerobic bacteria to solid surfaces.

In order to exploit the ability of anaerobic bacteria to degrade certain contaminants for bioremediation of polluted subsurface environments, we need to understand the mechanisms by which such bacteria partition between aqueous and solid phases, as well as the environmental conditions that influence partitioning. We studied four strictly anaerobic bacteria, Desulfomonile tiedjei, Syntrophomonas wolfei, Syntrophobacter wolinii, and Desulfovibrio sp. strain G11, which theoretically together can constitute a tetrachloroethylene- and trichloroethylene-dechlorinating consortium. Adhesion of these organisms was evaluated by microscopic determination of the numbers of cells that attached to glass coverslips exposed to cell suspensions under anaerobic conditions. We studied the effects of the growth phase of the organisms on adhesion, as well as the influence of electrostatic and hydrophobic properties of the substratum. Results indicate that S. wolfei adheres in considerably higher numbers to glass surfaces than the other three organisms. Starvation greatly decreases adhesion of S. wolfei and Desulfovibrio sp. strain G11 but seems to have less of an effect on the adhesion of the other bacteria. The presence of Fe(3+) on the substratum, which would be electropositive, significantly increased the adhesion of S. wolfei, whereas the presence of silicon hydrophobic groups decreased the numbers of attached cells of all species. Measurements of transport of cells through hydrophobic-interaction and electrostatic-interaction columns indicated that all four species had negatively charged cell surfaces and that D. tiedjei and Desulfovibrio sp. strain G11 possessed some hydrophobic cell surface properties. These findings are an early step toward understanding the dynamic attachment of anaerobic bacteria in anoxic environments.  (+info)

(8/630) Caught in the middle: should the World Trade Organization settle environmental disputes?

Since its inception in 1995, the World Trade Organization (WTO) has arbitrated trade disputes between its members in part by deciding whether unilateral actions by its 134 member nations such as trade bans or restrictions violate international free trade rules and authorizing penalties against members that are found to be noncompliant with such rules. The WTO is criticized by those who believe its emphasis on free trade undermines national environmental and public health protection efforts. Recent disputes over the importation of hormone-treated beef and genetically modified crops have focused attention on how the WTO arbitrates disputes having environmental and public health implications and sparked criticisms as to whether the organization is qualified to do so.  (+info)

How do environmental factors affect memory and how does loud music interfere with memory?


  • How do environmental factors affect memory and how does loud music interfere with memory?
  • I've never heard of loud music interfering with memory, but environmental factors like pollution and poisons, like lead and mercury can affect memory and brain function. It's especially important where young children may be exposed because it affects them most of all.


What is the environmental impact when it comes to eating animals versus being a vegan?


  • What is the environmental impact of cattle raising versus agriculture?
  • First off, if you're looking at a vegan vs a carnivore's impact on the env. - It's not just the cattle industry - it's also chickens for both meat and eggs), pigs, even farm raised fish. Now, even if you look at things in the best possible light - ie the carnivore is eating locally and organically raised meat, drinking local organic milk and eating local organic eggs as well as veggies - and the vegan is eating non-organic veggies from who knows where - I think the vegan still has less of an impact. If the vegan is also eating only locally raised organic fruits and veggies - there's no way the carnivore can come close to lowering their environmental impact to the that of the vegan's. Animals take waaaay more energy and resources to raise than veggies - it's just that simple.


Does pollution really cause people to grow moles on their body, like for example the leg?


  • My mother said that because of the ozone layer, something about pollution in them, do people get moles on their leg for example because of that? I've seen a couple of people with moles on their leg, even with red spots. What causes red spots? Sores!? I don't know what caused these things to come about in the first place and I really hope it's not really because we have cars on the road. That would be weird.
  • she is talking about uv light pollution, since there are thin spots in the ozone layer, uv light from the sun that normally get filtered out make it to the troposphere, where we live. Since certain types of uv light cause cancer, you have a higher probability of contracting skin cancer, which manifests by creating moles. fyi if you have an exceptionally large mole, or it is irregular in shape, or if it starts to grow rapidly, go see a dermatologist to have it checked out.


What are the environmental responsibilities we have as hairdressers?


  • Because salons use to many harsh chemicals and the large amount of pollution salons generate... What are things salons can do to help the environment a bit?
  • he most common way salons go green is by choosing eco-friendly hair products and other beauty treatments. It is estimated that the average woman is exposed to 200 chemicals every day from beauty products alone, including neurotoxins and endocrine disruptors. These chemicals are especially dangerous for young children, pregnant women, and people with chemical sensitivities. Most eco-friendly salons use gentle, natural hair and body products chosen to minimize impact on human health and the environment. Reduce, reuse, recycle is a way of life for many green salons. Whenever possible, green salons use products in reusable, recyclable, or biodegradable packages, and most print brochures and other promotional materials on recycled paper with eco-friendly ink. Many eco-friendly salons protect customers and staff from fumes and other hazardous substances by installing air filtration systems and using building materials and furnishings that minimize VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds). In addition to building materials and furnishings, some eco salons also use sustainable equipment, such as bamboo brushes and combs, and green cleaning services or products.

You can prevent water pollution of nearby rivers and lakes as well as groundwater and drinking water by following some simple guidelines in your everyday life. Conserve water by turning off the tap when running water is not necessary. This helps prevent water shortages and reduces the amount f contaminated water that needs treatment. Be careful about what you throw down your sink or toilet. Don't throw paints, oils or other forms of litter down the drain. Use environmentally household products, such as washing powder, household cleaning agents and toiletries. Take great care not to overuse pesticides and fertilisers. This will prevent runoffs of the material into nearby water sources. By having more plants in your garden you are preventing fertiliser, pesticides and contaminated water from running off into nearby water sources. Don't throw litter into rivers, lakes or oceans.

How far would city pollution affect my lungs while exercising?

Is there any environmental precautions to prevent an outbreak of staphylococcus food poisoning?


  • Is there any environmental precautions to prevent an outbreak of staphylococcus food poisoning besides the proper preparation of meats and milk based foods?
  • I am not sure, it depends on the environment the food is prepared on, possibly if it is in a cooler area the bacteria might not reproduce so much, or if it is in a dry climate it could reduce the numbers. There are not very many, there would still be outbreaks even if there was cool, dry climates. It would be much worse if it was hot and humid. But the proper pasteurizing, freezing and cooking food well, and disinfecting and sanitizing and cleaning up the mess would be the best way to prevent it.
