Wendy Koch, USA TODAY Prodded by health and environmental advocates, Wal-Mart announced Thursday that it will require suppliers to disclose and eventually phase out nearly 10 hazardous chemicals from the fragrances, cosmetics, household cleaners and personal care products at its stores. Wal-Mart joins an industry shift away from potentially toxic chemicals in consumer products. Last year, Johnson Johnson pledged to remove those two chemicals, along with formaldehyde and parabens, from its personal care products worldwide. As it moves forward, she said, Wal-Mart will share best practices with other members of the Sustainability Consortium, a group of companies including Procter Gamble that aim to reduce the environmental toll of global consumption. Because of its market dominance, she says, Wal-Mart can "shift the whole industry." In Apri...

... . The Industrial Hygiene Perspective. From the point of view of industrial hygiene, what are the hazardous work processes. Within each process, what are the chemical exposures. the first step to be taken in a preventive program in occupational health is the identification or recognition of potential health hazards. Mastery of this process is based on thorough knowledge of industrial materials and processes. Without this knowledge it is difficult for the surveyor to identify those industrial processes that have the potential to cause occupational disease. Linking Industrial Processes to Hazardous Chemicals: An Example. The following two tables, based on Recognition of Health Hazards in Industry by William A.

. Apple bans hazardous chemicals used to make iPhone screens nice and shiny. By John Brownlee • 5:20 am, August 14, 2014. Share on Facebook Share on Twitter. News. In the past, the chemicals benzene and n-hexane, which are chemicals that make your iPhone screen so shiny, have been said to cause health problems for factory workers breathing in the fume. But Apple has just announced that as of the iPhone 6, these complaints will be a thing of the past, as they are banning the use of the chemicals across their entire assembly line. The announcement is the result of a four month investigation into how the chemicals impacted the health of 500,000 factory workers who assemble Apple’s iPhones and iPads. Although Cupertino says that during the course of this investigation it found no evidence that the chemicals posed any hazard, they’d rather be safe than sorry, which is why they will no longer use the chemicals across their supply chain. Whether there is conclusive proof or not about the damage caused by being exp...

In either case, however, the semiconductor industry's assault on contamination is continuing on many fronts—from product isolation, to improved process equipment and filtration systems, to the sourcing and control of airborne molecular contamination AMC. When designing any minienvironment system, Sumner says one should first determine whether the system is going to exhaust the airflow directly into the ambient fab air or into a dedicated exhaust system, or whether there will be a need for a recirculation system to control particulate or AMC contamination. Referring to exhaust ventilation and to Semi S2-0703 covering the design of semiconductor manufacturing tools and the control of potential chemical exposures: Environmental, Health, and Safety Guideline for Semiconductor Manufac-turing Equipment, Frist notes that "section 22 suggests that equipment exhaust ventilation be designed to prevent potentially hazardous chemical exposures to employees under three types of operating conditions:.

Whoever stole some discarded equipment from outside a pathology lab may have gotten more than he or she bargained for. Orlando police say the equipment, worth about $500,000, is contaminated with a substance that could eat away at human skin. A pickup hauling a trailer pulled up to Florida Hospital Center for Diagnostic Pathology, 2855 N. Orange Ave., on May 3 and took the equipment from an enclosed area near a large garbage bin, police said. The theft was not reported until Friday, said St. Vince Ogburn, a police spokesman. Officers said they think the thief or thieves wanted the equipment for its value at a recycling center. A slide stainer and a machine that analyzes slide specimens are among the items that were taken. One machine looks similar to a copier with space for vials at the bottom. Investigators ask anyo...

(1/726) Bioterrorism alleging use of anthrax and interim guidelines for management--United States, 1998.

From October 30 through December 23, 1998, CDC received reports of a series of bioterroristic threats of anthrax exposure. Letters alleged to contain anthrax were sent to health clinics on October 30, 1998, in Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee. During December 17-23 in California, a letter alleged to contain anthrax was sent to a private business, and three telephone threats of anthrax contamination of ventilation systems were made to private and public buildings. All threats were hoaxes and are under investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and local law enforcement officials. The public health implications of these threats were investigated to assist in developing national public health guidelines for responding to bioterrorism. This report summarizes the findings of these investigations and provides interim guidance for public health authorities on bioterrorism related to anthrax.  (+info)

(2/726) The marginalization of hormesis.

Despite the substantial development and publication of highly reproducible toxicological data, the concept of hormetic dose-response relationships was never integrated into the mainstream of toxicological thought. Review of the historical foundations of the interpretation of the bioassay and assessment of competitive theories of dose-response relationships lead to the conclusion that multiple factors contributed to the marginalization of hormesis during the middle and subsequent decades of the 20th Century. These factors include the following: (a) the close association of hormesis with homeopathy, which led to the hostility of modern medicine toward homeopathy, thereby creating a guilt-by-association framework, and the carryover influence of that hostility toward hormesis in the judgements of medically based pharmacologists/toxicologists; (b) the emphasis of high-dose effects linked with a lack of appreciation of the significance of the implications of low-dose stimulatory effects; (c) the lack of an evolution-based mechanism(s) to account for hormetic effects; and (d) lack of appropriate scientific advocates to counter aggressive and intellectually powerful critics of the hormetic perspective.  (+info)

(3/726) Chemical hormesis: its historical foundations as a biological hypothesis.

Despite the long history of hormesis-related experimental research, no systematic effort to describe its early history has been undertaken. The present paper attempts to reconstruct and assess the early history of such research and to evaluate how advances in related scientific fields affected the course of hormesis-related research. The purpose of this paper is not only to satisfy this gap in current knowledge but also to provide a foundation for the assessment of how the concept of hormetic dose-response relationships may have affected the nature of the bioassay, especially with respect to hazard assessment practices within a modern risk assessment framework.  (+info)

(4/726) Migration patterns of children with cancer in Britain.

OBJECTIVES: To investigate the early migration patterns of children who later developed cancer. To test a prior hypothesis that some cancers are initiated by early exposures to toxic atmospheric pollutants from point sources. DESIGN: Address changes in children dying from cancer are examined in relation to potentially hazardous sites of several different types. The relative proximities of birth addresses and death addresses to these sites, are compared. The approach is based upon the premise that a local exposure, effective only at an early age, must be preferentially linked with an early address. SETTING AND SUBJECTS: Records of 22,458 children dying from leukaemia or other cancer under the age of 16 years in Great Britain between 1953 and 1980: including 9224 who moved house between birth and death. The migration analysis was based upon birth and death addresses, converted first to postcodes and thence to map coordinates. The geographical locations of potentially toxic industrial sites were obtained through direct map searches and from commercial directories. RESULTS: Systematic asymmetries were found between measured distances from birth and death addresses to sources emitting volatile organic compounds, or using large scale combustion processes. The children had more often moved away from these hazards than towards them. Many of the sources had already been identified as hazardous using other methods. There was also a birth association with areas of dense habitation; possibly because of unidentified toxic sources contained within them. All forms of cancer were involved although some effluents were associated preferentially with specific types. CONCLUSIONS: The main findings of an earlier study, based upon a different and independent method, were confirmed. Proximities to several types of industrial source, around the time of birth, were followed by a raised risk of childhood cancer. Combustion products and volatile organic compounds were especially implicated. Within the 16 year limit of the study, the increased risk did not decay with advancing age. Low atmospheric concentrations of many carcinogenic substances suggest that the mother acts as a cumulative filter and passes them to the fetus across the placenta or in breast milk.  (+info)

(5/726) Emergency planning and the acute toxic potency of inhaled ammonia.

Ammonia is present in agriculture and commerce in many if not most communities. This report evaluates the toxic potency of ammonia, based on three types of data: anecdotal data, in some cases predating World War 1, reconstructions of contemporary industrial accidents, and animal bioassays. Standards and guidelines for human exposure have been driven largely by the anecdotal data, suggesting that ammonia at 5,000-10,000 parts per million, volume/volume (ppm-v), might be lethal within 5-10 min. However, contemporary accident reconstructions suggest that ammonia lethality requires higher concentrations. For example, 33,737 ppm-v was a 5-min zero-mortality value in a major ammonia release in 1973 in South Africa. Comparisons of secondary reports of ammonia lethality with original sources revealed discrepancies in contemporary sources, apparently resulting from failure to examine old documents or accurately translate foreign documents. The present investigation revealed that contemporary accident reconstructions yield ammonia lethality levels comparable to those in dozens of reports of animal bioassays, after adjustment of concentrations to human equivalent concentrations via U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) procedures. Ammonia levels potentially causing irreversible injury or impairing the ability of exposed people to escape from further exposure or from coincident perils similarly have been biased downwardly in contemporary sources. The EPA has identified ammonia as one of 366 extremely hazardous substances subject to community right-to-know provisions of the Superfund Act and emergency planning provisions of the Clean Air Act. The Clean Air Act defines emergency planning zones (EPZs) around industrial facilities exceeding a threshold quantity of ammonia on-site. This study suggests that EPZ areas around ammonia facilities can be reduced, thereby also reducing emergency planning costs, which will vary roughly with the EPZ radius squared.  (+info)

(6/726) Health and safety practices among farmers and other workers: a needs assessment.

The development of appropriate health and safety interventions for farmers and agri-workers is important world-wide but data on present practices and attitudes to change are lacking. A representative quota sample (n = 1,938) of the Irish population was surveyed on lifestyle practices and workplace risk assessment and control measures, in relation to chemical exposure, manual handling and machinery. Focus group discussions were conducted also with 47 representatives of national farming organizations. As compared with the general workforce, farmers had a significantly (p < 0.01) lower level of assessment of risk hazards associated with manual handling and machinery. Both farmers and employees in workplaces with less than 20 employees reported a significantly lower level of safety training. Male farmers had a particularly negative health profile with only 18% reporting regular dental checks, 26% practising skin protection and 29% taking regular exercise. Discussions indicated that barriers to change included low perceived susceptibility, lack of time and resources. Mental health issues were particularly highlighted. We conclude farmers differ significantly in many instances from the rest of the workforce in regard to occupational health and safety issues and specific interventions in key areas are required for the agri-sector.  (+info)

(7/726) Hazards of chemical weapons release during war: new perspectives.

The two major threat classes of chemical weapons are mustard gas and the nerve agents, and this has not changed in over 50 years. Both types are commonly called gases, but they are actually liquids that are not remarkably volatile. These agents were designed specifically to harm people by any route of exposure and to be effective at low doses. Mustard gas was used in World War I, and the nerve agents were developed shortly before, during, and after World War II. Our perception of the potency of chemical weapons has changed, as well as our concern over potential effects of prolonged exposures to low doses and potential target populations that include women and children. Many of the toxicologic studies and human toxicity estimates for both mustard and nerve agents were designed for the purpose of quickly developing maximal casualties in the least sensitive male soldier. The "toxicity" of the chemical weapons has not changed, but our perception of "toxicity" has.  (+info)

(8/726) Mass psychogenic illness attributed to toxic exposure at a high school.

BACKGROUND AND METHODS: Mass psychogenic illness may be difficult to differentiate from illness caused by bioterrorism, rapidly spreading infection, or toxic substances. We investigated symptoms attributed to exposure to toxic gas at a high school in Tennessee. In November 1998, a teacher noticed a 'gasoline-like' smell in her classroom, and soon thereafter she had a headache, nausea, shortness of breath, and dizziness. The school was evacuated, and 80 students and 19 staff members went to the emergency room at the local hospital; 38 persons were hospitalized overnight. Five days later, after the school had reopened, another 71 persons went to the emergency room. An extensive investigation was performed by several government agencies. RESULTS: We were unable to find a medical or environmental explanation for the reported illnesses. The persons who reported symptoms on the first day came from 36 classrooms scattered throughout the school. The most frequent symptoms (in this group and the group of people who reported symptoms five days later) were headache, dizziness, nausea, and drowsiness. Blood and urine specimens showed no evidence of carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds, pesticides, polychlorinated biphenyls, paraquat, or mercury. There was no evidence of toxic compounds in the environment. A questionnaire administered a month later showed that the reported symptoms were significantly associated with female sex, seeing another ill person, knowing that a classmate was ill, and reporting an unusual odor at the school. CONCLUSIONS: The illness attributed to toxic exposure had features of mass psychogenic illness - notably, widespread subjective symptoms thought to be associated with environmental exposure to a toxic substance in the absence of objective evidence of an environmental cause. Alleviation of the anxiety surrounding an episode of mass psychogenic illness requires prompt recognition and a detailed investigation.  (+info)


Why does OSHA lag behind in enviornmental health standards.?


The permitted levels of toxic substances in the workplace defined by OSHA hasn't changed in years, in spite of new findings.  Why doesn't OSHA use newer Threshold Limit Values (TLV) for determining permissible levels of hazardous substances?
----------

The leaders in progress are ACGIH and AIHA.  These organizations research and review research in these areas.  On a regular basis, they change standards (the ACGIH 2008 list just came out).  These groups can do it by committee because they are determining GUIDELINES.  OSHA has to implement regulations which is a much bigger hurdle than a committee of scientists agreeing on new numbers.  OSHA also has to not only regulate the numbers, but they also have to write regulations on how to meet the new limits including proving the economic impact.  Bottom line, they could work faster, but with Congress, lobbyists, unions, and everybody else involved, it takes time.  We had the dang helium tax for a hundred years and everyone agreed that was stupid, but Congress did nothing.  These exposure limits are much more of a place for honest disagreement.

Even with all that, the numbers of the different organizations are still >90% the same or near the same (someone from ACGIH may confirm this).  Even ACGIH has been the subject of a lawsuit (see reference) where they had been free to print guidelines in the past.


What are the natural substances in the world that can get me high? And what are the dangers?


I am looking for substances that don't cost too much, and are legal in the United States.
----------

just about anything will get your endorphins going, from sex to intense exercise to great music to profound spiritual experiences

as far as substances go, weed is natural, but cost can be an issue and it's definitely not legal

keep in mind that natural doesn't mean safe... lots of things are natural (like polio virus!) but not safe


What is the best way to deal with a teenager that has substance abuse problems. Any advice?


My friends son is 17 he is abusing substances like marijuana, I can see it, he gets moody and irrational. Any advice mature answers only. He gets abusive to his mum they have tried an intervention officer to try and talk to him, but can't make him see or listen or do anything. He is becoming unbearable for them to live with.
----------

TELL YOUR FRIEND  TO:
1)Create a supportive and stable home environment for the adolescent child. Studies show that children are much more likely to have a substance abuse problem if there is divorce or violence in their home life.

2)Talk to her children and make them feel comfortable enough to confide in you. Open lines of communication are essential in helping to prevent substance abuse because the abuse most likely is the result of another issue in your child's life. If the child feels he can talk to you, it may alleviate some of the pressure in his life.

3)Be a parent first and a friend second. Too many times parents want to be friends with their children and create a permissive environment that lacks proper boundaries. Therefore, a parent must make rules and stick to them even if the adolescent does not like the rules.

If you suspect a substance problem in your adolescent child, consult a counselor to get help.Good luck and God Bless you two always...

What effect can substance use have on a training program?  How can the use of these substances harm a person's physical health?  Mental/emotional health?  Social health?
----------

depends on the type of substance being used - most intoxicants affect motor skills, memory, coordination, etc. . . 

again, intoxicants, for example, work by impairing cognitive function (you can't think normally, so you "feel high" and most of those effects are dealt with by the liver. . the organ that cleans the body of poisons. . other inhaled substances would also harm the lungs, etc.  

and none of it can be too good for your brain!

How unhealthy are substances like sucralose and aspartame?


These substances are added to soda and other eat- and drinkable stuff. Are they really that unhealthy?

Well, aspartame was originally developed to be a drug for peptic ulcers, and sucralose was developed to be an insecticide.

How might the application of heat or substances that dilate blood vessels help relieve soreness in a muscle?


As lactic acid and other substances accumulate in an active muscle, they stimulate pain receptors, and the muscle may feel sore.  How might the application of heat or substances that dilate blood vessels relieve such soreness?
----------

With the application of heat vasodialates (the blood vessels widen) occurs, which allows the blood vessels  to accept more red blood cells "into" the sore areas to pick up any waste that is left over after strenuous activities.
