*  Kansas Governor Rejects Two Coal-Fired Power Plants
... TOPEKA, Kansas, March 21, 2008 ENS - Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius today vetoed legislation that would have overturned a decision of her administration to deny an permit application to build two new coal-fired power plants because of the greenhouse gases they would have produced. Last October Secretary of Kansas Department of Health and Environment Rob Bremby denied a permit to regional wholesale power supplier Sunflower Electric Power Corporation to build two new power plants at its Holcomb Station in western Kansas. The bill Sebelius vetoed today would have permitted the power plants and stripped the state agency of the power to deny such permits in the future if they held utilities to standards stricter than those in the federal Clean Air Act. "And that is why I supported the decision of the Secretary of Kansas Department of Health and Environment regarding Kansas' energy future. The utility contends that by not allowing the coal-fired plants to be built, the governor will make Kansans pay more fo...

Earlier this month, President Obama's Environmental Protection Agency issued a formal declaration that global warming pollution is a threat to public health and welfare -- something that the rest of us have known for a long, long time. The way is cleared for the Clean Air Act to become a crucial weapon in our fight to stop climate change. The Obama administration is now in a position to regulate global warming pollution without having to wait for Congress which has been lured into writing weak climate policies by industry lobbyists with deep pockets. Coal-fired power plants are by far the largest producer of global warming pollution in the U.S., and Obama's EPA is now considering a rule that would finally allow these pollution-belching smoke stacks to be regulated. 28 on Obama's plan to regulate greenhouse gases from coal-fired plants and other big pollu...

Black Hills Corp. has awarded Babcock & Wilcox Co., a subsidiary of McDermott International Inc., a $100 million design-build contract for Wygen Unit 1, an 80 Mw coal-fired power plant near Gillette, Wyoming. Babcock & Wilcox B&W said the plant will be the only new-capacity pulverized coal-fired power plant under contract in the US. Wygen will be the fourth coal-fired plant at Black Hill's energy complex which includes the 80 Mw Neil Simpson Unit 2. The 330 Mw Wyodak Unit 1, owned primarily by PacifiCorp, was completed in 1978. The new unit will consume 500,000 tonnes/year of low-sulfur sub-bituminous coal from Wyodak mine, operated by Wyodak Resources Development Corp. It is scheduled for operation in July 2003. The construction of Wygen Unit I highlights the critical role of coal as a fuel for electric power expansion programs, especially with the high cost and uncertainty of natural gas, said B&W Pres.

Excess steam and heat from the power plant can be used in producing ethanol. Cellulosic Ethanol and Power Plant Co-Location: Savings in Synergy - Ethanol Producer Magazine : "Our process modeling showed that in situations where a green electricity premium of $30 per MWh is charged, an ethanol price of approximately $2.10 per gallon before any ethanol subsidies is the break-even point for a co-location producer. Ethanol prices above this amount will allow the producer to make more money producing ethanol from just the cellulose and hemicellulose and burning the lignin separately for power than by burning the whole biomass feedstock.".

Environmental Issues > International Issues Main Page > All International Issues Documents Summary of Recent Mercury Emission Limits for Power Plants in the United States and China. Both China and the United States have adopted landmark standards to curb mercury emissions among other pollutants as well from power plants, addressing the largest global source of mercury air pollution. Globally, coal-fired power plants are the largest source of mercury emissions, with China and the United States contributing a significant portion. In China, power plant emissions standards are expected to deliver mercury reductions in 2015, mainly through controls for other air pollutants, but nevertheless significant. In the U.S., significant mercury reductions are expected from coal-fired power plants beginning in 2016. International Issues Main Page.

... Supreme Court will hear Texas-EPA dispute over power plant emissions Posted on June 24, 2013. By Matthew Tresaugue Print. Supreme Court decided Monday to take a case that has pitted Texas against the Obama administration over a federal rule aimed at reducing air pollution that crosses state borders. Solicitor General Donald Verrilli argued that the appeals court’s decision “hobbles the agency … where the need for a strong federal role is most critical.” The justices accepted the EPA’s appeal of the lower court’s opinion and will hear the case in the term that begins in October. Led by Texas, 14 states and several power companies challenged the legality of the Cross-State Air Pollution Rule, which imposes caps on nitrogen oxide and sulfur dioxide from coal-fired power plants in eastern states. The EPA has said the rule is necessary to reduce lung-damaging pollution that causes thousands of premature deaths and respiratory illnesses each year around the power plants and in downwind states. To comply with t...

Power plants that use natural gas and a new technology to squeeze more energy from the fuel release far less of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide than coal-fired power plants do, according to a new analysis accepted for publication Jan. 8 in Earth s Future, a journal of the American Geophysical Union. The so-called combined cycle natural gas power plants also release significantly less nitrogen oxides and sulfur dioxide, which can worsen air quality. Since more and more of our electricity is coming from these cleaner power plants, emissions from the power sector are lower by 20, 30 even 40 percent for some gases since 1997, said lead author Joost de Gouw, an atmospheric scientist with NOAA s Cooperative Institute for Research in Environment...

A large amount of 'clean' power Belo Monte has a planned capacity of 11,200 megawatts, meaning that only two other power stations on Earth are more powerful: the Three Gorges Dam in China and the Itaipu power station on the border between Brazil and Paraguay. After all, once they have been built, large hydroelectric power stations generate electricity for decades with very little impact on the climate. "When compared to large coal-fired or nuclear power stations, large hydroelectric power stations always emerge with compelling climate-related and environmental credentials,” says Cicero Bley, Coordinator of the Brazilian Observatory for Renewable Energy, with conviction.

... The 'Devil's Gate-Weber Hydroelectric Power Plant' was built in 1909-1910 on the Weber River of northeastern Utah, USA, about 10mi southeast of Ogden, Utah. It was built by the Utah Light and Railway Company under the direction of E.H. Work had begun on an intake structure in Weber Canyon in the early 1900s at the Devil's Gate location under the direction of C.K. Bannister's plan for a hydroelectric station was contested by the Union Pacific, whose line ran through the canyon. Harriman died in 1914 and the UL&P became the locally owned Utah Light and Traction Company, which leased the station to the Utah Power and Light Company. The intake structure is between the sluice gate and the south buttress wall, housed in a small wood frame intake house.A one-story wood-frame watchman's house is just downstream from the intake house, and is joined to the intake house. The power plant intake conduit is a 74in diameter reinforced concrete pipe for the first 125ft, transitioning to a welded steel pipe. This replace...

Tue Sep 04 2001 at 14:32:31. Hydroelectric power is usually considered 'clean'. Generated from dam s along rivers, there are no billowing smokestacks of black smoke to mark damage to the environment. Nor must we fear nuclear radiation from Chernobyl or Three-mile Island type accidents. But dams do harm the environment. This has been recognized in the United States where, since 1986, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission gives equal weight to environmental and energy concerns when licensing or relicensing hydroelectric power facilities. The reason is that dams change rivers. Older dams especially make it difficult for fish to move to their natural/optimal spawning grounds. Dams also increase water temperatures, decrease oxygen levels, and prevent the natural flow of silt, debris, and nutrients. Dams are built to regulate the flow ...

EPA to Reduce New Power Plants Carbon Pollution. Advertisement. Events. Advertisement. Advertisement. EPA to Reduce New Power Plants Carbon Pollution. WASHINGTON AP — The Obama administration will press ahead on Tuesday with the first-ever limits on heat-trapping pollution from new power plants, ignoring protests from Republicans who have said the regulation will raise electricity prices and kill off coal, a dominant U.S. But the proposal, which was outlined to the Associated Press by administration officials, also will fall short of environmentalists' hopes because it goes easier than it could have on coal-fired power — one of the largest sources of the gases blamed for global warming. Older coal-fired power plants have already been shutting down across the country, thanks to low natural gas prices, demand from China and weaker demand for electricity. The proposed rule will not apply to existing power plants or new ones built in the next year. It will also give future coal-fired power plants years to meet th...

Ed Walker, R-Billings, warned of dire consequences if Montana adopts the Environmental Protection Agency s nationwide regulations limiting mercury from coal-fired power plants: Our electricity rates will skyrocket, power plants will shut down they won t have time to comply, and the reliability of our electric grid will be compromised. Furthermore, he argues that the EPA s regulations are redundant and will do little to improve our health or the environment. Montanans will likely see little change in their electric rates because of national regulations, nor will they see any power plant closures.

The rules target the emissions from coal-fired power plants. Stack emissions from power plants were not regulated for most of these toxins until this ruling. So we’re mostly concerned about the effects on humans, and particularly pregnant women and children who eat fish high in methylmercury,” says Noelle Selin, assistant professor of engineering systems and atmospheric chemistry at MIT, who studies distribution and health effects of mercury.

EPA official: Carbon rules for existing power plants ‘on the table’ in 2014. EPA Administrator Bob Perciasepe said on a call with reporters Wednesday that the agency would collaborate with states to curb greenhouse gases from existing power plants in an effort that would start in fiscal 2014. On the call to discuss EPA's new budget proposal, Perciasepe said the agency continues to review comments on its proposed new source performance standard for future power plants. He added, "But that's certainly something that will be on the table in this next fiscal year.". But former EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson and EPA air chief Gina McCarthy, who has been nominated to replace her, spent much of last year repeating that they had "no plans" to regulate existing power plant emissions. The rule for future power plants is also controversial, as it would limit all facilities to 1,000 pounds per megawatt-hour of carbon dioxide, a level that is easily achievable by natural gas plants but that would require coal plants to ev...

Combined heat and power Alternatives to fossil fuel power plants Relative cost by generation source. In a fossil fuel power plant the chemical energy stored in fossil fuels such as coal, fuel oil, natural gas or oil shale and oxygen of the air is converted successively into thermal energy, mechanical energy and, finally, electrical energy. Most thermal power station s in the world use fossil fuel, outnumbering nuclear, geothermal, biomass, or solar thermal plants. In the 1990s was the dash for gas where 30 gas-fired power stations were built in Britain due to plentiful gas supplies from North Sea oil wells. Of the fossil fuels, coal is much more carbon intensive than oil or natural gas, resulting in greater volumes of carbon dioxide emissions per unit of electricity generated.

... 'Athlone Power Station' was a coal-fired power station in Athlone, Cape Town, South Africa. The power station was commissioned in 1962 with 6 turbines with a nominal capacity of 180 megawatt s, and operated by the City of Cape Town. 1 Between 1985 and 1994 the station was held on standby, but it resumed generating in 1995 with a reduced capacity of 120 MW. Between 1995 and 2003 it was mainly used to generate power in peak demand periods and during power failures of the national grid. In 2003, significant investment was required due to the age of the power station, and generation was stopped. 2 The site is in the process of being decommissioned. 3 Athlone is the last coal-fired power station still standing in Cape Town; the others, in the city centre and Salt River, were demolished in the 1980s and 1990s. The cost of transport means that coal costs three to five times more in Cape Town than it does near the mines inland; this makes it more economical to transmit power from there to Cape Town than to gener...

(1/308) Genome reduction in a hemiclonal frog Rana esculenta from radioactively contaminated areas.

A decrease in genome size was found in the hemiclonal hybridogenetic frog Rana esculenta (R. ridibunda x R. lessonae) from areas of radioactive contamination that resulted from the Chernobyl fallout. This genome reduction was of up to 4% and correlated with the background level of gamma-radiation (linear regression corresponded on average to -0.4% per doubling of radiation level). No change in genome size was observed in the coexisting parental species R. lessonae. There was no correlation between genome size and body mass in R. esculenta froglets, which have metamorphosed in the year of the study. The hemiclonal forms may become a suitable object for study on biological significance of individual DNA sequences (and of genome size as a whole) because mutant animals with deletions in a specified genome can arise after a low radiation dose. The proneness to genetic damage makes such forms also a prospective bioindicator of radioactive (and possibly other mutagenic) pollution with the effects of genetic damage conveniently and rapidly monitored by DNA flow cytometry.  (+info)

These point sources included a coal-fired electric power plant and a chemical company. Conversely, the Blackwater River's headwaters and most of its length flow within a state park. Although there is some development on the lower part of the Blackwater River, fish were collected in the more pristine upper regions. Fish were captured by electroshocking and were maintained in aerated coolers. Physical measurements were obtained, blood was taken, and liver and gonads were removed. LMB plasma was assayed for the concentration of 17ss-estradiol (E2) and testosterone using validated radioimmunoassays. The presence of vitellogenin was determined by gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE) and Western blotting using a monoclonal antibody validated for largemouth bass vitellogenin. No differences in plasma concentrations of E2 or testosterone were observed in females from the two sites. Similarly, males exhibited no difference in plasma E2. However, plasma testosterone was lower in the males from the contaminated site, as compared to the reference site. Vitellogenic males occurred only at the contaminated site. Additionally, liver mass was proportionately higher in males from the contaminated site, as compared to males from the reference site. These data suggest that reproductive steroid levels may have been altered by increased hepatic enzyme activity, and the presence of vitellogenic males indicates that an exogenous source of estrogen was present in the Escambia River.  (+info)

(3/308) 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)

(4/308) Juvenile hypothyroidism among two populations exposed to radioiodine.

We found an epidemic of juvenile hypothyroidism among a population of self-defined "downwinders" living near the Hanford nuclear facility located in southeast Washington State. The episode followed massive releases of 131I. Self-reported data on 60 cases of juvenile hypothyroidism (<20 years of age) among a group of 801 Hanford downwinders are presented, as well as data concerning the thyroid status of approximately 160,000 children exposed to radioiodine before 10 years of age as a result of the 26 April 1986 Chernobyl explosion in the former Soviet Union. These children were residents of five regions near Chernobyl. They were examined by standardized screening protocols over a period of 5 years from 1991 to 1996. They are a well-defined group of 10 samples. Fifty-six cases of hypothyroidism were found among boys and 92 among girls. Body burdens of 137Cs have been correlated with hypothyroidism prevalence rates. On the other hand, the group of juvenile (<20 years of age) Hanford downwinders is not a representative sample. Most of the 77 cases of juvenile hypothyroidism in the Hanford group were diagnosed from 1945 to 1970. However, the ratio of reported cases to the county population under 20 years of age is roughly correlated with officially estimated mean levels of cumulative thyroid 131I uptake in these counties, providing evidence that juvenile hypothyroidism was associated with radioiodine exposures. Because even subtle hypothyroidism may be of clinical significance in childhood and can be treated, it may be useful to screen for the condition in populations exposed to radioiodine fallout. Although radiation exposure is associated with hypothyroidism, its excess among fallout-exposed children has not been previously quantified.  (+info)

(5/308) Carotenoids, sexual signals and immune function in barn swallows from Chernobyl.

Carotenoids have been hypothesized to facilitate immune function and act as free-radical scavengers, thereby minimizing the frequency of mutations. Populations of animals exposed to higher levels of free radicals are thus expected to demonstrate reduced sexual coloration if use of carotenoids for free-radical scavenging is traded against use for sexual signals. The intensity of carotenoid-based sexual coloration was compared among three populations of barn swallows Hirundo rustica differing in exposure to radioactive contamination. Lymphocyte and immunoglobulin concentrations were depressed, whereas the heterophil:lymphocyte ratio, an index of stress, was enhanced in Chernobyl swallows compared to controls. Spleen size was reduced in Chernobyl compared to that of two control populations. Sexual coloration varied significantly among populations, with the size of a secondary sexual character (the length of the outermost tail feathers) being positively related to coloration in the two control populations, but not in the Chernobyl population. Thus the positive covariation between coloration and sexual signalling disappeared in the population subject to intense radioactive contamination. These findings suggest that the reliable signalling function of secondary sexual characters breaks down under extreme environmental conditions, no longer providing reliable information about the health status of males.  (+info)

(6/308) Radiation and mortality of workers at Oak Ridge National Laboratory: positive associations for doses received at older ages.

We examined associations between low-level exposure to ionizing radiation and mortality among 14,095 workers hired at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory between 1943 and 1972. Workers at the facility were individually monitored for external exposure to ionizing radiation and have been followed through 1990 to ascertain cause of death information. Positive associations were observed between low-level exposure to external ionizing radiation and mortality. These associations were larger for doses received after 45 years of age, larger under longer lag assumptions, and primarily due to cancer causes of death. All cancer mortality was estimated to increase 4.98% [standard error (SE) = 1.5] per 10-mSv cumulative dose received after age 45 under a 10-year lag, and 7.31% (SE = 2.2) per 10-mSv cumulative dose received after age 45 under a 20-year lag. Associations between radiation dose and lung cancer were of similar magnitude to associations between radiation dose and all cancers except lung cancer. Nonmalignant respiratory disease exhibited a positive association with cumulative radiation dose received after age 45, whereas ischemic heart disease exhibited no association with radiation dose. These findings suggest increases in cancer mortality associated with low-level external exposure to ionizing radiation and potentially greater sensitivity to the carcinogenic effects of ionizing radiation with older ages at exposure.  (+info)

(7/308) Childhood exposure due to the Chernobyl accident and thyroid cancer risk in contaminated areas of Belarus and Russia.

The thyroid dose due to 131I releases during the Chernobyl accident was reconstructed for children and adolescents in two cities and 2122 settlements in Belarus, and in one city and 607 settlements in the Bryansk district of the Russian Federation. In this area, which covers the two high contamination spots in the two countries following the accident, data on thyroid cancer incidence during the period 1991-1995 were analysed in the light of possible increased thyroid surveillance. Two methods of risk analysis were applied: Poisson regression with results for the single settlements and Monte Carlo (MC) calculations for results in larger areas or sub-populations. Best estimates of both methods agreed well. Poisson regression estimates of 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were considerably smaller than the MC results, which allow for extra-Poisson uncertainties due to reconstructed doses and the background thyroid cancer incidence. The excess absolute risk per unit thyroid dose (EARPD) for the birth cohort 1971-1985 by the MC analysis was 2.1 (95% CI 1.0-4.5) cases per 10(4) person-year Gy. The point estimate is lower by a factor of two than that observed in a pooled study of thyroid cancer risk after external exposures. The excess relative risk per unit thyroid dose was 23 (95% CI 8.6-82) Gy(-1). No significant differences between countries or cities and rural areas were found. In the lowest dose group of the settlements with an average thyroid dose of 0.05 Gy the risk was statistically significantly elevated. Dependencies of risks on age-at-exposure and on gender are consistent with findings after external exposures.  (+info)

(8/308) The transcription coactivator HTIF1 and a related protein are fused to the RET receptor tyrosine kinase in childhood papillary thyroid carcinomas.

Children exposed to radioactive iodine as a consequence of the Chernobyl reactor accident have an increased risk of papillary thyroid carcinomas (PTC). The predominant molecular lesions in these tumors are rearrangements of the RET receptor tyrosine kinase (tk). Here we report on two novel types of RET rearrangement, PTC6 and 7, and describe the fusion products and the ret fused gene (rfg) proteins. Like the other rfg proteins identified so far they are ubiquitously expressed, not membrane-bound and contain coiled coil domains required for constitutive activation of the ret tk domain. In the PTC6 rearrangement the ret tk domain is fused to the aminoterminal part of the human transcription intermediary factor htif 1. In the PTC7 rearrangement the ret tk domain is fused to a novel protein that is strongly related to htif1. Like htif1 it contains a RBCC motif (ring finger, B boxes, coiled coil domain) located in the aminoterminal part and a phd finger and a bromodomain in the carboxyterminal part. Htif1 and related proteins are transcription coactivators for nuclear receptors, thus participating in controlling cellular development, differentiation and homeostasis. This is the first report on their involvement in human thyroid carcinogenesis.  (+info)

What are the dangers of nuclear power plants?


I'm doing a research paper on this and would like to get some straight answers from anyone that's a scientist and no big business. Any scientists out there that can help me?
----------

Very few dangers in this day and age - we don't do nuclear fission like the Russians did back in Chernobyl. We usually boil water with uranium rods and use the steam to conduct electricity in accelerators. It's a very clean and safe form of energy - but it took a lot of mistakes in the research to get where we are today.

France has the most Nuke Power plants in the world and they are all extremely green and safe.


What does "Water near power plants" have to do with contracting fatal Amoeba?


An article in the los angeles times about a 9 year old boy who died tragically after contracting amoeba from swimming in a lake... This article listed avoiding water close to power plants as a means of avoiding this.... How so?
----------

I remember a episode of Walker Texas Ranger where a company was dumping toxic chemicals down river of a reservation, killing the kids swimming in the water.  No correlation to this, but it gives me insight on the bad acting of the people dying from the amoeba in real life.

But your answer is this.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thermal_pollution

Power plants using the water as coolant, thermally change the waters natural temperature, killing everything - except... the brain eating amoeba that love it.  Which makes it a possiblilty, I guess sort of like when you have a pool of stagnant water and misquito's come out of it.  Eventually someone will say "hey, dont jump into that stagnant pool, it isnt a herbal wrap... its a misquito pit"..  Atleast thats the answer I'm finding, its a uniquely specific thought .. "don't swim in that water near power plants".    Then again, the back of the stroller at the mall had a bag smaller than a gallon sized zip lock on the back made of cloth that said "do not put child in bag". - See picture http://i38.tinypic.com/28s85x.jpg .

Does anybody ever have dreams about nuclear power plants/bombs/missles. . etc....?


I have been having a lot of nightmares about the local nuclear power plant having a melt down and blowing up, missles flying and landing here, and stuff like that for a couple years now. sometimes i have those dreams for weeks straight! Am I the only one that has these dreams, and could they be prophetic?? I hope they aren't but they are SO vivid and real.
----------

I always had dreams like that when I was a kid.  Probably because that was one of my greatest fears.  It is probably one of your fears too, especially because after 9/11 they were always talking about the possibility of terrorists accessing nuclear power plants.  Can you move?  I would if I was you, just in case.  But I really think it is more about what your fears are than any kind of ESP thing.

Can being close to a power plant cause headaches/eye pain while viewing movies on my LCD?


I've been getting terrible pains in my eyes and headaches when watching movies on   LCD monitor. My auntie lives very close to a power plant and I spend a lot of time there. Can the rays that are coming from the LCD be stronger cause of the power plant?
----------

Do you wear eye glasses or contact lense to correct your vision?

Eye-related headaches typically occur after extended periods of reading, watching television, computer work, or other close work that requires intense concentration.  This type of headache usually disappears after a period of rest.  In some cases, headaches may be caused by eyestrain related to eyeglasses.  A tendency for the eyes to cross or drift outward may also bring on headaches.

One eye problem known to cause an intense headache is angle-closure glaucoma.  With this type of glaucoma, the headache is only part of the problem.  Patients suffering from an angle-closure attack also may experience nausea, intense pain around the eye, blurred vision, and haloes around lights.  

Headaches caused by eye disease are unique in their symptoms and types of pain.  It is important to make detailed notes of your symptoms, type of pain, lifestyle and what you were doing when the headache began.  This information is very helpful to the physician to diagnose the type and cause of the headache you are experiencing.

The symptoms from headaches can be extremely variable and depend on the underlying problem.  Because of the scope of the various types and causes is so immense, the following the headaches are described with the typical symptoms as they relate to the eye.

Headaches related to eye fatigue:

Headaches that begin after an extended period of reading, computer use, watching television, or close work 

Burning eyes 

Fatigue 

Migraines

Throbbing pain 

Sensitivity to light and sound 

Nausea and vomiting 

Visual "aura" including:  light flashes, jagged lights, missing areas of vision 

Acute angle-closure glaucoma

Intense headache that is usually centralized over brow area 

Nausea and vomiting 

Glare or haloes around lights 

Stress relief, control of blood pressure, or medication to maintain appropriate hormonal levels may be necessary.  New glasses or different work lighting may be prescribed by your doctor.

If you have persistent headaches, it is important to consult your medical doctor about them for a medical evaluation.
