  • VICE News Tonight: The Risk of Carfentanil

    Overdoses from heroin and other opioids now kill an average of 78 Americans every day. VICE News correspondent Dexter Thomas looked at the growing risks of synthetic opioids by visiting an Ohio county that’s been experiencing an average of 20 to 25 overdoses a day. The Harris County coroner told him the recent overdose spike is likely attributable to carfentanil, a veterinary drug used in elephant tranquilizers. And a DEA chemist said the synthetic opioid is so potent that 2 milligrams could kill 100 people. But a Cincinnati heroin addict said he’s willing to risk exposure to carfentanil, which dealers are using to cut heroin. “It worries me a lot, you know, knowing that it’s out there,” Brandon Harris said. “[But] as an addict, it’s worth the risk.” The DEA confirms carfentanil use is ...

  • Lead Exposure Risks in the Work Environment

    The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) reports that while many people worry about lead in their homes or in the environment, for some the workplace may offer the greatest potential for exposure. Lead is a toxic heavy metal. It can be combined with other metals to produce alloys. Lead and lead alloys are often used to make batteries, ammunition and other metal products. In the past, lead was also used regularly in fuel, paint, ceramics, caulk, pipes and solder among other things. Due to potential health issues from exposure, the amount of lead used in these products today has lessened or has been removed. Though used less often, NIOSH reports that lead is still common in many industries, including construction, mining and manufacturing. In these and other indu...

ANCHOR (OFF-CAM) ENGLISH SAYING: Let me ask you about equities right now. They've had a pretty good run this year. Should investors be reducing exposure even for the long term based on the market's performance? JEROME CLARK, FUND MANAGER, T.ROWE PRICE (ENGLISH) SAYING: Well, yes. The equities have definitely had a run as of late. And we have an asset allocation committee that looks- we meet on a monthly basis, and we'll look at what has happened in the market. For the long term, we would say that investors out there, whether they're in a target-date product or not, should not be reducing their equity allocation. Particularly for the long term, we just think we- the analysis shows that equities just outperform other asset classes over long periods of time. But even with this long run, what you have to- what investors should really also pay attention to is the other side of the equation which is fixed income. And when you look at the very low rates- basically yields are at a, what we consider, pretty close to a floor. And given that, the outlook for fixed income is really challenging for the foreseeable future.

Half the people in the US who eat fish daily exceed the safe dosage of mercury. If you find yourself suffering from mercury poisoning, here's what you need to know to survive. What is it? Mercury poisoning, also known as hydrargyria, is a type of metal poisoning & medical condition caused by exposure to mercury and its compounds. Fish consumption--such as tuna or sushi--is by far the most common cause of mercury poisoning, although it can also be caused by breathing contaminated air, being exposed to mercury vapor--such as in dental restorations--and also from the improper disposal of mercury-containing objects, like thermometers or fluorescent lamps. Where is it located? Mercury poisoning happens everywhere throughout the world, since it's a toxic element found in marine life and is commonly used in everyday items. There are high rates of poisoning in Japan due to their high consumption of seafood. How will it kill you? Exposure to mercury leads to preliminary symptoms that include skin discoloration, swelling, shedding or peeling of the skin, and other effects peripheral neuropathy, such as itching, burning, and pain. It then affects your brain and central nervous system as well as the endocrine system, causing kidney malfunction. It then boosts your risk of heart disease, increases your susceptibility to infection, damages your immune system, and destroys stomach and intestinal cells. How to survive: If you've been exposed to the metal, it's crucial to first identify & remove the source of mercury. Decontamination requires the removal of clothes, washing your skin with soap and water, and flushing your eyes with saline solution. Patients showing severe symptoms from ingestion and high toxicity levels should immediately seek medical help in order to undergo chelation therapy. This is considered the standard of care for the removal of any heavy metals from your body. So which actor on the hit TV show Entourage suffered from mercury poisoning in 2008? Was it Adrian Grenier (or Vincent Chase), Kevin Connolly (or Eric Murphy), or Jeremy Piven (or Ari Gold). If you guessed Jeremy Piven, you're right. Jeremy Piven--who plays the character Ari Gold--suffered from mercury poisoning in late 2008 due to what is believed to have been caused by his habit of consuming fish twice a day for the past 20 years. So would you rather…suffer from mercury poisoning? Or be poisoned by a poison dart frog?

This video discusses some ways you can contract HIV and the risk of each one. People often ask us which sexual practices have a relatively higher risk of HIV transmission and which have a relatively lower risk. This video discusses the estimated risk of HIV transmission for mother-to-child transmission, needle sharing, and for some common sexual practices including anal sex, vaginal sex, and oral sex on men and women. These statistics are just estimates based on the currently available scientific information. The risk of contracting HIV from a partner will also vary at different times during their infection. A person who has contracted HIV is most infectious shortly after they have acquired the virus, known as primary HIV infection. The cited figures here are estimated average risks, and risk of transmitting HIV can be increased or decreased by many other factors. For example, for sexual contact, if either or both partners have other sexually transmitted diseases, the risk of HIV transmission will be increased. Remember, the averages won't help you if you're the one who becomes infected. For example, unprotected insertive oral sex on a man may carry an estimated risk of 1 chance of HIV transmission in 20,000, but if you're the one who gets infected, HIV transmission is still 100% for you. These statistics are not a license to engage in unprotected sex. Rather, they will hopefully help people to realize that all of the sexual practices we've listed carry some risk of HIV transmission, so it's vital if you're sexually active to always practice safer sex techniques such as the use of condoms.

The Nuclear AMRC is exploring the use of cryogenic coolant for civil nuclear machining, with the aim of improving machining efficiency and increasing tool life while minimising the risk of component failure. Cryogenic cooling uses extremely cold gas or liquid to control the heat generated during machining. Benefits can include reduced residual stress and thermal damage, improved surface roughness and longer tool life. Nuclear AMRC machining researchers have installed a carbon dioxide cooling system to the Hermle C60, a flexible five-axis mill-turn centre, and investigating its use in cutting a range of hard-to-machine metals, including steels, titanium and nickel alloys. CO2 can replace conventional coolant for many cutting tasks, and can potentially benefit processes which are usually run dry. The ChilAire Aero system delivers a controlled stream of carbon dioxide gas and CO2 ice particles through the machine spindle or external nozzles. As it expands, the CO2 reaches temperatures as low as –78°C. This is not as cold as temperatures achieved with liquid nitrogen, the standard for cryogenic cooling, but is more controllable and reduces the risk of adverse material effects. Initial research is benchmarking carbon dioxide against conventional coolant, and seek to understand how it behaves under different application modes, flow rates, pressures and machining parameters. Carbon dioxide avoids the chemical hazards of conventional coolants, and can be used in non-enclosed portable machining tools, but the gas does bring its own risks in the workplace. The Nuclear AMRC has introduced additional safety measures around the Hermle during trials, including CO2 alarms and personal exposure monitors.

High sunlight | High sunlight exposure may cut myopia in adulthood http://en.prothom-alo.com/lifestyle/news/131289/High-sunlight-exposure-may-cut-myopia-in-adulthood Worried about your teenage kids spending a lot of time playing outdoors games? Take heart, a new study has suggested that increased amounts of exposure to sunlight may reduce the risks of developing myopia or nearsightedness in adulthood. According to the study, higher exposure of ultraviolet B (UVB) between ages 14 and 29 years may have reduced odds of myopia or nearsightedness-a condition in which close objects appear clearly, but far ones do not-in adulthood. For the study, the research team from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine in Britain, examined the association of myopia with UVB radiation, serum vitamin D concentrations and vitamin D pathway genetic variants, adjusting for years in education in 371 participants with myopia and 2,797 without. The results showed that those in the years of education had twice the odds of myopia. Although exposure to sunlight increases vitamin D levels, it did not correlate with nearsightedness. No independent associations between myopia and serum vitamin D3 concentrations or variants in genes associated with vitamin D metabolism were found, the researchers said. In contrast, those who had the highest blood levels of lutein-a nutrient found in leafy vegetables-had nearly half the risk of myopia compared with those with the lowest levels. “The association between UVB, education, and myopia remained even after respective adjustment. This suggests that the high rate of myopia associated with educational attainment is not solely mediated by lack of time outdoors,” said Astrid E. Fletcher from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. “As the protective effect of time spent outdoors is increasingly used in clinical interventions, a greater understanding of the mechanisms and life stages at which benefit is conferred is warranted,” Fletcher added, in the study published online in the journal JAMA Ophthalmology.

The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) reports that while many people worry about lead in their homes or in the environment, for some the workplace may offer the greatest potential for exposure. Lead is a toxic heavy metal. It can be combined with other metals to produce alloys. Lead and lead alloys are often used to make batteries, ammunition and other metal products. In the past, lead was also used regularly in fuel, paint, ceramics, caulk, pipes and solder among other things. Due to potential health issues from exposure, the amount of lead used in these products today has lessened or has been removed. Though used less often, NIOSH reports that lead is still common in many industries, including construction, mining and manufacturing. In these and other industries, workers can be at risk of being exposed to lead, by breathing it, ingesting it or coming in contact with it. NIOSH provides the following information for workers about how lead exposure can occur: • Workers can be exposed by breathing-in lead fumes or lead dust. Lead fumes are produced during metal processing, when metal is being heated or soldered. Lead dust is produced when metal is being cut or when lead paint is sanded or removed. Lead fumes and lead dust do not have an odor, so workers may not know they are being exposed. • Lead dust can settle on food, water, clothes and other objects. If a worker eats, drinks or smokes in areas where lead is being processed or stored, they could ingest it. Not washing one’s hands before eating or touching one’s mouth are also ways it could be ingested. • Workers can also be exposed by coming into contact with lead dust. Some studies have found lead can be absorbed through skin. Workers that handle lead and then touch their eyes, nose or mouth, could be exposed. Lead dust can also get on clothes and hair. If this happens, it’s possible that a worker could track home some of the lead dust, which may also expose their family. These are just a few things to know about lead exposure risks in the work environment.
