Illustration of fat cells. Nuclear power offers an efficient, reliable way to provide energy to large populations — as long as all goes well. Accidents involving nuclear reactors such as those that took place in 1986 at Chernobyl and at Fukushima Daiichi after the March 2011 tsunami raise major concerns […]

Researchers call for revisions to air-quality monitoring guidelines to consider the sources of emissions. Researchers at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego examining 14 years of hospital admissions data conclude that the fine particles in wildfire smoke can be several times more harmful to human respiratory health than […]

Our consumer products can be filled with nanomaterials, but they do not show up in lists of ingredients. Credit: MostPhotos/Tatiana Mihailova Our consumer products, such as food, cosmetics, and clothes, might be filled with nanomaterials — unbeknownst to us. The use of nanomaterials remains unregulated and they do not show […]

At some point in the future, Anak Krakatoa will erupt again, generating more tsunamis (Credit: The Wild Eyed/Shutterstock) The August 1883 eruption of Krakatoa was one of the deadliest volcanic explosions in modern history. The volcano, found in the middle of the Sunda Strait in between two of Indonesia’s largest […]

People on a low-fat, plant-based diet ate fewer daily calories but had higher insulin and blood glucose levels, compared to when they ate a low-carbohydrate, animal-based diet, according to a small but highly controlled study at the National Institutes of Health. Led by researchers at the National Institute of Diabetes […]

Researchers found that COVID-19 misinformation spread exponentially across the countries, much like the coronavirus itself. Credit: Frederik Lipfert People’s fear of 5G technology is rational. Such technology does emit radiation, even if it’s at low levels. But 5G isn’t all that different from 4G, and it certainly doesn’t cause COVID-19 despite such […]

Credit: Shamir Medical Center Study finds hyperbaric oxygen treatments halt the aging of blood cells and reverses the aging process. A new study from Tel Aviv University (TAU) and the Shamir Medical Center in Israel indicates that hyperbaric oxygen treatments (HBOT) in healthy aging adults can stop the aging of […]

Transmitter density means greater population exposure to high levels of radio frequency electromagnetic fields. We should err on the side of caution and stop the global roll out of 5G (fifth generation) telecoms networks until we are certain this technology is completely safe, urges an expert in an opinion piece […]
