How Air Pollution Affects Babies in the Womb

Originally posted on TIME:

It makes sense that an expectant mom’s exposure to pollutants in the air can affect her still-growing baby’s lungs and respiratory system. But there’s increasing evidence that such compounds can also harm brain development and contribute to behavioral and cognitive problems later in childhood.

In the latest study on the subject, published in JAMA Psychiatry, researchers for the first time pinpointed exactly which areas of the brain are affected if a baby is exposed to car exhaust and the byproducts of burning home heating oil. These polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) have previously been linked to developmental delays, lower verbal IQ. signs of anxiety depression and problems with attention. But researchers haven’t been able to identify which areas of the brain are most vulnerable.

Wicked crooked walk time only takes one Tik Tok every second from the clock. Clockwise wisdom from the second hand of time’s ticking and clicking aged wisdom. Limes to sour lemons a sweet pucker of every breath, fruitful wisdoms in life’s sweet & sour puckers.
My glass is full of whiskey, my mind is aged & full with ageless wisdoms.

Particular is a precise choice of Independence remarkable for those who have it. Don’t get rid of it, it only comes twice with one walk, grace and peaceful talk. One bite is louder than a dozen barks & 1 howl Dawg.

A person’s picture is a moment captured by the shutter speed of a blinking eye, wicked in disguise. Mouths become flies as tadpoles become frogs living underneath logs.
Today’s journey is living yesterday’s wisdom

Antibiotics found at high concentrations in China’s lakes and rivers.

Originally posted on someone somewhere:

Cities in China are quickly becoming toxic waste sites, emitting so much pollution now that people have to walk around with filters over their face. Even the bright blue skies above these highly polluted cities can’t disperse the smog. One man has even proposed selling jarred French mountain air to Chinese city dwellers. Many “organic” products coming from China contain alarming levels of heavy metals, as tested by the Natural News Forensic Food Lab.

antibiotics
As these modern-day chemicals are consumed en masse and discarded into the environment as waste, they begin infiltrating the countryside, accumulating in rivers and lakes. A joint study by the East China University of Science and Technology and the Tongji and Tsinghua Universities, reports that Chinese water quality is plummeting fast, with worrisome amounts of antibiotics and pharmaceuticals appearing throughout the country’s waterways.

In fact, the country’s surface water is carrying about 158 studied pharmaceuticals and…

New highly radioactive water leak detected at Fukushima nuclear power plant.

Originally posted on someone somewhere:

More blunders at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power facility in Japan, now defunct, have led to yet another major environmental disaster, indicate new reports. Workers from the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), which owns the shuttered utility, apparently forgot to turn off an overflow valve at an onsite storage tank recently, causing the release of 100 metric tons of highly radioactive water into the ground.

According to Reuters, this latest leak is the worst to occur at the plant since an earlier one back in August which sent some 300 metric tons of contaminated water into the environment unmitigatedly. This earlier event ranked at level three on the seven-point International Nuclear Event Scale (INES), which is considered to be a “serious incident.”

In this latest occurrence, a Fukushima storage tank designed to allow for the tapered release of contaminated water into a nearby holding area was improperly monitored, resulting…
