  • The thought could be scary, knowing how much toxins you inhale everyday. Through the help of technology European researchers are gearing up to monitor thousands of people. Smartphones are given away to record the chemicals to which they are exposed every day.

    Exposome, the term used by European Commission to study the effects of environmental exposures to human health. It was then hope that the four-year studies will benefit public health in ways that genome research so far has not. Exposone could reveal a warning or warnings of environmental health issues for use.

    “There’s been too much emphasis on genetic factors, which contribute relatively little to disease compared with environmental factors,” says Martyn Smith, a toxicologist at the University of California, Berkeley, who is participating in the newly funded Exposomics project. Paolo Vineis, an environmental epi¬demiologist at Imperial College London, leads the €8.7-million project.

    Some studies do not always succeed like the Genome-wide association studies, in which scientists search for genetic variants linked to disease. They have failed to fully explain why some people are more susceptible than others to chronic diseases, such as type 2 diabetes.

    The new study will work this way, subjects will carry smartphones equipped with sensors to measure exposures, and their blood will be analyzed to monitor molecular changes. The majority of the participants are already concerned in other long-term health studies...

  • Why is natural gas better than coal boilers?

    The economic development of one country is dependent upon the ability of the authorities to set up a highly suitable, competitive and reliable electricity sector. Why is natural gas better than coal boilers?

    Only when there is extreme environmental pressure or substantial reduction in loads that conversion from coal to 100% natural gas is possible.

    Not until the 20th century until natural gas was used for production of energy, it was dismissed as a useless byproduct of crude oil production until then. But now natural gas accounts for 23 percent of the world’s energy consumption and still growing. The International Energy Agency predicts that the demand for natural gas will grow by approximately 44 percent through 2035.

    Natural gas is the cleanest-burning conventional fuel not to mention it has been one of the most economical energy sources. It is an environmentally friendly and efficient source of energy. It produces lower levels of greenhouse gas emissions than heavier hydrocarbon fuels such as coal and oil. Natural gas fuels electric power generators, heats buildings and is used as a raw material in many consumer products, such as those made of traditional plastics. However, natural gas has never been a cheaper fuel than coal.

    Coal is one of the longest-used and is considered as the most abundant fossil fuels on Earth. Coal mining has been going on since then 17th century. Coal burning boi...

    Biomass for energy often mean plant base material although can equally apply to both

    animal and vegetable draw from material. Biomass is actually a biological material

    derive form living or recently living organisms. Biomass chemical composition is carbon

    based and is composed of a mixture of organic molecules containing hydrogen, usually

    including atoms of oxygen, often nitrogen and also small quantities of other atoms,

    including alkali, alkaline earth and heavy metals, metals are often found in functional

    molecules such as the porphyrins which include chlorophyll which contains magnesium.

    There are five basic categories of material of biomass such as:

    •Virgin wood- from forestry, arboriculture activities or from wood processing.

    •Energy crops- high yield crops grown specifically for energy applications

    •Agricultural residues- residues from agriculture harvesting or processing

    • Food waste- from food and drink manufacture, preparation and processing, and

    post-consumer waste

    •Industrial waste and co-products- from manufacturing and industrial processes.

    The question is how are we going to use this biomass as a fuel for boilers? But what is

    a boiler in the first place? A boiler is defined as “a closed vessel in which water or other

    liquid is heated, steam or vapor is generated, steam is superheated, or any combination

    thereof, under pressure or vacuum...

    Imagine tucking into a fine fillet of "British" beef, only to learn it actually came from Australia. Or drinking "French" wine that actually came from California.

    What if the "Italian" olive oil you pour over the accompanying salad originated in Morocco?

    That might not be so bad, you may think.

    But what if a bottle of vodka you'd purchased in good faith is tainted with methanol, making it lethal to drink?

    Or the baby food you feed your youngest is not what the label on the jar said it is?

    As global trade has increased, so has the potential for food fraud, where fraudsters lie or hide the true provenance of produce.

    Alongside food safety and health fears, its raises concerns over quality control, reputational damage and lost revenue, and puts the spotlight on illegal activity.

    Now some firms are taking to using scientists, a type of food "crime scene investigators", to tackle the issue.
