Hundreds of chemicals, many in consumer products, could increase breast cancer risk
Every day, people are exposed to a variety of synthetic chemicals through the products they use or the food they eat. For many of these chemicals, the health effects are unknown. Now a new study shows that several hundred common chemicals, including pesticides, ingredients in consumer products, food more
Tailor-made enzymes for chemical toxins?
Bacteria from an Indian landfill could help eliminate contaminated chemicals. The focus is on pesticides or brominated flame retardants, which accumulate in nature and in food chains. Researchers at Empa and Eawag used these bacteria to generate enzymes that can break down these dangerous chemicals. more
22 hazardous chemicals added to EU regulation on imports and exports
Exporters of the substances now have to notify their designated national authority before exporting them. In most cases, consent from the importing country is also needed. In addition, exports from the EU of a series of mercury-containing articles, such as fluorescent lamps, have also been banned. 1 more

Emerging Investigator Series: Sunlight Photolysis of 2,4-D Herbicides in Systems Simulating Leaf Surfaces
Pesticides are commonly applied on foliage, forming dry deposits on the leaf cuticular wax. However, their photochemical transformation in this lipophilic environment is much less understood compared with that in surface water. In this work, sunlight photolysis of six chlorinated phenoxyacetic acid more

Casualties of human-wildlife conflict
In their Letter “Pesticides thwart condor conservation” (11 May, p. ), P. A. E. Alarcón and S. A. Lambertucci advocate a ban on carbofuran use in developing countries to prevent wildlife poisoning [e.g., ([ 1 ])]. We agree that pesticides should be restricted. However, pesticide bans more
