  • Omega-3 fatty acids are a group of naturally occurring fat molecules that are believed to prevent heart disease. When omega-3 fatty acids were given to people who already had heart disease, there was no significant difference in the rates of major heart attacks.
  • Specialized health journalists write the best articles about medical news. But when money is tight, they are the first to be let go, showing that profit comes before educating the public about science.
  • Microorganisms found in the soils, sediments, and waters of contaminated site have been discovered that can convert insoluble metal compounds such as lead carbonate into more soluble forms.  These microbes have received much attention for their biotechnological applications, such as dissolving useful metals from metal ores.

    I do love the manner in which you have presented this situation and it really does offer me a lot of fodder for thought. However, because of what I have witnessed, I simply just hope when other reviews stack on that men and women continue to be on issue and not start upon a soap box regarding some other news du jour. Still, thank you for this fantastic piece and though I can not concur with the idea in totality, I value your viewpoint.
