TRENTON, N.J. - A federal judge in New Jersey on Jan. 8 dismissed a lead-poisoning lawsuit against the School District of Newark, N.J., and Gov. Chris Christie related to contaminated drinking water in schools, contending that the plaintiffs failed to allege the personal involvement of any specific defendants in a manner sufficient to survive a motion to dismiss (Veronica Branch, et al v. Chris Christie, et al., No. 16-2467, D. N.J.; 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 3381).

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Proponents are seeking to have a referendum put on the November ballot in California that would authorize $2 billion in bonds to fund a competitive grant program for the remediation of structural and environmental hazards such as lead-paint poisoning in homes, schools and other facilities on grounds that if the remediation is ignored, it "could impact schools and cost the State of California thousands of available housing units for low and middle income families."

Carbon monoxide and cyanide poisoning are important causes of death due to fire. Carbon monoxide is more regularly assessed than cyanide at the site of burn or smoke inhalation treatment due to its ease in assessment and simplicity to treat. Although several forensic studies have demonstrated the significance of cyanide poisoning in fire victims using blood cyanide levels, the association between the cause of cardiac arrest and the concentration of cyanide among fire victims has not been sufficiently investigated.

Every year in the US, about 10,000 persons are treated for carbon monoxide poisoning, and roughly 400 die from unintentional exposure. This mostly occurs in our cold winter months, like now… Why winter? Carbon monoxide (CO) is an odorless, colorless, and tasteless gas normally found in the atmosphere at low levels. Many things contribute to the level of CO in the air, both outdoors (like pollution) and indoors (like tobacco smoke). High levels can also be produced from the burning of wood, gas, and other fuels. Poor heating systems or those with improper ventilation can lead to dangerous levels of CO in the air. Thi...
