Hookah smoking raises cardiovascular risk comparable to traditional cigarette smoking, study finds
This study is believed to be the first to investigate the effects of hookah smoking on stiffening of the arteries. Studies have shown that as cigarette use continues to decline, hookah smoking is rising, especially among youth and particularly among college students.“We know that flavored tobacco products are frequently the first kind of tobacco product used by youth,” Rezk-Hanna said. “One of the major issues with hookah is the fact that the tobacco is flavored with fruit, candy and alcohol flavors, making hookah the most popular flavored tobacco produc t among this audience.”According to the ...

CO2 electroreduction to ethylene via hydroxide-mediated copper catalysis at an abrupt interface
Carbon dioxide (CO2) electroreduction could provide a useful source of ethylene, but low conversion efficiency, low production rates, and low catalyst stability limit current systems. Here we report that a copper electrocatalyst at an abrupt reaction interface in an alkaline electrolyte reduces CO2 to ethylene with 70% faradaic efficiency at a potential of –0.55 volts versus a reversible hydrogen electrode (RHE). Hydroxide ions on or near the copper surface lower the CO2 reduction and carbon monoxide (CO)–CO coupling activation energy barriers; as a result, onset of ethylene evolution at –0.165 volts vers...

Report: More Than 24 People Have Died From CO Poisoning From Keyless Vehicles
BOSTON (CBS) – According to a new report by the New York Times, since 2006, more than two dozen people have died from carbon monoxide poisoning when a keyless vehicle was accidentally left running inside a garage. Dozens others have gotten sick, some left with brain damage. Keyless ignitions are now standard in over half of cars sold every year. Instead of turning a key this way or that to turn your car on or off, now you can do it with the push of a button, as long as the so-called fob is around. Quieter engines may lull people into believing that the car is turned off, and if you leave the car running in a closed g...
