Trump ’ s Halt on Coal Mining Study Has Asbestos Implications
The U.S. Department of the Interior has ordered a halt to a study on the public health risks of mountaintop removal mining in Appalachia — an area ripe with natural asbestos deposits. A letter from the Interior Department on Monday directed the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine to “cease all work” on the study, citing responsible spending of taxpayer dollars as the reason for the decision.

Clinical Impact of Multiplex Syndromic Panels in the Diagnosis of Bloodstream, Gastrointestinal, Respiratory, and Central Nervous System Infections
Recent technological advances are revolutionizing clinical microbiology. In place of the traditional diagnostic approach in which a clinician suspecting an infectious disease is required to test for the most likely etiology, perform follow-up testing for rarer causes, and then perhaps be left with a diagnosis of exclusion, many laboratories are now offering multiplex syndromic panels to provide a comprehensive diagnostic approach to bloodstream, gastrointestinal, respiratory, and central nervous system infections.

Bob is a 72-year-old male, with a 40-pack-year smoking history. He quit about 8 years ago, when severe COPD was diagnosed.
