See How Many LEGO Skyscrapers You Could Build With a Year ’s Worth of Ocean Plastic Waste
Plastic has been plagued with some bad press in the weeks leading up to Earth Day, which takes place Sunday, April 22, from a sperm whale that washed ashore in Spain with 64 pounds of plastic in its body to a 600,000 square mile area in the Pacific Ocean rife with trash. Both headlines drew an outcry from concerned citizens calling for measures to protect the affected sea life. But as sad as the news may be, it is far from surprising. Plastic consumption has increased 20-fold in recent decades, with nearly a third of the material consumed bypassing waste collection systems and eventually winding up as pollution. That plast...

A study links soil metals with cancer mortality
(FECYT - Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology) Spanish epidemiologists and geologists have found associations between esophageal cancer and soils where lead is abundant, lung cancer and terrains with increased copper content, brain tumor with areas rich in arsenic, and bladder cancer with high cadmium levels. These statistical links do not indicate that there is a cause-effect relationship between soil type and cancer, but they suggest that the influence of metals from the earth's surface on the geographical distribution of tumors should be analyzed.

Health conference vows to fight the disease of racism in the NHS
Racism continues to be a problem in the NHS, with Brexit fuelling the problem, health delegates heard today. One Black member told the UNISON health conference in Brighton that racism was “the disease in the system”. And another delegate, from Spain, spoke of the thousands of NHS workers who were already fleeing the UK because they no longer feel welcome. Shortly after a debate which celebrated the NHS’s 70th anniversary – and especially the diversity of its workforce – delegates were brought back to Earth with a bump by reminders of how that workforce is treated.

Discovery of 4 subtypes of melanoma points to new treatment approaches
FINDINGSMelanoma, a relatively rare but deadly skin cancer, has been shown to switch differentiation states — that is, to regress to an earlier stage of development — which can lead it to become resistant to treatment. Now, UCLA researchers have found that melanomas can be divided into four distinct subtypes according to their stages of differentiation. Cell subtypes that de-differentiated — meaning that they reverted back to a less-mature cell — showed sensitivity to a type of self-inflicted cell death called ferroptosis.The research also showed that certain subtypes of melanoma cells could be succ...

Procedures in which people receive previously transplanted kidneys are virtually unheard of, but the surgery could save the lives of hundreds of people in the U.S. each year — people who might otherwise die while waiting for a traditional kidney transplant. Typically, previously transplanted kidneys are lost to future use when the first recipient dies.
