'Toxic garbage will be sold here': Outcry as Brazil moves to loosen pesticide laws | World news | The Guardian
“The economic interest will prevail over human and environmental health.”

Of 121 pesticides permitted in Brazil for coffee production, 30 are already banned in the European Union, including the toxic herbicide paraquat, Bombardi reported in an extensive 2017 study. [...] The country already lets foreign companies exploit its lower standards of protection, they said, “exporting hazardous pesticides prohibited from use in their domestic markets to be used in Brazil.”

Under Brazil’s current legislation, pesticides with elements considered teratogenic, carcinogenic, mutagenic, endocrine disruptive, or posing risks to the reproductive system can’t be registered, they said. But under the bill, hazardous pesticides will only be prohibited when there is a “scientifically established unacceptable risk” – a definition too vague to be effective.

Plastic kills – let's stop treating it like a normal part of modern life
The oceans are now so full of man-made detritus that our health is being put at risk too. About a third of fish caught off the coast of the UK now contain traces of plastic. Some plastics contain diethylhexyl phthalate, which is toxic and thought to be carcinogenic. When you bear in mind that British seafood eaters may ingest more than 10,000 pieces of plastic each year, it’s obvious that plastic has been a complete disaster for health.

UK must get tough on childhood obesity, says top doctors | Society | The Guardian
Obesity Health Alliance issues 10-point action plan in hope of influencing party manifestos for general election [...] “Whichever party takes up the reins of power in June, getting to grips with obesity must be high on the agenda and bolder steps taken to address the obesogenic environment in which our children are growing up. The public want this to happen; what’s needed is clear political will,” members of the OHA say in a letter published in the Guardian. // 1 year lifestyle classes -

How burnt toast and roast potatoes became linked to cancer | Science | The Guardian
dosage/exposure amount debate - not applicable to carcinogens. see // Törnqvist counters this argument with the observation that, although some chemicals have a minimum threshold concentration below which they are not dangerous at all, this is not the case for DNA-damaging chemicals, known as carcinogens. “With chemicals that damage DNA it’s a linear dose response, so even the smallest dose contributes to the risk,” she said. “There is no threshold dose for the effect.”

This Week in Health: Clearing up misperceptions about Zika virus
[A] closer look at President Obama's "Cancer Moonshot," - criticism is about focus on treatment (extending life) and nothing at prevention (90% of cases are not genetic, rather environment, exposure, lifestyle, diet). Breast Cancer lots of public activism, not so w bladder cancer. sustainability of investment over 20 years will be important, changing lifestyle habits does not take 20 years.

Gefahr durch Fracking: Das Dreckwasser von Wyoming
Das umstrittene Fracking kann das Trinkwasser belasten. Ein beharrlicher US-Forscher hat das jetzt für ein Dorf exemplarisch nachgewiesen - gegen viele Widerstände. [...] Fallstudie zu Pavillion. Sie legt nahe, dass das Grundwasser dort tatsächlich mit Fracking-Schadstoffen belastet ist. Und dass diese im Boden nach oben wandern. In Tiefen, die auch von Trinkwasserbrunnen erreicht werden. [...] Was den Forscher zusätzlich empört, ist einfach erklärt: Die US-Gesetzgebung erlaubt es, dass zur Öl- und Gasförderung Chemikalien notfalls auch in Grundwasserreservoire eingeleitet werden. "Ich kenne keine westliche Demokratie, wo so etwas möglich ist", klagt DiGiulio. Man könne doch nicht ernsthaft annehmen, das so etwas ohne Folgen für das Trinkwasser bleibe.

Stop Cancer Before It Starts (Michael Greger, M.D.. 2011)
[ oldschool dr greger ] not only is meat a carcinogen itself, but meat has accumulated pesticides and herbicides, because cows and co eat animal feed full of pesticides and herbicides. but also their loved ones (male chicken, not laying eggs, not putting on meat fast enough for industry to make a bigger profit) are in it, ground up. Even fat trimmings are in animal feed! // breast cancer rates on the rise as meat eating babyboomers come into old age 40-50 and older

Sugar tax: How bold is it?
[Gov still wants to carry out a consultation = Watered down by Food Lobby ] But the more important question is whether this will have an impact on child obesity rates. One in 10 children start primary school obese. By the end, one in five are obese. If you add in those who are overweight, it's one in three. [...] our diets are simply not good enough. [...] Food Foundation produced a model of a typical family's diet. [...] consumed too much sugar and saturated fat and too little fibre, fruit, vegetables and oily fish. [...] However, this should not be seen in isolation. The government is expected to publish its much delayed child obesity strategy in the summer. That could include restrictions on advertising and marketing, as well as a sustained campaign to reduce the sugar content of foods and drinks across the board.

Johnson & Johnson hit with $72m damages in talc cancer case - BBC News
Is talc safe? There have been concerns for years that using talcum powder, particularly on the genitals, may increase the risk of ovarian cancer. But the evidence is not conclusive. The International Agency for Research on Cancer classifies talc used on the genitals as "possibly carcinogenic" because of the mixed evidence. [...] Also there does not seem to be a "dose-response" for talc, unlike with known carcinogens like tobacco where the more you smoke, the greater the risk of lung cancer. [...] The charity Ovacome says there is no definitive evidence and that the worst-case scenario is that using talc increases the risk of cancer by a third. But it adds: "Ovarian cancer is a rare disease, and increasing a small risk by a third still gives a small risk. So even if talc does increase the risk slightly, very few women who use talc will ever get ovarian cancer."
