Why You Need To Know If There’s Mold In Your Home
Mold toxicity is sometimes called “the most prevalent health problem that physicians are completely missing,” as toxic mold is an under-respected threat that causes more damage than people realize.

Toxic firefighting chemicals may have been spread across Victorian waterways
Potentially carcinogenic firefighting chemicals discovered in a Victorian wetland may have been spread across the state because of a commercial fishing practice known as “ranching”.

The Victorian Environment Protection Authority said testing by the Department of Defence had discovered “elevated” levels of per-and poly-fluoroalkyl substances – commonly knows as PFAS – in animals from the Heart Morass wetlands near Sale in eastern Victoria.

The wetland is popular with fishers and hunters, and while the EPA said people who had eaten the animals were not “at risk of any adverse health effects”, it warned against eating animals from the area.

The results of the testing have not been released, but the EPA said elevated PFAS concentrations had been found in fish, eels and ducks.

Study finds Reddit’s controversial ban of its most toxic subreddits actually worked • TechCrunch
Devin Coldewey:
<p>It’s an example of one of the objections made to the idea of banning troublesome users or communities: they’ll just go elsewhere, so why bother?

Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology took this question seriously, as until someone actually investigates whether such bans are helpful, harmful or some mix thereof, it’s all speculation. So they took a major corpus of Reddit data (compiled by PushShift.io) and <a href="http://comp.social.gatech.edu/papers/cscw18-chand-hate.pdf">examined exactly what happened to the hate speech and purveyors thereo</a>f, with the two aforementioned subreddits as case studies.

Essentially they looked at the thousands of users that made up CT and FPH (as they call them) and quantified their hate speech usage. They then compared this pre-ban data to the same users post-ban: how much hate speech they produced, where they “migrated” to (i.e. duplicate subreddits, related ones, etc.) and whether “invaded” subreddits experienced spikes in hate speech as a result. Control groups were created by observing the activity of similar subreddits that weren’t banned.

What they found was encouraging for this strategy of reducing unwanted activity on a site like Reddit:

• Post-ban, hate speech by the same users was reduced by as much as 80-90 percent.<br />• Members of banned communities left Reddit at significantly higher rates than control groups.<br />• Migration was common, both to similar subreddits (i.e. overtly racist ones) and tangentially related ones (r/The_Donald).<br />• However, within those communities, hate speech did not reliably increase, although there were slight bumps as the invaders encountered and tested new rules and moderators.

All in all, the researchers conclude, the ban was quite effective at what it set out to do…</p>


Encouraging.

Marijuana Compound Removes Toxic Alzheimer's Protein from the Brain
Scientists have new evidence that suggests that THC inhibits the formation of amyloid plaques by blocking the enzyme in the brain that produces them. Neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's are caused by the poor formation of those proteins in the brain.
