Researchers at the University of Iowa suggest that the reason many people consume too much salt is because it puts people in a better mood. Psychologist Kim Johnson and colleagues found that when rats are deficient in sodium chloride -- common table salt -- they shy away from activities they normally enjoy, like drinking a sugary substance or pressing a bar that stimulates a pleasant sensation in their brains. Things that normally would be pleasurable for rats didn't elicit the same degree...

Smarter application could help lessen the environmental impact Research at the University of Minnesota has revealed that road salt used throughout the winter is making the state's lakes and rivers saltier, which could affect aquatic life and drinking water. The research indicates that better training of snow plow drivers and more judicious use of road salt could help lessen the impact and save the state money. The researchers studied 39 lakes, three major rivers, 10 tributaries and numerous...

By Kochany, J Lipczynska-Kochany, E ABSTRACT: The paper presents the results of laboratory and pilot studies on the removal of chloramine from potable water using chlorination with a less-than-breakpoint dosage of chlorine, followed by treatment with catalytic activated carbon. The effect of the chlorine-to-nitrogen ratio, temperature, and carbon contact time were investigated to optimize conditions for chloramines removal and minimize the production of ammonia. Results demonstrated that...
