Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Containing dissolved oxygen concentrations of less than 2 or 3 parts per million, hypoxic waters in estuaries and sections of coastline are essentially “dead zones” where life cannot exist. According to a new study in the journal Nature Geoscience, iron discharged from continental sediments acts as a limiting switch that could prevent coastal waters from creating a runaway feedback loop that leads to less and less dissolved oxygen...

It stinks and strikes fear in the hearts of those who work underground, but the toxic gas hydrogen sulfide may be a lifesaver for patients with heart failure. In a recent study, low concentrations of hydrogen sulfide gas improved functioning in the hearts of mice with heart failure. After heart failure was induced in mice, the gas was administered intravenously once a day for a week. Four weeks after the heart failure event, mice treated with hydrogen sulfide had about a one-third higher...
