Why do environmental pollutants accumulate in the cold polar regions? This may not only be due to the fact that many substances are less volatile at low temperatures, as has been long suspected, but also to their extremely slow natural degradation. Although persistent environmental pollutants have been and continue to be released worldwide, the Arctic and Antarctic regions are significantly more contaminated than elsewhere. The marine animals living there have some of the highest levels of...

According to a clinical trial led by University of Cincinnati researchers, a snack food ingredient called olestra has been found to speed up the removal of toxins in the body. Results are reported in the April edition of the Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry. The trial demonstrated that olestra—a zero-calorie fat substitute found in low-calorie snack foods such as Pringles—could reduce the levels of serum polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in people who had been exposed to PCBs....

Some scientists believe that this case of finding high levels of glyphosate in breast milk could be a re-run of the polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) scandal of the 1970s (1), which ended in the toxic chemical compound's production being banned by the U.S. Congress in 1979. The initial testing results reveal the build-up of glyphosate herbicide in Mothers' bodies with levels of glyphosate in breast milk found to be much higher than levels in urine, leading to the potential for...
