For years, researchers have debated the link between the consumption of red meat and cancer. On October 26, 2015, the World Health Organization (WHO) took what is perhaps the most definitive and aggressive position thus far by any health organization on this hot-button issue, announcing that, based on a 22-member expert panel’s analysis of more than 800 studies, processed meat (e.g., sausages, bacon) should be classified as “carcinogenic” and red meat should be considered “probably carcinogenic.” This conclusion was immediately questioned. … [Read more...] about Center for Science in Public Interest Petitions USDA for Cancer-Risk Warning Labels on Meat

The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association news release also points to disagreement within the IARC. After seven days of deliberation, IARC’s 22 experts were unable to reach a “consensus agreement” on the red meat classification and had to “settle” for a majority agreement according to the Association’s release. The release also quotes Shalene McNeill, PhD, RD as saying that “no single food has ever been proven to cause or cure cancer. The opinion by the IARC committee to list red meat as a probable carcinogen does not change that fact. The available scientific evidence simply does not support a causal relationship between red or processed meat and any type of cancer.” … [Read more...] about Meaty Issue: Do Red and Processed Meats Cause Cancer?
Second, published information suggests that more than 70% of historic dry cleaners have had releases of chlorinated solvents, and risks are presented not only from on-site use, but also from migration of solvent from neighboring properties where dry cleaning, auto repair, and other uses of PCE and TCE occurred. To address a current or potential future indoor air risk, an effective solution is to install a protective vapor barrier under a building. Vapor barriers are particularly cost-effective when incorporated into new construction. Again, involving the right consultant is critical since states vary in their requirements for such vapor barriers, which involve more than the typical moisture barrier used in building construction. For example, materials must be used that will not degrade in the presence of solvent. Depending on the circumstances, it may be prudent, or even a legal requirement, to install a passive vapor barrier in a way that allows it to be easily converted into an … [Read more...] about Risks Increasing for Properties with Chlorinated Solvent Contamination
