Tropical Storm Wali no more, but remnants soaked Hawaii
On July 19, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Central Pacific Hurricane Center noted that Wali didn't even make it to the Big Island, but moisture associated with the storm did.

X-ray irradiation at a certain dose alters the neuronal cytoskeleton and cytomechanics
Cranial radiotherapy is one of the most important therapeutic methods for the treatment of various types of primary and metastatic brain tumors. Although conventional photon irradiation has significantly improved the treatment of cancer, the central nervous system is prone to damage after high-dose irradiation, resulting in severe delayed or progressive nervous tissue injury. The issues regarding brain radiation injury have been widely discussed, and recent investigations have emphasized changes in pathomorphology. However, the underlying mechanism remains in debate.

Moderate alcohol use associated with increased risk for atrial fibrillation
Even in moderation, consumption of wine and hard liquor may be a risk factor for atrial fibrillation, an abnormally fast heartbeat that can lead to stroke, heart failure and dementia, according to new research published today in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. The research did not identify a similar risk for moderate consumption of beer. (2014-07-14)

Heart health benefits of light drinking brought into question
New research, led by the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, is now challenging the commonly-held belief that light-to-moderate drinking has a protective effect on the heart. Instead, through a genetics-based study of 260,000 people, the researchers find that a reduction in alcohol consumption, even for light-to-moderate drinkers, could be linked to improved cardiovascular health, including a reduced risk of coronary heart disease, lower body mass index and blood pressure. (2014-07-10)

New study shows drinking alcohol provides no heart health benefit
Reducing the amount of alcoholic beverages consumed, even for light-to-moderate drinkers, may improve cardiovascular health, including a reduced risk of coronary heart disease, lower body mass index and blood pressure, according to a new multi-center study published in The BMJ and co-led by the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. The latest findings call into question previous studies which suggest that consuming light-to-moderate amounts of alcohol may have a protective effect on cardiovascular health. (2014-07-10)

Underage drinkers heavily exposed to magazine ads for alcohol brands they consume
Underage drinkers between the ages of 18 and 20 see more magazine advertising than any other age group for the alcohol brands they consume most heavily, raising important questions about whether current alcohol self-regulatory codes concerning advertising are sufficiently protecting young people. (2014-07-08)

Safer, cheaper building blocks for future anti-HIV and cancer drugs
A team of researchers from KU Leuven, in Belgium, has developed an economical, reliable and heavy metal-free chemical reaction that yields fully functional 1,2,3-triazoles.

New research from the University of Manchester and Monash University shows a link between alcohol sponsorship and hazardous drinking in UK athletes. The study, published online today in the scientific journal Addiction, is the first to examine alcohol sponsorship of athletes in the UK, and comes at a time when there are calls in the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa for greater restriction or bans of alcohol sponsorship and advertising in sport. (2014-07-02)

Fat damages the lungs of heavy drinkers
So called fatty liver disease that long time drinkers develop may extend to the lung in a newly discovered side effect of drinking in rats that researchers are calling fatty lung disease. (2014-06-30)

Another concern arises over groundwater contamination from fracking accidents
The oil and gas extraction method known as hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, could potentially contribute more pollutants to groundwater than past research has suggested, according to a new study in ACS' journal Environmental Science & Technology. Scientists are reporting that when spilled or deliberately applied to land, waste fluids from fracking are likely picking up tiny particles in the soil that attract heavy metals and other chemicals with possible health implications for people and animals. (2014-06-25)

Fracking flowback could pollute groundwater with heavy metals
The chemical makeup of wastewater generated by 'hydrofracking' could cause the release of tiny particles in soils that often strongly bind heavy metals and pollutants, exacerbating the environmental risks during accidental spills, Cornell University researchers have found. (2014-06-25)

People who are obese or former smokers more likely to follow recommended statin therapy
A new study suggests that lifestyle factors can help predict whether people will adhere to statin therapy for high cholesterol. Among people without heart disease and diabetes, those who are overweight, obese or former smokers are more likely to adhere to statin therapy, according to an article in CMAJ. (2014-06-23)

Market crashes are anomalous features in the financial data fractal landscape
Due to their previously discovered fractal nature, financial data patterns are self-similar when scaling up. New research shows that the most extreme events in financial data dynamics -- reflected in very large price moves -- are incompatible with multi-fractal scaling. These findings have been published in EPJ B by physicist Elena Green and colleagues. Understanding the multi-fractal structure of financially sound markets could, ultimately, help in identifying structural signs of impending extreme events. (2014-06-16)

NASA's TRMM satellite analyzes Mexico's soaking tropical rains
The movement of tropical storm Boris into southern Mexico and a nearly stationary low pressure system in the southern Gulf of Mexico caused heavy rainfall in that area. NASA and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency's Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission satellite known as TRMM acts like a 'rain gauge in space' and calculated that one area received almost 2 feet of rainfall. (2014-06-09)

Satellite sees System 90L dissipating over Mexico

Iron supplements improve anemia, quality of life for women with heavy periods
A study by researchers from Finland found that diagnosis and treatment of anemia is important to improve quality of life among women with heavy periods. Findings published in Acta Obstetricia et Gynecologica Scandinavica, a journal of the Nordic Federation of Societies of Obstetrics and Gynecology, suggest clinicians screen for anemia and recommend iron supplementation to women with heavy menstrual bleeding. (2014-06-09)

Many mental illnesses reduce life expectancy more than heavy smoking
Serious mental illnesses reduce life expectancy by 10-20 years, an analysis by Oxford University psychiatrists has shown -- a loss of years that's equivalent to or worse than that for heavy smoking. Yet mental health has not seen the same public health priority, say the Oxford scientists, despite these stark figures and the similar prevalence of mental health problems. (2014-05-22)
