The adverse health impacts of tungsten.

 

In last week’s post I left you with a question…

What would you do if you were exposed to a potentially toxic environmental agent?

In this post I am going to elaborate a bit more on tungsten’s health impact in the mammalian organism, in rats specifically.

From these rat studies we will then  try to draw some conclusions about  tungsten's bio-reactivity   in the human body.


after a long hiatus...

this feels soooo awkward, its like talking to a long lost friend again. I have to apologize for my absence..

I remember when I came to Rosanne with the idea i had for this blog. I wanted to find a fun and user-friendly manner of  vocalizing science in way that was accessible. This in my head was essential, because how are women expected to make informed decisions about the issues that concern them the most, if the literature isn't presented in a manner that is accessible to them?


Fertility Research

Fertility is an under-researched area in cancer care, and there are limited data on how the oncology system deals with the fertility concerns of young adults with cancer. The Faculty of Social Work at the University of Toronto is seeking Canadian female cancer survivors for a web-based doctoral survey study. Visit http://www.cancerandfertility.com/ for more information or access the online survey directly at http://fluidsurveys.com/s/fertility.
