Help Fund Green Chemistry!

kem-ist:

Close to the deadline, the Environmental Protection Agency suddenly pulled back on20 million dollarsin grants to help fund green chemistry— this would have gone to universities help educate undergrads, help set up internships, and critical research in the green chemistry field.
Please sign this petition to help get the money back. The EPA gave no reason for pulling out at the last minute, but it is very worrying.

Chagas Disease, Tropical Insect-Borne Illness, May Be 'New HIV/AIDS Of The Americas'

huffingtonpost:

Chagas disease, a tropical illness that is transmitted by biting insects, may pose a major unseen threat to poor populations in the Americas and Europe, according to areport published May 29 in the journalPLoS.

The editorial, which was co-authored by several experts in tropical diseases from Baylor College of Medicine in Texas, likens some aspects of the disease to that of HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.

“Endemic Chagas disease has emerged as an important health disparity in the Americas,” the authors wrote. “As a result, we face a situation in both Latin America and the US that bears a resemblance to the early years of the HIV/AIDS pandemic.”

Like AIDS, Chagas disease, which is already prevalent in Central and South America,“has a long incubation time and is hard or impossible to cure,” The New York Timesreports.

The PLoS report found “a number of striking similarities between people living with Chagas disease and people… who contracted the [HIV/AIDS] in the first two decades of the… epidemic.” Among other similarities, the paper notes that both are chronic diseases that require prolonged treatment, and disproportionately affect those living in poverty.
