Analysis reveals elevated levels of active ingredients of sunscreen in blood of users

Health
Jan. 21 (UPI) -- Sunscreen protects skin from the sun's harmful rays, reducing risk for certain types of cancer. However, could it's use introduce other problems? That's the key question raised by findings published Tuesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association by researchers from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, which suggest that the bodies of users of these suntan lotions and oils likely absorb several of their active chemical ingredients. In fact, the analysis revealed that the levels of these chemicals found in users' blood in some cases surpassed the agency's threshold "for potentially waiving some of the additional safety studies" for these products. "There is evidence that some sunscreen active ingredients may be absorbed," Janet Woodcock, director of the FDA'...

Map reveals land beneath Antarctic ice sheet in unprecedented detail

Map reveals land beneath Antarctic ice sheet in unprecedented detail

Science
Dec. 12 (UPI) -- Scientists have successfully mapped the topography of the land beneath Antarctica's ice sheet at high resolution by combining radar observations with ice volume and flow velocity data. The new map will help scientists identify regions of ice that are likely to be more or less susceptible to the deleterious effects of climate change. The results of the BedMachine project, published this week in the journal Nature Geoscience, revealed a variety of interesting topographical features. Scientists found ridges that stabilize ice flowing across the Transantarctic Mountains, as well as structural features conducive to accelerated melting beneath the Thwaites and Pine Island glaciers in Western Antarctica. To build the new map, scientists sourced data from a wide diversity of so...
