Blood pressure drug recall expands over third possible carcinogen

Health
March 2 (UPI) -- Drug companies expanded a recall of Losartan lots after detecting a third potentially cancer-causing impurity in blood pressure medication.

Third of Himalayan glaciers can no longer be saved: study

Technology
One-third of Himalayan glaciers will melt by the end of the century due to climate change, threatening water sources for 1.9 billion people, even if current efforts to reduce climate change succeed, an assessment warns. If global efforts to curb climate change fail, the impact could be far worse: a loss of two-thirds of the region's glaciers by 2100, said the Hindu Kush Himalaya Assessment released Monday by the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development. "Global warming is on track to transform the frigid, glacier-covered mountain peaks of the Hindu Kush Himalayas cutting across eight countries to bare rocks in a little less than a century," said Philippus Wester of the center, who led the report. The five-year study looked at the effects of climate change on a region that...
