Too Expensive to Get Rid of Lead Ammunition, Say Hunters

The outgoing administration passed a last-minute directive, one that has been welcomed by conversation and wildlife experts the world over. America’s bald eagle problem seemed to be increasing with every passing day and the Obama administration seemed to have tackled the issue head on before passing the reigns of the government to Trump. The directive banned the use of lead fishing sinkers and ammunition on federal land in order to protect the wildlife from the effects of lead poisoning. Environmental groups such as the Center for Biological Diversity in Oakland have been advocating the ban of lead and the use of lead free ammunition for years.

New Vest Proves to Be Lighter, Safer and More Effective than Conventional X-Ray Shields

Healthcare clinics and hospitals are full of tools and equipment that emit radiation. The modern-day x-ray is a boon to mankind, but it is also quite dangerous for the workers who work around radiation day in and day out. While there are adequate radiation and x-ray shielding policies in place, it’s easy to fall into a routine and become careless. High levels of stress, countless emergencies and innumerable life and death situations don’t help either.

Lead has traditionally been used in radiation shieldingmaterials, but it poses health problems and concerns of its own. And if anything, the Flint fiasco just showed us why we cannot afford to be careless when it comes to the dangers posed by lead.

Federal Case Brings Funding to Flint

However, while communities and states around the country finally began discussing lead substitute, the people of Flint were still suffering from countless horrors that lead poisoned waters brought into their daily lives.

Asteroid Clay is a Better Space Radiation Shield than Aluminium

Space travel Two words that make most of us jump up with joy. Turns out Star Trek and Stargate fans might only have to wait a few decades before they can start thinking about traveling to distant ‘lands’. One of the biggest stumbling blocks to space travel is radiation poisoning, and protecting the human body in outer space for long periods of time seems to be impossible at this moment. Researchers, however, are trying to change that by researching new Radiation shielding materials.

And as it turns out, those massive asteroids floating through space could end up being the very things that save the human body during space travel. Researchers now believe that the clay extracted from these asteroids could be used to shield astronauts from celestial radiation during deep space missions.
