Metalworking Fluids & Legionnaires Disease
New guidance on the risk of Legionnaires' disease from water mix metal working fluids (MWFs) has been published. Recent research shows there is a minimal risk of Legionella bacteria contaminating such a system, if the system is properly managed. It is suggested that, following HSE’s existing guidance on managing bacterial contamination of metalworking fluids, should be sufficient to control the risks. Under normal circumstances there is no need for any additional measures. Source : http://www.hse.gov.uk/metalworking/legionella.htm?ebul=gd-engineering&cr=3/sept12
Helical CT Scans and Lung Cancer Screening
Lung cancer is the foremost cause of death from cancer in the United States, leading to nearly 160,000 deaths in 2006 (USCS). Annually, nearly 200,000 people have a new diagnosis of lung cancer (See related blog on new Surgeon General Report). Efforts to develop methods to detect the cancer early enough to improve survival of the diagnosed persons have been largely unsuccessful. A recent study of a relatively new form of screening using helical computerized tomography (CT) demonstrated fewer lung cancer deaths among individuals at high risk of lung cancer who received this screening than among...
