Unchecked use of antibiotics poses significant threat to freshwater ecosystem 15.11.2019
Washington: Residues from billions of doses of antibiotics, painkillers and antidepressants pose a significant risk to freshwater ecosystems and the global food chain, a new analysis said Thursday. There are growing fears that the unchecked use of antibiotics in both medicine and agriculture will have adverse effects on the environment and on human health. When animals and humans ingest medicines, up to 90 per cent of active ingredients are excreted back into the environment. Many medicines are simply discarded -- in the United States alone an estimated one-third of the four billion drugs prescribed each year end up as waste. The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) compared data on concentrations of pharmaceutical residue in water samples worldwide as well as prescribing trends and water purification regulations in various countries. One study cited in its report estimates that 10 per cent of all pharmaceuticals are potentially harmful to the environment – including ...

Havells introduces 'Freshia' range of air-purifiers, with 9-stage filtration process 8.11.2019
Havells India Limited introduced its latest range of air-purifiers, "Freshia", with an innovative 9-stage filtration process that promises to curb and eliminate air-borne pollutants as small as 0.3 micron, capturing pollutants up to 99.99 per cent. With high levels of air-pollution across major cities in the country, there is growing focus to encourage a nourishing, healthy atmosphere of well-being in homes today. While we take necessary precaution to avoid atmospheric toxicity, indoor air can be quite entrenched with severe air-borne pollutants as well. Damp environments are often a breeding ground for bacteria and cause infectious diseases. Allergens can trigger flu, irritation and asthma while volatile organic compounds in paints, solvents and sprays can lead to respiratory problems. With particulate matter invisible to the human eye but equally harmful, it is essential to create an environment that injects purity and freshness in every breath you take. "Freshia" creates a new ...
