Diesel cess to fund study on pollution's impact on health:CPCB 19.1.2018 General News
The Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) has cleared seven projects, including a study on the impact of air pollution on health, which will be funded by its environment fund made up of the cess levied on the sale of high-end diesel cars, officials said. The apex pollution regulator currently has Rs 70 crore in the corpus, called the Environment Protection Fund (EPC), which was created following a Supreme Court order in August 2016, CPCB member-secretary D Sudhakar said. In July last year, the agency had floated an expression of interest (EoI) and proposals for projects and studies to be undertaken using the EPC. Since then, it has received 39 proposals, Sudhakar said. "We have cleared seven proposals out of the 39. An amount of Rs 10.7 crore has also been sanctioned for this purpose," Sudhakar said, adding that a few more proposals are likely to be cleared in the board's next meeting on January 24. The approved projects, once completed, will help strengthen the air ...

Bikram yoga no more effective than any other yoga: study 19.1.2018 General News
Bikram yoga - a popular yoga style performed in a room heated to 40 degrees Celsius - may be no better at improving cardiovascular health than the same postures executed at room temperature, a study claims. Despite its popularity, little is known about the health benefits associated with it and even less is known about the stipulation that it is carried out in a hot environment. The study, published in the journal Experimental Physiology, found that the heated environment did not play a role in causing improvements in vascular health. According to researchers at Texas State University in the US, Bikram yoga can reduce changes in the lining of blood vessels that are involved in the development and progression of heart disease. It also found that it can possibly delay the progression of atherosclerosis, which is a disease in which plaque builds up inside arteries and can cause heart attack or stroke. However, crucially, it found that it is not necessary for the yoga to be ..

New supplement may help women run faster: study 19.1.2018 General News
A supplement specially prepared by blending minerals and nutrients may boost performance in women and help them run faster, a study claims. Women who took the supplement for a month saw their three-mile run times drop by almost a minute, according to researchers from The Ohio State University in the US. They also saw improvements in distance covered in 25 minutes on a stationary bike and a third test in which they stepped on and off a bench, the researchers said. The study of young women, published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition, compared the performance of those who took the supplement with a control group that took a placebo. The minerals in the study included forms of iron, copper and zinc along with two other nutrients - carnitine (derived from an amino acid) and phosphatidylserine (made up of fatty acids and amino acids). Participants were recreational athletes 18 to 30 years old who had regularly done aerobic exercise at least two to

Air quality display panels put up in Delhi's traffic signals 18.1.2018 General News
LED panels in major traffic intersections in the national capital now display hourly air quality index and health advisories under a CPCB project which will soon cover the metro stations as well. Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) scientist Aditya Sharma, who oversaw its roll-out, said the Prime Ministers's Office (PMO) was behind the project, something which the Delhi government had also envisaged in the past but never executed. "Fifty traffic signals have been selected in the first phase of the initiative. We have covered the major signals such as ITO, the ones in Connaught Place, for now," Sharma said on the sidelines of a CPCB conference on air quality and waste management. The panels display hourly AQI readings and the associated health advisories. An AQI between 0-50 is considered Good, 51 -100 Satisfactory, 101-200 Moderate, 201-300 Poor, 301-400 Very Poor, and 401-500 Severe. Each category comes with its own advisory. In case of moderate, it warns of ...
