4 elephants die of poachers' cyanide poisoning in Zimbabwe 1.2.2018 General News
Four elephants have died from cyanide poisoning in Zimbabwe as poachers take advantage of a dry spell to contaminate remaining water sources. Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority spokesman Tinashe Farawo says rangers discovered the carcasses in Hwange National Park on January 25. He says their ivory was missing. The spokesman says poachers are increasingly turning to poison instead of using their noisy rifles as police and park rangers increase joint patrols. Farawo says poachers also are injecting cyanide into oranges and pumpkins, which are favorites of elephants. The southern African nation teems with elephants and other wildlife but has battled poachers for years. Farawo says 53 elephants died from cyanide poisoning last year, lower than in previous years when hundreds of elephants died.

SpaceX Dragon spacecraft to return with NASA cargo 13.1.2018 General News
SpaceX's Dragon cargo spacecraft splashed down in the Pacific Ocean today, with about 4,100 pounds of NASA cargo, science and technology demonstration samples from the International Space Station (ISS), NASA said. A variety of technological and biological studies are returning in Dragon, including hardware from the "Made in Space Fiber Optics" payload, which demonstrated manufacturing fiber optic filaments in a microgravity environment, the US space agency said. Designed by the company "Made in Space" and sponsored by the Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS), the investigation pulled fiber optic wire from ZBLAN, a heavy metal fluoride glass commonly used to make fiber optic glass. Research indicates that ZBLAN fiber pulled in microgravity may not crystalize as much, giving it better optical qualities than the silica used in most fiber optic wire. Results from this investigation could lead to the production of higher-quality fiber optic products both in

Is it safe to have fluoride in toothpaste? 5.1.2018 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Oral health is a reflection of a healthy body. It is important to consume the right food and use safe products to ensure good oral health. The use of silver diamine fluoride has been frequently questioned for its side-effects. Although it is a naturally occurring mineral used in toothpastes to resolve dental problems, is it really worth it? Decades ago, it was found that children, who grew up in regions with high concentrations of naturally occurring fluoride in water, had less tooth decay compared to those in other regions. Gradually, fluoride was added to water and people saw depletion of dental illnesses. But a few years down the line, it was found that fluoride is a neurotoxin that affects the nervous tissue. Though it is still believed that addition of fluoride in toothpastes and water is beneficial for dental hygiene, it is critical to spread awareness for its possible side-effects. Even a tiny amount of toothpaste is hazardous to health when consumed on a regular basis and may cause diseases like ...
