PCBs Found in Three More New York Schools

Three schools sharing a single Manhattan building joined the growing list of public schools where spot inspections have revealed elevated levels of polychlorinated byphenyls, or PCBs, leaking from aging light fixtures.

As many as two-thirds of public schools in New York City use the same type of fluorescent lights known to contain PCBs, according to a document prepared by the city’s Department of Education. According to the Department of Education list, 1,120 schools use the light fixtures linked to PCBs, although the total number of school buildings affected is lower because multiple schools often share a single building.

Denture Cream Zinc Report Delayed Thanks to Consultant for Fixodent Maker

Why did it take two years for an important study on denture cream zinc poisoning to be published after it was concluded? A report that aired on Good Morning America today suggests that a consultant for Procter & Gamble, maker of zinc-containing Fixodent, may have used his role as one of the study’s reviewers to delay the report.

Until that study was finally published in the journal “Neurology,” most Fixodent users had no idea the denture cream, if used in excessive amounts, could cause severe neurological damage. In March 2010, after the study in question sparked an uproar, as well as product liability lawsuits alleging Fixodent had caused Neuropathy, Procter & Gamble finally began cautioning consumers about zinc in Fixodent denture creams on it website, www.dentureliving.com. The new information stated that some reports suggest that excessive and prolonged zinc intake may be linked to adverse health effects. At the same time, Procter & Gamble also began shipping Fixodent with updated label instructions on how to apply the product. But the company continues to make Fixodent with zinc. (more…)

Breast implants, both silicone and saline, are raising concerns because of a possible link to anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL), a rare type of non-Hodgkins lymphoma.

BP Oil Spill Administrator Can’t Say He’s Independent

A federal judge has ruled that Kenneth Feinberg, the administrator charged with overseeing BP oil spill claims, is not independent of the oil company, and has ordered BP to make sure oil spill claimants are informed that they have the right to be represented by a lawyer in filing their claim. According to a Reuters report, Feinberg, who has held a series of town hall meetings in Gulf Coast communities impacted by the BP oil spill, often “reminds” potential claimants that they do not need a lawyer to take their claim to his fund

U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier ruled yesterday that BP cannot characterize Feinberg as “neutral,” and said BP must disclose in all communications that the Gulf Coast Claims Facility (GCCF) and Feinberg are acting on behalf of BP in fulfilling its legal obligations under the Oil Pollution Act.
