Some Chemicals in Smoke May Be Even More Dangerous Than Previously Thought

Though most “low molecular weight polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons” (LMW PAHs) have not been shown to cause cancer alone, the study shows that in common combinations, these chemicals can help to spark the disease.

New Approach to Geoengineering Simulations Is Significant Step Forward

Using a sophisticated computer model, scientists have demonstrated for the first time that a new research approach to geoengineering could potentially be used to limit Earth’s warming to a specific target while reducing some of the risks and concerns identified in past studies, including uneven cooling of the globe.

Study Finds a New Way to Shut Down Cancer Cells’ Ability to Consume Glucose

Many cancers depend on glucose consumption for energy, but good pharmacological targets to stop cancers’ ability to uptake and metabolize glucose are missing. CU Cancer Center study finally identifies a way to restrict the ability of cancer to use glucose for energy.
