The MSDS HyperGlossary: Trade Secret. Definition A trade secret is any formula, pattern, device or compilation of information which is used in one's business, and which gives him an opportunity to obtain an advantage over competitors who do not know or use it.

The MSDS HyperGlossary: Trade Secret

It may be a formula for a chemical compound, a process of manufacturing, treating or preserving materials, a pattern for a machine or other device, or even a list of customers. In other words, the trade secret is proprietary information, that which the holder of the secret does not wish to be known to others, particularly his competitors. Additional Info. What's In My Neighborhood? Agricultural Interactive Mapping. The Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) is the lead agency for response to, and cleanup of agricultural chemical contamination in Minnesota.

What's In My Neighborhood? Agricultural Interactive Mapping

The MDA has tracked spills of agricultural chemicals and sites contaminated with agricultural chemicals since the late 1970's. The data in this collection contains information on known and potential sources of agricultural chemical soil and ground water contamination. For the purpose of mapping these incidents, the MDA has categorized them into three categories 1. Old Emergencies, 2. Small Spills and Investigations, and 3. Old Emergencies: This dataset contains points and attributes for MDA Agricultural Chemical Incident Response Unit investigations which were closed prior to March 1, 2004.

EPA has more than 85,000 chemicals listed on its inventory of substances that fall under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). Major Group 28: Chemicals And Allied Products. This major group includes establishments producing basic chemicals, and establishments manufacturing products by predominantly chemical processes.

Agricultural Contaminants. Over the last 100 years, agricultural expansion and intensification has led to changes in water quality and the health of stream ecosystems.

Agricultural Contaminants

Considerable increases in fertilizer and pesticide use began in the 1960s. In 2010, about 11 billion kilograms of nitrogen fertilizer and 300 million kilograms of pesticides were used annually to enhance crop production or control pests. Increased levels of nutrients from fertilizers draining into streams can stimulate algal blooms and affect stream health and recreational uses of local streams, downstream reservoirs, and estuaries, and increase treatment costs for drinking water.

United States Environmental Release Reports Available at This Level View National Report. Interactive Map: PFAS Contamination Crisis: New Data Show 1,398 Sites in 49 States. For water systems that had one or more detection of PFOS, PFOA or another contaminant, an average was calculated using the all samples collected.

Samples with no detections were treated as zero when calculating the average, which in turn may skew the value lower when the contaminant is more common. All locations represented on the map are approximate, and meant to visualize the general area of a contamination site or public water detection. Air Data: Air Quality Data Collected at Outdoor Monitors Across the US. The AirData Air Quality Monitors app is a mapping application available on the web and on mobile devices that displays monitor locations and monitor-specific information.

It also allows the querying and downloading of data daily and annual summary data. Map layers include: State and Substate Estimates of Any Mental Illness from the 2012–2014 National Surveys on Drug Use and Health. 9. In this report, state estimates are discussed in terms of their observed rankings because they provide useful context. However, a state having a highest or lowest rate does not imply that the state's rate is significantly higher or lower than the rate of the next highest or lowest state. Similarly, the quintiles were not selected to represent statistical differences across quintiles or to correspond to proximity to a target public health threshold for a particular measure. Deficit of corpus callosum axons, reduced axon diameter and decreased area are markers of abnormal development of interhemispheric connections in autistic subjects.

Vaccines Do Not Cause Autism Concerns. The Environmental Protection Agency Keeps Approving Dangerous Chemicals. In 2009, DuPont touted the chemical produced at its plant along North Carolina’s Cape Fear River as a new, safer alternative to the dangerous per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, or PFAS, that were behind health crises in Parkersburg, West Virginia, and scores of other communities. But in the decade after the Environmental Protection Agency approved the chemical, called GenX, for commercial use, high levels accumulated in the river, a drinking water source for about 250,000 people.

Thyroid cancer rates in the region spiked along with reports of rare pediatric cancers, leukemia and bladder cancer, according to Clean Cape Fear, an environmental advocacy group. That has stoked fears and frustration among residents who believe regulators have failed to protect them in allowing the chemical to come to market. WSU researchers see popular herbicide affecting health across generations. By Eric Sorensen, WSU News PULLMAN, Wash. – First, the good news. Washington State University researchers have found that a rat exposed to a popular herbicide while in the womb developed no diseases and showed no apparent health effects aside from lower weight.

Now, the weird news. The grand-offspring of that rat did have more disease, as did a great-grand offspring third generation. “The third generation had multiple diseases and much more frequently than the third generation of unexposed rats,” said Michael Skinner, a Washington State University professor of biological sciences. The Papers – The Poison Papers. The “Poison Papers” represent a vast trove of rediscovered chemical industry and regulatory agency documents and correspondence stretching back to the 1920s.

Taken as a whole, the papers show that both industry and regulators understood the extraordinary toxicity of many chemical products and worked together to conceal this information from the public and the press. These papers will transform our understanding of the hazards posed by certain chemicals on the market and the fraudulence of some of the regulatory processes relied upon to protect human health and the environment. Search instructions for the Poison Papers. Even moderate drinking could harm the brain. Heavy drinking can lead to a number of serious health problems, including increased risk of cancer, heart disease, and dementia, but consuming even moderate levels of alcohol could be dangerous, as well, new research suggests.
