Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development About the GHS Chemicals, through the different steps from their production to their handling, transport and use, are a real danger for human health and the environment. People of any ages, from children to elderly, using many different languages and alphabets, belonging to various social conditions, including illiterates, are daily confronted to dangerous products (chemicals, pesticides, etc.) To face this danger, and given the reality of the extensive global trade in chemicals and the need to develop national programs to ensure their safe use, transport and disposal, it was recognized that an internationally-harmonized approach to classification and labelling would provide the foundation for such programs. The new system, which was called "Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS)", addresses classification of chemicals by types of hazard and proposes harmonized hazard communication elements, including labels and safety data sheets.
Pharyngula Probably not. But the New York Times reports: A review of studies has found that the health benefits of infant male circumcision vastly outweigh the risks involved in the procedure. Actually, it doesn’t. Not at all. Prevalence of adult circumcision in the United States during the past 6 decades (1948-2010). It does toss in a table purporting to show the tremendous risks of not circumcising baby boys, but this is not new — these are the same sloppy data that the author has been peddling for over a decade. The author is Brian Morris, better known as the Man Who Hates Foreskins. I suppose it could be because glorious Scandinavian penises are perfect and universally wholesome — that’s what I’ve been told, anyway — but that would be baseless speculation and unwarranted extrapolation of anecdotes into unsupportable evidence, of the sort that Brian Morris does. Take that first condition, the likelihood of urinary tract infections. Or look at his claim of much greater rates of HIV infection.

fiski - fiski.blog.is Margir hafa andúð á trollveiðum, segja að þær fari illa með botninn. Græningjar eru fremstir í flokki en þeir telja að allar aðgerðir mannsins við fiskveiðar séu af hinu illa, sérstaklega hafa þeir lagst í víking gegn atvinnuveiðum undir merkjum ofveiði. Risið hafa upp samtök, sem votta að fiskur komi úr stofnum, sem séu nýttir á "sjálfbæran" hátt. Andstaða á togveiðum kemur einnig frá smábátasjómönnum, sem telja sig nota "vistvæn" veiðarfæri. Haldið er fram að botnvarpan og bobbingarnir eyðileggi kóralla, sem veita eigi fiskinum skjól. Ekki er vafi á að kórallar skemmist þar sem togað er en yfirleitt er lítið togað á svoleiðis botni. Áhyggjur eru af því að að sífelld ánauð botnvörpunnar fari illa með botninn, drepi gróður og dýr og skemmi hann. Trollveiðar hafa verið stundaðar við Færeyjar í meira en 100 ár. Myndin hér til hliðar sýnir togslóðir Betatogaranna árið 2006. Þessi neðansjáarmynd af trolli. var gerð í minningu Guðmundar heitins Kjærnisted skipstjóra.
