Toxin-Detecting Nanosensors

In the digital age—where technological innovation has accelerated drastically—the existence of a bionic plant does not seem like an outlandish concept. In fact, it isn't. Harpreet Sareen, a graduate of the highly regarded MIT Media Lab, has succeeded in developing a bionic plant that can "instantly detect irregularities in water quality, catching them long before they become a problem for residents in the neighborhood or district."

Commentary: Biden’s infrastructure plan targets lead pipes that threaten public health across the nation

President Joe Biden’s infrastructure plan includes a proposal to upgrade the U.S. drinking water distribution system by removing and replacing dangerous lead pipes. As a geochemist and environmental health researcher who has studied the heartbreaking impacts of lead poisoning in children for decades, I am happy to see due attention paid to this silent killer, which disproportionately affects poor communities of color.

Common Sense: Earth Day is every day

World Earth Day was yesterday, which meant that you stumbled across “save the planet” posts on social media more than once. Even companies like Nestle and Colgate-Palmolive bought into the trend, despite being some of the world’s largest plastic polluters. No matter how much these big companies want to act like they care about the environment, we all know it’s a lie. If they really cared then they would not be producing gallons of waste every year.

When You Drink Tap Water Every Day, This Is What Happens

The advice to drink water is repeated enough that you may assume that the fluids seeping from our faucets would be safe for consumption. Yet, as One Medical mentions, we are inundated with advertisements for filters and various brands of water bottled and resold. However, they add that for most American adults, water (tap or bottled) doesn't contain an amount of pollutants that exceeds national rules. These rules, the National Primary Drinking Water Regulations, list the various amounts of chemicals allowed to contaminate water. Thankfully, though, nothing derived from fecal waste is permitted. In theory, then, drinking tap water every day would produce the same results as drinking bottled or filtered water, because both are water.
