High Trans fat cause of concern




31.03.2012 20:01:13 - by sagarmedia on March 31, 2012
A little knowledge is very dangerous so is High Trans fat cause of concern a report generated from Center for Science and Environment (CSE) is shocking facts.CSE lab offered its report to selective media could be cause of concern but the manner in which it explains the cause is too is concerned for media those who understands science with respect to chemistry and physics the former is material science and later is more or less experiential and more mathematical plus operation science.
Trans fat is the common name for unsaturated fat with trans-isomer E-isome fatty acids. Term refers to the configuration of a double carbon-carbon bond, hydrogen-hydrogen bonds.Trans fats are sometimes monounsaturated or polyunsaturated, but never saturated. Trans fats are rare in living nature, but can occur in food production processes.Consumption of trans fats increases the risk of coronary heart disease by raising levels of LDL cholesterol and lowering levels of "good" HDL cholesterol.

(live-PR.com) - When any lab claims to put the facts before the media it needs to adhere to some important norms of the fact it is producing.One experiments each of the sample and to conclude with some ideation of hypothesis to law can never be formulated in science. The experiments are ought to be conducted under the observation of neutral media persons


in complete know of the two sciences and test being conducted not in solo or mono test but be conducted simultaneous with multiple formats like simple titration and computerized or in mechanized along with more labs tech taking up the cause and the results are to be compared and the operational,comparative study is made with consultation of not in a day but consultative days are fixed to come to a conclusions with practical study.WHO and national norms may or may not be the same as are different in category of palatable water.
Food poisoning is cause of concern not only with adulteration but because of people in business with ignorance and poor quality of chemicals,preservatives used without adding its supplement or complement to the food.The preparation and the consumption of the food too has its own vital role to play.

Report by CSE on trans fat on fast food needs more explanation and ought to be consumed with care as the snacks but not in daily routine as even the normal food of one dish daily too spoils health food needs to be consumed in variety with season and not sticking to one category of dish.We need more labs,NGO and other people coming forward along with CSE to make it comprehensive and holistic study rather than of one's own affirmative and but produce more voluble tenable prepositions.In spite of study shortcomings it needs to ne complimented for their solo effort.

Our body has millions of minute particles in form of cells,molecules,other chemicals and ions which are allotted various functions to keep our body toned up with process of converting the food into simpler physical particles to chemical particles with electrolysis,chemically, oxidization,hydration,to a gaseous state and then in atomic and inoic formation and the even to some the sunshine is cause of concern with ozone too playing its adverse role on the body with natural radioactive particles in the environment along with modern man made communication gadgets we are using contain all types of infra and ultra rays which needs to be studied in details.

 Shraddhanjali Singh (75) and Saaniya Sharma (77) were tied for fourth at 221. Nikki Ponappa (76) was sixth at 228 and was one of the two players to land an eagle on the final day. The other one was Neha, also on the par-5 fourth hole.
 Smriti, who began the day seven shots ahead of Saaniya, opened with six pars before finding a double bogey. She then had a triply on the par-4 ninth. On the back nine, she birdied the 10th, but bogeyed the 11th. Then followed four pars and a bogey on 16th, a double on 17th and another bogey on 18th.

POSCO Judgment of National Green Tribunal

on March 31, 2012
On March 30, 2012, the National Green Tribunal held in Prafulla Samantra and Anr. vs Union of India and Ors. that the 31.1.2011 final order of the Environment Ministry – permitting the POSCO project to go ahead with certain conditions – should be suspended until a full review of the project can be undertaken (by specialists with fresh terms of reference). The NGT Bench consisted of Justice C.V. Ramulu, Judicial Member, and Dr. Devendra Kumar Agarwal, Expert Member.
The tribunal has observed that, “A close scrutiny of the entire scheme … reveals that a project of this magnitude particularly in partnership with a foreign country has been dealt with casually, without there being any comprehensive scientific data regarding the possible environmental impacts. No meticulous scientific study was made on each and every aspect of the matter leaving lingering and threatening environmental and ecological doubts un-answered.” (para 7, page 22)
It has also seriously questioned the appointment of Ms. Meena Gupta as the chairperson of the review committee which was set up by the MoEF in 2010. The judgement states that Ms. Gupta’s appointment was “definitely hit by personal / official / departmental bias, in other words, she supported the decision made by her earlier. This is in gross violation of principles of natural justice.” (para 6.9 page 22)
Key Directions of the Green Tribunal
The Tribunal has directed a “fresh review of the Project” (para 8.1) that has to look at the problems noted in this judgment as well as the majority and minority reports of the earlier Enquiry Committee (see list of dates), etc. In particular it has to look at:
Land and infrastructure: The clearance was given for a 4 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) steel plant, but the land, water etc. were allocated for a 12 MTPA project (which has been POSCO’s stated plan). The judgment directs MoEF to “consider optimizing the total land requirement for 4 MTPA steel plant proportionately.”(para 8.5) Moreover, the impacts of other infrastructure for the plant have not been assessed at all, even though they were planned for a 12 MTPA plant.
Issues that should have been done now, but which MoEF left for future studies: On several points highlighted by the review committee, the MoEF just said future studies should be done and ignored the issue. The Tribunal finds this deeply unsatisfactory, and notes the following among other issues:
Water: The Tribunal said that “We are all aware that … the drinking water is becoming scarce commodity and at every level precaution needs to be taken for protecting the drinking water supply to human habitation and preventing from utilizing such water for industrial use … alternative water source for the present project, like creating/ constructing a small barrage or augmenting any other existing source at the cost of project proponent to avoid the utilizing the water meant for Cuttack city… could be examined.” (para 7.4, page 29)
Pollution: The plant’s discharge was also left for future study by MoEF. The Tribunal says this is a “serious environmental concern.” (para 7.4, page 30)
Impact on surrounding wetlands and mangroves, as well as cyclone risk: This was left for vague future studies without any time frame or modus operandi. In addition, the Ministry has to frame a policy to ensure large projects are assessed in full for a single clearance (rather than being allowed to get piecemeal clearances for each component, as in this case) and for their full capacity at the start (paras 8.7,8.9). It also has to do a strategic assessment of the ports in Orissa. (para 8.8)
POSCO and the government sought to argue that the case cannot be filed as the original clearances were given in 2007 (and, incidentally, will expire in May/July this year). The Tribunal held that the 2011 order can still be looked at even if the 2007 ones cannot be; it therefore directed review and suspension of the 2011 order.
POSCO and/or the government can appeal this decision in the Supreme Court. Meanwhile, MoEF has to constitute a review committee of subject specialists (para 8.3), define timelines for compliance with conditions (para 8.4), establish a committee for monitoring compliance with these conditions (para 8.4). No work can start on the project until the review process is over.
The case was argued by Sr. Adv. Raj Punjwani, Adv. Ritwick Dutta and Adv. Rahul Choudhary for the petitioners.
