Environmental Chemicals and Obesity Connection

program: 
Evening News
program date: 
Thu, 04/24/2008

Recent research is connecting chemical exposures to the rising rates of obesity.                

In a forum sponsored by the Oregon Environmental Council, Bruce Blumberg, Associate professor of development and cell biology, visited portland to discuss his research on the subject.

Increasing numbers of studies suggest that minute exposures to certain chemicals can pre-program  children to be obesity-prone from birth.  These chemicals, known as obesogens  interfere with gene expression at critical times in development.

Blumburg spoke on how our hormones affect how we gain weight and specific chemicals being identified to affect these hormones.

  That was Bruce Blumberg speaking on obesity caused by exposure to chemicals.

Blumberg was speaking as part of the Oregon Environmental Council’s Healthy Environment Forum series, which aims to link some of Oregon’s most difficult environmental and health challenges.

Haitians Hungry: Paid France 20 Billion Dollars

Thu, 04/24/2008

 

The International Monetary Fund said on Friday it was working with donors to review Haiti's need for more aid to deal with soaring food prices.  The food crisis recently sparked food riots in the Caribbean country.

But while the economists in the International Monetary Fund are trying to figure out what is causing the crisis in Haiti and around the world, those familiar with Haiti's history say the reasons behind the food crisis are very clear.

Seth Donnelly with the Haiti Action Committee just returned from a week-long delegation to Haiti.

That was Seth Donnelly with the Haiti Action Committee, talking about some of the origins of the current food crisis in Haiti.

From the time of its independence in 1804 until the 1940s, Haiti was forced to pay yearly reparations to its colonizer, France.

These reparations were compensation for the profits France would have made through the continued enslavement of the Haitian people.  The payments made by Haiti to France  totaled 20 billion dollars.       

 

PDX Copwatch: on Use of Deadly Force

Michael Schrunk, the District Attorney for Multnomah County, held several supposedly public hearings last week. 

The focus of the hearings was a proposed policy on the use of deadly force by the Portland police department. 

Although the topic is one that usually raises heated debate among Portlanders, almost no one attended the hearings.

According to Dan Handelman of Portland Copwatch, the reason for the low attendance was that the District Attorney's office gave very little public notice of the hearings:

That was Dan Handelman of Portland Copwatch, talking about the Hearings held last weeks by the Multnomah County District Attorney's office on the use of deadly force by the Portland Police Department. 

KBOO Radio got notice of the hearing just hours before it was supposed to take place.  Some Media Outlets got no notice at all.

The District Attorney's office did not return phone calls from KBOO Radio before this newscast.

The 22-foot dam is old and may be decommissioned – but until then, it will close from about mid-July to mid-November.
