Trees kill odors and other emissions from poultry farms
Trees aren’t just for wood and decoration — they may also destroy odors. Scientists in Delaware are reporting data showing that just three rows of trees planted around poultry farms can cut nuisance emissions of dust, ammonia and odors from poultry houses. Their study will be presented in August at the American Chemical Society national meeting in Philadelphia.

Alcoholism: Clinical & Experimental Research
Study suggests sports stadiums serve alcohol to minors and intoxicated fans
In a novel study looking at the propensity of illegal alcohol sales at sports stadiums, researchers reported that nearly one in five people posing as underage drinkers, and three out of four seemingly intoxicated “fans” were able to buy alcohol at professional sporting events. They also found that location mattered: sales were more likely if the attempt took place in the stadium stands rather than at a concession booth.

Researchers discover scent of skin cancer
According to new research from the Monell Center, odors from skin can be used to identify basal cell carcinoma, the most common form of skin cancer. The findings, presented at the 236th meeting of the American Chemical Society, may lead to development of new methods to detect basal cell carcinoma and other forms of skin cancer. Earlier work identified almost 100 different chemical compounds coming from skin.

That tastes — sweet? Sour? No, it’s definitely calcium!
Chemists are reporting a discovery that could expand the palate of human tastes, such as sweet, sour or salty, to include a new flavor that could be called “calcium.” Their research will be presented in August at the American Chemical Society national meeting in Philadelphia.
