Proposition 65’s warning requirement has provided an incentive for manufacturers to remove listed chemicals from their products. For example, trichloroethylene, which causes cancer, is no longer used in most correction fluids; reformulated paint strippers do not contain the carcinogen methylene chloride; and toluene, which causes birth defects or other reproductive harm, has been removed from many nail care products. In addition, a Proposition 65 enforcement action prompted manufacturers to decrease the lead content in ceramic tableware and wineries to eliminate the use of lead-containing foil caps on wine bottles.
Anhydrous ferric chloride is a covalent compound FeCl 3 that dissolves in organic solvents as well as in water. It forms bright-yellow crystals as the hexahydrate. Anhydrous ferric sulphate is colorless, but crystals of Fe 2 (SO 4 ) 3 ·9h 2 O are yellow. Ferric ammonium alum, FeNH 4 (SO 4 ) 2 ·12H 2 O is pale violet, the typical ferric color in solution. This is an "alum" without aluminium, the iron standing it for it. It is a mordant because of the gelatinous ferric hydroxide formed when a solution is make alkaline. There are also ferric potassium alum, also colorless or violet, and ferrous ammonium sulphate, which forms blue-green crystals of the hexahydrate.
Though Dr. Mary T. Newport has provided professional care to newborns since 1983, she’s led a double life since 2000 when she became a caregiver at home, That’s when her beloved husband, Steve, first showed signs of Alzheimer’s disease. After his deterioration accelerated in 2004, Dr. Newport began avidly researching ways to keep him functional for as long as possible. Since she understands medical terminology and scientific methods, she was thrilled to find new research showing that medium-chain fatty acids, which act like an alternative fuel in the insulin-deficient Alzheimer’s brain, can sometimes reverse or at least stabilize the disease. When she gave Steve about 2 table-spoons of coconut oil (a source of these fats) at breakfast before a memory test that he had previously failed, Steve miraculously passed the test. Since then, Steve continues to maintain improvement while taking daily doses of coconut oil and MCT (medium-chain triglyceride) oil with meals.
