In the study, scientists also found that HFCs
have a nearly linear impact on stratospheric temperature and ozone change.
It is not only emission of HFC
per se is the key problem but energy use of the equipment and appliances using alternatives to HFCs
is in fact more important," he said.
Novec 1230 Fire Protection Fluid is a next-generation HFC
and halon replacement, designed to balance concerns for human safety, performance and the environment.
Naveen Fernandes, fund manager, Centrum Broking, lists three reasons why HFCs
have been feeling the heat.
But animal tests showing that fructose leads to increased eating in rodents have been criticized as flawed 6 in such experiments, the animals had a massive dose of fructose injected directly into their brains, an unrealistic scenario for modeling how people actually process HFCS
consumption increased from almost nothing in 1990 to about 9,800 tons in 2002.
Whatever it is, the bottom line is that HFCS
harms your brain.
Proposals also are pending under the Montreal Protocol to phase out the use of all high-GWP HFCs
in all sectors.
But by 2050, HFCs
could account for up to 19 percent of global warming.
The proposal calls on all countries to take action to reduce their consumption and production of HFCs
, although developed countries would take the lead in this effort," a department statement said.
, considered a safe replacement, were phased in during the 1980s and 1990s, and 96% of all ozone-depleting chemicals were replaced, according to the United Nations.
As for evidence published in the peer-reviewed literature that directly links HFCS
to overweight or obesity, very little exists and what does exist is inconclusive.
