Overview of the Western press: Reddish forest in the Chernobyl zone. As malicious salt.

On the results of their own work in the Chernobyl zone said French and South American scientists. German newspaper "Die Welt" wrote: "Amazing results obtained from the study of animal behavior in the districts Charnabylyu — birds that nest there, find a place for themselves with low background radiation. As birds find out force contamination remains a mystery to scientists."
Nests in the reddish woods
Scientists working in the so-called "Reddish woods," which is just 3 km away. from the reactor. Forest so christened so after tragedy trees there became reddish. Those reddish trees, however, have already cut down, and the area planted with new saplings, and the title remained. Since the explosion fallout spread around differently, some places are more infected, others — less.
Scientists from France and the United States tried to find out what places elect a animal in the forest. Watching birds — tits and muhalovak for which hung 200 birdhouses in places with different levels of radiation. But the rest featured these places were similar, with a similar selection of food.
The results astounded scientists — birds always chose places for nests with low background radiation and muhalovki responded to radiation levels more palpable than tits.
American scientist Tim Musa California Institute states that the precondition may be that the highest level of radiation reduces the concentration of antyaksydantav. And yet — under the influence of radiation in male birds are changing spermatazoidy — swallows on American scientist studied These processes together with the French officer Andre Male Institute of the Pierre and Marie Curie.
Lively neighborhood around the reactor
Tim Male Musa and Andre study of animals and birds in the districts of the Chernobyl reactor in 2000. Previously they studied swallows. More muddy areas near the reactor — the dead, but with all this around looks so natural which can be assume that over time the effect of radiation decreases or disappears completely, but there is no scientific evidence of this.
Scientists offer a guess and to explain why preserved wildlife in the Chernobyl zone in the reactor: a prerequisite may be movement inside the animal population. Not all birds in the districts of Chernobyl vorachivayutsya to their old nests. Number of population supported the birds that come here for the first time and only for one summer.
Results of the study are located in the scientific journal "Proceedings of the Royal Society".
Riddles salt
A British "The Time" report the results of 15 years of scientific research to find confirmation — if indeed much salt harms humans. Despite the use of salt reduction projects, similar to those that many years produces British food standards agency (Food Standart Agency), the beneficial effect was insignificant. Salt producers sharply criticized calls to reduce the amount of salt in manufactured products. According to the Association of Salt (Salt Manufacturers» Association), to This time there is no evidence that reducing the amount of salt will benefit the health of most people. As for patients with the highest blood pressure, even in this case, one helps salt restriction, but for others — does not affect the pressure.
A group of scientists from the United States, Harvard medical school, taken long-term studies in the late 80s. They said that the results were unique confirmation that the decrease in the level of sodium can help prevent heart disease, so that reduce the amount of salt in food should not only unhealthy, and healthy people if they do not want to get sick. Or use a special salt to dry out the amount of sodium.
But for scientists to This time remains a mystery exactly how salt increases blood pressure. The most common explanation — when the body gets much salt, the kidneys can not be one hundred percent of its output, and the salt flagged vessels. As a result, the amount of water in the vessels increases and increases the volume and pressure of revelation. But not all people are sensitive to salt, because not many salt reduction in food can be useful, the researchers note.
