Russian metals giant Nornickel collapsed on May 29

Russian authorities said the fuel spill at an Arctic power station earlier in 2020 was the largest in world history, a top emergencies official said Thursday. Some 21,000 tons of oil poured into the surrounding ground and waterways near the city of Norilsk after a diesel oil tank belonging to a subsidiary of Russian metals giant Nornickel collapsed on May 29.

“Such an amount of liquid diesel fuel has never been spilled in the history of mankind,” the state-run RIA Novosti news agency quoted Deputy Emergency Minister Alexander Chupriyan as telling reporters.

“We already trapped [the fuel] in the Arctic zone,” he said.

A team of Nornickel-funded scientists, meanwhile, struck a more optimistic tone with their discovery of the five polluted rivers’ self-cleaning abilities, according to their final report cited by the state-run TASS news agency Wednesday.

 

“The microflora in the studied waters has adapted to oil products and is able to participate in their decomposition,” said members of the so-called Great Norilsk Expedition organized by the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences in August.

Nornickel is currently contesting a $2 billion damages claim with Russia’s state environmental watchdog. A different Nornickel-commissioned report said last month that the oil spill was “inevitable” due to design flaws, management failures and rising temperatures in the region.

The food industry has their fingers all over our nutrition research. According to a new analysis, one out of every eight leading, peer-reviewed studies on nutrition is tied to business.

Even worse, this conflict of interest, although acknowledged explicitly within the scientific journals, tends to produce results that favour business, and potentially with misleading consequences. "This study found that the food industry is commonly involved in published research from leading nutrition journals," researchers write."Where the food industry is involved, research findings are nearly six times more likely to be favourable to their interests than when there is no food industry involvement."

As far as the authors know, this is the first systematic review on the extent and nature of food industry involvement in peer-reviewed research. Similar studies focusing on industry involvement have produced mixed results, but far more research is needed. In recent years, as industry ties to scientific research have begun to surface, many have lost trust in nutrition science and some have called it a 'credibility crisis'. Whether or not that distrust is justified is something independent scientists and businesses have been trying to prove ever since.

These new findings support growing evidence and rising concerns that competing interests are contaminating the field of nutrition and dietetics, even at the most reputable journals. The findings also suggest this involvement is skewing results. Skimming articles from the top 10 nutrition journals in 2018, researchers in Australia found 13 percent of all the 1,461 papers selected for the study reported food industry involvement.

Of all the different manufacturers, those involved in processed food had ties to the most scientific research, making up 40 percent of all business-involved studies.
