Breathable Fabrics Are Not for Wetsuits Alone. So Many Other Usages Are Available

Posted by Lauren Yanez on Aug 24, 2011

Breathable fabrics are gaining in popularity day by day due to its great usability in different spheres of life.

A general person cannot even imagine how neoprene is getting used around the world these days. We all can name at least one very common product made of it “wet suits”. But there are so many other products made of the same stuff available in the market. Let’s have a quick look.

People are using breathable fabrics for great performances in extreme-weather sports and expeditions for its great insulation and protection against intense cold weather conditions.

These suits also offer you utmost freedom of movement apart from regulating optimum temperature and providing protective shield against harsh wind, rain, sleet or snow. These suits can even release excess body heat and perspiration as and when required.

Sport-stars use these fabrics to fight against hot, humid or other most extreme conditions around the world. These suits are almost a must for snow sports, equestrianism, Motorcycling & mountain-biking, parachuting, field and water sports.

Very common use of breathable fabrics can be found in wet suits or surf suits, fishing apparel and equipments, sports shoes and apparel, industrial shoes, casual shoes and medical care.

At the same time, some forms of neoprene is used to make Gaskets and die cut parts, Absorbers and insulators, Steam applications, Plumbing seals, Box liners and Weather stripping. Though neoprene foam is the primary material of most diving suits, Neoprene is a common material for o-rings.

Neoprene is very useful at elevated temperatures and is also used for heavy-duty applications. Neoprene rubber is a great elastomer with medium resistance to sunlight oxidation and some petroleum products.

Another advantage of neoprene is its medium resistance to water and selected chemicals. Neoprene rubber is used for rubber mats, rubber gaskets, and rubber strips.

Airprene, Ventoprene and Breathable fabrics are widely used as orthopaedic bandages and other medical supports for the treatment of muscle, ligament and joint strains, back supports and the management of long-term chronic conditions. Some of them work well with significant advantages over traditional Neoprene-based elasticised supports by stimulating the vasodilatation of blood vessels and improving blood flow to the affected area.

To add to all of the above, breathable fabrics are widely adopted throughout equestrianism, particularly in the design and manufacture of modern saddle pads and flatwork, training and mud fever boots.

One can even find these breathable fabrics are being used by horticulture specialists as a ground cover blanket to increase the development of shoots during the first five days of growth.

This is not all. So much more is yet to be written and discovered.

Tuna fish from Pacific Ocean is Radioactive (Contaminated by Fukushima Nuclear Fallout)

Posted by Lauren Yanez on Aug 23, 2011


Buy your Canned Tuna, Now?

Long term radiation effects, in Tuna?
With many of the long term effects from the Japanese Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant disaster still ahead of us, a serious consideration should be made regarding the food chain and the possible radioactive contamination thereof. In this example, let’s look at Tuna fish. Is it safer to buy canned tuna now, before possible contamination into its food chain?
They spawn in the Western Pacific between Okinawa and the Philippines and the Sea of Japan and they migrate over 6,000 nautical miles to the Eastern Pacific, eventually returning back to their birth waters to spawn again.
What do Tuna eat?
Tuna mostly eat small fish ranging from 1.5 inches up to 6 inches. Tuna will also eat squid, and very occasionally will consume crustaceans.
The small fish that tuna will eat include skipjack herring, flying fish, lancetfish, puffer fish, triggerfish and rabbitfish.

60% fish
20% squid
15% crustaceans

If tuna eat smaller fish like Herring, then what do the Herring eat?
Herring (a.k.a. trash fish) eat mostly plankton, as well as algae and some kelp.

If tuna eat squid, then what do squid eat?
Squids are carnivorous. The smaller species of squid mostly eat shrimp, and other small fish.
How could radiation enter the fish food-chain?
So now that we have an idea of what type of tuna is caught off Japan, and what it is that the tuna eat, lets hypothesize how radioactive particles could be ingested into this food chain.

We know that they have been dumping tremendous amounts of radioactive water into the Pacific ocean. This is the water that they have been spraying onto the reactors, fuel rods, and fuel pools while trying to keep them from entirely melting down. The problem is, there has been partial meltdown and the radiation is traveling with the water runoff, which is currently being dumped into the ocean (some water is being diverted into storage tanks).
Of much higher concern is Cesium-137, which has a half-life of 30 years (considered gone after 300 years). Of even higher concern is Plutonium-239 which has an unimaginable half-life of 24,000 years (considered gone after 240,000 years).
The radiation in the seawater is surely getting diluted, however fish are swimming in the water, and the diluted particles of Cesium and Plutonium will remain somewhere in the oceans for 300 to 240,000 years. Do you know how fish stay alive? They constantly are passing water through their mouths into their gills — never ending.
Not only do little fish stay alive this way, but also big fish. So, not only will big fish get their own radiation through water injection through their gills, etc… but the big fish also eat the small fish. Effectively then, they are getting More radiation.
The big fish are then caught for processing, distribution and consumption by humans.
Where does the ‘canned’ tuna come from?
About 68 percent are caught from the Pacific Ocean, 22 percent from the Indian Ocean, and the remaining 10 percent from the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea

When you open a can of tuna, you don’t know where the actual tuna was caught.

Odds are of course, that the tuna in that particular can may not have been caught off the shore of Japan — it could have been caught in any other number of places in the Pacific. Lots of these tuna migrate their way to the west coast U.S., but it takes awhile — years in some cases.

No doubt the food supply chain will be examined further as time goes on, particularly if the situation continues to worsen at the Fukushima nuclear plant (It’s already a level-7, the highest on the nuke disaster scale). True results may not be measured for many years to come while looking back at cancer rates.

No amount of radiation ingestion is ‘OK’ though. A single Cesium-137 particle stuck in your body could start the chain reaction that leads to cancer.
