Women in science, why so few ?

Figures that leave no doubt:

• only 28% of researchers worldwide are women

• only 3% of Nobel prizes are  awarded to women

• only 26% of women are researchers in France

A rare exception worth mentionning: Bolivia with its 63%  women researchers!

Despite the fact that more women than men today achieve high level education, women are largely underrepresented in scientific fields.

How to explain this "disenchantment" of women for science?

Perturbateurs endocriniens, les poisons de notre quotidien

La rédaction Les Echos, dans son dossier "Perturbateurs endocriniens, les poisons de notre quotidien"  zoome sur la présence silencieuse et non moins nocive de PE, au travers d'objets ou de substances du quotidien qui nous entourent. De l'alimentation au bien-être en passant par les cosmétiques, les perturbateurs endocriniens occupent bien le terrain, dans nos maisons et dans les média !

A défaut de pouvoir les éradiquer complètement, des alternatives pour limiter leur impact existent.


Air pollution: Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), what is the real issue?

Air quality is a major public health issue and a real concern for stakeholders. Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are among the major air pollutants. VOCs are defined as any compound of natural or anthropogenic origin that contains carbon and hydrogen (excluding methane). VOCs also include more complex substances where some hydrogen atoms may be substituted by oxygen, nitrogen, sulfur, or halogen atoms (especially chlorine or fluorine). These compounds are in the state of gas or vapor under normal conditions of temperature and pressure.



Time to clean-up !

The French magazine 60 Millions de Consommateurs scrutinizes in its publication « Traquez les molécules » the ingredients of 77 Home care products. « Some are chemical concentrates that should be reserved for very dirty areas or at risk, like factories or hospitals. In these mixtures, too much corrosive, irritant and allergenic ingredients."

Should industrials take the Hippocratic Oath « Primum non nocere » ?

Inorganic chemistry has emerged 4 billion years ago... our galaxy, planets, and fire have thus been born.


Mother Nature has invented organic chemistry that created our planet and Life 400 million years ago.


Man has developed chemical synthesis 100 years ago mainly by tracing the deadly oil that fled away for millions of years.


And in 100 years, man has polluted almost the entire planet, nature, rivers, the sea and even himself.
