"KAD", a clay derivative mineral found in Australia, could eat up the world's toxic metal pollution.

Combined university researchers (University of Queensland and the Australian National University) produced the new material as an alternative to expensive "clever" chemicals in removing heavy metals including lead, copper and cadmium in solution.

Two important groups of nutrients found in breast milk but not in any commercial infant formula may hold the key to why breast-fed babies appear brainier, according to a Sydney paediatrician, Dr. Patricia McVeagh.

In The Lancet last year, the results of a published study of 300 eight year old children who had been born prematurely showed that most of those who had been breast-fed had "significant IQ advantage". Dr. McVeagh said for those children who received breast milk, the study had showed they had an average eight-point IQ advantage over the formula fed premature babies.
