Aerators should be regularly kept cleaned or replaced. The mesh in the aerator can collect lead debris, and then leach this toxic metal into the water passing through it. Aerators cap the ends of most drinking-water faucets. In some cases, they’re used to conserve water by reducing a faucet’s maximum flow rate; in others their primary function is to concentrate the flow of water so that it delivers more pressure and cleaning power. But these little metal cages also collect debris. Including lead. And unless you’re regularly cleaning out those aerators, you might be developing a toxic mini gravel field through which your drinking water must pass before reaching your glass or coffee pot. Indeed, one lead poisoning case in North Carolina involved a child (see link below): www.dcwater.com/waterquality/faqs.cfm

False-colored SEM image of the parasite Trypanosoma brucei gambiense (15 micrometers long) responsible for human sleeping sickness in Western and Central Africa. Human innate immunity is overpowered by this parasite through a mechanism that we have discovered in our laboratory. We have dedicated the past two decades to study the molecular arms race between humans and trypanosomes and discovered the importance of resistance to these parasites in human evolution.

Plumbonacrite is metastable form of basic lead carbonate hardly found in nature, as such this mineral has not been completely studied and its properties are not well known. In our research we are interested in the role it plays on the formation of the perovskite PbTiO3.
