Les besoins quotidiens en eau varient en fonction de la masse corporelle (30 ml d'eau par kilogramme), explique la nutritionniste Louise Thibault, professeure à l'École de nutrition humaine de l'Université McGill. « Et par boissons, on entend l'eau, mais aussi le jus, le lait, le thé, le café… », énumère Louise Thibault, qui souligne qu'en général, les gens obtiennent toute l'eau dont ils ont besoin en écoutant ce que leur corps leur dit.

When scientists from McGill University learned that some fish were proliferating in rivers and ponds polluted by oil extraction in Southern Trinidad, it caught their attention. They thought they had found a rare example of a species able to adapt to crude oil pollution.

Now, an international team of researchers led by McMaster University in collaboration with the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre has found that soap and water is actually less effective than just using saline water.

The findings, which were published in the New England Journal of Medicine, could lead to significant cost savings, particularly in developing countries where open fractures are particularly common.

The organisms commonly known as blue-green algae have proliferated much more rapidly than other algae in lakes across North America and Europe over the past two centuries – and in many cases the rate of increase has sharply accelerated since the mid-20th century, according to an international team of researchers led by scientists at McGill University.

When dams are built they have an impact not only on the flow of water in the river, but also on the people who live downstream and on the surrounding ecosystems. By placing data from close to 6,500 existing large dams on a highly precise map of the world’s rivers, an international team led by McGill University researchers has created a new method to estimate the global impacts of dams on river flow and fragmentation.

"An international team of chemists (from McGill and the RIKEN Institute, Japan) has reported a clean and green way to perform one of the most important industrial reactions for pharmaceutical and petrochemical synthesis. Platinum group metals are currently the catalysts of choice for hydrogenations due to their high activity.
