The One-Minute Meeting
The week began with one Consumer Product Safety Commission member saying the CPSC might issue a ban on the gas stoves used by millions of American homes and businesses. But then the chair of the commission said no such ban is being considered although there could be some tighter regulations on the pollutants that the stoves can send in your home. Various studies show that 12% of current childhood asthma cases in the US can be attributed to gas stove use and 94 cities have already regulated their installation in new buildings.

Overall, cancer cases in the U.S. have dropped by a third since 1991 according to a medical journal for clinicians. The main reasons for the progress are new treatments and drugs that have led to significant drops in leukemia, lung cancer and liver cancer.
After all the news coverage about protected documents showing up in properties used by President Biden and former President Trump, I thought it might be a good time to explore what the differences are in how documents are classified. There are three levels of protection depending on how much damage releasing the documents might pose.
Global beer sales are dropping. A report from Berenberg Research, found that Gen Z is drinking 20% less per capita than Millennials, who in turn, drink less than Baby Boomers and Gen Xers did at the same age. And some market experts believe that legalized marijuana sales may be hurting beer sales. Analysts say for a dollar of medical marijuana sold, alcohol revenue, on average, declined between 74 and 84 cents. In a separate study involving Washington state, researchers found that legalizing marijuana resulted in alcohol sales declining by 15%.
