    30 minute PBS documentary. The rise of industrial-scale chemical compounds has helped increase our quality of life in substantial ways. In the 1960's, the promise of "better living through chemistry" made benefits of these new substances seem limitless. However, man-made chemicals have also contributed to pollution and contamination of our air and water. Despite efforts such as the Clean Air and Clean Water Acts, dangerous chemicals still persist in places that might surprise you. Researchers at ASU are studying this problem and finding solutions.

      In the 1960’s, the rise of industrial-scale chemical compounds made the promise of “better living through chemistry” seem limitless. However, man-made chemicals contributed to pollution and contamination of our air and water. Despite regulation and clean-up, potentially dangerous new “contaminants of emerging concern” are appearing in places that might surprise you – even as innovation makes our lives ever easier. Explore the history and future of contaminants as researchers at ASU investigate this problem and search for practical solutions. Produced, shot and edited by Kirk Davis for OKED

        The story of the American West is a story of water, and of our Herculean efforts to capture and spread that water across an arid landscape. As our western cities continue to grow, however, we need to find ways to curb our thirst. In this mini-documentary, ASU researchers talk about the West's water history, our current situation, and some social and technological options for the future. Written, produced and edited by Kirk Davis for the Office of Knowledge Enterprise Development Additional Editing: Jennifer Berky Additional Cinematography: Alexander D.

                  Bone loss is a serious problem for astronauts. That's why NASA partnered with researchers at ASU to bring an Earth science technique into the medical realm, detecting bone loss earlier than previous methods allowed. Now, the ASU researchers are working with Mayo Clinic to provide early detection of bone disease in Earth-bound patients. This video was produced by Eight, Arizona PBS.

                    Americans today are surrounded by an overwhelming abundance and variety of foods--many of them laden with sugar, salt and fat. ASU nutrition professor Christopher Wharton talked about how our food environment contributes to food choice at OKED's inaugural Discovery Cafe in March 2012. He also discussed the health and environmental effects of these choices, and ways we can create a healthier future. This video was produced by Kirk Davis.
