3rd International Caparica Conference on Pollutant Toxic Ions and Molecules 2019
Dear Colleagues and friends
The pollution is so intense in some places of our planet that life has become compromise in them.
A recent study involving more than 30 000 women in the USA suggests that endocrine-disrupting pollutants, EDPs, are linked to earlier menopause. Just as another study done over 2 732 women suggesting that polyfluoroalkyl Chemicals has the same effects as EDPs. And what to say about the recent report alerting the raising mercury content in tuna at a level of 3.8% per year since 1998? Countless examples can be given.
The question still remains: are humans driving the planet till dead?
This question will be answered, or better to say, try to be answered during the 3rd International Conference on Pollutant Toxic Ions and Molecules, PTIM2019 that will be held in November 2019 in Caparica, Portugal.

Hotel Aldeia dos Capuchos
Be aware of cold calls from Convention Hotel Services (CHS) or from someone named Adam Max! A company called CHS (Convention Hotel Services) is calling or e-mailing attendees of conferences worldwide, claiming to work for the conference organizers and asking for credit card details to finalize the booking of accommodation. If you receive such a call or e-mail, do not give away any personal information or credit card details! None of the parties involved in the organization of PTIM 2019 is working with CHS
We have received some alerts from participants this week regarding this email: Ehotel Services via DocuSign
If you receive such a call or e-mail, do not give away any personal information or credit card details! This problem affects many conferences, not only the PROTEOMASS BIOSCOPE conferences.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
With kindest regards
