Did the ancient Maya have parks?
June 22, 2021
Researchers at the University of Cincinnati say Tikal’s reservoirs — critical sources of city drinking water — were lined with trees and wild vegetation that would have provided scenic natural beauty in the heart of the ancient Maya city. UC developed a novel system to analyze ancient plant DNA in the sediment of Tikal’s temple and palace reservoirs to identify more than 30 species of trees, grasses, vines and flowering plants that lived along its banks more than 1,000 years ago. Their findings painted a picture of a lush, wild oasis.

University of Cincinnati ear, nose and throat expert Ahmad Sedaghat, MD, PhD, says investing in an HEPA air purifier might be a good idea as residents open their homes to gatherings as COVID-19 restrictions ease. Air purifiers with HEPA filters can be used as a very effective means to decontaminate the air above and beyond what many HVAC systems may offer, says Sedaghat, director of the UC Division of Rhinology, Allergy and Anterior Skull Base Surgery.
