The third annual Imagine a Day Without Water took place on the 12th October.  Schools and workplaces participated with utilities and water organizations to look at how much we depend on water.  

Can you imagine a day without water?
The True Value of Water

The recent hurricanes that have seen thousands of people having their access to clean, safe water cut off, highlight just how vital water is to our health and well being.

Posted by: Rhona Reid On October 24, 2017 7:00 am

 
Thousands of people every year are affected by breast cancer, either directly or indirectly.  According to the Cancer Statistics Center, 255,180 new cases are anticipated during 2017, which are projected to result in some 41,070 deaths from breast cancer across America before the year is out.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month 2017
Can We Reduce Our Risk Factors?

Despite these statistics, deaths from breast cancer have been decreasing since 1989, largely due to better detection rates through screening, increased awareness and improved methods of treatment.  

So what can we do to help our bodies stay as healthy as possible and actively lower the risk of being diagnosed with breast cancer?  

Diet is a vital factor.  Making your body

Are You Drinking Plastic Chemicals From Your Plastic Bottled Water? (Plastics Series: Part I)

Posted by: Rhona Reid On October 12, 2017 12:00 pm

 
The issue of what’s in the water we drink – and more worryingly – what shouldn’t be in it, has never been more pressing.  

What exactly are we drinking?

Nationwide scandals attached to the potential dangers of drinking tap water have prompted millions of Americans to ask the question, “what exactly are we drinking?”

Many have stopped trusting the municipal water supply altogether.  An obvious alternative? Bottled water.  Well, sure.  It’s convenient and available virtually everywhere.  Plus, it’s in a sealed, factory-produced bottle.  It’s clean and good for us, right?  Well, not always.  In fact the EWG has recently published a report on exactly why we should look very closely at the risks of drinking bottled water.

Water Ionizers – Know What You’re Drinking

Posted by: Rhona Reid On September 5, 2017 7:00 am

 
Anyone buying a bottle of Poland Spring Water would be pretty sure that they’re drinking exactly what’s advertised.  It’s produced by Nestlé – the world’s biggest packaged food manufacturer – so it must be a trustworthy product, right?

Nestlé has hit the headlines again.
“Colossal Fraud”

Not so, according to a lawsuit against the giant company, filed by 11 plaintiffs in Connecticut this week.

“A colossal fraud perpetrated against American consumers.”

~  Plaintiffs v. NESTLE WATERS NORTH AMERICA, INC.

The reason for the litigation?  Nestlé claims that its water comes from eight natural springs in Maine.  The claimants say that seven of those springs are in fact, man-made.  Instead of the pure spring water conjured up by labels and …

Ditch the Soda – Water Ionizers are Naturally Good for You!

Posted by: Rhona Reid On May 4, 2017 12:00 pm

 
It hasn’t been a great couple of months to be in the soda industry.  On 20th April this year a report was published by the America Stroke Association that appeared to draw a link between the consumption of artificially sweetened “diet” soda and the risk of suffering a stroke or dementia.  A further report from Beverage Marketing Corps pointed to the fact that Americans now officially drink more bottled water than soda.

We’ve woken up and started ditching the sugar.

Coca-Cola responded by announcing job cuts and a new CEO who, it is believed, will try to steer the mighty company towards “healthier drinks” that have more appeal for today’s consumer.

It is, by and large, …

Have You Got the Bottle? 

Bottled water is undeniably convenient.  Widely available to the point of saturation, to use a suitably watery metaphor; most of us are probably only a few feet away from a bottle of water at any time.

Handily, bottled water comes in lots of different guises to suit your pocket and tastes.  Mineral water, spring water…even alkaline water is available in a bottle.  Importantly, it’s also …

Behind “Safe” Bottled Water

Posted by: Rhona Reid On November 10, 2016 12:00 pm

Back in 2008, the Environmental Working Group (EWG) found that 10 top brands of bottled water contained contaminants such as disinfectant by-products, pain medication and fertilizer residue.

Toxic Waste Near Water

Even if the beverage industry has cleaned up its act since then, there’s still the worry that plastic leaches controversial carcinogen Bisphenal A (BPA) into the bottled water.  No one is certain about the long-term effects of imbibing the estrogen-mimicking chemical, so wobbly reassurances along the lines of “it seems to be alright so far…” is pretty much the best we have.

Portable Problems?

So how about using “safe” reusable plastic bottles instead?  When Treadmill reviews commissioned environmental testing laboratory services company EmPak P&K to test 12 different types of portable plastic water …

Posted by: Rhona Reid On October 18, 2016 7:00 am

 
There’s a whole lot of information out there about water ionizers and the incredible benefits that millions of people have enjoyed for years.  The medical establishment has weighed in time and time again with endorsements, and scientists are racing to make the next breakthrough when it comes to how ionized alkaline water can positively affect health.

Undecided?  We’ll try to help with that.
Undecided?  We’ll try to help with that.

But let’s be cynical for a moment.  Sure, all of that is true.  But still, is that reason enough to actually go ahead and buy an ionizer?  In other words, is buying a water ionizer really worth it?

What Are the Alternatives?

Well, first of all, let’s think about the alternatives.  America’s water supply and pipeline …
