“Housework? Â It canâ€™t kill you, but why take the risk?”Â goes the fridge magnet/meme/Birthday card for your sister. Â
But within that little lol, is a grain of truth. Â Research just published in the American Thoracic Society’s Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine has found that using chemical-laden cleaning products every day has a detrimental effect on lung health. Â If you use cleaning sprays regularly, then the impact can be the equivalent of smoking a full pack of cigarettes every day. Â
The Dangers of Chemical Cleaners
The research is pretty thorough, with scientists following 6000 test subjects over a 20-year period. Â The findings observe that the chemicals inhaled from …

The latest trend that seems to be gathering attention in 2018 is the craze for drinking so-called “raw water.”
When a small, Oregon-based start-up companyÂ started selling “pristine mountain spring water” to people in the San Francisco area, they tapped into the fashionable notion that the more “natural” something is, then the better for you it will be.
What is “Raw Water”?
Raw water is, quite simply, water that springs from the earth; or in this particular case, from “an ancient aquifer.” It is completely untreated and unfiltered.
One of several companies selling raw water around the country says that filtering and treating water to remove contaminants “disrupts healthy bacterias” that would …
A water ionizer is usually a bigger investment than a standard, faucet-mounted water filter, so how do they compare?
Whatâ€™s In the Water? With a point-of-use water filter, you need to start with your source water and whatâ€™s in it.Â No water filter of this kind is going to remove all organic, chemical and toxic contaminants.Â You need to know that the type of filter you opt for will take out the worst of what’s in your water.
A Tyent Water Ionizer filter has the same micron level and filtration capabilities as a kidney dialysis machine, removing over 200 contaminants including 99% of lead, and up to …
Great â€“ youâ€™ve decided to jump in and make the best possible decision for your health and family.Â Youâ€™re going to buy a water ionizer!Â So, where to start?Â As ever, weâ€™re here to help.
What to Consider Before You BuyÂ
Hydrogen. You need to find a water ionizer that naturally adds precious hydrogen to the ionized water.Â Some donâ€™t and it really matters.Â Tyent Water is brimming with natural hydrogen, minerals and antioxidants in every single glass.
Filters. We all know that Americaâ€™s water network is in a pretty desperate state, or heading that way.Â With an estimated repair bill of around $1 trillion, donâ€™t hold your breath for
Big question.Â The answer?Â Well it depends on your ionizer, your source water and how the two work together.
Source Water Worries
Letâ€™s look at source water first.Â Is your water contaminated by herbicides, pesticides, chemicals or even worse â€“ lead?Â The harsh truth is if you buy a water ionizer that doesn’t filter your source water properly, it can be dangerous.Â The reason?Â Well, some machines will process the water and produce alkaline water with a higher concentration of contaminants than the original source water.
Not good news at all.
Whatâ€™s in the Water?
Thereâ€™s also the “unknown” to factor in.Â Pharmaceutical companies are producing ever-more complex medicinal compounds.Â As …
A beautifully made Swiss watch or a traditional grandfather clock looks elegant and impressive on the outside, but conceals the real magic on the inside.Â Unseen, those myriad working parts all function together to produce something rather special.
Whatâ€™s Inside a Water Ionizer?
A Tyent water ionizer is a little like this.Â That sleek, chic casing looks amazing in even the most high-end kitchens but itâ€™s not a case of looks over substance.Â Inside a Tyent water ionizer machine are some of the most perfectly designed and executed working parts in the world.
How Does a Water Ionizer Work?
Your Tyent water ionizer is connected to your main …
Water ionizer plates are actually really fascinating to learn about.Â Whether your interest is mechanical, health-driven or aesthetic, ionizer plates are pretty fascinating things!
Why are Water Ionizer Plates so Important?
A water ionizer often rises or falls on a few key elements.Â One of those factors is the quality of its plates.
The electrically charged plates in an ionizer are a vital component in the ionization process.Â The filtered water flows over them in the electrolysis chamber enabling positive and negative electrical charges to pass through the liquid creating acidic and alkaline water.
The plates in a Tyent ionizer are something very special.Â We know …
My grandmother, like so many of her generation, was big on preserves and finding ways of storing any surplus for leaner times.Â Part of the preserving process included canning, which meant that her pantry shelves were lined with dozens of bottles and jars containing everything from beans and artichokes, to jams and chicken.
Among this vision of bucolic bounty, I remember my grandmother sternly telling me about why it was so vital to bottle foods safely.Â The poisonous spores of botulism thrive where good canning practice isnâ€™t followed, and that particular deadly toxin cannot be seen, smelled or tasted.
In other words, danger isnâ€™t always immediately obvious. …
