Scientists have identified a link between waterborne nitrate and the risk of developing prostate cancer, according to research published in recent days.
The findings, led by the Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal), indicate that nitrate consumed in tap water over an average adult life can be linked to patients developing prostate cancer, and should be considered a risk factor. The research goes further, suggesting that the results are even more marked in cases of ‘aggressive tumors,’ and prostate cancer in younger men.
Nitrate in water is already linked to colon cancer, and these medical findings underline the scary nature of waterborne contamination. But what exactly is nitrate and how does it get into tap water in the first place?…
By anyone’s standards, French bulldog Bethanee Hamilton is a survivor. Abandoned on a roadside by a heartless previous owner, Bethanee (then called Princess) was sent to a local dog shelter. During routine surgery, she suddenly flatlined, before thankfully regaining consciousness.
There followed a turning point in Beth’s troubled life – an intervention by the Pacific NW Bulldog Rescue (PNWBR), a bighearted organization dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of English and French bulldogs in need of a secure and loving place to live.

2. Eat well. You already know that you need to be eating fresh fruit and vegetables every day, but make sure that you also include whole foods, grains, olive oil, nuts and seeds. Cut right down on red meat, refined, processed foods and anything with added sugar.

The reason why big-name food and beverage companies are acting now is that the writing is well and truly on the wall: cutting out certain plastics from your life can reduce your risk of cancer.

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.
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?
What is the Colon and What Does it do in the Body?
The colon, or large intestine, is the final stage of the digestive tract. It is here that water and salt are absorbed from food and waste is stored for excretion. Basically, the colon is a filtration center for the body that mostly screens waste from water and useful salts.…

Plumbing is one of the great innovations of modern society and a sufficient public water supply should not be taken for granted. However, most water that flows from the tap in the USA is not safe for long-term consumption because of the chemicals and hard metals it contains.
As such, tap water should always be filtered through a water ionizer before it is consumed and Tyent alkaline water ionizers are the perfect appliance to filter and alkalize your tap water.
Five Reasons to NEVER Drink Unfiltered Water
Water Treatment Is Not Sufficient
The same practices that were used to treat public water decades ago are still in use today. Basically, water …
