What’s the newest advancements in water technology? Can we talk about cacti for a moment? Those iconic, prickly stalwarts of countless movies and cartoons depicting dry, airless deserts are amazing things and we don’t use the word lightly. Like any other living thing, cacti need water to live. As they usually live in parched, arid conditions, cacti have developed incredible systems in order to survive.
Those prickles are actually leaves, modified to prevent roaming animals from eating the plant, but also to conserve water. Their roots are shallow but spread widely, in order to grab as much rainfall as they can, given the opportunity. Some varieties of cacti can soak up 200 gallons of …
Did you know that there is a really easy way to find out whether your body is properly hydrated or not?
Give Yourself a Pinch!
Your skin’s elasticity is a brilliant indicator of how well hydrated you really are. To test, pinch the skin on the back of your hand and let go. If it snaps back into place and returns to normal immediately, then congratulations, you’re hydrated!
If it doesn’t and your skin maintains the “pinched” shape for a couple of seconds, then don’t ignore it; you need to drink more water. If your skin – your body’s biggest organ – isn’t properly hydrated, then what about the vital internal organs that you can’t see?

A Short History of Environmental Heroism
Just after Flint officials notoriously switched the city water source in April 2014 to save money, LeeAnne Walters started to become concerned that the water she and her four children were drinking was harmful.
She was, of course, right, but proving it was a struggle. State authorities didn’t want to listen and LeeAnne worked tirelessly with the EPA and Marc Edwards, a …
Let’s not beat around the bush. If we ignore for a moment all the important benefits of hydrogen alkaline water and look purely at the issue of filtration, it’s no secret that there are cheaper ways to filter your water than with a water ionizer.
At some point, many people consider buying a jug filter. Pitchers are cheap and easy to use, but how do they really compare?
Putting You in The Pitcher
Even the most high-end and technically advanced filter pitchers have only a tiny proportion of the capabilities of a water ionizer. They remove some impurities from your water and make it taste better, but quite often, …

Back in 2016, French multinational corporation Saint-Gobain ‘fessed up to releasing carcinogenic chemicals from its premises in Merrimack, New Hampshire, causing private wells in the area to become contaminated though the local groundwater.
Bottled Water Hand-Out
Following the spill, bottled water was provided to residents with a private well within a one-mile radius of the plant, which meant supplying around 400 properties with bottled water.
The state gave Saint-Gobain strict deadlines to fix the problem, requiring the 350-year old corporation to conceive, design and install a water treatment solution to clean up the contamination.
A Satisfactory Solution?
Flash forward to March 2018, and state officials have reached “a monumental agreement” to ensure that …
Most of us know how it feels to become temporarily thirsty, and then slaking that thirst with a long, cool drink that restores our bodies to a healthily hydrated state again. This common type of dehydration is known as temporary dehydration.
Thirst Doesn’t Come First
It’s worth noting that although we’re sometimes guilty of waiting until we feel thirsty to drink, thirst isn’t one of the early warning signs of dehydration. By the time we feel thirsty, our bodies are already experiencing other signs of dehydration, such as needing to urinate less and having a dry or sticky mouth.
Chronic dehydration is more serious. Known to occur as a result …
