On March 24, a leak at the Trinseo Altuglas chemical facility in Bristol Township, Philadelphia caused up to 120,000 liters of latex emulsion to spill into the Delaware River.
Concerned residents were told to continue to use tap water for the days immediately following the incident. The reason for this is the contaminated river water would take time to reach and enter the water treatment plant, and from there, the taps of local homes and businesses.
Stay Calm & Drink the Water?
Within hours, store shelves were cleared of bottled water. Repeated assurances from officials that the tap water was – for now – safe, failed to quell the panic buying. Years of headlines about water contamination scandals have …

Coca-Cola and Simply Tropical fruit juice have been hit with a class action lawsuit after the “simply natural” drink was found to contain levels of PFAS – “Forever Chemicals” – that exceed ‘safe’ limits hundreds of times over.
Incidentally, even mentioning ‘safe limits’ of PFAS – the collective name for around 12,000 chemicals linked to a number of serious health issues – is a contradiction of terms, after the EPA announced last year that no amount of PFAS is safe.
Forever Chemicals Under the Microscope
Back to Coca-Cola. Part of the legal case is the marketing emphasis on how pure the product is, leading customers to believe that they are drinking a safe, healthy product. What isn’t …

Examples of acidic food and drink include meat, …

A healthy immune system is something we all want. We already know that eating plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables helps to support the immune system, but did you know that alkaline water from a water ionizer is a key way to really shore up your immune response?
Alkaline Water is Different to Tap and Bottled Water
Let’s recap what alkaline water is. Ionized alkaline water is produced by a water ionizer machine. Tap water flows into the unit where it is filtered. The clean water then passes over and around electrically-charged titanium and platinum plates which subject the water to a process called electrolysis. This splits the water into two streams: alkaline and acidic. Alkaline water has a naturally …

In October last year, research scientists in Italy made the shocking discovery that microplastics are passed from mother to baby in breastmilk. The same team found microplastics in human placentas during research in 2020.
34 test subjects were monitored and microplastics were identified in 75% of the breastfeeding mothers’ milk.
Microplastics & Your Body
We should perhaps not be surprised, as gloomy as the news is. After all, microplastics are everywhere – in the air, our food and packaged drinks. In separate research, microplastics were found in human blood, which means that they are being transported around the human body and organs 24/7.
Your body does not expel all microplastics. It’s too soon to be able to …
