Back in 2016, French multinational corporation Saint-Gobain âfessed 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. Â
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. Â
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 âa monumental agreementâÂ to ensure …
Free Radicals might sound like the kind of band name you and your buddy, that guy with the keyboard and the bad perm, might have chosen back in the 80âs. Â
Itâs true to say that free radicals sound a lot cooler than they really are. Existing virtually everywhere in the modern world, free radicals are impossible to avoid. Â To labor the 80âs band theme again, like an aging rock star who has lived a wild and toxic life on the road: free radicals are unstable, slightly unhinged molecules trying to hook up with a nice, calming electron to stabilize them and settle down with.
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. Â This common type of dehydration is known as temporary dehydration.
Thirst Doesnât Come First
Itâs worth noting that although weâre sometimes guilty of waiting until we feel thirsty to drink, thirst isnât one of the early warning signs of dehydration. Â 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. Â
Chronic dehydration is more serious. Â Known to occur as a …
So, weâve laid bare the extortionate costÂ of bottled water and highlighted the practice of selling tap water in bottles at a hugely inflated profit. Â Persuading people to buy filtered tap water in a bottle with a slick label is quite a coup for the drinks industry. Â
BPA is Here to Stay?
But itâs not just the ever-rising cost to both your pocket and to the environment. Â Bottled water is problematic in other ways as well.
“Certain chemicals found in plastic bottles can have effects on every system in our bodies. Â They can affect ovulation, and increase our risk of hormonally driven problems like PCOS, endometriosis and breast cancer, among other things.”
Americaâs Water Infrastructure Report Card for 2017 is in and itâs fair to say that thereâs room for improvement.Â Itâs not exactly new news to talk about the state of Americaâs pipelines and how millions of Americans are drinking water that might be harmful to their health, but the report card highlights another aspect of the problem â the waste.
Many pipes were laid during the early-mid 20th century and have a lifespan of 75â100 years. Â There are an estimated 240,000 pipeline fractures every year and with an average annual repair rate of 0.5%, the repairs will take around 200 years to complete, by which time the pipelines will have been around …

“Housework? Â It canât 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 …
