Detox Your Veggies!

Posted by: Rhona Reid On April 5, 2018 12:00 pm

 
We all know that we need to eat plenty of fruit and vegetables to stay healthy.  Although most types of frozen, canned and dried produce count towards your daily total, nothing beats the taste of fresh, seasonal fruit and veggies.

How clean are your vegetables?
What’s On Our Veggies?  

But have you wondered about how those lovely tomatoes, salad leaves and bell peppers are produced?  If you buy organic or grow your own, then you can skip this. However, if – like so many of us – you tend to grab what’s on offer or looks great in the store display or farmer’s market, then read on.

Hair’s Some Good News About Your Water Ionizer!

Posted by: Rhona Reid On April 3, 2018 7:00 am

 
Did you know that your hair is acidic?  True story. Whether it’s short, curly, bedhead or a glossy mane: hair has a pH range of around 4 – 5.  

Fed up of fighting your hair?
Natural Balance and Bad Hair Days

When a shampoo is advertised as being “pH balanced,” it means that it has a similar pH to your hair.  Great right? That means that you’re not throwing out the natural balance of your crowning glory with nasty ol’ chemical shampoos?

Maybe not, but what about your water?  Most tap water sits between a neutral pH of around 7 and a more alkaline 8.5.  Rinsing your hair with water that isn’t pH balanced – even if your shampoo

What Kind of Spring-Cleaner Are You?  

Many people like to carry out a spring clean at this time of year.  For some, it’s little more than bundling away winter coats and shoes; for others, it means systematically going through each room, carrying out a deep clean and throwing out or recycling whatever isn’t nailed down (Hi, Mom!).

America Brings Home Report Card; Gets a D

Posted by: Rhona Reid On March 1, 2018 12:00 pm

 
America’s Water Infrastructure Report Card for 2017 is in and it’s fair to say that there’s room for improvement. It’s not exactly new news to talk about the state of America’s 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 – the waste.

Must try harder?
Pipe Down

Many pipes were laid during the early-mid 20th century and have a lifespan of 75100 years.  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

Official: Housework Might Be Harming Your Health

Posted by: Rhona Reid On February 27, 2018 7:00 am

 
“Housework?  It can’t kill you, but why take the risk?” goes the fridge magnet/meme/Birthday card for your sister.  

But within that little lol, is a grain of truth.  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.  If you use cleaning sprays regularly, then the impact can be the equivalent of smoking a full pack of cigarettes every day.  

Breaking News:  Cleaning really is bad for your health.
The Dangers of Chemical Cleaners

The research is pretty thorough, with scientists following 6000 test subjects over a 20-year period.  The findings observe that the chemicals inhaled from

A Raw Deal?

Posted by: Rhona Reid On January 18, 2018 12:00 pm

 
The latest trend that seems to be gathering attention in 2018 is the craze for drinking so-called “raw water.”

Raw Water is not necessarily pure water.

When a small, Oregon-based start-up company 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

Why Your Dentist Dreads Christmas!

Posted by: Rhona Reid On December 29, 2017 12:00 pm

 
Okay, maybe not dreads Christmas.  But dentists are hyper aware of the damage that sweet things such as candy and soda do to our teeth.  

Therefore Christmas, arriving as it does, on a fresh wave of sweetness in the wake of that great testament to candy itself, Halloween, poses all kinds of threats to our teeth unless we take extra good care of them.

This is the stuff of nightmares for your dentist!
The Usual Suspects

As well as sugar, many people often consume more alcohol than usual around the holidays.  Alcohol attacks teeth in two ways: firstly with the sugar it contains and secondly with acid, which damages enamel.  

So you clean your teeth and visit your

Crisis in Texas – Is Reverse Osmosis Water as Good as a Water Ionizer?

Posted by: Rhona Reid On October 3, 2017 7:00 am

 
Our thoughts are with all of those affected by Hurricane Harvey, and it’s wonderful to see the heroic relief efforts of individuals and the large-scale aid that has been arriving since the Tropical storm hit.  

Crisis is often followed by kindness.
Helping Those in Need

Among the companies delivering assistance – in this case 1 million bottles of water – is Nestlé, in an act of charity that will help to repair its image after recent negative publicity.  

Big Companies With Big Hearts

There was also a big-hearted offer from Blackwater Draw Brewing Company, promising that affected residents could collect as much water as they needed.  But this isn’t regular water – it’s reverse osmosis water, used in the
