Antioxidants and Free Radicals: What You Need to Know

Posted by: Rhona Reid On March 29, 2018 12:00 pm

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 80’s.  

Wanted: Easy-going electron with calming influence to tame unstable Free Radical.

It’s 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.  To labor the 80’s 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.

Oxidative Damage

But it doesn’t

Water, Water Everywhere…

Posted by: Rhona Reid On February 7, 2018 12:00 pm

 
It sounds obvious, but water is everywhere at the moment.  From Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water cleaning up during awards season; the reckless craze for so-called “Raw Water”; the fact that South Africa’s Cape Town is about to reach Day Zero when the water runs out, and closer to home, that America’s own water supply is barely out of the news these days.  

Water is making headlines every day.
What Do We Want From Water?

Water is big news.  Of course it is, it’s a massive part of our lives.  We depend on it for life itself and yet we’re all guilty of wasting it from time to time.  So how did we become so complacent

The Environmentally Friendly Odd Couple?

Posted by: Rhona Reid On January 30, 2018 7:00 am

 
Back in November last year we talked about America Recycles Day, a great cause supported by Keep America Beautiful.

We all need to do more of this.

Now, it’s easy to think about the bottled water industry being right at the other end of any “Earth-friendly” scale, but some recent news is heartening and perhaps surprising.  

Planet-Friendly Partnership

On January 17, at the 2018 Keep America Beautiful National Conference, the International Bottled Water Association (IBWA) announced that it would be sponsoring the Keep America Beautiful initiative. 

“We stand committed to helping Americans better understand recycling and its potential for economic, environmental and community benefits by working with all stakeholders—manufacturers; the waste management industry; government entities; other nonprofit

Resolution?  What Resolution?

Posted by: Rhona Reid On January 25, 2018 12:00 pm

 
If you’re among the just-over-half of the population who didn’t make a New Year resolution, then by now you might fall into one of two camps.  The first is being oblivious to the whole thing and simply getting on with life without the pressure/pleasure of a self-imposed goal to work towards.

Does your Near Year resolution look something like this?

The second camp includes those who look on with a touch of envy at the bright-eyed fervor of those winning at their resolutions.  They have a goal.  A “thing.” Something to help pass the long, decidedly un-festive January days.  Dry January?  Veganuary?   At this stage of the month, if you haven’t given something up, then you might be feeling

Don’t Start Your New Year Detox Until You Read This!

Posted by: Rhona Reid On January 9, 2018 7:00 am

 
It’s here…that time of year when we look to our less healthy habits and try to quit them, or at least improve them where possible!

Eating whole, fresh foods is a great way to detox.
Let’s Get This Detox Started!

One popular way of kick-starting a new, healthy approach is by detoxing. For some, detoxing is giving up one or two things – alcohol for example – and for others, it’s about cleansing your system and heading into the New Year feeling refreshed and healthier.

Extreme Clean?

While a few people favor an extreme approach to detoxing, for most of us, that’s not practical or desirable.   Much more realistic is our simple, 3-point version that will enable you to

  • Share.  In the next month, I will encourage one family member or

Drowning in Plastic – The Ocean Story

Posted by: Rhona Reid On November 9, 2017 12:00 pm

 
The Mariana Trench in the western Pacific Ocean is almost 7 miles deep.  Its perpetually black depths are commonly referred to as the most remote place on the entire planet.  Extraordinary creatures survive in the dark with water pressure of eight tons per square inch.  But something else has been discovered in this inaccessible ocean trench.  Astonishing levels of man-made pollution, along with plastic bags and soda cans.  

There’s nowhere left on earth that’s safe from pollution.
Plastics on the Menu

We’re steadily choking our planet with plastic, according to recent research.  Up to 13 million tons of plastic finds it way into our oceans every single year, where it can then be ingested by wildlife.  Of course,

The 80-20 Rule For Weight Loss (Unique Ways To Improve Your Life Series – Part III)

Posted by: Rhona Reid On November 7, 2017 7:00 am

 
No matter how it’s dressed up or presented, successfully losing weight depends on eating the right things, in the right quantities for your body and level of physical activity.  If you are consistently consuming more calories than you burn, then you’re not going be dropping a dress size anytime soon.

Get smart about reaching a healthy weight.
Indulge and Still Lose Weight!

All very simple in theory, but it’s harder in practice to eat “right” the whole time.  Sometimes, a slice of pecan pie can reach places that a raw quinoa salad can’t.  

Wouldn’t it be great if we could be disciplined for – I don’t know – some of the time and allowed to indulge a little as
