In a Pinch: Have You Done the Pinch Test Today?

Posted by: Rhona Reid On May 24, 2018 12:00 pm

 
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?

No Kidding – Healthy Kidneys, Healthy You

Posted by: Rhona Reid On May 8, 2018 7:00 am

 
Unless we have a specific reason to do so, many of us don’t think too much about the health of our kidneys.  After all, if we’re in good health, then we can just assume that they’re happy enough getting on with the job of…of… actually, what do kidneys do exactly?  

We might be small, but we’re pretty important, y’know.

We know they filter stuff out, but what?  And how? More importantly, how can we help them to do it better and more efficiently?  

Bean There, Done That

Our blood circulates through the kidneys

LeeAnne Walters: An Everyday Hero

Posted by: Rhona Reid On May 1, 2018 7:00 am

 
The Goldman Environmental Prize is awarded to a small handful of people from around the world in recognition of their grassroots environmental activism.  

Heroes are not born, they are made…

Selected by an international jury, this year’s seven winners came from places as diverse as Vietnam, Colombia, South Africa…and Flint, Michigan.  

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,

There are a few foods that we tend to think of as being “healthy” choices that might be hampering your attempts to drop a few pounds rather than helping!

  • Not-So-Great Granola

There’s no doubt that granola is a delicious thing to eat and can be full of good, wholesome things: nuts, oats, seeds and dried fruit, to name a few.  Wholegrains are so good for us, with the potential to lower the risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes.

Filter Facts: Why a Water Ionizer Beats a Pitcher Hands Down

Posted by: Rhona Reid On April 17, 2018 7:00 am

 
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.  

Even the best jug filters can’t compare to 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

The Sins of Saint-Gobain?  

Posted by: Rhona Reid On April 10, 2018 7:00 am

 
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.  

Industrial waste: Leaking into the landscape
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

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
