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,

Three Healthy Foods That Will Stop You Losing Weight!

Posted by: Rhona Reid On April 19, 2018 12:00 pm

 
If you’re hoping to shed a few lingering winter pounds by the summer, then eating right will be on your radar about now.  

Looks healthy? Check again…

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.

However, that crunchy, feel-good bowl of yumminess might also be packing a

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

Coal Ash Ponds – Are They Contaminating Your Water?  

Posted by: Rhona Reid On March 22, 2018 12:00 pm

 
Look, don’t shoot the messenger, but there’s something else to worry about in America’s water.  

Is there coal ash contamination near your town?

Bosses at coal-burning power plants country-wide are required to file reports with the Environmental Protection Agency this month, looking into the toxins that are being released into groundwater from vast, unlined “ponds” containing coal ash and debris.

“Coal ash ponds need to be addressed as potential environmental and human health issues.”

~ Avner Vengosh, Professor of Earth and Ocean Sciences, Duke University

Coal Ash Court Cases

130 million tons of coal ash is produced each year.  Arsenic, Chromium-6, mercury and radium are just a few of the dangerous substances potentially leaching into the water supply.

Will Air and Water Borne BPA Change the FDA’s Tune?

Posted by: Rhona Reid On March 20, 2018 7:00 am

 
It’s almost funny.  The FDA is militant about not allowing perfectly edible and delicious unpasteurized Camembert and many other legendary cheeses into the country, but it is far more laid back when it comes to the controversial chemical BPA – linked to low birth weight and certain types of cancer.

More dangerous than carcinogens in your bottled water?

According to the FDA, unlike a decent wheel of Brie de Meaux, BPA is “probably alright in very small doses.”  We’re paraphrasing here, by the way, but you get the gist.

Narrow Sighted?

“Probably alright in very small doses” is fine when you’re talking about certain things.  Cleaning your teeth with the kids’ toothpaste for a day because you’ve run

Bottled Water – The Biggest Con of All?  Part II

Posted by: Rhona Reid On March 15, 2018 12:00 pm

 
So, we’ve laid bare the extortionate cost of bottled water and highlighted the practice of selling tap water in bottles at a hugely inflated profit.  Persuading people to buy filtered tap water in a bottle with a slick label is quite a coup for the drinks industry.  

Ingredients: Tap Water
BPA is Here to Stay?

But it’s not just the ever-rising cost to both your pocket and to the environment.  Bottled water is problematic in other ways as well.

“Certain chemicals found in plastic bottles can have effects on every system in our bodies.  They can affect ovulation, and increase our risk of hormonally driven problems like PCOS, endometriosis and breast cancer, among other things.”

~ Dr Marilyn
