According to this report published in January by the Environmental Working Group (EWG), 173 million people – around half of all Americans – have been exposed to radiation in their drinking water. Â That means an increase in the possibility of developing certain types of cancer and can also have a detrimental effect on fetal development. Â
The “Erin Brockovich” Chemical
By studying 50,000 water systems countrywide, the EWG found that millions of people across 50 states are drinking water that containsÂ radioactive contaminants; including the most commonly-occurring radioactive element, radium.
In Texas â€“ one of the worst affected states – up to 80% of homes are supplied with water containing potentially dangerous levels …
Itâ€™s entrenched in our learning from a young age – work hard. Â If you want to succeed, put the hours in. Slog away. Â
But we need to rethink that a little. Â Your brain isnâ€™t a machine. Â Itâ€™s a brilliant, complex, organic organ. Rather than flog it like a mule, to get the best out of your brain, you need to treat like a thoroughbred racehorse. Â
Weâ€™ve “brainstormed” five ways to improve your brainâ€™s performance by just making a few tweaks to your lifestyle.
Work smarter, not harder. Â Research shows that the brain responds most favorably to working intensively for 60 minutes followed by 10 minutes resting time. Â Itâ€™s known as

The third annual Imagine a Day Without Water took place on the 12th October. Â Schools and workplaces participated with utilities and water organizations to look at how much we depend on water. Â
The True Value of Water
The recent hurricanes that have seen thousands of people having their access to clean, safe water cut off, highlight just how vital water is to our health and well being. Â
Some communities in America already know how impossible it is to try to go a day without our most precious resource: Water. Â Imagine a Day Without Water 2017Â isÂ the thirdÂ annual day to raise awareness and educate America about the value of water.
We learned a little more this week about how lead ended up flowing out the taps in Flint.Â Researchers at the University of Michigan have released their forensic conclusions on how the crisis took shape.
The “Swiss Cheese” Evidence
Officials had put forward a claim that failure to add anti-corrosion chemicals hadnâ€™t impacted on the eventual contamination of the water.Â This assertion was undermined by the researchersâ€™ discovery of “a Swiss cheese pattern” in the aging pipework cause by corrosion.
The research team goes on to emphasize the importance of ensuring that anti-corrosion chemicals are used in all of Americaâ€™s aging water systems to prevent lead-laced water …
We love busting myths.Â Especially the ones that relate to water ionizers!Â The wonder of all of the information flowing freely around the internet is that inevitably, myths and inaccuracies start to emerge.
Weâ€™ve taken hold of 5 popular myths that seem to crop up regularly, in order to bust them!
Ionized Water is Like Regular Water. Well, why not start with the Big One?Â We know this myth inside out.Â Every drop of ionized water from a Tyent Ionizer is rich in minerals, antioxidants and natural hydrogen. Â Aside from the horror stories about whatâ€™s in our tap water, even regular water that doesnâ€™t contain lead or other scary contaminants cannot hold a
Ventriloquist and entertainer Terry Fator likes to joke that overnight success following his appearance on America’s Got Talent in 2007 was only 25 years in the making.
Before the Big Time
On the fringes of the business for years, the lowest point, Fator recalls, came when he was already disheartened after plugging away in small town fetes and theaters for years.Â Then one night, Fator opened a show in a 1000-seat auditorium, to an audience of just one person.
Never Stop Believing!
Despite the setbacks, Fatorâ€™s faith in himself somehow remained intact.Â Famously, his appearance on Americaâ€™s Got Talent changed everything.Â Following his success on the show, Terry went …
Reverse osmosis water units are important in survival situations or in war zones where the usual water infrastructure has broken down, for example.Â The idea is that dirty water is pumped through a semi-permeable membrane, which removes salt, some bacteria and other contaminants.
Want the Good News First?Â
The good news?Â It works.Â Nearly everything is removed from the water.Â The bad news?Â That includes the good stuff — the elements we need our drinking water to contain.
Thatâ€™s not a problem in the very short term.Â However, drinking reverse osmosis water as our main source of hydration carries a real risk of denying our bodies the essential minerals we need to thrive.
We all know that there are serious problems with Americaâ€™s water pipelines and infrastructure from coast to coast, so well water must be a better option, right?
Well, Whatâ€™s the Truth?
Well water gives an impression of natural purity, untainted by miles of aging, contaminated pipework.Â After all, people have drunk well water for hundreds of years.Â Lots of us have grandparents who drank water from their own wells, and they all lived to a good old age, right?Â Aside from that, some people donâ€™t have a choice â€“ not everyone is joined up to a municipal water source.
Times have Changed
True, but things are different now.Â Fracking, construction and …
Big question.Â The answer?Â Well it depends on your ionizer, your source water and how the two work together.
Source Water Worries
Letâ€™s look at source water first.Â Is your water contaminated by herbicides, pesticides, chemicals or even worse â€“ lead?Â The harsh truth is if you buy a water ionizer that doesn’t filter your source water properly, it can be dangerous.Â The reason?Â Well, some machines will process the water and produce alkaline water with a higher concentration of contaminants than the original source water.
Not good news at all.
Whatâ€™s in the Water?
Thereâ€™s also the “unknown” to factor in.Â Pharmaceutical companies are producing ever-more complex medicinal compounds.Â As …
When something is embraced by some of the biggest names in the health industry, itâ€™s time to sit up and take notice.
More health professionals than ever before are endorsing the incredible benefits of ionized hydrogen water; but which machine are they raving about?
You guessed it!Â Tyent water ionizers are the choice of so many health professionals and practitioners that we canâ€™t list them all here, but we wanted to give you an insight into what some of the leading lights in the health industry are saying!
Water Ionizer Times Two!
CEO of Willow Bend Fitness, Dave Greene was such a big believer in the benefits of the Tyent …
