Chlorine – Drinking it Isn’t Your Only Problem!

Chlorine serves a good purpose in the municipal water system process.  After all, how could you recycle sewage and make it potable without it?  If your water comes from a  municipal system  you should be grateful that it’s  loaded with chlorine. Most people with chlorine water use some sort of filter to address their drinking water…

Misguided Priorities…No WONDER I Can’t Get Through to People!

Before I get bashed by the animal lovers and environmentalist I want you to know that I am both.  I fight every day to raise awareness about our environment and the damage that we’re doing to it  (and to our own health).  My family has always had a  dog or two and, although I don’t…

Weapons of Mass Destruction in The Hands of Americans!

Wikipedia Weapon of Mass Destruction:  A “weapon of mass destruction”  is  nuclear, radiological, biological, chemical or other weapon that can kill and bring significant harm to a large number of humans.  BPA laced plastic bottles are known contain harmful endocrine disruptors and carcinogens and yet the average American spends $640 a year on bottled water  alone.  That sure sounds like mass…

There’s No Such Thing as a Stupid Question BUT…

Since I do a lot of blogging, I pay close attention to the popularity of a topic as well as popular search engine terms so that I can make adjustments and modify my site visibility as needed.  Every once in a while I’m a little surprised at what people are searching for and some of…

No Thanks…I Don’t Do Knock Offs

I’ve never been one to fall for fakes.  If I can’t afford a Gucci bag then far-be-it-from-me to carry a “wanna be” around.  After all, even if I could fool the untrained eye, I would know that I was settling for second best and trying to pass it off as THE best. If I can’t…

Bring Back the Outhouse!

News from Scientific American: Only about half of the prescription drugs and other newly emerging contaminants in sewage are removed by treatment plants.

Do You Have A False Sense of Security Drinking Bottled Water? You Shouldn’t!

California has succeeded in getting BPA added to “Proposition 65” in an effort to WARN residents about the risks associated with this harmful chemical.  This is a bold step that will undoubtedly lead to multi-million dollar lawsuits from the beverage industry.  After all, if we’re crazy enough to keep buying toxic water they sure don’t…

Charge The FDA With Attempted Murder?

If I deliberately added arsenic to your food a little at a time I would be arrested for attempted murder.   So how do we explain away the fact that arsenic is added to our food with the approval of the FDA and with absolutely no guidelines on the size of the “dose”?    Hmm……

Water Not Fit For Pigs? Lovely….

Chinese officials report that they have fished out 900 dead pigs from a Shanghai river that is a water source for city residents.  It looks like there is a lot more floating in that river than just 900 dead pigs.   So far they haven’t found any evidence that 900 pigs were dumped into the…

Man’s Best Friend…Follow Their Lead!

Dogs have water taste buds on the tip of their tongues unlike their human friends.  If humans had water taste buds a lot more people would trash their bottled water and would be looking for healthier options. If you’ve never seen what dogs do when they’re introduced to Kangen Water you’ve missed a real treat….
