Regular or Decaf? Keep The Caffeine…The Chemicals in Decaf Just Might Kill You!

Image result for cup of coffee images

Altering the state of the natural always comes with consequences.  From taking the fat out of milk to removing the caffeine from a coffee bean, the process behind altering the natural state (and sometimes the chemicals used to accomplish it) might surprise you!

I’m a serious coffee drinker.  I don’t drink gallons of coffee a day, but the few cups that I drink each day are one of my life’s greatest pleasures. A hot cup of coffee doesn’t just satisfy my taste buds, it conjures up a whole lot of memories of times spent with loved ones over a good cup of coffee.  It’s my “comfort food.”

I don’t load my coffee up with artificial flavors and I don’t buy coffee concoctions that I can’t even pronounce.  I LOVE the natural bold flavor of black coffee. I don’t want a fancy drip coffee maker or a “single serving” multi (artificial) flavored coffee option.  I don’t grind my coffee beans and I don’t use a french press.  I prefer an old-fashioned percolator.  The coffee is unbelievable and the sound and smells coming from the percolator make the coffee taste even better!

You wouldn’t catch me with a cup of decaf for all of the money in the world. If coffee works against me one day, and it causes me to lose sleep…I’ll lose the coffee before I’d switch to decaf.   Not only does it seem pointless to drink coffee with no “kick”, but if you’re a black coffee connoisseur like I am, you know how bad black decaf tastes! If  not for the fact that I HATE the taste of decaf, I may have listened to my “health nut” friends who have preached the dangers of regular/caffeinated coffee to me for years!  Boy, do they have a lot to learn about decaf!

Have you ever wondered how they take caffeine out of a coffee bean?  It certainly isn’t grown that way.  The label doesn’t say NON-caffeinated…it says DE-caffeinated. So how does it lose its caffeine?   A Methylene Chloride wash is the most common way used by the coffee industry to decaffeinate beans before they are actually roasted.  That even SOUNDS toxic.  The following description of Methylene Chloride was pulled directly from the OSHA site:   

Methylene Chloride

Methylene chloride, also called dichloromethane, is a volatile, colorless liquid with a chloroform-like odor. Methylene chloride is used in various industrial processes, in many different industries including paint stripping, pharmaceutical manufacturing, paint remover manufacturing, and metal cleaning and degreasing. The most common means of exposure to methylene chloride is inhalation and skin exposure. OSHA considers methylene chloride to be a potential occupational carcinogen.

So…coffee beans are washed in a chemical that is known to cause cancer just to remove the caffeine that some say is bad for your health? Does that make any sense to you?  If it does, I have some oceanfront property in Arizona that I’d like to talk to you about as soon as possible.

Do yourself a favor.  If you don’t want to partake of caffeine, the next time you are asked “Regular or Decaf” just pass on the coffee all together.  That’s the healthiest caffeine-free option when it comes to coffee.

Naturally, your coffee is only as good as the water it’s made with.  If you opt for tap water to make your coffee, you’re already signing up for hundreds of harmful chemicals (some know carcinogens) with the water alone.  Add in a little Methylene chloride and you’re good to go!

It May Not Be In Your Head But It Could Be In Your Brain!

brain in your head

Did you know that if your brain is dehydrated by as little as 1% you LOSE 10% brain capacity? With epidemic issues like Alzheimer’s, dementia, autism, ADD, ADHD, and depression, you SHOULD sit up and take notice of the importance of PROPER hydration before it’s too late!

It is reported that 75% of America is walking around CHRONICALLY dehydrated – despite consuming 1500 bottles of commercially bottled water EVERY SECOND in the USA!  Just imagine how many bottles we’d consume IF we were remaining hydrated!

Somehow we’ve convinced ourselves that we can easily (and safely) replace the need for water by swapping it out for another drink-of-choice.  That should come as no surprise since our physicians replaced “drink plenty of water” with “drink plenty of fluids” years ago.   Don’t kid yourselves…THEY KNOW nothing replaces the body’s need for water.  If they didn’t I.V. bags would be full of your drink-of-choice instead of purified water.  If you want to REGAIN or SUSTAIN your health, you NEED plenty of water. Although you may not die of thirst if you continue to consume fluids of one kind or another; you WILL pay the ultimate price with your health for not drinking healthy water.

Your brain (and all of the rest of you) needs water. In fact, water is the most important nutrient for the human body!  So, if water is that important to the body, don’t you think that the quality of the water is equally important?  

Most of us care more about the quality of our wine than we do about the quality of our water.   There is something very sad and very bizarre about that thought process.

No doubt Americans DO need to hydrate the brain.  It seems like we’ve forgotten some pretty basic things about health and the human body.

From Colon to Brain? That Ought to be Enough to Make Anybody Drink!

 Don’t expect to sustain good health if you refuse to drink plenty of healthy water!  When the body falls short of water for normal activities like digestion and elimination of wastes, it has a built-in survival mechanism to draw from its own water reserves.  The body miraculously prioritizes the needs.  It will always extract water from “lower priority areas” like the colon and then will transfer it to areas of higher importance like the brain, heart and so on.  Now that’s a nasty thought!  Water from your colon to hydrate your brain?  That alone should be enough incentive for you to be sure you remain properly hydrated with safe, healthy water!

It is important to understand that when water reserves have been exhausted from a low priority area like the colon, it will then draw from the next lowest priority areas such as the joints, skin and so on.  Over time, if the body is forced to draw upon its own reserves because its water needs are not being met, a range of seemingly unconnected symptoms will begin to manifest.  Symptoms of dehydration can include aches and pains such as headaches and joint pain, constipation, digestive imbalances like acid re-flux, skin issues, asthma and even depression as the brain is deprived of water.

Dehydration is nothing to take lightly.  Before you rush off to treat your symptoms with medication, get serious about giving your body what it needs to maintain proper hydration.  Absolutely nothing takes the place of water.  If you doubt that, try filling a fishbowl with your favorite energy drink or water your plants with a Starbucks coffee.  The human body is NO different…nothing replaces the need for water, no matter how much “water” is a part of what you’re drinking!  

If you’re committed to drinking water for your health and wellness, doesn’t it make sense that you understand a little more about what kind of water you’re drinking?

I think they’re worth it.

Do YOU think you’re worth it?

No Wonder Kids Are Hormonal!

Bisphenol  (BPA) was first  invented in 1891 and was intended to be used as an artificial estrogen.   It was quickly replaced by an estrogen enhancer called “DES” with even more potent estrogen properties.   By the way, DES was later taken off the market when it was linked to reproductive cancers in girls born to mothers taking DES during pregnancy.  (Clearly an early warning signal for the similar toxic properties confirmed for BPA years and years later).

No worries…BPA  hasn’t gone to waste!  It may not have lasted long as a prescription hormone enhancer but we get it “over-the- counter” for FREE in hundreds and hundreds of products!  It is used to manufacture our hard plastics, our soft plastic water bottles, epoxy lining of metal food cans, even canned infant formula is laced with BPA in spite of the recent movement to mandate “BPA- free” baby bottles.  Oh..and to be sure that we don’t miss the opportunity to add more toxins to our children you can find BPA in dental sealants that help “prevent cavities”.

Is it really any wonder why our children are suffering from obesity, cancer, and early puberty?  These things are NOT just a generation that has “evolved”…they are the result of exposure to harmful toxins!  It’s time to get our heads out of the sand and to be willing to fight for the next generation.   Lets stop throwing them under the bus for the sake of convenience.

One very simple and yet very powerful thing you can do to protect the next generation is to STOP buying bottled water and STOP drinking tap water loaded with chemicals INCLUDING hormones not filtered out of human waste in the “water treatment” process.

Mommy…What Did You Eat and Drink 10, 20, 30 years ago? Uh oh…

Research studies report that there are as many as  287 industrial compounds, pollutants, and other chemicals found in the umbilical cords of newborn babies.  How sad that our babies are contaminated and biologically aged before we hold them in our arms for the first time!    Here is the risk break down of the chemicals found:

-180 of these chemicals are know to cause cancer in humans

217 are toxic to the brain and nervous system

208 cause developmental problems

Is it any wonder that the cancer rate in America is 1 in every 2 males, 1 in every 3 females and that Autism is striking 1 in every 50 children?  WAKE UP!

The Presidents Cancer Panel study conducted by NIH in 2008-2009 says this:

Page 129 – In addition to exposures that directly or indirectly damage DNA, evidence suggests that some environmental agents may initiate or promote cancer by disrupting normal immune and endocrine system functions. The burgeoning number and complexity of known or suspected environmental carcinogens compel us to act to protect public health, even though we may lack irrefutable proof of harm.

Did you catch that?  Exposures that DIRECTLY and INDIRECTLY damage DNA?

Page 111 – It is vitally important to recognize that children are far more susceptible to damage from environmental carcinogens and endocrine-disrupting compounds than adults. To the extent possible, parents and child care providers should choose foods, house and garden products, play spaces, toys, medicines, and medical tests that will minimize children’s exposure to toxins.  Ideally, both mothers and fathers should avoid exposure to endocrine-disrupting chemicals and known or suspected carcinogens prior to a child’s conception and throughout pregnancy and early life, when risk of damage is greatest.

Parents and grandparents, its time to take serious action.   Dietary caution throughout pregnancy isn’t enough.   Avoiding harmful exposure AND detoxing of existing contaminants is vital.  Where do you begin?  Start with the basics.  Your body is made up of 70% water…IT MUST BE THE BEST that you can find.    Water in toxic bottles that make claims about being from some natural spring (ha!) is NOT a healthy option.  Tap water that is known to contain up to 300 chemicals just to make it potable is NOT a healthy option.  Brita-type filters that filter out some of the contaminants and leave the water highly acidic is NOT a healthy option.  As for me and my family and all of the generations to come the answer is Electrolyzed Reduced Water.   I sleep better at night knowing that my family is drinking medical grade, restructured HEALTHY and, in my opinion PERFECT water.  How about you?

Disease, behavioral problems, autism, and a multitude of other things will continue to challenge the generations to come UNLESS we take action NOW.  Just by changing your water, you can profoundly change your life!

Are You Clever or Wise When It Comes To Cancer?


Einstein“A clever person solves a problem. A wise person avoids it.” ― Albert Einstein

Are you willing to take serious steps to AVOID Cancer or are you clever enough to hope there is a cure for you if you get it?  The American Cancer Society was founded on May 23, 2013 and we aren’t any closer to finding a cure for cancer (or any other disease whatsoever) than we were over 100 years ago.    What we DO have is knowledge from Nobel Prize for Medicine honoree Dr. Otto Warburg who discovered the ROOT CAUSE of disease (including cancer) in 1923 – he was awarded the prize in 1931.  In simple terms, cancer stems from a body in the state of acidosis (not alkaline enough) AND cells that are oxygen deprived.  With the rate of cancer in America at 46% – 1 in 2 males and 1 in 3 females it sounds like we might want to focus more on what CAUSES cancer. As Einstein said “a clever person solves a problem...a wise person AVOIDS it”.  It’s time for wisdom.

Are you willing to…

Toss your bottled water packaged in containers with chemicals KNOWN to cause cancer or is the convenience worth the risk to you and your family?  Bottled water is also VERY ACIDIC which only serves to worsen the state of acidosis!

Are you willing to take whatever steps necessary to avoid the chemicals and the chlorine in your city tap water? Sorry…a Brita-type filter won’t do the job!  It takes SERIOUS measures to have SAFE and HEALTHY water in your home!   Did you know that chlorine is one of the leading causes of breast cancer in women?  Remember, whatever you are exposed to on the outside is absorbed into the inside!!!

Are you willing to forgo processed foods and the convenience of having what you want when you want it or is the convenience worth the risk to you and your family?

Are you willing to reconsider cleaning products that contain harmful chemicals (including mercury) or has the marketing worked so well that you believe these products worth the risk to you and your family?

Are you willing to avoid all GMO products that are known to cause cancer and are hormone disruptors or is the perfect looking food worth the risk to you and your family?

I’ve made serious and “inconvenient” changes for family.  It’s worth it to me.  I’ll take wise over clever any day!

America…Fat, Dumb & Happy! How does it feel to be scammed…again?

Isle of bottled water

I don’t know who coined the phrase “fat, dumb and happy” but it sure seems fitting to describe the American mentality when it comes to bottled water.

In spite of so much opposition about bottled water; the business is booming.  Bottled water is the biggest seller in any grocery store and it occupies more square footage than another other product; taking up a entire isle or two of space all on its own.  Now THAT’S a big business.

In 2015, total bottled water sales in the U.S. hit 18.8 billion dollars – an increase of 7% over 2014.  This equates to approximately 34.1 gallons of bottled water per person (imagine what it would be if Americans were actually hydrating with water!), according to sales figures provided by Beverage Marketing Corporation.   At this rate it is estimated that bottled water sales will exceed soda sales by the year 2017.  While that might be considered a move in the right direction; bottled water is no healthier for the human body than soda is!  A fact that most “smart” consumers are missing.

The money to be made selling filtered tap water, fake “spring” water and water touted as “alkaline” water ( made alkaline with things like baking soda) is so promising that the Beverage Marketing Corporation will sell the report that you need to identify your own water scam for a mere “4,995.00…downloadable of course.  After all, time is of the essence when it comes to losing valuable scam time doing research on their own!   The bottled water rip off makes Bernie Sanders look like Donald Duck.  I wonder if this report includes the fact that it takes 5 liters of water and 4 cups of crude oil to produce a 1 liter bottle of water OR that these plastic water bottles aren’t being recycled any more than I am?  I wonder if “fat, dumb and happy” Americans would even care if they knew?  Hmm…

bottled water industry report

The 2015 numbers are the highest total volume of bottled water ever sold in the U.S.; an appalling fact in a world with low water supplies and high rates of unemployment.  No doubt disasters like Flint, Michigan and the Elk River West Virginia (chemical spill that contaminated the water supply) hasn’t helped as we shipped truckload after truckload of bottled water into communities for relief.  No doubt the flood in Louisiana will increase bottled water sales for a season as we ship truckload after truckload of plastic water bottles into communities already  struggling to clean up trash and debris.  No doubt the fact that the U.S. has spent $20 million shipping bottled water to our troops in the Middle East just so that it can sit in dangerously high temperature warehouses while we know that these conditions make bottled water toxic.  Is that the way we thank our troops for their service?

Bottled water companies are laughing all the way to the bank and here we are..fat, dumb and happy.  As long as it’s convenient who cares what it costs or if it’s healthy?  Sounds a little like the fast food mentality, doesn’t it?  Oops…most bottled water drinkers will take offense to that comparison, for sure.  After all, most of them have actually convinced themselves that they’re better off drinking bottled water than any other water available to them.  Hmm…and they think they’re experts.

I make my own endless supply of electrolyzed reduced water at the push of a button and in the comfort of my own home for pennies a gallon and I sleep a lot better at night because of it.  Of course, I do have the major inconvenience of putting a bottle under the tap and filling it up but I think I can handle the added inconvenience and I KNOW my body can handle safe & healthy drinking water a whole lot better than it can toxic bottled clear fluids marketed to Americans as “water”.  Just sayin’…

Drink up America!  Apparently ignorance IS bliss.

You Just THINK You Don’t Use Splenda! Think again!

splenda

People like sucralose—the artificial sweetener marketed as Splenda—because the human body can’t break it down and use it. That means the substance has almost no calories and makes it a popular ingredient in everything from cookies to diet sodas.  Unfortunately,  wastewater treatment plants can’t break down Splenda either.   Don’t look now but although flushing the toilet make things disappear from site, it doesn’t mean we won’t be reintroduced to it later when we drink water from a municipal system.  Recycling sewage is no easy task!  Yum!

Samples of wastewater were taken from seven wastewater-processing plants in Arizona. For at least 48 days, the water was run through both anaerobic and aerobic biological batch reactors, systems designed to use natural processes to break down wastes. None of the samples showed a significant decrease in the amount of sucralose aka Splenda present.   Based upon these results, you can bank on Splenda being present in bottled water too.   Water bottling companies get their water from a local municipal water source and they don’t come close to filtering tap water to this degree!

So, it looks like you get a little Splenda (right along with a multitude of other chemicals and prescription drugs) whether you like it or not!   “Cheers” to your mystery fluids!

I wouldn’t drink tap water or bottled water (aka tap water by a different name) for all of the money in the world.  My family drinks ONLY electrolyzed reduced water and I sleep a lot better KNOWING that they are getting the healthiest, chemical-free (Splenda-free) water on the planet.   Nope…its not cheap….but neither is the health of my family.  I took care of our water needs once and for all.

I don’t cut corners when it comes to my most precious and prized  “possessions”.    I don’t even want to know how many thousands and thousands of dollars I spent on toxic water in a bottle before I invested in my own ionizer.  Now THAT’S a scary thought.

How about you?  Will you continue with the “out of site, out of mind” mentality OR will you do whatever it takes for the sake of your health?   Think about it the next time you flush.

Don’t Be Taken for Granite…the Ultimate Sacrifice for “Quality”?

granite_countertops_03The health risks of radon gas have been clearly recognized by organizations such as the National Academy of Sciences, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the World Health Organization, the American Lung Association,  the American Medication Association and the EPA.

Radon is a known human carcinogen and is estimated to be the second leading cause of lung cancer.  Only smoking causes more lung cancer deaths.   Radon is responsible for about 21,000 lung cancer deaths every year

The primary source of radon is from uranium in soils and rocks. Over time uranium decays into radium, which then decays directly into radon.  Radon gases naturally permeate from granite counter tops.  The EPA says that ANY level of radon is an “unsafe” level of radon.

With lung cancer rates 2nd only to smoking, I’d reconsider those beautiful counter tops if I were you.   They may symbolize affluence in the home but luxury loses it’s dazzle in the midst of cancer.

Is Living in America Bad For Our Health, Ladies? Apparently so…

As we fight to raise awareness about breast cancer in America we need to also need to diligently pursue answers for prevention.  From where I’m sitting prevention is far more appealing than the need to cure.

I found this quote within the “Reducing Environmental Cancer Risk…What We Can Do Now” cancer panel report that is available to everyone FREE of charge.  This report was produced by NIH for the White House in 2008-2009.  Although it isn’t easy reading it is a MUST READ for every American.

Read this quote more than once…it should make you go “hmm”:

… [breast cancer] incidence has stabilized in the U.S., but it’s stabilized at one of the highest rates in the world, and as women move from lower risk regions of the world to the U.S., their incidence goes up and continues to rise over a couple of generations. So we know that that’s not genes and there’s something about industrial society that’s playing an important role.

Julia Brody – Silent Spring Institute

Reducing Environment Cancer Risk…What We Can Do Now” 2008-2009

There is a whole lot that we can do to avoid exposure to things that are known to cause cancer however, since water is 70% of your body it only makes sense that it should be 70% of your attention when it comes to prevention and health.

Tap water is laced with chemicals that are known to cause cancer and yet; we drink it, we shower in it and we wash our foods with it.  Does that make sense to you?  There’s nothing like playing Russian Roulette when it comes to exposure to cancer causing chemicals!

Bottled water has enough problems of its own not the least of which is the bottle it’s stored in.  The BPA in the plastic water bottles is laced with chemicals known to cause cancer and disrupt hormones and yet; we buy it by the case and we offer it to our children.

If you want to get serious about avoiding things like breast cancer then you better get serious about your water!!

 

There is a water option that is scientifically proven to be of great benefit to the human body….an unbeatable immune system booster and the healthiest and the best “anti cancer” water you can drink.  Curious?  I sure hope so.  Otherwise just brace yourself for chemo and radiation sometime in the near future for you or someone you love.  The statistics don’t lie…and neither does the science.  Just by changing your water you can dramatically change your health!
