Global Warming or Not…We’ve Got Huge Problems

Whether you buy into the global warming theory or not, you have to admit there have been some strange climate changes across the globe in the past few years. From record breaking heat waves and catastrophic droughts to deadly flooding.

If you haven’t been directly impacted by any of these events I wouldn’t breathe a sigh of relief just yet.  One aspect that should be of great concern to all of us  is how these changes may be directly affecting something we can’t live withoutour drinking water.

Both scientists and environmentalists are concerned that changes in our climate directly affect our water supply: an increase of water can spread about more pollutants, while rivers and lakes affected by droughts contain less water to dilute pollutants. While some states in the U.S. have made steps to counter the potential threats of climate change on regional water supplies (by adding more toxic chemicals), other states and regions have yet to follow, leaving many consumers to take extra measures to ensure the purity of their drinking water at home no matter what.

Isn’t it time that we take water seriously?  Are we so spoiled by having (what we perceive to be) an abundance of “safe” water that we don’t care about what we drink or when we drink it?

As for me and my family?  After much research and weeding through the countless array of water purifiers on the market (believe me,  it’s a daunting task to find the right product) we opted for Kangen Water®.  The creators of Kangen Water® have engineered a top-of-the-line water ionizer that removes harmful pollutants, retains vital nutrients, and electrically charges your water for optimal health and hydration.  The fact that this company has been producing these medical grade units for the past 40 years and that they are in use in hospitals around the globe is impressive and sets them apart from all others.  We will have healthy drinking water NO MATTER WHAT.  What about you?

Whether or not you believe the threats of volatile weather, one thing holds true; you may not be able to control the change in the climate, but you can control the water you drink.  Do it NOW!

Don’t Laugh All The Way To The Doctor’s Office!

phWhen I talk to people about the importance of maintaining a healthy pH balance in the body their eyes often glaze over and they look at me like I have three heads.  Some even attempt to explain to me that the body adjusts itself naturally and that we don’t need to do anything extraordinary to maintain a healthy pH level.  They seem to believe that the body is somehow on auto pilot and it has no need for “outside interference” at all.  Really?   Perhaps it’s time for a science lesson.

Most of us understand that the pH of soil must be maintained at just the right level in order for plants to flourish.  The ideal pH level for most plants is between 6.0-6.5.   The farmer works very hard to keep the pH in balance in order to produce the healthiest crop.   The soil is tested routinely and action is taken to balance the pH when it becomes necessary.  Most soil is overly acidic due to acid rain and other outside influences.  The most common remedy is to add lime to the soil to raise the pH to proper levels.

Many of us also understand that the water in a fish tank must be maintained at just the right pH level (6.5-7.5) or the fish will go “belly up” in the tank.  Without the proper balance, the acid waste from the fish will kill them.  Many natural additives are used to raise the pH like driftwood or pumping CO2 through the tank.  The pH level is tested routinely and action is taken to balance the pH whenever necessary.

It is common knowledge that (up to) 300 chemicals are used to “purify” municipal water so that recycled sewage can become potable (yuck).  In addition to chlorine, sometimes Chloramine, a combination of chlorine and ammonia, (which has proven to be deadly to fish), is added to the water when the “legal limit” of chlorine has been met and the water still needs further sanitation.   Municipal water must maintain a pH level of 7.0 (which is a “neutral” level) to reduce corrosion of the pipes that the water travels through.  The additive used to maintain this pH level is lye (aka caustic soda).

Apparently if we SEE dead plants, dead fish or leaky pipes we understand the importance of taking action to maintain the proper pH level but if it impacts the human body we won’t worry about it until someone with a medical degree prescribes a pill or a surgery in an attempt to treat the problem that was brought on by an acidic body in the first place.

The blood pH level must be 7.36-7.46.  This is a non-negotiable number.  If it doesn’t maintain this level death is imminent so the body will rob itself from any source that it can in order to maintain this level.  Unfortunately, most of us have a body that is on acid overload by the food we eat, the things that we drink (including bottled and municipal water), the air that we breathe and by our overall “toxic” lifestyle.  Unfortunately, the body needs a little help to maintain a healthy pH level with all of this acidic influence.  Leaving it on auto-pilot will result in severe health consequences for you and your family.

I may have 3 heads but the next time you’re tempted to glaze over when someone talks to you about how to maintain a healthy pH level,  you might want to listen up.  Your low pH level is most assuredly wreaking havoc on your health whether disease has manifested yet or not.  I wouldn’t want you to laugh all the way to the doctor’s office when there are healthy alternatives right at your fingertips.

Did you know that just by changing your water to ionized, alkalized, electrically charged water you can profoundly change your health?  In addition to balancing your pH level to an alkaline state,  the molecular structure of  this water will help you hydrate your body at the cellular level…something that isn’t possible when you consume tap or bottled water.

Your body is 70% water…it deserves 70% of your attention when it comes to health.  Drinking ionized, alkalized, electrically charged water is the single, most impactful step that you can take for health and wellness.

Bottoms-up, Boomers!

Our Troops Fight For You… Will You Fight For Them?

Erin Brockovich is rallying on behalf of Camp Lejeune victims of decades-long  toxic water contamination and their right for proper health care for the damage done as a result of their exposure.  What are YOU doing to fight for our troops?

erin

The Federal Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease shows that the decades-long case of drinking water contamination at Camp Lejeune is “one of the worst on record in the history of America”.

Tap water supplied to base housing contains toxic chemicals and known carcinogens including benzenevinyl chloride and trichloroethylene at levels that significantly exceed “legal limits”.  Veterans and their families have been poisoned at Camp Lejeune (and God knows where else) since 1948.  The civilian parallel for this type of damage would be  multiple life prison sentences but since this is a government “oversight” we’ll excuse it as a big mistake.  Tell that to the thousands of cancer patients coming out of Camp Lejeune for the past 50 years!  Veterans, fathers, sons, wives, children, grandchildren.  Is that any way to treat those willing to fight for you and for me?

“We knew the evidence was damning – now it’s historic,” said environmental activist Erin Brockovich. “Policymakers need to wake up and realize that Camp Lejeune is just one of the many tragedies playing out in our communities across the country.”

Of course Marine Corps officials attempted to deny wrongdoing, contending there is insufficient “reliable scientific evidence” to link the contamination to illnesses suffered by former base residents and their families.  The proof is in the epidemic level of disease and trace levels of documented toxic contaminants in all those tested.  I wonder what the Marine officials drink?

The fact that Erin Brockovich (and the White House) drinks Kangen Water should be a motivating factor for you.   Not tap water…not bottled water…not filtered Brita water…not “dead” reverse osmosis water or some wanna-be ionizer but Kangen Water.  The word Kangen means “return to origin”. ..the way water was before we managed to screw it up.  The way God created it.  Try it sometime.  Your body will thank you for it.

Bottoms up America.  If you trust your water source then perhaps the chemicals have already gone to your brain.  Why would you trust a system that has hidden this deadly contamination from our troops and their families since 1948?   Hmm….

Shhhh…Something is Killing Our Babies!

birth defect

There is something strange going on in Washington State and newborns are paying the price.  The state is suffering from a strange trend in birth defects and the medical officials are perplexed.   Maybe the medical community can’t put their finger on the underlying problem but you can bet somebody knows. I think it’s time to call in Erin Brockovich.

In 2012 and 2013 there were 25 babies born with a  rare condition called Anencephaly.  This is  400 times the national average. Anencephaly happens when the top portion of the neural tube fails to close during the first month of pregnancy.

The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke describes this condition as follows:

“A baby born with anencephaly is usually blind, deaf, unaware of its surroundings and unable to feel pain. Although some individuals with anencephaly may be born with a main brain stem, the lack of a functioning cerebrum permanently rules out the possibility of ever gaining awareness of their surroundings. Reflex actions such as breathing and responses to sound or touch may occur.  Most babies  born with this condition die soon after they are born.

It should come as no surprise that a nurse was the first to connect the dots about there being a higher than usual rate of Anencephaly.   In her prior 30 years of nursing experience she had only seen two other cases of Anencephaly so she was alarmed when she heard that her hospital had 2 cases of this rare condition back-to-back and then a third reported at a sister hospital.  That was 22 babies ago and counting.

Although health professionals are scratching their heads (and attempting to keep things quiet), these numbers are far from coincidental.  We may not be able to name the culprit yet but you can bet that the culprit is an environmental toxin and the problem is bigger and more wide-spread than you might care to imagine.  Our government is well aware of the price we’re paying for environmental toxins…just read Reducing Environmental Risk of Cancer…What we Can do Now and you’ll see how big our problems are!

The nurse who first called attention to this “epidemic” is convinced that the problem stems from pesticides used in local farming.  That’s a good possibility but water should not be ruled out either since it is filled with hundreds of chemicals known to cause disease.  Either way, environmental toxins are killing babies at record speed.  When is enough enough?

I sure hope the people in Washington State (and beyond) don’t dismiss this as a fluke and forget it ever happened.   Not only will the babies have died in vain, but it’s just a matter of time before environmental toxins rob them or someone they know of health and (ultimately)  life for generations to come.

These bizarre events were first brought to the public’s attention back in 2012.  So far, no progress has been made in finding a cause.  Go figure.

I Used To Be a “Free Radical”…Now They Are My Enemy!

free-radicals

I lived a worry-free life for a very long time.  I didn’t give a second thought to organic eating or a wellness protocol.  In fact, I made jokes about both.   It wouldn’t have occurred to me that “oxidative stress” had anything to do with the human body.  I was a “free radical” with good health and not a care in the world.   Then something strange happened….I woke up.  I’m fortunate that it didn’t take a major health crisis to jar me awake!    When I opened my eyes (and mind) I learned that there are HUGE health issues all around me that have little to do with age and everything to do with lifestyle and environmental exposure!

I learned that the cancer rate in America is 1 in every 2 males and 1 in every 3 females and that it is no respecter of age.  As the mother of 2 boys and 2 girls and the grandmother to a 1 year-old grandson the odds are too scary to ponder.  Cancer is wreaking havoc on our world and, from the outside looking in, it appears like we’re much more focused on a C U R E than we are about prevention.  Of course, that could just be the “free radical” in me speaking up!

I learned that the rate of autism is off-the-charts striking 1 in every 88 children across America.  As a military mom I am extremely troubled by the fact that these rates are HIGHER on military bases…1 in 68!   Hmm…looks like an environmental problem to me!   There goes that “free radical” spirit again!

I learned that “Free Radicals” were not a good thing and that if I didn’t do something to make changes in my own life, and to lead by example for the next generation(s),  these free radicals could literally be the  slow death of us all.

It’s painful to wake up and to assume responsibility BUT now I’m FREE to be RADICAL about our current health crisis and, in keeping with the personality of my younger years, I intend to be bold in the fight.  So…if I step on your toes from time-to-time it’s probably best to just push the delete button.  I’m not going anywhere and I’m not going to stop fighting for the next generation.  After all, I have a responsibility to “save” them from other “free radicals” like me too clueless to speak the truth.

Liver Problems for New Jersey Residents?

chemicals-and-cancer-hazardous-toxinsA train derailed in New Jersey this past week causing a tanker containing 25,000 gallons of vinyl chloride to slice open and land in a creek.   Although 70+ people have already been treated for exposure to contaminants,  the state Department of Environmental Protection  said that sensors were not measuring any amounts of the chemical at the site claiming that the vinyl chloride has “evaporated”.    Hmm…  Did it immediately leave the earth”s atmosphere or is it still lingering around for people to breathe?  Your guess is as good as mine.

Breathing the chemical, which is used to make polyvinyl chloride (PVC), a material used to manufacture a variety of plastic and vinyl products including pipes, wire and cable coatings and packaging materials, can make people dizzy or sleepy. Breathing very high levels can cause you to pass out, and breathing extremely high levels can cause death.

Here is what Wikipedia has to say about vinyl chloride:

According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), “vinyl chloride emissions from polyvinyl chloride (PVC), ethylene dichloride (EDC), and vinyl chloride monomer (VCM) plants cause or contribute to air pollution that may reasonably be anticipated to result in an increase in mortality or an increase in serious irreversible, or incapacitating reversible illness. Vinyl chloride is a known human carcinogen that causes a rare cancer of the liver.[16] EPA’s 2001 updated Toxicological Profile and Summary Health Assessment for VCM in its Integrated Risk Information System (IRIS) database lowers EPA’s previous risk factor estimate by a factor of 20 and concludes that “because of the consistent evidence for liver cancer in all the studies…and the weaker association for other sites, it is concluded that the liver is the most sensitive site, and protection against liver cancer will protect against possible cancer induction in other tissues”

Doesn’t sound to me  like some mildly harmful chemical that is inclined to evaporate completely on contact.  If high levels of liver cancer get reported by local residents at some point in the near future, they might think about calling Erin Brockovich.  I’m sure that she’d be happy to get to the truth about vinyl chloride contamination.

Where Oh Where Did The Cancer Go?

I go ballistic when someone corrects me about the high cancer rate in America today. I believe that a lot of people like living in the land of denial.  After all, if you don’t think about it then it can’t bother you, right?

As of this writing it is reported that 1 in every 2 males and 1 in every 3 females will be stricken with cancer at some point in their lifetime.  These aren’t numbers that I pulled out of a hat…these are the facts in America today!   But instead of focusing on WHY our cancer rate is so high, I have heard COUNTLESS people say…

“There aren’t more cases of cancer today – in fact, there are LESS.  The difference is that we have better means of cancer detection today than we did years ago so we’re able to find it early”.  

 What in the world are you talking about?  Do you have any idea how ridiculous that sounds?   What happened to all of those undetected cancer patients?  Let me get this straight.  You’re saying that they HAD cancer but we just couldn’t detect it? Did they die of unknown causes?  Did the cancer go away?  Is it hiding under the bed?

It is no wonder that we have major health problems in America today. We have our heads deep in the sand and we like it there.  It isn’t nearly as scary in there as it is out here without the benefit of those rose colored glasses.  Let me know how that works out for you.  With all of this modern cancer detection you should know that I’m DYING to know.
