2. Listening to soft voices can cause “Brain Orgasms” (aka autonomous sensory meridian response) A video of a woman explaining how to fold towels has over 900,000 views because her voice can trigger the sensation.

I did watch it. Not sure about the Orgasmic bit but intriguing enough I did watch it to the end as her voice is particularly calming.

Microplastics found in 93% of bottled water tested.💦

This is from an email sent to me from Emma Deangela, Best-Selling Author, and Nutritionist

Emma is a great advocate for maintaining an alkaline body for prevention of deterioration of our health.

This is her article below

Microplastics found in 93% of bottled water tested.

In the study mentioned, they tested 259 bottles of water from 11 brands in the United States, Thailand, Mexico, India, Brazil, Indonesia, China, Kenya, and Lebanon – the major brands include Aqua, Aquafina, Dasani, Evian, Nestle Pure Life and San Pellegrino.

The research team found out that 93 percent of all bottles tested contained some sort of microplastic, including polypropylene, polystyrene, nylon, and polyethylene terephthalate.

The shocking part of the study shows that on average, there were 10.4 particles of plastic per litre that were 100 microns (0.10 mm) or bigger.

While smaller particles were also discovered, 314 of them per litre, on average!

Of course, it differs from bottle to bottle: while some contained one, others contained thousands.

How true is the study?

Well, two brands, Nestle and Gerolsteiner, confirmed their internal testing showing their bottled water indeed contained microplastics, even though their internal tests showed much lower levels than that of the study.

I’m not sure how you feel after reading this...

Many research has also established that these plastics can pass through the lining of your gut, and may end up residing within an immune cell in your gut.

And because plastic is not degradable, they could inflict irreversible damage to our digestive system and internal organs.

Leading to diseases like ADHD, autism, a lower sperm count and even certain forms of cancer.

What I would suggest is

1) Avoid bottled water as much as possible.

2) Use a refillable bottle instead.
It’s much safer than the bottled water and it’s environmentally friendly too.

Of course, I would add to this,  suggesting you get our Kangen Water machine and then you can be sure you have healthy ionized, 9.5 PH drinking water. I mean we have for years been sold a bill of goods that we need to drink at least 2 liters a day. If you are not drinking proper ionized, alkaline water then yes minerals will be washed from your body and the toxins from the plastic bottles will remain in your body.

Kangen Water® was developed to be a medical device in Japan over 40 years ago and more than three decades of clinical studies have shown that Kangen Water enhances the self-healing power of the human body. (Research documentation available upon request)

Your body is continuously oxidizing just like an apple that is cut in half and left on a counter. Antioxidants (Molecular Hydrogen) stabilize free radical cells that cause premature aging, wrinkles, weak immune systems, and in time, diseases.

Molecular Hydrogen is the strongest antioxidant in the world and I’m very thankful for Mr. Oshiro & Enagic for providing this technology to everyone.

The Japanese have the longest life expectancy in the world and I can see why.
Change your water, Change your life!

When you see the price of these brilliant water machines you will probably think that they are costly but take a good look at the diagram below and observe the figures and you will find over the years that your unhealthy bottled water will be far more expensive, in not just a financial way, but also the cost of  ill health.

“The [bottled water] industry grossed a total of $11.8 billion on those 9.7 billion gallons in 2012, making bottled water about $1.22/gallon nationwide and 300x the cost of a gallon of tap water,” Colas says. “If we take into account the fact that almost 2/3 of all bottled water sales are single 16.9oz (500 mL) bottles, though, this cost is much, much higher: about $7.50 per gallon, according to the American Water Works Association. That’s almost 2,000x the cost of a gallon of tap water and twice the cost of a gallon of regular gasoline.

This method is preferred to the civilian method of tucking it under your chin and pulling up the pillowcase like a pair of pants because these ladies have no interest in letting 50 pillows a day come into contact with their faces.

4. fire usually moves faster uphill than downhill – This is because heat rises; if a fire is going uphill the flame from the top of one tree would burn the bottom of the tree above it, causing that tree to burn and continue to the next tree. They also move faster uphill because fires need oxygen, fuel, and heat to burn. If you hold a match and its is burning the correct way it will burn slowly down to your fingers. If you turn that match upside down it burns faster and will burn your fingers.

How To Cure A Hangover

images

Overdid it? – Here are some suggestions to regain the will to live

1. Researchers from a University in Guangzhou, China tested how 57 different drinks affected the way the body metabolizes alcohol, concluding that Sprie was the most effective at eradicating the effects of the previous night.

2. Eat a big bacon and egg fry up. Eggs contain an amino acid called cysteine which breaks down acetaldehyde, just as your poor liver would. Bacon too has amino acids which will help you feel better. Also eating a greasy meal before you start drinking slows the rate at which you absorb alcohol, so now you have an excuse to eat it before and after a night out.

 

3. In Proof: the science of booze, science journalist Adam Rogers  says the ‘Hair of the dog that bit you’ – i.e. alcohol, may lessen a hangover’s effects though he cautions this is hypothetical. Worth a shot?

 

4. Drink lots of water cause you are going to be dehydrated – idiot. I know, ‘you are never going to drink again’ – heard it before! – I think those words are from  me.

For thousands of years, until 1883, hemp was the world’s largest agricultural crop, from which the majority of fiber, fabric, soap, lighting oil, paper, incense, and medicines were produced. In addition, it was a primary source of essential food oil and protein for humans and animals. Hemp seeds contain all the essential amino acids necessary for health. The oil from hemp seeds has the highest percentage of essential fatty acids and the lowest percentage of saturated fats.
