Here I Go Again – Bottled water – No No No💦

Here she goes again, I know, but this is a serious matter for our environment, our childrens hormonal health in the future, everyones health.

This is a 17 minute video which you really need to watch. I found this information on Dr Mercolas web site. His article confirming that most bottled water is contaminated with micro plastics and extremely harmful.

My friend Julie Bezett has just photographed and videoed in her area of the plastic overload in the rivers and the sea. The destruction of the environment wether it be in our sea, on the land or our intestines we need to think twice before we purchase water in these plastic containers. There are containers that are environmentally compatible, cost more but certainly a better option.

 

Alternative of course Kangen Water. Not because I am a distributor, its because I believe it to be the best machine on the market. Producing the best quality.

4.  Hold hands to feel better – Partners of women in labour have normally held their hand during this process. There is now scientific proof that holding your lovers hand helps reduce the pain that they are feeling. It is to do with “interpersonal synchronization” where partners heartbeats and breathing synch during shared activities. A US study of 22 couples found that just sitting next to each other led to a physiological synch-up, but that stopped when pain appeared. If they touched hands though, the couples breathing and heart rates aligned again, and the pain reduced.

Change Your Water – Change Your Life Story

Kangen Water - Change your water, change your life!

Enjoy Wellness with Alkaline Kangen Water®

Staying hydrated plays a crucial role in maintaining overall wellness. So why choose Kangen Water® for your hydration needs? You have already learned many of the benefits of Kangen Water®. Now let’s hear what world-renowned biochemist Dr. Otto Heinrich Warburg once said about alkalinity, and the part it plays in achieving better health.

Otto Heinrich WarburgOtto Heinrich Warburg

In his ground-breaking research, Warburg found that all forms of unhealthy cells are characterized by two basic conditions: high acidity and lack of oxygen. In fact, alkalinity implies higher concentration of oxygen molecules, according to Warburg. He explains that when water molecules split, “if there is an excess of H+, [it] is acidic; if there is an excess of OH- ions, then it is alkaline.” Lack of oxygen is a very serious and dangerous environment for a cell. Even if you deprive a cell 35% of its oxygen for just 48 hours, it may become damaged.

For better health, Warburg insists that cells need an alkaline environment. Since unhealthy cells cannot survive in the presence of high levels of oxygen, they cannot survive in an alkaline environment. This is why it is crucial to consume an alkaline diet with negative ORP (Oxidation Reduction Potential).

Where can you find a water that supports wellness based on Dr. Otto Heinrich Warburg’s findings?

Alkaline Health – Part 3

glasses

Water –  I have always been suspicious about what goes into the water anywhere in the world, that we drink from our taps and  the water we shower with. I have always used bottled water or jug filtered water showers, well not so much. Only now to find that not only does it become expensive it does not filter out all the bad elements in the water and bottled water has been found to have contaminants.
You may say what has this to do with Alkalinity? – Everything. The  Ion Exchange machine that Erin Brockovich talks about  produces water that has a high PH, a recipe for good health.

The video below is Erin Brockovich being interviewed and explaining the problem in the town of Flint USA and several other towns and cities. What we need to do to safeguard our water supply to our homes. She has also suggested the Ion Exchange resin filter (the filter we have just invested in) should be attached to our taps for drinking  and or showering.
It is rather interesting and only about 5 minutes long

The report below is another reason why we decided to buy this particular water filter and why we have gone into the business of selling them because I believe every household should have one even if you have a rain water supply. People everywhere are discovering the life-changing power of Kangen Water® . If you are interested click below and it will explain everything about this filter system. Take the time to look through this site as it has a lot of great information and also a lucrative business opportunity

New report finds chromium-6 in drinking water
By Susan Scutti, CNN
Updated 7:27 PM ET, Wed September 21, 2016
 
(CNN) Dangerous levels of chromium-6 are contaminating tap water consumed by hundreds of millions of Americans, according to a national report released Tuesday, September 20, 2016.
 
Chromium-6 is the carcinogenic chemical that was featured in the popular 2000 movie “Erin Brockovich,” starring Julia Roberts as the titular activist. The US Environmental Protection Agency has never set a specific limit for chromium-6 in drinking water.
 
There is scientific uncertainty regarding safe levels of this chemical in drinking water and possible long-term consequences of ingestion. But this new analysis from the Environmental Working Group, an independent advocacy group, examines evidence from water systems throughout the nation and concludes that the tap water of 218 million Americans contains levels of chromium-6 that the group considers dangerous.
 
“Whether it is chromium-6, PFOA or lead, the public is looking down the barrel of a serious water crisis across the country that has been building for decades,” Brockovich said in a written statement Tuesday, blaming it on “corruption, complacency and utter incompetence.”
 
Specifically, the new report indicates that levels of chromium-6 are at or above 0.03 parts per billion in 75% of the samples tested by local water utilities on behalf of the EPA between 2013 and 2015. Seven million Americans receive tap water with levels of chromium-6 that are higher than the legal limit established by California – 10 ppb – which is the only state to enforce a maximum contaminant level.
 
All these figures may be confusing, but the real point is that chromium-6 is one of many chemicals in our environment, said Bill Walker, co-author of the report and managing editor of the Environmental Working Group. The group receives grant money from the Turner Foundation, which is chaired by CNN founder Ted Turner, who is no longer involved with the news organization or any Turner entity.
 
“Americans are exposed to dozens if not hundreds of other cancer-causing chemicals every day in their drinking water, their consumer products and their foods,” Walker said. “And what the best science of the last decade tells us is that these chemicals acting in combination with each other can be more dangerous than exposure to a single chemical.”
 
What is chromium-6?
 
Chromium is a naturally occurring element found in rocks, animals, plants, soil and volcanic dust and gases, according to the National Toxicology Program.
 
It comes in several forms, including what is commonly called chromium-3, an essential nutrient for the body. Chromium-6, which is rare in nature, is produced by industrial processes. Chromium-6 is used in electroplating, stainless steel production, leather tanning, textile manufacturing and wood preservation, according to the National Toxicology Program (PDF). Chromium-6 is also found in the ash from coal-burning power plants and used to lower the temperature of water in the cooling towers of power plants.
 
Scientific reports have indicated that breathing in airborne chromium-6 particles can cause lung cancer. Based on these reports, the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration sets strict limits for airborne chromium-6 in the workplace.
 
By contrast, although it lacks a specific limit for chromium-6, the EPA has established a drinking water standard of 100 parts per billion for all forms of chromium. This limit was established in 1991 based on scientific information at that time indicating that large quantities of chromium were toxic.
 
In 2008, a two-year study by the National Toxicology Program found that drinking water with chromium-6 caused cancer in laboratory rats and mice.
 
“In terms of cancer studies, that is the gold standard of animal studies,” said David Andrews, co-author of the report and a senior scientist with the Environmental Working Group. He said a separate scientific study (PDF) found a higher incidence of stomach cancers in workers routinely exposed to chromium-6.
 
Based on the 2008 report and other research, scientists at the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment set a public health goal of 0.02 parts per billion in tap water. The new report notes that the scientists believe this level would pose only “negligible risk over a lifetime of consumption.”
 
Still, Walker and Andrews say this is a problem. Exposure to very low levels at crucial periods during the development of a fetus, infant or child could cause “much more serious problems” than it does for an adult drinking a larger dose, Walker explained.
 
In 2014, California regulators adopted a legal limit of 10 ppb as the state’s enforceable standard: 500 times higher than the public health goal established by scientists. New Jersey and North Carolina government scientists independently assessed a health-based maximum contamination level for chromium-6 that is only slightly higher than California’s.
 “They essentially confirmed what California found. The difference is minimal,” Andrews said.
 Unregulated contaminants
 
For its report, the Environmental Working Group reviewed the EPA’s third Unregulated Contaminant Monitoring Rule.
 
“The EPA periodically does this: goes down and looks for what it calls unregulated contaminants,” or chemicals in drinking water that are not regulated, Walker said. The EPA gathers its information through local utilities and then takes the results “under advisement,” according to Walker.
 
According to the group, the report indicated that only one public water system had total chromium exceeding EPA standards, but 2% of the water systems – 1,370 counties – had chromium-6 levels exceeding California’s standard of 10 ppb.
 
Oklahoma, Arizona and California had the highest average statewide levels and the greatest shares of detections above California’s public health goal of 0.02 ppb, the report found. Of major cities, Phoenix had the highest average level at almost 400 times this health goal. St. Louis County, Houston, Los Angeles and Suffolk County, New York, also had relatively high levels.
 
“EWG’s report is another wakeup call that we must take this issue seriously,” said New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, a member of the Environment and Public Works Committee, who this month introduced an amendment to require testing of all public water supplies for unregulated contaminants.
 
The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality said in a statement that it weighed all of the scientific evidence and “does not anticipate excess cancer risks from chromium-6 concentrations routinely measured in drinking water in Texas.”
 
The EPA did not directly address the report, but a representative said the agency is working on a health assessment of chromium-6 that will be released for public comment in 2017.
 
According to Andrews and Walker, this means more delays and more time wasted.
 
“The inability to complete health assessments is hindering health protective regulations,” Andrews said.
 “When you find widespread evidence of contamination, do something about it. Don’t just study it to death,” Walker said, adding that the new report is not about “trying to raise the alarm about a single chemical. We’re kind of using chromium-6 as a poster child for systemic failures of drinking water regulation.”
