Nitrates in our Water At Dangerous Levelsđź’¦

As you know I am an advocate of  humans drinking the purest water that is available to us in all walks of life. We can of course with the right equipment. We can blame our illnesses on many things, like we do,  such as Roundup, nitrates, fluoride, Stress and just breathing but I don’t believe we can nail just one of these poisons that causes cancer or any other illness. I think its all of them because you will find them in our drinking water.

So it does not matter how healthy you eat , if your drinking water is contaminated with this stuff then you are wasting your time and money.

This is an interesting story about nitrates in our water that was published on the Fox News.

Millions of tons of nitrate from industrial farming find their way into America’s drinking water each year, causing thousands of cases of cancer and other health problems

In a new report, researchers from the Environmental Working Group (EWG) quantify the risk. They say nitrate is responsible for nearly 12,600 cases of cancer a year.

(That is true as I lived many years in a cane growing area in Australia so I saw for myself the amount of bags and bags of fertilizer  put into the soil and spraying of crops over those years. In fact I always used to say that it was not soil the sugar was growing in, it was just fertilizer. Consequently I noted also over the years how many children were born with deformities, health problems and terminal illnesses in their latter years. )

“Industrialized farming relies heavily on nitrate fertilizers that can run off into the water table used by drinking water utilities,” said Sydney Evans, a science analyst at EWG.

The report said 80% of the nitrate-related cancers were colorectal, with ovarian, thyroid, kidney and bladder cancer accounting for the rest. Treatment costs up to $1.5 billion a year, according to the report.

Nitrate is hard and costly to filter out of water.  Some towns and cities, however, do remove it and pass along the cost to residents.

Private wells can also have high nitrate levels. People who rely on well water have to spend thousands of dollars to add reverse osmosis systems if they want to remove nitrate.

(Now on saying this If you have a Kangen Water machine you understand it is primarily a water Ionizer. It also filters out chlorine, fluoride, lead and most other common type contaminants. To filter out the likes of nitrates etc,  you need a pre filter for the machine. It is not expensive but recommended if you find you have a high count of nitrates in your water or any of the following poisons in your water. If you have not got a Kangen Water machine then for the health of your family I suggest you get one. )

 

 

ULTRA E PRE FILTER SET

The Ultra-E Submicron Depth Filtration Series is manufactured using a proprietary, patented, electro-absorptive media technology, and is capable of removing submicron pathogens and inorganic contaminants through electro-adhesion and ion exchange.

This technology makes it possible for a nonwoven media to product filtration efficiency comparable to ultramembrane filtration but at very low pressure drop, with high flow rates and high loading capacity working equally well in fresh, brackish or salt waters.

The media in the Ultra-E filter is NSF 61-approved.

Filter will pass up to 1500 gallons of water

Comes with Filter and Housing

 

The ULTRA-E filter reduces, or removes the following pathogens:
>99.99% of viruses (pollo, rotavirus, norovirus, etc.)**
>99.99% of bacteria ( e coli, legionella, pseudomonas, etc.)**
>99.95% of cysts (giardia, cryptosporidium, etc.)**
** Tested by a certified laboratory in the U.S. (testing was done at 6.5pH)

The Ultra-E filter removes or reduces the following heavy metals:
>95% Lead **
>90% Ferrous Iron **
>95% Arsenic V **
>95% Cadmium **
>85% Chromium **
>75% Selenium **

Saving Tip For Today – 08/06/2013

content_Make_Your_Own_Laundry_Detergent

Not Just For DishesUse about a teaspoon of liquid dish soap in your top-loading washing machine to clean your clothes. Its cheaper with fewer chemicals.

Make your ownI am A Google fan big time – go to Google to get the recipes for all detergent. The most common ingredients are usually Borax and Fels-naptha soap. A batch will cost you pennies in the dollar and worth the effort.

Pot scrubbersNow I am sure most of you reading this will probably think “I don’t think so”. But if you are in a situation that you are struggling financially and every dollar counts, (watching Varney on Fox tells me that there are hundreds of thousands in this position) this is a great idea. Dont go buying the steel wool pads or any pot scrubbers just save the plastic mesh bags you get with your fruit and veg’s. Remove the labels and staples and tie in a knot, does a great job.

5 ways hackers attack you (and how to counter them)

tumblr_mbw0rjljJJ1rzdozgo1_400

I saw this article on Fox News this weekend and thought it very interesting and rather scary actually. The thing that amazed me most was that for $3,000 you are able to buy a fully operational kit to start your hacking career. unbelievable, well not really I suppose, nothing should surprise us these days.

1. Phishing scams
Received an email from the Queen of Nigeria or some official sounding lawyer offering you a million dollars to be transferred into your account once you send your details? I don’t think so. You are probably thinking who would fall for that. Well believe it thousands a year get sucked in.

2. Trojan horse
One of the most popular ways to deliver a Trojan is a variation of the phishing email scams.

An example of this(and I get one at least twice a week) is an email from a well-known shipping company saying you have a delivery (mine always seem to be DHL at the moment). Just click on the URL address and they have slipped their slimy little hands into your computer.
An alarm bell should go off if the company does not address the content of the email with your name. For example if they use Dear customer, or Dear resident. “DO NOT OPEN”. I often get one from the bank saying my ATM card is blocked. I rang the company the first time it happen just to make sure then forwarded it to their fraud department.
Similar scams appear on Facebook and Twitter. You think you’re going to watch a funny video your friend posted. Instead, a pop-up tells you to update your video player. The “update” file it provides is really a Trojan.

3. Drive-by downloads
Hackers set up websites with a virus attached. It can be found on popular search engines and look very genuine.
Hackers can also sneak on to anyones website after finding some security weakness on your site and embed their virus in your website. This then requires a very good security to detect this. You may need to contact the security software company for them to run through your site. Often you can be alerted by a person whose own website security has picked it up.
You should also be using the latest version of your programs. Anyone using Internet Explorer 6, 7 or 8 needs to update or switch browsers immediately.
All my computers are ‘Apple’ and although I do not have the same problems as a PC owner we apple owners are not impenetrable so we need to be careful.

4. Bypassing passwords
Hackers don’t waste time trying to guess your password these days.
They might get your password from a data breach at a company or website you use. That happens often as you hear on the news.
You need to change your password every now and then and also the security questions.
Give an answer to the security question that has nothing to do with the questions.
That would be confusing for them.

5. Using open Wi-fi
Just don’t do it.
Hackers or neighbors can hack your computer from outside your building or at Starbucks or wherever you are sitting innocently working on your computer.
I think most people know this now but just in case check your security system to make sure.

This is a very good article and worth reading in full

Poem Friday – 09/21/2012 – It’s Your Future They Are Talking About!

It’s Your Future They Are Talking About!
Author: Lesley Voth

We are right now in the silly season,
Listen, observe, and vote for the right reason.

I am aiming this poem at the young, who can vote,
I am not trying to sway one way or promote.

Think outside of the box; make choices from the head,
Be sure; be comfortable, for the next 4 years, to lie in that bed.

Politicians are traveling all over the place,
Expounding their theories trying to win the Presidential race.

Would you have a lawyer, government employee, or celebrity run your life?
Or would you have a businessman, guide, your children, yourself, and your wife?

Listen to those who live the economy, love America, and add no baloney,
Listen to Varney, Fox News, in the morning, enjoy, he and his guests are no phony.

But it’s your choice as to whom you believe, and where you get your information,
Get over it; ignore the useless slights and digs by each politician’s accusation.

It appears to be normal, but not intelligent, not productive,
It’s media hype, it’s vindictive, it’s nasty, and destructive.

What are the freedoms that they offer you?
Will you be so regulated and taxed, more than you ever knew?

Does he surround himself with a competent crew?
Are his promises shallow or is he of substance, do you believe him to be true?

If you don’t vote then you should never complain,
because others will make your choices, again and again.

You will surely lose the freedoms you are now enjoying,
Your countries entrepreneurial spirit they will be destroying.

You might say… you are an Australian why do you care?
Well, when I am in the America that I love, My Harley and I, your roads we share.

And, because I am old enough to remember America, its pride, and its glory,
its wealth, its strength, its confidence, what a great story.

Nothing is free in this life you will find.
It’s the choice to work, be rewarded, be passionate, play and unwind.

Go vote, be heard, be sure, and don’t doubt,
It’s your future they are talking about.
