1. Hookworm larvae are to be injected into coeliacs in bid to treat gluten intolerance

James Cook University Australia, doctors John Croese and Paul Giacomin hope to find a drug derived from the parasites to treat gluten intolerance.
The larvae are put under a bandage, they burrow into the patients’ skin to make their way into their intestines.Hookworms do not breed within the human body so there is no chance of the parasite multiplying to dangerous numbers.
Results: Some Participant in the trial ate pizza for the first time in 15 years.
The future of worm therapy is likely to involve the manufacture of synthetic versions of these worm proteins in the laboratory in the hope that eventually they could become a pill-based medication to treat a variety of inflammatory diseases, including coeliac disease.

Bottled water can pose health threats

The plastic in bottled water often contains chemicals BPA and phthalates, which are proven to be hazardous to human health.3

Bottled water is not proven to be any safer than tap water

The non-profit, non-partisan Environmental Working Group (EWG) says, “The government does not mandate that bottled water be any safer than tap water. In fact, the chemical pollution standards are nearly identical.” Historically, bottled waters have even been recalled for contamination with particulate matter, mold and bacteria.5

Further, as reported by ABC, environmental advocate Mae Wu has performed studies which show bottled is no safer or cleaner: There is actually more testing federally mandated on tap water than bottled. 100 compounds of tap water must be tested every day and the results posted online.6

Girl Talk

organic

I read this article in the ‘Australian Nature and Health‘ magazine, which incidentally is one of the best magazines of its genre.

The article was about Tampons. It made sense, and I have never thought of it before. I have never questioned the material that tampons are made of. The chemicals that are used in the product and how they are manufactured. Now I do.

It then led me to the question of what diseases could this cause. Could it be the cause of some of the cancers that seems to be on the increase in our young girls and older women in our reproductive areas like the ovaries, cervical  area, and Uterus even maybe breast cancer.

Anyway here is the article and I believe that after you have read this you maybe thinking ‘Organic’ in the future.

Change Your Tampon

“The average woman uses  12,000 tampons over a lifetime and it’s not just about what we put inside us that matters: It’s about where it’s coming from and where it ends up” warns Aimee Marks founder of TOM Organics.

“Conventional cotton is one of the world’s most heavily sprayed crops and these chemicals end up in the air, our waterways, our bodies and eventually landfill. Many tampons are made from rayon and plastic, the production of which involves labour intensive chemical processes and results in a product which takes a lot longer to break down than cotton. Organic tampons and pads are free from chemicals, bleaches and  also are biodegradable. She suggested to stop using plastic tampon applicators hundreds of thousands of them end up in our waterways every year and never flush sanitary products down the toilet.

This makes sense to me.

2. Kitty Litter As Cell Phone Saver

If your phone gets wet you can try drying it in a box of cat litter. Remove the battery and SIM card, then dry the phone off and slide it into a sock. Tie the sock closed and put it in a container filled with the litter. After three days, check to see if there’s any moisture left on the screen. If so, put it back for another couple of days.

3. Baby Wipes As Gadget Cleaners

Before you go out and purchase pricey electronics cleaners, keep in mind baby wipes work just as well.

4. Hydrogen Peroxide As Stain Remover

Unfortunately bleach has left hydrogen peroxide with somewhat of a bad rap. Commonly used as an anti-septic nowadays it makes for an awesome disinfectant and stain remover.

5. Cereal Bags As Ziplocs

Ziplock bags cost a fortune and the store-brand stuff is rarely worth its weight in flimsy plastic. Plastic cereal bags, however, are great liners that can be reused. You can use them to store baked goods or a sandwich, apply breadcrumb coatings to meat, fish and poultry, roll up cookie dough logs, contain ingredients to be crushed with a rolling-pin, or as a trash container in your car.

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.
