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.

Day 22 – 22 Pushups – 22 Days – Awareness of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)

DONE! Day 22 – My work is done. Hopefully this small effort has made anyone who has been watching any one of the last 22 days, aware of the traumas that our veterans suffer while away and on their return home. So let us all be compassionate and helpful in anyway we can. Donation would be good at ‘Getheadstrong.org
Mind you I must add this was the second take, I actually did 44 pushups as my camera man cut my head out of the picture in the first video. I was breathing a little heavy in the second take.

The reason for 22 days and 22 pushups is the recognition and awareness of proven statistical evidence that there are at least 22 veterans commit suicide each day in the United States Of America and a growing number in Australia. There has been 274 suicides in Australia since 1999.

For most of us, we can not comprehend the trauma that they experience and how tolerant and supportive we must be for those who fight for our freedoms. It is not only tragic for our vets it is certainly heartbreaking for the families of these young men and women.
Today I nominate Mitch King 
to take the challenge.

No pressure . If you can great, if not that’s ok too.

But once you accept, you start tomorrow. The rules are simple:
* Once you are nominated your 22 days starts the following day.
* Every day you record yourself doing 22 push ups, try your best to reach 22. If that means doing assisted push ups (from your knees) or you have to stop and take a break, that is fine but try to get them all done in one video.
* Every day the push-ups must be in a different location.
* Every day you just nominate a different person.
* And finally have fun with this!
This a great way to have fun and let these courageous Men and Women who put their life on the line and those suffering from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) know that someone is thinking about them.

Day 21 – 22 Pushups – 22 Days – Awareness of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)

One more day to go. Taken at our closest park as there is rain around so could not go far. My intention was to go to the local Fair at Rosenberg where my friends have entered into the “cook Off”  but it looked like I was going to get rained upon. So with glass in hand of Prosecco it seems watching football is on the menu now for the afternoon.
