Another Advocate of The Enagic Water Machine💦

As you well know I am so sold on this machine and try to convince you many times that you need one. I came across this video which I thought was very impressive and thought you may be interested. Enjoy

 

“Kangen Water Scam – they said”… But Elite Scientists/Engineers Found The Real Truth.

Inventor and maker of medical devices ordered his team of elite engineers to find the truth if this Kangen Water Machine is really worth the certifications and the amount of money paid for it. They were surprised by what they found and did the unbelievable thing. For more information about this Kangen Water machine go to: http://LifeChanging-water.com

The speaker is Ron Hicks, the CEO of HerdX, Inc., an agri-tech company based in the Texas Hill Country, on a mission to clean up the world’s food supply by reducing the need for antibiotics.

Ron has over 25 years of disruptive product development and senior management experience. In his earlier career, Mr. Hicks led his team to develop several highly successful products that revolutionized the medical device industry in the US and throughout the world. His private portfolio of patented products has won numerous awards in engineering, tooling, and design. He was distinguished with Business Week’s top industrial design award which recognized him along with other companies throughout the world, including BMW, Sony, and Logitech.

Did You Know – 02/04/2019

 

1.  Corn, beans, and squash are called the “three sisters.”

The Native Americans planted corn, beans and squash together so that they would benefit each other. 

  • The corn provides a structure for the beans to climb.
  • The beans provide the nitrogen to the soil that other plants can utilize
  • The squash spreads along the ground preventing weeds
  • The prickly squash leaves also keep away raccoons, which don’t like to step on them.

2.  Qatar is the only country that begins with a Band Iraq is the only country that ends with a q.

 

3. The letter Q, W and X was illegal in Turkey for 85 years

Romanisation, it was argued, would help standardise Turkish spelling, improve literacy, and allow for cheaper and more convenient printing (the Arabic script required more than 400 pieces of type).

4. The biggest dam built by beavers is twice as long as the Hoover Dam. Speaking of Hoover Dam there is enough concrete in the Hoover Dam to build a road across the US from Coast to Coast.

 

5. In 2007 210,000 Americans were injured b lawnmowers. The lawn mower is the most dangerous item in the garden and the second is the flower-pot. Who knew. Oh on the subject as I know it’s a piece of useless information but Edwin Beard Budding who invented the lawn  mower tested his invention at night so no one would think he was mad.  Budding’s mower was designed primarily to cut the grass on sports grounds and extensive gardens, as a superior alternative to the scythe, and was granted a British patent on August 31, 1830.

Now using a petrol driven Lawn mower for one hour produces as much air pollution  as a 100 mile car trip. Source

Some Really Handy Products


I saw these ads on Facebook a couple of days ago and thought they were a fantastic idea.
The first one is an Electronic Mosquito Killer/Bug Zapper, USB Powered Silent Non-toxic UV LED Mosquito Lamp with Built in Fan Mosquito Catcher Trap for Baby Good Sleep. (Their words). For me I think its a brilliant idea. I have not seen one before and maybe they have been around a while but for me its a first time. Its product name is FANXIAOKJ. It is advertised for US$18.99 . I think they are about AUD $30. They can be bought on Amazon

 

The second one is the Travelon Bag Bungee– If you are like me you travel a lot and find that extra hand bag for travel on board, is a pain in the butt and this bungee is brilliant to be able to strap it on the top of your carry on.
This also is on Amazon for the price of US$10.95 probably about AUD$18.

Kangen Water Machine in the Kitchen – Its A Must💦

 

Almost 70 percent of non-organic fruit and vegetable  samples tested positive for at least one pesticide. (In many cases, the numbers were much higher.) And get this: A single strawberry sample harbored 22 different pesticide and pesticide breakdown residues.

While spinach nutrition is loaded with calcium and vitamins, there’s one reason to always try to choose organic. Researchers found DDT, a neurotoxic insecticide banned in the U.S., in an alarming number of samples. (A whopping 40 percent of nonorganic spinach samples, to be exact.)

It is quite amazing that a lot of the pesticides found on fruit and vegetables in America are banned in other countries. The disturbing bit is that a lot of the pesticide regulations are outdated and do not violate the US laws.

Quote Dr Axe

So where possible and financially viable buy organic or biodynamic (which is the very best). Better still grow your own vegetables and fruit if that is at all possible.

Also where possible purchase the Kangen Water machine💦 – really, it has a great acid vegetable  washing cycle that literally washes away the pesticides. You are able to see the change in the water color and allows the fruit and vegetables to last longer.

To find out more  about the Kangen Water machine 💦 go to my website http://lesleyvoth.kangendemo.com if you are in Australia, or Davids website http://lifechanging-water.com USA or worldwide

Another thing to consider is that a lot of fruit and vegetables sold in the United States are GMOs, so choose organic to avoid GMO versions of these crops.

Happy eating💦

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. 

 

 

5. Apparently according to research from the University of Minnesota’s Carlson school of management in the US found that those who performed tasks in a messy environment were 28% more creative than those who did so in a tidy room

These Strange Myths That Turned Out to Be True

1.Bohemian Grove is a real place.

This is the place where the world’s elite have gone on vacation since the late 19th century. Politicians, musicians, artists, and extremely wealthy individuals gather in Bohemian Grove to enjoy the best kinds of entertainment and also to carry out eerie mystical/religious rites. In the early 2000s, secretly filmed camera footage proved what the “Bohemian Club” refused to confirm: its mysterious meeting place is real, sparking new interest in the legends that have grown up around it.

2. Ernest Hemingway was convinced that the FBI was following him, but his friends and loved ones believed he was simply paranoid. Decades later, the FBI declassified some of its archives which show that the famous writer really was being tracked. This was the result of his connections with Cuba. Many people have argued that this situation led to Hemingway’s suicide.


3. Diamonds are not, in fact, that rare. This is essentially just an ordinary rock, and extracting it has become much less arduous over the past 150 years. However, over a long period of time, the De Beers company has controlled supplies of diamonds and has therefore been able to artificially raise the prices for them. They have been helped in this task by advertising campaigns depicting diamonds as extremely expensive precious stones that should always cost a large amount of money in order to be considered authentic.
Another ‘myth’ that’s true; coloured diamonds are worth more than white diamonds. This is the greatest fraud ever perpetrated as the colour is just impurities within the stone.

4. As long as it’s within a 3-mile radius of the British shore. All whales, dolphins, sturgeons, and porpoises within that radius belong to the Queen.

5. Kinder Surprise eggs, an Italian brand of egg-shaped chocolate candies containing a toy “surprise” inside, have been banned in the States since long before they were first manufactured in the early ’70s. That’s because the US has had a ban on candies with embedded toys since 1938
