Higher estrogen is on the rise and in the news with young children reaching puberty at much earlier ages, frogs and fish becoming "intersex" and  losing their male traits, and other unusual phenomena occurring with women.

 

Marion Rosenberg has written a thought provoking article which is a wake up call to people about what you eat and what happens to the food before you consume it.

 

Best to eat as much organic as possible to avoid pesticide residue, chemicals, antibiotics, fungacides, and even pharmaceutical drugs which are thrown into your municipal water systems. Install water filtration systems. Be aware.

Acidic Foods Can Have An Alkalizing Effect

It’s very important to understand that eating an acidic food does not automatically mean it makes your body more acidic. With the same premise, eating an alkaline food does not mean it will have an alkalizing effect on your body.

What Diet Soda Does to Belly Fat ("try room-temp water to quench thirst, better if alkaline")

What Diet Soda Does to Belly Fat ("try room-temp water to quench thirst, better if alkaline") | The Basic Life | Scoop.it
More evidence that diet soda contributes to weight gain, not weight loss

A new study published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society found that people who drank diet soda gained almost triple the abdominal fat over nine years as those who didn’t drink diet soda. The study analyzed data from 749 people ages 65 and older who were asked, every couple of years, how many cans of soda they drank a day, and how many of those sodas were diet or regular.

Those answers ended up being extremely predictive of abdominal-fat gain, even after the researchers adjusted for factors like diabetes, smoking and levels of physical activity. People who didn’t drink diet soda gained about 0.8 in. around their waists over the study period, but people who drank diet soda daily gained 3.2 in. Those who fell in the middle — occasional drinkers of diet soda — gained about 1.8 in.

These results, which the study authors call “striking,” add to the growing body of evidence that no- and low-calorie sweeteners may come with health concerns. Though scientists are still puzzling through the mechanisms by which diet soda seems to have the unintended consequence of weight gain, they have some ideas. Sugar-free sodas contain substances that sweeten up soda at 200-600 times the sweetness of sugar.

Why not go back to drinking water? In a restaurant or canteen, just ask for it.

"Researchers in the new study found that belly-fat gain was most pronounced in people who were already overweight. “People who are already at cardiometabolic risk because they have higher BMIs are really in double or triple jeopardy,” Hazuda says. “When they think they’re doing something good by drinking artificially sweetened beverages, it’s actually totally counterproductive.”

Fragrance Stinks! 4 Reasons to Stop Using Scented Products

Fragrance Stinks! 4 Reasons to Stop Using Scented Products | The Basic Life | Scoop.it
I get it. We all like to smell nice. In fact there’s a multi-billion dollar industry dedicated to insuring that we do. We can smell like line-dried sheets, spring flowers, mountain streams if we so choose, but perhaps there’s a reason we don’t naturally smell like any of them. And perhaps we’re not meant to, at least not in the chemically-drenched way it’s being done today.

I stumbled unto information from Dr. Sebi, a herbalist who has been practicing since the 1990’s, who claimed to cure diseases by alkalizing the body with an alkaline diet consisting of only vegetables, fruits, nuts, alkaline grains, and legumes, which would also remove mucus from the body. Along with the diet he also used natural alkaline herbs to clean the body’s cells in the cellular, and intra-cellular level to remove disease from the body.
