We are exposed to countless pollutants on a daily basis in our food, air, water, clothing, and homes. And while many of them are known to be toxic, the consequences of low-level exposure are largely unknown.

EE101: The Chemistry and Biology of the Industrial Food System | Brenda Eskenazi and Tyrone Hayes | February 10, 2014 | Pollution | Scoop.it
According to the US Food and Drug Administration, "Persistent Organic Pollutants" (POPs) residues are present in virtually all categories of foods in the United States, including baked goods, fruit, vegetables, meat, poultry, and dairy products. In fact, it is not unusual to find five or more toxic chemicals in a single food item. What are the unseen and unforeseen effects of these chemicals in our food supply? How can consumers learn more about these issues without becoming overwhelmed with frightening data? How urgent is the problem and what can we do to address it?

Samantha Gutierrez's curator insight, March 7, 2014 11:30 AM

Top tips to increase your every intake of water are very simple here are some examples, drink warm water with lemon (so it can help your stomach flush out toxins) or water is fine, 30min before going to bed drink a glass of water. Eating friuts and vegetables have water in them so therefore not only when you drink water you also get some nuturitions in it.

Water Softener Reviews – Valuable Information for Every Customer

Before purchasing a water softener, most people use independent review websites. Unbiased opinions can help them make a useful choice and right decision. Clear water is vital for the health. But it is not reasonable to run to the shop and purchase the first available system. Before buying a device, it is recommended to investigate in detail what you need for health drinking. Otherwise, there is a risk of spending a lot of money on a useless thing which can even be harmful to the health. That is why water softener reviews are important for everyone who is looking for the right option. 

This website provides water softener ratings and full information about different types of softeners: magnetic, ion exchange, salt free and reverse osmosis. A salt-free system tends to be the most popular among customers. It works with the help of filters and doesn’t require potassium or salt. It is a perfect solution for those who stick on a low sodium diet. Although, some people point out that traditional items work better, especially if the water is very hard. Apart from salt-free devices, magnetic softeners have also a lot of positive feedback. They operate with the use of magnetic field which alters the water. However, the problem is that water will become hard again within 48 hours after passing through the magnetic field. In contrast to them, reverse osmosis system uses pressure to remove up to 98% of scale through a semi-permeable membrane. Though, it will also remove nutrients and minerals at the same time. 

The water softener comparison and average customer rating allow getting complete information about each device. It would be useful for everyone to get to know the list of top brands chosen by consumers. Today the most popular devices are Tapworks AD, Culligan, Kinetico 2020, The Pelican PSE1800, Soo-Soft digital water treatment system, and others. Every registered user can leave feedback and let other people know about his/her experience. 

Indeed, it’s a difficult issue to choose the right softener, as each of them has its advantages and disadvantages. Water softener reviews allow consumers to evaluate each option correctly and weigh all pros and cons.

Is the scare tactic about the global insufficiency of water akin to that of global food? If so the mega corporations who deal in these commodities can put quite a fear in the world's population. We all know what happens when people react out of fear.

She is the Water - A MUST read - Anishinaabekwe (Nibi) #IdleNoMore | Pollution | Scoop.it

The water is healing.  The water is purification.  The water is Anishinaabekwe.  The waters of the Great Lakes are deep and ancient.  Stories are waiting to be told by the women, elders, youth and various Anishinaabe communities surrounding the Great Lakes.  Decolonization and matriarchy pave a path for visibility and voice in our communities.  All of our communities need to support Anishinaabekwe, as Keepers of the Water.
