Plastics Are Ubiquitous Real Water Makes a Difference

by Jeanette Smith
Real Water bottles are made from recycled plastic and this is why: Single-use plastic bags and bottles have covered grounds and beaches, and now scientists have discovered them at the deepest point on Earth, the Mariana Trench. The Mariana Trench is 36,000 feet below the ocean’s surface where scientists have discovered a single-use plastic bag. Plastic does not decompose; it breaks up into smaller pieces and never disintegrates. Eighty-nine percent of the plastics used are for single-use. Some grocery stores will take them back and recycle them, so they do not end up in a landfill or at the bottom […]

According to Lance Gilman, the partner broker of the Tahoe-Reno Industrial Complex said that nanotechnology could help clean up the dirty water in Northern Nevada to make it safe for drinking. Gilman believes that the new technology for cleaning water could also be used to clean wastewater from households. It can even make salt water safe for drinking. Nanotechnology is an engineering that “deals with matter on the atomic, molecular, and supramolecular scale. Nanomembranes can neutralize bacteria and impurities in water.” Gilman believes the nanotechnology will benefit the water systems in Northern Nevada, especially his tenants in the industrial complex: […]

Sometimes that to-do list is easy and there is time leftover for friends, family, and fun. Other weeks, however, that to-do list requires a break from all distractions and there is no time to even talk to family. Therefore, balance is required to even out the pace of work and life. The more responsibilities, the harder it is to find that sense of balance. Nonetheless, it is not impossible. The three founders of the women’s denim brand, All Year Round, have been able to balance the demands of their personal lives while building their business. Here are their tips on […]

Three things to consider before drinking bottled water: Has the bottled water been properly filtered? Does the bottle’s plastic leach potentially toxic chemicals into the water? Is the water alkaline or acidic? Filtered Water Most municipalities claim their water is safe to drink. However, that is not always the case. The regulation of drinking water has a direct and immediate effect on the well-being of the citizens in the area. The bureau of Safe Drinking Water reviews the compliance data from 598 public water systems based on state and federal regulations. If the data from a water system exceeds that […]

Alkaline phosphatase is an enzyme, or protein found in the body. Enzymes help the chemical reactions take place in the body. They can break large molecules into smaller ones and join smaller molecules to create structures. There is alkaline phosphatase in the digestive system, the kidneys, intestines, the liver, bones, and placenta. If there are signs of a bone disorder or liver disease, a doctor will order an alkaline phosphatase (ALP) test to measure the amount in the blood. Sometimes it will be part of a broader range of tests called a routine hepatic level. This tests liver function. If […]

People who eat fast food are exposed are exposed to higher levels of phthalates, than people who eat home-cooked meals. Scientists studied 10,253 participants from a national survey. The survey questions included: What did you eat? Where did the food you ate come from? The survey covered a 24-hour period. Phthalate levels were measured from the participants’ urine. Phthalate levels were 40 percent higher in those who ate the most fast food, according to Ami Zota, the senior author and assistant professor of environmental and occupational health at George Washington University. Phthalates have been linked to serious health problems. People […]

When the body is in an alkaline state it is less likely to experience chronic illness. The foods and beverages consumed daily directly impact the alkaline balance in the body. The acid/alkaline balance is measured by the pH value. This explains if the body’s fluids and tissues are acidic or alkaline. On the pH scale, negative 4.5 is very acidic, and 9.5 is very alkaline. The body is considered healthy at a neutral pH of 7.0 or higher. If there is a slight fluctuation in the body’s pH, and it is more acidic than it should be, they body will […]
