Plastic Water Bottles & Unsafe Water

According to the Container Recycling Institute, an estimated 8 in 10, or 22 billion single-serving plastic water bottles won't make it into the recycling bin this year, but instead will end up in a landfill.

What's more, bottled water isn't necessarily safer than tap water. Bottled-water companies aren't required to disinfect or test for parasites such as Cryptosporidium or Giardia, a requirement for city tap water.

Read Consumer Reports complete bottled water report.

Holiday Cleansing and Weight Loss

It's the time of the year for both. With all the junk food and holiday treats consumed, many people begin thinking about a cleanse before the season hits. Seems to make sense to lose a few pounds before clothes get snug. :-)

The Dieter's Cleanse is a great combination of cleansing and weight loss formulas. Cleansing is the best first step to any weight management program, but if I just want to do a cleanse I choose between these two: Clean Start and Chinese Tiao He Cleanse

These links are to The Herbs Place since they sell Nature's Sunshine Products at wholesale prices.

Hospitals Serving Organic Food

Hospitals are serving all-natural all-organic foods in their cafeterias to satisfy not only their mission to promote health but the appetites of visitors and workers who rave about the fresh fruit smoothies, wild salmon, and homemade pies with antioxidant-rich dried cherries.

Not only does the organic food taste great, but the hospitals' budgets are benefiting, because more people are buying the food. No longer does the cafeteria staff worry about which patient needs low-salt and which needs low-fat. Everybody gets the same healthy, lean, and tasty food. In just a year one hospital rid its menu of all trans fats and major additives. Read entire article

Why Should I Cleanse?

Millions of us suffer from disease, sickness and pain because we simply don't know this truth about our own health: our bodies are not properly eliminating poisons and environmental toxins. The colon's job is to hold waste before it is evacuated from the body and to reabsorb water from the waste.

Years of poor eating habits, low-fiber diets, sedentary living and other lifestyle choices can slow the digestive processes. If waste sits in the colon too long, toxins build up there and are eventually absorbed back into the body. A toxic colon eventually leads to a toxic liver, which pollutes the tissues and the bloodstream, making a person very sick.

Get more information on symptoms indicating a cleanse may be helpful and find a list of toxins that reside in the colon and reason to keep the colon clean by reading the article, Why Should I Cleanse.

Black Tea Soothes Away Stress

The BBC reports that scientists found evidence behind what many tea drinkers already know - a regular cuppa can help you recover more quickly from everyday life stresses. The study of black tea - instead of green or herbal varieties - found it helps cut levels of the stress hormone cortisol circulating in the blood. They found people who drank tea were able to de-stress more quickly than those who drank a tea substitute.
