Deodorant Warning: Bad for Kidneys October 29, 2012

The high levels of alumiunum in our deodorant is highly toxic for people with kidney problems. Some doctors say It is nothing to worry about, but if that is the label, its there for a reason. They have to put it, because of how much damage is done to the kidneys.

There are so many people born with kidney problems, that this is one thing that they would not notice is continuing to hamr their kidneys. Not just to think of all the healthy kidneys being affected!! Spread the word!! =]

I have been searching for aluminum free deodorant, hope it still works good!!

I have included a link for some deodorants.and one on an article. The world should know about these warnings!!  =]

The Benefits of Carrots and Carrot Juice August 16, 2012

 

Carrots and Carrot juice are just streaming with healthy nutrients, and in a normal quick diet, we are lacking many of them. Carrots contain a great amount of Vitamin A (same as any orange and yellow fruit or veggie) Which can help with your eyes and brain. We need Vitamin A in our bodies just to function, and very few of us will even touch carrot juice. Try mixing your carrot juice with orange juice(both fresh squeezed) It is a delicious and healthy blend I just can’t stay away from!!!

 

Waterfalls Close to Home September 1, 2011

Im sure many Southern Californians do not know these waterfalls exist, yet they are huge! Once you climb up enough to get to the waterfall, you can feel the air get lighter and cooler. Here in Cali it has been getting over a hundred degrees everyday, so going to the waterfall was a great idea. It is 70 feet tall, and it is one of the most amazing things I have ever seen. If you live any where by a mountain there is a chance for a waterfall. The place we went to is called Bonita Falls, but is in the town of Lytle Creek. It is less than a mile off the road so it is fairly easy. It cost me $5 to park, and they gave me a map of the waterfalls at the ranger station. Its too hard to explain in anything but pictures!!

 

 

 

 

 

Three Ways to be Greener August 16, 2011

I came across this app/site the other day that tracks your mileage and carbon footprint of your weekly commute. Its simple and eco friendly to use.

There are many plastic bags being thrown in landfills everyday. The best idea is for us to reuse the bags we have, and these ecobags are durable and lightweight. Once you get enough bags, you can prevent 15 bags or more from being sent to a landfill.
This is my goal to buy some after this next paycheck.

These reusable water bottles make life easy. They filter the water inside the bottle, and when you drink it, it is refreshing and smart. I bring one to work every day because I use water bottles anyway. I save at least 30 plastic bottles a month by switching to a reusable bottle in general. I even try to reuse the plastic ones when necessary. If everyone switched to resuable bottles, they would stop throwing away plastic ones and the earth would appreciate it.
