How Many Plastic Bottles Do You Use?

while cleaning up one day and putting water bottles, etc. in the trash. I got to wondering just how many plastic bottles do we go through in a weeks time and how many are we putting into the landfill. So I thought I would do a little experiment of my own.
Take one week and see just how many bottles, containers we throw away.

So for one week I put all our empty water bottles into a large garbage bag and I included any milk jugs, juice, coke bottles and containers we used. Well in a weeks time and this is a modest figure we had about 50 containers.

What does this look like in a years time in our landfill just from our house. Well let's do the math.
one week X 50 containers = 50
One month X 50 = 200
12 months X 200 = 2,400

now this may not seem like much to some, but you do that for your city alone and see what you come up with. I live in a town of about 100 homes. (yes, very small town) and on an average we'll do just 30 bottles... some may use more, some less.. so 30 seems pretty good.

100 homes in a week = 3,000
100 homes in a month = 12,000
100 homes in one year = 144,000

Can you imagine that many bottles in your landfill each year just from one small town?!! Now take that to bigger cities where there are many offices, public buildings, people carrying around water bottles all the time, pop bottles, homes using milk jugs, juice bottles, ketchup bottles, and so many other containers.. and just think what all we put into our landfill each DAY!!

We all often wonder how can I be affecting the environment... I don't dump toxic waste, chemicals and such. But in reality we do! We put more into our landfill than we think. Some of these things takes years to break down. and once we throw them away we never think about it again. Out of site, out of mind so to speak.

What can we do, well recycle for one... If you live in a place that does that. I know many of us don't and that can be a problem. But we can filter our own tap water and use reusable water bottles for one. Change the cleaning products you use to more concentrated products so you use less bottles.. and use products that if anything is left in them, it will break down and not harm our soil and water.

Will anything I post her today change the world.... well just one house may not, but many, many homes can make a difference if we all work together. Think about your home and what you use..what little things can you change. And it time to come, we'll begin to see changes in places we never thougth we would.

Just my thoughts for the day.

Importance of Vitamin C

Help Your Body Fight the Good Fight

Vitamin C helps your immune system and is your body's most powerful weapon in its daily battle against smog, smoke, poor diet, and other environmental assaults.

Vitamin C is water-soluble and antioxidant vitamin and cannot be stored in the body.
It is excreted from the body regularly, so you have to supply it regularly to the body. It is used for proper functioning of human body. It is also known as ascorbic acid. Ascorbic acid is an antioxidant, which helps in protecting the body against pollutants.

Vitamin C enhances immune function by supporting the body's natural antioxidant defenses and helps maintain cell integrity, as well as the health of your
Eyes
Teeth
Gums

And the structure of
Bone,
Muscles,
And blood vessels.

The main function of vitamin C is that it helps in the synthesis of collagen. Collagen is an essential protein that keeps your skin firm and toned. When collagen is not produced properly, your skin can begin to sag and will lose its vitality. Collagen is also an important component of ligaments, blood vessels, bone and tendons and your skin. It is found throughout the body, present in cartilage and connective tissues and is used to separate skeletal and smooth muscle cells.

If you are a smoker, be sure that you consume vitamin C every day.
The turn over rate of vitamin C is higher in those who smoke than the others.
In general the required amount of this vitamin for the men is 90 mg per day and 75 mg for the women.

DEFICIENCY SYMPTOMS: May lead to
soft & bleeding gums,
swollen or painful joints,
slow-healing wounds & fractures,
bruising,
nosebleeds,
tooth decay,
loss of appetite,
muscular weakness,
skin hemorrhages,
capillary weakness,
anemia,
impaired digestion.

Are You Living In A Toxic Home?

The most common poison exposures for children were ingestion of household products, such as cleaning substances. Chlorine is the number 1 cause of child poisonings in the US.

150 chemicals in the home are associated with allergies, birth defects, cancer, and physiological disorders. 90% of toxic hazards are caused by inhalation of vapors and absorption of hazardous particles.

The dramatic increase in rates of asthma in women in the past 10 years are believed to be due to women's longer exposure times to household chemicals. Women often work closely with potentially toxic chemicals, and primarily research suggests that their physiology is more conducive to absorbing and carrying these chemicals. Research estimates the health care cost of the U.S. women's environmentally associated disease is $12.2 billion annually.

According to a 15-year study presented at the Toronto Indoor Air Conference, women who work at home have a 54% higher death rate from cancer than those who work away from home. The study concluded that this was a direct result of the increased exposure to toxic chemicals, many of which are found in common household products.

So, what are some of those common household products?
Carpet Cleaners
Chlorine
Degreasers
Drain Cleaners
Glass Cleaners
Mold & Mildew Removers
Tub & Tile Cleaners
Many of which can cause cancer and liver damage. Take Chlorine, The Chemical most frequently involved in household poisonings and a potent pollutant. May cause reproductive, endocrine and immune system disorders. And your common Glass Cleaners may contain ammonia. Fumes from ammonia can irritate skin, eyes, and respiratory system.

Five Secret Reasons You May Need More Vitamin C

(NaturalNews) Back in the late l950s and l960s, Nobel prize winner Linus Pauling turned his attention to studying and documenting how vitamin C could improve health status and help the human body resist and heal from disease. His reward? By the time of his death in l994, he had been branded a "quack" by a large part of the medical community.

Now, almost 25 years after his passing, not only is his research being taken more seriously but other scientists are documenting how vitamin C can be the key to preventing and treating a host of health problems.

In fact, most everyone knows vitamin C is now lauded for helping to reduce symptoms of a cold if taken in sufficient quantity when sniffles first appear. But what you may not know is that researchers have found evidence strongly suggesting vitamin C can be used to head off some serious diseases and disorders -- and may even help you lose weight!

In fact, some of these uses for the vitamin are just plain amazing. Yet you'll seldom find vitamin C "prescribed" and, instead, are more likely to get drugs to treat maladies after they develop. And the odds are, your family doctor may be clueless about these ways vitamin C can help you.

Here's the latest on the relatively secret but very real ways vitamin C can improve your health:

1. Burn more fat and keep pounds away.
Researchers in the Department of Nutrition at Arizona State University found that research subjects who had low blood concentrations of C burned a whopping 25 percent less fat than those who had plenty of the vitamin in their body. The scientists think this may be because vitamin C is a co-factor for the biosynthesis of carnitine, a molecule your body needs to oxidize fatty acids. They concluded inadequate vitamin C could explain why some people have such a hard time losing and keeping off excess pounds.

2. Stop wheezing!
British scientists at the Department of Public Health and Primary Care at the Institute of Public Health in Cambridge studied 515 adults with asthma and 515 matched controls. They found that adults with symptomatic asthma had the lowest intake of fruit, especially citrus fruit, and low plasma vitamin C levels. These findings, the scientists stated in their research paper, suggest diet may be a potentially modifiable risk factor for the development of asthma.

3. More reasons to smile.
In the l700s, sailors found that eating limes during low sea voyages kept their gums healthy. No doubt the vitamin C in the fruit was responsible. Research published in the Journal of Periodontology showed that people with too little vitamin C have higher rates of periodontal disease. Also, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) report inadequate C is associated with weakened tooth enamel as well as the painful inflammation of gums known as gingivitis.

4. Guard your looks.
The NIH also lists rough, dry and scaly skin as signs of too little C. So is dry hair and even split ends. What's more, research published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition showed that people who ate a lot of vitamin C-rich foods had fewer wrinkles than those with inadequate amounts of the vitamin.

5. Protect your heart.
While we all are bombarded with ads about statins and other drugs that purport to reduce the risk of heart disease, you seldom hear about the mounting evidence a natural therapy -- vitamin C -- may protect your cardiovascular system. A case in point: Finnish researchers published a study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition suggesting higher doses of supplemental vitamin C cause the incidence of major coronary heart disease events like heart attacks to plummet.

So how much vitamin C do you need? Most experts agree that you can take large amounts. Vitamin C is not stored in the body so toxicity is very rare.
