Do you have heavy metals in your water? FACT: Most heavy metals in our water supply cannot be detected by sight, smell or taste. The only way to detect the presence of heavy metals is through a water test. You may expect the today’s town water supply is safe but here is a quote form NZ Ministry of Heaths web site: “About 1.1 million New Zealanders were supplied with drinking-water during 2003 that failed to comply with the current DWS2000 Standards” There are serious health risks from drinking water with excessive levels of heavy metals with many of them affecting the brain. See the links below for more information on this. Can heavy metals be removed from the supply? We can remove most heavy metals from your drink water very easily with reliable technology. Our standard underbench filter removes a huge range of metals commonly found in your water. BUT before we any recommend any solutions, we recommend Water Testing. If you are unsure and particularly if you are on bore water, we recommend water testing first. You don’t know what’s there until you test. In numerous water tests we have found excessive heavy metal levels that would affect your health.

Our standard under bench filter provides great protection from the contaminants found in public water supply systems with the combination of KDF and Carbon treatments. Unlike carbon filters, the KDF technology increases the range and effectiveness of treatment, while creating an environment which will not support bacterial growth. KDF® the name for high purity copper and zinc granules. In solution, these two metals interact to create a slight electrical charge. The resulting ionization and oxidation/reduction processes modify the structure of heavy metals and other contaminants. This media is a major advancement in water treatment technology that works on the electro-chemical and spontaneous-oxidation-reduction (redox) principles. Chlorine is instantaneously and almost inexhaustibly oxidized. Iron and hydrogen sulfide are oxidized into insoluble matter and attach to the surface of the media. Heavy metals such as lead, mercury, cadmium, and aluminum are removed from the water by the electrochemical process. Arsenic and radon are reduced. Metals are attracted to the surface of the media, much like a magnet. The media also inhibits bacteria growth throughout the entire unit and in fact, has been shown to reduce it up to 90%!

When it comes to your health, amalgam can do far more harm than good.... Mercury exposure Dental amalgam is approximately 50% mercury, a known neurotoxin and reproductive toxin. Amalgam releases mercury vapors throughout its lifecycle, especially when the dentist places the amalgam in your tooth you chew food or gum you brush your teeth you grind your teeth As a result, people with amalgam fillings have higher levels of mercury in their bodies than people without amalgam fillings. Vulnerable populations Mercury exposure from dental amalgam is not safe for anyone. But it is particularly risky for.... Children: Children’s developing brains and neurological systems are particularly susceptible to the neurotoxic effects of amalgam’s mercury vapor. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) admits that there is no evidence that amalgam is safe for children: “Very limited to no clinical information is available regarding long-term health outcomes in pregnant women and their developing fetuses, and children under the age of six, including infants who are breastfed.” Many countries – including the entire European Union – are banning amalgam use in children. Women of childbearing age: Mercury from a mother’s amalgams can cross the placenta and accumulate in her unborn child. As mentioned above, the FDA admits that there is no evidence that amalgam is safe for developing fetuses. Many countries – including the entire European Union, Canada, Australia, and Mauritius – are banning or recommending against amalgam use in pregnant women.

Toxic chemicals The toxic chemicals are the substance that can be poisonous or cause the health effects , They don’t break down easily in the environment , they can build up the tissues of small organisms , they can move up through the food chain . The chemicals can be toxic because they can harm us when they enter or contact the body , they can threaten the human health , The motor vehicle emissions of nitrogen and sulphur oxides cause the acid rain which poisons the fish and other aquatic organisms in the rivers and lakes . carbon dioxide gas causes the greenhouse effect and the climate change , Chlorofluorocarbons ( CFCs ) cause the destruction of ozone in the stratosphere and they create the possibility of serious environmental damage from ultraviolet radiation . The oil drilling and transport , mining and maritime operations all result in the accidental introduction of toxic materials into the marine environment , and the leakage from the storage tanks and the pipelines , and the seepage from the waste dumps . The toxic materials or substances can poison people and other life, They can cause illness and even death if swallowed or absorbed through the skin , where the pesticides , the weed killers , and many household cleaners are toxic , they occurs as a result of a variety of human activities . The industries and the sewage treatment plants discharge the wastes which contain the toxic substances directly into the waterways , These direct pipeline discharges are called the point sources .

Mateusz Gawron - The Shadow drums playthrough from Plethora's album Age of Changes At first I wanted to write more about the Triptych of A Wizard of Earthsea. The construction of the Triptych about Ged is... a sinusoid. The Sparrowhawk opening theme is also in the middle of The Shadow and at the end of the Ged song. The Sparrowhawk is at 200 bpm, The Shadow at 180 bpm, and Ged - again at 200 bpm. In addition, The Shadow has two quiet guitar motives - at the begining there is a guitar solo called Roke and at the end - guitar theme called Gebbeth. The Shadow drum part was a challenge for me - guitar riffs during the stanza require a boost by bass drum, but I did not want to end up with such an obvious solution. That's why I came up with the idea of joining strikes on the floor tom. This makes the whole sound more powerful. When it comes to the chorus of the song - I was trying to make it light and I wanted to emphasize the rhythm of the melodic guitar. The solo underlay has a rocky, growing character. In the third verse, I decided to use crash to my cymbals and stop them exactly with the guitar riffs rhytm. It gives interesting sound. I hope you like these solutions and thanks to them the whole song has become more interesting.

What is a chemical? Everything in the physical world around us is made of chemicals. The earth we walk on, the air we breathe, the food we eat, the cars we drive, and the houses we live in are all made of various chemicals. Living organisms such as plants, animals, and humans are also made of chemicals. Some of the chemicals we contact in our daily lives are man-made. These man-made chemicals include some drugs, cosmetics, workplace products, household cleaning agents, and so on. Many more chemicals which we are exposed to each day occur naturally and are found in our food, in the air, and in water. There are far more natural chemicals in our environment than man-made ones. Both man-made and natural chemicals can have poisonous effects. What makes chemicals poisonous? There are several factors which can influence the degree of poisoning caused by a chemical. These factors are as follows: Route of entry into the body Amount or dose entering the body Toxicity of the chemical Removal from the body Biological variation What are the routes of entry into the body? No chemical can cause poisonous effects without first coming into contact with the body. Inhaling (breathing in) contaminated air is the most common way that workplace products enter the body. Some chemicals, when in contact with the skin, can seep through the skin. Less commonly, workplace chemicals may be swallowed, for example from contaminated food or cigarettes. The eyes may also be a route of entry. Usually, however, only very small quantities of chemicals in the workplace enter the body through the mouth or the eyes.

Mateusz Gawron - Ged drums playthrough from Plethora's album Age of Changes Inventing the drums for the Ged song was quite a long process. Drum parts are like the song itself - aggressive, but also rich and colorful. The drum from the chorus does not seem at first glance difficult, but it is. Idea of double bass rhytmic solution I took from my drum lesson “Double Bass Drumming Exercises”. Drums in guitar solo are very unusual, because it contains irregularity and is mainly based only on the snare, toms and double bass. This chaotic pounding is supposed to be a reflection of the fight that Ged had with his alter ego.

It's in water bottles, sippy cups, and the seams and linings of cans containing food: Bisphenol A (BPA) is the chemical's name, and manufacturers use it to harden plastic. Unfortunately, it may pose a health hazard. Initially, researchers in the U.S. and abroad linked exposure to high levels of BPA in infancy to increased risk of obesity and early-onset puberty. Then, last September, the Journal of the American Medical Association published a study involving 1,455 American adults, which linked high urinary levels of BPA to heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and liver complications. Additionally, previous studies had shown that BPA can blunt the effectiveness of chemotherapy drugs, says Sonya Lunder, a public health scientist with the nonprofit Environmental Working Group. An FDA subcommittee has recommended further research be done to answer questions about BPA's safety. Some states aren't waiting to take action: At least 12 are moving to ban the chemical from baby bottles. (A few bottlemakers, such as Nalgene, have already removed BPA from their products.) In the meantime, you can limit your exposure by not putting hot food or drinks in plastic containers (or placing those containers in the microwave): Heat causes the chemical to leach into food. Canned goods have a plastic lining that releases BPA when heated prior to sealing. Another way to limit BPA is to favor fresh and frozen items. See below to get more ideas for BPA-free substitutions.

The scariest part about the 2014 chemical spill in West Virginia was that, in the beginning, no one really knew anything about the chemical that poisoned their drinking water. Ten thousand gallons of a licorice-scented chemical called MCHM had leaked from a storage container into the Elk River, a tap water source for 300,000 people in Charleston. Schools closed, hospitals evacuated patients, and the local economy of the state’s most populated city came grinding to a halt. For weeks, citizens were unsure whether they had been exposed to unsafe levels of the chemical, and what exactly MCHM would do to their bodies if they consumed it. West Virginians did eventually get a clearer picture of MCHM. Tom Burke, who served as the Environmental Protection Agency’s chief science adviser under President Obama, thinks that’s partially because of an EPA program called the Integrated Risk Information System (IRIS), which assesses the health risks of thousands of chemicals across the country. “When there is a mystery like West Virginia, it’s those world-class scientists in the IRIS program that do the exposure assessment and risk analysis that lead to future decision-making about the chemical,” he told me. Congress is well aware of its value. “From the dusts of the World Trade Center and the faucets of Flint; to the toxic waters of Katrina and Harvey; [IRIS scientists] are there, working selflessly to protect our nation’s environment and public health,” Burke said in September before a House Science Committee hearing on the program. “Our health depends on them.” We may not be able to depend on them for much longer. On Monday, the Republican-controlled Senate released a spending bill that eliminates IRIS. The bill asserts that IRIS’s functions would be maintained, just transferred to the agency’s Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) program. But Burke and others say the TSCA program is not large or well-funded enough to handle all the different types of chemical risk assessments

Most chemicals can cause both acute and chronic toxicity depending on the conditions of exposure. The adverse acute and chronic health effects caused by the chemical can be quite different. It is not usually possible to predict what the chronic toxicity of a chemical might be by looking at its acute toxicity, or vice versa. Acute toxicity In most cases, much more is known about the acute toxicity of a chemical than its chronic toxicity. The understanding of acute toxicity comes from studies with animals exposed to relatively high doses of the chemical, from tests that use animal, human or other cells, or from comparison of the effects of very similar chemicals. Accidental exposure, spills and emergencies add to our knowledge of acute toxicity in humans. The health effects may be temporary, such as skin irritation, dizziness or nausea, or they may be permanent: blindness, scars from acid burns, mental impairment and so on. Acute toxicity is often seen within minutes or hours after a sudden, high exposure to a chemical. However, there are a few instances where a one-time high-level exposure causes delayed effects. For example, symptoms of exposures to certain pesticides may not appear for several days. Chronic toxicity Much of the knowledge we have about chronic toxicity comes from animal experiments. In addition, much has been learned from studying groups of people occupationally exposed to a chemical for many years. As a general rule, chronic toxicity appears many years after exposure first began. The health effects occur only because the exposure has taken place repeatedly over many years. Chronic toxicity is thought to occur in one of two main ways. These two ways can be explained by using sodium fluoride and n-hexane as examples. Sodium fluoride, at very low concentrations (such as in toothpaste or drinking water), causes no noticeable harmful health effects, even after years of exposure. At these low levels, the effects are considered beneficial for teeth.
