Reducing Water Pollution

It’s inevitable that every system and process on Earth results in some sort of pollution. But thanks to an increase in education about water pollution, presently this is a growing concern. The definition of water pollution is a change in the quality of water, whether it be chemical, physical, or biological. Effects pollution can be harmful to those drinking or using it and particularly dangerous to humans.

Water pollution, ironically enough, mostly stems from human impact. Oil tankers and mines contribute greatly to water pollution. Other human sources include factories or sewage treatment plants.

How do can you tell if the water near you is polluted? Well, you can’t tell just by looking at it. The only sure way is to scientifically test a small sample. Many companies, like Filtercon for example, offer test kits to test your water at home for water pollution.

Here are some simple thing you can do in your life to prevent water from being polluted:

Non-Toxic Products
Rainwater can wash unsafe substances into nearby rivers, oceans, and other bodies of water. For this reason, try buying products that are not harmful to the environment. This includes BPA-free bottles, artificial air fresheners and disinfectants, chemical fertilizers, and flame retardants. You can find products that aren’t harmful to the environment in most local stores. If you use toxic products, simply dispose of them correctly (take them to hazardous waste sites) so they do not cause water pollution. Make sure that you aren’t dumping chemicals down the drain and check out your city’s local hazardous waste dropoff site.

Motor Oil and Cooking Oil
A good practice is not to allow your car to drip motor oil on the ground. Contact your local waste site and ask them when you can dispose of it properly to them. The same goes for cooking oil and paint, it’s a good idea not to put it down faucet. Many restaurants have a grease bin where they dispose of their cooking oil. If you can’t find a place to properly dispose of your cooking oil, ask a restaurant close by.

Yard Care
The best type of yard fertilizer for your yard is a non-toxic fertilizer, like compost. Toxic fertilizers turn into ocean and lake pollution when it rains. They can also be absorbed in the water supply, which is a result of poor drainage in the yard. It’s also good to not overwater your yard if you are using toxic fertilizer.

Dog Friendly
When walking your dog, clean up after him/her. It is courtesy, of course, but their stool sometimes can find their way to our water supply.

Your Toilet
Some people use their toilet as a garbage can. Please do not make this mistake. It is polluting to add items like dirty diapers, sanitary napkins, and tampon applicators to your toilet drainage. These items could end up polluting the ocean and can damage the water treatment effort.

Alkalized Water and Breathing Problems

You might have heard the word “alkalizer” before in reference to water but had no idea what it is. You probably also didn’t know of the benefits of drinking water from an alkalizer especially for people who suffer from asthma.

In short, an alkalizer is a machine that reduces acidity in water. You normally find an alkalizer attached to the kitchen faucet or wherever people mostly drink their water. There are some machines that fit snugly under the counter for easy installation. Those are normally much more affordable than the multi-level machines.

It is said to help people with respiratory issues like asthma and breathing problems. The belief is that alkalized water restores the natural chemical balances in the body. Many asthma sufferers claim to have little or no breathing issues after drinking alkalized water. For this reason, alternative health advocates advise purchasing an alkalizer machines.

Asthma is an inflammatory disease that affects the airways. Some claim that asthma is a histamine response caused by dehydration. When the body lacks water, the body reacts.

There are other health benefits to drinking alkalized water. In a study by Dr. Jamie Koufman and Dr. Nikki Johnston, sufferers of acid reflux also benefited greatly from drinking alkalized water. They found that it destroyed pepsin, a stomach enyzme that causes “painful reflux symptoms that can lead to cancer.”

How an alkalizer works is simple. Water first goes through a filter, removing impurities. It is then ionized, passing through positive and negative electrodes. It is believed that the alkalizer provide better hydration in that it breaks up mineral clusters in water.

Filtercon offers a 4 Stage Filter that both alkalizes and filters your water. This module provides 8-10 pH filtered water.

Alkalizer

Alkalization

  • Tourmaline ceramic emits infrared rays and negative ions
  • A Pi ceramic layer increases pH and increases oxidation reduction of the water molecule.
  • An additional ceramic layer emits additional infrared rays.
  • KDF redox layer reduces heavy metals and scale.
  • Calcor quartz media imparts a refreshing mineral taste to the water.
  • The water is thoroughly filtered.

Filtration

Stage One
*Sediment Filter, 5-Micron Polyspun Cartridge, 2 1/2” dia. x 9 3/4″ long
– Polypropylene 5 MICRON filter for removal of sand, silt, dirt, and rust particles.
Stage Two
*Activated Carbon Block Filter .05 Micron, 2 1/2” dia. x 9 3/4″ long
– Carbon filters are effective at removing chlorine, sediment, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from water.
Stage Three
*Activated Carbon Block Filter .05 Micron, 2 1/2” dia. x 9 3/4″ long

It comes with a small storage tank to ensure a supply of fresh alkalized water always ready for you.

Air Pollution, Asthma Burden Unevenly Shared Among U.S. Children

Posted: 05/07/2012 7:44 pm Updated: 05/07/2012 7:55 pm
Kellen Bolden was only 10 years old when an asthma attack took his life, but his mom still remembers him as a “little man” with big aspirations.

Kellen Bolden, 1990-2001.
“He often said to himself, ‘Good morning, Mr. Millionaire,'” recalled Rhonda Mitchell. Kellen’s dreams, she said, weren’t confined to the limits of his hometown, Jonesboro, Ga., a predominantly minority, low-income community about 20 miles south of Atlanta.

Much like its bigger neighbor to the north, and a number of other cities across the country, Jonesboro has long faced air pollution problems.

“We know that air quality is unacceptable in many places,” said Christopher Paul, a graduate student in environmental policy at Duke University. “This is just one of a number of assaults on children’s well-being that makes it harder to lead healthy, successful lives.”  …

“The #1 Pollution Problem in America is Indoor Air Pollution” –U.S. Environmental Protection Agency

Modern buildings are constructed so tightly that odors and pollutants are trapped inside. Nature’s own cleansing process, which uses both activated oxygen and negative ions are left outside.

Dust, pollen, molds, mildew, bacteria and viruses can fill the air in our living spaces. These can cause odors, irritation and allergic response. Fumes from paints, cleansers, carpets, pressed board, fabrics and other chemicals are also breathed in daily by you and your family.

According to the EPA, many pollutants in the typical home or office are at least 10 times higher than in outdoor air. The average American spends 90% of their time indoors.

A Person Takes Over 20,000 Breaths Each Day
Have you ever walked into someone’s home and noticed an odor that you are not accustomed to? Odors are constantly created in the spaces where we live. Finding a simple solution to clean air is not always easy.

Air Filters Are Only Part of the Solution
As air passes through a filter, small particles that are floating in the air are trapped. This is helpful in reducing particles such as dust, pollen and dander, but is only part of the solution. Most gases and odors pass right through even the best Hepa filters.

“We get 60% of our energy from the air we breathe.”
For clean in-home air we recommend the Lightning Air Filter.

The LightningAir Re-creates the same process that Nature uses to keep the air fresh and clean. It generates the negative ions that nature uses to clear the air of dust and other particles.

Plus it has a built-in O3 Sanitizer to remove odors without the use of fragrances. O3 breaks down mold, mildew and other pollutants at their source.

The Ionic Purifier Clears the air of:
* Dust * Dust Mite Dust
* Fire Smoke * Mold Spores
* Tobacco Smoke * Pollen
* Pet Dander
The O3 sanitizer will eliminate or reduce Odors from:
* Pets * Boats * Carpets * Musty Closets
*Mold and Mildew * Bathrooms * Recreational Vehicles
* Pesticides*Yachts * Tobacco * Chemical Fumes
