Is it better to go cold or hot?

tea

Have you ever wondered what kind of water is best for your body during a meal? We order hot tea when we’re sick but ice cold water after a long day at the beach. Which is best for your overall health? Sorry to upset those ice cold water lovers, but drinking cold water can be harmful, especially if you eat unhealthy. Cold water solidifies oils in your body that you consume after eating and slows digestion. Once the solidified particles react with acids that break down your food, they are absorbed by the intestine faster than solid food. The result is a film that lines the intestine and create fatty deposits that can lead to cancer.

What’s worse, the more oily foods you eat, the more rapidly this process occurs in your body. Eating unhealthily and drinking cold water every time you consume food can lead to other grave health risks such as heart disease and diabetes.

Since it takes energy for your body to cool down low temperature water, that means it takes calories to do so. If you drink warmer water with a meal, like hot soup or tea, all of these risks stated above will be less likely to occur. Take a moment to think about what you’re eating for dinner tonight and pair your meal with a nice green or herbal tea. Or pick a water-based soup like thai coconut or chicken noodle.

All of these steps reduce your risk for illness and diseases. To check out more about heart health, visit http://www.heart.org. To learn more about water, check out filtercon.com or call us at 800-550-1995.

How San Diego is Saving Water during the Drought

Last week the San Diego community received the 2014 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report handbook. In it contains information about where the city’s water is sourced from, how the water treatment process works, how the city is diversifying our water, and how the city is moving towards more sustainable practices.

By 2035, the city of San Diego plans to have 1/3 of its drinking water supplied through a program that purifies recycled water. It is planned to produce about 15 million gallons of water for the city each day. The technology used to do so requires membrane filtration, reverse osmosis, advanced oxidation with ultraviolet light, and hydrogen peroxide. The city tested this method through a one-year project using 9,000 water quality tests and daily monitoring to ensure that no contaminants were present in the recycled water. The California Department of Public Health and San Diego Regional Water Quality Control Board approved the recycled water purifying process as it met all federal and state drinking water standards.

San Diego is also exploring ways to use groundwater basins to provide water storage, capture rainwater for recycling purposes, and implement an ocean desalination plant to produce desalinated water for use throughout San Diego County.

The 2014 Water Quality Report also states that the city has been mandated to reduce its water use by 16% as a whole. They are asking residents and businesses to identify where they can most save water and give tips on the best ways to do so. Some of these include: only watering your lawn two times per week, putting low-flow heads on your faucets and showerheads, and evaluating your pipes for possible water leaks. They are also urging residents to use the City’s Public Utilities Department website, wastenowater.org, for water-saving resource guides.

Are you wasting water throughout your home? Filtercon Technologies is a full-line water treatment company. They have whole-house water filters that don’t waste water, save you money, and keep you healthy! They are one of the most trusted water filtration systems in the state, and work mostly by referral.

Warm Water versus Cold Water

Did you know the Chinese and Japanese prefer drinking hot tea with their meals, not cold water?

It is very Harmful to have Cold Drink/Water during a meal because, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow down digestion. Once this ‘sludge’ reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster  than the solid food. It will line the intestine. Very soon,  this will turn into fats and lead  to  cancer.  It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.

Who is the “Green” Generation?

Screen Shot 2014-09-08 at 2.38.55 PMPhoto Credit to the Girl Scouts River Valleys

Who is the “Green” Generation? Those born before 2000 or those born after 2000?

Check out this scenario:

At the checkout stand, a young cashier suggested to an older lady to consider bringing her own grocery bags in the future to preserve the environment.

The woman apologized to the young girl and explained, “We didn’t have this ‘green thing’ back in my earlier days.”

The young clerk responded, “That’s our problem today. Your generation did not care enough to save our environment for future generations.”

The older lady said that she was right — our generation didn’t have the “green thing” in its day.

The older lady went on to explain:
“Back then, we returned milk bottles, soda bottles and beer bottles to the store. The store sent them back to the plant to be washed and sterilized and refilled, so it could use the same bottles over and over. They really were recycled. But we didn’t have the “green thing” back in our day.

Grocery stores bagged our groceries in brown paper bags that we reused for numerous things. Most memorable besides household garbage bags was the use of brown paper bags as book covers for our school books. This was to ensure that public property (the books provided for our use by the school) was not defaced by our scribblings. Then we were able to personalize our books on the brown paper bags. But, too bad we didn’t do the “green thing” back then.

We walked up stairs because we didn’t have an escalator in every store and office building. We walked to the grocery store and didn’t climb into a 300-horsepower machine every time we had to go two blocks.

We didn’t have the “green thing” in our day.
Back then we washed the baby’s diapers because we didn’t have the throw away kind. We dried clothes on a line, not in an energy-gobbling machine burning up 220volts. Wind and solar power really did dry our clothes back in our early days. Kids got hand-me-down clothes from their brothers or sisters, instead of brand new clothing.

Back then we had one TV, or radio, in the house — not a TV in every room. And the TV had a small screen the size of a handkerchief (remember them?), not a screen the size of classroom chalkboard.

In the kitchen, we blended and stirred by hand because we didn’t have electric machines to do everything for us.

When we packaged a fragile item to send in the mail, we used wadded up old newspapers to cushion it, not Styrofoam or plastic bubble wrap.

Back then, we didn’t fire up an engine and burn gasoline just to cut the lawn. We used a push mower that ran on human power. We exercised by working in our gardens and farms so we didn’t need to go to a health club to run on treadmills that operate on electricity or hire gardeners.

We didn’t have the “green thing” back then.
We drank from a fountain when we were thirsty instead of using a cup or a plastic bottle every time we had a drink of water.

We refilled writing pens with ink instead of buying a new pen, and we replaced the razor blade in a razor instead of throwing away the whole razor just because the blade got dull.

But we didn’t have the “green thing” back then.
Back then, people took the streetcar or a bus and kids rode their bikes to school or walked instead of turning their moms into a 24-hour taxi service in the family’s $45,000 SUV or van, which cost what a whole house did before the”green thing.”

We had one electrical outlet in a room, not an entire bank of sockets to power a dozen appliances.
And we didn’t need a computerized gadget to receive a signal beamed from satellites 23,000 miles out in space in order to find the nearest burger joint.”

But isn’t it sad the current generation laments how wasteful we old folks were just because we didn’t have the “green thing” back then?

We don’t like being old in the first place, so it doesn’t take much to really piss us off… especially from a tattooed, multiple pierced smart-ass who can’t make change without the cash register telling them
how much.

Say No to Fluoride in Your Water

Kids drinking water

We’ve grown up thinking Fluoride was a good substance for our dental hygiene. In reality, it not only a toxin but a highly toxic fertilizer-industry byproduct that is in our municipal water supply. A water supply which ends up in our very own tap water at home, offices, and other locations. The city of Dallas is one of the many US cities considering the end of fluoridation in our water. The end of fluoridation in Dallas would make it the largest city in the US to stop fluoridating its water and save about $1.8 million dollars. What is making Dallas councillors change their minds about fluoridation?

Professor Paul Connett, who testified on June 11 about water fluoridation and the fluoride health risks. He presented various facts on the dangers of fluoride and how it is not a nutrient and that no biochemical process in humans need fluoride. The Food and Drug Administration classifies fluoride as an “unapproved drug.” 97% of Europe doesn’t even fluoridate their water so why are we? Most people believe that fluoride battles tooth decay but there are better alternatives such as dry brushing or baking soda. Alternatives that won’t lead to possible brain damage, which can be caused by fluoride. There are 11 known industrial chemicals that can harm the brain development in human fetuses and infants. There are currently 7 U.S. cities that have stopped fluoridation in their water supply.

If you are interested in reducing almost all of the fluoride in your water, consider purchasing a Filtercon under the counter and whole house systems. The Under The Counter filter has three stages where water is being filtered and conditioned by Activated Alumina, an Activated Carbon Block filter, and a Granulated Activated Carbon Block filter. It can be portable and used outside of your kitchen sink.  DSCN0880 resizedsm

The Filtercon Whole House Fluoride Filter can be added to the Filtercon Whole House Water Filtration and Conditioning System for a completely maintenance free, great tasting, fluoride free water from every faucet, bath, and shower in your home. Your home tap water will undergo three stages of water filtration and conditioning. Stage one is Activated Alumina, which will reduce the fluoride and Stage two is up to 69 lbs of high grade coconut shell activated carbon. Stage three is up to 20lbs of Quartz (Nature’s own filtration media) and Stage four is K.D.F. 55 Medium considering of high purity copper zinc granules. The water passes through our patented HYDROMAGNETIC  module which conditions the water non-chemically by restructuring and realigning the polarity of the mineral molecules without removing those healthy minerals from the water.  filterconfluoride

Ways You Can Conserve Water during a Drought

Water Glass

How to Save Water during a Drought

1. Conserve water by not running water while you wash the dishes or brushing your teeth.

2. When it rains, collect rainwater to water your garden.

3. Time your showers. The Green Cross recommends you cut off a minute of shower time, which can save about 3,600 litres of water per year.

4. Enjoy cold water? Keep a jug of tap water in the fridge to avoid running the water until it turns cold. Purchase an eco-friendly filtration system for your home to get pure water instead.

5. Don’t waste a drop of water. A faucet dripping water can waste around 15 litres of water a day. Be sure to fix leaking toilets or spinklers.

6. Fitting low-flow adapters on taps and using water efficient showerheads can make a difference.

7. Organic food does not use pesticides. Meat eaters should make a day a week ‘meatless.’ Those who love seafood and fish should make sure they are sustainably sourced.

8. Become informed about embedded water. Apples are 70 litres of embedded water. Hamburgers require 2,400 litres of water!

9. Avoid purchasing bottled water. Use a reusable water bottle with a filtration system to get the purest water possible anywhere.

10. Conserve uses of a washing machine or dishwasher. Only use when there is a full load for dishes or dirty laundry.

11. Recycle as much as you can. Recycle your electronics, papers, plastic, aluminum cans, and cardboard. Recycling one pound of water = 13 litres of water saved!

12. Remember to REDUCE, REUSE, and RECYCLE.
