Unique Green Gift - Moss Rocks

We were introduced to this company this weekend and wanted you all to be notified as soon as possible of this really nice gift idea - Moss Rocks!

Moss rocks come in 3 different sizes that you can choose in 4 different colors. The "rocks" are actually ceramic containers that provided a zen-like style vase that is perfect for moss and showcasing this unique item.

As a plant that requires very little water, this is a fantastic gift for others or for yourself to bring green into your office or home while being water conscious and promoting a go-green lifestyle!

+Blythe Metz  +Alexeyeva Smith +Kathleen Garber +Holly Homer  - What do you all think of this product?

_ +kNOw Pure Water has no partnership with Moss & Stone Gardens and receives no compensation for this post. We simply think that this will be especially interesting to all of you that have us in your circles. If you would like to be removed, please let us know and we will promptly do so._

Question of the Day

As the debate continues in Portland over whether fluoride should be added to the cities water supply, other cities like Phoenix are reconsidering their policies as well. It is notable that both of these cities are notable for their own reasons, Portland as the largest city in the US that doesn't currently add fluoride and  Phoenix as the largest city to reconsider fluoridation (We've attached an article that details the history of fluoridation for you to consider).

Question: What do you think of fluoridation? Should municipalities continue to add it to our water supplies or should they cease to inject this additive?

This Your Body On Soda (Pop)

Our team knew drinking sodas was bad but we didn't know it was this bad until we read a post by +John Cassone, Ph.D. John is an individual in our slowly expanding circle of people on Google that post about health, food, and fitness.

#health   #healthyliving   #healthyeating   #dieting   #healthychoices   #obesity   #diebetes
This is what happens to your body within one hour of drinking a can of soda.

10 minutes: 10 teaspoons of sugar hit your system, which is 100 percent of your recommended daily intake. You'd normally vomit from such an intake, but the phosphoric acid cuts the flavor.

20 minutes: Your blood sugar skyrockets. Your pancreas attempts to maximize insulin production in order to turn high levels of sugar into fat.

40 minutes: As your body finishes absorbing the caffeine, your pupils dilate, your blood pressure rises, and your liver pumps more sugar into the bloodstream. Adenosine receptors in your brain are blocked preventing you from feeling how tired you may actually be.

45 minutes: Your body increases dopamine production, causing you to feel pleasure and adding to the addictiveness of the beverage. This physical neuro response works the same way as it would if we were consuming heroin.

60 minutes: The phosphoric acid binds calcium, magnesium and zinc in your lower intestine, which boosts your metabolism a bit further. High doses of sugar and artificial sweeteners compound this effect, increasing the urinary excretion of calcium. The caffeine’s diuretic properties come into play. (You have to GO!) Your body will eliminate the bonded calcium, magnesium and zinc that was otherwise heading to your bones. And you will also flush out the sodium, electrolytes and water. Your body has eliminated the water that was in the soda. And in the process it was infused with nutrients and minerals your body would have otherwise used to hydrate your system or build body cells, bones, teeth.

The sugar crash begins. You may become irritable and/or sluggish. You start feeling like crap. Time to grab another?

Don't Waste Water - Every Drop Counts!

#knowpurewater #cleanwater #water #MakeADifferenceMonday  
Start the week strong by taking note on the importance of fixing leaky pipes and conserving water! 

- Worldwide, up to 60% of water is lost due to leaky pipes.
- In the U.S, an average of 700 water main breaks occur every day.
- A faucet that drips just 1 second a minute wastes 27,000 gallons of water annually.
- Water has been growing at more than 2x the rate of population increase in the last century.
