Flavonoids May Decrease the Risk of Cancer & Heart Disease

Participants consuming about 500 mg of total flavonoids a day had the lowest risk of cancer or heart disease death.

According to research from Edith Cowan University (EDCU) published in Nature Communications consuming flavonoid-rich products like apples and tea may protect against cancer and heart disease, especially for smokers and heavy drinkers. The study which lasted 23 years studied 53,048 Danes.

The study subject who habitually consumed moderate to high amounts of foods rich in flavonoids were less likely to die from cancer or heart disease.

It’s important to note that flavonoid consumption does not counteract all of the increased risk of death caused by smoking and high alcohol consumption.

A variety of fruit is a smarter move than sticking with multiple daily servings of one thing a day.

Examples of flavonoids a day that you can consume are:

One cup of tea

One apple

One orange

100 grams of blueberries

100 grams of broccoli

“Flavonoids have been shown to be anti-inflammatory and improve blood vessel function, which may explain why they are associated with a lower risk of death from heart disease and cancer.”

7 Ways to Make Your Laundry More Eco-Friendly

Image result for pictures of laundry

We don’t always give them much thought, but our washers and dryers can account for a significant part of our home’s energy and water use. The average family does as many as eight loads of laundry every week, requiring a good deal of energy and thousands of gallons of water. If you’re trying to shrink your ecological footprint, consider some of these simple ways to minimize the impact of your laundry.

1. Use an energy efficient washing machine

A high efficiency washer may use less than half the amount of water of a conventional top loader. While a top loader can use as much as 54 gallons of water, the most efficient machines use only seven. Multiply that savings by the hundreds of loads you do each year, and you’re saving thousands of gallons of water.

High efficiency washers also use less electricity, and because they use less water, they’ll also require less energy to heat that water if you do warm or hot loads. In addition, they leave clothes dryer, so you’ll cut drying time and thus energy use. They’re also gentler on clothes so your clothes will last longer, yet another way high efficiency washers save energy. Of course, all these savings of water and energy means you’ll be saving money as well. Replacing an older washer with a high efficiency one will likely pay for itself over the machine’s lifetime.

When camping or traveling, you can even skip the washer altogether with a clever Scrubba bag that lets you wash small loads of laundry by hand in just a few minutes. Lightweight and portable, this bag is perfect for traveling and camping. Scrubba donates some its profits to clean water projects around the world.

2. Wash less often

Some folks have been trained to think that if they wear something once, it needs to hit the hamper. Not so. If it looks and smells clean, go a little longer between washes and you’ll save water, energy (your own and the electrical sort), and time. Run only full loads and save still more energy and water. The larger capacity of high efficiency washers also lets you wash fewer loads overall.

3. Use cold water

Cut the energy used to clean your clothes by choosing cold water settings as often as possible. Up to 90% of the energy used to wash your clothes goes to heating water! If every load laundered in the US used cold water instead of hot, the country would slash millions of tons of carbon emissions each year. This simple switch may also save you hundreds of dollars per year, depending on how much laundry you do, what kind of water heater you have, and what your utility rates are.

4. Avoid harmful chemicals               

Conventional detergents, stain removers, and dryer sheets contain synthetic chemicals linked to endocrine disruption, developmental toxicity, and other health concerns. Fortunately, there’s no shortage of non-toxic alternatives for your laundry room, from plant-based detergents to oxygen-based brighteners. Good old white vinegar makes an effective fabric softener and stain remover.

5. Use a clothesline or dryer balls to reduce energy consumption

Clothes dryers are second only to refrigerators in household energy use, so cutting back on drying will reduce your home’s carbon footprint. Line-dry clothes when you can, which will also help your clothes last longer. Outside, you can use a simple clothesline or breeze catcher and your clothes will benefit from the anti-microbial and whitening effects of the sun. Breeze catchers offer as much as 140 linear feet of drying space and rotate in the wind for faster drying times.

In winter, if you don’t have a good place for a clothesline outside, or your family has pollen allergies, you can hang clothes inside to dry. Just be sure to allow adequate ventilation, so moisture levels don’t get too high and promote indoor mold growth.

Some people like to hang clothes near their wood-burning stove, which not only helps clothes dry faster, but also adds humidity to dry indoor air.

When you do run the dryer, be sure to keep your lint screen clean so air can flow and dry your clothes faster. Use the moisture-sensing setting if your dryer has one rather than timed drying. Also, try dryer balls to reduce dry time and soften clothes. Dryer balls let you avoid the harmful chemicals in conventional dryer sheets; you can add essential oils if you want your clothes scented.

6. Choose natural clothing fibers

When we launder synthetic fibers like polyester fleece, acrylic, and nylon, thousands of microscopic pieces of plastic wash away with the rinse water. Research has shown that marine life ingest these fibers and absorb plastics into their tissue, not healthy for them or for the animals eat them—including us! You can help the plastic pollution problem by choosing organic cotton, wool, bamboo or other natural fibers for your clothing and bedding.

7. Skip the dry cleaners

Most dry cleaners use a chemical called perc (short for perchloroethylene) that research has linked to cancer and other health problems. The easiest way to avoid it? Don’t buy clothes that require dry cleaning! When I see “dry clean only” on a label, I just move on.

If you already own clothes that call for dry cleaning, see if there’s a “green cleaner” near you. These alternative cleaners use liquid carbon dioxide to clean clothes safely without exposing you or their workers to perc. Bonus points if you give them the plastic and hangers back to use for another customer!

Many delicate fabrics can be hand washed or put in the delicate cycle of your high efficiency washer, which is gentler on clothes than top loaders.

Some simple tweaks to your laundry routine will not only cut down on energy and water but will save you money as well. Think of all the other uses that money could be put to! You could get that rain barrel or solar oven you’ve been eyeing, or put a deposit on the solar panels you’ve been wanting to really green your home. Plus, you’ll revel in the knowledge that you’ve taken another step to make your home as green and eco-friendly as possible.

How to Select an Environmentally Friendly Laundry Detergent

Store shelves are lined with bottles and boxes of laundry detergents shouting “Green”, “Organic”, “Natural”. But are these really better for the environment?

Laundry Detergent Ingredients and the Environment

The largest problem ingredients for the environment in laundry detergents are phosphates and some surfactants, mainly nonylphenol ethoxylates or NPE. Phosphates were banned from United States-produced laundry detergents in the 1970s, so they are not a severe problem.

Surfactants, which help soil to float away from garments, form a micelle which surrounds the piece of dirt and carries it away. The micelle are toxic to fish because they get into the fish gills and impairs their ability to get oxygen from the water. The largest detergent manufacturer in the United States, Proctor and Gamble (Tide, Gain) stopped using this nonylphenol ethoxylate surfactants several years ago and phosphates have been banned in laundry detergents for many years.

Other environmental concerns are the chemicals in detergent that are derived from petroleum and the impact of plastic packaging. Most major manufacturers now use containers that can be recycled and often contain post-consumer recycled plastic.

Even knowing which chemical compounds to avoid can be difficult because they are seldom listed on labels. While some manufacturers list every laundry detergent ingredient on the label, most do not because it is not required by law. However, with a little effort, you can visit each manufacturer’s website to view a list of complete ingredients. That’s where the EPA Safer Choice logo becomes extremely helpful. When you see that designation, you know that you’re buying an environmentally friendly product. 

The EPA also provides a Safer Chemical Ingredients list on the Safer Choice website to help you with comparison research. You can also select a detergent without added dyes and fragrances to reduce chemical exposure for your family and the environment.

The EPA Safer Choice Program

In the early 2000s, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) introduced a program called Design for the Environment to let us know which products live up to their claims. One of the products that was included in the program was laundry detergent. The agency asked manufacturers to provide a complete list of ingredients. If the company was using the safest chemical for each type of ingredient, the product earned a special designation. If the product was not environmentally friendly, the EPA encouraged the company to reformulate the product. The Design for the Environment Seal was awarded to laundry detergents that met EPA requirements as both good for business and the environment.

As more than 2,000 diverse products qualified for the program, the EPA branding and labels were changed to the Safer Choice program. Products with the Safer Choice label identify products with safer chemical ingredients for the environment that consumers can use without sacrificing quality or performance.

The Safer Choice program offers a list of safe cleaning products on its website ranging from all-purpose cleaners to hand soaps to laundry detergents, fabric softeners and boosters. You’ll see that only a few laundry detergent brands are listed. This does not mean that all others are “bad”. Applying for certification is currently voluntary. As more manufacturers reformulate a safer cleaning product and performance testing, additional detergents will receive the designation.

If you want to purchase from a company that is 100% chemical free and uses essential oils that have not be exposed to synthetic fertilizers or weed killing chemicals I’d highly recommend Young Living’s Thieves Laundry Soap. The Thieves line of products is actually amazing. Toothpaste (which my family and I love to use), Thieves foaming hand soap, Thieves dish soap, and the list just goes on!

The Dangers of Store-Bought Make-Up

Photo by freestocks.org on Unsplash

I’m all for ladies using makeup if they want to. My wife happens to look great without it, but I know a lot of women feel better about themselves when they use make-up and that’s okay IF you’re not putting on stuff that will actually HARM your health. You might as well use make-up that enhances your looks without harming your health, right? Savvy Minerals may be your answer. No harmful ingredients and you’ll look great using them.

First what it doesn’t have in them, that your current make-up supply may. You’ll want to inspect them and make sure to get rid of them right away if you find anything in them that could harm you.

Bismuth oxychloride: A compound of the heavy metal bismuth, bismuth oxychloride, is a pigment that can cause skin irritation.

Formaldehyde: A recognized human carcinogen, formaldehyde is commonly used as a preservative.

Phthalates: Phthalates are used as a solvent and fixative in synthetic fragrances but are also known as endocrine disruptors that have been linked to fertility issues, hormone imbalances, developmental problems, and more.

Red 7 lake: A bright red pigment, red 7 lake is derived from coal tar. What a dirty origin! It can trigger allergic reactions.

Talc: Often used as a base for powder cosmetics, talc is associated with the development of some cancers (such as ovarian cancer). In its natural form, it also contains asbestos. This stuff is no joke and not to be taken lightly. My own mother died of ovarian cancer and I believe it was due to using Talc powder on her lips after putting on lipstick (this was before it was known that Talc is carcinogenic).

You’ll never find these ingredients in Savvy Minerals. Also, Savvy Minerals are not tested on animals.

You can find out more about Savvy Minerals on Instagram.

Think Small and Act Small

I know Tony Robbins talks about massive action to get things rolling fast. For those that are used to taking massive action steps, it’s great advice, but for those just starting a new habit or goal, perhaps there is a better way…by thinking small and acting small. Let me explain:

Thinking too big stops a lot of people from acting. For example, you think about the homeless and how you could possibly help. Your mind races to just how many homeless there is in your city, your State, and the World. Then you may say to yourself “I’m just one person, what could I possibly do to help this situation, it’s way too big for me. And you give up before you even get started. You’re frozen in your tracks. The truth is though you can act without being an ‘activist’.” What if you started by simply growing your own garden, and giving away to a local food shelter any excess fruits or vegetables you’ve grown to a local food shelter? See this story for more inspiration: https://www.goodnewsnetwork.org/school-turns-resource-greedy-lawn-into-giving-garden/

The same goes for any goal. For example: You want to get your body in shape. So you weigh yourself then lookup for your height and gender how much you should weigh and find you’re 70 pounds overweight. 70 pounds…wow! “How am I ever going to lose that weight?” you ask yourself… then the mind goes on talking to itself “That’s a lot of weight…I don’t know how I’m ever going to lose THAT MUCH weight! Then it might do one of two extremes. It will either have you join and gym and you decide to work out every day for an hour. You hit the gym hard and you are doing great for a week, maybe even two and then ‘life gets in the way’. Your body is too sore, you didn’t know it was going to be this hard, it takes too long, the results aren’t fast enough and you either just stop going, or find you barely go anymore. Or the other extreme response might be “I could never lose that much weight, I give up.” and you don’t do anything to improve your weight. Instead, think small and act small. Do what is called “Anchoring”. It’s connecting a new habit you want to form with an old one. So, you know you need to get more active in producing the weight you want for your body. So what you do is say okay, I’m going to start out by doing five push-ups (or whatever your number is) and I won’t take a shower (a daily habit you already do) until I do 5 push-ups. That’s called “Anchoring” and it creates small action, but the key is it creates immediate action right away towards your goal. You slowly increase that exercise to planks. You now do perhaps 10 push-ups and add planking to it. (You might as well since you’re already on the floor anyhow, right?) You start doing x amount of time planking. You get the idea, now I’m sure. You keep adding to the anchor until you’ve reached the desired time to exercise every day, giving yourself one day off a week for rest. (By the way, if your body is getting sore from exercise Cool Azul Pain Relief Cream works great!)

So I hope you can see how thinking small and acting small to start a new goal or activity works to get you started. Once you are in the habit of creating goals and taking action on them, you may get to the point where you can do massive action goals and activities on a consistent basis. But until then, think small and act small. It works.

Fashion Material Terms and What They Mean

There are now different terms in buying certain types of clothes that mean different things. Such as “Fairtrade”, “Organic” and the such. If you are Earth and people conscious, or simply want to know more about what each of these mean along with other terms in the industry, that’s what this blog post is all about:

Fair Trade: Those who made it earned a fair living wage.

Organic: Clothes, shoes, etc that were made from materials that were grown without using any harsh chemicals.

Vegan: Not made from animals.

Upcycled: Materials that have already been used for something else and used in making a new piece of clothing.

Recycled: An item was created from materials that have been reused (such as plastic, rubber, metal, etc).

Ethical: People who worked on an item were treated safely and paid fairly.

Laws of Abundance Part 7 Secrets to Creativity

Have you ever said to yourself when you viewed something made that was amazing and said: “That’s amazing, I wonder how they came up with that idea?”

This blog post is going to list some known and some rare ways to spark creativity in you. After all, to flow in abundance you must have creativity. To create is divine! Those who create are those who master the world, or at least their part of the world. Think about it, the computer, the cell phone, the automobile, the telephone landline, the radio, the airplane. All these things at one time were thought of and then created. But how? How do you create something from nothing? Of course, it all starts in your mind. Bringing into your mind using the imagination to start the creation process. To give you a better idea of the power of the imagination you need to watch Bob Proctor’s video: CREATE or Disintegrate. Actually, I’d recommend you watch it a few times to grasp just how powerful your mind is.

Creation is what the “big boys” get paid for. The CEO’s of the large corporations of the world. They are of course also decision-makers, but they have vision. What they lack in creativity, they hire others to create for them. In the business world, it’s called “Think Tanks” or ” R&D” short for Research and Development.

God is the original and Master creator. He spoke this world we live in into existence. Why did He speak it? Could He have just thought it instead? Below you’ll get a clue as to why He spoke it out, just as you should when you are creating something you desire.

We are going to explore some ways for you to become more creative. Some of these methods are from the beginning of time, and younger back into ancient Chinese civilization. As you read them, don’t be too quick to dismiss them. Instead, try the different methods out for yourself, and prove to yourself what works.

There are some “tricks” that are not well known to trigger your mind to be creative.

Chinese Iron Balls:

While the right and left side brain hemisphere do work together, it is the right side hemisphere that dominates creativity and imagination.

Placing these balls together in the left hand and rolling them around when you want an extra spike of creativity is the secret to the Chinese Iron Balls also known as Boading balls from where they originated from in China. The often you use these balls in your left hand, the more creative and imaginative you can become.

Some of the abilities popularly associated with the right side of the brain include:

  • Recognizing faces
  • Expressing emotions
  • Music
  • Reading emotions
  • Color
  • Imagination
  • Intuition
  • Creativity

Why the left hand? Because the right side of your brain hemisphere controls the left side of your body. Thus the left hand simulating the right brain hemisphere.

Mind Maps:

A mind map is a visual way to write down goals that will lead to other steps to the goal. In this example above the goal is to figure out what to do for this person’s birthday. So you start in the center of the paper and write down the main thought or goal and then draw lines out from it connecting more thoughts to the main goal. Mind maps are very effective in helping you create an action plan around a main goal or idea.

Saying It Out Loud

Affirmations work better when spoken out loud rather than just silently to yourself. Speaking it aloud sets into motion the vibration through which the thought behind your words reaches and embeds itself in your subconscious mind. *1

Say It Whenever You Can

Another technique that will help to fix your goal or desire in your subconscious is to make it a part of your daily vocabulary. Look for ways to include your affirmation in your normal everyday activities. *1

Write what you want over and over

Although this could be done at the computer, taking pen in hand and writing out your affirmation over and over makes a different kind of impression on your subconscious. *1

Writing it To Be Seen

Put your affirmations on cards or Post-it’s and put them in your wallet, on your desktop computer. Surround yourself with books, pictures, mottoes, and other things that reinforce the idea of you succeeding at your goal. I use a program that you can buy from me called *Mind Movies. You create your own movie track, with pictures, music, and affirmations of whatever it is you are desiring and you watch it three times a day. It’s quite effective!

*Essential Oil named Abundance *2

Essential oils have been used for centuries. Only today are we rediscovering their power to affective our lives for the better by inhalation, direct application (known as neet), and ingestion. Only the purest of essential oils should be used, as synthetic oils are robbed of their vibrational qualities. While synthetic oils may smell even better than a pure essential oil, they are known as dead oils that have no therapeutic value. There is an oil sold by Young Living Essential Oils called Abundance. It is a blend of certain oils put together that ancient cultures to attract prosperity and magnify joy and peace.

Laws of Abundance Part 6 Cash Flow

If you are going to tap into abundance you must pay attention to cash flow.

The first thing to know about cash flow is, where is your cash flowing to and the second thing is, where should it flow to? Without knowing the starting point, it will make it very hard to know where to go. You are where you are. Pay attention to where you are. Listen, if you are a sheepherder, you have to know how many sheep you have, and you have to know where they are. Paying attention to what your sheep are doing is very important in keeping your sheep safe. The same with your money. Know where your money is, and where it’s going. Keep track of it. Is it going in the right direction and if it’s not, you have to “herd” it in the right direction.

The first direction your cash flow should be going is to God. If you’re part of a church you are to pay 10% of your Tithes to God, to help the church fulfill the mission it has (which should be winning the lost to Christ as it’s first priority).

The second direction your money should be going is to pay yourself. You will hear it by anyone that is rich. “Pay yourself first”. I say “Pay yourself second.”

The third direction should be some type of investment. The market, or your own business.

The fourth direction should be your bills.

See The 70/10/10/10 Plan Can Make You Rich by Jim Rohn

Creating cash flow is vital to your financial health. If you only have one stream of cash flow (such as your job) and that stream dries up (as in you get fired or laid off, become too sick to work) then you no longer have that cash flow. So you want multiple cash streams in your life, so if one dries up, you still have the others. But even more than a survival technique, having multiple streams of income can make you a Millionaire.

It has been reported that the average millionaire has seven income streams. I don’t know how true that is, but I do know from my studies that they do have multiple income streams. From three on up.

What types of income streams could you create?

  • A part-time business online or off.
  • Investments that make a good return in dividends and hopefully raise in value too over time.
  • Savings at 5%
  • Inventions
  • Positive income from rental properties.
  • and?

Robert Kiyosaki author of Rich Dad Poor says  the key to wealth is investing in cash-flowing assets

So, watch your money, pay God and yourself first and second, save and invest. This is how the rich get richer and so can you.

Help The World With One Small Thing At A Time

It doesn’t matter really if you believe that we are causing Climate Change or not. There are little habits that a lot of us do each day that could be tweeted in the smallest way to make a big difference in the world we live in.

  • 8.7 Billion gallons of water would be saved this year if every Americans had their car washed just once at the Car Wash instead of washing it at home.
  • Turn off the water while you brush your teeth. Assuming you brush for two minutes twice daily, you could save almost 3,285 gallons per year.
  • Put your vehicle in eco-cruise and save 15% in gas mileage.
  • Get an Electric Vehicle: The Union of Concerned Scientists estimates that over the course of one year, a gas-powered car costs $1,500 to fuel and releases 4.7 metric tons of greenhouse gases. An Electric car costs $421 to fuel and releases only 2.3 metric tons.
  • 90% of the energy used by your washing machine goes to warming its water. Switch to a detergent formulated to work best in cold water.
  • Have fewer paper receipts printed and instead have it emailed to you. 2.34 Million tons of greenhouse gases are from paper.
  • Reduce or eliminate one time uses of plastic bottles. 459,259,300,000 is an estimate of how many single-use plastic bottles are purchased worldwide each year, less than half of which get recycled.

https://amzn.to/2XXv1LN

  • Switch to LED lightbulbs for your home. It’s theorized that their rapid adoption could reduce energy consumption by the equivalent of 44 power plants by 2027.

Help Avoid Bacterial Growth In The Fridge

Clear out the clutter in the back of the Fridge because cold air doesn’t circulate as well in a crowded fridge and so when something gets too warm, it has the potential for bacterial growth.

Also the bottom shelves and drawers (which tend to get dirtier) you should disinfect them every few months. (Please don’t use a sponge unless it’s a fresh one). Thieves Household Cleaner would be the perfect thing to spray down those bottom shelves and drawers because the product is plant-based, so you are spraying something that is safe for food contact and it kills 99.9% of bacteria.
