Is Antarctica Really Melting?
Bio-Based
Monday, 25 August 2014 19:31
Literally Everywhere, USA, August 2014—We’ve heard a lot of talk and read many articles about the warming of our planet. Here’s an update on this vitally important question and what impact it might have on coastlines around the world:

The Antarctic continent is roughly the size of the United States and Mexico combined and is composed of rock covered by glaciers some 16,000 feet thick. The glaciers form from fallen snow, compacting into successive layers of ice. Then they move downhill toward the coasts and “calve” into the ocean as icebergs. Eventually, they melt out into the sea. Antarctica and Greenland combined hold about 99 percent of the globe’s freshwater ice.

According to the National Snow & Ice Data Center, the result of the entire Antarctic continent melting completely would be a sea level rise of about 200 feet around the world, which would lead to untold devastation.

Too Much of a Good Thing?
Health
Monday, 25 August 2014 19:16
Everywhere, USA, August 2014—Is it true that much of our food is actually over-fortified with excessive amounts of vitamins and minerals that can be dangerous to our health? Here’s an update on the facts, and a suggestion to be cautious.

Added nutrients in the processed foods we eat can indeed be too much of a good thing, especially for kids. Nearly half of American children aged eight and under consume potentially harmful amounts of vitamin A, zinc and niacin because of excessive food fortification. This is according to a report from non-profit health research and advocacy group Environmental Working Group (EWG). Outdated nutritional labeling rules and misleading marketing tactics used by food manufacturers add to the problem. EWG’s analysis for the “How Much Is Too Much?” report focused on two frequently fortified food categories: breakfast cereals and snack bars.

Important Anniversary
Health
Monday, 25 August 2014 20:02
The lifestyle of your editors, which has always been healthy and active, began to soar this time last year. And since it’s been awhile that we talked about it, we thought perhaps this would be a good time to provide an update.

Our important anniversary coming up is September 23. It was on this date last year when we were introduced to Zija, an all-natural, made-in-the-USA product derived from the Moringa Tree. The person introducing it was a client, but not one of our health and wellness accounts. He was (is) just a smart guy who had done his due diligence and was using the product to lose about 50 pounds and keep it off. And eight months later, he did, but has lost 80 pounds. Most importantly, everything else in his system improved. Today he looks like a new man, and not necessarily a six-footer who had just rid himself of 80 pounds.

Like most anyone we were somewhat skeptical, but something from the past caused a bell to ring when he began talking about the product: We had done an article on the Moringa Tree about two years ago, reporting on its efficacy.

If you Love Coffee, You’ll Adore This
Health
Monday, 25 August 2014 19:46
Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, August 2014—There’s a revolutionary new consumer product out there called VitaPerk, the first branded nutraceutical specifically designed to use in coffee.

It was created to address an American diet that is becoming more and more unbalanced. We have on-the-go lifestyles and an over-abundance of foods low in nutrients and high in fat, sodium, and added sugars to thank for it. 

Vitaperk to the rescue! Consumers now have the ability to conveniently add a full spectrum of essential vitamins and minerals to their coffee. With a market of 183 million coffee drinkers in the U.S. and over 400 million cups consumed daily, VitaPerk is in the right place at the right time.

The Future of Fuel Cells
Bio-Based
Monday, 25 August 2014 19:23
Everywhere, USA, August 2014—Fuel cells have been around awhile, but are still little more than science fiction at our fingertips. Is driving a car loaded with these babies really any greener than conventional gas-powered internal combustion cars?

A decade ago cars powered by fuel cells seemed like the future of green automotive travel, but many analysts now think otherwise.

These futuristic cars run on hydrogen fuel and emit only heat and water vapor. The drive train is powered by electricity generated by mixing on-board hydrogen with airborne oxygen. No greenhouse gases are emitted. The renewable fuel can be produced domestically. Environmentalists love them.

Alternative Healthcare Comes of Age
Health
Wednesday, 30 July 2014 18:31
Bolingbrook, Illinois, July 2014—Scrip Companies is a global distributor of equipment and supplies for complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) professionals, home health providers and consumers. They recently released a White Paper, “Healthcare Revolution: The Growing Popularity of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM).” The paper explores the rise of CAM in response to cost trends in the U.S. healthcare system and the influence of the aging Baby Boomer generation.

“The widespread shift toward patient-centric care has triggered a growing demand for chiropractic, massage therapy, acupuncture, laser therapy, and other natural approaches to wellness,” says Kray Kibler, chief operating officer and chief financial officer, Scrip. “CAM emphasizes the natural healing ability of the body versus the emphasis on technology for healing in conventional medicine.”

A study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention determined the most common complementary health approaches used by U.S. adults:

non-vitamin, non-mineral dietary supplements (17.9 percent) practitioner-based chiropractic or osteopathic manipulation (8.5 percent)
yoga with deep breathing or meditation (8.4 percent) massage therapy (6.8 percent).
