Are you sprinkling Salt or Plastic ?

Hello Readers,  Coming back after so long with this post ,  An eye opener post.  Always love to share healthy information and here again with that.

Presently every food contains some unwanted unhealthy nutrients. either to keep them fresh for long or during their production/manufacturing or for taste betterment. Today’s information is on Salt, the basic needed ingredient in almost every meal.

Over 90% of sampled salt brands globally were found to contain micro-plastics, with the highest number coming from salt sourced in Asia, according to a new study co-designed by Kim, Seung-Kyu, Professor at Incheon National University and Greenpeace East Asia.

The study, which has been published in Environmental Science & Technology, a peer-reviewed scientific journal, analyzed 39 various salt brands globally, showing that plastic contamination in sea salt was highest, followed by lake salt, then rock salt – an indicator of the levels of plastic pollution in the areas where the salt was sourced.Only three of the salt brands studied did not contain any microplastic particles in the replicated samples.

Recent studies have found plastics in sea food, wildlife, tap water, and now in salt. It’s clear that there is no escape from these plastics crisis, especially as it continues to leak into our waterways and oceans,” said Mikyoung Kim, Campaigner at Greenpeace East Asia. “We need to stop plastic pollution at its source. For the health of people and our environment, it is incredibly important that corporations reduce their reliance on throwaway plastics immediately.”

The study highlights Asia as a HotSpot for global plastic pollution meaning that the ecosystem and human health in Asian marginal seas could potentially be at greater risk because of severe maritime micro-plastics pollution.

Assuming intake of 10 grams per day of salt, the average adult consumer could ingest approximately 2000 micro-plastics each year through salt alone, as the study suggest.

“The findings suggest that human ingestion of micro-plastics via marine products is strongly related to plastic emissions in a given region,” said Professor Kim, Seung-Kyu, corresponding author of the study. “In order to limit our exposure to micro-plastics,preventative measures are required, such as controlling the environmental discharge of mismanaged plastics and more importantly, reducing plastic waste” he added.

So that’s it guys , Reduce your plastic use for your upcoming generation’s health and of-course for your health. See what you are eating at present and what people will eat in future – Plastic Plastic and Plastic ?

An Orange a day is as important as an Apple a day for your Health, Why?

Why this Apple is so famous? Have you all any idea about it? Well well, I am talking about the fruit -Apple, not that iphone company.

By the way that Iphone company Apple also make the apple very well known. But some other things are like since we start learning an Alphabet, the very first alphabet is A and we identity it as A for APPLE. And another is that famous quote for health is “An Apple a day, Keeps the Doctor away.” Remember it? I know who can forget that? 😃

I am not criticising the popularity of Apple. But just like Apple, What do you know about Orange? Except that it is good source of Vitamin C.

Let me tell you guys….Orange is a good source of vitamins and minerals, especially vitamin C,thiamin,folate and potassium.

Flavanoids in Oranges helps to prevent against the eye disease.

A new study has shown that people who regularly eat oranges are less likely to develop macular degeneration(eye disease) than people who do not eat oranges.

The research showed that people who ate at least one serving of oranges everyday had more than a 60% reduced risk of developing late macular degeneration 15 years later.

Eating an orange once a week seems to offer significant benefits. Data shows that flavonoids found in oranges appear to help protect against the disease.

Flavonoids are powerful antioxidants found in almost all fruits and vegetables, and they have important anti-inflammatory benefits for the immune system. Common foods which contain flavonoids are tea, apples, red wine and oranges.

For Macular degeneration age is the strongest known risk factor and the disease is more likely to occur after the age of 50. There is currently no cure for the disease. So it’s better to prevent by adding an Orange to your daily diet. ☺

Stay Healthy, Stay Happy
