Tobacco smoking remains to be the primary driver in lung disease onset. Other factors that contribute to respiratory disease onset include air pollution, occupational chemicals and dusts, and frequent lower respiratory infections during childhood. With these risk factors at hand, it might prove beneficial to undergo lung detox to stave off respiratory issues. Here are a few ways to naturally detoxify your lungs:

Sunscreen Ingredient Becomes Toxic in Sunlight and Water

by Mike Barrett, Natural Society:
A chemical commonly found in sunscreen breaks down into toxic compounds when exposed to sun and water, research shows.

Avobenzone is an oil-soluble compound that is notable for its ability to absorb ultraviolet (UV) light. It is most often an ingredient in sunscreen and cosmetics, including lip balms and moisturizers. The compound converts UV rays into safer wavelengths that don’t damage the skin, and transforms UV energy into thermal energy. [1]

The chemical was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in commercial cosmetics in 1988. It is a known endocrine-disruptor.

Frugal Prepping: This Survival Food is One of the Highest Sources of Protein

by Joshua Krause, Ready Nutrition:
So, by now, Guys and Gals, there are many factions to prepping and they all have their time and place, as well as their use. If a light bulb “comes on” when reading the material, then the mission is accomplished. I have mentioned in many of the articles the importance of taking in protein and its use as both a nutritious energy source, as well as in tissue repair and cellular growth.

With the exception of the recommendation of certain supplements that I use regularly, most of what I recommend falls within everyone’s budget. Isn’t that the objective as a survivalist and prepper? To receive the most return on your investment? Well, this is no different here. I wish to recommend the sardine…yes, you read it correctly!…the sardine, as a part of your diet. Let’s jump right into it.

Environmental Nightmare! Dozens Of Highly Toxic Substances Have Been Found In Tap Water All Over America

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:
After reading this article, you will never look at tap water the same way again. Most Americans have generally assumed that the water coming out of our taps is perfectly safe, but the Flint water crisis and other similar incidents are starting to help people to understand that there are some very dangerous substances in our water. In particular, I am talking about things like arsenic, lead, atrazine, perchlorate and a whole host of pharmaceutical drugs. According to an absolutely stunning NRDC report, close to 77 million Americans received their water from systems “that violated federal protections” in 2015. And even if you get your water from a system that meets federal standards, that still does not mean that it is safe.

INCOMING!

Here we go….

Were it not for the provision that Pat Toomey, the Pennsylvania Republican, put into the Senate’s proposed health care reform, this legislation would be moderately important but hardly momentous. Toomey’s provision, however, makes it this century’s most significant domestic policy reform.

It required tenacity by Toomey to insert into the bill a gradually arriving, but meaningful, cap on the rate of growth of per-beneficiary Medicaid spending. It is requiring of Toomey and kindred spirits strenuous efforts to keep it there, which reveals the Republican Party’s itch to slouch away from its uncomfortable but indispensable role as custodian of realism about arithmetic.

Well, no it doesn’t and he isn’t — that is, being realistic about arithmetic.

5 Common Nutrient Deficiencies That Are Ruining Your Health

by Joshua Krause, Ready Nutrition:
I often find myself looking up the nutrient profiles of the foods I eat. I try to do it on a regular basis, just to see where my diet is lacking. What I usually discover, is that I’m deficient in one nutrient or another. You really need to eat a lot of really high quality foods to take in the vitamins and minerals that are recommended by the FDA. And even when you pull that off, it’s still isn’t necessarily enough. The daily recommended values that you see printed on the sides of most food packages, often reflect the minimum nutrients you need, rather than the most optimum nutrient intake.

And I know that I’m not alone. Despite the fact that people living in the United States have access to more food than anyone else in the world, or throughout human history for that matter, millions of Americans are still deficient in many different kinds of nutrients. The most common of which include:

10 Healthy alternatives to toxic processed table salt you can start using today

by Russel Davis, Natural News:
It is no secret that while commercial table salts help flavor dishes, they are extremely detrimental to the body’s overall health. Commercial table salts are 99 percent sodium chloride, are bleached during the production process and may contain harmful substances such as stabilizers that make them practically toxic in nature. Commercial table salts are also found to promote acid formation, which in turn may pose a significant threat to the body’s overall well being.

In contrast, natural sea and rock salts are actually beneficial to the body’s health. Naturally extracted salts generally have lower sodium content than commercial table salts, thus reducing sodium content in the diet. Natural salts also contain trace minerals — such as calcium, iron and magnesium as well as potassium and zinc — that are essential for proper body function. In addition, natural salts do not contain unwanted chemicals found in commercial table salts including bleach, whiteners and stabilizers. Unlike commercial salts, naturally extracted salts like sea salts promote alkaline formation and help maintain a balanced body pH. In turn, this prevents the onset of certain illnesses.

Replacing commercial salts with naturally extracted salts may boost the body’s overall health and help prevent diseases. Here are a few examples of natural salts:

10 Ways your visit to the hospital can get you killed

by S.D. Wells, Natural News:
Modern science and Western medicine can certainly save your life in certain situations, and nobody should take for granted the fact that thousands of American doctors and surgeons save lives every day in hospitals and emergency care facilities. Without hospitals, many life-threatening situations would have much worse odds of survival, especially if you are getting broken bones mended, deep wounds sewn up, having a baby, or emergency surgery for internal bleeding. The scariest part of visiting a hospital, though, is not the problem you checked in to get fixed, but ten other life-threatening “serial killers” that stalk and infect their “prey,” often killing the poorly “defended” patients, who recently checked in, but may never check out again.

We like to think U.S. hospitals are the top in the world regarding technology and safety, but what if you found out that all the advanced technology and doctor expertise in the world is useless when safety gets thrown out the window, and health hazards are coming at you right and left, crippling your immunity and threatening every organ in your body? Most people believe that a hospital is where they should go to be saved from their injuries and sicknesses, but in actuality, the odds of dying in a hospital are far greater than anyone would ever think.
