Tapped

This documentary is about the (bottled) water industry. It looks pretty good, but I haven’t watched it yet.

Here is the trailer.

And here are some excerpts. About the chemicals that end up in the water from sewage and hormon-like substances leaking from water bottles.

Water and privatization.

And here you can watch the whole movie.

Small Space Big Style

I started watching this show today. Not that great, I mean it’s made by my favourite channel, Fox, what do I expect?! I can’t even believe I’m recommending this show here, I must be scraping the bottom of the barrel. Ah well, I’m a sucker for architecture and interior design and I LOVE to see interesting design ideas, at the moment especially how people deal with small spaces. To see some creative ideas. I watched the first 2 parts of this episode and it didn’t quite blow me away. I mean they had the usual staircase/bookcase solution, but to be honest, when I go all minimalist I won’t be needing a bookcase as I’ll probably only own 3 books or something. Now, of course, I could put something else in the shelf, but I hate clutter, so yeah, not for me that one. One of the flats had an interesting “fold out” kitchen, but I do find it rather annoying having to convert furniture all the time, like beds and offices and whatever else.. Some of it can be alright, but I NEED a proper bed!!

 

 

Amalgam And Root Canals

Amalgam fillings are made up of about 50% mercury.

Mercury poisoning has so many symptoms, I can’t even bother listing them all, but here is a list. It can have negative effects on the nervous system, gastrointestinal tract, damage your immune system, negatively effect the cardiovascular system and so forth.

Mercury in the body is linked to Alzheimer’s and even unborn children have mercury measured in their brains, if their mothers had mercury fillings done.

In this experiment you can see the Mercury gassing off the teeth. ‘Smoking teeth’, now that’s just disgusting.

And can this be my dentist please?! This video shows how amalgam fillings can be removed safely.
I wan’t to get my last amalgam fillings removed, but removing them safely is so expensive and not many dentists offer it.

I’ve heard about the health risks mercury poses, I mean it’s a pretty obvious one and I heard root canals aren’t good for you either, but I never really properly checked out why.

This is like one of the only videos I didn’t nearly fall asleep to while watching it.

Apparently you can get infections, that can give you heart problems and all sorts of problems from the bacteria trapped in the tooth that causes infections.

And have you heard of coconut oil pulling before? I hadn’t, until I checked for these other oral health videos. I might give that a try.. can’t do any harm!

So, obviously you wanna avoid metals in your mouth or anywhere in your body if you can. But yeah, I still have to look more into that. Some doctors recommend to not even use metal in crowns or even titanium posts for implants. You really gotta do extensive research to know what your getting and the health risks it may involve.
