A recent Harvard study has revealed that concentrations of the chemical bisphenol-A rise around 1000 percent in people who eat one bowl of canned soup per day. Bisphenol-A is often used in the manufacture of plastics but  companies put it in cans to line them. We do not know exactly what this amount of bisphenol-A does in the human body. Scientists, are making a lot of guesses that don't sound at all good. Apparently the chemical is an endocrine disrupter, which means it messes with one's hormones and has therefore been linked to cancerous tumors, birth defects, and other developmental disorders like learning disabilities, ADHD, and cognitive issues, as well as problems with heart disease, obesity and diabetes and sexual development. Make your own soup :)

Many building materials such as paint, wallboards, adhesives, carpets and ceiling tiles can emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs) such as formaldehyde. If you're fitting out a new home or office or renovating one, consider using low or no VOC-emission materials. Search for low or no VOC paints and ask questions about VOCs in all your interior furnishings. Your long term health will thank you for it!

motoroil_disposal

As little as 0.3 gallons of motor oil down the drain can pollute 2,500 gallons of water, as well as contaminate waste treatment plant sludge!  If you have an old car and it's leaking a little oil, try to get it fixed so the oil left on the road is not washed into our precious waterways. Most service stations collect used motor oil so have your car's oil changed professionally. Check if your local service station collects used motor oil for recycling before you take your car in for an oil change.
