Mercury Poisoning Because Dentists Still Use Mercury

Mercury Poisoning from Dental Work

As someone who had Mercury poisoning from dental work, this post struck a nerve and I hope it helps to check with Dentists what it is they are using in tooth fillings.


Story at-a-glance

  • Half of the dentists in the U.S. still use dental or “silver” amalgam, 50 percent of which is mercury, not silver. Mercury is the most volatile and toxic of the heavy metals, and the vapors released when chewing or brushing pose a clear and present danger to health, especially your brain and kidneys — and it’s a reproductive toxin
  • This month, the Minamata Convention on Mercury takes effect, which means countries that have ratified the treaty must take steps to reduce use of mercury amalgam
  • I will match every dollar you give to Consumers for Dental Choice during Mercury Awareness Week (up to a total of $100,000). This offer to double your gift goes through midnight August 27, 2017

The Secret To A Longer Life

 The Italian island of Sardinia has more than six times as many centenarians as the mainland and ten times as many as North America. Why?

Menopausal Weight Gain

Menopausal Weight Gain

This post is most important and explains what happens when you gain weight during the Menopause and why.

Our bodies are constantly changing. Your metabolism now isn’t what it was when you were three, nor is your body chemistry. As we age, things change whether we want them to or not. Among the many changes are than those that occur at middle age, such as the ever-dreaded menopause weight gain.

Menopause is the natural process by which women leave child-bearing age. As the physical changes of the process begin and continue, many women experience the (sometimes unpleasant) consequence of weight gain. Understanding that this is common and what causes it will help you to address any unwanted pounds to help you keep your youthful health and appearance.

Hormonal Changes During Menopause


The onset of puberty in girls results in an increase in estrogen production to stimulate ovulation. Estrogen levels will remain fairly stable but gradually start to decline as a woman reaches her late 40s and early 50s.

5 Foundations For Dry Skin

5 Foundations for dry skin

A post about foundation Make up that is suitable for dry skin.

 All skin types face problems when it comes to finding a foundation that works. Oily skin faces the battle of foundation becoming shiny and not lasting longer than a few hours, for those with combination skin, it can be difficult to find a foundation that is even all over and lasts in the t-zone and for dry skin, like mine, it can be difficult to find a foundation that doesn't age the skin, cling to particularly dry patches and cake. I have spent many years (and a lot of money) trying lots of foundations and have compiled a list of five that I find work really well on my dry skin, which I want to share with you today. I tend to favour a dewy finish but some of these are more satin or luminous than dewy but if you generally like the "lit from within" look, you will like all of these foundations. Obviously, skincare is very important no matter what your skin type and all bases will apply better to exfoliated, moisturised and primed skin.
