The Great Pacific Garbage Patch 🌏
This is the largest of five plastic accumulation zones around the planet. Located between California and Hawaii, it is estimated to cover an area of 1.6 million square kilometres (twice the size of Texas, or three times the size of France).
Plastic is accumulated here as it enters the gyre (rotating ocean currents, clockwise in the Northern hemisphere and is controlled by the Coriolis force - Earths rotation). Once it enters, it is near impossible to leave the gyre.
The GPGP contains around 80,000 tonnes of debris, the equivalent of 500 jumbo jets. 1.8 trillion pieces of plastic are estimated to be floating in the patch, this averages out to be around 250 pieces of plastic per person. 92% of the debris found consists of objects larger than 0.5cm, with 3/4’s of the mass made of macro (5-50cm) and mega-plastics (50+cm).
Once the plastic has been degraded to smaller particles, it can sink down where it can be consumed by marine organisms. The larger bits of debris floating on the surface can be mistaken as food by birds and turtles. .
This is something you do not think of when using a straw at a restaurant, but we should.
[Alcohol kills three million people worldwide each year—more than AIDS, violence and road accidents combined, the World Health Organization said Friday, adding that men are particularly at risk.
The UN health agency's latest report on alcohol and health pointed out that alcohol causes more than one in 20 deaths globally each year, including drink driving, alcohol-induced violence and abuse and a multitude of diseases and disorders.
Men account for more than three quarters of alcohol-related deaths, the nearly 500-page report found.
"Far too many people, their families and communities suffer the consequences of the harmful use of alcohol through violence, injuries, mental health problems and diseases like cancer and stroke," WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said in a statement.
Drinking is linked to more than 200 health conditions, including liver cirrhosis and some cancers. Alcohol abuse also makes people more susceptible to infectious diseases such as tuberculosis, HIV and pneumonia, the report found.
The some three million alcohol-related deaths registered globally in 2016—the latest available statistics—account for 5.3 percent of all deaths that year.
For young people, the numbers are even more alarming, with a full 13.5 percent of all deaths among 20-29-year-olds considered to be alcohol-related, the study found.
Globally, an estimated 237 million men and 46 million women suffer from alcohol use disorders, WHO said.
Alcohol abuse affects nearly 15 percent of men and 3.5 percent of women in Europe, and 11.5 percent of men and 5.1 percent of women in the Americas, it pointed out.]

Porn is inherently anti-love and anti-woman. It’s not harmless to either the person watching it or the performers in it. Many of the woman are drugged or raped on camera and were sexual abuse victims when young. The woman on the screen is someone’s daughter, sister and sometimes mother. When tempted to watch, think about what if that was your mom or sister on the screen instead? @mattfradd
has done some amazing research on this and helped many people break the addiction cycle. If you find yourself addicted to this, go to confession and talk to a priest ASAP and they can give you spiritual exercises to help you 🤗

The major health objective is to have healthy cell molecules. There must be a balance of positive and negative ions in cells and molecules. If the atoms or molecules lose electrons, the atoms and molecules become positively-charged ions. If they gain electrons, they become negatively-charged ions. The ionic technique of cleansing through the feet provides a full-body purge of all vital organs. This can alleviate menopause symptoms, menstrual cramps, sexual health problems, skin problems, acne, sleep problems, restlessness, stress, toothaches, wrinkles, aches and pains, and yeast infections. The internal cleansing can also contribute to faster disease healing and injury recovery. Due to a busy and stressful lifestyle, many people do not eat a balanced diet. They may end up storing excessive quantities of toxins and waste products in their bodies. During a detoxifying foot bath session, ions from the module enter the body and begin to neutralize tissue acid wastes. This process is called reverse osmosis

This is my new channel on YouTube plz do subscribe ,like and share my videos thank you. ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️ Here are some ways binge-watching negatively impacts health: Weight gain and obesity. ... Studies that followed children for long periods of time found that the more TV they watch, the higher the risk of obesity in adulthood and midlife. Increased risk of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
A study conducted by researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health indicates that watching too much television can significantly increase the risk of developing obesity and type 2 diabetes.
Another study carried out at the University of Rhode Island found that prolonged television watching decreases viewers’ sense of self-efficacy in maintaining personal health.
Is Television Good or Bad for People?
Some people claim that television is the root of all evil, while others think of television as a best friend. Some blame the television for society's violence, consumerism, and misinformation, while others see it as a rich resource for education and global understanding.
Who is right?
I know many people who just can't seem to live without TV. As soon as they get home, they turn it on. Even if they have work to do, family to be with, or friends to see, they do it all with the TV on. For many of us, television is such a constant presence in our lives that we haven't stopped to question whether or not it is good, and most never ask ourselves if and how television might be hurting us.
For those of you who are asking this question—to satisfy your own curiosity or for an essay, debate, or other school project—below you will find the costs and benefits of watching television.

It's hot up here in Upstate NY today, but it's also the last day of summer- fall is right around the corner.
And you know what that means- candles. everywhere.
But that's not necessarily a good thing. Trust me, I love the flickering light of a candle just as much as you do, buttttt..... Did you know that burning a candle for just one hour does just as much damage to your lungs as smoke a cigarette?!😱 .
Do your health a favor, and ditch all the candles. I did, and my lungs are much happier for it!
Besides, who needs candles when you can come up with 286461795 diffuser blends that smell WAYYY better?!

Вот и мы иногда любим себя побаловать, (цены там доступные, еда в меру вкусная) - но ребята все мы знаем, что фастфуд, мягко говоря, не полезен для здоровья человека - мы это тоже понимаем, но хочется изредка 😊. Интересно, что за границей цены ощутимо выше, если переводить на наши рубли - и это служит основанием для многих Россиян - отказаться от фаст фуда, хотябы за границей 🧐. Мотивация отличная, для отказа от этих вкусных вредняшек😁 А что ты думаешь о фастфуде? И немного истории: «Макдоналдс корпорейшен» ( #mcdonaldscorporation
) — американская корпорация, до 2010 года крупнейшая в мире сеть ресторанов быстрого питания, работающая по системе франчайзинга. Основатели концепции ресторанов в 1940 году - Дик и Мак Макдоналды.
