🍎 Today’s Health Question ~ Is Alkaline Water Better for you than Plain Water?

For Most, Plain Water is the Best Choice

Bottled water sold as alkaline water is subject to regulation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Alkaline water sometimes has nutrients added to it to achieve an alkaline pH. Scientists use pH to describe how acidic a substance is on a scale of 0 to 14. By definition, a substance is alkaline if it has a pH of over 7. Because alkaline water has a higher pH level than does plain tap water, proponents say that it can neutralize acid in your bloodstream. However, research suggests that alkaline water is unlikely to significantly change blood pH. Some studies suggest that alkaline water might help slow bone loss, but it’s not clear if the benefit is maintained over the long term. Some say that alkaline water can help prevent disease, such as cancer and heart disease. However, there’s little credible evidence to support such claims.


💡 Something to Think About

Everyone has experienced a time when things didn’t go their way. Great plans evaporate and dreams vaporize. There are few choices, we can create new plans and dreams; or, we can feel sorry for ourselves and pack it in. Choose to live. Choose to create new plans and dreams.


🌾 Today’s Poem ~ Loss and Gain

Loss and Gain

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When I compare
What I have lost with what I have gained,
What I have missed with what attained,
Little room do I find for pride.

I am aware
How many days have been idly spent;
How like an arrow the good intent
Has fallen short or been turned aside.

But who shall dare
To measure loss and gain in this wise?
Defeat may be victory in disguise;
The lowest ebb is the turn of the tide.
