These Popular Tea Brands Contain Hazardously High Levels of Pesticides!

in Uncategorized

A study has found that a number if leading tea bags brand contain  hazardously high levels of pesticides.

Tea is generally perceived to be a healthier source of caffeine other than coffee, soda or energy drinks.

However, traditional tea brand names have actually been revealed to contain dangerous levels of hazardous substances.

Apart from high levels of pesticides, they also contain dangerous amounts of fluoride, and artificial active ingredients, including flavors and GMO’s.

The levels found in these products are so high that they are presumed hazardous for ingestion.

Like the majority of most items, not all tea is produced equal.

Many teas are not washed before being dried, therefore non-organic teas can include pesticide residues.

High levels of pesticides found in tea bags

Some tea brands (natural or totally pesticide free) have just recently been found to contain dangerous levels of pesticides.

The chemicals in question include DDE (a metabolite of DDT), heptachlor epoxide, permethrin, and acetamiprid.

These toxic pesticides are labeled carcinogenic and have been found to interrupt the proper function of the endocrine system, health concerns that are worth paying attention to!

Despite the incredible risk, testing completed by CBC’s marketplace found that half of the teas tested contained more than one chemical.

You may find it hard to believe, but one brand actually contained residues of 22 different pesticides!

Buying organic doesn’t necessarily protect you either!

A study revealed: “The organic teas had significantly higher levels of lead contamination if left steeping for more than 15 minutes than the regular teas. Otherwise, there was no significant difference in levels of contaminants between organic teas and regular off the shelf teas.”

Not only should we concern ourselves with pesticide residue on the tea leaves, but even the bags themselves can bring a host of problems.

Mesh style tea bags and plastic tea bags run the risk of leaking toxic chemicals into your tea due to the extreme heat.

Perhaps similar to the concerns that have come to light in relation to leaving a plastic water bottle in a hot car.

CBC Marketplace testing revealed that the only safest tea to consume, containing no pesticide, was Red Rose Orange Pekoe.

While they also confirmed that the products are all grown and harvested following sustainable practices.

Nine Teas That Failed Are listed Below:

– King Cole: Orange Pekoe

– Lipton: Pure Green Tea

– Lipton: Yellow Label Black Tea

– No Name: Black Tea

– Signal: Orange Pekoe

– Tetley: Green Tea

– Twinings: Earl Grey

– Uncle Lee’s Legends of China: Green Tea

– Uncle Lee’s Legends of China: Jasmine Green Tea

Bride reaches alter and reads out cheating fiance’s texts instead of their vows.

in Uncategorized

Cheating is possibly the most hurtful thing you can experience while in a relationship.

Let’s be honest, nobody can be left anything but crushed by the sheer disloyalty of someone who behaves this way.

Which is often the reason why its satisfying when they get caught out.

There’s one articular reason why this woman had a huge reaction when she got her revenger on the day of her weeding. 

She disclosed to her story on  makes happens to make quite an interesting read …

Casey, explains how she had been in a relationship with her soon to be husband, Alex, for six years.

She writes: “This was supposed to be the happiest day of my life, instead, I knew it was the end of my dream relationship and everyone was going to witness it.”

“I felt he was The One instantly. Our families became friends, our lives were entwined, and I believed we’d live happily ever after.”

However, one night before they were about to get married it transpired that Alex had a hidden side to him.

It all began when Casey started to receive a series of screenshots via email.

The message read: “I wouldn’t marry him. Will you?

All the screenshots included a text message conversation that occurred between Alex and a different woman. There were even photographs of him with the other woman, according to Casey.

“The texts were dated from months to only days before. There was no questioning the legitimacy of these messages. I just knew,” Casey said.

However, in spite of the ongoing discoveries of Alex’s disloyalty, Casey wasn’t prepared to unexpectedly drop the wedding plans.

She explains: “How could I cancel when everyone had already traveled to be there and everything was paid for?”

Obviously, in the meantime she was not really prepared to let the man she thought was her life partner escape that easy.

The following day, she kept her cool as she put on a courageous face.

She didn’t inform Alex about the messages and proceeded down the aisle as normal.

Finally, when she reached the alter she decided to claim her revenge.

“There will be no wedding today,” she told the crowd. “It seems Alex is not who I thought he was.”

Evidently, Alex went to hold her hands, that’s when Casey moved her blossoms to uncover she had her cell with her.

That was the moment she began reading out each of the messages she had received.

“With each word, more color left Alex’s face.”

I let my weeping eyes rise and meet his, and he had not one thing to say. He stalked out of the church with his best man trailing behind him. His family looked on, horrified.”

Casey agrees it was exactly a comfortable scene for the wedding party and guests.

We can only imagine how much effort it took to follow through with her plan, she did confirm she had “one hell of a party” that night.

I you would have done the same as Casey then please SHARE this story with others on Facebook.

Family face yet another fatality after they bury their two-year-old son.

in Uncategorized

When a disaster hits a family once, you generally never want to experience another like it. However if it strikes twice, it can have a devastating effect.

The Allen family recently suffered the loss of their beloved son Brody to cancer.

Brody who was only two years at the time and had developed tumours which continued to grow in his brain.

After his parents were informed  that Brody would not last the remainder of the year they decided to do something memorable.

In an attempt to make sure every  moment with Brody was precious full of happiness and love.

The Allen family have been  overwhelmed by the support from their local community in the small town of Colerain Township, Ohio.

Brody the youngest of the family has two other siblings, McKenzie and their eldest brother Andrew.

Following his journey Brody’s fight with cancer was published all over social media where millions of Americans were touched by his story.

His parents Shilo and Todd decided they would host Christmas in September with their local community in an effort to make his last month a joyful.

The local news reported how Brody was so happy and that “It was amazing. Not just for him but for everybody.”

Little Brody sadly passed away the following month as announced by his dad Todd on Facebook:

Good morning. It is with the deepest sadness I want tell you that Brody has lost his fight. This morning at 6 am Brody passed quietly, and peacefully in the arms of his mother Shilo. He did not suffer. He was surrounded by his family and I have no doubt many angel’s. While our sadness is immeasurable and we will miss his smiling beautiful soul, we are also comforted in knowing that today our son has touched the face of God.

Today heaven welcomed home our little super hero.

Fly high little man.. Until we see you again. We love you.”

Another Tragedy

I come to you all in need of urgent help. Andrew’s condition is very critical. He has a very serious life-threatening traumatic brain injury, damage to his kidneys, a small laceration to his spleen, a broken shoulder blade, and a dislocated/broken collar bone.
Our grief and pain are simply indescribable right now.

Please, if you’re inclined, pray for Andrew’s healing and recovery. I don’t care what faith, language, religion or perspective in life you come from.

Romaine lettuce warning: 32 people in 11 states ill from E.Coli outbreak

in Uncategorized

Americans should refrain from eating any romaine lettuce the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warned on Tuesday.

The following alert comes just two days before Thanksgiving as following a new E. coli outbreak .

The CC also state that consumers should throw out any romaine lettuce, and retailers and restaurants should not sell or serve it.

At least 32 people in 11 states have become sick from the same strain of E. coli in the outbreak.

The illnesses began in October and at least 13 people have hospitalised since including one with a kind of kidney failure, according to the CDC said.

Thankfully no fatalities have been reported, and no recalls have been issued.

U.S. consumers should avoid all types of romaine lettuce including salad mixes if they are unsure whether it includes romaine, according to the CDC.

The agency also asks Americans to clean refrigerators where the lettuce was being stored.

In a statement the CC said, ”Consumers who have any type of romaine lettuce in their home should not eat it and should throw it away, even if some of it was eaten and no one has gotten sick.”

No common source of the contaminated lettuce has been identified, the CDC said, but federal health officials have begun investigating.

According to the CDC, the strain of E. coli had “same DNA fingerprint” as an outbreak tied to leafy greens in the United States and romaine in Canada late last year.

The outbreak caused a fatality for one person and infected 25 in 15 states.

The outbreak however is not related to an E. coli outbreak linked to romaine lettuce from earlier this year – which took five people’s lives and sickened 210 in 36 states – the CDC said.

“This isn’t the first romaine outbreak we have seen in the recent past, and we will continue to take steps to identify the root causes of these events and take action to prevent future outbreaks,” U.S. Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said.

Additionally, 18 people in the Canadian provinces of Ontario and Quebec have also been sickened by the same E. coli strain.

In California ten cases have been reported which is the state with the highest number of sick people.

Seven were identified in Michigan. Other states that reported cases are Connecticut, Illinois, Massachusetts, Maryland, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio and Wisconsin.

“Ill people reported eating different types of romaine lettuce in several restaurants and at home,” health officials said.

People will get sick an average of three to four days after eating the contaminated lettuce, the agency added.

Symptoms include “severe stomach cramps, diarrhea (often bloody), and vomiting,” among others, but most people who have fallen ill get better within a week, according to the CDC.

Up to 10 percent of patients can develop hemolytic uremic syndrome, though, the CDC said. The “potentially life-threatening complication” can lead to kidney failure.

Health experts issue warning after Infants suffer poisoning from honey-filled pacifiers.

in Uncategorized

After several infants were hospitalised and treated for botulism The U.S Food and Drugs Administration warns against using honey filled pacifiers.

Although each of the products used were purchased in Mexico,  the FDA have warned that they are easily available to purchase online.

The government agency requested all retailers to crease selling the products, and explained that honey is not suitable for children younger than 12 months old.

Honey might contain bacteria that produce the toxin in the intestine of infants that consume it, according to health officials.

Botulism is a serious illness which is caused by a toxin that attacks the body’s nerves.

The toxin can cause difficulty breathing, paralysis, and even death.

Health Canada’s warning.

On Health Canada’s website they also warn that giving honey to children under he age of one can lead to infant botulis.

They also strongly advise against adding it to pacifiers, formula, milk or even water.

It explains that infant botulism is a “rare but serious form of food poisoning,” in Canada, honey is the only food that has been linked to the illness.

Symptoms of infant botulism can vary from constipation, weak cries, weak muscles, trouble breathing and difficulty swallowing. In certain extreme cases, it can be life-threatening.

Infant botulism is caused by Clostridium botulinum spores, which are found in honey.

When an infant ingests honey, bacteria from these spores can grow and produce toxins that could lead to paralysis,” Health Canada’s website explains.

By the time children are 12 months old, children can have honey because they’ve developed bacteria in their intestines to protect them.

In recent years Texas has reported seven to eight cases of infant botulism annually. Ten confirmed, or suspected, cases have been reported in 2018.

Parents should also avoid pacifiers containing any other food substance, because they could also pose a risk of botulism, DSHS said.

This Year’s John Lewis Christmas Advert Stars Elton John

in Uncategorized

Once the festive season rolls around there is always anticipation around the John Lewis Christmas Advert.. and it has finally arrived.

Every year the retailer brings its A-game with something to tug at our festive heart strings.

The legend ropes in Elton John just when you think there’s no way he could do any better.

John Lewis’s 2018 Christmas ad features the singer’s ‘Your Song’, which brings viewers through his glittering career, centring on Sir Reginald’s noteworthy gift of all: his piano.

A journey from the present moment backwards through Elton’s defining career moments takes us all the way back his grandmother gifting him the piano as a 4-year-old boy.

Imagine a four-year-old Elton racing down the stairs on Christmas morning, ripping open a grand piano and basting out a heartwarming tune.

That boy would become one of the greatest musicians of all time after receiving a gift that would bring joy to the rest of the world.

The singer said in a statement: “The John Lewis Christmas campaign has so many warm memories for me and my family.

“It’s been a lovely opportunity for me to reflect on my life in music and the incredible journey I have been on, and how first playing my grandmother’s piano marks the moment when music came into my life.

“The ad is absolutely fantastic and I’ve truly loved every minute of being a part of it.”

Having donated his £5 million fee to his charity, the Elton John Charitable Trust, Elton’s husband David Furnish admits that making the ad was a very emotional experience for the star.

He said: “I think Elton has enjoyed the process of making this tremendously.

“I think, you know, emotionally he is thinking about the journey he’s been on as an artist, and that moment, you know, when music came into his life at a very young age when he was encouraged by his mother and his grandmother with his piano.

The John Lewis Christmas campaign is an iconic part of Christmas now and has had so many warm memories and associations for us, with all of our Christmases, so to be asked to be part of that was a huge honour.

Seeing the accuracy, and the work that has been put into to creating everything, the attention to detail is fantastic, so it is very exciting to see, it is like taking a step back in time.”

It’s also the first time since the 1950s that pianos have been out on the shop floor at John Lewis, which is another moving touch – Christmas is all about nostalgia, after all.

Customer Director Craig Inglis said: “The ad tells the story of why Elton’s piano was more than just a gift and we hope to remind customers of that special moment when they’ve given a gift at Christmas time that they know will be treasured forever.”

 A review of his career, before he’s expected to appear on one final world tour in 2019 – and before Rocketman which documents Elton’s life, hits cinemas next summer.

Take a look at the advert in the video clip below:

93-Yr-Old Veteran Sleeps In Car After Fleeing Wildfire, Then Couple Says ‘You’re Coming With Us’

in Uncategorized

So many families have been left stranded and helpless following the California wildfires.

93 year old World War II veteran Lee Brundige, is still none the wiser if his house is intact after his hometown in Paradise, California, was scorched by the Camp Fire.

Lee,lives alone so fled his home making it to a parking lot close by town.

There he also met other evacuees — along with a thoughtful woman who was handing out hamburgers to people.

Tracy Grant offered Lee some food,however he decided not to accept.

Instead he instructed her to save it for someone else who could do with it more.

As the air quality in the parking lot got worse, the sheriff’s deputies instructed people to leave; while the area began filling with smoke.

Tracy checked with Lee if he had somewhere else to go. At that point he was essentially homeless but claimed he could always just sleep in his car.

Tracy couldn’t bear the thought of leaving him to fend for himself, or even be taken advantage of by a stranger.

So Tracy asked Lee if he would like to her home to stay with her, her boyfriend Josh Fox.

Lee turned down her offer again but Tracy persisted as she didn’t want to give up.

A remarkable act of kindness followed— in the middle of  such disaster that’s touching hearts all over the country.

8 Dangerous Products Parents Should Reconsider Before Buying

in Uncategorized

Bringing up youngsters can be the most happy time in our lives. We have a responsibility to keep them protected.

Many consumer items have been proven to increase the rate of child injuries, and tragically, fatalities.

As with life in general, if proper care is taken, possible risks can be reduced.

To help raise awareness in order to keep our children safe, we have gathered a list of products that require an extra caution.

1. Laundry detergent pods

Laundry detergent pods, can cause poisoning and burns to the mouth, throat, and stomach if swallowed.

Alternatively, if the liquid leaks or is squeezed from the pod, it can cause severe skin and eye irritation and burns.

It can also cause damage to the lungs if your child happens to breathe it in.

Should you suspect your child has ingested or a detergent pod, call poison control for advice.

2. Balloons and other small objects

Balloons can brighten up a party, but they actually cause more fatalities than any other toy.

Balloons, particularly those made of latex, conform to the shape of the narrow windpipe in children, which can lead to choking.

Other small objects such as batteries, magnets, marbles, and bottle-caps, can also lead to occlusions of the windpipe.

If your child is choking, give them several firm blows to their upper back while they are in a forward position, call an ambulance, and then follow these steps.

3. Pet food

Pet food isn’t generally poisonous to humans, however, there have been a number of cases where children become sick after ingesting dry cat or dog food.

The biggest danger comes from dry food pellets for larger dogs, which can be a choking hazard for small inquisitive children

Again, if your child is choking, give them several firm blows to their upper back while they are in a forward position, or call for help.

4. Toys with propellers

With the rising popularity of small, hand-operated drones comes the increased risk of injury, as this child found out when his eye was cut by a drone propeller.

With proper safety precautions, these can indeed be fun toys to play with. Follow these drone safety tips to minimise the risk of harm.

5. Trampolines

Trampolines can be a fun addition to the family backyard, but naturally, they don’t come without risks.

According to the EU injury database, approximately 51,000 children aged 0-14 require an emergency department visit each year due to injuries from using a trampoline.

That number is nearer to 250,000 in the  United States.

Follow  trampoline safety tips to help keep your children safe.

6. Toy chests

 If your child’s toys are kept in a chest with a heavy lid, it might be better to remove the lid or use open storage boxes.

Heavy lids pose an injury risk if the toddler were to reach into the chest and the open lid wasn’t secured.

There has also been cases of suffocation after a child has become trapped within the box.

Fortunately, most modern toy chests have added safety elements to help prevent injury.

Open boxes and play areas can be a much safer option.

7. Certain houseplants

Houseplants can be aesthetically pleasing for your home and garden, but some can be quite toxic and even lethal if eaten.

Philodendron, oleander, and peace lilies are just 3 common examples. Check online for a list of toxic and non-toxic household plants.

If you feel your child has ingested anything unusual then call for help.

8. Candy and costumes

All candy should be checked, to see if it could be a potential choking hazard depending on the age of your child.

Sour hard candies like Warheads have also been reported to have caused burns and erosions to the child’s mouth so proceed with caution or avoid them altogether.

Costumes are a huge part of Halloween and other special occasions, as kids of all ages love to dress up.

Parents should consider incidents of costumes catching fire due to the types of materials they’re made of.

Are you aware of any other potentially hazardous things? Please Share this post with others on Facebook to let the rest of the world know.

A Farm Kid Writes Home After Joining The Marines. This Is Priceless!

in Uncategorized

Dear Ma and Pa:

I am well. Hope you are. Tell Brother Walt and Brother Elmer the Marine Corps beats working for old man Minch by a mile. Tell them to join up quick before all of the places are filled.
I was restless at first because you get to stay in bed till nearly 6 a.m. But I am getting so I like to sleep late.

Tell Walt and Elmer all you do before breakfast is smooth your cot, and shine some things. No hogs to slop, feed to pitch, mash to mix, wood to split, fire to lay. Practically nothing.

Men got to shave but it is not so bad, there’s warm water. Breakfast is strong on trimmings like fruit juice, cereal, eggs, bacon, etc., but kind of weak on chops, potatoes, ham, steak, fried eggplant, pie and other regular food, but tell Walt and Elmer you can always sit by the two city boys that live on coffee. Their food, plus yours, holds you until noon when you get fed again. It’s no wonder these city boys can’t walk much.

We go on “route marches,” which the platoon sergeant says are long walks to harden us. If he thinks so, it’s not my place to tell him different. A route march is about as far as to our mailbox at home. Then the city guys get sore feet and we all ride back in trucks.

The Sergeant is like a school teacher. He nags a lot. The Captain is like the school board. Majors and Colonels just ride around and frown. They don’t bother you none.
This next will kill Walt and Elmer with laughter. I keep getting medals for shooting. I don’t know why. The bulls-eye is near as big as a chipmunk head and don’t move, and it ain’t shooting at you like the Higgett boys at home. All you got to do is lie there all comfortable and hit it.

You don’t even load your own cartridges. They come in boxes.
Then we have what they call hand-to-hand combat training. You get to wrestle with them city boys. I have to be real careful though, they break real easy. It ain’t like fighting with that ol’ bull at home. I’m about the best they got in this except for that Tug Jordan from over in Silver Lake . I only beat him once. He joined up the same time as me, but I’m only 5’6″ and 130 pounds and he’s 6’8″ and near 300 pounds dry.

Be sure to tell Walt and Elmer to hurry and join before other fellers get onto this setup and come stampeding in.
Your loving daughter,


Father pays for stepdaughter’s wedding, then the bride reveals something that breaks his heart

in Uncategorized

In the event that you live with an partner who is in charge of influencing you to feel terrible about yourself — they don’t have a place in your life.

However, now and then the dread of forlornness is more prominent than the quest for joy and we remain in a relationship for a really long time. Regardless of the possibility that it’s influencing us to feel terrible.

To discover fearlessness to split far from a damaging relationship is not generally simple, but rather the man in the story beneath was pushed to the point where it in the long run ended up noticeably unsustainable.

He wrote on his circumstance on a Reddit discussion and soon got help from a large number of outsiders who had read his post.

My step-daughter will be getting married on August 3rd. The wedding planning has consumed most of her and her mother’s life (I say her mother because we aren’t married, though we’ve lived together for 10 years) for the past six months.

My step-daughter graduated last December from University. I paid for her to go to college, though it was a state school, it still ran $40K. She does not have a job and has been living with us for the duration of her college career and since her graduation. I also bought her a car to get back and forth from school when she finished high school.

From time to time her deadbeat father would pop into her life and she would fawn all over him. Although he has not contributed a cent to her education or paid any child support, though that is my girlfriend’s fault as c.s. was not part of the settlement, she still loves him and wants him in her life. He stays long enough to break her heart by skipping town and breaking some promise that he made her.

The wedding venue holds 250 people max. I gave them a list of 20 people that I wanted invited, you know, since I was paying for everything. They told me that was no problem and they’d take care of it. So I let these people know they’d be getting an invite and they should save the date. Saturday, I saw one of my friends on this list at the golf course and asked if he was coming. He told me that he wasn’t invited. He told me that he got an announcement, but not an invitation. He had it in his back seat (along with probably six months of mail) and showed it to me. Sure enough, it was just an announcement, and my name was nowhere on it. It had her dad’s name and her mom’s name and not mine.

This led to a pretty big fight with my GF, as I found out that NONE of my list of twenty “made the cut” for the final guest list because “250 people is very tight.” I was pissed, but not a hell of a lot I could do because the important people in my life had already been offended. My GF said “if some people didn’t rsvp yes, I might be able to get a couple people in.” But that is an ultimate slap in the face in my opinion. So, I was boiling on Saturday.

Yesterday, we had a Sunday dinner with the future in-law’s family and us and a surprise guest, the “Real Dad.” At this little dinner my step-daughter announced that her “Real Dad” was going to be able to make it to her wedding and that now he’d be able to give her away. This was greeted with a chorus of “Oh how great” and “How wonderful”s.

I don’t think I have ever felt so angry and so disrespected. I was shaking. I took a few seconds to gather my composure, because I honestly wasn’t sure if I would cry or start throwing punches or both. Once I was sure I’d be able to speak I got up from my chair and said I’d like to make a toast. I can’t remember exactly what I said but the gist of it was this:

“I’d like to make a toast.” The sound of spoons against glasses ring in my years. “It has been my great pleasure to be a part of this family for the past ten years.” Awe, how sweet. “At this point in my life I feel I owe a debt of gratitude to bride and groom, because they have opened my eyes to something very important.” Confident smiles exchanged. “They have showed me that my position in this family is not what I once thought it was.” And now a glimmer of confusion and shock begins to spread on the faces in the room. “Though I once thought of myself as the patriarch or godfather of the family, commanding great respect and sought out for help in times of need, it seems instead that I hold the position of an ATM, good for a stream of money, but not much else. As I have been replaced as host, both on the invitations and in the ceremony, I am resigning my financial duties as host to my successor, Real Dad. So cheers to the happy couple and the path they have chosen.” I finished my drink. “You all can let yourselves out.”

Is this selfish? I’m supposed to shell out 40 — 50 grand for a wedding that I can’t invite anyone to? That I am not a part of? I’m so done with this crap. I’m done with my step-daughter, I’m done with my GF. I transferred the money out of our joint account last night. (she has not had a job since she moved in with me) This morning I called all the vendors I had written checks to for deposits to refund my money. At present it looks like I’ll lose around 1500, for the venue, but the other vendors have been great about refunding.
TLDR: You want your “REAL DAD” to be on the invitation, to give you away and to sit at the head table, fine, your “REAL DAD” can pay for everything too.

EDIT: June 9th 1:15 am. Girlfriend and Bride are now moved out. They are moving in with the groom. It was very hard not to be petty with some of the “belongings” they took with them, but it’s done and I switched out the locks and now it’s time for a brew. I can’t believe how popular this story got, but I feel good to be given support by so many. If I find out what happens with the wedding, I will let you know, but I can’t guarantee that I will put in the effort to find out. From what I’ve heard they are trying to “scale things back” and get his parents to help out. GF burned bridges when I found out she tried to write herself a check on our joint account the day after the unpleasantness. By then I had already moved money, so I guess I’m a bigger ass than her, but I could feel it coming. That’s all. Thanks.”

If you are not being treated right in your relationship then the chances are that is not going to change and its best to get out of that situation now. Your partner is not going to change overnight.
