DO'S AND DON'TS.
Getting a drink of water? -- buy a bottle? Waste your money? It's often filtered tap water. You're cluttering up an already overfull garbage dump -- plastic bottles take years to dissolve.
Heading out for a walk? -- shouldn't you worry about what's in the air today? Is the sky gray from pollutants? If it's sunny -- what about the UV index, got the right SPF cream for your arms, and face?
Want to get a tan? -- NO, not while you're walking, never at the beach --
don't forget, tanning in one of those salons is worse than smoking a pack of cigarettes.
Planning to make a phone call? -- remember, cell phones are ... well, maybe, quite possibly, they're causing cancer.
Going to a meeting? -- traveling in the germ filled subway? Is it better to take a taxi that's eating gas, filling the air with deadly, global warming emissions?
What about a cup of coffee? It reduces the risk of colon cancer, diabetes, Parkinson's, gallstones. Hey, coffee is bad for sleep, nerves -- it can even cause rheumatoid arthritis.
Hang around the house? Well, there's a serious worry about Radon. You can't smell it, but it could be there -- it's a killer -- shouldn't you get a radon checking kit and test the place?
Have a snack, eat something? -- not fruit, not veggies that have been sprayed with pesticides -- not meat that's been exposed to antibiotics or growth hormones! And bearing in mind that there's a water shortage, wash all fruit and vegetables thoroughly -- well, reasonably thoroughly -- but don't waste water -- try to use water sparingly.
And don't use plastic cups, plates, or utensils -- they're loaded with toxic BPA (Bisphenol A). As are canned goods, beverage cans, fresh food in plastic wrappings, pet foods, infant formula, as well as copy paper, receipts, labels, airline tickets and film and theater tickets.
If your place is cold, for goodness sake, don't use the oven. Remember, if you use an Electric heater, (or an air conditioner next summer) -- you'll be overloading the electric grid!
Do some work on the computer? Watch TV? They're dangerous, not good for the eyes or the brain. Remember -- sit back -- 18 inches from the monitor, 2.5. feet from the TV -- yes, it'll be brain-washing you every few minutes with ads selling you pills, pills pills.
Listen to music? Not too loud -- it's already probably ruined your ears.
Oh well ... what the hell ...
Be glad you know what's bad ...
So ... go!
Have a ball. and do it all !
