Electronic Waste Dump of the World: Guiyu, China

Ever wonder where those old used computers end up? How about all those old CRT monitors, cell phones, keyboards, and PDAs? We’re told when we drop off our old electronics for recycling that they will be properly disposed of; in some cases we pay recyclers to ensure our old electronics are disposed of in the correct way.

Chigago Based Artist Transforms Scrap into Contemporary Art

Artist Mary Ellen Croteau made this amazing self-portrait out of recycled plastic bottle caps. Notice how she used sets of nested plastic bottle caps to achieve a much deeper color palette than otherwise possible.

How To Green Clean The Grout In Your Bathroom

Let’s face it. Grout is nobody’s friend. It’s usually bright white, which just means Every. Little. Blemish. Shows. It’s porous, so stains soak in and stick around. And it’s pretty skinny, making it all the more difficult to get to. But here we have it: a little help to make your least favorite chore a little more bearable.

Nestlé Wants to Build a Food Replicator, Calling It “Iron Man” and Not Some Star Trek Joke Why Exactly?

“Imagine a machine that can mix nutrients and provide you with the perfect food-like substance for your needs. Now stop it. That’s what’s Nestlé is imagining, so you can start imagining something else — like a Star Trek related name instead of the “Iron Man” which is what Nestle wants to call this thing.”

Ohh…I miss those times when food was just food…

Pulled Pork Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Pulled pork is delicious, and there’s nothing wrong with just eating it straight off the plate (or straight out of the oven!). But there’s a reason why pulled pork sandwiches are so popular: sometimes, it’s also nice to have your pork with a starchy, slightly sweet delivery vehicle to contrast with the meat. And who doesn’t love barbecue sauce?

4 Reasons Why You Don’t Need this Metal in Your Life

Believe it or not, aluminum is actually the most vastly distributed metal on Earth. It finds its uses in how we handle our cookware, drinking water, and kitchen supplies, and even makes its way into our baking sodas, vanilla powders, aspirins, deodorants/antiperspirants, cake mixes, and a number of other products as well; basically, it’s all over the place.

Amazing Health Benefits of Probiotics

You have likely heard the term “probiotics” being tossed around lately, but you may still be wondering, “Are they really as good as what people say?” When research uncovers any new form of treatment, whether it be medicine or even just nutritional supplements, it takes time to discern whether it really is a good idea to jump on the “health bandwagon” or not. We assure you that probiotics are here to stay and are more than just a fad or popular trend. Probiotics represent the strains of good bacteria in your gut that help treat and prevent a number of different conditions including irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s disease, eczema, and even urinary tract infections. Probiotics are not only a natural cure for many health conditions, but these microorganisms are also an important part of a daily health regimen.

How Sugar Affects The Brain

When you eat something loaded with sugar, your taste buds, your gut and your brain all take notice. This activation of your reward system is not unlike how bodies process addictive substances such as alcohol or nicotine — an overload of sugar spikes dopamine levels and leaves you craving more.

12 easy ways to remove acid build-up from your body, alkalize your pH and beat disease

Most of us over the age of five were brought up to believe life is very complicated and our bodies are a jumble of parts, each with a different name and a corresponding ailment; dozens of diets to overcome the effects of highly complex micro-crap called food; and television punctuated with an entire industry of false promises and dark demons hawking medicines for lesions we didn’t even know we had.
