  • Drinking Distilled Water While Pregnant or Breastfeeding A healthy diet is an important part of a healthy lifestyle at any time, but especially vital if you're pregnant or planning a pregnancy. Healthy eating keeps you feeling good and gives your baby the essential nutrients they need in the uterus. Pregnancy nutrition is essential for the health and wellness of your baby and fluid intake is an important part of healthy pregnancy nutrition. Women can take in enough fluids by drinking several glasses of water each day, in addition to the fluids in juices and soups. Can I Drink Distilled Water While Breastfeeding? According to the Institute of Medicine, the recommended water intake is 12 fluid ounces a day (12 glasses) during pregnancy. This is 50% more water compared to your water intake when not pregnant , it is recommended that more water should be consumed if you spend significant time in high heat or exercising. Pregnant women require essential minerals and vitamins, both for themselves and for the babies. Under this situation, drinking tap water or mineral water is essential for individual mothers because it contains higher essential minerals. However, mothers should have control over what they eat and drink. Distilled water is not recommended for pregnant women because of its low mineral content and poor thirst-quenching capacity. Although drinking distilled water  does not affect the vitamins digested by a pregnant women, essential minerals may be reduced in numbers in the presence of carbon. Introducing distilled water into the intestine according to some studies can cause abnormal changes in epithelial cells possibly due to osmotic shock. Drinking distilled water was also found to increase the risk of skeletal ossification in fetuses, decreased serum potassium concentration, and increased the elimination of sodium, potassium, and chloride calcium and magnesium ions from the body. When can a Pregnant Woman Drink Distilled Water Before you drink distilled water while pregnant you should receive a recommendation from your doctor or nutritionist. For some reason they may allow if the content of lead, mercury, fluoride, arsenic, and nitrates in your body reach their maximum level. How do I Know when the Level of lead, mercury, fluoride, arsenic, and nitrates in my body has reach their maximum level while pregnant When peak concentrations of these minerals have been reached, consuming distilled water can be done to remove the material excesses.There are good indicators to show you the these minerals have reached their maximum permissible limits these include: -Inflammation on feet and legs - Constipation - Breathing difficulties and sleeping disorders However, it is often advised that you talk to your doctor before making any major changes to your diet during pregnancy. Can I Drink Distilled Water While Breastfeeding? Distilled water is not recommended during breastfeeding largely due to its aggressive nature . Your breast milk is made up of about 90 percent water and the most common minerals found in purified water (calcium, sodium,potassium, copper manganese, iron and magnesium) are very vital for the growing child and a breast feeding mother during this period. During breastfeeding your body can be more sensitive to dehydration as such it is important to drink enough water and stay healthy during this phase. The practice of forcing babies to drink distilled water with formula is also very unhealthy and could potentially deprive the child of vital nutrients. Potassium one of the common minerals found in water, works with sodium to control the body's water balance, which helps maintain healthy blood pressure.  Potassium also helps with muscle function and heart rhythm and, in later years, may reduce the risk of kidney stones and osteoporosis.

  • Many Methylene chloride Uses Pose Health Risks- US EPA Nearly all uses of methylene chloride examined by the US Environmental Protection Agency pose “unreasonable” health risks to workers and consumers, the agency concludes in a final assessment released on June 19. The agency now has 1 year to propose actions to mitigate the risks and 2 years to finalize those actions, which could include banning or restricting certain uses of the chemical. Methylene chloride is commonly used as a solvent and to manufacture other chemicals. It is found in many products, including paint and coating removers, sealants, adhesives, lubricants, and degreasers. The EPA considers methylene chloride a likely human carcinogen. The chemical also causes acute effects on the central nervous system, including loss of consciousness and in some cases, death. Both the chemical industry and environmental groups are disappointed in the EPA’s final methylene chloride assessment. Methylene chloride has been widely used since the 1940s, with “no evidence of risk to workers or other exposed individuals” when workplace standards and other regulations are followed, says Faye Graul, executive director of the Halogenated Solvents Industry Alliance, which represents manufacturers of chlorinated solvents. The EPA relied on outdated exposure data, ignoring public comments and advice from its chemical advisory committee, Graul says. “EPA also failed to adapt its cancer risk assessment methodology to reflect scientific advances over the past 40 years.”Environmental groups claim that the risks of methylene chloride to workers are even greater than the EPA found because the agency assumed that all workers will wear appropriate personal protective equipment. In early 2017, during the final days of the Obama administration, the EPA proposed to protect workers by banning the use of methylene chloride in commercial paint removers. Last year, the agency finalized the ban on methylene chloride paint removers sold to consumers, but it stopped short of banning use of the chemical in commercial paint removers. “EPA should take immediate action on the danger it has once again recognized in this risk evaluation and finish the job to protect workers,” Liz Hitchcock, director of Safer Chemicals Healthy Families, a coalition of environmental and public health advocacy organizations, says in a statement. “The agency must immediately finalize its proposed ban on commercial use of these products. To wait any longer to protect workers from these dangerous products when EPA has the ability to ban them now is unconscionable and will result in more preventable deaths.” The methylene chloride evaluation is the first that the EPA has completed under 2016 revisions to the Toxic Substances Control Act. The agency is expected to complete nine more assessments by the end of the year for other chemicals on the market.

  • There are different forms of heroin and two of the biggest distinctions between them is how they look and what they contain. For example, black tar heroin is something often talked about, so people may wonder what does black tar heroin look like and smell like. What is Black Tar Heroin? Black tar heroin is a free base form of heroin that is sticky like tar or hard like coal. Its dark color is the result of crude processing methods that leave behind impurities. Despite its name, black tar heroin can also be dark orange or dark brown in appearance. It is generally less expensive than other forms of heroin. Black tar heroin is impure morphine diacetate. Other forms of heroin require additional steps of purification post acetylation. With black tar the product's processing stops immediately after acetylation. Its unique consistency however is due to acetylation without a reflux apparatus. As in homebake heroin in Australia and New Zealand the crude acetylation results in a gooey mass. Black tar as a type holds a variable admixture morphine derivatives predominantly 6-MAM (6-monoacetylmorphine), which is another result of crude acetylation. The lack of proper reflux during acetylation fails to remove much of the moisture retained in the acetylating agent, glacial acetic acid. Black tar heroin is often produced in Latin America, and is most commonly found in the western and southern parts of the United States, while also being occasionally found in Western Africa. It has a varying consistency depending on manufacturing methods, cutting agents, and moisture levels, from tarry goo in unrefined form to a uniform, light-brown powder when further processed and cut with lactose. Composition of Black Tar Heroin Pure morphine and heroin are both fine powders. Tar's unique appearance and texture is due to its acetylation without benefit of the usual reflux apparatus. The assumption that tar has less adulterants and diluents is a misconception. The most common adulterant is lactose, which is added to tar via dissolving of both substances in a liquid medium, reheating and filtering, and then recrystallizing. This process is very simple and can be accomplished in any kitchen with no level of expertise needed. The price per kilogram of black tar heroin has increased from one-tenth that of South American powder heroin in the mid-1990s to between one-half and three-quarters in 2003 due to increased distributional acumen combined with increased demand in black tar's traditional realm of distribution. Black tar heroin distribution has steadily risen in recent years, while that of U.S. East Coast powder varieties has dropped; heroin production in Colombia has decreased as U.S.-funded efforts to eradicate Colombian poppy fields continue. Health effects Black tar heroin is a dangerous type of heroin. Heroin is a potent, highly addictive and often deadly opioid that’s derived from morphine, which comes from poppy plants. Heroin comes in different forms including white and brown powders, and then black tar heroin as well. Black tar heroin gets its name from its appearance, which resembles black tar in color and consistency. It’s unique from other forms of heroin, which are initially sold as a powder, and it’s the only type of heroin that comes in solid form. Certain regions in the world are known for the production of black tar heroin. In the United States, the majority of black tar heroin comes from Mexico. In the past, much of the heroin from south of the United States’ border was brown heroin. Brown heroin is considered very impure and low quality, but as Afghan drug producers began importing more high-quality heroin into the United States, Mexico created black tar heroin to compete. Even though black tar heroin is purer than brown heroin, it’s still only 25 to 30 percent pure, and it’s much less pure than white heroin powder in most cases. The lower quality translates to lower prices, which is one of the biggest areas of appeal for many buyers. Black Tar Heroin Human Health Effects When someone uses black tar heroin, it’s a very powerful experience. That power, in addition to its low price, is another part of the allure of this type of heroin. It’s less refined than purer forms of heroin, so it’s cheaper to make and therefore cheaper to buy. However, the low price does not mean that its effects are less dangerous. Black tar heroin effects can include relaxation, euphoria, and feeling very drowsy or nodding off. As with other forms of the drug, with black tar heroin users can feel nauseous, impaired, and like they lack coordination and concentration. Other black tar heroin effects include constipation, itching, diarrhea and dry mouth. One of the most detrimental black tar heroin effects, aside from overdosing, is the risk of dependence and addiction. These risks are just as high with black tar heroin as with other types of heroin. Black tar heroin is also dangerous due to its unknown content. Black tar heroin often contains additives and substances that can cause infections and health problems on their own. When someone uses black tar heroin intravenously, they’re at a higher risk of getting an infection at the site where they inject it. Common infections include staph infections, necrotizing fasciitis and cellulitis. There’s also a higher risk of damage to the veins in people who inject black tar heroin, and it can lead to a collapsed vein. What Does Black Tar Heroin Look Like? If you wonder what black tar heroin looks like, or you’re searching for black tar heroin pictures, you’ll discover that it looks much like the name describes. Black tar heroin looks like sticky tar, or it can be hard and look more like coal. The color and consistency of black tar heroin are like that because of the processing methods that leave impurities in it. In some cases, black tar heroin may also look dark orange or dark brown. Black Tar Heroin Smell The smell of heroin can be one of its defining characteristics, as people often say it has a strong vinegar-like smell. In many cases, black tar heroin smells more strongly of vinegar and this is because of the chemical processes that are used to make it. Higher-quality heroin that’s purer tends to have been washed after it’s synthesized, so it may have minimal odor. Black tar heroin, since it is less pure and may have additives, will usually have a stronger smell. Depending on what it’s mixed with, the black tar heroin smell may differ from batch to batch slightly, but regardless of what the exact smell seems like, it will still be more pungent than purer heroin.
