Do flu shots still contain mercury?

Some large, multi-use containers of flu vaccine contain a trace amount of ethyl mercury, a harmless preservative.

The poisonous forms of mercury are methyl mercury, pure mercury, or mercury vapour.

This is analogous to chlorine, a most toxic gas, and very harmful as hydrochloric acid, yet we eat it every day as common salt, sodium chloride.

If you are still concerned ask for your flu shot to be given from a single use vial, which contains no preservative.

Water softener salt bridging

One of the most frequent problems with water softening systems is salt bridging in the salt/brine tank. There are several reasons for salt bridging to occur. This generally occurs when pellet type salts or potassium chloride is used to regenerate the water softening system. Pellet type salts contain binding agents that in turn give the salt a very starchy consistency when wet. As water evaporates in the brine tank the pellet salts partially dissolve, bind together and form a "salt bridge" in the tank. Potassium chloride (Kcl) acts in the same way. Excess water in the salt tank, with high salt levels, can also cause salt bridging. Improper softener brining and lack of proper brine refill will cause bridging to occur as well.

What is the best way to alleviate these problems?

1. When using pellet type salts or potassium chloride only keep the salt tank about 1/2 full. This prevents too much compaction of the salts and helps to prevent bridging. When using potassium chloride get the salt tank off the floor on a wooden platform to prevent wicking of moisture from concrete floors.

2. Use a high grade of salt. Most water treatment dealers use either
DuraCube or HardiCube water softener salts produced by Cargill Corp.
Cargill has a link to find dealers in your area.

Solar Salt is another option as the crystal structure is very hard and virtually impossible to bridge. This is also available from many Cargill salt dealers and in stores.

3. Let the salt tank run down to 80-100lbs of salt or potassium a couple times per year to help prevent buildup of dissolved salts in brine tank.

4. Yearly maintenance of the water treatment system helps also. Restrictions in the brining system (injector/eductor assembly) caused by sediment and oxidized iron buildup cause improper brining and too much water in salt tank during refill. Have this assembly cleaned yearly. Have the water tested to see if the water chemistry or usage have changed and adjustments to the system are necessary.

5. Avoid using rock salts to prevent buildup of sediment in brine tank (which causes service problems).

Practice these tips and you will have fewer water softener problems and more consistent quality softened water.

I wish you good water!

Who shall take Potassium chloride?

Potassium Chloride (KCl) is used as a No Sodium Salt alternative to regular Salt which is Sodium Chloride (NaCl). The people who take it are people who want to reduce their sodium intake, commonly people with high blood pressure. If you are planning to use it for cooking be sure to reduce the amount you use and to taste as you apply it because KCl actually tastes saltier than NaCl.

What is Indigestion and Acidity and How it is Caused?

Acidity is nothing but excess secretion of gastric acid which is formed in our stomach to help us digest food. Secreted by special cells that line our stomach, this acid consists of hydrochloric acid, sodium chloride and potassium chloride. The main role of the gastric acid is to activate the various digestive enzymes in our stomach which help in breaking down the amino acids present in food particles.

During an acid reflux, the gastric acid comes up through the food pipe due to over-production or improper closing of the 'lower esophageal sphincter' muscle. The LES works like a valve between our food pipe and stomach, preventing food that has passed from coming back up. When acidity occur, the LES does not work as it should and allows acid to enter the esophagus, thus causing mild to severe irritation and chest pain.

Is menudo bad for you?

this soup isn't very high in nutrients, although it does contain 4 to 5 percent of the daily value for iron, vitamin A, potassium and phosphorus in each serving. You need iron for forming red blood cells, vitamin A for healthy vision, potassium for counteracting the blood-pressure raising effect of sodium and phosphorus for forming strong bones. The only vitamin or mineral typically found in large amounts in menudo is sodium, which you want to limit in your diet. Each 1-cup serving of menudo contains 971 milligrams, or 40 percent of the DV for sodium.

After bonding atoms we are ask to name the resulting compounds in its common name and as well as its chemical name. so my question is, what is the difference between common names and chemical names? please...

Common name is the name what people call it, it usually gives you no idea as to what the chemical composition of the compound is. (eg: Common name for Sodium Chloride is Salt) whereas the chemical name is based on what the compound is made up of (A molecule of salt is made up of one atom of Sodium and one atom of chlorine. this can be understood from the chemical name, but not from the common name.)

No chlorine reading

Salt is sodium chloride, you can only measure salt levels now as your CL (cloride) is bound to a NA (sodium). Table salt =NACL, Your Intex system will tell you if your salt level is too high or too low but your old test equipment for free chlorine will continue to tell you no chlorine as it can't react with the chloride any longer as it is bound to the salt. That is why they tell you you never have to add more because the salt stabilizes it. Your chlorine is there it's bound to the salt. Use the pool it's fine and it makes your water feel really soft! Just keep the salt level right and your fine> It's confusing as they call the unit a chlorine generator! I had the same issue, called Intex and they told me the above.
