What is interesting is the fact that the majority of households around the world use plastic bottles to store or drink water. Prolonged usage of recycled or low-grade plastic bottles for the storage of drinking water can lead to more harm than you think. Our ancestors, for centuries, relied on copper containers to store water. However, this trend seems to have died out over the last century or so.

Did you know that the United States Environmental Protection Agency (or EPA) has officially registered copper as the only solid material that successfully kills bacteria and protects human beings from potential health risks?

The oligodynamic effect (copper ions dissolving in water) works wonders on drinking water when it is stored in a copper utensil or bottle for more than 8 hours, eliminating any harmful entities present therein. when the water is stored in a copper vessel, copper ions dissolve into the water and kill any kind of bacteria and microbes.

Basically copper naturally purifies the water, and not only these but ancient ayurvedic scriptures also claim many benefits of drinking copper charged water like

  • Promotes fat loss
  • Improves gut bacteria by killing harmful bacterias in our intestine
  • Improve skin
  • Prevents anemia
  • Regulates thyroid function
  • Helps with inflamed joints

Now some of you might be concerned about copper toxicity, but this only happens only in the case of a high intake of copper, this won’t happen in case of using it through the water.

Earthern Pots instead of Water Cooler


According to medical researches, taking cold water decreases heart rate and stimulates the nerve which controls the involuntary functions of the body, this is known as the vagus nerve.

This nerve is also an integral part of the nervous system. As the vagus nerve is directly affected by the ingestion low temperature of the water, the heart rate eventually slows down, that is, as an emergency measure, your heart rate slows down until your body temperature reaches equilibrium once again. This is not too good for the heart as it can lead to other heart-related problems, like constricting of arteries increasing the chances of a heart attack.

Regular drinking of cold water can also hinder your chances of reducing your waistline. Gulping cold water after a meal affects the breakdown of fat. This is because cold temperatures in the body dampen the digestive fire and makes fats of our meal harden and congeal, making them more difficult for the body to break down.

We cant call it a grinder because the blades in most of the modern-day grinders cut the pieces instead of grinding them, grinding fresh herbs in mortar and pestle has more health benefits in comparison to using store-bought herbs and spice powder. Freshly grounded spices and herbs taste totally different from mixer ground ones, you can try it.

The science behind this is simple, Plants are made of rigid, boxy tissues that trap vital flavor inside. You need to rupture them to release that flavor, and crushing does so far more effectively than the thin blade of a knife. A mortar and pestle also does the job, paradoxically, with far less bruising to herbs than you’d get from finely mincing them or running them through a grinder. Since a mortar and pestle move only as fast as your hand can, it won’t generate heat through friction as a grinder would. Not only does this old-fashioned tool extract more flavor than a spinning blade, but it’ll keep those colors brighter, too.

Using Muslin cloth instead of Aluminum Foil

Aluminum has been shown to enter the human body predominantly through the oral route, as it is present in food, food additives, pharmaceuticals, utensils, and water. In healthy individuals, it gets excreted out of the body.

But, the capacity of the human body to excrete such metals is limited. When this limit is exceeded they gradually accumulate in cells of the muscles, kidneys, liver, bones, etc. Aluminum also has a very dangerous effect on brain cells. As it acts like an oxidative free radical. The metal so gets accumulated in the body results in slow poisoning.

Studies have shown aluminum leaches out from the storage vessel or foil and contaminate the food material. The aluminum leaching is more during heating and in the presence of acidic contents in food. Researchers are investigating the level of aluminum accumulation in the body and its effect on developing diseases. Several reports highlighted that aluminum increases the risk of Alzheimer’s disease and other neurological disorders. In addition, the high internal concentrations of aluminum may induce convulsions, esophagitis, gastroenteritis, kidney damage, liver dysfunction, loss of appetite, loss of balance, muscle pain, psychosis, shortness of breath, weakness, fatigue, and birth defects in newborns.

Hence it’s now high time to ditch the foils and start using a muslin cloth,

In our Modern society, nonstick pans are extremely popular—and it’s not hard to see why. Clean-up is easy, thanks to a special coating that keeps food from bonding to the surface of the pan. The nonstick surface also allows you to cook with less (or even no) oil or butter. But are they safe?

Fluoropolymers such as polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) and substances containing polyfluoroalkyl and perfluoroalkyl compounds (PFAs) are commonly used to create modern non-stick cooking utensils. These materials are extremely toxic and highly resilient, both in relation to their interaction with the human body and also the wider environment.

These compounds contain fluorinated chemicals which give rise to that slippery surface that we all enjoy cooking on. When exposed to heat, this non-stick cookware becomes a source of perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), which is a long-chain chemical compound that has been linked to a concerning range of health problems like thyroid disease, infertility in women, organ damage, and developmental and reproductive problems.

The benefits of cast iron skillets are much better than the generic stainless steel and a far cry from the toxins associated with cooking on nonstick, Teflon pans, No more worries about those chemicals deposits into your food.
