The Best Laxative Foods for Natural Constipation Relief

Constipation is a taboo subject for many people. If you’re too embarrassed to discuss it, know that you are far from alone. Constipation affects about 14% of adults in the United States and accounts for an astounding 3.2 million medical visits every year. It’s a common and widespread issue. Nobody wants to talk about it, but for the sake of our health, maybe it’s time we opened a dialogue.[1]

Americans spend three-quarters of a billion dollars on laxatives every year, and it’s not helping.[1] Pharmaceutical laxatives and stool softeners often make constipation worse. Laxative overuse can lead to dependency, making it difficult or impossible to have a bowel movement without using strong laxatives.[2] Over-the-counter (OTC) laxatives also tend to produce some serious side effects including abdominal cramps, dehydration, dizziness, low blood pressure, electrolyte imbalance, and bloody stool.[3, 4]

Are You Still Using Plastic Bags? #BanTheBag

Are You Still Using Plastic Bags? #BanTheBag

Being so accustomed to the convenience and ready supply of plastic bags in supermarkets across Australia, it can be difficult to change our habits and remember to pack reusable shopping bags – especially on an unplanned, afterwork stop-in. While supermarkets like Aldi and some smaller grocers do not automatically provide plastics bags at checkouts (prompting some organization on our part, or opting for the cardboard box) the lack of participation by major supermarkets and convenience stores means our collective contribution to the production and littering of plastics remains significant.
