NCI Well Connect Mid-Week Brief
March 21, 2018
Dear Steve, 

DID YOU KNOW that a recent study in Spine stated that a substantial proportion of US adults utilized chiropractic services during the past 12 months reported positive outcomes for overall well-being and/or specific health problems for which concurrent conventional care was common?

Spring is the perfect time to let the body relax, repair, regenerate, and repopulate. OurSpring Cleanse 3-Day Challenge is a smart, low impact cleanse with nourishing foods and no harsh detoxifying agents. 3-day menu and shopping list is included.

Spring Cleanse 3-Day Challenge is free for NCI Well Connect Members. Simply email us your request for a copy. If you are not a NCI Well Connect Member, you can sign up for aone year membership here and get your free copy today!

Pure Genomics can now process results from raw genetic data through In the past, we could only process 23andMe raw data. For those of who have done but did not want to spend the money for 23andMe, it is your lucky day!

the FDA just approved 23andMe screening for BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes, commonly associated with breast and ovarian cancer? We applaud the fact that access to this information is available at a much more reasonable price. For those who have no interest in learning of your genetic risk to these genes, simply do not opt-in and you will not have to see them in your 23andMe profile.

Have a happy, healthy day! Steve and Bonnie
Bottled Water Microplastic Contamination
Bonnie and Steve: Ahhhhhhh...this is us breathing a sigh of relief. You may have seen a study all over the news last week with regard to bottled water microplastic contamination. Many popular brands were tested.

As we were reading the study, our hearts began to drop because we saw that our favorite sparkling water, Gerolsteiner, showed high levels of microplastic particles. Don't freak out yet...this is why we always read a study in its entirety.

It was the plastic bottles of Gerolsteiner that were the culprit, not the glass bottles. The glass bottles of Gerolsteiner showed no detectable microplastic contamination. We have always, and will continue to exclusively, recommend Gerolsteiner in glass bottles only. Phew! We were not even aware that Gerolsteiner was offered in plastic.

So to recap, Gerolsteiner in the glass bottles is not only safe, but a wonderful, alkalizing water we consider to be a supplement.

The findings of this study indicate that it is the quality of plastic that the water is bottled in which deems what is contaminated. 

The brands of bottled water you are familiar with that showed high levels of microplastic particles were Aquafina, Dasani, Evian, and Nestle Pure Life.

Basides Gerolsteiner glass bottles, the brand with the lowest level of microplastic particles was San Pellegrino (plastic and bottled).

If you would like to look at the study, here it is.
