Sharon Kleyne Applauds UK Free Water Study

Sharon Kleyne Says Similar Free Water Study Needed in U.S. Do You Have a Right to a Glass of Water?

For more than two decades, water advocate Sharon Kleyne has been teaching people here and abroad that they must replenish their evaporating body water vapor by consuming at least 8 to 10 glasses of water a day. Kleyne is also concerned that in our go-go culture, many people find themselves without water when they really need some. “What are your rights,” Kleyne asked, “when it’s time to get yourself a glass of water?” Kleyne acknowledged that many people today run around with their own water bottles, but others don’t have water bottles, or they forget them. What do they do in a pinch? “People need to do a little research and find what their rights are,” Kleyne said.

To that end, Kleyne was excited to share the results of a recent UK study on peoples’ right to free drinking water. In the Keep Britain Tidy poll, 25% of the British public knows when they can ask for and expect a free glass of water, but 71% feel awkward requesting water from venues where they are not customers. So, just what is the law? In the United Kingdom, all premises that are licensed are required by law to provide “free potable water” or “free tap water fit for drinking” (Scotland) to their customers. These premises include schools, bars, pubs, nightclubs, restaurants, cafes, fast food eateries, cinemas, theaters and even community halls. Not all businesses do this, but it is legal if they wish to charge you for a glass or for their service, or both. Unlicensed businesses such as stadiums, swimming pools, health clubs, tourist attractions and beauty salons are not required to provide drinking water on demand.

According to Kleyne, the study also reflected the public’s growing awareness regarding public health issues. She cited the fact that only 7% of the poll’s respondents said that they drink water from public drinking fountains; 55% registered concerns about the cleanliness of public water taps, fountains and dispensers. Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, is dedicated to water and the study of supplementing the body’s and the earth’s water vapor evaporation with pure water. She has also been a trailblazer uncovering the benefits of pure water for pharmaceutical and medical application.

Holder of several global patents and her company, Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, Kleyne produces and markets unique, original eye and skin all-natural moisturizing products with no competitors. These products use a simple, pH-balanced pure water mist for supplementation—replacing the water vapor lost every day to evaporation. Her company’s products are unique among eye and skin moisturizers because their effectiveness is based not on chemicals or additives, but on the natural ability of eyes and skin to absorb moisture from the air. Kleyne believes that in an era of increasing health challenges from pollution and climate change, her unique water therapy products have the ability to empower each individual, on their own, to create a personal micro-environment of healthy, pure, moist air—a new water lifestyle®.

Kleyne is so enthusiastic about the new British poll and study into what we know about free drinking water that she wants a similar study done here in the U.S. “We need to examine carefully all of our beliefs and attitudes about water,” said Kleyne. “We need to learn more about water, which is the breath of life; then we need to learn some more!”

Orality Network Offers Water Education Through The Ear

Sharon Klyene & Jerry Wiles Share Global Water Awareness. More People Learn about Water through Listening, Not Reading.

Did you know that 70% to 80% of the people in the world learn more by listening than by reading? That’s an overwhelming statistic, but it’s true. It’s true because global literacy is still more a dream than a reality. Many world leaders continue to minimize the importance of education, leaving their citizens ill-prepared for a rapidly expanding, technically complex global economy and work environment. Dr. Jerry Wiles, North America Regional Director of International Orality Network & President Emeritus of Living Water International (www.jerrywiles@oraliynexus.org) believes that this learning reality has created a paradigm shift in international education.

Dr. Wiles met with Sharon Kleyne, host of the nationally syndicated radio program The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on VoiceAmerica sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® to discuss the ramifications of oral learning, the global water crisis and new water initiatives that are responding to it. Water advocate Kleyne, a leading global educator of new water research, water in the atmosphere, body water vapor and the effects of evaporation, encourages people to take more responsibility for their personal health.“We must get evaporation into our vocabulary,” Kleyne said. We also need to understand that at birth we begin an evaporation process of water loss that lasts until we die.”

Dr. Wiles sees the task ahead as raising awareness about water and its challenges. “700 million people in the world do not have access to water,” said Wiles, “while two billion more people lack sanitation in their water supplies.” Dr. Wiles explained that his organization focuses on a concept of ‘the least and last’. Wiles elaborated: “Our primary focus, our number one goal, is to relieve people who spend hours a day carrying water. We dig wells, we educate communities and we teach people how to manage and sustain their own water supplies.”

Wiles and Kleyne agreed that we must find ways to convince disinterested political leaders that making water the number one infrastructure priority is a necessity, not a luxury. Kleyne pointed to the disaster of the lead in the water pipes of Flint, Michigan, saying that “the problem is not unique to Flint. The problem exists in cities and towns all over America and elsewhere in the world.” Wiles praised Kleyne’s dedication to new water research and new technology and encouraged her to help create an ongoing global dialogue about these water issues. Wiles suggested focus groups and redoubled education efforts throughout the U.S. and elsewhere. Wiles also encouraged Americans to learn all they can about conservation. “In the U.S. our issues are much different than they are in, say, central Africa,” said Wiles. “In the U.S. we waste so much water! We misuse water, too. This has to stop because there is a finite amount of water on the planet.” Kleyne agreed, forecasting severe water shortages in the not-too-distant future if people don’t wake up and learn much more about water than they know now.

How Kombucha Fulfilled One Boy’s Dream

GT Dave’s Kombucha Is the Choice Among Kombucha Purists. If You Want Real Kombucha, You Want GT Dave’s Kombucha.

When Dave was a boy, he helped his mother bottle their exclusive Kombucha in their home in Bel Air, California while his mother and friends worked to launch the business. From the beginning, they were committed to producing pure Kombucha unlike a lot of the popular products on the market today. Those products contain additives and sugar and other ingredients that are not natural or especially healthy for consumers.

Dave did not participate just because he was expected to. He quickly learned to use the product and love it and by the time he left his teens he was prepared to take over the daily management of operations. Dave became GT Dave of GTS Kombucha. Today, Dave is a bundle of positive energy as he hawks his family’s Kombucha far and wide, extolling the health benefits of probiotics especially as found in his company’s delicious beverages. Like his competition, Dave offers a variety of Kombucha flavors (lavender, cherry, peach, cranberry, lemon and raspberry among others), but his flavors are all natural. Nothing sugary or artificial goes into a bottle of GT Dave’s Kombucha.

Water advocate Sharon Kleyne, the leading global educator of new water research, water vapor of the earth and body and the effects of evaporation, is a fan of GT Dave’s Kombucha and she encourages people to try it. As Kleyne points out, Kombucha dates back to at least 221 BCE in China where it was known as the “tea of immortality”. Traditionally, it’s made of slightly sweetened tea (green, black or both) that ferments for a month or more while a mushroom-type blob floats on top. In fact, this is the most important ingredient of Kombucha. Known as a scoby (symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast) this healthy floating blob consumes the sugar, caffeine and tannic acids in the tea, creating a cocktail of live microorganisms.

These microorganisms are found in other fermented foods such as kimchi, sauerkraut and unpasteurized yogurt. Probiotics advocates insist that fermented foods aid digestion, discourage allergies, cancer and lower fatigue and stress. Probiotics are why organic apple cider vinegar is so good for you. There are even recent indicators that raw and fermented foods may improve the conditions of children with autism. GT Dave says that his goal is to combine the wisdom of ancient medicinal foods with the resources of the modern day to create products that uplift and enlighten the health of all those who enjoy them. Today, GT’s offers over 20 flavors of gluten-free, non-GMO Kombucha. Additional flavors include delicious natural ingredients such as turmeric, carrot and ginger.

“Probiotics promote life,” said Dave. “They’re the opposite of antibiotics, which kill living organisms. Through the process of fermentation, which is a way for food to preserve itself, probiotics are created naturally to boost our immune systems and aid digestion.” Kleyne encourages you to visit GT Dave’s website at http://www.gtskombucha.com.

Where Does Our Drinking Water Come From?

‘Dry’ Expert Sharon Kleyne Shares Drinking Water Facts. You Should Worry That Drinking Water Will Dry Up.

Many of us understand that we need to be drinking 8 to 10 glasses of water a day to supplement our body and eye water vapor, moisture that we lose to daily evaporation, but are we all clear about where this water comes from? That’s what water advocate and Water Life Science® educator, Sharon Kleyne, wants to know. “People look at an image of the earth, see all that beautiful blue and think we have lots of water! Unfortunately, almost all of it is unusable as drinking water.” Yes, Kleyne observes, 72% of the earth is covered in water, but more than 97% of it is the salt water in oceans and seas (and a few inland lakes). Another 2% is frozen water making icecaps and glaciers. Only 0.001% of the water is in the atmosphere. That gives us 1% of the planet’s water for everyone to drink. When you realize that the earth’s population is increasing steadily, week after week and that more of the planet is dry, you can begin to see the challenge facing all of us. Where will we get our drinking water?

Sharon Kleyne

“For the foreseeable future,” says Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® and host of the nationally syndicated radio program, The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on VoiceAmerica sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, “we’ll continue to get our drinking water from two natural sources: groundwater and surface water.” Kleyne explains that ground water comes from snow or rain that seeps into the ground and settles in aquifers while surface water, also coming from snow and rain, fills up rivers, streams and lakes. But these numbers are cautionary. Kleyne wants you to consider, before your glasses and wells dry up, that groundwater accounts for only 0.62% of the world’s water; surface water 0.091%. We are operating on a razor-thin margin!

The safety of our drinking water is another stressful issue. Pollutants such as lead, bacteria and nitrates can get into our drinking water from the ground and air. Other elements such as irn, manganese and chloride can stain your sinks and cause bad odors and tastes, but they are at least not considered dangerous to your health. However, a recent United States Geologic Survey study of streams in 30 states found that 80% of the streams sampled contained at least one antibiotic, prescription drug, steroid or hormone contaminant. We already know that these elements harm the natural wildlife, but more study needs to be done to determine the ill effects of these elements o humans. It’s a safe bet that the results will not be good.

“So,” says Kleyne, “we have a lot of work to do if we’re going to avoid severe water shortages and water rationing in the near future. We must discover and develop new war technology that will lead to greater supplies of fresh, safe drinking water. Otherwise, we face a long, unhealthy, Dry future.”

Making Kombucha The GT Dave Way

Not all Kombucha Is the Same. Sharon Kleyne Raves about the Real Kombucha from GT Dave.

Water advocate Sharon Kleyne, the leading global educator of new water research, water vapor of the earth and body and the effects of evaporation, has always encouraged people to be responsible for their personal health. That includes drinking lots of water, supplementing body water vapor and eye water vapor several times a day and eating healthy foods.

One healthy food that Kleyne endorses is Kombucha, the fermented, probiotic all-natural drink, but she doesn’t mean just any Kombucha. The fact is, Kombucha, which tastes like a slightly sweet and fizzy apple cider vinegar drink with some weird things floating in it, is not always made in the same way. Many manufacturers add ingredients to Kombucha to make it taste better. Specifically, some add a lot of sugar, which of course defeats the whole purpose of drinking Kombucha in the first place.

Kombucha, of course, can be dated back to at least 221 BCE in China where it was known as the “tea of immortality”. Traditionally, it’s made of slightly sweetened tea (green, black or both) that ferments for a month or more while a mushroom-type blob floats on top. In fact, this is the most important ingredient of Kombucha. Known as a scoby (symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast) it consumes the sugar, caffeine and tannic acids in the tea, creating a cocktail of live microorganisms. These microorganisms can be found in other fermented foods such as kimchi, sauerkraut and unpasteurized yogurt. Probiotics advocates say that fermented foods aid digestion, discourage allergies and cancer and lower fatigue and stress. Probiotics are why organic apple cider vinegar is so good for you. There are even recent indicators that raw and fermented foods may improve the conditions of children with autism.

Founder of GT’s Kombucha, Dave has been bottling Kombucha since he was fifteen years old. Dave says that his goal is to combine the wisdom of ancient medicinal foods with the resources of the modern day to create products that uplift and enlighten the health of all those who enjoy them. Like many competitor, GT’s has created new flavors, but only by using natural ingredients and never including additives (like sugar) of any kind. Today, GT’s offers over 20 flavors of gluten-free, non-GMO Kombucha. Added flavors include delicious natural ingredients such as turmeric, carrot and ginger.

“Probiotics literally promote life,” said Dave. “They’re the opposite of antibiotics, which kill living organisms. Through the process of fermentation, which is a way for food to preserve itself, probiotics are created naturally to boost our immune systems and aid digestion.” Kleyne encourages you to visit GT Dave’s website at http://www.gtskombucha.com to find a retailer stocking the best and original Kombucha you can buy anywhere.

Sharon Kleyne & Neville L Johnson Discuss Strategies For Stopping Cyber-Bullies

Education about Stopping Cyber-Bullies Must be Ramped Up. Sharon Kleyne & Neville L. Johnson Put Cyber-Bullies on Notice.

Attorney Neville L. Johnson, a founding partner of Johnson & Johnson in California, www.jjllplaw.com/attorneys/neville-l-johnson, recently shared with Sharon Kleyne and radio listeners this insight into his good character: “I still regret,” said Johnson, “that I didn’t come to the aid of a kid being bullied in the second or third grade; that still bothers me. We need more love and respect every day.” This is why Johnson devotes some of his time and energy as an attorney and citizen to serving with Public Justice, an organization of twelve lawyers that takes on cyber-bullying, most recently in Washington, D,C, and Oakland, California.

“We all have the right to a good reputation,” Johnson said. The author of the acclaimed biography of the greatest college basketball coach of all time, The John Wooden Pyramid of Success, Johnson believes that reality television shows like Survivor, social media like Facebook and the corporate practice of gathering everybody’s data are partially to blame for cyber-bullying. “We could also use a robust public debate on conflicts created by the First Amendment,” Johnson says. “It needs to be established that you can’t break the law to get news.”

Water advocate Sharon Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, has experienced cyber-bullying firsthand. Kleyne speculated that a deep need for attention drives those who wind up bullying others. Kleyne believes one Antidote might be courtesy. She suggested that everyone should be more polite and respectful in their homes. Kleyne also thinks that schools should offer a course on Manners and what’s positive about them. “Take China, for instance,” she said. “The Chinese believe in hugging and they are concerned for each other. Everybody has a place and even thought the culture is fiercely competitive, most are not cutthroat about it,”

Sharon Kleyne was interested to learn that, according to Johnson, perhaps the biggest issue facing our internet-driven lives is the Communications Decency Act. This Act makes exempt Google, Facebook, Yahoo and others exempt from lawsuits. “The biggest problem for employees in the U.S.,” Johnson warns, “is the law that says an employee can only sue an employer through arbitration.” Johnson explains that such a system is weighted in favor of the employer because it’s the business that hires the arbitrator. “A law has been introduced in Congress to change this situation,” Johnson says, “but so far Republicans have blocked it.”

If you are the victim of cyber-bullying or privacy piracy,” Kleyne and Johnson agree that your options are limited. If it’s something posted on line, you should ask the poster to take it down. If that doesn’t work, offer a rebuttal. Finally, you can threaten to sue. “It’s important to keep after it,” Johnson says. Johnson adds. “We need to be more mindful. Respect is what everybody deserves at all times. The most important thing,” Johnson concludes, “is to be a good person.”

Is The California Drought Coming To An End?

Orange County Water District General Manager Provides Updates. Sharon Kleyne & Mike Markus Seek Better Education & More New Water Research.

Guest: Mike Markus, General Manager, Orange County Water District in California
http://www.ocwd.com

It’s great news that California’s three-year drought is ending in most parts of the state and Sharon Kleyne, the nation’s foremost water advocate and host of the nationally syndicated The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on VoiceAmerica, sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® recently visited with Mike Marcus, General Manager of California’s Orange County Water District to hear updates from the state’s battle with drought.

Markus, who has worked in his position since 2007 and is a Hollywood native who moved as a child to Orange County, explained to Kleyne and her audience that the Orange County Water District manages, replenishes and protects the Orange County Groundwater Basin. This is the county’s largest source of drinking water. The basin—270 square miles in size—delivers approximately 75% of the water supply to 2.4 million residents in north and central Orange County. Markus also talked at length about the fact that his district does a great job educating people about where the water comes from. He specifically mentioned one outreach program, the Children’s Water Education Festival, a rollicking two-day event attracting thousands of people to talks and interactive displays.

Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, has for years encouraged listeners and others to experience a new, healthy Water Life Science® lifestyle. She encouraged more education and honest reportage. “Too many people are ignorant of the facts,” said Kleyne. “Then they get dismissive. They say ‘oh, it’s only water’. Well, you might just as well say, ‘it’s only life’. Believe me,” said Kleyne, “we have run out of wiggle room on this issue. If the global water crisis gets much worse, we’ll have to contend with billions of people whose health will have suffered because they’re dehydrated due to excessive evaporation of their water body vapor. At the same time,” Kleyne added, “over-evaporation of earth’s water vapor will severely compromise the air we breathe.” Kleyne praised Markus and his district for doing so much to expand education opportunities in water and developing new technology for smarter water use.

Markus shared that the Orange County District has come to rely more and more on recycled water, specifically waste water that is, after an advanced filtration process, converted into distilled water. Orange County’s is the first facility to use reverse osmosis in this process.

“The people of Orange County have a right to clean, healthy water,” Markus concluded. “We have the technology and we have the experience. Now we need the commitment from elected officials to invest in water and water education for all.”
