Hi, I'm Dr. K C Yee, love god, serve others and live simply

K C Yee's Bio:

 

Dr K C Yee is a researcher in the area of Health Sciences,

There is not a single aspect of the human experience that hasn't been touched by technology. Everything from industry to medicine to how we work as been fundmentally reshaped by the technologies which emerged in the second half of the 20th Century

So I have started a fasting (meal skipping experiment) in an attempt to lose weight, It has been one month, and I have learned on how to listen to my stomach, to tell the difference between "stomach" hunger and real hunger. my stomach was on a feeding schedule of morning, noon and evening, and whether my body need to the energy or not, my stomach demands food on its schedule. in fact, I can almost tell the time of the day using my hunger feeling. sun generates energy from fusion (combining) of hydrogen atoms, and nuclear energy generate energy from fission (breaking up) of large unstable atoms. Fusion and fission are like seesaws, both are potential energy. In nature, black holes are big fission reactors and stars are big fusion reactors. What most people do not realize, is how little sodium is in softened water. The amount of sodium in your drinking water from a water softener system can vary depending on the hardness of your water, but you are certainly not drinking “salt water”. In fact, on average, less than three percent of your daily sodium intake comes from drinking softened water. So while some may worry that drinking softened water will increase their salt intake, in reality nearly all sodium in our diets comes from the food we eat. Did you know that eight glasses of softened water contains about as much sodium as would be found in a typical piece of white bread? There is currently a medical controversy over what effect, if any, drinking hard or soft water may have on heart disease. In some areas with naturally soft water, residents seem to suffer more from heart disease. In other areas, there appears to be no difference between drinking hard and soft water. A number of researchers feet that some other constituent of water -- not hardness or softness may be responsible for the variations in heart disease figures in different areas of the country. Some researchers believe that very small amounts of a "protective" substance may be present in some water supplies and lacking in others. This unknown substance could have a beneficial effect on the heart in much the same way that minute amounts of fluoride protect the teeth. At the present time, no one knows exactly what this substance may be. Other scientists feel that the problem might be caused by other elements, such as cadmium, in the drinking water. It is known that this metal can cause high blood pressure when taken in small quantities. Trace amounts of cadmium can be dissolved from galvanized water pipes by the corrosive action of naturally soft water. Water from a water softener doesn’t rinse the soap off (the “Slippery Feeling”) “Showering in soft water makes my skin feel ‘slippery’.” Showering in soft water may give you the sensation that soap and shampoo haven’t been rinsed away. In fact, by removing the dissolved rock from your water, a water softener provides you with water to thoroughly clean your skin and hair, allowing your natural softening and moisturizing agents do their job. With hard water, skin pores clog with soap residue, leaving skin dry and hair dull. When steam is produced in a boiler, the dissolved solids stay in the boiler water as the steam leaves. These solids will concentrate with steam production. At some point, the boiler requires blowdown (the discharge of boiler water with concentrated dissolved solids). Energy, water and chemical savings are achieved by reducing boiler blowdown. Hardness is most efficiently removed via water softeners installed to treat makeup to the boiler (the alternative is to add chemical which adds dissolved solids, increasing the need for blowdown). Dissolved oxygen is most efficiently removed by preheating and venting (most commonly done with a deaerator, but sometimes done with a simple sparging nozzle and vent). Dramatic reduction in dissolved solids (and a corresponding increase in water, chemical and energy) occurs when reverse osmosis is used as part of the pretreatment equipment. Blowdown is measured by a term called cycles of concentration. By definition, the ratio of makeup water (or feedwater) to blowdown is called cycles of concentration. Raising cycles reduces blowdown and therefore minimizes water losses. Water conservation is maximized by using control systems that accurately control the amount of necessary blowdown. Good control equipment will prevent wide fluctuations in blowdown, thereby preventing precipitation and wasting water and the energy used to heat that water. Hard water scale blocks nozzles, coats pipework and significantly decreases the efficiency of boilers and heat exchangers leading to substantially increased energy consumption. Our products Colloid-A-Tron, Scaletron and Housetron offer a proven water softener alternative and can be found all over the world successfully preventing scale in industrial, commercial and residential settings. Unlike the majority of chemical free water softener alternatives Fluid Dynamics scale prevention units require no power, no maintenance and no space as they simply replace an existing section of pipe. There’s no water wasted, no backwash cycle, no salt and products are compliant with NSF 61/372 (see certification here). Product life is typically 15+ years. To regenerate the ion resin beads, sodium or potassium crystals are added to a tank that creates a brine that through a regeneration and backwash process donates sodium or potassium to the ion resin while washing the absorbed calcium and magnesium down the drain. Some softeners feature a programmable timer that regenerates the ions and remove the absorbed hard minerals at prescribed intervals, while more modern units sense when the ion resin requires regeneration, automatically backwashing and regenerating when needed. Hard water is usually found in deep wells, and is rarely a problem with municipal water supplies. Due to the excessively high levels of calcium (lime) and magnesium, hard water causes mineral build-up in showerheads, dishwashers, pipes, and water heaters, reducing water flow. In addition, soap and detergent lathering is reduced causing less effective cleaning, leading to soap scum on glasses and dishes and lime deposits on bathroom fixtures, toilets and bathtubs. Soft water feels more slippery, creates more lather with soaps and shampoos, and makes it more difficult to wash soaps and shampoos from your hair and skin. The majority of water softeners use sodium chloride, however many new water softener manufacturers offer potassium chloride as an alternative. While water with potassium is safer than water with sodium, excess potassium can also be dangerous. Drinking, making coffee or juice, or cooking with softened water is not recommended. The Greenway Standard Series softeners bring household water to a new level of quality with the convenience of advanced controls and proven system performance. The metered microprocessor-based controllers and LCD displays simplify system programming and operation. The GWSC Series does the rest. Laundry soaps and shampoos clean better than ever. Best of all, your GWSC Series water softener will minimize system salt and water usage.
