Last November the local papers reported that small levels of cryptosporidium had been found in the Millstreet water supply, despite the fact that an assessment in 2015 rated the risk of cryptosporidium as “very high”. The EPA recommended that even though there was no immediate health risk, Irish Water should install an adequate barrier against the parasite to ensure the town’s water supply is adequately disinfected at all times.
Thankfully Irish Water are reporting today that “Upgrade works are underway in Millstreet in North Cork to provide a new UV disinfection system at the treatment plant.” [theCork.ie]

We all know how popular superfoods, like kale, are nowadays. Known for their health benefits and being nutrient dense they; are becoming more of a mainstream choice in our daily diets. Luckily we are all starting to get a fresh new grasp on the importance of healthy eating and what it means to take care of ourselves holistically in general.

all kinds of digestive problems
low energy and energy slumps during the day
