#Babycarrots today are a breed apart from the original product, which were peeled and reshaped from broken or misshapen larger carrots. California carrot farmer Mike Yurosek was the entrepreneur in the 1980s who reshaped the way you think about #carrots.

As Yurosek’s method of peeling and reshaping has evolved over the years, the popularity of the product has grown. Today, farmers produce hybrid carrots designed to meet the needs of the consumer who wants a fresh out-of-the-bag snack without the hassle of peeling and cleaning. But, does all that convenience come at a price?

Part of the process baby carrots undergo before reaching the grocery store is a chlorine bath. The largest carrot farm, Grimmway Farms, reports that chlorine is used on all their baby carrots to prevent food poisoning. After their chlorine wash they are rinsed, packaged and shipped.

#Chlorine, used to clean and preserve the carrots, is a common chemical found in your water supply, pesticides, paper and plastics. In the last 30 years, a growing body of evidence has suggested that chlorine and by-products trigger significant negative health conditions.

It isn’t the chlorine that causes the problems, but rather the disinfection byproducts (DBPs) produced when chlorine interacts with organic matter. These byproducts are far more toxic than the chlorine, including trihalomethanes and haloacetic acids. In this instance, the term organic is used to mean a compound that is carbon-based.

This means these byproducts are produced in all carrots, whether toxic pesticides were used in the growing process or not. Long-term risks of exposure to DBPs include excessive free radical formation, which accelerates aging and vulnerability to gene mutation and cancer. More than 600 DBPs have been discovered, some of which are linked to liver malfunction, arteriosclerotic damage and neurodegenerative changes.

Scientists are only beginning to understand the long- and short-term impact of chlorine-based chemicals. The healthiest option is to buy whole, unprocessed carrots β€” Ideally

No one really knows about the history of the portaloo, except that it goes by many names - bucket toilets, freezing toilets, urine-diversion dehydration toilets - to name but a few. 🚽

Such portaloos are great for events but some are just beyond disgusting. Some do not have a basin for handwashing, while others have neither tissue paper nor a water hose. This is understandable given its limited resources and lack of attachment to any power sources. 🚽

Nonetheless, I am impressed with this particular waterloo station at Sentosa. It comes with a retrofitted tissue paper holder with an adequate amount of tissue, has a working basin, as well as a clean and working flushing system that emits a chlorine smell to kill those disgusting germs. This is one rare time where I did not mind using the portaloo and did not shiver due to its grossness. 🚽

Let's make portaloos great again. πŸ’‘
