Examining Salt for Microplastics using an iPhone

#Salt #MicroPlastics #HomeSchooling

Prompted by a viewer concern about table salt I decided to do a terrible unscientific experiment to examine normal table salt for any microplastic contamination using my iPhone and a microscope attachment. A very reasonable and portable tool that is fantastic for homeschooling and teaching children about the world around them. It’s also a great toy that can be justified to the wife because “it’s for the kids.”

Please note that is not a sponsored video, should be obvious by the quality, but if you want to buy the microscope and want to help the channel please use the following Amazon Referral link to purchase it.

Parents Neglect Child with Vegan Diet

#VeganDiet #Nutrition #Food

Featuring special guest Jojo I discuss a recent case in which two parents neglected their 20-month-old to the point where she had no teeth and could not roll over all because of a vegan diet. I am disappointed at the Judge’s criticisms of the father. Particularly considering what might happen when a father tried to leave his wife with the kids. I also learnt that filming a video with a young child is challenging.

Oh and before any Vegans leave a comment please watch this video (https://youtu.be/fJEHiQKqfZM) and explain why there are no RCT’s for your diet when compared to others. Making decisions based on facts and real science is important.
