BOWLS, PLASTIC & STEEL
There is a basic assumption most consumers have – if it is on the shelf it must be safe. It must be safety tested. But this is just not true.
There is actually no safety testing going on regarding most products because industry is now running government. Actually, there is less safety testing going on now, than there was 20 years ago.
Plastic leaches, it is full of chemicals which are extremely toxic to the organic body, and the planet as nothing is recycled we are learning. All plastic breaks down, leaching into all food and water, especially if the food or water is sitting for any length of time in the plastic and/or it has been exposed to any heat source.
The resources below explain the dangers in plastics well with the chemicals listed and the dire health implications as a result. One of the best things you can do for your pet?
Why No Stainless Steel Bowls
Metal attracts electromagnetic waves (EMF) which are radiation. All Wi-Fi traffic searches to travel along metal. Most people assume Wi-Fi is cool as it is easy, and is not harmful. But this is not true, as it is extremely harmful to all. Therefore, no metal bowls please if Wi-Fi is in the environment.
Also, dogs have been known to be shocked from stainless steel bowls as a result of lightening currents. And now with the introduction of smart meters, an abundance of dirty electricity is now running through the ground for miles and miles, from our building structures, inside our walls and projecting out up to 3 ft.
This dirty power will also want to travel to the metal bowls. So please take care of your animals where metal is concerned.
Metal also changes the composition of the mineral content in food. So, if you are trying to heal your animal and keep offering minerals in metal bowls, the metal is engaging with the substances, changing the composition, and the animal is therefore not receiving the value.
Materials Safe for Your Pet?
Lead-free ceramic or glass please. Bowls are to be washed and changed at least once daily.
