When browsing the top best-sellers in the home category on Amazon, a set of metal drinking straws is an unusual product to see win a spot in the top ten. But as the anti-plastic-straw movement gains traction, with several cities (Miami Beach, Malibu, New York City) either banning straws completely or banning them in restaurants, people are starting to reevaluate their own plastic straw use. And as viral images and videos circulate showing sea turtles with plastic straws stuck up their nostrils and other very visual examples of how this simple habit is hurting our oceans and wildlife, people are determined to kick this habit.
And as the Amazon home best-sellers list shows, the movement doesn't mean you need to give up straws entirely—just replace the pesky single-use plastic ones with these washable, reusable metal ones ($9, amazon.com). This set of eight metal straws—four straight and four bent—also comes with two brushes for cleaning the straws in between uses. Plastic- and BPA-free, these straws are both better for you and the environment.
With more than 1,000 five-star reviews on Amazon, this set has proven to be the perfect alternative to ocean-harming plastic straws. Reviewers assure us that the straws don't have any metal aftertaste, and they help keep the water cold all the way up to your mouth. They also measure 10 1/2 inches long, so they're long enough to pair with a large 40-ounce tumbler or a giant smoothie from your favorite juice bar. The one critique reviewers have is that the straw diameter is a little more narrow than expected, but it's something most of the shoppers agree they can deal with.
If you're thinking about ditching ocean-littering plastic straws in favor of the more eco-friendly metal variety, this best-selling, top-rated set seems to be the surefire winner.

The Insulin Resistance Diet Protocol

NORMAN SCHMIDT DIABETES Insulin is a major issue for many individuals. While insulin is a natural part of a healthy system, when the body isn’t working perfectly then insulin can become a problem that results in pre-diabetes, diabetes, and weight loss, among many other issues. The rate of diabetes could easily become an epidemic that overwhelms the medical industry, especially as some numbers predict the rate of cases doubling from 190 million to 380 million over the next two and a half decades [1]. The good news is that in most cases insulin production in the body, and the body’s ability to properly handle it, is most often a dietary issue. This means that a proper eating plan that is carefully followed can be enough for most people to overcome their insulin resistance. Insulin resistance is a warning flag for diabetes and can make weight loss extremely difficult even for individuals who shouldn’t have a problem dropping pounds. This is where  the Insulin Resistance Die
