Fingernails and your Health [Infographic] | ecogreenloveby Berkeley Wellness

It’s often said that the eyes are the window to the soul. But might fingernails reveal your health status? All kinds of conditions and diseases can affect your nails. For example, small depressions or pitting often occur in people with psoriasis.

A 2012 paper noted that 77 percent of psoriasis sufferers have nail abnormalities, most commonly pitting and onycholysis (a separation of the nail from the nail bed). Though far more common on toenails, fungus can also infect fingernails (onychomycosis), causing nails to thicken and turn yellowish.

Urban Agriculture [Infographic]

Originally Published by  on Bozzuto blog

Urban Agriculture is a movement towards growing and raising more food within densely populated areas of major cities. Today, about 15% of the world’s food is now grown in urban areas. Since space is limited in big cities, you may have noticed city gardens sprouting up in smaller spaces (like rooftops or apartment balconies). Another green benefit to urban gardening is that you can re-purpose old recyclable milk jugs or woven baskets and use them as containers for new veggies. Vegetables that are ideally suited for growing in containers include tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, green onions, beans, lettuce, squash, radishes and parsley.

Have you already been practicing urban agriculture and balcony or patio gardening? We would love to hear about it! What tips can you share on how to have the greenest thumb on the block?
