"For the last year we at Weston Snowboards have watched tragedies befall our National Forests, Parks and Monuments - from wildfires, to trail closures and park closures. These are the places that we play, where we snowboard, and where we go to find our little bit of peace and freedom," said Weston Snowboards co-owner, Mason Davey. "The root cause of these tragedies is that the U.S. Forest Service is underfunded to continue to preserve our lands. The Forest Service doesn't have the necessary funds to build and maintain trails, remove garbage to keep our trails and watershed clean, or to mitigate wildfires. This predicament inspired our team of four at Weston to see if we could do something bigger than our brand could imagine. We don't have the resources of big name brands, but we have a voice, and the path we want to pursue is unifying the people behind the forests and mountains we cherish, rather than drawing political battle lines."
The Freedom of the Forest kickoff event with the National Forest Foundation and partner brands will take place on Thursday, January 25th, the opening day of Outdoor Retailer, at Battery 621 in Denver. The party will feature speakers from the National Forest Foundation, live music, drinks and limited-edition raffle items from Freedom of the Forest partners - some of the most trusted and established brands in the outdoor industry.

Consuming too many acidic foods or beverages, such as many glasses of lemon water per day, causes your teeth to have a constant amount of acid washing over them. This will erode tooth enamel and make your teeth extra sensitive to hot or cold foods. To protect your teeth, drink acidic beverages through a straw. If you're already experiencing tooth erosion, consult a dentist who can recommend treatments such as bonding or sealers.
Drinking too much lemon with water may trigger heartburn or make this condition worse if you're used to experiencing it. Heartburn occurs when the esophageal sphincter, between your esophagus and stomach doesn't function properly, and acid from your stomach moves back up into your esophagus, a process known as reflux. (Heartburn is also referred to as acid reflux.) Heartburn causes severe burning and pain in your chest. Cutting back on acidic foods and drinks helps to prevent and relieve heartburn symptoms.
In rare cases, lemon water might have a diuretic effect. Lemons have a high content of vitamin C or ascorbic acid. This nutrient is well-known for its diuretic properties, which means azithromycin 100mg 5ml susp dosage increases urine production in the kidneys thereby helping your body to eliminate excess fluid and sodium more quickly. While regular lemon water -- made with a moderate amount of lemon juice or by adding lemon slices to water -- loading your water up with large amounts of lemon juice might have a diuretic effect in some cases. If you start to feel dehydrated after heavy lemon water consumption, consider cutting back the amount of lemon juice you add to your drink.
Don't drink lemon with water to treat any medical problem without the advice of your doctor. If you experience any side effects from drinking this beverage, stop drinking it. If side effects persist, seek medical attention as soon as possible.
