The point I want to make, is that a lack of pronunciation skills and understanding about chemistry isn't a rational argument for avoiding certain foods or ingredients. Everything is chemicals, and everything can kill you in high enough doses. Living a "chemical free lifestyle" sound great, but only if you want to have a lifespan of a few seconds.
'Seriously, you mean I don't have to have a period every month whilst on the Pill?' 'That's correct, you don't have to bleed every month if you don't want to. In fact, you can safely take the Pill continuously without a break for as long as you are on the Pill'. Every time I give young women this information, I hear: 'Why have I not been told this before?
It is not just money (or lack of) that is forcing children to eat in a way that is detrimental to their health. People make poor choices in general when it comes to food for their families. The modern diet, full of refined carbohydrates, hydrogenated vegetable oils and sugar, can in itself cause problems.
While Cameron may pacify us that there will be no switch to an insurance-based model (although he wants to "turn the NHS into a fantastic business"), ...
People today walk almost a third less than they did just twenty years ago. Whilst for our grandparent's generation, walking to school was the norm, nowadays it's becoming more and more uncommon.
Cynical click-bait headline aside, I'll cut to the chase, they don't work. There, I said it. But let's look at why that is, there are three main reasons...
One of my favourite places to go and visit is the local graveyard. We live on a square block, the streets conveniently named North, East, South and West, and the cemetery is on the North side of the square. I have no relatives or friends buried there, in fact, I have no connection to anyone there. But there's something about the ambience, the peace and the love that has gone into that patch of land that permeates the air and is hard to find anywhere else.
It was the first time that I had visited A&E and not had to wait. I was raced into the medical room on a gurney, electrodes were stuck on my body to check my heart was not about to collapse. Blood tests taken to check my liver was still functioning and calculate exactly just what I had thrown down my throat.
The British Dietetic Association (BDA) recommends eating two portions of fish a week, of which, one should be oily fish, such as salmon or mackerel. However, since there is no specific recommendation of a dose for Omega-3 for the general population, it is extremely difficult to understand if you are consuming enough of the right Omegas.
What do the next five years hold for the NHS? The pre-election jamboree is quickly evaporating. The promise of billions more in funding now feels like a distant sound-bite. The Daily Telegraph recently set the tone with a front page headline in which Jeremy Hunt declared that the NHS now has enough money and will have to make do. However, all the talk on funding in the election debates completely missed the point.
You can be the strongest person in the world and still be struck down with an anxiety disorder. In all fairness, it's usually the strongest and most confident people who suffer from anxiety disorders because they hide their emotions away.
Symptoms of PP are varied and can change quickly. Feeling 'high', 'manic' or 'on top of the world', low mood and tearfulness, and anxiety or irritability are all pretty common. Most commonly these episodes begin in the first two weeks after birth and often symptoms begin in the first few days after having a baby...
Beauty and happiness do not actually go hand in hand, one does not automatically equate to the other. There is after all a beauty that we all agree on- the beautiful people in Hollywood, the models and anyone who essentially graces the front cover of Sports illustrated Magazine!
Alcohol has hi-jacked situations that automatically give us what we need. It's the squeaky clean boss who claims the credit for all the work done by the rest of the team. Or the goal-hanging striker who gets the plaudits for scoring the winning goal.
After filming The Apprentice a year ago I moved to London to start my business. The major impact this had was it broke my routine. I believe routine is so important to maintaining physical goals.
This chocolate orange cheesecake is everything I could ever want in a dessert - it's rich, smooth, chocolately, tangy, sweet, creamy, I could go on and on! In a word, it's just perfect, and without a doubt the best thing I've ever made, so I hope you fellow cheesecake lovers love it too!
