The sugar from fruit is 'natural', for sure, but that doesn't mean it is good for you - deadly nightshade is natural too! Don't be lulled into the marketing ploy of an 'all-natural' juice - sugar is sugar, and we need to keep on top of our consumption.
Not everyone has a propensity to deal with such difficulties - even if those difficulties are likely to be temporary because the mentally ill party is receiving treatment. And I don't think that's being prejudiced or discriminatory. That's just the reality.

The reason it appeared that disabled people, healthcare professionals and people of faith were opposed to a change in the law was that leaders of these groups were unfairly misrepresenting the majority... This Friday these issues will be discussed at length in the House of Lords.
"Tell me about your weight?" he asked and I knew where this was going. "The problem is you are just too unfit to run this marathon" he continued. If rolling your eyes was a more acceptable way of showing your contempt I would have done so but instead I simply replied, "What you mean is I am TOO FAT?" To which he just smiled and sat back in his chair.
Most people know that it's sensible to apply sun screen to the skin in order to prevent burning. If the thought of ageing, sagging, sun damaged skin that is rife with age spots is not enough to convince people to apply sun protection, then the very real threat of skin cancer certainly should be.
Last week the Daily Mail featured a letter written by Paul and Jennifer Tonks; it told the inspiring story of how Jennifer had been diagnosed with ME by a Professor in Nottingham and was so severely affected that she was dependent on a wheelchair for three years... until she took the Lightning Process, about seven years ago now, and has been well ever since.
For me, breast cancer is both personal and professional. My sister, Adrienne, has breast cancer. Adrienne's cancer has spread to her bones, known as secondary breast cancer, for which there is currently no cure.
Fattist folk are just unhappy people. That's the truth of it. Happy people don't have prejudices because they don't spend their time fixated on the people that surround them. They just live their own happy lives. All prejudice comes from a deeply unhappy place inside ourselves.
Recently I walked into my local swimming pool at 6.30am. Among the swimmers wiping sleep from their eyes, there was one woman racing up, down, up, down, up, barely raising her head for breath. What assumptions are you already making about her? Keen? yes. Fit? clearly. Thin? no.
In 2010, the billboards promised us that the Tories would cut the deficit and not the NHS. Now, less than a year out from the General election, the NHS is once again the main talking point.

Sleep is vital for so many reasons and not just for world class athletes. There must be good reason why we spend over a third of our lives doing it; when we sleep, and sleep well, the body undergoes a series of physiological and hormonal changes which enables it to repair, grow stronger, realign and rebalance from the exertions of our waking hours.
I definitely don't walk around everyday thinking about how beautiful post-cancer life is, I think about that bastard who pushed in front of me at Upper Crust. You are allowed to grumble, it's cathartic, just don't stomp around acting like the world owes you one.
sually, I work out 4 times a week, and I eat healthily, But, for one week during every month, I am, shall we say, less than vigilant with my food choices! Obviously I don't want the fact that I fall to pieces once a month to sabotage all my other anti-ageing efforts. It's scary to think that for 12 weeks of the year I eat junk and empty calories that do my body no good at all.
