In the past children would spend hours outside playing with their friends - whatever the weather. They were also encouraged to participate in organized school sport, although not all children wanted to. The long summers without school meant children had the freedom to spend all day exploring. But in many cases, modern technology and a growing fear of keeping children safe has changed all that. Today, official figures indicate that (a) in the UK one in every four children in the ...

Woman Scraping Food Leftovers Into Garbage Bin

The old adage of “Waste not, want not” has long gone with the USA wasting 30 to 40% of their food while Britons dump 6 million tons of edible food every year. The wealthier the country, the more food waste there is. In the USA, organic waste is the second highest component of landfills, which are the largest source of methane emissions. That is totally unnecessary. And yet there are people going without even in those wealthy countries. Roughly 80% of discarded food is ...

Many of you will be regularly adding vitamin supplements to your daily diet. In fact researchers have found that those who do take supplements are often much more conscientious than those who have been prescribed pharmaceutical medications. But it is not only the regularity of taking supplements that is important – the time of day can matter too. Some nutrients work best when taken at different times of the day. For example... Breakfast B-vitamins are a great boost to start your day if taken with ...

  Last month, I shared my “open garden” with you. Now it is July and time to tell you about the Open Day we had at the allotment gardens.  An allotment garden in England is usually simply called “an allotment”. North Americans might know it better as a community garden. It is a plot of land made available for individual, non-commercial gardening or growing food plants. Sometimes it is farmers who rent out a portion of their land but often it ...

One of the most important vitamins you can ensure your children are getting (on a daily basis) is of course vitamin C. There are many fruits and veggies that contain vitamin C in abundance and these should be included their diet as much as possible. Animals manufacture vitamin C but unfortunately humans including children do not. Apparently, they lost this ability during the course of evolution. This is the reason why, in the past, cats survived voyages to the New World ...

Eraser deleting the word Cholesterol

Exactly a year ago, I was saying on this blog that cholesterol has been the so called “big baddy” on the health scene for several decades, with the mainstream media and the medical profession alike urging you to cut back on animal fat and switch to low fat products in order to lower your cholesterol – while at the same time taking prescription statins. We also pointed out that, in fact, the exact opposite was the way to go as one ...
