The Modern Phenomenon That Is Food Waste

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 ...

Just about everyone has heard of Viagra and it has been around and available for nearly 20 years. Now there is a version for women which is going on the market in the US on prescription from mid October 2015.  Viagra of course is a that little blue pill. The female version will, not surprisingly, be pink. How does it work? Viagra expands the blood flow to the genitals. This new drug (to be known as Addyi) is manufactured with the aim of boosting ...

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 ...

We have posted blogs on all types of yoga including: yoga for beginners; yoga for arthritis sufferers; yoga for those who want to get rid of cellulite; and yoga during pregnancy. But now it is time for our eyes to have a turn – yes, yoga for our eyes. I have a natural-health-conscious friend who turned to this method when she found her eyes were deteriorating - and she is thrilled with the result. Now she finds that she only needs to do the exercises ...

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 ...

Changing The Chorus On Cholesterol, At Last!

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 ...

Greek Yogurt & Its Ups and Downs

Are you a fan of Greek yogurt? The spelling is yogurt in the USA and yoghurt in the UK (and elsewhere) but the information on this popular health product is the same everywhere. Or is it? Greek yogurt's nutritional superiority has helped elevate this dairy product to super food status in the USA. Its sales have doubled in 5 years but of course with popularity come the less than healthy impostors. What makes Greek yogurt so special? The difference between Greek yogurt and ...

It is no wonder that the majority of the population in the West have become cynical about suggestions from government-backed nutritionists and the media on the subject of “good” nutrition. There have been so many changes of policy over the years, that many just go their own way and use this as an excuse for eating whatever they want to – good or bad. For several decades, Americans ate fewer eggs and other animal products because policy makers and the mainstream ...

We need to keep our skin wrinkle-free from the inside too. Our skin comprises two layers and wrinkles can start in either layer.
