The more milk you drink, the healthier and stronger your bones will be right? Well this is not the case according to a recent study that has linked drinking three or more glasses of milk a day to dying prematurely. This type of evidence should leave government officials and healthcare workers rethinking how much they try to push the so called ‘good white’ stuff.

High Milk Consumption Study Published in the BMJ

This surprising study, conducted in Sweden, published in last month’s edition of the British Medical Journal examined whether high milk consumption could be associated with mortality and fractures in women and men.

It was conducted across 3 counties in Sweden, where 2 community based cohorts were used, a group … Read More

I am a huge fan of coconut oil and have been for many years now since I learnt that cooking with vegetable oils (especially to the high temperatures most of us do), is bad news for our health.

You see the thing is most vegetable oils including sunflower and olive oil, are really delicate structurally. So as soon as they are heated to high temperatures, their chemical structure changes and becomes something totally different to the vegetable oil you first knew when it hadn’t been subjected to heat. The end result for vegetable oil is a toxic substance. There is no other word for it.

Coconut oil isn’t like vegetable oils, and is far more robust if you like structurally. … Read More

We all have demons to battle in this life. Except some of us choose to use food to exercise these demons. Using food to make you feel happier can quickly cause many health problems, including weight gain and depression. This kind of self abuse needs addressing and stopping before it stops you.

Learn to Accept You Have a Problem

Food can be used in two ways – one is to abuse the body and make it tired, overweight and trigger some scary diseases and the other is to create incredible health where you thrive. There is no in-between when it comes to food.

What kind of relationship do you have with food? Perhaps this is the first time you have ever been asked … Read More

Do you suffer from chronic gas, bloating, poor memory, constipation, feeling nauseous, have been diagnosed with IBS or even eczema? Even if you have just one of these symptoms then it is extremely likely the cause could be coming from your diet, and that a food intolerance could be to blame.

What is a food intolerance?

The area of food intolerance is a little more controversial than that of food allergy. This is because food allergy is quite straight forward to diagnose, as symptoms typically range from skin reactions that includes itching, rashes, swelling, vomiting diarrhoea and respiratory symptoms such as coughing and sneezing, a blocked or runny nose, to asthma – all of which show up almost immediately after the offending … Read More

Since the 1950′s, women’s bodies have ballooned in size. Back in the 1950′s the woman’s average waist size was 27 inches, where as today it is 34 inches. With the average dress size for a woman being a 12, and today it is a size 16. 

Of course we cannot ignore the fact that rationing was still happening until the year 1954 in the UK due to World War 2, but this aside, there are still many other vital reasons why women have gotten much bigger waists on average today in such a short space of time in evolutionary terms.

Less Chance to Graze

Not every household in the 50′s owned a fridge. This meant women during this time were not able to over … Read More

Who doesn’t love a spotlessly clean house? Apparently your newborns immune system if its too clean.

As according to a study published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, only 8 percent of children who suffered from allergies and wheezing had been exposed to homes rich in allergens and bacteria in their first year of life. And by contrast, 41 percent in the study who were allergy and wheeze free children grew up in homes that were full of allergens and bacteria.

For a long time the medical profession had been suggesting pregnant women take part in yoga as they had assumed that it could help reduce stress in mothers. Now, thanks to a new study, this assumption has been proven.

This is the first time the benefits of yoga in pregnant women has ever been studied and came from the University of Manchester who worked with colleagues in Newcastle. The study was funded by the baby charity Tommy’s, and at the end of the study the team were able to conclude that women who attend just one yoga class a week for eight weeks had lowered anxiety levels when compared to those women who received the standard antenatal treatment.
