Cholesterol. Well, my understanding anyway.

I’ve been reading about cholesterol recently and I’ve come to a conclusion: Blaming cholesterol for heart disease is like blaming crime scene investigators for crime. Imagine the government hired a researcher to look into the reasons behind an increase in crime rates. Every time a crime is reported, this researcher goes to the local area […]

Horizon: Eat, Fast and Live Longer

I’ve just watched the BBC Horizon programme on fasting. Unfortunately it wasn’t in the iPlayer any more but I did find it on you tube. Overall I found the programme very interesting, however there were a couple of things I would have liked to have seen. The first thing I think the programme would have benefited from […]

A busy week

It’s been a bit of a week really. In my last post I talked about how tired I was because of work. Well the week only marginally improved and it wasn’t until Friday night where I was able to recover. Oh well. In the meantime I did come across a couple of excellent blogs. The […]

The health section of our bookshops are full of diet books all promising fantastic results. Newsagents, petrol stations and supermarkets have an abundance of […]

Fasting day

Today is a fasting day.Even though I know it’s good for me (I’ll elaborate on this in a later post hopefully), I never approaching it relishing the feelings of hunger and possible weakness. At my church we’ve been called to fast every Thursday, at least until 6pm. We’re doing this for several reasons, but the […]
