Smart Phone Addiction

I wouldn’t necessarily put mobile phones in the same category as  tobacco and alcohol when it comes to addiction but some are saying that they clearly need to carry a health warning at least. Maybe ‘Phones make you narcissistic’ isn’t really the catchiest of  messages but it does sum up what  academics in this article are saying about how spending an average of 3.6hrs a day on your smart phone distracts from real life and can...

Margarine v Butter – the new FATs war!

As a child of the 70′s my parents ate butter and all matter of fatty things, regaling stories of how they put dripping on their bread as a snack…to my delicate ears it just sounded totally grim. So growing up in the 80′s obviously I knew butter (urgh!) and decided that I would move on to the newfangled margarines that didn’t have as much fat in them…concious of the need to maintain a good weight (I was a...
