High-Protein Diets Are as Bad as Smoking? Ignore the Headlines, Stick to the Facts

(5) Comments | Posted March 6, 2014 | 7:00 PM

Fashion and medicine do not make good bedfellows and I sometimes worry that a low-meat diet has become fashionable.

Help Me Sleep: Magnesium Is the Secret for Sleep Problems

(0) Comments | Posted April 25, 2013 | 1:54 PM

Hollywood loves a good pandemic. Whether it's 28 Days Later, Quarantine or I Am Legend, the high-drama plot of a deadly infection is hardly a new concept. But does real life bear comparison to such storylines? Are we being treated to yet another drab sequel?

Regardless of what you have heard since Lance Armstrong staged his confession on Oprah, drugs are everywhere in sport. And regardless of where you stand on the ethics on the issue, they're not going anywhere. They have played a big part in the success of athletes for decades.

Could a single fruit save the world? You might have thought so, considering some of the recent clamour for goji berries. Health-food evangelists have sung the praises of this Himalayan superfood for several years now and they remain a popular snack amongst the Hollywood elite. They cost around £25 per...
