For goodness sake, no more...

...advice on how to live our lives!
Too little or no jogging can shorten our life-span Roll eyes
Quote
U.S researchers found that the people who live for the longest are those who do a moderate amount of exercise.
This amounts to two to three hours of running a week, Health Day reports.

Now we need 7 portions of fruit or veg
Quote
A study of 65,226 men and women indicated the more fruit and vegetables people ate, the less likely they were to die - at any given age.
Seven a day cut the risk of dying from cancer and heart disease.
But the government says its "five-a-day" advice is sufficient and that many of us struggle to achieve even this.

So much conflicting information 'out there'!
Years ago I remember reading how bread and potatoes were good for health then, in the 80's I think, they were deemed bad for you.
Life should be for living to the best we can to enjoy it to the full how we, as individuals, want to.
Or we could all live in bubbles eating our 7 a day, jogging between 17.14 and 25.71 minutes a day, and never actually making contact with anyone in fear of 'catching something'

Agreed, Mav.
I think a positive mental attitude and freedom from stress are far more important than fretting about the latest food 'advice'.

I remember a doctor paying a home visit to my dear old Gran and strongly recommending a bottle of stout a day.
We even used to buy her fortified wine with extra iron.

to sterilise the teat, treat wind, and if you were a true believer then dipping the dummy into gin regularly was to aid the child in avoiding an untimely accident at the hands of an overly harried parent .....
coincidentally gripe water was at one stage not so long ago neat gin, and all of my offspring were introduced to the sleep aiding effects of dummies dipped in whisky of a night time if they were being particularly restless .....
just because your paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you
