Your Body's Warning Signs
Our bodies are quick to warn us if we are suffering from an illness or are lacking in a certain vitamin or mineral.
Do Anti-Depressants Work?
A new study has revealed that millions of people taking commonly prescribed anti-depressants, such as Prozac or Seroxat, might as well be taking a placebo. We take a look at the findings and ask our Relationships Expert, Dr Pam Spurr, for her expert advice.
Fats: good vs bad
Monounsaturated fats are great at lowering levels of LDL (or 'bad') cholesterol while simultaneously increasing levels of HDL cholesterol (the good kind). Foods such as avocadoes, nuts (particularly walnuts, almonds and pistachios) and canola are high in monounsaturated fats. Avocadoes in particular come in for some stick for containing levels of fat which far exceed any other fruit or vegetable; an unfair reputation if ever there was one. Monounsaturated fats actually aid weight loss.
