In the 1887-1890 Century the average consumption of sugar was only about 5lbs per person per year!

Cardiovascular disease and cancer was virtually unknown in the early 1900’s.

Now, our sugar consumption has increased to 135lbs per person per year!!!!!

Also between 1939- 1945, during the World War 11, when flour in England was either unrefined or less refined, there was a decline in the death rate of major diseases, such as heart disease.

I am a mum and wife to a lovely caring family. I’ve suffered with chronic back pain for over 30 years and started writing my first blog in 2007 which covered back and chronic pain. Since then I have written many more blogs for myself and customers. I find it takes me away from my pain to another place. I love it so much I think it should be part of a recovery process after illness or surgery. I hope you enjoy reading through my blogs.

      1. Thats good. But so much of our food is processed in one way or another. If we can get good fresh fruit and veges, thats a big help.
