Superfood salad

We like to have one of these amazing, nutrient-dense salads on the go during the summer (and the winter, for that matter), so we make enough for a few days and keep it in the fridge. We use quinoa (a complete-protein grain with a lovely crunchy texture), lashings of olive oil, lemon juice and rind [...]

Statins – friend or foe?

Have you or a family member been prescribed a statin? Highly likely if you're into middle age - over 6 million people in the UK are on the drug, and Pfizer's Lipitor is the most profitable drug in the history of medicine.

Treat or trick?

We've all seen (or at least heard about) those people back in March this year who were panic-filling their trolleys with fizzy drinks and "goodies" from the snack aisles to keep the kids happy.

Propaganda that makes you sick

A recent tweet by the UK PM's official account suggested that we entertain ourselves by baking. It appears the Great British Public don't need much encouragement on that front, as replies to the tweet complained that flour was in short supply in shops. But the government's seemingly harmless exhortation to eat cake and carry on [...]

What about the immune system?

Viruses are everywhere. There are an estimated 380 trillion viruses inhabiting our bodies (here's a very interesting article about the human virome). There's a lot of talk about treating viral disease at the moment, and about developing vaccines, but generally in the mainstream media there is very little information on our own innate resources. I [...]

Viruses and cellular nutrition: an immunologist’s perspective

Studies as far back as the 1960s and 70s looked at the higher rates of infection in malnourished children in developing countries in comparison with those who were adequately nourished. These were epidemiological (population) studies. But laboratory research has been demonstrating the role of micronutrition in cellular immunity for decades, too. "There's no virus that [...]
