About Me:

Everything's going to be ok! Seriously.....

I upgraded my PC today with Windows 10. It’s free Microsoft says…….bulls*t.

Ok, I’m a bit of nerd…I actually still read books and like to do sums.

There’s a lot of negative stuff happening in South Africa right now, and plenty that can go wrong; but here’s what I think are two emerging threats to peace and stability in this country over the next ten years…

Trying to turn something so subjective into an objective exercise is a fool’s errant; and yes I have been called a fool too many times to remember.

The thing I find interesting is how News24 stand accused a suppressing freedom of expression because they have exercised their right to control the content of their website.

Anyone seen an advert for fish oil supplements lately?

I was involved in a research study on smoking. The researchers wanted to understand whether better approaches in public health messaging could lower the ‘smoking penetration’ rate.

The other day we were treated to an article about how coffee could be sabotaging our diets.

For those that are connected to the right sources, it’s incredible how much robust evidence is emerging of just how wrong we’ve been about nutrition.

My, my, my… is it just me or are we seeing even more nutritional bull dressed up as science flooding the trusted health journalism portals?

Recently I have come across some very passionate dietary advisors; some have even become quite threatening.
