    Thanks Gilli, I did enjoy that. Particularly "“There isn’t really that much evidence that links what you eat with heart disease...."

    i had my carers medical last week, all good signs, cholesterol down, blood pressure down, oh hang on a minute the nurse said, the goal posts have moved 150/90 is now too high for a 68 year old retired builder and weightlifter, and you don't want statins?, ah well just cut down on the fats and alcohol and you will be fine? now then how is that for a NHS trained nurse advising a meat eating patient on how to take care of himself after 68 years.

    Well done Edmund on being so healthy.
