healthy diet and poverty
Unplugged from food corporations I've heard some alarming tales from friends who work with people trapped in poverty and debt. The worst cases, due to the tax and benefits nightmare orchestrated by successive governments, are all people working full-time. Usually, they are working so many hours that they find it difficult to make the best decisions about what to eat. Understandably, when

eating healthy on a budget
Recent shopping trips have made two facts very plain:  1. Many customers, much younger than I, look extremely physically unfit/ or unwell.  2. Many customers look and sound bewildered when deciding what to buy  They would be less vulnerable to the mischief of food corporations' TV advertising and packaging if they had a list. Even better if it is a " food for wellbeing on a budget"

The report defines 'disease burden' as premature death or years "lived" with ill-health and or disability.

peanut allergy in children
