Alcohol and Cancer

Alcohol – Is It Doing You Good or Doing You Harm?

I have for many years now taken the position that alcohol is a poison and causes serious harm to the body. I have felt that it is incredibly misleading for science and doctors to tell people that it is OK to have a glass of wine or two a day as it is good for heart health when they do not consider the damage the alcohol is doing to people’s bodies.

Calcium and Dairy

Seeing as I do dentistry for a living it's not surprising that I am often asked about calcium and whether to take supplements or not, or whether drinking more milk is the answer. Personally I do not recommend calcium supplementation as it is easy to consume enough calcium from our diet via green vegetables, seaweed, nuts and seeds and so forth. Notice I did not mention milk or diary in my suggestions. Now there is a good reason for this and that is whilst dairy may contain calcium it is not adequately absorbed by your body.
