by Leisa on May 12, 2015

After writing yesterday’s post about the “Paleo Pete” story on A Current Affair, the comment made by the host after the close of the segment, got me thinking.

by Rhianna on January 14, 2013

How many times have you heard the word “diet” today? Maybe you saw it on TV, perhaps on the covers of the magazines on the coffee table, or on food packaging. How many of your friends and family have talked about “going on a diet” after Christmas? I don’t think a day goes by where

The article talked about the suggestion by Professor John Dixon, that severe obesity be classed as a chronic medical condition, requiring drugs and surgery to be treated
