by Leisa on October 20, 2015

When the president of the NSW branch of the Australian Medical Association is called upon to give his “expert” opinion on the “serious health risks” of vitamins and supplements (because we all know how much training medical doctors do on health and nutrition), on a morning national television program, you have to wonder about the

The “New Boom” – Cattle As A Commodity

by Leisa on October 18, 2015

From Sixty Minutes: “There’s a new boom sweeping across Australia and it’s attracting the shrewdest brains and fattest wallets in the land. It’s beef – it has been branded the new iron ore, and it’s big business. Where mining was the only show in town, now, the cattle industry is riding high. After years of

Open Mining Pit

I saw a very disturbing interview about the Abbott government’s proposal to change laws to prevent environmental challenges to large developments on the 7.30 Report two nights ago. I thought I would see massive outrage on the internet about it, but somehow the frightening implications of this law change have been seemingly overlooked. As reported

The Real Cost Of Food

by Leisa on June 16, 2015

There have been stories recently on the ABC that have revealed the extent of the slavery conditions that migrant workers are subject to whilst working on Australian farms harvesting fruit and vegetables – mainly for the large supermarket chains and fast food restaurants. Four Corners produced an excellent and insightful program called “Slaving Away” and

Fear-mongering: The Flu Vaccine Farce

by Leisa on June 15, 2015

There are many medical procedures and tests that I am quite sure that I will never partake of – mammograms are one of them, the Gardisil vaccine another, and one of the most ridiculous of all that I am quite certain I will never, ever subject myself to – the flu vaccine. The flu vaccine

Juicing Versus Supplements

by Leisa on May 26, 2015

I love juicing. Fresh juices are my favourite things to drink, and every single day I have about a litre of fresh juice – combinations such as beetroot, celery, lemon, apple and ginger or cucumber, mint, pineapple, kale and lemon. The varieties you can have are only limited by your imagination (and what you have

The Delightful Dr. Fred

by Leisa on May 26, 2009

This past week I was fortunate enough to have hosted Dr. Fred Bisci and his friend and promoter Rory, on the Gold Coast leg of their national tour.  And what a privilege it has been! For the first couple of days though, the Gold Coast turned on the worst weather imaginable – with South East QLD

That New Fad “Raw Diet”

by Leisa on May 12, 2009

I love reading old books on health and food, and find some of the concepts and ideas absolutely fascinating!  Some are just plain wrong, and it can be really funny to read how adamant some of the writers are about their particular point of view – and with the limited information that they had at

J is for Juicing!

by Leisa on December 16, 2008

I love juicing. It is such a boost for the body, drinking those concentrated nutrients and pure water to nourish our cells without our body having to do very much digestive work at all. The best juices are green, with only small amounts of sugary or sweet vegetables or fruits such as carrot, beetroot or apple.
