    Over the course of recent years, sugar has had a progressively worse reputation, with the current trend demonising it and presenting it as the cause of every illness from obesity to cancer. But with all of this debate occurring, what’s the truth?

    The Victorians introduced the saying ‘an apple a day keeps the doctor away’ nearly 150 years ago and just in the last few months the Victorians have possibly been proven scientifically and medically correct! A study by a team of researchers at the University of Oxford was published by the British Medical Journal (BMJ) in December 2013. The team used mathematical models to test the old saying and confirmed that by prescribing an apple a day to all adults aged 50 and over could prevent or delay around 8,500 vascular deaths every year in the UK. The study also suggested that this result would be similar to giving statins to everyone over 50 years who is not already taking them. By the researchers calculations, if adults of all ages could manage to eat an extra portion of fruit or veg a day, as many as 11,000 vascular deaths could be averted each year.

    A heavy schedule of exercise, plus the stresses and strains of today’s’ fast pace of life, can take its toll on our health. This can then increase susceptibility to common illnesses. The immune system has evolved to protect us against the many viruses, bacteria and parasites that attack our bodies on a day-to-day basis. This defence mechanism involves many different cell types and chemical messengers and its effectiveness can be influenced by a variety of factors. These include smoking, alcohol consumption, psychological stress, strenuous exercise, nutritional status, age, gut flora and genetics.

    Over the last 10 years, the Paleo and Primal diets have steadily risen in popularity. Unfortunately, alongside this increase in practice, there has also been a great deal of criticism of the 'supposed' science surrounding the claims of these approaches.
