December – Articles of Interest

I hadn’t intended to do anything over the Christmas period, but I have read some interesting articles and abstracts over the last couple of days and I thought I would share them with you.

Newspaper Articles

BBC News – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-25492620

Eating nuts is back in again, the current thinking cycles round ‘yes’ and ‘no’ and we are back on yes again.

Nottingham Post – http://www.nottinghampost.com/MIRACLE-DIET-STOPS-BOY-S-EPILEPTIC-FITS/story-20364205-detail/story.html

Interesting article about ketogenic diets helping to reduce the number of epileptic episodes of a boy in Nottingham.  This caught my eye as I have heard of a couple of children who have fits as an allergic response, so was keen to read more about diet restrictions improving his condition.
