Let's bee honest (sorry!), we
feel more friendly towards
bees than we do wasps, and
for good reason -- they give us
honey. Read more on p.14.
MAKING CARBS COUNT: HONEY
A hot drink that uses peanuts, and
a new range of savoury snacks
that claim a healthy origin, as well
as a new super-strength Omega 3
oil. Read about it on p.6.
Ithink that this year will see diabetes in the news
even more than before. There is now a groundswell
of interest and informtion about how added sugar as
well as fat in our diets is directly linked to the raise in
Type 2 diabetes. While we know that Type 1 is not related
to diet, we also know that the sugars we consume can be
directly tracked by blood testing. When it came to editing
this issue, there was so many relevant news stories, that
I decided to make the main feature about diabetes in
the news (page 8). There's also an update on the World
Health organsations' new directive on sugar (page ), and
a separate look at the nature of honey in Making Carbs
Count (page 14).
