It is one of those ubiquitous dishes that one has to side-step diplomatically, as a tour manager organising menus for a week of dinners for clients on walking holidays. If you're not careful you could end up with a gastronomic tour of Cape Town's Malva Puddings! That's not to say that it is not a good dessert choice. It is rich, delicious and indulgent and has to be tasted at least once on a gourmet tour... Continue reading

by Joseph Did you know that one in three people will suffer from insomnia in their lifetime? Lack of sleep is no joke, quality of life and long term health.

by Joseph Cancer. The mere utterance of the word strikes fear and anxiety in the hearts of most people. It robs people of energy, health and life. Scientists have learned much about the disease. Molecular testing indicates that some diverse cancers actually originate from the same genes. This means that if medical scientists were able to put those oncogenes out of commission, the cancer would be less likely to spread. Medical researchers are currently investigating the use of a powerful new drug called Entrectinib which would target specific cancer genes thereby reducing tumor growth. As a CureClick Ambassador, I want... Continue reading

10 Tips For Dining Out Submitted by: Meri Raffetto There is no doubt about it; Americans are eating in restaurants more often than ever before. In 1970 Americans spent just 26% of their food dollars on restaurant meals. Today we spend 46% of food dollars on eating out.

The average restaurant portion size is large enough to feed three adults! Furthermore, studies have found a direct association between eating out and higher caloric intakes. This is important...

Studies on human performance indicate that people who regularly skip breakfast may actually experience an energy slump on occasions when they do eat it.Dr Arthur Frank,MD,medical director of the Obesity Management Program at George Washington...

Just as in fashion, home décor goes through fads, and typically if bathrooms and kitchens have not been remodeled for ten years or more, it's... Continue reading
