International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    BBC Radio 4's You and Yours programme today featured a piece on butter making a comeback. (I personally consumed margarine due to being a vegan, but now use coconut oil.)
    The item starts at 13.38 and features Dr Aseem Malhotra, a well-known fat (in food!) enthusiast.

    Rather bemused by the chef enthusing about the Maillard reaction though, which I believe is NOT a good thing.

    Reminds me of a nutritionist who suggested I use margarine instead of butter because "it has vitamin A and D added!" He had no clue that those were added to margarine in an attempt to mimic the vitamin content in butter :p

    Every apple pie crust should be made with lard instead of butter or shortening.
