Even in ancient times, people realized that beauty is not a purely external manifestation, but something that comes from within. Neither a ton of makeup, nor an expensive outfit will make a person more beautiful than he is. Another undoubted condition of beauty is, of course, health. A healthy woman will attract attention with her happy look. Health, in turn, depends heavily on what a person consumes. Therefore, it is worth talking about nutrition.

To test this, the British BBC team Trust Me, I‘m A Doctor, organized an experiment. It was attended by representatives of the Scottish National Health System (NHS Highland) and 30 volunteers and scientists from across the country. Dr Michael Moseley says: Continue reading

Indeed, for example, pasta with tomato sauce, pizza and cola, fruit juice with donuts – this is plant food, that is, formally vegetarianism, but such a diet can not be called useful.
