Food lists that can help slow down your ageing

    Ageing is a natural phenomenon which everyone has to go through, but consuming dark chocolates or blueberries can help slow down the process with better results, says an expert. Vikas Jain, fitness and health connoisseur at Anytime Fitness, has shared a list of five super food that can actually make a difference to our body system. Olive Oil: It is a good source of MUFA (monounsaturated fatty acids) and omega 3. A serving of olive oil will give you the daily dose of healthy fats. Cooking in olive oil damages the structure of olive oil and it converts it into a saturated fat. Olive oil is also excellent source of polyphenols which are strong anti-oxidants which are needed to balance the free radicals. Yogurt: It is an excellent source of protein and calcium.

Malnutrition and other Victorian diseases soaring in England due to food poverty and cuts

    Cases of malnutrition and other Victorian diseases are soaring in England, in what campaigners said was a result of cuts to social services and rising food poverty. NHS statistics show that 7,366 people were admitted to hospital with a primary or secondary diagnosis of malnutrition between August 2014 and July this year, compared with 4,883 cases in the same period from 2010 to 2011. A rise of more than 50 per cent in just four years. Cases of other diseases rife in the Victorian era including scurvy, scarlet fever, cholera and whooping cough have also increased since 2010, although cases of TB, measles, typhoid and rickets have fallen. Malnutrition cases in English hospitals almost double in five years Chris Mould, chairman of the Trussell Trust, which runs a nationwide n...

South China Sea: Beijing not frightened to fight a war after US move

    China is not afraid of fighting a war against the United States in the South China Sea, a state-run newspaper with links to the Communist party has claimed. Twenty-four hours after Washington challenged Beijing’s territorial claims in the region by deploying a warship to waters around the disputed Spratly archipelago, the notoriously nationalistic Global Times accused the Pentagon of provoking China. “In [the] face of the US harassment, Beijing should deal with Washington tactfully and prepare for the worst,” the newspaper argued in an editorial on Wednesday. “This can convince the White House that China, despite its unwillingness, is not frightened to fight a war with the US in the region, and is determined to safeguard its national interests and dignity.” The People’s Li...

Heavy rains this morning could lead to localised flooding in parts of London: the southeast and the east, according to the Met office

    David Cameron has announced an urgent review of the powers of the House of Lords after the Government came within a hair’s breadth of suffering a second damaging defeat at the hands of peers in 24 hours. The Prime Minister has made clear his fury after plans to cut spending on tax credits by £4.4bn were thrown out by the Lords, arguing that the rejection of the measure by the unelected chamber raised a “constitutional issue”. The problems he faces in the Lords, where the Tories are heavily outnumbered by Labour and Liberal Democrat peers, were underlined again when the Government narrowly avoided defeat over changes to the electoral register. Ministers face another tight vote in the Lords on Wednesday as the EU Referendum Bill returns to the Upper House. Opposition peers a...

London Weather: Met office warns of localised flooding amid heavy rains

    Heavy rains this morning could lead to localised flooding in parts of London, the southeast and the east, according to the Met Office. The forecasting service issued a severe weather warning for areas from Kent up into Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire, warning that parts of the country could see as much as 10mm of rain in an hour. In places that could be as much as 30mm in only a few hours, the Met Office warned. The severe weather warning follows bursts of heavy rain in parts of the southeast and east of England, with fallen Autumn leaves impeding drainage. Rain in the southeast is expected to clear away by mid-afternoon, moving northwards up to Yorkshire as the day goes on and into southern Scotland by about 6pm. Things started off drier in the west, with fog and low clo...
