Everything gives you Cancer?

This information came into my inbox from Marine Essentials Vitamin products. Some of this I was aware of, and some of it, I wasn't. There are so many forms of Cancer, and each of it a separate disease in itself, so the best thing we can do is follow a varied diet, with all things in moderation.

In the interests of sharing information, that is important to others, as is one of the aims of this blog, I am posting this information here. I am not in the business of scaremongering, yet, reading the following information does give you more "food" for thought:

Christmas Cookie Recipe – One Batch, Five Different Cookies

I am used to being the sole cook in the kitchen, yet Christmas is always frenetic. There is more people in the house, more to do, more excited conversation, more spontaneity, and thus ever more distractions. This is not conducive to concentrating on the task at hand: i.e. to make seven varieties of cookies following several recipes at once. Adhering to Christmas traditions often mean cooking at least seven different types of biscuits or cookies, for the 'Juletide' feast. In today's fast paced lifestyle, time-poor families need some kind of shortcut if they are to maintain these age-old customs and it was an error or serendipity that created an opportunity to make that happen. This recipe makes at least three, if not four, types of cookies, from the one mix, reducing the workload in the kitchen. [See recipe below.]
