What’s a Calorie? How Is It Used?..

0 Comment

What is a calorie? A question that baffles so many! Though we are constantly bombarded with ‘low-calorie’ messages from all sorts of media, it is getting progressively harder for us – the public – to explain what a calorie actually is. If you can tolerate my terrible filming, there is a video of my mug […]

The Government and The Farmers

0 Comment

Why does the government advise a healthy diet? This government intervention aims to give everyone a basic education on how to live healthily, not only for the benefit of our own personal quality of life because a healthy person is usually a happy person but also, which is more likely an influence for our parliament, […]

The Nutrient Guidelines Explained

0 Comment

There are lots of different guidelines for many different things regarding health, but there must be some standard by which the average person can follow in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle. As there are so many different statistics and surveys, I will be explaining what is what and why we have them, including how […]

The Digestive System

0 Comment

I’ve put this info on here not as a massive point of relevance in itself, but more for its relevance regarding more directly applicable subjects, such as detoxification, protein absorption, lipid digestion, gastric clearing and that ever persistent pain in the backside that is the topic; digestive leucocytosis. I won’t be going into too much detail […]

Basic Biology 101: Molecular Transport (Diffusion-Osmosis-Active Transport)

0 Comment

The world and its works is a pretty complex idea, yet, so many of its attributes and processes boil down to some painfully simple ideas; the process of moving tiny particles between cells of humans and plants alike is such a vital one that without it nothing would ever survive, but it’s so painfully simple! […]

8 Basic Guidelines For Great Health

0 Comment

The UK. Britain. Good ol’ Blighty. This small collection of countries has been a global power since before your mum was born, and one of our greatest attributes is the food. Through invasion from the Vikings, the Romans, the Normans, and – in more recent years – immigration from the Jewish, the Italians, the Vietnamese, […]

Basic Biology 101: Cell Membranes

0 Comment

I have spoken about cell membranes and their significance before, saying that without them we would just be a puddle full of chemicals, and in the lipid structure post (read through here) I spoke about phospholipids and how they make up the bulk of the cell-surface membrane. If you haven’t read the post on lipid […]

Basic Biology 101: Lipid Structure

Fat. Some of us less of it, some of us have more, but either way or edge way we all need it. It plays many roles in the proper functioning of any healthy mammal, so I think it is definitely worth knowing a little bit more about it. I have put this article under Basic […]

Basic Biology 101: Cell Structure

0 Comment

Cells are pretty tiny things. They’re so small they’re impossible to see with the naked eye, yet, somehow, they are responsible for keeping our whole body working by each doing their own job while in unison with all other cells in the body… But a cell isn’t just a cell. A cell contains even smaller […]

Basic Biology 101: Enzymes

0 Comment

Enzymes are a functional protein, responsible for catalysing (speeding up) a reaction. Most processes tend to involve enzymes, as they are very specific and vastly improve the efficiency of a process. Enzymes function by a general idea known as the ‘lock and key’ model: Each enzyme has a section within it that acts like a […]
