Foods that soothe Unfortunately, I have the very nasty autoimmune disease scleroderma, and your comprehensive but easy to understand article on dealing with chronic inflammation comes at the right time leading into the cooler months. I’ll be increasing my intake of oily fish, legumes and fruit and vegies, while being extra cautious with any processed foods. Thank you again for your high standards. Barbara Handasyde, VIC Intriguing read As a reader of HFG for many years, I find it intriguing that every issue of your magazine has such interesting articles on a range of topics.

A fertile issue Once again, the March issue of Healthy Food Guide magazine was a great read and I took particularly interest in the ‘Boost your fertility’ article. As a male who’s gone through many heartbreaking years of failed IVF rounds with my partner, fertility is an issue we need to keep on the agenda because, sadly, it is affecting more and more people.

Ode to oats The humble oat could be a saving grace if you’re receiving radiation, according to new research. People undergoing cancer treatment are often advised to avoid a high-fibre diet because it can exacerbate bloating and diarrhoea, two common side effects of radiotherapy. But South Australian and Swedish researchers have recently discovered that eating oat bran can actually offset the gastrointestinal inflammation caused by radiation. Time to tuck into that bowl of porridge or oat biscuit! Nutrients PORTION PERFECTION Take the guesswork out of healthy portion sizes with this handy guide! 74% That’s the number of healthy Australians over the age of 70 who reported taking a supplement daily or occasionally. Most popular were fish oils (to help reduce inflammation and support cardiovascular health), vitamin D, glucosamine and calcium (for good bone and joint health).…
