One of the most inspirational moments for me this month was chatting to Turia Pitt, who was savaged by burns to her face and body five years ago, and told she’d never walk again. Well, didn’t she proved her doctors wrong! This month, Turia competes in the World Ironman Championships in Hawaii. Her upbeat and positive attitude is one that we can all be inspired by.

It found that 20 popular sour lollies are so acidic, they erode tooth enamel and can burn the cheeks , gums and tongue if sucked for too long.
