Celiac Disease Among UK Kids Has Tripled

TIME

Over the last 20 years, celiac disease, an autoimmune reaction to gluten, has tripled among children in the United Kingdom, a new study shows.

The new data, published in the journal Archives of Disease in Childhood,shows that while 1% of all kids in the U.K. have blood markers for the disease, there are socioeconomic disparities among who gets diagnosed.

Researchers looked at data from a U.K. database called the The Health Improvement Network (THIN) which collects public health records. The researchers looked at all children in the system from birth to age 18 with a general practitioner between the years 1993 and 2012. That came to a total of 2,063,421 kids, of which 1,247 were diagnosed with celiac. That came out to about one new case of the disease in every 10,000 kids every year.

What I use in my 4c hair

20150128_142218

So like I’ve posted before, I’m a student on a limited budget; can’t afford to try or buy expensive products such as Shea Moisture so I have to keep it simple. Products you may not recognise: in the green cover container contains my very favourite whipped shea butter recipe (shea butter, castor oil, jojoba oil, coconut oil and olive oil whipped together with a hand mixer), in the small bottle is Jamaican Black Castor Oil or JBCO as its known and in the spray bottle is green tea.

Over time, I have learned that my hair HATES coconut oil so now I use it to either mix in my deep conditioner or in my whipped shea butter.

Lets Eat India! – Northern Episode

The Jalebi Express

Dad and I love our food and India is a paradise for the hungry traveler.  From street snacks to fine restaurant fare, wedding banquets and vegan burgers on the beach, we’ve done our best so far to eat India!  Here are a few highlights:

Dads first thali (set dinner served on a steel plate) in the famous Sravan Bhavan - Connaught Place, Delhi Food from Tamil Nadu with Puri (deep fried breads), Sambar (like a soup, heavy in the tamarind) and loads of coconut based curries Dads first thali (set dinner served on a steel plate) in the famous Sravan Bhavan – Connaught Place, Delhi
Food from Tamil Nadu with Puri (deep fried breads), Sambar (like a soup, heavy in the tamarind) and loads of coconut based curries and chutneys.  Southern food is lighter and less spicy than northern food.  More rice, less flat breads generally.

Jalebis!!!!!!!!!!! Jalebis!!!!!!!!!!!

Thali no. 2 - A smorgasbord of Gujarati and Rajasthan specialities.  Radjhani Restaurant, Connaught Place again. The sheer weight of dishes here makes it hard to convey, the waiters wash your hands with rose water from an ornate decanter before diving in.  Probably about 50 delicacies, free flowing and a taste overload. Thali no. 2 – A smorgasbord of Gujarati and Rajasthan specialities. Radjhani Restaurant, Connaught Place again.
