For the first time in history, despite advances in medical care, the predicted lifespan of our children is less than ours as adults.
Why? .....poor diet and a lack of exercise according to the experts.
Some of the best evidence we have on what we should be eating, to enjoy a healthy and long life, comes from cookbooks written before the 1950s. The type of food our grandmothers were preparing.
There are millions of pages, derived from these old cookbooks, which describe what was being eaten and how it was prepared, at a time when people were living longer than they are now.
