Researchers at St Andrews and Bristol universities studied the relationship between skin colour and attractiveness, and found people with a yellow skin hue were perceived as particularly healthy and attractive.They also established for the first time that yellow pigments, or carotenoids, from certain fruit and vegetables played a key role in producing yellowness in skin. I have made a pumpkin and carrot soup for tomorrow so even though we are extremely unfit we may look yellow, oops healthy.

An overly high concentration of cancer-causing dioxin has been detected in samples of meat for the first time after it emerged that farm animals were given contaminated feed in Germany. Some of the eggs from those farms were then transported to the Netherlands. "These eggs were mixed with other non-contaminated eggs to make pasteurised liquid egg. This pasteurised liquid egg has been distributed to the UK," To get sick from eating the end product ie quiche you would have to eat 4 tons a day for the next 65 years however if you had a large carrot salad on the side you would take on a yellow hue and look healthy.

The big diet is on so I hope not to bore everyone with tales of weight loss and carrots, I watched a show today on TV called half ton teenager which cheered me up no end as the leads were 800lb, actually it was really disturbing even though they did have nice yellow skin.
