GI News—November 2007

[NOVEMBER COLLAGE]

In this issue of GI News
Diabetes is one of the fastest growing diseases in the world. In fact, it’s one of the largest epidemics humanity has ever faced. November 14 is World Diabetes Day and the focus is children and adolescents with diabetes. Read more about it in Food for Thought. Also this month Dr David alerts us to a potential epidemic – as many as one in three overweight children now have signs of fatty livers. There are also three delicious recipes from our chef Kate Hemphill (do try the Tuna, Bean, Olive & Fennel Salad); our pick of the crop for food for the month – mushrooms and how they can help you trim your waistline; new GI values for jarred sour pitted cherries; and of course our answers to your questions.

Good eating, good health and good reading.
