Let’s Talk About Sex

Once a taboo subject, sexual health is something we’re learning to talk about more openly. But despite increased awareness around sexual health it can still be neglected for all sorts of reasons.Rather than worrying unnecessarily or following unfounded advice let’s open up the conversation even further to support our sexual health as well as our partners. This week’s Food For Thought sees Dr Doireann O’Leary and I discuss what sexual health encompasses, the myths surrounding it and how we can look after ours.


Are You Addicted To Caffeine

Caffeine has firmly cemented its place in many of our lives on a daily or even hourly basis.

Habits Of Healthy Eaters

It’s hard to believe there was ever a time when diet books didn’t exist, when home-cooked meals were the norm not the exception, and when people intuitively ate what was good for them. With the plethora of information available today about food, diet and nutrition, we should all be healthier than ever, but instead we’re just more confused about what to eat or not to eat! This week’s Food For Thought sees personal trainer Graeme Tomlinson and I go back to basics and why food should always be seen as a source of enjoyment.
