The world of situation comedy again draws its inspiration from the commercial kitchen with the arrival of ‘Whites’. Staring Alan Davis as Roland White, a talented but lazy head chef who never quite reached the level expected of him. Roland has lost his passion and motivation. Set in a country house hotel the first episode has a few promising moments, but perhaps it would have benefited from a little more time in the oven. A return of the Lenny Henry series ‘Chef’ would have made more welcome viewing. The first episode of Whites is broadcast on BBC2 Tuesday 28th September at 9pm.


The FSA is urgently warning people not to consume Miracle Mineral
(MMS). This product is being sold as an oral supplement and is
also known as Miracle Mineral Supplement. If you have any of this
product you should throw it away. If you have consumed MMS and feel
unwell you should consult your doctor. MMS is a 28% sodium chlorite solution which is equivalent to
industrial-strength bleach. When taken as directed it could cause
severe nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea, potentially leading to
dehydration and reduced blood pressure. If the solution is diluted less than instructed, it could cause
damage to the gut and red blood cells, potentially resulting in
respiratory failure. MMS is available via the Internet. The FSA is warning local
authorities that this product should not be on sale. If you are aware of
MMS being sold in retail outlets, you should contact your local
authority trading standards department.

Picon is a caramel coloured alcoholic beverage developed in 1837 by Gaétan Picon. A popular aperitif in the east and northern regions of France and traditionally served as bitters with beer. It is produced using fresh oranges which are first dried before being blended in a solution of distilled alcohol. Gentian (crystalised violets) and quinquiana (herb flavoured bitters) are then added, followed by sugar syrup and caramel. Picon has an abv of 18% with 70% of the 4 million bottles produced each year being sold in France. It is sold under the slogan: "Il n’est plus une partie du globe où n’ait pénétré le Picon" (There
is no longer any part of the world where Picon hasn’t penetrated.)

Alcopops are loaded with calorie punching alcohol and sugar. Full of artificial colours and flavourings they are a very toxic tipple. As a rule of thumb the brighter the colour the worse it is for you. Go for clear
spirits with soda, tonic or fruit juice and steer clear of the technicolor stuff.
