Back in the late autumn of 2010 we were made aware of the plight of a young girl named Millie D'Cruz. Millie had been diagnosed with an incredibly rare genetic illness, so rare that only 17 people in... More > the UK have been diagnosed with it. Metachromatic leukodystrophy (MLD) is caused by a deficiency of the enzyme arylsulfatase A, this impairs the growth or development of the myelin sheath. Our vision was to produce a book filled with recipe's that you cook off the top of you head, your speciality dish mixed in with dishes that were child friendly for them to enjoy making. All proceeds from the sale of this book are going to the Help Millie fund for treatment to ensure Millie has the best possible quality of life.< Less

The cause of multiple sclerosis has puzzled the medical profession since it was first identified as a specific disease in the early nineteenth century.

More > at birth and that's it. Every neuron is capable of sprouting up to 20,000 dendrites if they are nourished properly and stimulated. In addition to neurons, we each have up to 900 billion glial cells which develop myelin, the sheathing that wraps around neuron axons. Axons are the nerve pathways that send messages from neuron to neuron. We grow new brain cells in the cerebellum, the lobe in the back of the brain that is responsible for motion, moving our bodies and muscle control. The neurons, glial cells and new brain cells in the cerebellum all depend on what we feed our bodies with. If the pregnant mother is undernourished and further damages her body by taking drugs, smoking, drinking alcohol, etc., the baby will not be born with the normal expected 100 billion neurons.< Less
