Hello Everyone

Here are some great kids paying tribute to the cover of the Failsafe Cookbook – thanks Jodie!

Failsafe Newsletter 102 headlines an important WARNING about HIDDEN ADDITIVES. Many consumers still don't realise that innocent-sounding names can now be used instead of additive numbers, as this failsafer from New Zealand wrote:

"We are very aware that preservative 282 is the worst of all additives so I'm very grateful for your heads-up...Sure enough, cultured dextrose is listed on the Gluten Free bread that we have been having this week ... and the loaves we normally buy!!!" - Linda from story [1623]

As usual, the reader stories are so interesting. My favourite this time:

"After 5 weeks strict elimination...he was a totally different child - calm, relaxed, focused, went straight to sleep and slept for nearly 12 hours, easy to reason with, increased self control"- Jacqui [1613]

And there are some fascinating facebook threads:

  • longterm food intolerance - "I suffered for 40 years before I discovered my intolerances, my health seems to have reversed...now no drugs at all" - Kath [1622]
  • nose bleeds due to amines - "My nose bleeds have finally stopped ...My ENT has been trying to work out the cause for years!"- Pam [1615]
  • feedback - "...through my daughter's journey i also learned about my own issues with amines and it has made an incredible difference to my quality of life" - Silv [1618]

Don't forget: Sue Dengate's famous presentation "Fed Up with Children's Behaviour" is now available to view for free (1hr 12mins)
