Looks delicious! I'm quite adventurous with food and love Indian, Chinese, Thai, Mexican etc but have never really tried Korean. I've always wanted to try Kimchi (a fermented and spicy vegetable dish usually served as an accompaniment). I like German Sauerkraut, and imagine Kimchi to be similar, but spicy.
Just been watching this YouTube channel by Jason Pierce leung Some mouth watering food, looks amazing.
I have to admit, I'm not a lover of fish with skin on it but I'd happily eat everything else.
Personally, I have no time for alternative medicine. I've heard many claims for the likes of aromatherapy and the healing 'energy' of crystals, but non of it makes sense Scientifically. Admittedly, the lungs can be a pathway for treatment, a good example being Salbutamol inhalers for Asthma. But other than that, aromatherapy is nothing more than 'pleasant smells' as far as I'm concerned. Like the 'healing' energy of crystals, the effects of aromatherapy should be measurable both qualitatively and quantitatively. And, if medical benefits are claimed for them, they should undergo clinical trials.Does this also apply to Aromatherapy?
Yes, I agree that scents could be relaxing. I suppose my brain is always thinking 'how do they work?.Do 'pleasant smells' sometimes act as a sort of relaxant for some people and thus reduce stress which itself can lead to various physical and mental problems?
Thanks for the recommendation, I'll certainly watch that. I was in my very late teens when AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome) first started making headlines in the press. It wasn't until later, that the causative agent HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) was discovered. I was at University at the time and as a straight man, thought that this disease only affected the male homosexual population (in fact, much of the press referred to it as the 'gay plague'). We now know this to be totally untrue and it can be passed on to any part of society through unsafe practices, including unchecked blood transfusions. There were even worries at the time, that biting insects such as mosquitoes could pass on the disease (thankfully not true).Positive on Sky. It is about HIV, since it's 40 years since the first case in the UK. It's an amazing documentary, I'm only in episode 1, but so far its brilliant. Some brilliant insights from Professors, Doctors, Families, people living with it since the 80's, people living with it in the 21st century having caught it recently.
