Joaquin Phoenix Hoax or Breakdown

Joacquin Pheonix
Is Joaquin Phoenix Just Another Actor in Meltdown, or is This a Hoax?

Only time will tell if the decline of Joacquin Pheonix is some elaborate Hoax or his vegan diet is seriously short of V Pure Vegan EPA/DHA essential omega 3 fats and vitamin B12.

Joacquin's interview with Letterman went down as one of those legendary like Russel Harty and Grace Jones, Bill Grundy and the Sex Pistols .......... - ouch.

Joaquin has proven his prowess as a singer in Walk the line but his hip-hop wrappin is kick in the goolies painfull

So has he gone mad? Is he on cheap drugs? Is he drinking again? is he having a nervous breakdown?

The one thing that gives us hope is that faithful Casey Affleck is following Joacquin around everywhere with a camera.

The trouble is Joacquin is that good an actor he is one of the few that could act that role so convincingly - he became Johhny Cash in Walk the Line - he could easily become this sad wreck of his former self - he has enough personal experience to draw on.

As Letterman said - We are sorry you couldn't be with us Joacquin - we hope you will return one day

SALE: Alpro Provamel Soy Milk and Desserts

FOODBEV | Vandemoortele to sell Alpro soy foods division

The Last of the Independents?

alpro provamel soya products up for sale

Vandamoortele the Belgium company that owns Alpro/Provamel has put Alpro up for sale. They say they want to concentrate on the Food service and wholesale part of their business rather than products for consumers.

Alpro have recently re - re-branded their organic range back to the Provamel trademark but with new bright green packaging and a commitment not to sell this range to the supermarkets.

We sincerely hope that Alpro don't suffer the fate of Cranks Restaurants who got killed off (after a string of venture capitalists had bled the company dry) at the end of 2001 after 40 years of leading the world with vegetarian food.

In the hands of the right people Alpro could continue to be a leader in the healthy eating market and make healthy profits. So often companies with strong brands fall into the hands of investors who merely asset strip the company, they fail to understand the unique market products appeal to and the essence of the brand. Their egos deflated they get bored and just rape and abuse the company and it's customers until it fails.

Hopefully an ethically minded company such as Hain Celestial will be able to take the company on and nurture and improve it as they have done with Linda McCartney.

Fat Snowmen - Reality of New Ice Age

fat snowman

New Ice Age Nutritionist Yvonne Bishop-Weston say new research suggests Snowmen and Snow Women are suffering from the same epidemic of obesity afflicting over 50% of the UK population.

A concerted effort to educate snow people about sustainable weight loss diets is now more essential than ever otherwise our Grandchildren may grow up not knowing what a snowman is as they become an endangered species. Apart from increasing the risk of a number of chronic diseases, weight gain, obesity and excess fat can cause infertility.

A good start with weight loss is to eat a diet rich in vegetables and fruit. Aim for at least 5 portions of brightly coloured vegetables a day and 3 portions of fruit.
