DIABETES sufferers in Weston-super-Mare will be given a helping hand next week when a health stall dedicated to helping people with the disease comes to town.

Bristol-based health charity, the Vegetarian &; Vegan Foundation (VVF), is hosting the stall on Thursday, March 15, from 11am-3.30pm, in the Italian Gardens.

VVF health campaigner, Veronika Charvatova, says: “We will be offering free nutrition advice and diabetics will be able to find out about our D-Diet plan which has already been very successful in improving the health of diabetics and even reversing the condition.

“There will be lots of other free materials available, aimed at helping people with various other health problems including heart disease and breast cancer, plus information for children and pregnant women, healthy eating guides and fact sheets about improving your nutrition.”

For more information about the VVF visit www.vegetarian.org.uk or call 0117 570 5190.

Dr. Justine Butler
I joined Viva! as a health campaigner in 2005 after graduating from Bristol University with a PhD in molecular biology. My scientific training helped me research and write numerous reports, guides and fact sheets for Viva! including Meat the Truth, Fish-Free for Life, One in Nine (breast cancer and diet) and the substantial report on the detrimental health effects of consuming dairy; White Lies. This accompanied Viva!’s report The Dark Side of Dairy which spelt out the inherent cruelty of dairy farming. We were the first UK group to take on the dairy industry in this way, and many of our supporters go vegan after reading these reports.
