Dominating the news across the UK yesterday was the new report highlighting the link between social drinking and throat cancer. Lead interview for many of the news networks (SKY, ITV etc) was Keith Hern, whose book Bangers and Mash charts his battle against throat cancer.
Keith is now an ambassador for several cancer charities and advocate for moderation. Fellow MX author Alex Buckley agrees. His recent book Lose Weight in 20 minutes has caused quite a stir by stating the obvious – moderation is the key to a healthy lifestyle. The difference with Alex is he shares the ways to achieve moderation. Yesterday his blog article ‘Alcohol Is Cancerous, But Don’t Panic!’ outlined the tactics he used to moderate his drinking – a key part of the plan that helped him lose over 3 stone (20 kilos, 40 pounds) in weight.
We need both advocates like Keith to highlight the dangers of excess in our lives, and sound practical advice like Alex’s to implement moderation.
