The making of The sulphite connection on Channel Ten News.

Hi folks,

I now have subscribers from all over the world. Hello to all of you beautiful entities in all your wonderful parts of the world.

Today I have a video post (if I can get it to work). It is my journey up to Brisbane and back to do an interview with Channel Ten News.

It was great fun; I did an interview with Channel Ten reporter Chloe. Then I did a cooking piece in the kitchen along with a dietitian named Julie you can view her website here http://www.solutionsfood.com.au

Before you view the video blog I wanted to share with you this email I received today from a lady in the UK. I receive many of these types of emails and to stress a point with you, it is not uncommon for many people to be in the same boat.

Julie (the dietician above) mentioned that sulphite sensitivity is currently about 1% of the population be stresses that it may be more likely 5%. I wish I was asked that question because I would have that figure more like 30%. A big difference yes, but no one have ever bothered to actually do the research and with a HUGE amount of people eating sulphites unknowingly (due to hidden and undeclared sulphites) I think that 30% is being conservative.

1 in 5 now have IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) related problems, Asthma affects 1 in 10 Australians and Ritalin to treat ADHD (attention deficit hyperactive disorder) is one of the fastest growing drugs in Australia today. Sulphites play a HUGE part with all these conditions. Something for you to think about anyway.

Hi Paul

Thanks for your very prompt reply - its midnight here in the UK and I forgot that it would be around midday for you! I have now received the email which gives me access to the first chapter and have downloaded it, thanks very much.

I have had a long running sensitivity to sulphites for over 35 years, and despite trying my best to avoid them (now I know what causes my symptoms), I still feel unwell with symptoms on most days. I am therefore hoping that your book will let me identify those 'hidden' sulphites that I am still being affected by, so thank you very much for your research on this, and well done for making yourself well again - something I dream of!

There must be many thousands of people out there who are unaware of the effect that sulphites are having on their health. My experience of trying to involve the medical profession in the UK is that they are simply not interested. In all the time I have had this allergy I have never been able to get a doctor to help me, or even confirm my allergy with a test.. When it first started at the age of 16 and my mother took me to our GP he said I was perfectly alright and should see a psychiatrist if I carried on insisting I wasn't! For years I suffered in silence having no idea what was causing my symptoms. I feel quite angry that food companies are so reckless with our health.

Best wishes and good luck with your book.
