5.0 out of 5 stars Diets - take them all with a 'pinch of salt' ?, 22 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Hmm.. a book to 'set the cat amongst the pigeons' ..... its well written, easy to read, backed up by good science, but it seems to suggest that almost all the current diet recommendations should be treated with a 'pinch of salt' (not added) - it seems that 'sugar' is the new salt as a modern diet additive. Its main theme suggests that our gut microbes are probably responsible more of of health issues than anyone has realised to date. I think that it also seems that our bodies should be considered more as miniature ecosystems than as slightly different individuals within a species. The insights gained from the plethora of twin study examples certainly suggest that our genes are playing a major role through the epigenetic process ..... so it back to the nature-nurture debate ! Anyhow the take home message seems to be that we should focus on eating good quality food, take as much exercise as time permits, avoid processed foods, and don't expect to find simple answers to losing weight based on correlation type studies ..... Very enjoyable read, great to hear the passion that Tim has in his research and especially his personal efforts to engage in living the good life. I for one, hope that he is successful in living to a ripe old age ... !!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent addition to the 'user manual' supplied by Canon, 22 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent addition to the 'user manual' supplied by Canon, although I'm still working my way through it. It would be really good if someone could take the info in here and put it into a video format - faster and easier to learn from, as this requires a lot of trudging through the basic descriptions of each possible function. Still VERY useful, and at a reasonable price.

I'm a great fan of these Duracell replacements for Canon's own brand - I have used a similar product for my Canon 50D and its been excellent, holding charge well even in cold weather. I hope this does the same in the Canon 7D Mk2 - seems to doing well to date !

Neat operation - spill prooof, yet immediately accessible. It gives a real mouthful when you're thirsty - not the tiny trickle oone gets so often.
