The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - Body and Soul - - NEWS - – ELIN

Hear the word ‘botox’ and what’s the first thing that springs to mind? For me, it’s frozen fore­heads and re-runs of The Real House­wives. Un­til now, that is. It turns out that as well as eras­ing the years from your face, bo­tulinum toxin has myr­iad ther­a­peu­tic uses that are rapidly gain­ing pop­u­lar­ity in the med­i­cal world – from help­ing to ease mi­graines and de­pres­sion, to putting a stop to teeth clench­ing and cer­tain types of in­con­ti­nence. Our in- depth re­port on page 8 re­veals ev­ery­thing you need to know about how it might help you.

Else­where in this is­sue we look at AGEs, the harm­ful com­pounds in our daily diet that could be mak­ing us all grow old be­fore our time – and the so­lu­tion is as sim­ple as chang­ing the way we cook. It’s a fas­ci­nat­ing read, and will cer­tainly make me re­con­sider eat­ing that burnt toast! Get the low­down on page 4.

Also, I can’t sign off this week with­out men­tion­ing our gor­geous cover star Frankie and her owner Jeremy. The beau­ti­ful story of how this aban­doned pup helped to bring Jeremy back from the brink of despair had us all wip­ing away the tears in the b+ s of­fice.

We’re so grate­ful to Jeremy for his breath­tak­ingly hon­est in­ter­view, not to men­tion Frankie – of­fi­cially one of our favourite cover mod­els of all time. Read their heart­warm­ing story on page 6. Have a great week!
