We start this week with Victoria Hancher who is convinced much of the suffering from cancer can be prevented by not just going to the doctor but also getting clued up on healthy lifestyles, most importantly diet and exercise but also looking at state of mind and what role that plays in making us ill. Healthy mind, healthy body and You are what you eat. The pharmaceutical industry has a massive interest in persuading doctors to prescribe their medicines which can twist judgements, orthodoxy and decisions. Vicky also gives us some hints as to good places to look on-line to get good advice on health issues.

Steve Muggeridge has been going round festivals for so long he now organises something called the Green Gathering which is taking place in Chepstow on the first weekend of August. Although he helps organise the green fields at Glastonbury he recognises the free festival ideals have become lost in the modern Glastonbury so he needs to keep his hand in organising a traditional non-commercial ethos festival. After all the original aims of the Stonehenge festivals was a sort of free social gathering along the lines of romantic ideas of Stonehenge being a place where Iron Age man came together without having to pay an entrance fee.
