If You Crave Curry You’ve Probably Got Parkinson’s Disease (Says Daily Mail)

SCARE Story of the Day comes to use via the pages of the Daily Mail. Anna Hodgekiss hears the story of 59-year-old Elsie Campbell, “whose breast cancer was detected after she developed an unusual appetite for salad.”
If you like salad you might well have cancer?

The mother-of-two was eating four lettuces a day, prompting her husband Jim, a research scientist, to investigate. He worked out that lettuce contains a natural chemical called sulforaphane, which can attack cancer cells and which breast cancer sufferers often lack. He correctly guessed his wife’s addiction meant she was suffering from the disease.

If you like letter a lot, get to the doctor’s pronto.

And if you like other foods a lot you might also be ill. You probably are.

Jim has since set up question myhealth.com, providing information about other odd symptoms. So, what could your craving be trying to  tell you?
