Last year there was a presentation at your school about ‘How to Identify Infantile Diabetes’. It was pretty scary. The one aimed at parents was on the other hand practically incomprehensible. Lots of elderly fat men whose names appeared to start with ‘Professor Doctor’ were narrating incomprehensible medical facts. They seemed to imagine they were talking to fifth year medical students rather that the wives of the Zabita and bakal owner. Anyway that didn’t really matter because the whole film seemed to consist of adults shouting earnestly at the audience, so it must have done some good – even if as people left they said they hadn’t understood anything.

The incredible thing was that we walked for around two hours today and that doesn’t count times spent drinking juice or waiting in hospitals and at the end of this I could easily have continued for another two.
Ten days is the limit of many who attempt juice fasting. By now all the plasma cells in my body should have been replaced, (but not the white and red blood cells). Irem has stopped the medication she takes for Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, which is endemic in Turkey. She tells me that, after a week juice fasting, her gland is no longer hard or evident when she probes for it.
