Your LIFE: HEALTH NEWS.

Byline: BY MADELEINE BAILEY

Soya eases sore eyes

SOYA lecithin, an ingredient found in margarine, has been found to cure and prevent dry eye syndrome.

This condition affects up to four million people in the UK and is caused by ageing, contact lenses, central heating, air conditioning and staring at computer screens. Eyes become dry and sore and if not treated their surface layer could end up damaged.

Soya lecithin helps stop the eyes' moisture from evaporating. In a clinical trial of 382 people, 89 per cent of sufferers reported an improvement.

Try Clarymist, pounds 12.95 for 10ml, from pharmacies and health stores, or visit www.savant-health.com.

For hot tots

IT can be tough taking your tot's temperature, especially if they get upset when you try to pop a thermometer in their mouth. But not with the new Mushroom Forehead Thermometer (pictured).

It stores the last 10 readings so you can monitor your child's temperature over a period of time. And you can even use it to check the temperature of a bottle of milk. It costs pounds 24.49, visit www.bosie boo.com or call 0800 180 4225.
