It’s Moustache Season – Movember 2011

The Chaplin, the Handlebar, and the Walrus… there are all sorts of shapes and sizes of moustaches, and in the month of November we see them all. Currently known as Movember, the month where men all around the world grow their moustache with pride, raising money for men’s health. 

The funds raised in Australia go towards the two biggest issues of men’s health today – prostate cancer and depression. All money raised goes direct to the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and beyondblue: the national depression initiative. 

In 2010, over 130,000 Australian Mo Bros and Sistas got on board, raising $25 Million AUD. This year Two Silly Sisters have decided to get behind our fellow Australian Mo Bros and show our support by becoming Mo Sistas. For more information about Movember head to 

Did you know that gluten could affect behaviour patterns? Studies show that symptoms of coeliac can include an inability to concentrate or focus, known as ‘foggy brain’, as well as lack of motivation and irritability. Some doctors think coeliacs, in rare cases, can also be affected by autism, attention-deficit disorder (ADD), attention-deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD), schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and depression. Studies show that these conditions can improve on a gluten free diet. Have a read of this very interesting article on the link between gluten free diets and mental health.
