Went to a local restaurant the night before last. Ate tandoori chicken with my fingers. Next morning my digits looked like I had been smoking for decades, such was the extent of the yellow-brown stain. The stain would not go away despite my scrubbing. Then my chin broke out in red blotches, and I felt awful all day yesterday. Feeling OK today. Do not usually blog about my health, but my worry is the level of colouring agents in food in this country. Every time I buy food at supermarkets I find myself focusing on the labels. One of my concerns is the high percentage of salt in many products. Indeed, people pay more for lower salt levels: Two identical products vary in price based on the amount of salt!
