SUBO does it again,

Susan Boyle has set yet another record by becoming the first female artist to have a number one album in both the UK and US twice in under a year. 

Her latest album, ‘The Gift’, reached the top spot in the UK on Sunday and was unveiled as the number one in the US yesterday. This comes after her debut album, ‘I Dreamed a Dream’, achieved the same success last year.

The only other artists to have achieved this feat are The Beatles in 1969 and The Monkees in 1967.

Susan Boyle said: "I've never felt happier in all my life. This is an amazing result and one I never expected."

Boyle was launched into the public eye after her audition on popular ITV1 show ‘Britain’s Got Talent’. She performed a remarkable rendition of ‘I Dreamed a Dream’ from the musical Les Miserables.

Popcorn is Good for you! Hooray!

You wished it was true, and now it is:

Popcorn is officially good for you.

According to new research, popcorn and many types of breakfast cereal contain lots of polyphenols, which are antioxidant substances that can have a potentially beneficial role in reducing the risk of heart disease, cancer, and other conditions.

Polyphenols remove free radicals from the body. Free radicals are chemicals that have the potential to cause damage to cells and tissues. They are found in many fruits, vegetables, and other plants, such as berries, walnuts, olives, tea leaves and grapes, as well as in chocolate, wine and coffee.

However, until now no one knew that hot and cold whole grain cereals, which are regarded as healthy for their fibre content, were also a source of polyphenols.

"Early researchers thought the fibre was the active ingredient for these benefits in whole grains, the reason why they may reduce the risk of cancer and coronary heart disease," said Joe Vinson, Ph.D., who headed the study. "But recently, polyphenols emerged as potentially more important. Breakfast cereals, pasta, crackers, and salty snacks constitute over 66 percent of whole grain intake in the diet in the USA."

"We found that, in fact, whole grain products have comparable antioxidants per gram to fruits and vegetables. This is the first study to examine total phenol antioxidants in breakfast cereals and snacks, whereas previous studies have measured free antioxidants in the products," Dr Vinson added.

Whole grain cereals with wheat contain the most antioxidants, with corn, oats and rice cereals following. Raisin bran is even better, because of the raisins.

The study also found that whole grain flours are very high in antioxidants; whole grain snacks have slightly lower levels of antioxidants than cereals; of snacks, popcorn has the highest level of antioxidants; and there is a wide variation in the amount of antioxidants in each class of cold cereal.
