    I think she's got her averages a bit off to be honest, bunny. Apparently we should be aiming for a level UNDER 5 and preferably under 4. Unfortunately for some the level has more to do with genetics than diet, although diet plays its part too. Anyway, 3.5 is just about right so that's great.

    Hi Kitty,what she was saying is the average person whos been tested has an average of 5.5-6.5...with the aim of getting below that..i shouldve probably put that in my post :)

    hope all is well with you! xoxo
