This text was originally published in Orlando Magazine Issue 3, Beyond the Body. You  can read more about this incredible magazine, and wider project, by  Philomena Epps, at their website here. You can also read a bit more about the context of it in the overview of the project in which it sits, The silence of the organs.

                I also turned the text into part of the manuscript which I am still creating (see here and images below), in which alongside contributions from other artists, I am turning a number of my texts around around health and food into embroidered,illustrated, and collaged pages.
