    In 1885 Dr Thomas Allinson began writing a column for The Weekly Times and Echo. His unorthodox views eventually got him struck off the General Medical Council but today his advice seems almost visionary: warning of the dangers of tobacco and alcohol and promoting exercise, hygiene and unprocessed whole foods. This compendium of his advice is a tribute to a man ahead of his time and a fascinating insight into the Victorian world.
