BBC News Review: Poor diet brings back historical disease


In Sydney, Australia, doctors have been seeing patients with a disease called scurvy. Scurvy is a disease caused by a lack of vitamin C, which you find in fruit like oranges and lemons. Sailors on long trips used to get it but you don’t really hear about it these days. The doctors say it’s due to poor diet – people not eating any fruit.

Neil and Catherine teach you how to use the language the world’s media is using to discuss this story.

    To my ear, tuned finely to English having lived here all my 60-odd years, this woman has a slightly strange accent. It's a little but foreign, almost as if she has not lived in the UK all her life. Which goes to show that you should never be embarrassed about you accent, even if it isn't the same as an English person's.
