Happy Easter from Pulse

The approach to Easter is marked by Lent, a time which some give up the stuff we all enjoy, cakes, sweets, chocolate, alcohol, etc. The newspapers are filled with advice on what we should eat or drink to stay healthy.

The advice can be baffling. One moment eating butter is the sure way to an early grave; the next a healthy diet must include generous quantities of the stuff. Wine is no good for you, then it is good for you provided its red or white (but never Rose!)

The sister of one of the Pulse Team, who lives in France, was summoned to see her doctor when she became pregnant. The doctor looked at her sternly. “On the subject of alcohol “he said “you must drink red wine but no more than one bottle of good quality per day!” That is our kind of doctor!

During all these varying strictures Pulse underwriters stand firm on one issue. Smoking.

The single most beneficial thing any smoker can do to improve their health is to give up smoking. In previous posts on smoking we have reminded people that the concerted efforts by governments to reduce smoking has saved more lives than the invention of antibiotics!

Of course, giving up smoking is not easy, nicotine is potently addictive. Although the jury is still out on the long-term effects of vaping, and Life underwriters remain cautious, it must surely be encouraged if it can help break the smoking habit. One of our own underwriters managed to give up a 25 a day habit by using e cigarettes, when all other cessation methods had failed him in the past.

We cannot offer terms to all who come to us; however, we will do our best to assist in all circumstances.
