NHS 'sleepwalking into stroke crisis' unless more funding found for research into prevention (From HeraldScotland)
A report, by the Stroke Association and carried out at Queen Mary University of London and London School of Economics, estimates that a £10 million investment in research into interventions such as blood pressure management, treatments for atrial fibrillation which increases the risk of stroke, and treatments to prevent haemorrhagic stroke - the deadliest type - would cut by 114,000 the number of people living with a stroke in UK by 2035.

Doctors and patients unaware diabetes can be reversed, says report - BBC News
NHS Scotland T2Diabetes cost 10% of budget // evidence has been known for a decade by now! thoe ppl who treated t2d have been called quacks by "everything in moderation" - the evidence based medicine hubbub. // but the main reason for the low recording is probably that few patients are attempting or achieving remission. - GPs don't have time to worry about patient adherence and some do not want to change and rather take pills (intrinsic motivation, health motivated). / salt sugar fat // &! &! &! &!

National Greatness | West Hunter
As production rose, availability increased. At first, penicillin was largely reserved for US and British military needs. Later, it became available to US and British civilians, and soon after for general usage.

But there was a time window of several months in which American-produced penicillin was available for American wounded but not for French casualties. Fortunately, it happens that penicillin is rapidly excreted in urine. It can be recovered. Between January and April 1945, Rhône-Poulenc extracted penicillin from the urine of wounded American servicemen being treated in hospitals around Paris, penicillin which was then used to treat the wounded of the French Army. They typically recovered about 100 doses from 300 liters of urine.

When American piss is the elixir of life – that is national greatness.
