the anterior cingulate, Rogalski notes, was also thicker in superagers than in average 50- and 60-year-olds.

Prostate cancer deaths overtake those from breast cancer - BBC News
The number of men dying from prostate cancer has overtaken female deaths from breast cancer for the first time in the UK, figures show. An ageing population means more men are developing and dying from the disease. Prostate Cancer UK says advances in the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer are paying off, and increased funding could benefit prostate cancer. The biggest cancer killers in the UK remain lung and bowel cancer, with prostate now in third place. The latest figures from 2015 show there were 11,819 deaths from prostate cancer compared with 11,442 from breast cancer. //&!

NHS trusts now imposing cruel new pain tests for hip op | Daily Mail Online
[significant impairment as w transgender healthcare] Op 'rationing'
The Daily Mail says strict rationing rules being used by three quarters of NHS hospitals means patients in need of a replacement knee or hip must have to use a walking stick or wheelchair before they will be considered for surgery.

The paper says patients can be rejected for surgery unless they are judged to be in distress for most of the day, unable to sleep, or continually taking painkillers.

It adds that patients who are told they can't have an operation are advised to install hand rails at home, perform stretches or buy special shoes.

Calls for mandatory health information on alcohol labels - BBC News
He accused alcohol producers, of wishing "to withhold information on alcohol and health from the public".

"It is clear from this research that the public want labels to include the drinking guidelines, and we know from our own research that 81% of the public want to see the guidelines on labels. Producers should accept this.

"We all have a right to know the drinking guidelines, along with the risks associated with alcohol, so that we are empowered to make informed choices about our drinking."
