Unintended consequences: when government health campaigns backfire | Life and style | The Guardian
Meanwhile a second research paper has spotted a flaw in the government’s “responsibility deal” with drinks makers. The industry agreed on reductions in alcohol levels by 2015, but while more low-alcohol products are on offer, things aren’t panning out as expected. Cambridge University researchers have scrutinised how low-alcohol drinks are being promoted by Tesco, Asda, Sainsbury’s and Morrisons and found that consumers are being prompted to buy these beverages in situations where they wouldn’t ordinarily hit the bottle. The drinks are presented as a perfect lunchtime treat, and as healthy options next to pictures of fruit. “Lower-strength wines and beers appear to be marketed not as substitutes for higher-strength products, but as ones that can be consumed on additional occasions with an added implication of healthiness,” wrote the researchers. Make that an “irresponsibility deal” then.

'Wake-up call' over liver disease risks due to weight - BBC News
Scans of nearly 3,000 individuals from the UK Biobank research project showed that 12% had inflamed, fatty livers.

NHS failure is inevitable – and it will shock those responsible into action | Jan Filochowski | Opinion | The Guardian
When this happens, as it is now, pretty much across the board, things don’t get worse by 3% because demand has increased by 3%, they get worse by 50% or 100% because there is no slack left to deal with what is only a 3% increase. And the figures are now showing just this: failure multiplying while demand increases only marginally.

We learn nothing about nutrition, claim medical students - BBC News
Speaking to BBC Radio 4's The Food Programme, Dr Rangan Chatterjee, GP and presenter of BBC One's Doctor in the House, told me: "The health landscape of the UK has dramatically changed over the last 30 or 40 years and I think the bulk of what I see as a GP now - almost 80% - is in some way driven by our collective lifestyles."

Food Standards Scotland chief says NHS at 'tipping point' amid obesity crisis | HeraldScotland
However, the head of Scotland's food watchdog said he believed there was a growing consensus in public and political opinion that a "tipping point" was being reached in the battle against obesity, and that a failure to reverse the crisis would eventually "cripple the NHS". The number of people living in Scotland with Type 2 diabetes has increased by 29 per cent since 2010, to more than 289,000, according to figures published today.

GPs offered cash to refer fewer people to hospital | Society | The Guardian
NHS Coastal West Sussex CCG has offered to give groups of practices working together in its area 50% of savings made from GPs referring fewer patients for dermatology care, ear, nose and throat treatment in the community, and minor surgery and wound closure. [...] Peter Swinyard, chair of the , said: “From a patient perspective it means GPs are paid to not look after them. It’s a serious dereliction of duty, influenced by CCGs trying to balance their books.” [...] would let hospitals treat the most needy cases. [...] The Department of Health and Social Care made clear that no patient should be denied care. “Patients must never have their access to necessary care restricted - we would expect local clinical commissioning groups and NHS England to intervene immediately if this were the case,” a spokesperson said. //&! making GPs ever more unpopular - https://www.theguardian.com/society/2018/feb/28/satisfaction-with-gps-at-lowest-level-for-30-years-survey-finds https://www.theguardian.com/society/2018/feb/27/fifth-of-prescribed-antibiotics-are-unnecessary-study-finds

Blood-thinning drugs designed to cut stroke risk may actually increase it | Science | The Guardian
[big pharma is known to cherry pick patients itself (perfect, just that condition) and cherry pick what to publish ... thus it is no wonder that there might be complications unintended unkowns when you add sicker and more medicated patients - long-term - w new new meds - only tested in single use before by big pharma] Research led by scientists at University College London highlights the problems with polypharmacy – the use of multiple drugs for people with more than one health issue. Older people are especially likely to be on medication for more than one complaint.

Niedersachsen: Antibiotika-resistente Keime in Gewässern nachgewiesen - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Wenn gesunde Menschen mit den Keimen in Kontakt kommen, erkranken sie für gewöhnlich nicht, heißt es beim NDR. Gefährlich kann es aber werden, wenn das Immunsystem durch eine Krankheit geschwächt ist. Auch Neugeborene und Senioren haben ein erhöhtes Risiko, bei Kontakt mit den Bakterien zu erkranken.
