For black women, cutting your hair off is political - as I and the star of a new Netflix drama well know | Fashion | The Guardian
The gravity of a black woman deciding to cut her hair off and go “natural” in a white supremacist society (yes, ours) should not be underestimated. Almost every black hairdresser I visited before finally plucking up the courage to cut my hair off told me I was making the wrong decision, but it was a reminder of how deeply entrenched these views are.
This isn’t just about looks: our wider history is stained by instances such as the apartheid-era pencil test in South Africa – those who could hold a pencil in their hair without it falling out could not be classified as white. To this day, black women and girls lose job offers and are sent to detention or are suspended because our hairstyles don’t suit white sensibilities.

Hillary Clinton's book has a clear message: don't blame me | Thomas Frank | Opinion | The Guardian
She seems to have been almost totally unprepared for the outburst of populist anger that characterized 2016, an outburst that came under half a dozen different guises: trade, outsourcing, immigration, opiates, deindustrialization, and the recent spectacle of Wall Street criminals getting bailed out. It wasn’t the issues that mattered so much as the outrage, and Donald Trump put himself in front of it. Clinton couldn’t. [...] But by and large, Clinton’s efforts to understand populism always get short-circuited, probably because taking it seriously might lead one to conclude that working people have a legitimate beef with her and the Democratic party. &! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-41244474 &! https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/sep/12/hillary-clinton-supporters-memoir-book

Bowel cancer cause: Western high meat fatty diet 'causes tumours to grow' | Health | Life & Style | Express.co.uk
Poor diet causes four fifths of all bowel cancer cases but exactly how diet leads to cancer was not known until now.

The new study by US scientists found a specific molecular pathway that plays a key role in the link between a high-fat diet and tumour growth in the colon. They discovered cancer stem cell growth in the colon was enhanced by a high-fat, Western diet. [...] And pinpointing the exact mechanism can help researchers develop new treatments to counteract the negative effects of a Western diet on bowel cancer. [ don't bother changing diet! ]

Ernährung und Gehirn: Wie Essen Gedächtnis und Intelligenz beeinflusst - SPIEGEL ONLINE

Ein Ergebnis: Kinder, die nicht gestillt wurden oder als Kleinkinder viel stark verarbeitetes, fett- und zuckerreiches Essen aßen, waren im Alter von acht Jahren etwas weniger intelligent als gesünder ernährte Zeitgenossen, die Muttermilch und mehr frisches, selbst gekochtes Essen konsumierten.


Dass gerade Junkfood offenbar nicht gut fürs Gehirn ist, zeigt auch eine aktuelle Untersuchung von 245 iranischen Grundschülern. Kinder, die viele raffinierte Kohlenhydrate wie etwa industriell hergestellten Weißzucker, Weißbrot oder Nudeln zu sich nahmen, erzielten schlechtere Ergebnisse in bestimmten Intelligenztests.

"Wir wissen heute, dass man das biologische Alter durch bestimmte Maßnahmen deutlich beeinflussen kann", sagt Sven Voelpel, Altersforscher an der Jacobs University in Bremen und Autor des Buches "Entscheide selbst, wie alt Du bist. Was die Forschung über das Jungbleiben weiß". Mit kleinen Veränderungen bei Ernährung, Bewegung oder Schlaf lassen sich biochemische Prozesse im Körper anstoßen, die die Wahrscheinlichkeit deutlich erhöhen, gesund alt zu werden. "Aber nicht nur körperliche Faktoren spielen eine Rolle", so Voelpel: Auch die Lebensführung, soziale Kontakte, die Arbeit und Hobbys können viel dazu beitragen, geistig und körperlich jung zu bleiben.

Obese women more likely to have babies with serious birth defects, says study | Society | The Guardian
While the additional risk was small for women who were just above the healthy weight range, the progressive increase in risk made the researchers more confident that the link was causal.

Martin Neovius, an epidemiologist at the Karolinska Institute and the study’s senior author, said: “In terms of risk, it is better to be normal weight than overweight and much better to be normal weight than obese.”

Researchers have answered a big question about the decline of the middle class - The Washington Post
“This idea that we’re having this progression of increasing incomes over time — I think that might be true for the upper regions of the income distribution but not for the median,” said Nathaniel Hendren, a Harvard University economist who was not involved in the study. [...] The implication, Guvenen argues, is that economists should search for explanations for households’ current financial woes in the youth and childhood of today’s workers.

“We are maybe looking at the wrong place for the solution to stagnation in wages and rising inequalities,” Guvenen said. “To understand higher inequality, we should turn and take a closer look at youth.” /// &! one comment https://redd.it/69zf27 said part to do w competition. if you don't work for that money, others will. labour pool available for some kind of work. already applicable in the auto industry in usa uk and germany.

The government's Health and Social Services delivery plan said Scotland needed a "fundamental move" away from a "fix and treat" approach.
Instead, the focus will be on preventing people becoming ill in the first place, and then intervening as quickly as possible to prevent their conditions becoming more serious.

The colourful wrapping and attractive advertising of calorie-rich foods encourage people to buy items that put them at risk of overeating and becoming obese in the future, said Wolfram Schultz, a professor of neuroscience at the University of Cambridge. “We should not advertise, propagate or encourage the unnecessary ingestion of calories,” [ ... dopamine is released in anticipation of a reward, not just consumption of reward, thus seeing comfort food packaging and buying it, releases dopamine = walking into today's supermarket is dopamine rush for some, a high, irresistible, can not stop themselves from buying them 50/50 sugar/fat combos! ]

Why eating a lot of fat is worse for men than women - BBC News
"One of the first steps towards type 2 diabetes is poorer control of glucose," says Matt. "So what we're seeing here, is that I've really lowered my control of sugar, and if I continued with that for a long time, that would probably progress me to type 2 diabetes." [...] The diet Matt and I undertook was extreme but in the real world the same processes will be happening to a lesser extent in people who regularly over consume unhealthy fats.

Anger after key plan to tackle childhood obesity delayed again
[ obesity/diet-related diseases (chronic) to bankrupt NHS ] Theresa May will delay publishing the Government’s long awaited Childhood Obesity Strategy until the autumn, despite pleas from the head of the NHS to act to protect the most vulnerable children in society. On Tuesday NHS England Chief Executive Simon Stevens called for the plan to be unveiled, saying the obesity crisis costs the taxpayer more than the police and fire services combined.

Caloric Restriction vs. Plant-Based Diets | NutritionFacts.org
To do this, the researchers recruited vegans from the St. Louis Vegetarian Society, and went to the Calorie Restriction Society to find folks practicing severe caloric restriction. What did they find?

Only the vegan group got a significant drop in IGF-1. These findings demonstrate that, unlike in rodents, long-term severe caloric restriction in humans does not reduce the level of this cancer-promoting hormone. It’s not how many calories we eat, but the protein intake that may be the key determinant of circulating IGF-1 levels in humans, and so reduced protein intake may become an important component of anti-cancer and anti-aging dietary interventions.

Is the NHS in England stuck with soaring demand?
service struggling to keep up with demand. [...] ambulance response times, delays in A&E, and treatment for cancer - have been missed. All this against a background of increased attendances, more referrals & GPs being busier than ever. So is the NHS is stuck in a never-ending cycle of soaring demand? The kitchen at Stanborough Lodge care home in Welwyn Garden City is part of the NHS frontline in the fight to ease the strain on hospitals. [...] Staff and residents of care homes are being taught to cook nutritious foods [...] "And I think we're going to have to see the NHS pull its finger out a bit in terms of making those investments."

Obesity 'likely culprit' behind womb cancer rise
Rising levels of obesity may be fuelling an increase in the number of women diagnosed with womb cancer, the charity Cancer Research UK warns.
Its figures show around 19 in every 100,000 women in the UK were diagnosed with the disease in the 1990s - climbing to 29 in 100,000 in 2013.
Researchers acknowledge the science behind how extra weight is linked to cancer is not clear - but say hormones produced by extra fat may play a part.
They say more studies are needed.

Schlaganfall bei jungen Menschen: Selten, aber nicht so selten
Roger Cicero ist an einem Hirninfarkt gestorben [...] "plötzlich und vollkommen unerwartet". [...] Schlaganfall. [...] Knapp 10.000 junge Menschen mit Schlaganfall. Der Künstler ist damit deutlich jünger als die meisten Schlaganfallpatienten in Deutschland: Vier von fünf Betroffenen sind über 60 Jahre alt. Aber auch jüngere Menschen trifft die Krankheit: Zwischen drei und fünf Prozent der Schlaganfallpatienten sind jünger als 45 Jahre, allerdings sind bei ihnen Hirnblutungen und Hirninfarkte fast gleich häufig. [...] Die Risikofaktoren nehmen in der Bevölkerung mit höherem Alter zu. [ WRONG! The body can't take the abuse any more! ] [...] Nach Krebs- & Herzerkrankungen ist der Schlaganfall die dritthäufigste Todesursache: 40% der Betroffenen sterben innerhalb des ersten Jahres nach dem Schlaganfall. 65% der Überlebenden tragen bleibende Schäden davon & brauchen Hilfe im Alltag, 15% sind so stark eingeschränkt, dass sie in einer Pflegeeinrichtung versorgt werde müssen.

Eye risk from 'overstretched NHS'
NHS is struggling to keep up because of a "perfect storm" of increased demand, caused by more eye disease in an ageing population which requires requiring long term care. [...] Hospital attendances have increased year on year in the UK, with over 100m outpatient appointments made in England alone during 2013-14, of which nearly 10% are for eye care. Common eye conditions which were previously untreatable, such as age-related macular degeneration, can now be treated successfully, but this adds to the demand on eye clinics. [...] With an increase of up to 30% in eye clinic attendances over the last five years, we can no longer ignore the pressure mounting in hospital eye services. // http://nutritionfacts.org/?s=macular+degeneration

[Gov still wants to carry out a consultation = Watered down by Food Lobby ] But the more important question is whether this will have an impact on child obesity rates. One in 10 children start primary school obese. By the end, one in five are obese. If you add in those who are overweight, it's one in three. [...] our diets are simply not good enough. [...] Food Foundation produced a model of a typical family's diet. [...] consumed too much sugar and saturated fat and too little fibre, fruit, vegetables and oily fish. [...] However, this should not be seen in isolation. The government is expected to publish its much delayed child obesity strategy in the summer. That could include restrictions on advertising and marketing, as well as a sustained campaign to reduce the sugar content of foods and drinks across the board.

Woman 'too young' to get womb cancer is now infertile and going through the menopause at just 26
Rates of the disease have risen by a quarter in the last decade and there are now 8,700 new cases a year in the UK.
But the risk of developing the illness is a third higher in women who have never had children.
This is because they are more exposed during their lives to the hormone oestrogen, which may trigger tumour growth.

However, repeated trials that raise HDL (good one) with drugs have flopped, leading doctors to think something else is going on. [...] "This is one of the first studies to show that some people that have high levels of 'good' cholesterol actually have a higher risk of heart disease so it challenges our conventional wisdom about whether 'good' cholesterol is protecting people from heart disease or not." There have been huge efforts put into drugs to raise HDL in the hope they have the same impact as statins, which lower the bad cholesterol. - http://nutritionfacts.org/?s=HDL &! http://nutritionfacts.org/video/the-saturated-fat-studies-set-up-to-fail/

The cost of being unhealthy - BBC News
In fact, it is often overlooked in the continuing debate about the pressures on the NHS that getting people to live healthier lives is critical to the future of the NHS. In October, NHS chiefs made an unprecedented plea to ministers - they asked for more money. But it wasn't a "something for nothing" request. They set out a compelling case about how the health service was facing a £30bn shortfall by 2020 - and said if the budget was increased by £8bn in real terms they would do the rest.

Public Health England's One You campaign is urging the over 40s to drink less, exercise more, eat better and give up smoking. It is the first national campaign to specifically target this group.

The campaign will warn those in middle-age that unless they change their ways they could die early or face a retirement blighted with ill-health. While overall life expectancy has been rising in recent decades, the years people spend in good health has changed little. But research has shown that living healthy in middle age can double an individual's chances of being healthy at 70. [...] 40% of deaths are related to lifestyle //&!
