Global cost of obesity-related illness to hit $1.2tn a year from 2025 | Society | The Guardian
The cost of treating ill health caused by obesity around the world will top $1.2tn every year from 2025 unless more is done to check the rapidly worsening epidemic, according to new expert estimates. Obesity and smoking are the two main drivers behind the soaring numbers of cancers, heart attacks, strokes and diabetes worldwide, grouped together officially as non-communicable diseases. They are the biggest killers of the modern world.

Britons under-report calorie intake, study suggests - BBC News
[ Salt Sugar Fat ] Britons are under-reporting their daily calorie consumption - potentially misleading policymakers attempting to curb obesity, research suggests. The Behavioural Insights Team points to scientific and economic data showing people eat 3,000 calories, compared to the 2,000 cited in official surveys.
It says this could explain rising obesity levels, despite decades of surveys saying people are eating less.

Life-or-death 999 call target missed for year
Crews are meant to reach patients who have had cardiac arrests or are not breathing - so-called Red 1 calls - within eight minutes.
But performance data from NHS England for May showed for the 12th month in a row the 75% target has been missed.
The target for Red 2 calls, for other life-threatening cases such as strokes, has not been met since January 2014.
During May, 70.5% of Red 1 calls were met in eight minutes and for Red 2 calls it was 65%.
NHS England blamed the problem on the rising number of calls - there have been nearly 11m in the past year, an increase of 7% on the previous year.

NHS budget control 'will require staff cuts'
It says the government should be honest about NHS spending plans at a time when patient demand is rising. [...] The NHS leadership is set to unveil plans to get hospitals and other trusts to stick to agreed spending limits. In the last financial year, trusts ran up a collective deficit of £2.4bn - and the aim is to cut that figure significantly. [...] "It is no longer credible to argue that the NHS can continue to meet increasing demand for services, deliver current standards of care and stay within its budget. This is widely understood within the NHS and now needs to be debated with the public. "There are no easy choices, but it would be disastrous to adopt a mindset that fails to acknowledge the serious state of the NHS in England today." //&! bbc.in/29mkr7G - An overspend would be a serious breach of Whitehall protocol and lead to senior officials being hauled over the coals by the National Audit Office.

NHS finance chiefs warn of poorer care and longer waiting times | Society | The Guardian
NHS finance managers warn today that patients are set to experience poorer care, longer waiting times for treatment and greater rationing.

Obese patients denied surgery in a third of areas in England
A report by the Royal College of Surgeons found a third of local NHS health bosses in England put restrictions on access to surgery.
But it says this goes against official guidance and can prolong patient pain.
However, some local NHS groups criticised in the report say their polices are based on good evidence.
The Royal College of Surgeons has been increasingly alarmed about the rationing of surgery in the NHS in the tough financial climate.
Its report is based on freedom of information returns from nearly all of the 209 clinical commissioning groups in England and all seven health boards in Wales.
While some CCGs have voluntary policies in place, where patients are encouraged to stop smoking or lose weight, others have introduced mandatory policies, which means patients have to meet fixed criteria before surgery. [ie have to show able to eat better/healthier and thus lose weight sustainably.] //&! bbc.in/1SzumEt "clinical guidance" vs "good evidence"

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.

Fruit juice isn't much better for you than soda. Let's stop pretending otherwise.
UK Gov PDF >> bit.ly/1MJYJ6q // This article in BMJ Open demonstrated the extent of the problem: The researchers looked at how much of the American diet is composed of ultra-processed foods and added sugars. They found that 58 percent of total energy intake — more than half of the calories Americans consume! — came from foods that are packed with lots of flavors, colors, and sweeteners. And almost 90 percent of the added sugars Americans consume came from heavily processed foods — the two main sources being soft drinks (17 percent) closely followed by fruit drinks (14 percent). (In this case, "fruit drinks" refers to processed juices with added sugars.) To be clear: Soda remains a big public health threat. As Marion Nestle, a New York University professor and author of the new book Soda Politics. points out, "Sales of [soda alternatives] are up, but not nearly so much as to compensate for the decline in Coke and Pepsi." ... via andi bellatti - bit.ly/1pQAajC

‘These appointments are valuable and to try to avoid wastage, at a time when we are so short of staff, we are asking patients to call and book on the day they need to be seen.

Sugar tax: How bold is it?
[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.

Commuters who shun car travel keep slimmer, study concludes
People who cycle, walk or catch the train or bus to work keep more weight off than commuters who travel by car, a large UK study has found.
The results come from 150,000 UK adults aged 40 or older who agreed to be measured and weighed and fill in a survey about their typical journey to and from work.
Cycling came out as the best activity for staying trim, followed by walking.
But even those who used public transport were leaner than car users. [...] Even when they factored in differences such as leisure-time, exercise, diet and occupation, the trend between commute method and bodyweight remained.

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.

Middle-aged 'risk unhealthy retirement' - BBC News
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. Currently more than two-fifths of those aged 45 to 64 are living with an illness or disability in England. 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 //&!

Obesity bigger cost for Britain than war and terror | Society | The Guardian
Britain spending £47bn a year dealing with the healthcare and social costs of an increasingly overweight population, study finds. Obesity is a greater burden on the UK’s economy than armed violence, war and terrorism, costing the country nearly £47bn a year, a report has found. The study, commissioned by consultancy firm McKinsey and Company, reveals obesity has the second-largest economic impact on the UK behind smoking, generating an annual loss equivalent to 3% of GDP. [...] It has called for a co-ordinated response from governments, retailers, restaurants and food and drink manufacturers to address what it calls the “global obesity crisis”. A series of 44 interventions could bring 20% of overweight or obese people in UK back to normal weight within five to 10 years, the report says. This would save around £16bn a year in the UK, including an annual saving of about £766m in the NHS, according to the study. [...] “Today 25% of the nation is obese and 37% is overweight.

Tooth decay still on the rise among English children - BBC News
figures [are] "disappointing". [C]hildren in England drank more sugary drinks than anywhere in Europe. "Even though people understand the impact of a sugary diet so many children have advanced tooth decay - a highly preventable disease," said Ms Hurley. "We are also creating a legacy of obesity and significant health problems. "If we are to get serious about tackling this then prevention is the key," she added. [...] Prof Nigel Hunt from the Royal College of Surgeons said: "An almost 10% increase in the number of children being admitted to hospital for tooth extraction due to decay over a four-year period is unacceptable." "The need for tooth extraction continues to be the number one reason why five to nine-year-old children are admitted to hospital." He also said that poor oral health education was another reason for the rise. 'Deprivation correlation' [...] "As deprivation increases so does the rate of tooth extraction."

Zika and Ebola: A taste of things to come? - BBC News
Both diseases have been known about for decades, and yet in both cases no vaccines or drugs were available when we most needed them. So what's going on? Is this just a terrible coincidence, being caught off-guard like this twice in such quick succession, or is it part of a worrying trend and a taste of things to come? At first glance it wouldn't appear that the two diseases have much in common. One is difficult to catch but a ferocious killer, while the other spreads with ease but is relatively harmless to the vast majority of people infected. Yet, in both cases there is something novel, either in the way the virus has spread or in how it affected people which has made the outbreaks more of a threat. In global health security terms that is a real concern, because such sudden changes of modus operandi can not only make public health threats even more difficult to predict or anticipate than normal, but also make all the difference between a localised outbreak and global pandemic.

Ebola 'devastates long-term health' - BBC News
Their studies on survivors in Liberia showed large numbers had developed weakness, memory loss and depressive symptoms in the six months after being discharged from an Ebola unit. Other patients were "actively suicidal" or still having hallucinations. More than 17,000 people in West Africa have survived Ebola infection. The evidence, being presented at the annual meeting of the Academy of Neurology, is an early glimpse at a much wider study of long-term health problems after Ebola.

Whatever happened to the obesity strategy? - BBC News
There is speculation now that it may not be published before Easter. The simple reason is the prime minister's overcrowded diary and his current preoccupation with Europe. David Cameron knows the clock is ticking down to the end of his premiership before the next election. He wants to make his mark on domestic policy and he has identified tackling obesity as an important potential part of his legacy. It is seen at Number Ten as a priority second term issue, to rank with the dementia initiative in his first term of office. Much of the groundwork has already been done by the Department of Health and Public Health England. [...] Mr Cameron's anti-red tape and pro-business leanings might steer him away from such an approach and towards a voluntary deal agreed with the supermarkets. But officials and experts will make the case for government intervention.

NHS 'will miss £22bn efficiency savings target', says thinktank | Society | The Guardian
[ nothing is addressed in prevention - mismatch between demand by chronically ill (high cost and returning again and again for treatment) and resources available ] Last October Simon Stevens, the chief executive of NHS England, committed the service to plugging £22bn of the expected £30bn gap in its finances by 2020 through productivity gains of 2% or 3% a year between now and 2020. Since then the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats have promised to provide the other £8bn by 2020 from government funds, though Labour has refused to do the same. “It’s quite possible that the NHS will miss the £22bn target by quite a long way and therefore require much more than £8bn in additional funding. That’s a realistic possibility”, said Richard Murray, the King’s Fund’s director of policy. //&! bit.ly/1j6Q1q1 &! bit.ly/1QuxC1e - Cuts of £4.6bn to local authority social care press hard on the NHS – with beds blocked by frail people [...] [technically raised budget 4 NHS, but demand is rising!]

Families are entitled to £120,000 through the Vaccine Damage Payments Scheme, but only if they can prove "severe" disability. Josh's narcolepsy was triggered after he was given the H1N1 2009 influenza vaccine, known as Pandemrix, made by GlaxoSmithKline, in January 2010. He also suffers from cataplexy, which affects muscle control, but he had shown no symptoms of the illness before being vaccinated. [...] The vaccine, which is no longer used, has also been linked to narcolepsy in children from Finland, Sweden and Ireland.

Mexicans consume more carbonated drinks per person than any other nation, and the country has one of the world's highest rates of childhood obesity. Two years ago the government introduced a tax on sugary drinks - but is it working? [...] So what do the big US brands make of Mexico's approach? Hank Cardello of the Obesity Solutions Initiative, an industry-funded lobby group in Washington DC, cracks open a can of diet ginger ale and tells us. "You have to look at ways of expanding the tool kit of solutions," he says. "The typical regulatory tool kit is tax, ban, limit, constrain - those kinds of anti-growth words, if you would. They're anathema to what the companies have to do. "We should ban the word 'should'. It's like a parent talking to a child. 'You should eat better, you should do this.' "No. When broccoli tastes like a cheeseburger, I'll eat more broccoli. You don't lecture to people to get them to change."

UK is 'vulnerable' to next Ebola outbreak - BBC News
"We are also concerned that, in the unlikely but possible event of a domestic outbreak, the UK lacks the capability to go further and manufacture enough vaccines to vaccinate UK citizens in an emergency. "Existing facilities are degraded and new plants will take years to build, leaving the UK in a vulnerable position." The concern is that should a disease such as Ebola spread around the world then countries would look after their own interests first, making it hard for the UK to get hold of vaccines. Prof Adrian Hill, who was involved in trialling Ebola vaccines at Oxford University, described the lack of vaccine manufacturing as a "national security issue". Those concerns were echoed by the chief medical officer, Prof Dame Sally Davies, who told the committee that "we are looking at how we can try and attract companies back".

How mutton flaps are killing Tonga - BBC News
[ cheap trade and culture (western aspirations) destroying and island economy and killing it s people ] The Pacific island of Tonga is the most obese country in the world. Up to 40% of the population is thought to have type 2 diabetes and life expectancy is falling. One of the main causes is a cheap, fatty kind of meat - mutton flaps - imported from New Zealand. [...] She frowns. "But, nobody wants Tongan houses any more, because something Western, something modern, people think is better, people associated Tongan style of homes with poverty. "Just like with our food." The traditional Tongan diet is fish, root vegetables and coconuts, as you might expect for a palm-fringed island in the middle of the Pacific. [...] "People think something imported is superior," [...] People don't have the education to know what is bad for their health." [...] New Zealand and Australia sell large quantities of mutton flaps to China, Mexico and African countries. In Europe they are used in doner kebabs

Enzyme that 'stops sugar being stored as fat' is identified by scientists : science
An addicts way of life. Take something to combat the addiction. Like the main character in Mr. Robot. Even if, you still stab your pancreas every time with processed and engineered food. Meaning you will end up as normal weight type 2 diabetic. And still have elevated inflammatory markers with less fat covering your organs. Meaning higher risk for cancer. Oh, and it doesn't help with colon and rectal cancer either. To reduce that type of risk you would have to eat a Whole-Food Plant-Based Diet (see nutritionfacts.org) All those research grants because the medical profession doesn't trust people to change their diet and lifestyle for the better, before they are even obese. Big Pharma will love this pill. - http://www.pnas.org/content/early/2016/01/07/1514375113.abstract

MP fears Hinchingbrooke and Peterborough hospital takeover deal - BBC News
The first NHS hospital to be privately run could be merged with another cash-strapped trust under a move to share services and save money, an MP claimed. [...] But, he said: "Because [Peterborough and Stamford] are a foundation trust and we are not, if anything it would be an acquisition not a merger. "We are looking at making the best use of money without a diminution of services." Mr Djanogly said proposals to merge "back office functions" at a time when local health services were "haemorrhaging money" were "absolutely to be commended". [ not losing money, the thumb screw have been tightened while the population gets sicker and older and more sick peoples lives prolonged with modern medicine << it's about positioning and PR spin. it's like climate change denial. medical and epidemiological facts denial. ] [...] The Huntingdon hospital was the first in the NHS to be run by a private company, but returned to NHS management in April.

English GP surgeries reach new patient 'breaking point' - BBC News
Large numbers of GP surgeries in England have stopped taking on new patients or have applied to do so, a BBC investigation has found. The British Medical Association (BMA) says many are at "breaking point" as they struggle to fill staff vacancies. At least 100 surgeries applied to NHS England to stop accepting new patients in 2014/15, a Freedom of Information request revealed. NHS England said it was investing £15m to boost the workforce. At the beginning of November, 299 surgeries were indicating on the NHS Choices website - which provides patients with information about surgeries in their local area - that they were not taking on new patients. [...] Analysis of the Freedom of Information data suggests about 46% of the 100 surgeries which applied in 2014/15 were denied permission, or withdrew the request. NHS England says practices will seek approval before closing their lists to new patients.
