Snacks, fags and booze: Scotland's triple health challenge | Holyrood Magazine
Obesity is linked to 13 types of cancer, as well as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and strokes, with obesity-related illnesses costing Scotland approximately £4.6bn. The annual cost of type 2 diabetes alone to NHS Scotland is £800m.

Obesity is now the second biggest risk factor for cancer after smoking and Cancer Research UK has warned that Scotland is in the grip of an obesity epidemic, with Scots consuming 110 tonnes of sugar a day, fuelled by promotions on unhealthy foods. [...] experts have concluded that only a change in diet can tackle Scotland’s weight problems.

How the humble potato fuelled the rise of liberal capitalism
Enlightened eating

Today’s somewhat uneasy marriage of public health and individual choice is the result of new ideas that emerged during the Enlightenment. During the 18th century, states across Europe began to rethink the bases of national wealth and strength. At the heart of these new ideas was a new appreciation of what we would now call public health. Whereas in earlier centuries rulers wished to prevent famines that might cause public unrest, in the 18th century, politicians became increasingly convinced that national strength and economic prowess required more than an obedient population disinclined to riot.

NHS faces staggering increase in cost of elderly care, academics warn | Society | The Guardian
major new research which shows a 25% increase in those who will need care between 2015 and 2025.

Within eight years, there will be 2.8 million people over 65 needing nursing and social care, unable to cope alone, says the research – largely because of the toll of dementia in a growing elderly population. The research, published by the respected Lancet Public Health medical journal, says cases of disability related to dementia will rise by 40% among people aged 65 to 84, with other forms of disability increasing by about 31%. [...] Immediate investment in improving people’s lifestyles would pay dividends, they say.

'Fat but fit is a big fat myth' - BBC News
[ the thing is, the body is constantly fight - inflamation and immune system, there comes a time in a bodies life when it will give up and cruble under the pressure of ill diet and lifestyle ] They say people who were obese but who had no initial signs of heart disease, diabetes or high cholesterol were not protected from ill health in later life, contradicting previous research.
A summary of their study was discussed at the European Congress on Obesity.
The term "fat but fit" refers to the alluring theory that if people are obese but all their other metabolic factors such as blood pressure and blood sugar are within recommended limits then the extra weight will not be harmful. [...] They found these people who were obese but "metabolically healthy" were at higher risk of developing heart disease, strokes and heart failure than people of normal weight.

This compares with a figure of 4.9% in 2010/11, the first year of the coalition government. This is the basis of Labour's claim of a big increase in privatisation under the Conservatives. Government sources, though, say there was a significant rise in under Labour when private hospitals were first used to help cut waiting lists. Back in 2006/07, the use of private health provision was just 2.8%.

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.

Council tax rises 'fail to stop care cuts'
[ TAX THE CAUSE! ] Care services are facing cuts this year as rises in council tax have failed to plug the gaps in budgets in England, town hall chiefs are warning.
The government allowed councils to increase council tax by 2% this year to spend on care - and most have done so.
But, according to a survey of all 151 social care directors, there is still a shortfall of nearly £1bn.
The Association of Directors of Adult Social Services said councils had no option but to reduce the services.
Directors in charge of care for older people and adults with disabilities indicated in the annual survey only about half of this shortfall could be met by efficiency savings.

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.

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"

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." Whatever differences there may be about why the NHS is so stretched, there is no denying that with money so tight and performance slipping on many fronts, time to find a solution is running out. //&! bbc.in/23xX0yf &! bbc.in/1S95lh1 [...] system facing both inexorably increasing patient numbers and severe financial strain."

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.

ACTION NEEDED TO MAINTAIN NHS SCOTLAND SERVICES, REPORT WARNS
NHS Scotland will not be able to provide the same level of service in the future unless urgent action is taken to alleviate the pressures it faces, according to a new report. The health service is struggling with tightening budgets, rising costs, higher demand for services, pressure to meet targets and increased staff vacancies, Audit Scotland said. It warned the Scottish Government has not made sufficient progress towards its 2020 vision to change the balance of healthcare to more community-based settings. [...] Boards spent £284 million on temporary staff in 2014/15, an increase of 15% from the previous financial year.

The number of agency nursing and midwifery staff increased by 53% while s pending on locum doctors increased by 22%.

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.

Study: Heart attack patients getting younger, fatter
Despite greater awareness of risk factors for heart disease and the need for healthy lifestyle changes, heart attack patients are becoming younger and more obese, according to new research from the Cleveland Clinic. // Google Info Box - The risk of heart attack increases steadily for men after age 45, and the average age of a man having his first heart attack is about 66. About 565,000 men are expected to suffer a heart attack in 2009. Nearly half of those younger than 65 years old who have a heart attack will die within eight years. (7 Dec 2012) // nbcnews.to/1obb39f

Three GP surgeries have banned patients from booking advance time slots. The 21,000 patients at Swindon surgeries now face scramble at 8.30am. Rule is necessary because of increase in demand and shortage of doctors. Patients at the three surgeries have branded the new system a 'nightmare'. [...] ‘There is a national shortage of GPs and Swindon is not immune to this.
‘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.
‘This is for a trial period only and if successful will remain as part of our policy.’ It also pleaded with its patients, around 15 per cent of whom are over 65, to use other sources of information, such as the 111 non-emergency line, pharmacies, and NHS websites.

Tribe Called Quest star Phife Dawg dies aged 45
The musician had been struggling with ill health and diabetes for several years, and received a kidney transplant from his wife in 2008. [...] News of Phife Dawg's death emerged on Twitter, where producer and broadcaster DJ Chuck Chillout posted an RIP message in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
Rolling Stone magazine later confirmed his death, although an official statement has yet to be released. [...] Following the group's dissolution, Phife continued to battle diabetes, reuniting with the group for occasional live shows - partly to help cover the medical costs of his type 2 diabetes (often mis-reported as type 1).
He suffered renal failure in 2008 and received a transplant from his wife - but was back on the waiting list for a kidney four years later. [...] "It's really a sickness," [...] "Like straight-up drugs. I'm just addicted to sugar."

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

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.
