NHS in £2.4bn funding boost for GP services in England
NHS chiefs in England have announced a five-year plan to help GP surgeries "get back on their feet" and to improve access for patients. The rescue package will see an extra £2.4bn a year ploughed into services by 2020 - a rise of 14% once inflation is taken into account. It will pay for 5,000 more GPs and extra staff to boost practices. [...] It means more than 10% of health spending will go on GP care - up from just over 8% currently.

Hip replacements for under-60s soaring - BBC News
[ bit.ly/1QmsldE - diet & lifestyle related!? co-attributed? same w osteoporosis. what is the rate in some parts of Japan? 1.usa.gov/1oOR0OI - hypertension issue ] The number of hip replacement operations on people aged under 60 has risen 76% in the last decade, NHS figures for England reveal. In 2004-05 there were 10,145 hip replacements for people aged 59 and below, with 17,883 in 2014-15. [...] [D]octors are now more confident that replacement joints will be more durable than in the past. Patients are also said to be less willing to wait. Demand for new hips across all ages has risen - there were 89,919 of the operations in 2004-05 and 122,154 in 2014-15. [...] [A]s hip replacement techniques and prosthetics have improved, so have the numbers of younger patients undergoing this type of surgery. "It's no longer seen as a last resort. "As surgeons, we now have more confidence about the wear rate of these prosthetics which allows us to be less restrictive on an age basis."

Why Cancer Research Has Stalled - T. Colin Campbell
But such conclusions fail to explain changes in the rates of cancer over time, or the wide variation in cancer prevalence between different human populations. They are flawed for a very fundamental reason: they assume that most types of cancer are caused by DNA mutations. This is the mutation theory of cancer. It serves as a fundamental explanation of cancer development and thus is a central focus of cancer research and clinical practice. [...] I disagree with this theory. I suggest that failing to question the mutation theory of cancer is the underlying scientific reason the War on Cancer is not being won. A nutritional theory of cancer .... [ who makes money on cancer treatment if there is rarely cancer amongst the population vs major cause of death in western society? ]

Lebenserwartung-Studie: Menschen leben länger - jedoch für hohen Preis - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Eine aktuelle Studie zeigt, wie unterschiedlich die Lebenserwartung weltweit verteilt ist - und wie viel Zeit wir mit Krankheiten leben. [...] Laut der Global Burden of Disease Study 2013 werden die Menschen immer älter. In den 23 Jahren zwischen 1990 und 2013 ist die weltweite Lebenserwartung um 6,2 Jahre gestiegen. Gleichzeitig zeigen die Ergebnisse aber, dass die gewonnenen Jahre häufig mit einem hohen Preis bezahlt werden: Sie gehen zu Lasten der eigenen Gesundheit. [...] 1. Länger leben, länger krank: [...] Hierzulande haben Menschen, die 2013 geboren wurden, laut den Daten eine Lebenserwartung von 80,7 Jahren. Gesund sind sie davon aber lediglich 68,8 Jahre. [...] Ursache für die ungesunden zusätzlichen Lebensjahre sind oft nicht Krankheiten von Herz und Kreislauf oder Krebs, schreiben die Forscher. Stattdessen listen sie Leiden wie Diabetes, Muskel- und Skeletterkrankungen, mentale Krankheiten, Suchtprobleme, neurologische Erkrankungen sowie Hör- und Sehverlust auf.

Harvard: Milch von der Kuh ist nicht gesund | DEUTSCHE WIRTSCHAFTS NACHRICHTEN
Schon allein der Grad der Kalzium-Aufnahmefähigkeit durch den Menschen ist aber bei Milchprodukten geringer als bei anderen kalziumhaltigen Lebensmitteln, insbesondere bei gewissen Gemüsearten. 30 Prozent sind es bei der Milch, während bei Brokkoli, Rosenkohl und Blattsalaten 40 bis 60 Prozent Ausbeute erreicht werden. [...] Eine Studie der Harvard University meldet gar Zweifel an der generellen Wirkung des Kalziums an. Die Wissenschaftler der Harvard Public School for Health testeten 75.000 Frauen über einen Zeitraum von zwölf Jahren hinsichtlich des Effektes von Milch auf ihre Knochen. Wie sich zeigte, wurden die Knochen der Testpersonen nicht widerstandfähiger, sondern waren sogar einem höheren Bruchrisiko ausgesetzt. häufigen Milchkonsum ausgelöst wird. Zur Neutralisation entzieht der Körper den Knochen ihren Kalzium-vorrat, wodurch die Osteoporoseanfälligkeit steigt. >> http://www.hsph.harvard.edu/nutritionsource/calcium-full-story/
