Type 2 diabetes rise in children 'disturbing' - BBC News
More than 600 children and teenagers are being treated for type 2 diabetes in England and Wales, and the rise in cases is a "hugely disturbing trend", local councils are warning.
The figures come from a report by child health experts which found 110 more cases among under-19s in 2015-16 than two years previously.
The youngest children affected are aged between five and nine.
Council leaders said urgent action on childhood obesity was needed.
The Local Government Association, which represents councils in England and Wales, added that government cuts to public health budgets had affected their ability to tackle the issue.

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.

Exercise 'not key to obesity fight', say scientists - BBC News
[ Food Politics of "a balanced diet and everything in moderation ] Exercise does little to tackle obesity, according to a group of doctors and sports scientists. Writing in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, three international experts say it is time to ''bust the myth'' that people can eat what they want as long as they are active. They accuse the food industry of misleading the public, and sabotaging public health campaigns. //&! Britons in denial about obesity, new research finds - bbc.in/1RPPqpJ - New research suggests that despite high levels of obesity, four out of five of people in the UK consider themselves to be healthy.

NHS child mental health money 'missing' despite investment - BBC News
[ demand resource mismatch, chronic sick population siphoning off funds more and more ] Last summer ministers said they would invest an additional £143m in the services this financial year. The Mental Health Network suspects the funding has been used to support other NHS services. [...] The additional funding was part of a £1.25bn investment over five years announced by the chancellor in the Budget in March 2015. [ others said, with knowledge, that the 1.25bn is no investment rather than plugging holes, gaps, cracks and crevasses in services ] [...] "It doesn't seem to have turned into posts on the front line. We are not hearing any reports of any significant investment at a local level around children's services. Indeed, some services are still experiencing cuts in services."

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.

Former MP Edwina Currie has said size 14 model Ashley Graham looks "unhealthy" and that the fashion industry is encouraging people to become obese. Speaking on BBC Breakfast she said encouraging obesity was just as dangerous as encouraging people to be size zero. She was reacting to a newspaper article written by journalist Katie Glass, who also appeared on the programme.

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."

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.

Sugary drinks tax 'would stop millions becoming obese' - BBC News
And TV chef Jamie Oliver has campaigned for the tax saying it was the "single most important" change that could be made. The director general of the British Soft Drinks Association, Gavin Partington, said: "The hypothetical claims made in this modelling study run contrary to real-world evidence. "In fact, the soft drinks tax in Mexico has reduced average calorie intake by six calories per person per day, with no evidence that it has reduced levels of obesity." He added that other options such as reducing portion sizes or changing ingredients would be more effective.

[ demand of ageing chronically sick population outstrips all planning 5 years, again and again and again ] Adam Roberts, of the Health Foundation think tank, said: "These figures are beyond dire. A comprehensive national plan is urgently needed." The situation raises the prospect of the Department of Health failing to balance the overall books, which would be a huge embarrassment given the extra money the NHS is getting. In autumn's spending review the government announced the NHS would get an extra £8.4bn this Parliament. A big chunk of that, £3.8bn, is being put in next year. [...] [Commentary:] This time the impact is likely to be felt in terms of what doesn't happen. The government has promised the NHS extra money in the coming years to help it cope with demand and transform itself to become fit for the 21st century. But if that goes on paying off debts, the NHS will be on the back foot straight away. The risk then is that a vicious circle develops ... &! bbc.in/1lOPU4z

Krebs: So lässt sich das Risiko verringern - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Vor Krebs fürchten sich die Deutschen wie vor keiner anderen Krankheit. Mit dem richtigen Lebensstil lässt sich das Erkrankungsrisiko deutlich verringern - leider aber ohne Garantie.

Auch in Deutschland sind bösartige Tumore die zweithäufigste Todesursache, nur an den Folgen von Herz-Kreislauf-Erkrankungen sterben noch mehr Menschen. Die Erkrankungszahlen liegen noch deutlich höher. Im Laufe des Lebens erhalten jeder zweite Mann und fast jede zweite Frau die gefürchtete Diagnose, rund 500.000 sind es jährlich.

Dr. McDougall - youtu.be/rUWcgh5Ju9g - HCLV - ~ 80/10/10 ~ [...] excess protein does not get stored, gets dumped through urine. body stores fat in liver and fat stores. (excess calories). carbs, excess carbs/sugar get converted into fat through liver (excess calories, overeating) - although this process very inefficient. thus you can overeat on engineered food (fat/carb) easier than just carbs! irrespective of protein. fat/carb 50/50 combo is addictive! science has this shown, and food companies know this and named it bliss point.

Is scurvy making a comeback? - BBC News
Scurvy is on the rise in England, [...] In the year up to April 2014, it was the primary diagnosis behind 16 hospital admissions and the primary or secondary cause of 94 admissions. Between 2009 and 2014, admissions related to scurvy went up by 27%. That's in line with percentage increases in hospital admissions for malnutrition and gout - a common Victorian complaint traditionally associated with too much port and an unhealthy lifestyle - over the same period. The most recent research, conducted in 2014, suggests that gout currently affects one in 40 people in the UK. [...] What does this say about the nation's diet? [...] While the increasing prevalence of gout in the UK is a concern, experts put it down to an ageing population and a growing obesity problem. // &! bbc.in/1ZP1bDL - Child Protection failed.

Will Self: the NHS is a power that can jolt even the most despairing back to life | Society | The Guardian
I’ve thought about the politics, sociology and culture of healthcare in this country a great deal, and long since reached the conclusion that there’s a sort of Malthusian gap ever widening between our desire for more and better treatments and the NHS’s capability to deliver them all, free and on demand. We’re suckers for medical science’s promise of yet more heroic − nay, Frankensteinian − interventions. Good materialists that we’ve become, we have faith that at some point in the not-too-distant future our marvellous doctors, nurses and support staff will be able to palliate − if not cure − just about everything. This is the ultimate redistribution − one of mortality itself – and it’s come to occupy the psychic space that other redistributive concepts, such as socialism, once held. [...] an inability to look after ourselves any more.

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.

The NHS in Scotland will face "significantly more pressure" in the coming year despite a budget increase, the doctors' leaders have warned. The British Medical Association claimed that "constrained resources" meant the health service was struggling to cope with increasing demands. BMA Scotland chairman Peter Bennie also said the number of jobs lying vacant could have a "detrimental impact". The Scottish government said it had a "clear vision for the future". [...] "The funding gap faced by the NHS set against rising demand and the impact of increasing consultant, specialty doctor and GP vacancies and unfilled trainee posts cannot be ignored, and we must establish ways to make Scotland's NHS a more attractive place to work. [...] NHS will face significantly more pressure as Scotland's population continues to age." [...] [Shona Robinson] ensuring our NHS is sustainable for future generations.

Could fining parents cut childhood obesity? - BBC News
More than 600 million people, or 13% of the world's adult population, are obese. The rate more than doubled between 1980 and 2014, according to the World Health Organization. The estimated cost to the global economy is $2tn (£1.3tn), including £47bn to the UK. National and local governments have struggled to address obesity, defined as having a body mass index - based on the ratio of height to weight - of more than 30. They often face accusations of nanny-statism and opposition from food and drink companies if they do so. Attempts have been patchy and experts are divided on what, if anything, works. // [ THUS NUDGE and push people making the right decision by progressive (increase every other year) sugar/fat tax and animal products tax and subsidize produce, especially in food deserts. and tax food chain products accordingly. ] In 2012, France quadrupled the tax on saturated fat-rich palm oil, dubbed the "Nutella tax" because the popular hazelnut spread contained the ingredient.

Obesity 'biggest threat to women's health' in England - BBC News

[...] obesity was now "the most pressing health issue for the nation". "Estimates of the economic costs of obesity suggest they will bankrupt the NHS.

Gesundheit in Deutschland: Bericht Robert Koch-Institut - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Wir werden immer älter und sterben seltener an Herz-Kreislauf-Erkrankungen. Zu diesem Ergebnis kommt ein Bericht zur Gesundheit der Deutschen. Sorgen machen Experten zu niedrige Impfquoten, resistente Keime und Diabetes. [...] Zudem sterben die Menschen hierzulande seltener an Erkrankungen des Herzens, etwa Herzinfarkten, und Schlaganfällen als noch vor 20 Jahren. Verantwortlich dafür macht das RKI Fortschritte in der Therapie und eine bessere medizinische Versorgung und Vorsorge. Trotzdem bleiben Herz-Kreislauf-Erkrankungen mit einem Anteil von knapp 40 Prozent die häufigste Todesursache. Krebserkrankungen stehen an zweiter Stelle. Sie sind laut Bericht für einen Viertel (25 Prozent) der Todesfälle in Deutschland verantwortlich. Während insgesamt mehr Menschen an Krebs erkranken (weil es mehr ältere gibt), sinkt die Sterblichkeitsrate bei den meisten Krebsarten. Das RKI führt das auf bessere Therapien und Fortschritte bei der Früherkennung zurück.

UK healthcare 'lagging behind other rich nations' - BBC News
<< But the report also found evidence that Britons were leading unhealthy lives. Obesity rates were among the highest, while alcohol consumption and smoking rates were also above average. >> //!! Standards of healthcare in the UK are lagging behind many developed nations with thousands fewer doctors and nurses being employed, a report says. The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development review of 34 countries found the UK was behind in key areas such as stroke and cancer. It also found spending was lower per head and there was less equipment. The Department of Health said there was room for improvement and money was being targeted in those areas. The report found the UK has 8.2 nurses per 1,000 people compared with an OECD average of 9.1, while it has 2.8 doctors per 1,000 compared with 3.3. Experts said 26,500 more doctors and 47,700 nurses would be needed to match the OECD average.

@4:40 - RE: Food as Reward = Business as Usual (BAS). Any food that triggers some feel good chemicals can be abused: junk food, fast food, processed food, alcohol, tobacco, drugs. Some are legal others carry a stigma and others are illegal ... depending where you live. (Liberal) Progressive policy making would be to legalise all but put a progressive and aggressive tax on those. An addiction & harm tax along the nudge theory. And with that tax revenue to pay for public health care and public education campaigns to raise awareness and change perception, image and opinion. Not pulling the nanny state. But if you use tobacco, you pay twice; now with your discretionary spending choice and then with your health, and we let you know on the packaging. And we can also subsidise cycle to work schemes, cycle lanes, cycle shelters.

Chancellor urged not to cut vital health fund - BBC News
George "Mr Judgement Call" Osborne // Vital health services in England including stop smoking, obesity and sexual health clinics are at risk, experts are warning. Earlier this year the Chancellor unveiled plans to cut the £2.8bn public health budget by £200m from January. The pot is held by councils so is not covered by the government's promise to protect the health service. But doctors, nurses and other senior health officials say the money is vital to relieving pressure on the wider NHS. A total of 11 groups, including the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges, Royal College of Nursing, NHS Confederation and Faculty of Public Health, have put their names to a letter to George Osborne asking him to reconsider the plans. The letter warned raiding the funds would simply cause greater ill-health and inequality in the population. [...] [PREVENTION>>] [deal with Osborne for 8bn extra a year this Parliament] included making gains from improvements in people's health. [Cut now, pay more later!]

[ REPORT DOES NOT MENTION PREVENTION AS MEASURE! ] Fundamental change is needed now if the NHS in Scotland is to cope with demand, according to the financial watchdog Audit Scotland. [...] The report also says that the health budget as a whole has decreased slightly since 2008/9 by 0.7% once inflation and capital spending is taken into account. Health boards - which are responsible for most frontline services - received a slight increase of 1%, but not enough to keep pace with cost pressures. The cost of drugs alone rose by 4% and is expected to rise by 5-16% in future. [...] Dr Peter Bennie, chairman of the British Medical Association Scotland, said: "The overriding message that must get through from this report is that substantive and realistic action is needed if our health service is to cope with the rapidly increasing pressures it is facing. //&! bbc.in/1PGQddr - the NHS adapting to changed demands. highlights areas where not much progress has been made towards the vision.

They have pledged an additional £2bn this year & an extra £8bn before the election. But the share of the economy devoted to health is set to shrink by between 0.7 & 1 percentage point between 2009/2020, taking the figure back to the level last seen in 2008. [...] Simon Stevens is the head of NHS England and has published a five-year plan for the service which included £22bn in efficiency savings and different ways of working, keeping people out of hospital where possible.

More maternity units closing doors, union warns - BBC News
The Royal College of Midwives (RCM) said a shortage of midwives was having a major impact and mistakes would "almost certainly be made". Some 42% of units shut down temporarily in the past year, its survey found. The government said it was determined to ensure "every mother and baby gets the highest quality care". A poll of 83 heads of midwifery at NHS trusts found there had been a rise in the number of units that had closed their doors, with 33% having closed the previous year. The RCM said budget cuts were also affecting services, with midwives struggling to cope with a rising birth rate and increasingly complex births. [...] But he added that rising numbers of complex pregnancies were also putting pressure on other UK countries. [...] The RCM says there is a shortage of 2,600 full-time midwives.

Five research papers that revolutionised health - BBC News
Richard Doll was the British statistician working for the Medical Research Council who published a ground-breaking paper in the British Medical Journal in 1950 that concluded there was "a real association between carcinoma of the lung and smoking". He looked at the incidence of smoking and lung cancer in a large number of patients and compared their experience with people who had different cancers - what scientists call a control group. His findings led him to give up smoking. But despite many subsequent studies that have supported the connection, the tobacco industry has not accepted the research.

Brighton and Hove initiative tackles sugar addiction - BBC News
The "devastating harm" caused by having too much sugar is the focus of Brighton and Hove's first city-wide campaign as part of a drive to help reduce obesity. More than 300 children were admitted to hospital for teeth extraction in the city in 2012-13, while treating diet-related diseases costs £80m a year. The Sugar Smart City initiative has the backing of TV chef Jamie Oliver. He has asked food outlets in the city to adopt a voluntary 10p sugar levy on soft drinks with added sugar. The food campaigner has recently launched a voluntary levy on sugary drinks in his own restaurants, with the money raised going to Sustain, a charity working in health and food education.
