[...]
Unvaccinated children and those with suppressed immune systems – like Montantes – are the most vulnerable to measles, which kills between one and two people for every 1,000 it infects. The virus can also cause brain inflammation, called encephalitis, and permanent brain damage at about the same rate. In 2017, measles killed 110,000 people, mostly children under five, according to the World Health Organization.

Doctors hail world first as woman’s advanced breast cancer is eradicated | Science | The Guardian
A woman with advanced breast cancer which had spread around her body has been completely cleared of the disease by a groundbreaking therapy that harnessed the power of her immune system to fight the tumours.

It is the first time that a patient with late-stage breast cancer has been successfully treated by a form of immunotherapy that uses the patient’s own immune cells to find and destroy cancer cells that have formed in the body.

Chemicals in packaging, carpets and non-stick pans 'may contribute to obesity' | Science | The Guardian
Chemicals used to make non-stick pots and pans, stain-resistant carpets, and food packaging may contribute to high levels of obesity by disrupting the body’s ability to burn calories, scientists say.

Researchers at Harvard University examined the effects of compounds called perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs), which have already raised concerns among some health experts after animal experiments and other studies linked them to cancer, high cholesterol and immune problems.

In search of surrogates, foreign couples descend on Ukraine - BBC News
Foreign couples have been coming to this corner of Europe in droves since 2015, when surrogacy hotspots in Asia began closing their industries one-by-one, amid reports of exploitation. Barred from India, Nepal and Thailand, they turned to Ukraine, one of the few places left where surrogacy can still be arranged at a fraction of what it costs in the US.

"We have so many childless couples coming to our country - it's like a conveyor belt," says Ana, who asked for her identity to be protected.

When she was 21, and after some years of hotel work, Ana finally decided to become a surrogate. By then she had a daughter and realised she was eligible. Under Ukrainian law, a surrogate must have a child of their own before carrying someone else's. If you have your own child, you are less likely to become attached to the one you must give away, those who recruit the women say. [...] Europe's capital of surrogacy
Demand for surrogacy in Ukraine "has increased probably 1000% in the last two years alone," says Sam Everingham of Families Through Surrogacy, a Sydney-based charity that advises would-be parents.

The country, he adds, "has found itself almost accidentally as one of the handful of nation states" which allow surrogacy tourism.

Over 3,700 deaths linked to alcohol - BBC News
Alcohol was a factor in more than 3,700 deaths in a single year in Scotland, according to new research.

Findings from NHS Health Scotland show that drink was involved in more than 1,000 deaths from cancer in 2015.

It was also linked to hundreds of deaths from conditions such as liver disease, as well as accidental injuries.

In addition, more than 41,000 people were admitted to hospital as a result of consuming alcohol, the study found.

Experts said the findings show that alcohol has a wider impact on health than many people think.

NHS failing to tackle 'significant safety risks', warns its medical chief
Patients were being left at risk of suffering needless harm – including amputations, devastating maternity complications and deaths – because of the lack of action to protect them, the former heart surgeon said.

In an interview with The Telegraph, Sir Bruce said there were too many organisations vying for attention and instead, one simple system was needed to issue safety directives.

He also said too many hospitals were putting cost-cutting ahead of patient safety.

Currently 39 per cent of the working age population in Scotland has at least one long-term condition, but that is forecast to surge as the population ages and Scotland grapples with the fallout of an obesity epidemic.

Prof MacDonald said a failure to prevent and manage long-term conditions properly would be catastrophic as pension age increases to 68 or more.

NHS takes control of record number of GP practices | Holyrood Magazine
Health boards in Scotland have taken control of a record number of local doctors' practices in recent years, figures from the Royal College of GPs (RCGP) have revealed.

Facing a recruitment crisis as family doctors take early retirement and remote locations struggle to attract new GPs, practices are being handed back to health boards as they struggle to meet their commitments.

This means the number of patients treated directly by the NHS in so-called “2c” practices has doubled since 2007 to around 160,000. [...] Dr Miles Mack, Chair of RCGP Scotland, said: “In particular, it means that GPs are no longer in a leadership role and there is less continuity of care for patients.

Mack said public funding on GP services as a proportion of NHS spending has declined.

“Sufficient action must be taken to fill the projected shortfall of 856 GPs across Scotland by 2021,” he said.

“To fund that appropriately we need 11 per cent of NHS Scotland’s budget to go to general practice services.”

"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.

NHS Health Check: Short GP consultations crazy, say GPs - BBC News
Average consultation length is 10 minutes in the UK - thought to be the shortest in the developed world.
GP leaders said this was already too short and the extra workload from the hospital closures proposed by local leaders would destabilise care.
The proposals are being made by local health leaders to "modernise" the NHS.
There are 44 plans in England - many of which involve reducing hospital care and pushing more services into the community to save money and make the NHS more efficient. Similar measures are being taken in the rest of the UK. [...] The RCGP and BMA said they would result in even more complex cases being passed on to GPs once they start being introduced later this year.

New breast cancer vaccine ‘stops disease in its tracks’ - The Scotsman
The new treatment helped stimulate the immune systems of 80 per cent of women who took part in a clinical trial and almost one quarter of patients experienced tumour shrinkage, according to researchers from the US. However the jab proved most effective in the very earliest stages of the disease. The vaccine targets a molecule that cancer cells use to hide themselves from our natural defences.

NHS £8bn budget plan 'not enough', say hospital bosses - BBC News
Patients in England will see rising waiting times, rationing and cuts in the number of staff unless the NHS gets more money, health bosses say.

Chris Hopson, of NHS Providers, said the settlement needed to be redrawn.

Dementia now leading cause of death - BBC News
Dementia, including Alzheimer's disease, has overtaken heart disease as the leading cause of death in England and Wales, latest figures reveal.
Last year, more than 61,000 people died of dementia - 11.6% of all recorded deaths.
The Office for National Statistics says the change is largely due to an ageing population.
People are living for longer and deaths from some other causes, including heart disease, have gone down.
Also, doctors have got better at diagnosing dementia and the condition is now given more weight on death certificates.
