I had alcohol-related breast cancer. Here’s why I still drink | Joanna Moorhead | Opinion | The Guardian
The chief medical officer advises women to think about cancer when having a drink. But if I did that every time I had a glass of wine, I think I’d feel the cancer had won [...] I guess what it comes down to is quite simply the importance of enjoying life. When I had cancer, I discovered that I didn’t just want to survive; I wanted to have fun, to make the most of every single day, and to enjoy happy occasions and meals with my friends and family. [...] drinking wine, beer or tequila adds a dimension to social occasions that I rather enjoy. And somehow it feels to me that it wasn’t worth surviving cancer if I’m going to limit my life to thinking, every time someone offered me a glass of something, about my breast cancer and the likelihood of it returning. [...] Life is too short to cut out something you enjoy in moderation, [ picking up the words from the food lobby, heart disease and cancer in moderation. sprinkling in doubt. to continue that lifestyle. do you say asbestos in mod? ]

Cirrhosis: how dangerous is drinking? | Society | The Guardian
Most of us who drink alcohol won’t die from liver disease – but it still kills more of us than diabetes and road deaths combined [...] But will it? Are we becoming a nation of drinkers and drunks? The UK death rate from liver disease has increased fourfold in the past 30 years as cheap alcohol has flooded our shores and our gullets. Alcohol-related emergencies resulted in over a quarter of a million admissions in 2013/14, most of whom were 45-64-year-olds, who see themselves as regular rather than binge drinkers. [...] “Alcohol is linked to over 60 medical conditions including cancer, diabetes and high blood pressure.” //&! Up to 35% of A&E visits in north-east are alcohol related, says report.

[ irreversible damange. long-time regular / daily drink or two or three or four for a lifetime. drinking out of habit. back from work. rewarding yourself. de-stress. and the binge drinking. the social weekends. ] Derek McBeath, 43, saw himself as a casual drinker – but the two cans of lager he was drinking every night were killing him. The specialists treating him at the Royal Free hospital in Hampstead, north London, say most people with liver disease aren’t alcoholics – they just drink too much. Jenny Kleeman explores how Britain’s drinking habits are burdening the NHS. -//- referrals double every 6 years. and they get younger and younger - late 20's referrals. // there is even stigma against people who do not drink. // becomes unmanageable burden on NHS.

'Like a beautiful painting': image of New Year's mayhem in Manchester goes viral | UK news | The Guardian
[ symptom ] Quoted by the Manchester Evening News, Goodman he said the appeal of the image might lie in its unusual subject matter. “There are plenty of photographs published that show people having a great time. It’s much safer and easier photographing happy, willing people posing than photographing angry, drunk people candid. “That’s not a criticism of the former, but it’s one reason why the latter might stand out.” He said he was “flattered” that his photograph had been compared to Renaissance art, but said he was merely “in the right place at the right time”. Or as American photographic pioneer Ansell Adams put it: “Sometimes I arrive just when God’s ready to have someone click the shutter.”

'Mad Friday': Christmas revellers given alcohol warning - BBC News
The last weekend before the Christmas holiday could see alcohol-fuelled emergencies increase by up to 50%, officials believe. Alcohol sales across December could reach £2.3bn, health campaigners say. Public Health England has urged people to join its "Dry January" campaign to give up alcohol in the new year. According to figures from Public Health England and Alcohol Concern, alcohol sales in pubs, clubs, restaurants and hotels across the UK increased by 142% on the final Friday before Christmas last year. [...] "A period of abstinence could help encourage less harmful, better drinking habits in the long-term - even six months later, evidence from Dry January shows that more than two-thirds of participants are still drinking less. "As the festive season continues, we're urging people to take a break and get their 2016 off to a positive start by signing up for Dry January."

Europa: Arme und weniger gebildete Menschen sterben häufiger an Alkohol - SPIEGEL ONLINE
In den meisten europäischen Ländern leben gebildete und wohlhabende Menschen länger als Menschen mit niedrigem sozioökonomischem Status. Ein Grund für diesen Unterschied scheint im Alkoholkonsum zu liegen. [...] Sozial besser gestellte Menschen trinken demnach zwar häufiger und zum Teil auch mehr als Menschen mit geringerem Bildungsgrad. Laut den Forschern sind problematische Trinkgewohnheiten - etwa das Komasaufen - in unteren sozialen Gruppen jedoch weiter verbreitet. Verhalten wie dieses steigert die alkoholbedingten Gesundheitsprobleme. [...] Ungleichheit zwischen den sozialen Gruppen verstärkt.

'Political courage' on drink pricing policy praised - BBC News
Although MSPs passed a law in 2012 imposing a minimum unit price to try to cut the harm it can cause, its implementation has been held up by a legal challenge from the Scotch Whisky Association. [...] "Importantly, we can pay tribute to the Scottish government for the political courage it has shown to implement appropriate policy in the face of stiff opposition by the drinks industry." [...] Research shows that exposure to alcohol marketing increases the likelihood that young people will start to drink, and to drink more if they are already drinking. Alcohol is the world's fifth leading risk factor for disease, injury and disability. In eastern Europe, most of Latin America and southern sub-Saharan Africa it is the leading cause.

European court opinion due on minimum alcohol pricing - BBC News
Legislation to bring in a minimum unit price of 50p was passed by the Scottish Parliament in May 2012. But a legal challenge was brought by the Scotch Whisky Association (SWA), which argued it breached European law. [...] The Scottish government, which has argued that minimum pricing is vital to address Scotland's "unhealthy relationship with drink", has been unable to implement the policy while the legal process is ongoing. The SWA's legal bid has been backed by other European wine and spirits producers. The industry body has described the legislation, which is supported by health professionals and the police, as "un-targeted, misguided and illegal", and argues that it acts as a barrier to trade.

Cancer risk 'even from light drinking' - BBC News
The work in the British Medical Journal looked at two large US studies involving more than 100,000 adults. The clearest link was for breast cancer. Experts say the findings reinforce the health message that people should limit how much they drink and have some alcohol-free days. There is no guaranteed safe level of drinking, but if you drink within the recommended daily limits, the risks of harming your health are low, they say. [...] Dr Richard Roope, of the Royal College of GPs, said: "GPs do not want to be killjoys - but we want our patients to live long and healthy lives, and lifestyle habits, such as smoking and drinking alcohol, are very real risk factors in developing cancer that can't be ignored." // &! http://nutritionfacts.org/?s=alcohol

Doctors call for new tax on sugary food and drinks - BBC News
Doctors have called for the introduction of a tax on sugary food and drinks to tackle what they describe as an "obesity epidemic". The Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh warned that being overweight may now be considered "the norm". It claimed a tax would help fund the "spiralling" healthcare costs associated with the problem. The British Soft Drinks Association (BSDA) insisted that the case is "not compelling". It cited research which suggested a 20% tax would save just four calories per day. Liverpool University chair of clinical epidemiology, Simon Capewell, is due to speak at a conference on the issue in Edinburgh later, entitled: "Obesity: A 21st Century Epidemic". [ ... rootless tax evaders crony capitalists have stake and no shared economic long-term interest ... capitalism has no selfl-imiter ...]

What’s at Stake in the Ellen Pao Case | Re/code
the clubby world of venture capital, a male-dominated culture that has often been criticized as an insular fraternity of privileged white men despite its veneer of being a meritocracy. [...] While gender inequality has always been an issue in Silicon Valley, it has now come to dominate more of the conversation in the industry. Venture capital firms in particular have appallingly few female partners. [...] But Kleiner Perkins still has more to lose. Though it is an icon of Silicon Valley, having provided funding for historic winners like Netscape, AOL, Amazon, Sun and Google, it has, in recent years, been upstaged by younger and flashier firms. Being cast as a bastion of old-world discrimination does little to improve the image.

Venture capital and the great big Silicon Valley asshole game | PandoDaily
(( via pando.com/2015/02/12/how-silicon-valleys-counterculture-went-corporate-and-ruined-everything/ )) --- This is a complex topic with no real “right” or “wrong.” You have to consider what the job of a VC is. It’s not to give inner city kids a helping hand; it’s not to make mom-and-pop dreams a reality; it’s not to help nice guys. It’s to maximize returns and fund companies that have an outsized chance of creating billion-dollar plus outcomes in a decade or less. There is a certain personality type that frequently builds these companies—a mix of outsized arrogance, steel-eyed determination, and even some element of delusion. Rational thinkers don’t usually think they can upend whole industries. People who get impacted by social pressure will be talked out of an idea long before it comes to fruition.
