Sugar industry withheld research effects of sucrose 50 years ago, study claims | Science | The Guardian

Cancer tests in supermarket car parks to be launched by NHS | The Independent
- see the caveat of boosing your survival, measured by 5 years only from diagnoses, to diagnose earlier ... patient will still die from mostly majority of lung cancers anyway after the 5 year mark. but statistically counted as survivor. it is farcical. unethical moral especially considering anyways deadly diseases. does not help mental and well being. especially normal folk don't understand medical statistics cancer and evidence-based medicine. and ct scan(s) are NOT harmless, duh. Sure you identified a risk group smokers and ex smokers. but you don't do active screening for tgct for undescended testicle patients. see also the debate and conclusive evidence about breast cancer self-examination and mammography (nil benefit for the patient, over treatment over mis diagnoses, unneccesary interventions). &! https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/4968781/early-cancer-detection-survival-rate/

Finance trumps patients at every level – UK healthcare needs an inquiry | Aseem Malhotra | Healthcare Professionals Network | The Guardian
tl;dr Diet & Lifestyle changes of the nation in the short-, medium- and long-term term can help (substantially) save the NHS. // A full public inquiry on the scale of Chilcot into the Iraq war may ultimately be required to overhaul a system where at every level financial interest continues to trump what’s best for patients – not only to improve the quality of care, but to restore trust in medical research. Until then, NHS England, the BMA and the Department of Health must make it a national priority to emphasise to patients that less medicine and healthier lifestyles are the most important solutions to sustaining the NHS. // statistics use in medical research and patient selection and reporting issue. absolute risk v % of all patients. // Such statistical and health illiteracy, far from being the exception, is actually the norm. The majority of healthcare professionals seem unable to understand medical literature. One study revealed 70% of those on a training programme failed a simple test on their understanding of evidence-based medicine.

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? ]

How The Socialist Surge is Growing - YouTube
via Robert Reich on.fb.me/1Pn6XFK - According to a New York Times investigation reported this morning, just 358 families and the businesses they control have contributed over half the money to the 2016 presidential election so far – mostly to Republicans who have pledged to pare regulations; cut taxes on income, capital gains and inheritances; and shrink Social Security and Medicare. On the other hand, two-thirds of Americans support higher taxes on those earning $1 million or more a year, according to a June New York Times/CBS News poll, and six in 10 favor more government intervention to reduce the gap between the rich and the poor. And according to the Pew Research Center, nearly seven in 10 favor preserving Social Security and Medicare benefits as they are. To an extent we haven’t seen since the Gilded Age of the 1890s, the upcoming election is between a tiny group of super-rich and the rest of us. We must do everything possible to reclaim our democracy.

Motorists 'tricked' in car test abuses, claims report - BBC News
Motorists are being "tricked" by carmakers into buying vehicles which claim to be more fuel efficient than they really are, a new report claims. Transport & Environment said Europe's carmakers routinely abused tests on fuel performance and CO2 emissions. The lobby group found an average 40% gap between the fuel and C02 emitted in lab tests against road driving. The Brussels-based Transport & Environment said drivers are spending €450 (£331m) a year more than expected on fuel. Over the lifetime of a car, this adds up to an average €2,800 for additional fuel, the report found. "Carmakers are effectively cheating their own customers," the report said. "There is a need for a new [emissions] test but what we're also seeing here is a distortion of the current system. "The independent agencies [in Europe] that oversee the tests are paid for by the car industry themselves. --- 'Tip of the iceberg' = VW

Staatsverschuldung als Problem der Generationengerechtigkeit | Lars P. Feld | SWR Tele-Akademie - YouTube
henry paulson and tim geithner said they are in a moral hazard. put it the way to either nationalise (aka the end of American Dream, Failure part of capitalism) or bailout (gov loans and co like TARP). Rather the moral hazard was to either put current and future unborn generation in debt servitude they had nothing to do with and keep criminals private with all its benefits. Or really give a warning shot a privatise banks and end the profligacy of crony capitalism and Wall Streets shareholder value creation only and profit maximisation - without consequences. // and Europe looks towards USA and did the same; made banks whole again (because they were really - TBTF - and would pushed some EU countries into Great Depression/Insolvency. especially France & Belgium where bank liabilities were too big for public balance sheet) and took some of the debt onto its public balance sheet (and gave bailout loans) to be served by current & future unborn generation.

Kara Swisher has lost. | PandoDaily
As Fortune’s Dan Primack points out, as part of Vox, Re/Code now has investors in common with “Square, Uber, Dropbox, Spotify, Instacart, Jawbone, Lookout, Flipkart, etc.” We can argue — and I do, obviously — that having investors in common with companies you cover, or even having investors you cover, is a conflict that can be managed with fierce reporting and clear disclosures. The best example I can offer is that Pando has investors in common with both Uber and Secret. Swisher and Mossberg have made clear they see things differently: Journalism will always suffer when there are investors in common. // &! recode.net/2015/05/26/a-note-to-our-readers/ &! qz.com/412195/comcast-investor-in-vox-media-and-recode-could-end-up-buying-them-both/ &! pando.com/2015/05/27/with-buzzfeed-announcing-ipo-plans-and-comcast-interested-in-vox-let-the-dystopian-future-of-media-begin/

Many businesses do not fear leaving the EU - BBC News
Lord Bamford (JCB) "We are the fifth or sixth largest economy in the world. We could exist on our own - peacefully and sensibly." This is a key part of the "nothing to fear" argument about the EU and I suspect it will be a strong theme for those who do not reject EU exit out of hand. Interestingly, the "nothing to fear" formulation has been deployed in the past by two figures who will have considerable sway on the issue within government. One is Sajid Javid, the new business secretary. And the other is Jim O'Neill, the former chairman of Goldman Sachs Asset Management, who was announced last week as the new commercial secretary to the Treasury, a job with a particular focus on developing economic growth outside London and the South East of England. // bbc.in/1ILfTkx - JCB boss says UK should not fear EU exit - JCB boss is one of Tories (Conservative Party) biggest donor // many MPs sit on boards of UK public companies as 2nd job bbc.in/1JtGLq3

As I lay dying - LA Times
"The most powerful organization in the breast cancer universe, Susan G. Komen , has raised $2.5 billion over the last 20 years, much more than many corporations will ever earn. Yet Komen channels only a fraction of those funds into research or systems to help those who are already seriously sick. Most of that money continues to go to a breast cancer “awareness” campaign that is now painfully out of date."

Today's Uncertain Future Calls For Observation and Patience, Not Boldness and Strategy | BillMoyers.com
Not one of the signature foreign policy initiatives conceived in Obama’s first term has borne fruit. When it came to making a fresh start with the Islamic world, responsibly ending the “dumb” war in Iraq (while winning the “necessary” one in Afghanistan), “resetting” US-Russian relations, and “pivoting” toward Asia, mark your scorecard zero for four. There’s no doubt that when Kerry arrived at the State Department he brought with him some much-needed energy. That he is giving it his all — the department’s website reports that the secretary has already clocked over 682,000 miles of travel — is doubtless true as well. The problem is the absence of results. Remember when his signature initiative was going to be an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal? Sadly, that quixotic plan, too, has come to naught.

Auschwitz: Night Will Fall von Hitchcock über Holocaust und KZ - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Schreckliches Superlativ "German Concentration Camp Factual Survey", das war der nüchterne Titel des britischen Projektes, Alfred Hitchcock war als "beratender Regisseur" vorgesehen, der aus den Schreckensbildern einen Film formen sollte. Doch der Starregisseur war in Hollywood und kam erst Ende Juni 1945 in England an, knapp zwei Monate nach Kriegsende. Zu diesem Zeitpunkt waren zwei Dinge passiert: Es war klar, dass die Deutschen nicht gedemütigt werden sollten, sondern gebraucht wurden, als Bollwerk gegen die Sowjets - sie sollten nicht als die Monster gezeigt werden, die sie waren. Und, auch das macht der Film deutlich: Die Juden sollten nicht als die Opfer gezeigt werden, die sie waren, weil die Situation in Palästina für die Briten immer problematischer wurde, je mehr Juden in das Land drängten. Der Film, der zu grausam war für diese Welt, wurde nie gezeigt. Realpolitik hatte den surrealen Horror ersetzt.

Böses Blut - Kehrtwende in der Intensivmedizin - Reportage & Dokumentation - ARD | Das Erste
Bluttransfusionen können Leben retten, keine Frage. Nach Unfällen und großen Operationen gleichen sie bedrohliche Blutverluste aus. Immer mehr Analysen aber bestätigen: Bluttransfusionen können gefährlich sein. Lebensgefährlich. Die Patienten ahnen davon nichts - und weder die Ärzte noch die Betreiber des Blutspende-Systems haben großes Interesse an Aufklärung. Die einen wollen mangels Alternativen nicht unnötig Panik schüren, die anderen sorgen sich um ihr Geschäftsmodell. Blutspenden werden auch in Zukunft für Notfälle gebraucht. Die SWR-Dokumentation von Ulrike Gehring zeigt, dass dennoch ein Umdenken in der Intensivmedizin unausweichlich ist. Sie zeigt bisher unbekannte Risiken von Transfusionen auf und stellt eine Gruppe mutiger Ärzte vor, die gemeinsam an Alternativen arbeiten. Und dabei auf viele Widerstände stoßen. &! http://www.daserste.de/information/reportage-dokumentation/dokus/sendung/swr/24112014-boeses-blut-blutspenden-die-unerkannte-gefahr-100.html

BBC News - Study: US is an oligarchy, not a democracy

So concludes a recent study by Princeton University Prof Martin Gilens and Northwestern University Prof Benjamin I Page. This is not news, you say. Perhaps, but the two professors have conducted exhaustive research to try to present data-driven support for this conclusion. Here's how they explain it: Multivariate analysis indicates that economic elites and organised groups representing business interests have substantial independent impacts on US government policy, while average citizens and mass-based interest groups have little or no independent influence. In English: the wealthy few move policy, while the average American has little power. &! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Citizens_United_v._Federal_Election_Commission

Lobbyismus: EU-Politikerin Sharon Bowles wechselt zur Londoner Börse - SPIEGEL ONLINE
"Die LSE hat Sharon Bowles eingekauft - die Frau, die unsere internen Besprechungen im Parlament und alle Kniffe kennt, die weiß, wie man unseren neuen Gesetzen die Zähne zieht", sagt Sven Giegold, finanz- und wirtschaftspolitischer Sprecher der Grünen im Europaparlament. "Vor nicht einmal zwei Monaten war sie noch eine von uns, jetzt hat sie ihren guten Ruf verkauft. Solche Seitenwechsel beschädigen die Demokratie." Olivier Hoedeman von der Lobbykritiker-Organisation Corporate Europe Observatory wirft Bowles vor, sie untergrabe den Ruf des Parlaments.

Dank eines offenen Übersetzungskanals konnten die anwesenden Journalisten den Gedankenaustausch über den israelischen Politiker Benjamin Netanjahu fleißig mitschreiben.
