This Week in Health: Clearing up misperceptions about Zika virus
[A] closer look at President Obama's "Cancer Moonshot," - criticism is about focus on treatment (extending life) and nothing at prevention (90% of cases are not genetic, rather environment, exposure, lifestyle, diet). Breast Cancer lots of public activism, not so w bladder cancer. sustainability of investment over 20 years will be important, changing lifestyle habits does not take 20 years.

Organ donation bill 'unhelpful and potentially damaging' - BBC News
[ other countries who have an opt-out system implemented have seen their transplant rates rise ] A bill currently going through the assembly proposes that everyone will be on the organ donation register unless they opt out. But some of Northern Ireland's most senior clinicians have been warning Stormont's health committee that the bill is unhelpful and potentially damaging. Dr Paul Glover, the regional clinical lead on organ donation, said he believes the bill "in isolation" will fail. "It will have to be underpinned by education," he said. "We have to have society talking about organ donations, talking to family, making their wishes known. "This is about changing society - it's not about saying this is the law, therefore this is what we must do. This is about the positivity of it, coming from society up." //&! bbc.in/1mITlJW &! bbc.in/1UzVe6A

Suspended BBC journalist breaks silence over Tyson Fury comments · PinkNews
[ Platforming, see paris lees on Germaine Greer and platforming for wrong people ... ] The Newsline journalist was since suspended, and had previously said he was not allowed to comment on the controversy. But in a new YouTube video, West did comment, saying: “I’m not really meant to say anything, but I wanted to just say that I chose between being an objective journalist and being a human being with thoughts and opinions with principles.” He went on: “I shouldn’t have given my opinion on something that was current” but said that at the same time he “couldn’t forget the little boy I was when I was nine or 10 at school and I was being bullied for being camp and being gay”. The video now appears to have been deleted from West’s YouTube page.

Patients less satisfied by GPs who refuse antibiotics - BBC News
[ quick fix society. rather pop a pill than not eat bacon for breakfast. show how much GP's have to change set-up and be incentivised 2 help people change. ] The study, published in the British Journal of General Practice, compared the prescribing rates of more than 95% of all GP surgeries in England to a survey of patient satisfaction. Those satisfaction scores are used to determine how much GPs get paid. Patients' satisfaction rose when they were listened to or carefully examined. A study last year warned that up to half of all prescriptions of antibiotics could be inappropriate - given to patients suffering coughs, colds, sore throats and the flu - none of which can be treated with antibiotics. The overuse of antibiotics has led to antibiotic resistance, when bacteria and infections can no longer be killed off or treated with strong drugs. In this study, doctors who prescribed 25% fewer antibiotics saw a modest reduction in patient satisfaction with them or with their surgery.

Rules banning gay and bisexual men from giving blood to be reviewed | Politics | The Guardian
A spokesperson for the gay rights campaign group Stonewall said: “We want a donation system that is fair and based on up-to-date medical evidence. Currently gay and bi people cannot give blood if they have had sex in the past 12 months, regardless of whether they used protection. Yet straight people who may have had unprotected sex can donate. “These current rules are clearly unfair and we want to see people asked similar questions, irrespective of their sexual orientation, to accurately assess the risk of infection. Screening all donors by sexual behaviour rather than by sexual orientation would increase blood stocks in times of shortage and create a safer supply by giving a more accurate, non-discriminatory assessment.”

Heart disease is still happening with what he eats ...& he is also a confessed smoker. 1/3rd of all heart disease-related deaths are attributed to smoking. He is 56. A person of his age with a poverty background probably did not really want to go to the hospital for the chest pain because he feared for his job/income to pay the bills & would have dropped eventually dead, literally, at work or on way to work. QUESTION IS, is he so smart & self-aware/introspective to change his ways? AFTER A TRIPLE BYPASS! saw open chest, take veins from thigh, re] Bob Mortimer [undergone] a triple heart bypass operation.

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!]

Rezension ǀ Was wäre ein selbstbestimmtes Leben? — der Freitag
Rezension Michael Pauens und Harald Welzers Schrift "Autonomie" verteidigt den Mut, sich seiner eigenen Autonomie zu bedienen [...] Zwischen derartigen Gewissensfragen erstreckt sich der Handlungsspielraum, um den es Michael Pauen und Harald Welzer in ihrem Buch "Autonomie. Eine Verteidigung" geht: Selbstbestimmung trotz Gefahr für das eigene Leben und das der Liebsten, innere Unabhängigkeit und Mündigkeit trotz der Gefahr der sozialen Isolation. Diese Erörterung ist so notwendig wie schwierig. Denn so notwendig und wertvoll Autonomie auf der einen Seite ist, so schwierig zu begreifen ist sie auf der anderen. Zwei Beispiele unter vielen: Handelt ein Veganer autonom? [...] Autonomie, so die Prämisse von und Pauen/Welzer, sei erstens eine Errungenschaft und zweites als solche stets wiederherzustellen.

Massentierhaltung Was hat liberale Ideengeschichte mit deutscher Geflügel-Industrie zu tun? Über absurde PR [...] Nun will die Geflügel-Industrie, unter ihnen das Unternehmen Wiesenhof, die Zielgruppe der Bildungsbürger erreichen. Sie schaltet Anzeigen unter anderem in der Zeit und der Süddeutschen. Die Website geflügel-charta.de enthält Texte, deren Länge sich offenbar bewusst den Gesetzen der Aufmerksamkeitsökonomie in der digitalen Welt zu widersetzen beabsichtigt. Die Sprache ist oft ulkig akademisch. In dem angeschlossenen Blog fällt einmal zum Beispiel der Ausdruck „ideengeschichtliche Hintergrundfolien“. [...] Die Industrie bekennt sich zur Einhaltung gesetzlicher Standards im Tierrecht. Immerhin. .... [...] Neben diesen Bekenntnissen bringt sich die Geflügel-Industrie als Ernährerin von künftig neun Milliarden Erdbewohnern ins Spiel, wegen ihrer hohen „Ressourceneffizienz“. Mit Rindern verglichen mag das stimmen, im Vergleich mit Gemüse eher nicht.

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.

Britain's water crisis | Nick Davies | Environment | The Guardian
The immediate cause of the early drying out at the source of the Ouse was simply that there was not enough water in the underground aquifer on which it feeds. But that turns out to be part of something bigger. In March 2013, the local branch of the Environment Agency reported that, depending on conditions, there are now years when they can extract water from the Ouse on no more than 94 days. For the rest of the year, abstractors can use water that has been stored during the wet months in the big reservoir at Ardingly, and they can pump up water through boreholes sunk into the underground aquifers. This in turn reduces the amount of water that bubbles up into the river and its tributaries. The Environment Agency has stopped issuing new abstraction licences for the river. Meanwhile, during the summer months, nearly half of what we like to describe as a river is, in fact, recycled waste water and sewage. [...] [south-east and south] “serious water stress”

WHO | A call for higher taxes on tobacco
Dr Margaret Chan and Mike Bloomberg call for higher taxes on tobacco. The evidence is clear: raising tobacco taxes cuts usage, encourages smokers to quit and discourages young people from picking up the habit in the first place. The United Nations ought to encourage countries to raise tobacco taxes to support the world’s Sustainable Development Goals and reduce tobacco use.

The health implications of the diesel scandal - BBC News
[ http://www.spiegel.de/thema/abgasaffaere_bei_volkswagen/ ] The diesel scandal started as a worry for car owners. Yet, according to Prof Alistair Lewis, an air pollution expert at the University of York, "it is overwhelmingly a health story". The costs of not doing more to tackle air pollution can be measured in "thousands of deaths and billions of pounds, all passed on to the taxpayer", he says. "The real costs here are the ones the taxpayer picks up in terms of providing extra healthcare," he explains. "The only reason we measure NO2 (nitrogen dioxide) and particulates is because they are harmful to health." //&! youtu.be/HG8Kpfs4ZYs - Krank dank VW?

VIDEO: ‘Days of Revolt’ With Chris Hedges: ISIS, the New Israel - Truthdig
https://youtu.be/Go5vYcrwlOM // Hedges begins by pointing out how the Sykes-Picot agreement of 1916, responsible for “carving up the Middle East and turning countries into protectorates,” has been changed only twice—once with the Israeli independence and now with Islamic State. As Hedges put it, the tactics used to redraw the map in the Middle East are both effective and familiar, including the “use of foreign money, use of foreign fighters, tactics of ethnic cleansing and terrorism and this mythical vision—in the case of Israel, the recreation of Judea and Sumeria from the Bible, and in the case of ISIS, the recreation of the seventh-century caliphate.” Alnasseri agrees, opening his response with the observation that “to understand the pheonomenon of ISIS, we need to contextualize it within the setbacks and counter-revolution against the Arab revolutions.“ [...] 'Iraq can not be re-united.'

NHS to begin denying people hearing aids for first time | Society | The Guardian
[ From January 2015 - bit.ly/13RgSyy - NHS accused of ‘cruel’ rationing of hearing aids ] [ NHS services, yet another example, is being rationed. Because budget is blown on chronic diseases caused mainly by diet and sedentary lifestyle. NHS CEO did say prevention is not addressed properly of how big the lever actually is long-term! ] The NHS will start denying people with hearing problems access to hearing aids for the first time from Thursday in a controversial move that critics claim will worsen sufferers’ social isolation. The GP-led NHS clinical commissioning group in North Staffordshire is taking the unprecedented step of ceasing to provide free hearing aids to mainly elderly people in its area with mild hearing loss. It is also making it harder for those with moderate hearing loss to get access to hearing aids by introducing new eligibility criteria against which patients will be judged.

[...] Prof Kevin Fenton, director of health and wellbeing at Public Health England, said the UK was currently behind on cancer survival rates compared with other European countries.

Is it HEALTHY to have Obese role models? Tess Munster - YouTube
fat shaming (does not help, ultimately) is not enlightenment (public education and personal self-education, reading up how you harm yourself and people from high up & ur parents have poisoned you since your inception (epigenetics, pollution)), medical intervention, helping someone when you were in their shoes and found help and or helped yourself. Only YOU YOURSELF can be of true interest about YOUR health, because it is your life, your health, your well being, happiness, your disposable income not to spend on medical care. Not food multinational conglomerates owned by a handful shareholders! Theyre not interested in ur health or the nations exploding health care spending. They are interested in maintaining the status quo. Dividends. Profits. Less regulation & oversight. Rising share price. Share buybacks. As child ur indoctrinated, by those people. Because they HOLD the power. There is no broccoli lobby. How abt frame lobby involvement in food pyramid as nanny state by food giants!?

Jeremy Hunt breezes through MPs' health check | Politics | The Guardian
Giving evidence before Tuesday’s health select committee, Hunt gave the impression of it only being a matter of time before he learned to walk on water. He breezed in, his trademark grin revealing gleaming white teeth, as if he were hosting a departmental drinks party. Which he almost could have been. The two-hour session that had once looked as if it might get a little sticky as the committee unpicked the details of his NHS reforms, was going to be a walk in the park. Not because Sarah Wollaston or her other committee members were anything other than forensic in their questioning, but because no one in the rest of the country was paying the slightest attention. [...] Hunt began in buoyant form, suggesting that despite an ageing population, a lack of money and rising expectations, the NHS had never been in better health.

UK businesses should highlight upsides of staying in the EU, says pressure group | Business | The Guardian
Rudd was responding to a report in the Financial Times (paywall) suggesting that David Cameron and his advisers are urging business leaders not to speak out in favour of the country remaining in the EU for fear they will damage the prime minister’s sensitive negotiations. [ // in the office for the sake of being in office ] [...] However, the prime minister’s team is concerned that if business speaks up in favour of remaining in the EU, it could hamper the renegotiation process. Sajid Javid, the business secretary, has already rebuked the CBI for its enthusiastic stance. Mathew Elliott, the head of Business for Britain and the founder and former chief executive of the Taxpayers’ Alliance, is also set to launch a business no campaign within the next few weeks, so yes campaigners are reluctant to give him an open field.

[...] "What lies behind these figures is a cruel climate generated by some politicians and sections of the media that seeks to demonise those in need and undermine public confidence in our welfare state," [...] In 2012 a government advisor appointed to review the Government’s Work Capability Assessment said the tests were causing suffering by sending sick people back to work inappropriately. // [ privatisation and profiteering ] // Mr Duncan Smith arguing that the previous cash level created a “perverse incentive”. // &! bit.ly/1Ik0ovC &! bit.ly/1fJlfSe - More than 80 people a month are now dying after being declared ‘fit for work’.

Wandel der Trinkgewohnheiten - The European
Krankenhauseinweisungen wegen Alkoholvergiftung gehen kontinuierlich zurück, immer mehr Jugendliche trinken gar keinen Alkohol oder trinken bewusst maßvoll. „Komasaufen“ ist nicht mehr cool, stattdessen chillen die Kids heute mit angesagten Trendgetränken – ohne Alkohol. Eine Lebenseinstellung, auch gegen das Gewohnte. Jugendliche wollen sich abgrenzen, wollen anders sein als ihre Eltern und Großeltern. Die heutige Jugend schafft das bravourös. Sie entwickelt sich immer mehr zu guten Vorbildern. [...] Das Umdenken beginnt im Kopf! Und die Umsetzung erfolgt in der Gesellschaft. Alkoholfrei zu Trinken ist inzwischen keine „Notlösung“ mehr sondern modern. Diesen Trend hat die Industrie erkannt und agiert geschickt. Endlich setzen die deutschen Brauer auf das richtige Pferd: alkoholfreies Bier für junge Erwachsene.

The lady's not for turning: cinematic portrayals of lesbians need to get real | Film | The Guardian
predatory trope ( a significant or recurrent theme) // "The age difference is stark, but beyond this, the narrative of lesbian conversion is there in all its problematic glory, throwing up questions about sexual identity and coercion. Not only by using an uncomfortable stereotype about predatory lesbians, but also by treating sexual identity as if it were a taste in food: here, try the asparagus; if you eat it enough you might like it. [...] Indeed, the conversion trope itself is probably a response to the difficulty in depicting real lesbian relationships – they have to be couched in stereotypical terms for mainstream audiences to connect with. [...] The recurrence of the cliche is one that will hopefully disappear as being public about your queer identity becomes easier, and we begin to recognise that lesbian women can have boring, conventional love stories just like anyone else."

Is this the end for the Freedom of Information Act? - BBC News
The commission's remit is to look at two substantive issues that officials keep complaining about: "whether the operation of the Act adequately recognises the need for a 'safe space' for policy development and implementation and frank advice", and whether complying with the act is too much of a burden. [...] The safe space? So what about the "safe space" arguments? Under current law, section 35 of the Act allows the withholding of policy development work, private office communications & letters between ministers. If that isn't enough, section 36 allows ministers to withhold other information that would undermine the safe space for discussion. [...] That is, more or less, the information that a good transparency law should publish. It is supposed to help us find cover-ups, incompetence and crookedness by the powerful. [...] there have been no individual releases that have actually caused any problems. [well, if u dont know what 2 ask 4 specifically, u dont ask #insider #whistleblower ]

Tax sugary drinks by 20%, say doctors - BBC News
[health care budget bomb that WILL explode, is already oozing ] An extra 20% tax on sugary drinks should be introduced to tackle the obesity crisis, the British Medical Association says. It estimates poor diets are causing around 70,000 premature deaths each year. In a major report on unhealthy diets, the body called for the extra money raised to be used to subsidise fresh fruit and vegetables. [...] "We're looking at 30% of the UK population being obese by the year 2030, a large extent of that is due to the amount of sugar we're actually consuming without realising. "The biggest problem is a lot of us are unaware of the amount of sugar we are consuming on a day-to-day basis." [...] The government's main approach to obesity has to been to work with the food industry to get it to voluntarily reduce calorie content. [ but a calorie is not a calorie ! stupid ! ] &! bit.ly/1JZFAQS &! bbc.in/1TGifpc - Sugar intake 'should be halved' &! bbc.in/1OlN6Ug - Slim ppl get sick too.

Präventionsgesetz: Mehr Geld für die Gesundheitsvorsorge - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Kita, Schule, Betrieb: Überall soll die Gesundheitsvorsorge eine größere Rolle spielen. Zwei vom Bundesrat verabschiedete Gesetze sollen zudem die Impfbereitschaft verbessern und schnellere Facharzttermine garantieren. [...] Die Kassen hatten zuvor kritisiert, dass rund 35 Millionen Euro zur Bundeszentrale für gesundheitliche Aufklärung (BZgA) fließen sollen. Das sei Quersubventionierung einer Bundesbehörde durch Versichertengelder, sagte der Vorstand des GKV-Spitzenverbands, Gernot Kiefer. Betriebe sollen zudem mehr für die Gesundheit ihrer Mitarbeiter tun - etwa in Form von gesundem Kantinenessen, heißt es auf der Seite des Bundesgesundheitsministeriums. [...] Auch Selbsthilfegruppen werden durch das Gesetz gestärkt.

W. Keith Campbell: The Narcissism Epidemic - YouTube
Social Media = an instant in ones life. not ones life. but this disclosure isn't written in there. under pictures, videos, tweets. + Environment of status symbols, status anxiety, debt fueled (zombie) consumerism. Fast Fashion. Throwaway society. At large not being sustainable. Status quo. Living in the now. Binge Drinking. Keeping up with the John's. Millennials - everyone gets a trophy, even for participation. ... this environment creates a need to display being happy and successful and having everything in life. [...] abundance of digital gossip. whether its whatsapp/sms in own circle at large and in the tabloid [...] 'Narcissism predicts leaders, but not whether they are good or bad.'

Keith Campbell: The Roots of Narcissism - youtu.be/HXbeKKhQXKA - From find meaning in self (actualization) 2 self-expression & display, praise work

The Treasury, the Budget and the NHS - BBC News
[Cost 4 public health care & services are set-up 2 explode bc of sick population. NHS needs 2be funded by Alcohol, Sugar, Tobacco & animal products tax!

As well as subsidize fruit & vegetable prices. & a national years long multi-media campaign & PE@School ] The big decisions on financing the NHS over the next few years are likely to come in the autumn with the departmental spending review. Beyond a restatement of the commitment to an extra £8 billion in 2020 [...] detailed analysis of the financial needs of the NHS in England is underway. Department of Health and Treasury officials are poring over projections for health demand. They need to be sure that the £8 billion identified by NHS chiefs is realistic. That figure was reached after assuming highly ambitious efficiency savings of £22 billion by 2020. Ministers want to be assured that figure is achievable.
