Anger after key plan to tackle childhood obesity delayed again
[ obesity/diet-related diseases (chronic) to bankrupt NHS ] Theresa May will delay publishing the Government’s long awaited Childhood Obesity Strategy until the autumn, despite pleas from the head of the NHS to act to protect the most vulnerable children in society. On Tuesday NHS England Chief Executive Simon Stevens called for the plan to be unveiled, saying the obesity crisis costs the taxpayer more than the police and fire services combined.

NHS budget control 'will require staff cuts'
It says the government should be honest about NHS spending plans at a time when patient demand is rising. [...] The NHS leadership is set to unveil plans to get hospitals and other trusts to stick to agreed spending limits. In the last financial year, trusts ran up a collective deficit of £2.4bn - and the aim is to cut that figure significantly. [...] "It is no longer credible to argue that the NHS can continue to meet increasing demand for services, deliver current standards of care and stay within its budget. This is widely understood within the NHS and now needs to be debated with the public. "There are no easy choices, but it would be disastrous to adopt a mindset that fails to acknowledge the serious state of the NHS in England today." //&! bbc.in/29mkr7G - An overspend would be a serious breach of Whitehall protocol and lead to senior officials being hauled over the coals by the National Audit Office.

The Fed Sends A Frightening Letter To JPMorgan, Corporate Media Yawns
At the top of page 11, the Federal regulators reveal that they have “identified a deficiency” in JPMorgan’s wind-down plan which if not properly addressed could “pose serious adverse effects to the financial stability of the United States.” Why didn’t JPMorgan’s Board of Directors or its legions of lawyers catch this?

It’s important to parse the phrasing of that sentence. The Federal regulators didn’t say JPMorgan could pose a threat to its shareholders or Wall Street or the markets. It said the potential threat was to “the financial stability of the United States.” [...] “…the default of a bank with a higher connectivity index would have a greater impact on the rest of the banking system because its shortfall would spill over onto other financial institutions, creating a cascade that could lead to further defaults.

Fruit juice isn't much better for you than soda. Let's stop pretending otherwise.
UK Gov PDF >> bit.ly/1MJYJ6q // This article in BMJ Open demonstrated the extent of the problem: The researchers looked at how much of the American diet is composed of ultra-processed foods and added sugars. They found that 58 percent of total energy intake — more than half of the calories Americans consume! — came from foods that are packed with lots of flavors, colors, and sweeteners. And almost 90 percent of the added sugars Americans consume came from heavily processed foods — the two main sources being soft drinks (17 percent) closely followed by fruit drinks (14 percent). (In this case, "fruit drinks" refers to processed juices with added sugars.) To be clear: Soda remains a big public health threat. As Marion Nestle, a New York University professor and author of the new book Soda Politics. points out, "Sales of [soda alternatives] are up, but not nearly so much as to compensate for the decline in Coke and Pepsi." ... via andi bellatti - bit.ly/1pQAajC

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.

Sugar tax: What is the UK's most sugary drink?
One of the highest levels of sugar is found in Old Jamaica Ginger Beer. Its Extra Fiery drink has 15.7g - or just under four teaspoons - of sugar per 100ml. The recommended maximum daily sugar intake for someone over the age of 11 is 30g a day, or 7.5 teaspoons. [...] Some manufacturers are adding sugar substitute stevia to their drinks to make up for a shortfall in sweetness when they reduce the sugar content, he says.

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.

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."

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.

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.

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?

Unilever boss warns UK against sugar tax | Business | The Guardian
[ sprinkling doubt. Mexico and France has good case for it. ] Paul Polman says the tax is ‘not the holy grail’ and there is little evidence around the world such a levy can actually tackle Britain’s obesity crisis [...] However, the chief executive said a sugar tax was not the “holy grail” and insisted that the countries that have introduced it, such as Mexico, are not seeing obvious benefits. [ it's about long-term, one step at a time, Sugar Tax is a start ] [...] [ lobby acitivities ] The food and drink industry has been in talks with the government about a national obesity strategy, but it is against demands for an arbitrary reduction in sugar content across the board. Companies such as Coca-Cola have suggested they aim to cut 20% of the sugar in the existing diet of a consumer by a combination of reformulating their products and promoting low-sugar alternatives such as Diet Coke.

Enzyme that 'stops sugar being stored as fat' is identified by scientists : science
An addicts way of life. Take something to combat the addiction. Like the main character in Mr. Robot. Even if, you still stab your pancreas every time with processed and engineered food. Meaning you will end up as normal weight type 2 diabetic. And still have elevated inflammatory markers with less fat covering your organs. Meaning higher risk for cancer. Oh, and it doesn't help with colon and rectal cancer either. To reduce that type of risk you would have to eat a Whole-Food Plant-Based Diet (see nutritionfacts.org) All those research grants because the medical profession doesn't trust people to change their diet and lifestyle for the better, before they are even obese.

There has been an increase in the proportion who are overweight or obese among both sexes (aged 16-64) since 1995, from 52% to 63%. Most of this increase was seen between 1995 and 2008, with figures remaining broadly stable since then. // Obesity could be costing Scotland up to £4.6bn a year, according to a new report. The figure came in a Scottish Parliament briefing which said the problem was putting a "significant and growing burden" on the nation. [...] The government launched a strategy in 2010 to tackle Scotland's "obesity time bomb". [ bbc.in/1YBueVs << LOL !!! ] The new report, produced by the Scottish Parliament Information Centre (Spice), said the problem could be costing the NHS as much as £600m a year.

[...] /// Instead it says increasing the tax on alcohol tax could be justified as it would combat alcohol misuse and wouldn't restrict the market. /// [...] Alison Douglas, chief executive of Alcohol Focus Scotland [...] minimum pricing was a better measure than alcohol taxes, which are "limited in their ability to raise the price of the cheapest alcohol to a level that will actually reduce harm". [SWA] had "blocked the democratic will of the Scottish Parliament and sacrificed public health to protect their members' profits".

Nesquik bunny ad banned over ‘great start to the day’ claim | Media | The Guardian
Use of cartoon rabbit and suggestion that chocolate drink was a suitable regular breakfast option encouraged poor nutritional habits in children, says ASA [...] The Children’s Food Campaign complained to the Advertising Standards Authority that the promotion, particularly the use of the bunny character and the “great start” claim, encouraged poor nutritional habits in children. Nestlé denied the accusation, saying the bunny was not the main focus of the ad and it had been “carefully designed to convey a physically active, energetic character who could promote a healthy lifestyle”. [...] “Because the product was high in added sugar, we considered that the suggestion that Nesquik was a suitable regular breakfast option for children encouraged poor nutritional habits in children and the ad therefore should not have appeared at all,” said the ASA.

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.

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.

One-fifth of youngsters suffer from 'high anxiety' - BBC News
The study looked at the wellbeing and mental health of 7.5 million young people in the UK aged 16 to 24. [...] The figures also show a rising proportion of young people who felt dissatisfied with their health. [...] The figures from the ONS show a picture of a growing number of young people who are satisfied with their lives - but with a persistent minority reporting unhappiness or suffering from anxiety. [...] Campus anxiety [...] But in terms of anxiety, 18% report high levels of anxiety and almost 16% have "medium" levels of anxiety. In a separate measure, there are almost 21% of young people with "evidence indicating depression or anxiety". And young people's perceptions of their own physical health seemed to be progressively more negative, with more expressing dissatisfaction and fewer feeling satisfied. [F]igures for the wellbeing of younger children which showed about one in eight youngsters between the ages of 10 and 15 reported symptoms of mental ill-health.

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.

NHS and care sector: Safety a 'big concern' in England - BBC News
[ NHS set-up to fail by Tories budget cuts over last 5 years ] bbc.in/1VWVnB2 &! bbc.in/1LplwDz - Heath chairman Sarah Wollaston on NHS England funding 15 October 2015 Last updated at 16:21 BST At least £4bn of the extra money promised for the NHS in England is needed this year, says Conservative MP Sarah Wollaston. The chair of the health select committee told Jo Coburn: "If it all comes on stream at the end the NHS is going to be in very serious financial difficulty, so we need to have some of that earmarked to come on stream early." They also spoke about contracts for junior doctors - with the Conservative MP explaining that her GP daughter has gone to work in Australia - and a "culture of transparency" in health services in their Daily Politics interview.

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. The money raised elsewhere in the city from the charge will be paid into the Children's Health Fund. Statistics have shown that one in four children in Brighton and Hove are already overweight or obese by the time they leave primary school. [...] "We don't know where it is [...]"
