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.

Edible Education 101: Michael Pollan (2015) - YouTube
'production and consumption (of what types of food) is the key to most things that is on our mind as society - climate change, health & well being, income, food, - are all related.' // livestock farming is 2nd biggest contributor to CO2 emissions (global warming), what we put in our mouths and whether we are active or sedentary determines our happiness, well being and health and in what way we grow old (sick and kept alive) or actually enjoying your old age. // food industry has no shared economic interest and is not a stakeholder because it is a rootless corporate conglomerate that evades taxation and lobbies for subsidies and also thus evades possible prosecution when wrongdoing/negligence is clear, oversight and transparency - exploits unsustainable - money (or stored value in fiat 'container') doesnt have 2 deal with ecological/environmental disaster & economic damage &! personal identity social status = meat consumption! + marketing + peer pressure

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.

▶ Michael Sandel: Why we shouldn't trust markets with our civic life - YouTube
n the past three decades, says Michael Sandel, the US has drifted from a market economy to a market society; it's fair to say that an American's experience of shared civic life depends on how much money they have. (Three key examples: access to education, access to justice, political influence.) In a talk and audience discussion, Sandel asks us to think honestly on this question: In our current democracy, is too much for sale?
