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/

Bluthochdruck: USA senken Richtwerte für Blutdruck - SPIEGEL ONLINE
see rose (chronic) sick population // Auch Paulus Kirchhof, Direktor des Instituts für Herz-Kreislauf-Wissenschaften an der britischen University of Birmingham, und ebenfalls Autor der europäischen Leitlinien, sieht jetzt sowohl die Ärzte als auch die Patienten in der Pflicht: "Viele Menschen könnten ihren Bluthochdruck senken, indem sie sich mehr bewegen, gesund essen, nicht rauchen, regelmäßig schlafen und wenig Alkohol trinken", sagt Kirchhof. "Ein solches Gespräch müssen Arzt und Patient führen, Medikamente sind nicht immer der richtige Weg." Im individuellen Fall müsse immer abwogen werden, ob das Herz-Kreislauf-Risiko größer sei oder die möglichen Nebenwirkungen einer medikamentösen Therapie.

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.

NHS finance chiefs warn of poorer care and longer waiting times | Society | The Guardian
NHS finance managers warn today that patients are set to experience poorer care, longer waiting times for treatment and greater rationing.

A grim outlook for the NHS’s finances is also likely to see many hospitals fail to make savings that ministers have said are vital and put plans for the service to reform how it operates in serious doubt.

Exercise 'not key to obesity fight', say scientists - BBC News
[ Food Politics of "a balanced diet and everything in moderation ] Exercise does little to tackle obesity, according to a group of doctors and sports scientists. Writing in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, three international experts say it is time to ''bust the myth'' that people can eat what they want as long as they are active. They accuse the food industry of misleading the public, and sabotaging public health campaigns. //&! Britons in denial about obesity, new research finds - bbc.in/1RPPqpJ - New research suggests that despite high levels of obesity, four out of five of people in the UK consider themselves to be healthy.

NHS mental health funding falls in England - FoI figures - BBC News
[ minority of patients. Can't do that with cancer treatment! Public sentiment would rip you apart. ] Figures obtained through a Freedom of Information request showed the budgets for mental health trusts fell by 2% from 2013/14 to 2014/15. This compares to a rise of 2.6% in hospital trusts' operating budgets, according to analysis by the Health Foundation think-tank. The Department of Health said mental health care funding overall was rising. In the year to April 2016 the budget for mental health trusts was projected to rise just 0.3%. Of the 53 out of 59 mental health trusts in England which responded to the FOI request, 29 said their budget would be lower this year than last. [...] funding is not keeping pace - and many are facing cuts. [...] In Scotland, mental health spending was up just 0.1% last year, and down a projected 0.4% this year.

South Somerset deploys ‘health coaches’ to take pressure off NHS - FT.com
Chronic conditions make a big share of cost // Underpinning the approach is a careful “segmenting” of patients to discover which are making maximum demands on the system. [...] In South Somerset, it was discovered that just 4 per cent of local people were between them consuming up to 50 per cent of the health and social care budget. High quality global journalism requires investment. Early results among a sample group of 100 patients are striking. Emergency admissions have fallen by 42 per cent, accident and emergency department visits by 4 per cent and outpatient appointments by 15 per cent, year on year, since the establishment of a “hub”, bringing together doctors, nurses and care workers to span the historically iron divide between GP surgery, community and hospital services. [...] “health coaches”. Cheaper than clinicians, and bringing a different skill set, they are seen as key to ensuring patients take responsibility for their own health [...] [mismatch of resources & demand]

Krebs: So lässt sich das Risiko verringern - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Vor Krebs fürchten sich die Deutschen wie vor keiner anderen Krankheit. Mit dem richtigen Lebensstil lässt sich das Erkrankungsrisiko deutlich verringern - leider aber ohne Garantie. Rocklegende David Bowie, Motörhead-Sänger Lemmy Kilmister oder "Harry-Potter"-Star Alan Rickman: Sie alle sind kürzlich an Krebs gestorben. 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.

UK cancer death rates after diagnosis drop 10% in ten years | Society | The Guardian
A greater number of people, however, are being diagnosed with and dying from cancer due to age and lifestyle factors [...] But the growing numbers of people being diagnosed with cancer as the population ages and obesity, a sedentary lifestyle, smoking and drinking take their toll, has climbed, which means the actual number of deaths each year has risen over the last decade. Some cancers continue to pose a major problem: the death rates from liver and pancreatic cancer are rising, not falling. [...] regional variations are sometimes shocking. In some areas, people diagnosed with lung cancer are four times more likely to die than in others. That is partly because in some less affluent places, lung cancer caused by smoking is more common and people have more advanced disease when they finally see the GP. But there are also variations in standards of care. [...] [ look at ] Five-year cancer survival rates, % [ if you survive, you are lucky for 5 years. ]

The Sheffield Hallam University team, backed by Cancer Research UK, have a hunch that physical activity can help the body stop tumours from spreading. They are asking 50 men with prostate cancer that has not yet spread to put the theory to the test for 12 months. They hope to show that aerobic exercise is a treatment in its own right and should be offered on the NHS. Half of the men will have weekly supervised exercise sessions, while the other 25 will only be given information about the benefits of exercise for cancer patients.

The NHS in Scotland will face "significantly more pressure" in the coming year despite a budget increase, the doctors' leaders have warned. The British Medical Association claimed that "constrained resources" meant the health service was struggling to cope with increasing demands. BMA Scotland chairman Peter Bennie also said the number of jobs lying vacant could have a "detrimental impact". The Scottish government said it had a "clear vision for the future". [...] "The funding gap faced by the NHS set against rising demand and the impact of increasing consultant, specialty doctor and GP vacancies and unfilled trainee posts cannot be ignored, and we must establish ways to make Scotland's NHS a more attractive place to work.

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 ....

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.

Audit Scotland says NHS needs 'fundamental change' - BBC News
[ REPORT DOES NOT MENTION PREVENTION AS MEASURE! ] Fundamental change is needed now if the NHS in Scotland is to cope with demand, according to the financial watchdog Audit Scotland. [...] The report also says that the health budget as a whole has decreased slightly since 2008/9 by 0.7% once inflation and capital spending is taken into account. Health boards - which are responsible for most frontline services - received a slight increase of 1%, but not enough to keep pace with cost pressures. The cost of drugs alone rose by 4% and is expected to rise by 5-16% in future. [...] Dr Peter Bennie, chairman of the British Medical Association Scotland, said: "The overriding message that must get through from this report is that substantive and realistic action is needed if our health service is to cope with the rapidly increasing pressures it is facing. //&! bbc.in/1PGQddr - the NHS adapting to changed demands. highlights areas where not much progress has been made towards the vision.

Cycling: three-quarters of Britons support more spending on bike use | Environment | The Guardian
[ where is the bike lobby here? its a bn dollar business. ] Biggest ever survey on subject says people would like government to spend almost seven times more on bike infrastructure than it does now. [...] Currently, about 1% to 2% of all trips in the UK are made by bike, as against figures of 25% or more in some nations, such as the Netherlands. Activists argue that more bike use would greatly help combat the ongoing health crisis caused by physical inactivity, as well as reducing vehicle pollution, among other benefits. “The message from the public couldn’t be clearer: there’s a desire to cycle more, but that a lack of safe places to ride bikes is off ­putting,” said Jason Torrance, policy director at Sustrans. [...] “Physical inactivity, congestion and declining air quality cost our economy billions. Governments must act to secure a greater share of current transport investment for cycling and walking.”

Mindfulness has huge health potential – but McMindfulness is no panacea | Jon Kabat-Zinn | Comment is free | The Guardian
[ you own only your thoughts, emotions and health (fitness) ] [ you have to function ] Mindfulness is often misunderstood – so let us be clear about what we are encouraging. In essence, mindfulness – being about attention, awareness, relationality, and caring – is a universal human capacity akin to our capacity for language acquisition. It is a way of being in wise and purposeful relationship with one’s experience, both inwardly and outwardly, with oneself and with others. Thus there is an intrinsic social dimension to its cultivation as well. It usually involves cultivating familiarity and intimacy with aspects of everyday experience that we often take for granted.

Part II: Is the Government fulfilling its role in the fight against cancer?
The scale of the challenge is apparent. I think we should be as bold and ambitious as possible: scientists, clinicians, patients, the general public and politicians all working together for a single goal: to eliminate cancer within a generation, and Britain at the forefront of this. [...] Patient experience has to be prioritised and this is difficult when NHS cancer services are under unprecedented pressure and the Government far too often provides contradictory messages. The Department of Health must provide the NHS with the resources and the long-term, holistic stability to allow Trusts to invest in state-of-the-art equipment. The NHS needs to emphasise prevention and early detection too, but the risk is that under greater financial and workforce pressure, cancer services will be forced to firefight.

Stehen oder sitzen im Büro: Beides ist gleich gefährlich - SPIEGEL ONLINE
[ all were sedentary I guess ] Bis zum 31. Juli 2014 waren 450 Mitglieder der Gruppe gestorben. Konkret entdeckten die Forscher keinen Zusammenhang zwischen den Sitzgewohnheiten und dem Sterberisiko der Studienteilnehmer. Das führen sie auf eine Besonderheit der Studiengruppe zurück: Mit im Schnitt 43 Minuten am Tag seien die Probanden insgesamt mehr als doppelt so lang zu Fuß unterwegs gewesen wie der Durchschnittsbrite, schreiben sie im "International Journal of Epidemiology". Demnach könnte Bewegung doch einen Schutz vor den gesundheitlichen Folgen von ständigem langen Sitzen bieten. Andersherum formuliert: "Jede ruhende Position, in der der Energieverbrauch gering ist, könnte schädlich für die Gesundheit sein, sei es Sitzen oder Stehen", sagt Hillsdon.

More patients in Scotland given antidepressants - BBC News
814,181 patients in 2014/15. Since 2009/10, use of antidepressants has increased by 28.5%. Two-thirds of the patients given the drugs were women, with use peaking in the 50-54 age group. The figures indicated antidepressant use was associated with deprivation. They recorded 225,969 patients in the poorest parts of Scotland receiving the drugs, compared with 110,507 in the least deprived areas. The total cost of antidepressants to the NHS in Scotland was £40.8m. The use of lower-cost drugs means this figure has fallen by one-third over the past 10 years. [...] "We are now looking at the flabbergasting statistic of more than one in seven people in Scotland being prescribed antidepressants this year.

Why are London cyclists so white, male and middle-class? | UK news | The Guardian
[ road safety, road cycling lessons, reform of laws putting cyclist on equal status as road user, campaign against road rage, better weather?, ] A fascinating study of why some Londoners cycle and others don’t illuminates cultural obstacles Boris Johnson’s cycling plans must overcome [...] One of its main findings concerns the congruence between being someone who cycles and an entire social identity bound up with class, ethnicity, values and aspirations. In other words, London cyclists were seen as being a certain sort of person: “Somebody who’s quite environmentally friendly, probably quite independent, maybe a bit of a leftie, vegetarian,” observed a woman called Michelle. Another participant, Julia, a cycling young professional, was very candid about these cultural associations and embraced them. “I mean, to be fair, it does make me feel smug, my friends joke that it’s very middle-class and they joke that it sort of fits with the lifestyle of gardening, listening to Radio 4, ...

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.

Damage corrected. Comparing the DNA of nearly 70,000 women allowed the researchers to identify the differences between those starting the menopause early and late. The team at Exeter and Cambridge universities showed that at least two repair mechanisms were involved. The first is used when the eggs are being formed and the woman's DNA is being broken, rearranged and repaired.

Study gives strongest link yet between blood pressure and diabetes | Society | The Guardian
People who have high blood pressure are almost 60% more likely to develop diabetes, according to research on 4.1 million people. The Oxford University study provides the strongest evidence yet of a link between the two conditions. Experts behind the study said more research was needed to see whether using drugs to lower blood pressure would help prevent people developing type 2 diabetes. [ ... stupid, high blood pressure is first thing body gives up (pre-cursor, first thing that gives, arterial function because shit gets clogged up via oil and animal protein, animal products)), next pancreas, are ppl w high blood pressure pre-diabetic and or have already signs of insulin resistance?! again example of looking not at the patient but the symptom/one detail by its own ... ] High blood pressure was linked with new cases of diabetes in a wide range of individuals, including men and women, people of varying ages, as well as those who were normal weight (TOFI!!!), overweight and obese.

Lebenserwartung-Studie: Menschen leben länger - jedoch für hohen Preis - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Eine aktuelle Studie zeigt, wie unterschiedlich die Lebenserwartung weltweit verteilt ist - und wie viel Zeit wir mit Krankheiten leben. [...] Laut der Global Burden of Disease Study 2013 werden die Menschen immer älter. In den 23 Jahren zwischen 1990 und 2013 ist die weltweite Lebenserwartung um 6,2 Jahre gestiegen. Gleichzeitig zeigen die Ergebnisse aber, dass die gewonnenen Jahre häufig mit einem hohen Preis bezahlt werden: Sie gehen zu Lasten der eigenen Gesundheit. [...] 1. Länger leben, länger krank: [...] Hierzulande haben Menschen, die 2013 geboren wurden, laut den Daten eine Lebenserwartung von 80,7 Jahren. Gesund sind sie davon aber lediglich 68,8 Jahre. [...] Ursache für die ungesunden zusätzlichen Lebensjahre sind oft nicht Krankheiten von Herz und Kreislauf oder Krebs, schreiben die Forscher. Stattdessen listen sie Leiden wie Diabetes, Muskel- und Skeletterkrankungen, mentale Krankheiten, Suchtprobleme, neurologische Erkrankungen sowie Hör- und Sehverlust auf.

Diabetes uses 10% of NHS drugs bill - BBC News
Diabetes now accounts for 10% of the NHS drugs bill in England, according to official figures. The Health and Social Care Information Centre report shows £869m was spent on drugs for the disease last year. It marks a sharp rise from the £514m being spent on the drugs a decade ago, when they accounted for just 6.6% of the prescriptions budget. The figures include drugs for both type-1 and type-2 diabetes, which affect 2.8 million people in England. It includes insulin, metformin and other anti-diabetic drugs. // &!

Obesity is an incurable disease. So why is the government intent on punishing sufferers? | George Monbiot | Comment is free | The Guardian
Fat-shaming is worse than useless. David Cameron points his finger at the afflicted, but food manufacturers and advertisers are the real culprits. s overeating more addictive than crack cocaine? It’s hard to compare addiction rates, or to produce a clear definition that holds true across all substances and behaviours. But consider this crude contrast: of people who use crack cocaine, 10%-20% become addicted to it; across a nine-year study of 176,000 obese people, 98.3% of the men and 97.8% of the women failed to return to a healthy weight. Once extreme overeating begins, it appears to be almost impossible to stop. [...] seek out a range of highly palatable, energy-dense foods, of the kind with which we are now surrounded.

Obesity: 'Slim chance' of return to normal weight - BBC News
[ its the environment & addiction component, stupid ] For severe obesity, shedding excess weight in a year is even more unlikely, a study of UK health records concluded. [...] [S]trategies for helping obese patients are failing. A team from King's College London is calling for "wider-reaching public health policies" to prevent people becoming obese in the first place. Lead researcher Dr Alison Fildes said the main treatment options offered to obese people in the UK - weight management programmes via their GP - were not working for the vast majority. "Treatment needs to focus on stopping people gaining more weight and maintaining even small levels of weight loss," she said. "Current strategies that focus on cutting calories and boosting physical activity aren't working for most patients to achieve weight loss and maintain that. "The greatest opportunity for fighting the obesity epidemic might be in public health policies to prevent it in the first place at a population level."

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.

Heart disease plus diabetes can knock more than a decade off your life | Society | The Guardian
“An individual in their 60s who has both conditions [diabetes and heart disease] has an average reduction in life expectancy of about 15 years.” Men of 60 with any two of the cardiometabolic conditions studied lost 12 years of life on average. The lifespan of those with all three conditions was reduced by 14 years. For women aged 60, the corresponding estimates were 13 years and 16 years of reduced life expectancy. The effects were even more dramatic at younger ages. Men of 40 with all three conditions could expect to have their life cut short by 23 years and women by 20 years. // - Old before your time.

Eine OECD-Studie warnt aber, dass der Anstieg von Fettleibigkeit und Diabetes diese positive Entwicklung stoppen könnte. // SICK POPULATION: Thanks to advances in modern medicine, we are living longer lives, but we’re doing it by lengthening the morbidity phase. In other words, we live longer, but sicker, lives. So, traditional medicine increases the number of old people in bad health. Ideally, though, we’d extend lifespan by slowing aging to delay the onset of deterioration, rather than extending the period of deterioration. - http://nutritionfacts.org/2015/06/11/exploiting-autophagy-to-live-longer/ &! http://nutritionfacts.org/2015/06/16/living-longer-by-reducing-leucine-intake/

A red meat-derived glycan promotes inflammation and cancer progression
(( http://nutritionfacts.org/?s=Neu5Gc )) A well known, epidemiologically reproducible risk factor for human carcinomas is the long-term consumption of “red meat” of mammalian origin. [...] Taken together, our data provide an unusual mechanistic explanation for the epidemiological association between red meat consumption and carcinoma risk. This mechanism might also contribute to other chronic inflammatory processes epidemiologically associated with red meat consumption. /// Similar mechanisms may contribute to the association of red meat consumption with other diseases, such as atherosclerosis and type 2 diabetes, which are also exacerbated by inflammation.

Sozialversicherung macht Milliardendefizit - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Bei den gesetzlichen Krankenversicherungen erhöhte sich hingegen das Defizit von 1,0 auf 3,9 Milliarden Euro. Gründe seien "vor allem Prämienzahlungen der gesetzlichen Krankenkassen, freiwillige Leistungen sowie steigende Arzneimittelausgaben", aber auch ein geringerer Zuschuss des Bundes an den Gesundheitsfonds.
