Read this Telegraph article. It’s excellent news for fat people. But surely they should pay for it themselves?

There needs to be a debate about what medicine should be included free of charge. Ed Balls believes that the Tories want to start charging for certain drugs. 

For me, health charging is a good thing and would ensure that public healthcare would be focused where most needed. Obviously, there would be low income exclusions.

This is a MUST READ article from the BBC, citing latest WHO evidence. Check it out!

via BBC News – Cancer ‘tidal wave’ on horizon, warns WHO.

The WHO’s World Cancer Report 2014 said the major sources of preventable cancer included:

  • Smoking
  • Infections
  • Alcohol
  • Obesity and inactivity
  • Radiation, both from the sun and medical scans
  • Air pollution and other environmental factors
  • Delayed parenthood, having fewer children and not breastfeeding

It seems that the growth in cancer globally will be most significant in the developing World.

Surely, it’s time to control the global brands that are promoting unhealthy food that is contributing directly to global obesity?
