Read this op-ed, written by danish journalist, Iben Thranholm, published in Russia’s RT. She explores the question, ‘What do Macron, May, and Merkel have in common, apart from their neatly alliterative names and being leaders of Europe’s largest nations’? She responds that they have no children but they are by no means exceptional in this respect with many European political leaders being childless.

Macron, May & Merkel: Will Europe’s childless leaders halt demographic decline? — Iben Thranholm – RT Op-Edge

The article blames the growing influence of feminism and that European politicians have not promoted the importance of traditional family life. Ominously, she warns:

Against this barren and infertile Western culture stands Islamic culture, which places emphasis on family and having many children. Muslim women take pride in saving their virginity until marriage in which they foster many children. Turkish President Recep Erdogan recently called for all Turks residing in Europe to have five children each. This will make the future of Europe yours, he declared.

The conclusion is chilling:

The infertility of European leaders is now reflected in self-destructive policies, globalism and mass immigration, instead of policies that promote children and families. Taxes and economic policy have been deliberately shaped to make it virtually impossible for any European household to manage on one income.

Perhaps, the politics of immigration needs to be broadened to include promotion of children and families?

Opinion – Cancer rates have reached a record high | Daily Mail Online – John Gelmini

Dr Alf is right and the Daily Mail is wrong because UK longevity is the worst in Western Europe other than Greece and cancer survival rates and the incidence of cancers are worse in the UK than anywhere else in Europe. Dementia is now the leading cause of death in the UK followed by cancer and then heart disease.

Cancers kill more people in the UK than is the case in other European countries because of our poor diet, use of intensive farming methods, pollution ,excessive alcohol use at practically double the global level according to the latest WHO report. Carcinogens are present in mechanically recovered meat in plastics, food additives, in our air and in our water.

Also as people go on more long haul holidays to places where their often pale skin is not used to strong sunlight so moles develop and become malignant.

The legacy of smoking, vaping and a failure to engage vitamin supplementation to offset a vitamin deficient diet plays a part as does the divorce and separation rate which causes stress and is higher in the UK than anywhere else in Europe.

The NHS does not use the latest cancer treatments, like the Rife machine and the German system of cooking cancer cells to death.

It is time to Napalm the NHS and start again with a best practice public health-care system.
