According to this Telegraph article, Sweden used to pride itself on giving a warm welcome to outsiders – but as the refugee crisis grows, so too does its sense of injustice.

Like most of Europe, Sweden has reacted to the migration/refugee crises but is missing a fundamental strategy. Now immigration is questioning the values in Sweden’s liberal democracy.

The article contrasts Sweden to the UK, and supports David Cameron‘s policy priorities.

The point is that both Sweden and the UK have changed fundamentally because of immigration policies. It’s time for European countries to develop and effective strategy.

Safer to be short? Tall people more likely to develop cancer, study claims — RT News

Acording to Russia’s news ageny RT, although being tall certainly has its advantages, a new Swedish research study says those who are vertically blessed are actually more likely to develop cancer. It stresses that tall women are particularly affected, according to the research.

RT cites study leader Emelie Benyi, a PhD student at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm who explains possible reasons for the link:

“One hypothesis could be that taller individuals are exposed to higher levels of growth factors during childhood and adolescence which could possibly promote cancer development,” she said, as quoted by The Telegraph.

Another hypothesis could be that taller people simply have a larger number of cells in their bodies that then could potentially transform into cancer.

A third possible explanation is that taller individuals have a higher caloric intake, which has also previously been linked to cancer.”

Of course, this is all about relative probability. Neverless, it would make sense for tall women to be aware and perhaps routinely test for cancer.
