Is scurvy making a comeback? - BBC News
Scurvy is on the rise in England, [...] In the year up to April 2014, it was the primary diagnosis behind 16 hospital admissions and the primary or secondary cause of 94 admissions. Between 2009 and 2014, admissions related to scurvy went up by 27%. That's in line with percentage increases in hospital admissions for malnutrition and gout - a common Victorian complaint traditionally associated with too much port and an unhealthy lifestyle - over the same period. The most recent research, conducted in 2014, suggests that gout currently affects one in 40 people in the UK. [...] What does this say about the nation's diet? [...] While the increasing prevalence of gout in the UK is a concern, experts put it down to an ageing population and a growing obesity problem. // &! bbc.in/1ZP1bDL - Child Protection failed.

Bill Clinton recently gave up his 4 year vegan diet to begin an animal protein-powered low-carb paleo diet! Dr. Mark Hyman, his new doctor, says a vegan diet is deficient in high quality protein while also making people fat since a vegan diet lacks animal fat, which is supposedly slimming.

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. // &!

A Liverpool health experiment which just might save the NHS - BBC News
[ a bomb oozing, not exploding, just getting bigger & bigger & each passing year not tackling the causes - harder to resolve. ] True to form, the wise men at the top of the NHS in their headquarters in Leeds and Liverpool have identified the source of their pain: it's us. We are victims of our own lifestyle choices, demographically ever more numerous, and culturally driven by untameable expectations. We drink too much, we are too fat, we smoke, and we do not exercise and the average age of the population is increasing. The pressure is intolerable. A morning at A&E or a GP's surgery is like a scene from The Day of the Triffids. No power on earth could save us from ourselves and we are lucky to live as long as we do. [...] Unless we change the way we do things, the NHS in England will die. [...] [ FOCUS HAS TO CHANGE - from treatment to prevention and education. ] "The NHS can't cope: no health service would cope - anywhere." // intrinsic motivation by ppl to change for the better.

Fructose changes brain to cause overeating, scientists say - CBS News
Fructose, a common sugar found in the U.S. diet, may cause changes in the brain that trigger a person to overeat, a new brain imaging study shows.

After drinking a fructose beverage, the brain doesn't register the same feeling of being full as it does when simple glucose is consumed, scientists found.

All sugars are not equal -- even though they contain the same amount of calories -- because they are metabolized differently in the body. Table sugar is sucrose, which consists of half fructose, half glucose. High-fructose corn syrup is 55 percent fructose and 45 percent glucose. Some nutrition experts say this sweetener may pose special risks, but others and the industry reject that claim. And doctors say we eat too much sugar in all forms.

Stop Subsidizing Obesity - NYTimes.com
[A] plea to tweak SNAP regulations (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Benefits, the program formerly and more familiarly known as Food Stamps) so that the program concerns itself with the quality of calories instead of just their quantity.

“It’s shocking,” says Ludwig, “how little we consider food quality in the management of chronic diseases. And in the case of SNAP that failure costs taxpayers twice: We pay once when low-income families buy junk foods and sugary beverages with SNAP benefits, and we pay a second time when poor diet quality inevitably increases the costs of health care in general, and Medicaid and Medicare in particular.”

[...]

Seven percent of our calories come from sugar-sweetened beverages, none of them doing any of us any good.

The Optimal Diet - NYTimes.com
Dr. Dean Ornish op ed in the New York Times warns about dangers of low carb diets (http://nyti.ms/Pdkpei). I wrote a whole book about it, now online free at:

Perhaps the biggest misconception is that as long as you lose weight, it doesn’t matter what you eat. But it does. Yet being thin and being healthy are not at all the same thing. Being overweight is not necessarily linked with disease or premature death. What you eat affects which diseases you may develop, regardless of whether you’re thin or fat. Some diets that may help you lose weight may be harmful to your health over time.

Vegan Diet + Regular Exercise + Stress Management = risisng probability of Good Health into old age (dying of age, not bc of a disease).

WHAT you eat is as important as what you exclude.

High fat diet may increase women's risk of breast cancer later in life | Mail Online
... ‘Our findings highlight a striking link between diet, metabolic dysregulation, and.., MG (mammary gland) growth that is independent of oestrogenic stimulation.
'These results lend support to increasing evidence suggesting a relationship between breast cancer risk and early life events that clearly include dietary components and their effects on aspects of metabolic dysregulation.’

Alzheimer's could be the most catastrophic impact of junk food | George Monbiot | Comment is free | The Guardian
[Aftermath of a nation on Poor Diet is a] problem [that] belongs to all of us. Even if you can detach yourself from the suffering caused by diseases arising from bad diets, you will carry the cost, as a growing proportion of the health budget will be used to address them [, and everyone has to pay more to keep health budgets in balance]. The cost – measured in both human suffering and money – could be far greater than we imagined. A large body of evidence now suggests that Alzheimer's is primarily a metabolic disease. Some scientists have gone so far as to rename it: they call it type 3 diabetes.

Experiments conducted seem to support the link between diet and dementia, and researchers have begun to propose potential mechanisms. In common with all brain chemistry, these tend to be fantastically complex, involving, among other impacts, inflammation, stress caused by oxidation, the accumulation of one kind of brain protein and the transformation of another

Why Fathers Really Matter - NYTimes.com
Doctors have been telling men for years that smoking, drinking and recreational drugs can lower the quality of their sperm. What doctors should probably add is that the health of unborn children can be affected by what and how much men eat; the toxins they absorb; the traumas they endure; their poverty or powerlessness; and their age at the time of conception. In other words, what a man needs to know is that his life experience leaves biological traces on his children. Even more astonishingly, those children may pass those traces along to their children.

[...] Genes matter, and culture matters, and how fathers behave matters, too.

**A certain lifestyle and environment switches on/off certain genes and functions - point in time information - that gets carried on to the baby.**

[...] Our genes can be switched on or off by three environmental factors, among other things: what we ingest (food, drink, air, toxins); what we experience (stress, trauma); and how long we live.

Alzheimer-Medikament: Pharmakonzerne scheitern reihenweise an Alzheimer-Arzneien - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Bei der Suche nach einem Medikament gegen Alzheimer gibt es schon wieder einen Rückschlag: Innerhalb eines Monats musste der dritte Pharmakonzern in Folge einräumen, bei der Entwicklung einer Arznei gescheitert zu sein. Der Wirkstoff hatte sich in der Erprobung als weitgehend wirkungslos erwiesen.

Age related diseases like dementia and specifically alzheimers can be prevented. Not entirely, but to the case that symptoms appear not when one is in his 50s, but 80s. Healthy lifestyle is a choice about now and then - quality of life.

Sugar makes you stupid: Study shows high-fructose diet sabotages learning, memory
"Our findings illustrate that what you eat affects how you think," said Fernando Gomez-Pinilla, a professor of neurosurgery at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and a professor of integrative biology and physiology in the UCLA College of Letters and Science. "Eating a high-fructose diet over the long term alters your brain's ability to learn and remember information. But adding omega-3 fatty acids to your meals can help minimize the damage."

While earlier research has revealed how fructose harms the body through its role in diabetes, obesity and fatty liver, this study is the first to uncover how the sweetener influences the brain.

"We're concerned about high-fructose corn syrup that is added to manufactured food products as a sweetener and preservative."

Poverty and food: The nutrition puzzle | The Economist
The damage malnutrition does in the first 1,000 days of life is also irreversible. According to research published in The Lancet, a medical journal, malnourished children are less likely (all things being equal) to go to school, less likely to stay there, and more likely to struggle academically. They earn less than their better-fed peers over their lifetimes, marry poorer spouses and die earlier.

Paradoxically, malnutrition can also cause obesity later in life. In the womb and during the first couple of years, the body adjusts to a poor diet by squirrelling away whatever it can as fat (an energy reserve). It never loses its acquired metabolism. This explains the astronomical obesity rates in countries that have switched from poor to middle-income status. In Mexico, for instance, obesity was almost unknown in 1980. Now 30% of Mexican adults are clinically obese and 70% are overweight. These are among the highest rates in the world, almost as bad as in America. ...
