Dementia and other neurological brain diseases are striking people younger and younger, according to a new study conducted by researchers from Bournemouth University in England and published in the journal Surgical Neurology International. These diseases have reached levels that are “almost epidemic,” the researchers said, and they reached them so quickly that environmental factors must be largely to blame.
“The rate of increase in such a short time suggests a silent or even a ‘hidden’ epidemic, in which environmental factors must play a major part, not just ageing,” lead researcher Colin Pritchard said. “Modern living produces multi-interactional environmental pollution but the changes in human morbidity, including neurological disease is remarkable and points to environmental influences.”

Healthy eating fanatics who swear by ‘clean’ foods and quaff smoothies by the gallon could be the victims of a dangerous eating disorder which can lead to malnutrition and even death.
Individuals fixated with ‘naked’ or ‘raw’ ingredients and diets which ban processed or refined foodstuffs may be displaying symptoms of a purported condition called ‘orthorexia nervosa’.
Unlike anorexia, where sufferers restrict the quantity of the food they eat, sufferers of orthorexia, derived from the Greek word for ‘correct’, fixate on quality and strict internal rules.
But the rigid internal guidelines – which can even exclude entire food groups – can easily result in lethargy, weight loss and dangerous levels of malnutrition while sufferers labour under the misguided belief they are leading healthier lifestyles.
Food blogs promoting the latest fad diets and photo-sharing sites like Instagram – which has nearly 27,000,000 pictures labelled #eatclean, most of which depict supposedly healthy dishes or men and women showing off their sculpted physiques – are being blamed for condition’s rise.
The disorder was coined by Dr Steven Bratman in a 1997 paper, in which he said sufferers could be driven to despair by inadvertently ‘devouring a single raisin’ in violation of internal guidelines.
Conspiracy theorists have been saying it all along – but cannabis does apparently kill cancer cells.
That’s according to the US government, which has added a page on the use of cannabis and cannabinoids to their official cancer advice website.
The National Cancer Institute, part of the US Department of Health, now advises that ‘cannabinoids may be useful in treating the side effects of cancer and cancer treatment’ by smoking, eating it in baked products, drinking herbal teas or even spraying it under the tongue.
The site also lists other uses including: Anti-inflammatory activity, blocking cell growth, preventing the growth of blood vessels that supply tumours, antiviral activity and relieving muscle spasms caused by multiple sclerosis.
The information page also explains how cancer cells in mice were killed when exposed to cannabis.
British lawmakers get free VIP service at the National Health Service (NHS) hospital to protect them from public, UK media reports have revealed.
According to documents released under the Freedom of Information Act, UK MPs are given private cubicles and even single rooms in Accident and Emergency (A&E) admissions, rather than having to sit in a crowded ward where they could be confronted by members of the public.
Hospital managers at London’s St Thomas’ admitted there were special measurements in place for politicians because of their “enhanced security needs,” the Express reported.
The protocol dictates that any “recognizable” MP is treated away from the public and out of sight.
The report points to other patients’ fury at the hospital where this was revealed.
This is while another report by the British paper refers to the daily allowance of House of the Lords peers who have been disgraced over their past actions.

Police should not rule out investigating tip-offs from psychics, witches or clairvoyants to help find missing people, according to new guidelines.
A consultation document from the College of Policing, which is the official source of professional practice on police work, has said that information from mediums should not be dismissed.
The consultation, which runs until next month, is to help ensure that cases of missing people are investigated effectively and supported by relevant management structures.
A consultation document from the College of Policing, which is the official source of professional practice on police work has said officers should not dismiss tip offs from psychics
And in the detailed report it states: ‘High-profile missing person investigations nearly always attract the interest of psychics and others, such as witches and clairvoyants, stating that they possess extrasensory perception.’
‘Any information received from psychics should be evaluated in the context of the case, and should never become a distraction from the overall investigation and search strategy unless it can be verified.’
