Keep Yourself Healthy

Dr Aseem Malhotra is spot on with this article:
  • Most of us value our health but engage in behaviours that undermine it. It's all too easy to understand, tempted as we are by that extra pint at the pub or the brightly coloured chocolate bar at the checkout. But, viewed from inside the NHS, I think that as a nation we've also lost perspective about what healthcare and modern medicine can achieve. Don't worry if we let things slip, we think, we can always find a pill to fix things or secure a hospital makeover. (It's a belief, often encouraged, I have to admit, by a medical profession too ready to administer drugs.)
 His anti-sugar rhetoric is perhaps a bit too strong for my liking at times, but hell, he is putting in a good fight against the dessertification of our diets!
