The Health Delusion


Category: Books
Description: Winner of Tony Thistlethwaite Award for best consumer health book by the Medical Journalist's Association. How can it be that even with all the advances modern healthcare has made, we're experiencing record levels of ill health - from diabetes, heart disease and cancer, to osteoporosis, dementia and depression? We're more health conscious than ever before, and no matter which way we turn we're bombarded with promises of the best thing for living longer and healthier lives. But the truth is, the messages are flawed and if we follow them, we won't achieve the good health we long for. Something, somewhere, has gone horribly wrong. At last, cutting through the misinformation, The Health Delusion has the answers, all backed by hard science. It exposes the shocking truths behind our diet, health and pharmaceutical industries - and how they consistently put our health in jeopardy in favour of boosting their profits, as well as showing how the media makes things even worse by misleading us at every turn. So how can we put things right? Providing a complete 21st-century guide to optimal health at every stage of life, The Health Delusion gives us the real story, and offers us a detailed plan of the foods, supplements and lifestyle changes needed for total wellness.

The Plot Against The Nhs


Category: Books
Description: Revealing the British coalition government's plans, this examination demonstrates how a small policy community inside and outside the department of health have schemed for 10 years to replace the National Health Service ( NHS) with a U. S.-style health care market without informing parliament or the public. While ex-ministers, officials, and the like profit from lucrative positions in private health companies, the population must cope with the increasing health care costs and the diminishing quality of care. With accounts from NHS patients and doctors, the key strategies of implementation are uncovered and the companies involved--their lobby, their businesses, their fortunes, and, in some cases, their crimes--exposed.

Magnify The Health Of The Nation
The Health Of The Nation

The Health Of The Nation


Category: Books
Description: The National Health Service is the most enduring of the institutions created by the first real Labour Government (1945-51). Before the NHS was created, treatment of ill health was provided by doctors in their surgeries and in hospitals, all of which had to be paid for by the patients. Many poorer families paid their GP's a monthly sum as they were usually in arrears with the fees. The Labour Government's vision was for a health service free for everybody and this was launched in 1948, with Aneurin Bevan as first Minister for Health. Now after nearly seventy years, with the costs of the NHS running at some GBP120 billions annually, and threatened by the 2012 Health and Social Care Act, the NHS is in danger of being classed as any other utility, gas, water, electricity and is imminent danger of marketization and commercialisation. In his book The Health of the Nation, David Owen has explained the consequences of the 2012 Act and the damage to the NHS that will result. Those most affected will be those who can least afford good health care. This book presents a powerful case for the repeal of the 2012 Act and for the restoration of the NHS to its traditional values.
