A Picture of Health

Some recent CNE Health blog entries:

Make a Clean Breast of It. On the recent HFEA decision to allow PGD for BRCA1/2 cancer, another step towards UK bioliberalism. Of course, the House of Lords decision against a right-to-die bill shows that all is not rosy.

Evidence Based Health Policy Against Fads. Inspired by a fun paper modelling management fads.

Publish or Perish, on the publication of survival rates of heart surgery for different hospitals and doctors.

Profiting from the War on Cancer , on how much society would profit from reductions in cancer. A lot, of course. In general the value of better health is enormous, but we are not very good at figuring out how to get it.
