A mountain of overflowing rubbish abandoned by fly-tippers has been branded a “health hazard” on a city housing estate. The dumpers have been leaving waste outside residents' homes while people sleep. But householders say they have been forced to live with the mess which is affecting their way of life. Complaints have been made about the constant eyesore to the council chiefs in Halifax, Yorkshire.

Drinking ‘diet’ cola or lemonade is as bad for you as full-sugar varieties, a major study suggests. Those who consumed sugar-sweetened or artificially sweetened drinks were more likely to die young, researchers found. They analysed data on 1.2 million adults from 14 studies, with some tracking participants for more than 20 years. During this time there were 137,310 deaths. The risk of dying increased with each additional 250ml of sweetened drink consumed a day – less than a standard 330ml can of pop. Consuming sugar-sweetened drinks was linked to a 5 per cent increased risk of dying from any cause and a 13 per cent higher risk of dying from heart disease.

India's coronavirus crisis is spreading outside major cities, with rural districts in at least 10 states recording a surge of cases and deaths in April. Rural districts recorded more COVID-related deaths than urban districts for the first time last month, despite urban areas having higher overall cases, according to the How India Lives" data repository. In 2020, the first wave of the pandemic in India was initially limited to densely populated cities. The ongoing second wave in 2021 is ravaging wide swathes of rural India, which is starved of public health resources. Shortages of available emergency services have also prompted some villagers to travel to cities, sometimes to other states, in a desperate attempt to find care. Bharti Sharma, a public health consultant, told DW that reports from the ground show a huge swath of the rural population will be at risk if health care deficits are not addressed "immediately." Which rural areas are suffering? India's federal … [Read more...] about COVID in rural India poses parallel health care crisis
