Two recent studies have stated that physical training, whether it pays or not, will definitely pay off in long term when it comes to living stronger, longer and better.
It has been confirmed by both the studies that the healthiest athletes in the world are the best of all. This is mainly because of the training that they face. It has also been seen that there is a survival advantage that fitness actually translates into.
Wales is relying too much on residential care for people who are aged, and an Assembly committee has called for Wales to reduce this.
According to the health and social care committee's report into this, Wales seriously needs to look into the way it takes care of the old people and also bring down the way it relies on simply putting people in care homes.
AMs argued that more clarity is needed when it comes to care options and inspection reports for care homes more easy to understand.
Internet is all about showing a video that appears to show rude images and cheeky messages hidden in Brighton's Christmas lights.
Satirical site The Poke is behind putting these pictures and the title given is `There's a problem with Brighton's Christmas lights.'
It is being expected that a frustrated electrician is behind doing this act of installing the lights in Churchill Square and Western Road.
It is also being thought that special effects have been used to give people that extra cheer on Christmas.
Two leading dailies have written different statements for the same thing, one states that `Fine and ban care home abuse bosses,' and the other states `There must be a complete culture change in treatment' when it comes to care centres.
A report was filed by the Department of Health that was about staff mistreatment and abuse of patients at the private Winterbourne View Hospital. It was in May last year when these events were seen.
Assessment, treatment and rehabilitation for people who have autism and learning difficulties were to be given at the 24-bed hospital.
A new technique in which immature brain cells can be made from human urine has been advised by Chinese researchers. These immature cells can then become multiple types of functioning neurons and glial cells.
Cellular mechanisms of neurodegenerative conditions like Parkinson's and Alzheimer's can be studied with this technique and it can also be helpful in putting to test the effects of new drugs that are being developed to treat them.
Treating these diseases is also possible with stem cells but the problem is how to obtain them from human embryos as it poses an ethical dilemma.
In 2013, contracts will have new rules that state the National Health Service will be forced to admit any safety failures and mistakes.
All NHS set-ups will be liable to inform patients about their safety if it has been compromised and will have to ensure that any mistakes lead to lessons being learnt. This will happen from April 2013 when all commissioning contracts will include a contractual duty of openness.
Presently though the NHS is expected to be open about all errors but no contracts bind it to do so. This simply means that the organizations are not accountable for failures.
Two studies have shown that there is a rise in the number of babies surviving after being born premature. There is also a rise seen in babies who are premature and manage to live for three years without any disability.
One of the research papers state that in 1995 the survival of the number of babies born between 22 and 25 weeks was 40 per cent and in 2006 it was 53 per cent.
Advances made in neonatal medicine was seen as there was a rise in the number of such newborns admitted to neonatal intensive care over the same period, which was 666 in 1995 and 1,115 in 2006.
A potentially lethal hand-held X-ray scanner that has been sold on eBay follows an urgent warning going out to dentists.
The warning stated that there can be risks of cancer and organs getting damaged with the Tianjie Dental Falcon machine as it could expose users and patients to 10 times the normal level of radiation.
The China-made device is being used by at least one UK dental surgery.
The NHS and private dentists have been asked to do away with the machine. The instructions have been given by the Medicines and Healthcare Regulatory Agency, MHRA.
According to a data, in hospitals, the 85 per cent mark is often crossed by the bed occupancy rates.
The government records also state that last month, around 94 per cent of hospital beds were occupied. This is nine per cent more than the 85 per cent limit that doctors regard as necessary to maintain safe, good quality care.
The Department of Health's data that states the above also contradicted the statistics, according to which, last month there were only a few beds left at various times.
