Monday's health links

  1. Well there you go - today is the most depressing day of the year.
  2.  National Butt Out Week. If you smoke, please use this as an opportunity to try to stop. If you don't, don't look like an idiot by starting.
  3. Researchers identify Alzheimer's and Down Syndrome gene. One more step towards finding a treatment.
  4. More steps taken to regulate use of tanning beds in Canada.
  5. The cost of treating cancer in the US.
  6. The health risks of being overweight.
  7. The side effects of some cancer treatment drugs.
  8. Leadership is the key to disease prevention, with a British Columbia focus. Hallelujah.
  9. Canadian advances in the treatment of brain cancer.
  10. The Canadian Paediatric Society is calling for a national vaccination strategy.
And a little medical humour from Mr. Bean (thanks for the reminder, Debby!).
