Can't remember the last time I had a "full fat" soft drink - probably when cycling in France (coke is cycling fuel, fact). My kids only ever get diet soft drinks, and they get those rarely. But is this more nanny state?
The message for most of us is this: it doesn’t take much physical activity to start reaping its health benefits. “These findings may offer some hope—and even perhaps a dash of inspiration—to the estimated 30% of adults worldwide who struggle to achieve the recommended levels of physical activity,” Huxley writes.
Banning the handshake from the health care environment may require further study to confirm and better describe the link between handshake-related transmission of pathogens and disease. Moreover, given the profound social role of the handshake, a suitable replacement gesture may need to be adopted and then promoted with widespread media and educational programs. Nevertheless, removing the handshake from the health care setting may ultimately become recognized as an important way to protect the health of patients and caregivers, rather than as a personal insult to whoever refuses another’s hand. Given the tremendous social and economic burden of hospital-acquired infections and antimicrobial resistance, and the variable success of current approaches to hand hygiene in the health care environment, it would be a mistake to dismiss, out of hand, such a promising, intuitive, and affordable ban.

Electronic cigarettes (E-cigarettes) are devices that deliver nicotine to a user by heating and converting to an aerosol a liquid mixture typically composed of propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, flavoring chemicals, and nicotine. E-cigarette use doubled in just 1 year among both adults and children, from 3.4% to 6.2% in adults (2010–2011) and 3.3% to 6.8% in youth (2011–2012), with high levels of dual use with tobacco cigarettes. Although most youth using e-cigarettes are dual users, up to one third of adolescents who tried an e-cigarette have never smoked a conventional cigarette, indicating that some youth are initiating use of the addictive drug nicotine with e-cigarettes.
Smoke-free policies are a critical intervention both to protect nonsmokers and to support smoking cessation attempts. To avoid reversing the effectiveness of these policies, e-cigarettes should not be used anyplace where smoking cigarettes is not allowed (including in homes that are smoke-free). There is no reason to reintroduce toxins into clean indoor air environments.
