Trump slams Democratic 'obstruction' on health reform

Trump slams Democratic 'obstruction' on health reform
- Senate leaders last week unveiled a revamped health care plan aimed at fulfilling Trump’s pledge to repeal Obamacare, the landmark reform of his Democratic predecessor Barack Obama.
But the measure so far has failed to garner enough support to pass with only Republican votes — although the party has a majority in the Senate — after a handful of GOP lawmakers revolted.
“The health care bill would be so great if the Democrats and Republicans could get together, wrap their arms around it so that everybody is happy with it,” Trump complained on the “Fox and Friends” program, in a previously taped interview broadcast early today.

Getting A Grip On Diabetes

Getting A Grip On Diabetes
- Over the past 10-15 years, India’s disease burden has shifted from communicable to non-communicable diseases. According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), over 60 million people in India suffer from diabetes. Last year, The Lancet reported that the prevalence of diabetes has more than doubled for men in India (3.7 per cent to 9.1 per cent) and increased by 80 per cent among women in India (4.6 per cent to 8.3 per cent) ­between 1980 and 2014.
Experts say the number of diabetics in India is expected to touch 120 million over the next two decades. “Type 2 Diabetes is likely to lead to the biggest epidemic and public health issue in ­human history, posing a huge barrier to economic development,” says Dr Kenneth Thorpe, chairman, Partnership to Fight Chronic Disease (PFCD). The ­financial implications of this scenario are staggering: the current cost of treating diabetes and its complications in the world is estimated at $215-375 billion and this figure is slated to rise.
