Our roundup of health news headlines on Tuesday 3 August.
Silly season has well and truly started – with cloned cow’s milk and Emma Thompson on women ‘having it all’ on the front pages.
But here at the Daily Digest we are going to concentrate on the (ahem) hard-hitting health news of the day, with Brazillian supermodel Gisele Bundchen launching a bid for breast feeding to be made compulsory for six months.
‘No’, we reply gazing at the accompanying picture of the lady herself in a bikini. ‘Wouldn’t dream of it.’
Next we have claims in the Independent this morning that the Government ignored its own scientific advisers over the ‘questionable nature’ of homeopathy by continuing to allow its use on the NHS. According to the newspaper, experts – including chief scientific adviser Sir John Beddington – warned against the continued funding of homeopathy in the health service.
After that, we shall go back to the mesmerizing Gisele and her very important breastfeeding campaign. *Sigh*
