Welsh patients in mass exodus to England, paralysed man walks again and lifestyle key to heart disease

The Daily Mail splashes on the Welsh NHS, from which it says the number of cancer ‘refugees’ seeking treatment across the border in England has ‘quadrupled’.

Over on The Independent there is better news, as a ‘paralysed man walks again’, with the help of spine-reconstructing surgery. According to the paper, British researchers are on the brink of finding a cure for paralysis, offering hope to millions.

Lastly, The Telegraph informs us that the key to heart disease is lifestyle. Mass research has indicated obesity and smoking are stronger risk factors than genes.
