Health news round-up

Tonight on Bodytalk Jules Bottazzi presented a round-up of the week's health news, including:

 

The latest on seasonal flu and why this week will see the number of cases shoot up as kids go back to school;

Interesting ideas to stop binge drinking;

Why 3,400 people have complained to the BBC about the EastEnders cot death storyline;

Will working with your hands make you happier?

The risks of relying on the internet for self-diagnosis.

 

Next week we'll be welcoming Professor Kuntal Chakravarty, consultant rheumatologist, speaking about Raynaud’s syndrome and scleroderma. Raynaud's phenomenon is a disorder causing discoloration of the fingers, toes, and occasionally other areas as a result of decreased blood supply. This condition can also cause nails to become brittle with longitudinal ridges. Emotional stress and cold are classic triggers of the phenomenon. Scleroderma is a related condition where there is symmetrical skin thickening.
