The UK is a nation of coffee lovers. Whether it’s soluble, capsules or roast and ground, coffee is often the first drink of the day for millions of Brits every morning. Now, approximately 30 billion cups of coffee are consumed in the UK each year, 70% of which was bought at retail and consumed at home. And with in-home worth £1.6bn, growing +9.8% YTD and bought by 87% of UK households, coffee still has great potential to stimulate retail sales.Find out more about the coffee category in Nescafe’s annual Factfile.Download the full white paper here.Company: NescafeFormat: PDFLength: 4 pagesType: White Paperlast_img read more

Just how safe is RU 486?

first_imgABC 24 Sept 2013These are the bare bones of the long coming of “medical” abortion to Australia. The history behind these recent developments is far more complicated – and far from finished.Together with colleagues, Professor Janice Raymond and Dr Lynette Dumble, I have been researching the RU 486 abortion story since 1988, when what was then called “the French abortion pill” made its debut on the world-stage. As long-term women’s health researchers and supporters of safe abortion, we watched in astonishment as many international women’s health groups uncritically greeted the arrival of this chemical abortifacient. We wondered why the progesterone antagonist RU 486, a largely untested chemical, was hailed as a new “miracle drug” and the “moral right of women.”The result of our three-year investigation was the book RU 486: Misconceptions, Myths and Morals, published in 1991. We concluded that the “safe-and-effective” mantra that RU 486/PG abortion had acquired was misleading: the adverse effects of the two drugs were unpredictable and dangerous and the research undertaken inadequate. The new “demonising” of suction abortion as “surgical” abortion (conjuring up knives and requiring a general anaesthetic, both wrong) was worrying. We said that the drawn-out and painful process of chemical abortion (our preferred term; but I also use pill abortion or “medical” abortion) was emotionally and physically hard on the women. The abortion process lasts a minimum of three days – when all goes well – but women can bleed up to 6 weeks. Moreover, between 5 and 8% of women need a second abortion when the drugs fail to completely terminate their pregnancy and remaining products of conception need to be removed to prevent an infection. This is a very draining and unpredictable time for women, especially so when compared to the 15-30 minutes a suction abortion takes in the relative safety of a clinical setting. In particular, we worried that because the second drug, the prostaglandin, is taken outside a clinic, the woman’s life would be at risk if she was haemorrhaging excessively and needed a blood transfusion but was away from an emergency clinic.We concluded that the RU 486/PG abortion had the making of a new wave of DIY backyard abortions which burdened women who had decided they needed an abortion with unnecessary days of agony: haemorrhaging, vomiting, cramping and the well-founded fear of sepsis. We predicted deaths and also wondered why pro-choice activists could not see that this abortion method only benefited pharmaceutical companies and doctors. For the latter, it is much easier to prescribe pills than actually perform an abortion: only die-hard abortionists “like” to do them, while most other doctors perform them out of a sense of duty. We warned that the push for RU 486/PG – especially when it is cheap – could be particularly dangerous for poor and/or Indigenous women.… To update the events of the past years, in July 2013, we re-issued RU 486: Misconceptions, Myths and Morals, for which I have written an extensive 100-page preface. In my new “Preface” I ask “what is a safe and effective abortion?” and include information on birth defects both drugs can cause, contraindications that are vital for women to observe (such as asthma, epilepsy, kidney and liver disease), and the total lack of any research into long-term health risks (like a woman’s fertility). I include women’s stories of extraordinarily drawn out, scary and painful pill abortions, I mention the 15 FDA-documented deaths of women by 2011… “Regardless of one’s views on abortion, pushing this drug combo as simple is disrespectful of a woman’s right to know what she might face.” Correct.http://www.abc.net.au/religion/articles/2013/09/24/3855497.htmlast_img read more

Possession of small amounts of cannabis should remain a criminal offence

first_imgResearch NZ November 2013The poll questions:The two questions were as follows:Currently, possession of even a small amount of cannabis is against the law. If cannabis possession was decriminalised, people caught with a small amount of cannabis would not receive a criminal conviction. Do you support decriminalisation of the possession of a small amount of cannabis, or do you feel the law should stay as it is?Currently, young people in possession of cannabis at school may be suspended or expelled. Do you agree or disagree that it would be better to provide them with health education and support?  Key results:The key results for the first question are as follows:One-third of respondents (33 percent) were in favour of decriminalisation of the possession of small amounts of cannabis; 58 percent were not in favour and nine percent did not know.There were few differences by the sub-groups of respondents; meaning that this result was the common view regardless of the demographic characteristics of respondents.The key results for the second question were as follows:In total, 74 percent of respondents agreed or strongly agreed that it would be better if young people in possession of small amounts of cannabis at school were offered health education and support, rather than be suspended or expelled. Some 39 percent strongly agreed and 35 percent agreed with this suggestion.In comparison, 15 percent disagreed or strongly disagreed with this suggestion (8 percent disagreed and 7 percent strongly disagreed).“From these results it is clear that a majority of New Zealanders feel that possession of small amounts of cannabis should remain a criminal offence, but as far as the possession of small amounts by young people at school are concerned, the preferred course of action is to give them health education and support rather than punishment”, said Research New Zealand Director, Emanuel Kalafatelis.http://www.researchnz.com/pdf/Media%20Releases/RNZ%20Media%20Release%20-%20Cannabis.pdflast_img read more
