AbstractIreland has a population of just over one million children, the highest birth rate in the European Union, significant income inequalities and an increasing non-national population. Our under five mortality figures have shown a steady decline to 3.6 per 1000 and are amongst the best in the world. Examples of high-quality healthcare results include neonatal intensive care outcomes, paediatric cancer survival rates, surgical outcomes in congenital heart disease, improved survival in cystic fibrosis and renal transplantation results. Positivity alone is not enough and I propose a 10-point plan for future healthcare for...

continues to be a national health problem, linked to a number of chronic medical conditions, such as diabetes and heart disease, and even to some types of cancer. The estimated annual health care costs of obesity-related illness are a staggering $190.2 billion or nearly 21% of annual medical spending in the United States. Childhood obesity alone is responsible for $14 billion in direct medical costs. Obesity has risen a full 34% since 1960, while morbid obesity is up sixfold. If the prevalence continues on the current trend, it is estimated that by 2030 almost half of the world ’s population will be overweight or obese.

In conclusion, most experimental data on immune changes with aging show a decline in many immune parameters when compared to young healthy subjects. The bulk of these changes is termed immunosenescence. Immunosenescence has been considered for some time as detrimental because it often leads to subclinical accumulation of pro-inflammatory factors and inflammaging. Together, immunosenescence and inflammaging are suggested to stand at the origin of most of the diseases of the elderly, such as infections, cancer, autoimmune disorders, and chronic inflammatory diseases. However, an increasing number of gerontologists have chall...

The long term poor health outcomes in people who have experienced multiple adverse events in childhood have been well documented since the original CDC-Kaiser study in the late 1990's. Those people who have experienced four or more adverse childhood experiences (ACE) are at significantly increased risk of chronic disease such as cancer, heart disease and diabetes as well as mental illness and health risk behaviours. The ACE pyramid is a model that describes the relationship between ACEs, disease and potentially early death.

Achieving ketosis by engaging in a very low-carbohydrate, high-fat lifestyle is an effective means of losing weight, breaking insulin and leptin resistance, reversing type 2 diabetes and fatty liver, reducing blood pressure, reversing the inflammation of visceral fat, and may even cause partial or total remission of selected cancers. So what’s the problem? The problem comes when people remain ketotic for extended periods. We know with confidence that long-term ketosis poses substantial risk for health complications because thousands of children have followed ketogenic diets over the years as a means of suppressing in...
