Social media bullying is getting the parliamentary attention it deserves – but politicians must focus on what’s going on behind this toxic behaviourOne of the most important breakthroughs in public health came in1847, when a Hungarian doctor, Ignaz Semmelweis, discovered that surgeons could dramatically cut mortality rates by disinfecting their hands. At the time, he was ridiculed by his medical contemporaries.
