Are the middle classes in denial about alcohol use?
Conclusion Overall, this research provides some early findings of so-called ‘white collar’ workers' views of drinking behaviours in the UK. Although the study was very small, with only 49 volunteers' views analysed, it is useful in determining emerging themes, and the researchers do state that there was relative consistency across the five groups. The researchers also note that ‘strong personalities’ within the group may have influenced how the other participants responded. Research among larger groups of white collar workers is needed to draw firmer conclusions about the drinking culture in the U...

Sanofi CEO: It's Not A Plavix Hangover, We're Investing In Launching New Drugs
Sanofi, which has been one of the best-performing drug stocks over the past year, is getting hit today because the company said that earnings in 2013 will be somewhere between flat and down 5%. That's a big deal because Sanofi had previously said that 2013 would be a "trough year," the low point before it returns to growth after facing patent expirations for Plavix, once one of the biggest selling medicines in the world, and other drugs. The company reiterated its guidance out to 2015, despite pointed questions from analysts, but the stock is still trading down almost 6% on the New York Stock Exchange. (Sour...

Alcohol: friend and foe | Dean Burnett
People typically abstain from alcohol in January, sometimes getting sponsored for this. But it's possible that alcohol isn't as bad as is often made out.

Quite badly, as it turns out.It always happens at this time of year, the collective Christmas hangover coupled with the new year resolutions to get in shape mean alcohol is the first thing to go for many. You can even be sponsored for, as the term Dryathlon enters our vocabulary. Our Olympic Legacy looks different to what I expected.

What's for dinner in 2035?
Alex Renton imagines what two families – one rich, the other hard-up – might be eating in the futurePredicting what we will eat in Britain in 2035 comes down to how gloomy you are about the future. Will stagnant growth have pushed us down the list of rich nations so far that we can't import any foods any more? Or will new energy sources and acceptance of food bio-tech mean that 3-D food printers will be pumping out nutritionally enriched burgers and sushi in all our homes? Will climate change mean land in Britain has to be devoted to crops, not meat, to keep 70 million of us fed? The hard-up familyWe're growing...

The postdrome: migraine's silent sister | Scicurious
Scicurious talks about her experience of postdrome, the little-known aftermath of a migraineLast week I had a migraine. To some that won't mean much, but fellow sufferers will know that it means hours, or even days, of nausea, light sensitivity, sound sensitivity, and crushing, pulsing pain. The kind of pain that makes you think (in the moments when you can think at all) that self- trepanation with the rusty drill from the understairs cupboard might be a viable option. Eventually - minutes, hours, or days, later - the pain subsides. For me the days following a migraine are filled with a mixture of relief and mental exhaust...
