Those who frequently eat organic foods lowered their overall risk of developing cancer, a study published Monday in JAMA Internal Medicine finds.

Led by Julia Baudry, an epidemiologist at Institut National de la Sante et de la Recherche Medicale in France, a team of researchers looked at the diets of 68,946 French adults.

Blog: Signing a charter – and ticking off a pledge
It was a pleasure to be in Plymouth today to sign the Ethical Care Charter with Plymouth City Council. Plymouth joins the dozens of councils who have made a commitment to pay the living wage to care workers, guarantee training and ensure decent standards for those who need care in their homes. I signed the charter alongside Council Leader Tudor Evans and Councillor Ian Tuffin, and it was great to hear their passion for their city – and their plans for the future.

Cleaners at the forefront of needlestick injuries
Almost two thirds of workers who successfully claim compensation for needlestick injuries are cleaners – mainly because the needles weren’t correctly disposed. “These figures are a timely reminder of the risks to health and safety posed by used needlesticks, and how they can affect staff in all sectors, and not just clinical staff,” warned UNISON assistant national health and safety officer Robert Baughan. He was speaking at the start of European Health and Safety Week, which focuses this year on hazardous substances. A UNISON analysis of nearly 100 successful compensation claims for needlestick inj...

Extortionate parking charges and fines for health staff, patients and visitors must stop, says UNISON
  Healthcare staff are wasting valuable time searching for parking spaces and two-thirds (64%) have been fined when trying to park at work, according to a survey published today (Sunday) by UNISON. More than three in five (63%) NHS staff say they have to pay for parking permits, in some cases costing £100 or more a month. But hardly any – just 8% – have a guaranteed space. As a result, more than half (54%) can end up being late for work, with some spending an hour a day looking for a space, and one in five (21%) up to 30 minutes doing so.
