If consumers knew how farmed chickens were raised, they might never eat their meat again 24.4.2016 Guardian: Environment
The debate about animal welfare has intensified

The year 2012 marked a leap forward for animal welfare in the European Union. Farmers were no longer allowed to keep egg-laying hens in barren battery cages smaller than an A4 sheet of paper. Instead, the minimum requirement now is that hens are kept in a cage the size of an A4 sheet of paper, with an extra postcard-sized bit of shared space that allows them to scratch and nest. These are known as enriched cages.

Animal welfare campaigners would like to see them abolished too, saying they barely make a difference to the birds’ ability to express their natural behaviour and live free from stress. Around half of the eggs we eat are still produced in caged systems.

If you think comfortable families don’t get sucked into poverty, think again | Frances Ryan 14.4.2016 The Guardian -- Front Page
Helen and her husband could cope with her sudden terrible illness – but cut after cut has left them regularly going without food It’s frightening how life can change. Over a decade ago, Thomas Hemingford, now 45, was on a comfortable wage as a software development manager. His family – his wife Helen and their three children – lived in a home they owned on the outskirts of Harrogate in North Yorkshire. They went on holidays abroad, had two cars – and even bought a convertible as a “Sunday car”. But in 2002, bad luck hit: Helen became severely ill with ME and Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease , a progressive disability that affects her legs, arms, hearing and sight. Helen, now 41, had to give up work as a financial consultant and Thomas left his job to become his wife’s full-time carer.

UN could have prevented Haiti cholera epidemic with $2,000 health kit – study 14.4.2016 The Guardian -- Front Page

Researchers find screening tests and antibiotics could have warded off illness, which has taken thousands of lives and will cost more than $2bn to eradicate

The devastating Haiti cholera epidemic that has claimed thousands of lives and will cost more than $2bn to eradicate could have been prevented if the United Nations had used a basic health kit for a total of less than $2,000, scientists have found.

A team of Yale epidemiologists and lawyers has looked at how the cholera bacterium was introduced to Haiti by United Nations peacekeepers relocated there in the aftermath of its 2010 earthquake. Yale’s startling finding is that simple screening tests costing $2.54 each, combined with preventive antibiotics at less than $1 per peacekeeper, could have avoided one of the worst outbreaks of the deadly disease in modern history.
