Women in UP live 12 years lesser than their Kerala sisters, reveals Lancet report 14.11.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
On an average a woman in Uttar Pradesh will live twelve years lesser than in Kerala. This is one of the many glaring findings of the India State-Level Disease Burden Initiative report published in top medical journal Lancet on Tuesday. For the first time ever, India has released numbers of state-wise burden of diseases tracking trends over the past thirty years which highlights disparities between states. National-level data can obscure disparities across India’s varied landscape, so a detailed understanding of health challenges at the state level is necessary to ensure that policies are responsive to the specific context of each state, it says. While Assam, Uttar Pradesh and Chattisgarh have the highest disease burden rates, while Kerala and Goa have the lowest rates.

Water quality poor in Ramnagaram: report 10.11.2017 deccanherald.com
More than 90% of drinking water samples collected from houses in a cluster of villages in Ramnagaram district near Bengaluru are unfit for human consumption, according to a new study. When researchers tested the source of water, they found that in 80% of cases the water sources were also contaminated.
