And the "Metro", where I saw it and vented about it. Amongst other things.

>> And Prof Dame Sally Davies, Englandís chief medical officer, said:

The message to the public remains the same: people should always follow the advice of healthcare professionals. To update policies, we need further research to inform them.

Sounds sound. And perhaps the healthcare professionals may alter their advice in the light of further research.

That's certainly possible. Any decent healthcare should be evidence based and willing to change in the light of new data. However, such change should come from the health professionals themselves, not from headline writers in hack rags :-S

My gp surgery is taking a sensible approach to this. I currently have the tiniest hint of an infection (since the kidney stone incident of a few years ago, I like to keep on top of any renal abnormalities), so they don't want to give me antibiotics until it gets worse (on the offchance that it gets better by itself).
