Welcome to the debut of HealthInsightUK – a forum for doctors, journalist and anyone interested in medicine and health who thinks less medicine and a more genuine commitment to health is a good idea. Our contributors all have their own blogs which turn a sceptical eye on common assumptions about prevention and suggest better solutions. It’s a combination HealthInsightUK intends to promote.
Our lead feature explains why a particular diet could help to actually treat cancer, not just be a handmaiden to drugs and surgery. The assumption that a prescription is the best way to treat any disorders appears most wrong-headed for diabetes; one of the blogs borrowed from a contributor’s site clearly summarises why.Jerome Burne – Editor
