Sick building syndrome, with symptoms including lethargy and headaches, is thought to be caused by water-borne organisms spread by air conditioning. But research on purifying air for space stations has shown house plants can decrease pollutant levels in the air. more follows > Home File Index 480 Best Buys 487 Childcare Best Buys Knitting Your Money

It is, according to Mr John Pearce, consultant neurologist at Hull Royal Infirmary, a loud and unexplained noise which occurs in people's heads while they sleep. They wake up feeling that their head is exploding. He has examined ten people with the syndrome but thinks it is a common,  unreported, condition. Sufferers are usually middle-aged or elderly and more women than men are affected. more > Home File Index 480 Childcare 486 Childcare Best Buys Knitting Your Money

The unit is touring the UK over the next two years offering breast screening for over-45s and cervical cancer screening for all women employees. The service, provided by AMI Healthcare Group, is costing the PO £850,000 and is the largest of its kind undertaken in the UK. Cervical cancer kills 2,000 women in the UK each year, while breast cancer causes 15,000 deaths. more > Home File Index 480 Childcare 486 Childcare Best Buys Knitting Your Money

One 68-year-old man said: "It's more of a thunderclap than a pain, though you never know when it's coming, except that it's always when you're asleep". Mr Pearce says that the syndrome is not associated with headache, brain tumour or any other neurological condition. Nor is it related to excitement, food or alcohol the previous evening. Patients should be reassured that there is no cause for alarm and that no drug treatment is needed. more follows > Home File Index 480 Childcare 486 Childcare Best Buys Knitting Your Money

At present only 56% of children in the Third World are immunised against polio In most developed countries, where the vaccine was introduced in the '50s, the disease has become rare. There were only three cases in Britain in 1985. more follows > Home File Index 480 Best Buys 487 Childcare Best Buys Knitting Your Money
