2) He also says the church has failed to be judgemental enough about people's lifestyles. How truly out of touch can an MP be?! What a dick.
1) Tory MP Gerald Howarth has attacked PM for his role in same-sex marriage and warns of dangers of the “aggressive homosexual community”!
Younger bowel cancer patients should be offered genetic test for Lynch syndrome, linked to a higher risk of bowel, womb and ovarian cancers.
SEE patient.co.uk/health/posther… @rubiesmummy08: @DoctorChristian may i have some advice on shingles and postherpectic neuralgia -in so much pain!
YES, V IMP @monkey_boyuk: @DoctorChristian as you're a frequent gym user. Rest days yes or no? Everyone says yes but I feel worse after!
If all GPs would only embrace technologies like the phone (!) and Skype, I believe we could cut A&E attendances considerably. Prove me wrong

Young children given repeated courses of antibiotics are at greater risk of becoming obese. More evidence linking gut bacteria and weight?

Fascinating the people trying to tell me what art is. I'm not convinced that they are the most informed experts!
Things that keep me awake at night: cancer, tax, Ebola, Barry Manilow.

Turmeric has long been suggested as a powerful healer -now more and more studies seem to confirm this.
Interesting results from a German study finding turmeric may boost the brain's ability to heal itself, by encouraging growth of nerve cells.
@DoctorChristian it's awesome how everyone says you'd protest something similar about gay people. Not seen 'Cure Me I'm Gay', evidently.

I'm sitting in @CafeMurano33 and a lady has just come up and asked me if I am Michael Portillo. I'm distraught.
Pleased to see 'human zoo' actors hitting back at ludicrous protests against them. Suppressing artistic freedom suppresses all our freedoms.
A private viewing @ChristiesInc tonight. There is a drawing I love. I'm going to hide it behind something else so no one else sees it!
Ok so perhaps the word 'crap' was a little harsh when it comes to arnica ibuprofen gel. I'm having a grumpy day.

My beautiful funny naughty wonderful talented school friend Susan died of cancer early this morning. She was my age. I am heartbroken.
Ah twitter, everyone's an expert!
AGREE! @vixdenny: @DoctorChristian it should be more about listening when they say something is wrong rather than earlier screening

@DoctorChristian People don't get probability / uncertainty- tests only accurate if prevalence above uncertainty! Bayes theorem stuff...

3) also, as often misunderstood by press, screening tests r4 asymptomatic people, not those with symptoms who always should be investigated.
2) it's not driven by money, it's because younger cervix gives more false +ve results leading to unnecessary treatments with complications.
1) Another tragic story of a girl dying from cervical cancer at 22. More cries 4 age of smears 2b lowered will follow. It's not that simple.
.@NHSChoices this is 2014. Why do you endorse made-up nonsense like "reflexology"? HT @DoctorChristian @zeno001
