  • In the UK, 25% of boys diagnosed with learning disabilities. Government cracks down on misdiagnoses.

    Countries like the UK are substantially ahead of the U.S. when it comes to recognizing and advocating solutions for the boy crisis in education. In the United States, boys are the vast majority of students diagnosed with learning disabilities (75%, to be exact), a phenomenon shared by other western countries.

    The number of students diagnosed with learning disabilities (LD) has mushroomed over the past several decades, resulting in a controversy as to how many are genuine cases and how many are misdiagnoses. Grame Paton at UK magazine The Telegraph tells us:

    Official figures show that almost one million boys in English state schools had some form of learning difficulty, behavioural problem or speech and language impairment last year

  • Ten things everyone should know about cancer research uk's sexism

    Ten things everyone should know about cancer research uk's sexism

    Over recent months and years this blog has published a number of articles highlighting sexism by Cancer Research UK, with a particular focus on its disgraceful Race for Life event. As the backslash against Race for Life grows ever stronger and as so many new readers become interested in this issue I felt it was time we took a wider look at CRUK's activities as a whole. Race for Life is simply a symptom of wider problems at the organisation and in my view the entire charity is institutionally sexist, particualr given the fact that, even according to CRUK's own reports "In general men are at significantly greater risk than women from nearly all of the common cancers that occur in both sexes". I therefore present a summary of the ten of the prevailing sexist attitudes

  • UK Government: End Unnecessary Male Circumcision in The UK

    UK Government: End Unnecessary Male Circumcision in The UK

    By Glen Poole

    Health Petition: UK Government: End Unnecessary Male Circumcision in The UK | Change.org
    When a baby boy bleeds to death in Oldham as the result of an Unnecessary Male Circumcision it is time to think again............ Male Circumcision is a risky, abusive and unnecessary practice that affects 1 billion men and boys worldwide. There isnít a single medical association in the world that recommends the practice and yet half a million boys in the UK will be subjected to Unnecessary Male Circumcision before their 16th birthday. The painful and unnecessary removal of a boyís foreskin is an abuse of a childís basic human right to be protected from damaging, dangerous and deadly practices. Many babies and boys in the UK are ...

  • Hate driven ideology behind Male Circumcision in Africa

    Hate driven ideology behind Male Circumcision in Africa

    A likeminded website recently published a story about the United Nations and World Health Organizationís plan to circumcise twenty eight million men, boys and infants in Sub Saharan Africa over the next five years. Since then, our ongoing research on the issue has produced more information for a wider audience. Adding to what is becoming a furor in the medical community over the ethics and efficacy of circumcision as a tool in the war against AIDS, the Journal of Public Health in Africa published an article written by Dr. Robert S. Van Howe and Dr. Michelle R. Storms of Michigan State University in December of last year. The article was just short of an excoriation of the Orange Farm study and WHO policy concerning the massive drive to ci...
