Homeopathy 'can help patients'  - BBC  A six-year study at Bristol Homeopathic Hospital shows over 70% of patients with chronic diseases reported positive health changes after treatment. More than 6,500 patients took part in the study with problems ranging from eczema to menopause and arthritis. The biggest improvements were seen in children - 89% of under 16s with asthma reported improvement. Of the group, 75% felt 'better' or 'much better', as did 68% of eczema patients under 16. The results come just months after a study in The Lancet concluded that using homeopathy was no better than taking dummy drugs.

A poll of more than 2,000 people by private health provider Bupa found 34% supported charges for treatment for people who smoke, drink or are obese. More than four out of 10 favoured some sort of penalty for people they considered to have self-inflicted health problems. And 8% said people who led an unhealthy lifestyle should be denied treatment. "There is clear evidence from this study to support the view that individuals feel they should be accountable for their own health and well-being.
