Comment on: HPA issues volcanic ash advice
It's been very quiet in London(no planes overhead) and its been so nice to just listen to the birds. So far my family has not experienced any harm from the volcanic ash.
Did the experts warm the people before it the volcano erupted? and Is there no way to clean up the air? It would be terrific if a flying vacuum cleaner existed.
Comment on: WHO warns that social factors are key to health
Social Injustice is occuring everywhere in every aspect of everyone's life. This is not a new thing. Our quality of life is not as good as it use to be. My husband and I came back to the UK from working in the USA and we have encountered social injustise on a grand scale, from letting agents to landlords to neighbours. We have a child and because we do, we have been rejected on many accounts from letting a flat. This is unfair and everyday feel discrimiation. We should be able to live where ever we choose. Private Landlords rebuild flats and refurbish all the time but they do not change the thinkness of the walls or provide sound proof cielings or floorings. Just as our neighbours can hear us, we can hear them especially in the middle of the night. These experiences and many others, have certainly decreased our quality of life and I am sure has decreased our lifespan.
