Self-Care (Minor Ailments) (26 Feb 2010)

Howard Stoate: ...to self-care. It is worth listing the minor ailments that I mean. They are generally part of everyday life and include backaches, coughs and colds, headaches, toothache, indigestion, skin problems, allergies and some respiratory problems. In many cases people manage these minor ailments already through self-care using an over-the-counter, or OTC, product, but research conducted by the...

Asthma (16 Jun 1999)

John Hutton: ...1997, 23 per cent. of boys and 18 per cent. of girls aged two to 15 had been diagnosed at some time in the past as suffering from asthma. Similarly, in the international study of asthma and allergies in childhood which was published last year in the British Medical Journal, 20 per cent. of surveyed children aged between 12 and 14 had had a diagnosis of asthma at some time. The prevalence...

Assisted Dying Bill [HL] - Second Reading (22 Oct 2021)

Baroness Meacher: ...alleviate. A small but significant minority of dying people will experience intolerable symptoms. Let me give some examples. One is constant nausea and vomiting, night and day, which, because of an allergy to antiemetics, cannot be alleviated by palliative care services. Another is fungating wounds from a cancer protruding through the skin, perhaps in the cheek; I have a friend who...

National Breastfeeding Week (24 Jun 2015)

Alison Thewliss: ...breastfeeding is good for maternal and infant health. Benefits to children from breastfeeding include reduced gastrointestinal, respiratory, urinary tract and ear infections, lower incidence of allergies and a reduced likelihood of developing obesity. For women who choose to breastfeed there are lower risks associated with breast and ovarian cancer, less chance of hip fractures and...

Asthma (25 Jun 2002)

Mrs Anne Campbell: ...25 years ago, the incidence of asthma is three to four times higher in adults and six times higher in children, and it is particularly problematic in the UK. The international study of asthma and allergies in childhood found that the highest number of children reporting asthma symptoms were in the UK, Australia, New Zealand and the Republic of Ireland. Asthma has also become more serious:...

The drug companies have attempted to...

Orders of the Day — Food and Environment Protection Bill [Lords] (5 Mar 1985)

Mr Dale Campbell-Savours: .... Pesticides can produce immediate symptoms, such as nausea and headaches, but many are also suspected of causing cancer, and there is a growing belief among researchers that they also cause allergies. Although most pesticides used in Britain have been passed by the pesticides safety precautions scheme, some have been banned in other countries; the popular paraquat has been banned in...

Orders of the Day — Baby Milk Products (Developing Countries) (26 Feb 1981)

George Young: ...preferable to breast milk itself. Mother's milk is the perfect food for babies. Not only is it free but it has all the nourishment a baby needs, and provides protection against common illnesses and allergies. I speak as a beneficiary. Despite the obvious advantages of breast milk, however, millions of mothers in poor countries are turning to manufactured substitutes. In many cases,...

Dyslexics (Diagnosis and Treatment) (20 Feb 1992)

Michael Fallon: ...therapist can help if there are fine motor co-ordination difficulties. If the child is easily distractable or over-active on some days and not on others, there may be some other sensitivity or food allergy—in such cases the dietician comes into his or her own. Sometimes, all those professionals need to get together to produce an integrated programme for the individual child, and I urge...

Orders of the Day — Health and Safety (Directors' Duties) Bill (4 Mar 2005)

Tim Boswell: ...most disappointing in the whole sphere of health and safety. The NHS employs many people and there are some difficult procedures. As some Members know, I have taken an interest in issues of latex allergy; indeed, the DWP has helpfully responded, for which I thank the Minister. There are also patient safety issues. Many things go wrong in the health service and I am not sure that locking up...

Egg Marketing Scheme (11 Dec 1956)

Mr Frederick Willey: ...that these are matters which would be better handled by a commission. I emphasise that it is for those reasons that a proposal for a commission has been put forward and not because of any innate allergy towards a producer board. On the contrary, we have supported a producer board and we can envisage within the commission a place for a producer board for eggs. What we are considering, as...

Child Abuse (17 Oct 2001)

Earl Howe: ...that is, if they are lucky; but exoneration, when it comes, is frequently by way of a specialist diagnosis of an unobvious clinical condition in the child: a congenital disorder, a birth injury, an allergy, autism, Asperger's syndrome, an adverse reaction to a vaccine, attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder, chronic fatigue syndrome, and so on. I have the highest regard for the...

Orders of the Day — Disability Living Allowance and Disability Working Allowance Bill: Introduction of Disability Living Allowance (7 Feb 1991)

Mr Alf Morris: ...now recall her letter—she wrote to me in November to say: My daughter was 19 three days ago. She is severely disabled and her problem is epilepsy which is caused by severe food intolerance or allergy. Because of this she is on a very strict and, therefore, expensive diet. When she was 16, in November 1987, she was awarded the whole diet allowance under the Supplementary Benefit rules....

Identity Cards Bill (21 Mar 2005)

the Earl of Erroll: ...I think I shall get a better bargain. Why should I have to reveal both identities? The third reason for ID cards, which is often cited, is for health purposes when one needs to know about someone's allergies or diseases but not necessarily what the person is called. In fact, if a Minister was scraped off the street and it was discovered that he had a particularly nasty notifiable disease,...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2021 (Amendment No. 19) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2021 (14 Dec 2021)

Robin Swann: ...interests; people with a learning disability or autistic people who cannot be vaccinated with reasonable adjustments; people with a medical contradiction to all current vaccines, such as a severe allergy; and those who had serious adverse reactions to their first dose. Time-limited exemptions will also be available for those who have a short-term medical condition or are undergoing certain...

[Bob Russell in the Chair] — Patient Safety (18 Mar 2010)

Howard Stoate: ...relevant part of the patient record is absurd. I do not know how a pharmacist can carry out a meaningful patient medication review without knowledge of the patient's history-their medication and allergy history and other important aspects of their care. Nor do I see how they can properly advise GPs how to make sensible medication changes and checks if that information cannot be passed back...

Nanotechnologies and Food: Science and Technology Committee Report: Motion to Take Note (13 Jul 2010)

Lord Krebs: ...quality first draft, which made our task easier in the closing stages. Our specialist adviser, Professor Stephen Holgate of Southampton University Medical School, a major international authority on allergy, kept us on the scientific straight and narrow and provided lucid technical input at key moments. As part of our inquiry, we travelled to Washington DC, where the embassy officials...

Orders of the Day — Mental Health (Amendment) Bill [Lords] (22 Mar 1982)

Mr David Atkinson: ...place. Last year, I tabled a number of questions to my right hon. Friend with a view to urging the Government to carry out further research into the problem. I much regret the recent closure of the allergy clinic at Basingstoke. There is an increasingly held theory by those who are researching into schizophrenia that diet may be a cause of it. Schizophrenia can be alleviated by various...
