Leading causes of death in the world
REPUBLICANS TO THE WORLD: WHAT DO YOU WANT US TO DO? There was a general consensus in the Capitol yesterday: PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP thoroughly embarrassed the United States standing next to Russian President VLADIMIR PUTIN on the world’s biggest stage. SEN. TOM COTTON (R-ARK.), a reliable Trump ally, criticized the president -- albeit not by name. REP. WILL HURD, a Texas Republican who was a covert CIA operative before becoming a politician, told CNN’s Jake Tapper, “I’ve seen Russian intelligence manipulate many people in my career, and I never thought the U.S. president would be one of them.” SEN. LINDSEY GRAHAM (R-S.C.), Trump’s golf buddy, even had choice words. Story Continued Below BUT, PRIVATELY, senior-level Republican aides and lawmakers had a second message: WHAT THE HELL DO YOU WANT US TO DO? HOLD HEARINGS? They’ve done that, they say. Nearly every Capitol Hill probe into the 2016 election showed that Putin’s Russia did, … [Read more...] about POLITICO Playbook: GOP to the world: What would you like us to do?

In 2016, there were more than twice as many suicides as homicides in the United States. The figures come two days after the death of celebrity designer Kate Spade, which has sparked a national conversation about suicide. She had struggled with depression and anxiety for years, according to a statement released by her husband, Andrew Spade. “She was actively seeking help and working closely with her doctors to treat her disease,” he wrote. C.D.C. officials, however, said that the national increase in suicide rates cannot be linked to a particular mental health diagnosis. The new analysis found that nearly … [Read more...] about Suicide Is Increasingly Common in the U.S.

Are we finally gaining the upper hand in the "war on cancer," declared 44 years ago by President Nixon? Dr. David Agus says that while we haven't won the battle yet, the future of it is shifting and looking brighter. Agus, the author of the new book "The Lucky Years: How to Thrive in the Brave New World of Health," published by Simon & Schuster, a division of CBS, said cancer is moving in the direction of becoming a manageable condition for many patients, much in the way people live with arthritis or type 1 diabetes. "For the first time ever, I can walk into a patient's room and have optimism. Not optimism I can cure them, but optimism I can make them live longer and better with this horrible disease," said Agus, who leads the USC Norris Westside Cancer Center.
