Some people know things others do not. That a home is supposed to be a place you feel safe. Comfortable. A little haven from the rest of the world where you can relax and just be yourself. Some people do not live with a drunk.
So if it is saving lives or preventing deaths that matter so much in this country - why haven't we had some high profile police investigations and a high profile trial after the 1200 or so deaths at the Mid Staffordshire, NHS, Foundation, Trust?
Bone cancer is one of the least well understood cancers, yet the statistics are simple and shocking. Over 20% of people diagnosed with bone cancer die within a year and in 2008 bone and connective tissue cancer killed more than a thousand people in the UK alone.
I believe I speak for the overwhelming majority of doctors in the NHS when I say I went into medicine to practice evidence based, not corporate-influenced medicine.
In the UK, as the obesity rates soar and healthcare costs rise, the government is contemplating putting a "fat tax" on food in England. Will this succeed in encouraging people to make healthy choices or will it drive them to buy cheaper, lower quality foods?
I always look at each client as an individual. How many carbohydrates they should eat, what type of training will work best for them (the balance of resistance and cardiovascular training, suitable rep ranges) and many other factors.
It's now nineteen years since my diagnosis and Multiple Sclerosis has led me onto a career path I couldn't have imagined during my early days of working in TV. I now teach the Alexander Technique out of the Pimlico Centre, seeing between five and eight students a day.
Varicose veins can be largely only cosmetic. Possibly, that is why male patients are reluctant to seek out treatment. However symptoms such as chronic aching and itching can cause great discomfort, and in some severe cases can rupture and cause ulcers in the legs.
I suffer from depression. I have for a while, and I'm tempted to say 'on and off'; but I think it's always sort of there, waiting for a moment to rear its head. Some days it's an effort to leave the house; some days I want to run out the door and sprint to wherever I'm going, singing showtunes.
I recovered from alcoholism when I was able to stop drinking. Finally. I recovered from being disabled when I was able to maintain walking again. Consistently. I recovered from the years of isolation when I was able to live back in the world again. Joyfully. So many recoveries.
While the amount of people who smoke had been going steadily down since the fifties, in the last six years that decline has stalled. Although nearly two out of three want to quit and one in ten tell us they're 'desperate' to get rid of their addiction, around 20% of the UK still smoke.
If an alien had asked me why all these people had chosen to get up early on a Sunday morning and run 13.1 miles for fun, I would have appreciated their confusion. So why did over 30,000 of us - many paying for the pleasure - turn up at the same time to run in what was effectively a big circle?
Botox in men is becoming increasingly commonplace. From Cliff Richard to David Hassellhoff, support for the treatment in the male community is such that it's recently been christened with it's own special "man name": Brotox.
Historically yoga was more than just a method of teaching; it was a way of life. You dedicated yourself to a lifestyle and culture that surpassed meditation techniques and included healthy eating habits, bathing habits, social interaction and work.
So what is the standard treatment for leg ulcers in the UK? Unfortunately it has still not moved on from the dressing and compression treatment so popular 100 years ago.
It's the sorry truth most women can't handle because they are too dishonest with themselves to acknowledge that they have put on too much weight or have poor eating habits. It's time to start owning your fabulousness and your flaws.
