Very large British retrospective longitudinal study quoted here that shows that encouraging #cycling greatly reduces deaths from #cancer and #heartdisease. It doesn't even touch on the fact that it would also reduce accidental deaths in #car #accidents.

"Cycling to work was associated with a 45 per cent lower risk of developing cancer and a 46 per cent lower risk of heart disease compared with commuting by car or public transit."

* How cycling to work could save thousands of lives a year on #CBC

STOP the Break-Up & Privatisation of Network Rail

Why is this important?

Network Rail was formed in 2002 after the tragic failure of the privately-owned Railtrack plc, which was heavily criticised over several #fatal train crashes in the late 1990s (particularly in #Southall and #Ladbroke Grove where 38 people lost their lives).

It was acknowledged at the time that #profit-making had proven #incompatible with the need to put the public’s #safety first.

Although Network Rail’s record hasn’t been perfect, it has demonstrably improved safety standards on our railways, and as long as it remains in public hands we can continue to work to improve it.

The Ecologist: Accidents, waste and weapons: nuclear power isn't worth the risks

Nuclear advocates must be admired for their optimism if nothing else, writes Mark Diesendorf. Disregarding over half a century of evidence that nuclear power is dangerous, expensive, enables the spread of nuclear weapons, and produces wastes we still don't know what to do with, still they cling to the 1950's dream of 'electricity to cheap to meter'.
