COVID-19 and Chronic disease

Just 2 weeks ago we at C3 were moving forward with a fairly packed agenda of innovative ideas to prevent chronic (non-communicable) disease or NCDs. While we all worry about the impact of the virus on our friends and families we will also take the time to reflect on our work.

Smoking, vaping and you – is vaping a real way to quit?

Although not as nationally renowned as Christmas or Easter, National No Smoking Day (11 March), is a day worth celebrating. C3's intern, a US university student, shares the differences between the smoking and vaping culture in the US and UK. Here in the UK, e-cigarettes seem to be advertised largely as a healthier alternative to smoking and a way to achieve smoking cessation. In the US, however, the story is quite different.

The mental health & wellbeing of nurses

Here at C3 Collaborating for Health, we try to look at issues that impact nursing, but which generally don’t generate enough mainstream commentary, despite being serious concerns for nurses and the health community. It’s remarkable that so little has been done to reduce the incidence of this distress.

Alcohol and cancer – are those pints a problem?

People tend to assume cancer is mainly passed down through families, but genetic factors only play a major role in 5% - 10% of all cancer types. In fact, most cancers are caused by DNA mutations that occur during a person’s lifetime due to environmental factors. Did you know that alcohol – even in moderation – has been linked to cancer as one of those factors?

Is 10,000 steps a day the key to a healthy lifestyle?

With 10,000 steps as the goal for healthy living, we might assume that it’s the magic number to help eliminate our risk for heart disease, clear up our skin, give us the body of Beyoncé... right? Well turns out there is less scientific evidence to the magic number than we might think. Only now are researchers beginning to look into the effects of achieving 10,000 steps a day.

Promoting alcohol awareness at work – a win-win for all

A growing number of employers are recognising the benefit of raising alcohol awareness in the workplace – not because they suspect employees are drinking on the job, but because they believe it is just as valuable to promote a healthier relationship with alcohol as it is to promote a healthy diet and exercise. Not convinced? Here are 10 reasons why every employer should be promoting Alcohol Awareness.
