Today’s @ONS data shows a staggering level of variation in the years of life you can expect to live in good health in England and Wales depending on your social and economic circumstances. (1/3)
People born in the most deprived areas of England are expected to have over 18 fewer years of life in good health than those born in the least deprived areas. (2/3)
To reduce these stark inequalities, cross-government action and investment is needed on the wider determinants that influence our health.

Disconnection from nature can be bad for our mental health.

“What I am attempting to do now is develop a rich psychoterratic typology that provides a language and conceptual landscape to match the rich range of emotions and feelings people have about nature and place."

psychoterratica.com/more.html @GlennAlb
To see that societies & natural environments continually ‘co-produce’ each other in the same spot is to understand our problem synthetically as one of ‘humanity-in-nature’ and ‘nature-in-humanity’ rather than merely additively as one of humanity & nature.

I will do my best to state this concisely, but of course difficult in a tweet.
1 - In order for there to be trust, there must be full recognition and accounting of the harm that has been created to FB patient support groups, so that people like @itsMandaPanda have justice for what happened to them. That must be initiated by Facebook.

In case @hmkyale + @drjrums wonder why I got so shirty about JAMA article calling for #SDOH mining from social networks like, say, Facebook (shirty evidence here: threadreaderapp.com/thread/1075892…) allow me to expound. #cyberwoke
First, ICYMI, Facebook's treachery against patient + #MeToo communities in wake of Cambridge Analytica cock-up reveal. PHI revealed in what members thought were walled gardens? NOPE. cnbc.com/2018/07/11/fac… #HBOC #cyberwoke
Then there was the #MeToo community - 10s of 1000s of members - that got its plug pulled when they complained: wired.com/story/how-a-me… #cyberwoke

OK. So there's a piece (no paywall) on @JAMA_current today by Freddy Abnousi (head of #healthcare @facebook), @hmkyale, +@DrJRums "Social Determinants of Health in the Digital Age: Determining the Source Code for Nurture." jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/… #cyberwoke /1
Before you think this is any kind of good news, remember that @Facebook has successfully incinerated democracy in several places, in the process turning all of us into meat puppet data cash machines (we don't get the cash) and now ... #cyberwoke /2
In addition to knowing where we are, who we're with, what we like, and what we think, they want our health data? How big of a FUCK NO, NO WAY, OMFG HAVE YOU LOST YOUR EVERLOVIN' MIND will we have to raise to kill this? #cyberwoke /3

“Community wealth building models include social enterprises, community development corporations, employee stock ownership plans (ESOPs), municipally owned enterprises, community land trusts, and cooperatives.”

“That has major implications for national productivity and economic growth, not to mention politics. A country in which a handful of coastal cities represent the bulk of national wealth is not a stable one.”

I've been researching the idea of Unconditional Basic Income since 2013. Here's a list of findings I've compiled from various UBI experiments, unconditional cash transfer studies, and cash dividend research.

The data speaks for itself.

1) "The design and framing of Mincome led participants to view payments through a pragmatic lens, rather than the moralistic lens through which welfare is viewed… this paper finds that Mincome participation did not produce social stigma."

Although there was a slight decrease in hours worked per year when primary earners were provided a basic income guarantee in the 1970s, that emerged as a result of spending more time between jobs, reasonably looking for a *good* job instead of *any* job.

A Balanced Investment Portfolio For Equitable Health And Well-Being Is An Imperative, And Within Reach

Social Determinants As Public Goods.

@LenMNichols & @LaurenTaylorMPH demonstrate that the underprovision of interventions on #SDoH can be addressed through a novel but practical community financing mechanism.

“While the degree to which human beings pursue that which they think is good for them has not and will probably never change, what they believe is good for them can change and from time to time has, radically.”

Given the #NHS70 'birthday present', thought I'd share my reflections on recent changes to funding for health, public health, & social care in England. This is based on a talk I just gave to @DartmouthInst in US.
Credit @TheIFS, @HealthFdn, @TheKingsFund & others for images. 1/
Both in the US and England, the balance of money and political power lies firmly with the (acute) provider sector at the expense of community orgs, public health, social services, and (perhaps to a slightly lesser extent) mental health and primary care. 2/
Yet, very little of what determines both individual and population health is due to the provider sector, instead, social determinants and unhealthy behaviours are much more important. #SDOH 3/

The effects of public health policies on health inequalities: a review of reviews. Thomson et al, 2017.

“...fiscal and regulation policies were more beneficial for reducing or preventing health inequalities than educational campaigns.”

#SDoH #PEoH #HiAP thelancet.com/pdfs/journals/…
“...how broad policy initiatives for tackling inequalities in health that start off with social determinants (upstream) approach drift downstream to largely individual lifestyle factors, as well as the general trend of investing a the individual level.”
“The consequence of this is a widespread public sector culture in which well-meaning policymakers, practitioners, researchers and members of the public collude in sustaining a ‘cargo cult’ of health behaviorism.” #SDoH #HiAP #PEoH

We are dying younger, in part, because of deliberate policy choices made over decades:
• Rejecting universal health care.
• Cutting taxes for the rich.
• Shunning income support.
• Abandoning universal child care.

Those choices increasingly set us apart in the world. #SDoH
“...any man’s death diminishes me,
