Did anyone see the stories about the UK's poor performance in cancer survival compared to rest of Europe. True, but it's only half the story, and The Telegraph were particularly misleading in claiming UK was the worst.
Is cancer survival the "worst in Europe"?

This is a video of what is now a classic experiment in developmental psychology. It shows a mother happily engaging face-to-face with an equally happy baby. The mother then ceases all facial engagement – the “still face” – to which the baby reacts by trying, with all its might, to reestablish the happy interactions. It’s quite a marked and powerful effect

A clear but revealing infographic on the impact of vaccines on diseases in the US, by graphic designer Leon Farrant (I saw it via a Forbes article by Matthew Herper).

I tend to sneeze when I move from the dark into the light (especially bright sunlight). I've seen the exact same thing in my 18-month old son, so I looked into the phenemonon a bit more.

A question many parents ask themselves - should I let me baby watch TV? An interview by Jim Al-Khalili with psychologist Annette Karmiloff-Smith on BBC's The Life Scientific inspired me to have a look at the issue.

The American Academy of Pediatrics say no telly whatsoever; Karmiloff-Smith says it's OK if the programme is carefully chosen and it's not a substitute for parent-child interaction.

Let me know what you think!
