Thanet tops for the wrong things

Normally you would have to be subscribed to a very special mailing to get all the juicy Thanet news tid-bits before they get blogged but just this once I'm blogging this one first.

Thanet ranks in a most unpleasant top 10. Make of that what you will.

There are some of us who have been campaigning about thos growing problem since the change to 24 hour licensing, including backing dispersal orders etc. Others have told us that the situation is no worse than it was, and indeed better than in their haey day of the fifties. Too many peoples lives are continually blighted by the stupidity of alcohol fuelles behaviour. If this money helps tackle it, it is welcome; ifthis publicity makes others admit the problem, it is welcome. I don't like to say I told you so, but in this case I surely did!

Thanet is apparently top of the country for the incidence of ectopic pregnancy. It seems that since 1938 to 1970s doctors prescribed vitamins to pregnant women without exactly mentioning that they were laced with oestregen (in the belief not shared with patients that it would prevent miscarriage) . Female babies born to such women then tended to develop the greater tendency in later life to ectopic pregnancy.

Now that causation can be ruled out what could be the explanation for this Thanet statistic ? Surely not contamination of the aquifer with chemicals that have a developmental toxicant effect ?

Best wishes from the retired geezer

Let's hope it makes a positive difference then.
