Interview with Susi Snyder, from the Don’t Bank on the Bomb campaign

Susi Snyder is the project lead for the PAX No Nukes project, she also coordinates the Don’t Bank on the Bomb research and campaign.

From daily The Morning Star in Britain, 3 August 2020:

Nuclear weapons are incompatible with action on climate,’ report warns

CAMPAIGNERS called for a “vigorous and united” movement to abolish nuclear weapons today, as a new report warned of the bomb’s role in climate catastrophe.

Ahead of the 75th anniversary of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki nuclear attacks later this week, Don’t Bank on the Bomb’s study argues that ridding Britain of its nuclear stockpile is essential in addressing climate change.

Nuclear Weapons, the Climate and Our Environment warns that the combination of a new arms race and increasing disruption from climate change make nuclear war more likely.

Dinosaurs could get cancer


This 4 August 2020 video, in Indonesian, is about the recent discovery that a Centrosaurus dinosaur had bone cancer.

Translated from Dutch NOS radio today:

Canadian scientists have for the first time found evidence that dinosaurs could also develop bone cancer.

Paleontologists discovered this when they re-examined malformations on the fossil of a Centrosaurus – a horned, herbivorous dinosaur that lived in the Cretaceous period more than 70 million years ago.

The fossil was excavated in the Canadian province of Alberta in 1989 and was notable for a fibula defect, which was then assessed by scientists as a healed fracture. New research with detailed CT scans found it likely to be an aggressive form of bone cancer.

The tumor was the size of an apple, the scientists said in an article in the scientific journal Lancet Oncology.

Coronavirus survivors have mental health problems

The toll of COVID-19 on mental health in the United States

COVID-19 has had some very stark and very obvious consequences.

The United States has less than five percent of the world’s population, but almost a quarter of its deaths with coronavirus.

But there is also a hidden horror unfolding here and it may soon get even worse.

People with mental health and addiction issues, already vulnerable, have found themselves even more exposed.

Some have simply been unable to cope.

From Brain, Behavior, and Immunity medical journal, 30 July 2020, based on research in Italy:

Anxiety and depression in COVID-19 survivors: role of inflammatory and clinical predictors

Highlights

COVID-19, such as other coronaviruses, is associated with psychiatric implication.

55% of the sample presented a clinical score for at least one mental disorder.

Psychiatric history, setting, and length of hospitalization influenced psychopathology.

Females suffered more than males, scoring higher in all the measures.

There is the need to diagnose and treat psychiatric sequelae in COVID-19 survivors. …

“After three weeks of treatments, I was healing from COVID, at home, had no fever, and just a little cough. But sometimes at night, my breath could go away all of a sudden, making me feel as if I was to die. I knew what it was because I had suffered from panic attacks in the past. I stayed there out on the balcony, for hours, trying to put fresh air into my lungs. It was terrible. Panic made me suffer more than COVID.”
