Look Good Feel Great Why choosing a pair of cut-price shades really can be a headache
Budget sunglasses from big-name supermarkets and clothes stores can end up worsening eyesight or cause double vision or headaches.................... An astonishing three-quarters of cutprice sunglasses from High Street stores failed key laboratory tests – breaching British standards. Researchers for the consumer group Which? bought three pairs of sunglasses from each of seven stores: Asda, Marks & Spencer, New Look, Poundland, Primark, Sainsbury’s and Tesco. All the glasses tested, which were bought in July for £5 or less, clearly stated that they complied with the British standard for sunglasses, but 15 pairs failed key lab tests. New Look was the only store where all three pairs passed. Among the problems were that lenses in pairs from Tesco and Sainsbury’s let in different amounts of light, which can make objects appear closer to the wearer than they actually are. All three Poundland pairs could lead to a wearer experiencing headaches or double vision, researchers found. And one from Primark were made in such a way that they could worsen astigmatism, a condition in which the cornea isn’t perfectly spherical. Asda, M&S, Sainsbury’s and Tesco said their
sunglasses were tested to British standards, with the latter two disputing the Which? findings and M&S expressing their surprise. Asda and Poundland will be investigating immediately. Primark declined to comment. Which? is sending its findings to trading standards officials for further investigation. ...and be especially vigilante when purchasing children’s sunglasses as damage caused at an early age can be ireparable.

The UN must make reducing salt intake a global health priority, say UK scientists.
salt would be the most cost effective way to improve global health.
Writing in the British Medical Journal they say a 15% cut in consumption could save 8.5 million lives around the world over the next decade.
The researchers say there is a “consistent, direct relation between salt intake and blood pressure”. High blood pressure in turn is linked to heart disease, stroke and kidney problems.
The report says practical steps to reduce consumption should be drawn up without delay. If voluntary measures do not work, the food industry should be compelled to cut salt levels, it says. The report - by researchers at the Universities of Warwick and Liverpool - says that after cutting tobacco consumption, getting people to eat less
They point to the US, where cutting salt intake by a third would save tens of thousands of lives and save up to $24 billion annually in health care costs. But with 70% of deaths from strokes and heart attacks occurring in developing countries, the report says the impact of reduced intake would be global.
