Quote of the Decade

Sir Martin Holgate, Chief Scientist at the Department of the Environment of the British Government - October 2004

The Health Issues are ignored by both the DECC and the Scottish Government but from Europe, the UK, Australia, Canada and the USA, evidence is being produced that raises serious issues. Much may centre around sleep deprivation of which our … Continue reading
