Gagging Nanny...

Well, it looks like at least one good deed is being done by the coalition:
The ‘nannying’ health advice dished out by the NHS rationing body is being dramatically scaled back by ministers.
The Government has asked the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence to stop working on guidance on six public health topics and ‘to put on hold’ work on a further 13.
Fantastic news!

And the vital health advice they were preparing to dish out was..?
Guidance from NICE that is still in the pipeline covering smoking, obesity, contraception and road safety is being axed or left in limbo amid questions about whether it constitutes value for money.
Road safety...?!?
