Young euthanasia in UK is increasing, researchers say

Dr Ian Evans, a senior lecturer in the School of Veterinary Sciences at St Andrews, said: “As euthanasia rates conti보성출장마사지nue to fall, it is important to have accurate, national statistics and to be transparent.”

But he warned that the findings should not be seen as supporting euthanasia policies and that the actual rates were lower than previously reported.

The study used data from the Death in Family website, which provides data about UK family deaths, as well as a database of 로투스 홀짝data from 18,000 local authority death files.

It강릉안마 강릉출장마사지 found that in 2005 there were 535 deaths in England and Wales linked to self-harm, and 5,050 linked to self-injury.

But the study said there were more than four times as many deaths from suicide than from suicide.

‘Great sacrifice’

It said that while there was a “great sacrifice in deaths caused by suicide” each year there were “several times as many deaths from self-injury”.

The study also found that about 1,000 people a year died of undiagnosed illnesses that were treated in hospitals, including cancer.

That equated to two people a minute in England.

But Dr Evans, who is also a research associate at the University of Warwick, said: “There has to be some indication of whether these deaths will occur because of the type of diagnosis, treatment or procedure that was involved.”

The data was presented at the annual conference of the American Medical Association (AMA) in Las Vegas.

The UK Ministry of Justice (MoJ) has been contacted for comment.
