Foreign assisted suicide cases in Switzerland double in 4 years

ZURICH (Reuters) - The number of foreigners travelling to Switzerland to commit assisted suicide doubled over a four-year period, a study published in the Journal of Medical Ethics said on Thursday. In 2012, 172 foreigners took their lives in Switzerland, which has liberal euthanasia rules, up from 86 in 2009, with citizens from Germany and Britain making up almost two-thirds of the total, the study found. Assisted suicide has been legal in Switzerland since the 1940s, if performed by someone with no direct interest in the death #facebook #Business #Japan #Technology #Russia #Italy #Argentina #United Kingdom #Latin America #Mexico #journal

Experimental Ebola drugs needed for "up to 30,000 people"

LONDON (Reuters) - Up to 30,000 people could have used experimental treatments or vaccines so far in the world's worst outbreak of Ebola currently plaguing West Africa, British scientists said on Wednesday. The calculation highlights the dilemma facing officials considering how to distribute the tiny quantities of unproven drugs that are likely to be available in the near term to fight the deadly disease. The World Health Organisation (WHO) is hoping for improved supplies of experimental treatments and progress with a vaccine by the end of the year, after last week backing the use of untested drugs and vaccines. #Politics #United States #India #Business #Japan #Technology #Arabic #Russia #United Kingdom #Mexico #university
