HAIR COLORING IMPROVES QUALITY OF LIFE

Hair coloring positively impacts Quality of Life, says a new scientific study. The role that the hair plays on both men and women’s identity has been evident throughout history, the hair – its style, color, abundance or luck thereof – representing often femininity, virility, freedom, beauty, as well as belonging to a specific religion and culture. While we all intuitively know about the link between our physical appearance and our well-being, very little research has been carried out in order to ascertain that relationship.

“Decision-making that saves lives” – a new article published by the ZILLION INTERNATIONAL about the flawed QALY approach revealed through the ECHOUTCOME Project

xx edition 2014

Ariel Beresniak, CEO of Data Mining International SA, warns of the perils of bad calculations in standards used in the health sector. One example is the Quality Adjusted Life Years index (QALY) used in the UK by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) which, according to a study they conducted, is flawed and should be discontinued. The company -with its broad experience in the health sector- helps companies assess their risks, prioritise and make better use of data.
