In August 2014, The Lancet – perhaps the world’s best-known medical journal – had published “An Open Letter for the People of Gaza,” criticizing Israel in the wake of the 2014 Gaza conflict.Richard Horton, the editor-in-chief of the journal since 1995, had taken a lot of heat, with Sir Mark Pepys, ex-Head of Medicine at University College London saying, “Horton’s behaviour in this case is consistent with his longstanding and wholly inappropriate use of The Lancet as a vehicle for his own extreme political views.Close It has greatly detracted from the former high standing of the journal.” Richard Horton had responded then with a telling rebuttal: “How can you separate politics and health? The two go hand-in-hand.” Horton, it appears, truly stands by that line, as he has inserted his fingers into the most bountiful political pie of all – the Indian General Elections. related news Simply Save podcast | It’s time for an annual evaluation of your portfolio Taking Stock: SBI, Yes Bank biggest losers in banking space; Nifty holds 11,850 On the Ball podcast | EPL Gameweek 16 Highlights: United dent City’s title hope, Everton shock Chelsea, Liverpool remain undefeated In an editorial Comment on the Lancet, published… Read full this story
