### Hello My Sweat Peas,

### Mathspig has written for newspapers for 30 years. Aaaaah! The maths is frightening. One reason for starting this blog is to show mathpiggies everywhere why we need maths.

### One area where we need maths concerns HEALTH STATISTICS. We make all sorts of decisions based on HEALTH STATISTICS.

### It is not just the NUMBERS we must understand, but also the LOGIC.

### Clear thinking. What do these numbers actually mean. Mathspig has even talked to HEALTH REASEARCHERS, who do not understand statistics. They use computer programs.

### So this week Mathspig is applying LOGIC to Health Statistics. She’s looking at the Health Statistics that Aren’t Good for Your Health.

### One Health Statistic of interest involves genes and disease. Angelina Jolie had her healthy breasts removed because of the statistics involving breast cancer. But genes are NOT THE FULL STORY.

### And Mathspig, who lervs pi, also loves chubby folk. The health statistics for fatties aren’t always as bad as some claim. See We’re All Gonna Die 2.

### To learn a little about Health Statistics and LOGIC read on Sweet Pea.

### Ciao

### Hellooooo My Sweeties,

### A serious topic this week, then again, maths is serious if it leads healthy women to have healthy breasts removed by surgeons because of statistics.

### …………………………………………………………..

### You’d want to understand those statistics, wouldn’t you? Read on and judge for yourself if Angelina Jolie’s decision was based on good maths.

### Cheerio for Now
