Conference delegates screened for Carbon Dependence

Delegates at the UK Public Health Association’s 17th Annual Public Health Forum in Brighton this week were offered screening for the life-threatening Carbon Dependence Syndrome by a team of doctors and medical students.

Delegates completed the CAGE addiction screening questionnaire, and were warned of the possible complications of the syndrome. Many were found to be already suffering from complications such as mental distress and overweight, and were reassured to know that treatment is available.

The controversial flatus analysis, trialled at the event, again proved unpopular.
