Re: Assessing the health effects of a “no deal” Brexit

An interesting article but I would be interested in knowing whether there are any potential health effects of not leaving the EU at this point. Given that the majority of Britons voted to leave in 2016 in the belief that this result would be honoured by the government, will there be any future detrimental health impact from this apparent loss of democratic agency suffered by seventeen million of our fellow citizens and residents if we do not leave the EU?
