BBC News - Health atlas allows online search of risk by area

A new online map of England and Wales allows people to enter their postcode and find their
community's risk of developing 14 conditions, such as heart disease and
lung cancer. The map presents population-wide health information for England and Wales.

The researchers at Imperial College London pointed out that it could not be used to see an individual's risk.
It indicated an area's health risk, relative to the average for England and Wales, they stressed.
