The latest edition of EXIT Newsletter goes in the post to members this week, a bumper edition at 36 pages.
Among the leading articles are Causation and Euthanasia – an expert legal analysis of how the law works in determining culpability in end-of-life cases. There’s also an analysis of sleeping tablets, particularly the relative characteristics of two seemingly similar ones (zolpidem and temazepam) and the different ways they affect sleep architecture – the depth of sleep and length of deep sleep periods. Plus a quick guide to assisted suicide at Dignitas and a host of analytical articles of interest to persons who take control of their own lives up to and including the dying days.
