- Ultra-processed kids snack, ‘Lunchables’, could soon be seen in US school canteens after Kraft Heinz reformulated the product to meet federal nutritional guidelines as part of the National School Lunch Program. Making such ‘foods’ readily available will do nothing to control surging rates of childhood obesity in the US and will create further negative impact to childrens' health.

- The EAT Lancet Planetary Diet caused major waves when it was first published in 2019 due to its slashing of animal product consumption. A new paper, led by the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) published in The Lancet Planetary Health, criticises the Planetary Diet for its lack of essential nutrients due to the low levels of animal-based foods, which generally have higher quantities of certain nutrients that are more bioavailable. Rather than turning to supplementation the researchers recommend eating a diet high in minimally processed, nutrient-dense whole foods including a modest increase in animal proteins.

- The UK Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (DEFRA) is considering an application by Rothamsted Research to conduct field trials of GM Camelina plants containing human and animal genes. There are significant ethical issues attached to the proposal along with potential harms to insects that may feed from the plants. DEFRA is currently inviting comments on the proposals. GM Freeze has more details and suggestions on how to respond to the DEFRA consultation, which closes on the 17th April.
- The World Health Organization (WHO) has published new training standards for Anthroposophic Medicine, a century-old system of medicine developed by Rudolf Steiner which is focused on health creation (salutogensis) rather than disease-management. Anthroposophic medicine takes account of the whole person, mind, body and spirit in equal proportion.

- ANH-USA is calling for grassroots support to help it protect homeopathy in the US after the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) published a new policy that would allow it to remove homeopathic medicines from the market at will.

- A Freedom of Information request to the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), elicited a document from 2021 evaluating Pfizer covid shots. The information revealed in the document shows just how much governments and their associated agencies knew about potential issues associated with the shots prior to their emergency use authorisation. UK-based nurse practitioner, PhD and educator, Dr John Campbell, takes viewers through key points in the document in his inimitable style, exposing the extent to which people have been hoodwinked over the supposed efficacy and safety of C-19 jabs

- Arkmedic addresses ongoing concerns over miscarriage rates following covid shots.

Peter Todd of Scott-Moncrieff & Associates has plenty of experience with pandemic jab lawsuits having acted for people harmed by swine flu vaccines in 2009/10. Even though the claim is against AstraZeneca, any compensation awarded will be paid by the UK government due to the legal indemnity given to the company when its covid shot was approved
- Class Action Covid UK (CACUK) is inviting people who’ve been harmed by covid jabs in England and Wales to contact them to be part of a test case, in order to establish legal rights or principles after being given a green light to proceed to court by a barrister who assessed its case

Amongst those who said someone close to them died due to covid, 54% also believed a member of their family died due to covid shots
- That studies supporting fantastical claims of covid jab effectiveness suffer from inherent flaws is well established by many in the science world who’ve been blocked from publishing their findings. A new peer-reviewed paper, co-authored by Peter Doshi PhD, published in the Journal of Evaluation in Clinical Practice, highlights such issues as it discusses the way data has been manipulated to overstate jab effectiveness
