  • Governments are starting to turn their collective backs on organisations colluding to censor a range of organisations. The Global Disinformation Index (GDI) received funding to the tune of approximately £2.6 million from the UK government until it was cut off in 2023. Despite this, the organisation continues to interact at a high level with government officials as it promotes its services and dynamic exclusion list, which can wipe out the funding of smaller organisations. Media company Unherd was one of those targeted by the GDI and put on its ‘dynamic exclusion list’ although it has now been removed

  • Does omega-3 supplementation during pregnancy cause children to become overweight at age 10? According to a recent study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition it does.

  • Colon cancer rates in young people have risen dramatically in the past 20 years. According to (unpublished) research being presented at Digestive Disease Week 2024 on 20 May 2024, rates of colorectal cancer have increased 500% in children aged 10 to 15, 333% in teens aged 15 to 19 and 185% among young adults aged 20 to 24 between 1999 to 2000
  • Another nail in the ultra-processed coffin? Eating more ultra-processed food (like hot dogs — industrially built, with a bunch of ingredients one might not immediately identify as “food”) is associated with higher rates of death, according to a study published The BMJ. Researchers analysed data from over 100,000 healthcare workers across the US and found that people who ate the most ultra-processed food had a 4% higher mortality rate than those eating the least amount. Their rate of dying from causes, other than cancer or cardiovascular disease, was 9% higher.

  • The UK-based ZOE team has published a study in Nature Medicine assessing the effectiveness of its personalised nutrition programme. As expected it concludes that ZOE is extremely effective. However, the intervention group received a high level of interventions to help them make the necessary changes, while the control group received limited input.

  • The American Diabetes Association has quietly settled a lawsuit brought by ex-ADA chief nutritionist, Elizabeth Hanna, who was fired after she refused to endorse Splenda filled salads.

  • Regular aerobic exercise that makes you ‘huff and puff’ not only boosts cardio fitness but leads to a 17% reduction in the risk of premature death. A new analysis of 26 systematic reviews, published in The BMJ, reminds us that cardiorespiratory fitness is the most important type of fitness for good health. Another study published in BMJ Public Health recently, found that people who walked at least once a week, rather than using a car, live longer than those that did not.
