Today’s strikes promise to be the most disruptive yet, as teachers join walkouts by hundreds of thousands of other public sector workers. Officials fear that striking teachers will still be paid, despite unions forcing the closure of classrooms at most schools.
Typical British diet is fuelling the risk of cancer
A major study has suggested that foods which make up half of the typical British diet are fuelling the risk of cancer. Scientists said common daily fare – including most breakfast cereals, breads, snacks and convenience meals – appears to be endangering the nation’s health. Our health editor Laura Donnelly writes that a number of studies have previously linked “ultra-processed” foods, which are mass produced, containing chemicals, colourings, sweeteners and preservatives, to cancer. But researchers said the latest study by Imperial College London is the most comprehensive yet, involving almost 200,000 people aged between 40 and 69 who were tracked for over a decade, against the risks of 34 types of cancer. They said the findings were particularly concerning because of the “exceptionally high” intake of processed foods in the British diet – making up around half of daily calories.
A joint effort of several authors who do find that nobody can keep standing at the side and that “Everyone" must care about what is going on in today’s world.
We are a bunch of people who do not mind that somebody has a totally different idea but is willing to share the ideas with others and to be Active and willing to let others understand how "today’s decisions will influence the future”. Therefore we would love to see many others to "Act today".
