An investigation reveals that Doctors are unwittingly funding fast-food firms through membership of their regulator.

According to the MailOnline, the General Medical Council has investments totalling up to nearly £870,000 in food and soft drink companies, these include, Nestle, Mcdonald's, Coca-cola, PepsiCo, Starbucks, and a firm called "Unilever" which owns Magnum, Walls & Ben & Jerry's.

Doctors are charged by the regulator a one-off registration fee of £161 and then annual fees of an ongoing £420, this same regulator has also put £1.2 million investment in pharmaceutical firms since the year 2019.

"They would be horrified to know that their money is being invested in fast food companies that are the cause of so much disease and reduced quality and quantity of life and significantly more pressure on the NHS and workload of doctors." Said GP Sam Everington who is the chair of Tower Hamlets Clinical Commissioning Group. "This is no different to investing in tobacco companies." He added. It's important to note that almost two-thirds of Brits are overweight or obese, knowing now that doctors are unwittingly funding the fast food firms to keep everyone sick and unhealthy this is a real concern.

The investigation also found that more than £1.2 million had been invested into big pharmaceutical companies such as AstraZeneca, Roche, Novo Nordisk, & Merck with around £470,000 had been put into private insurance or healthcare providers called "Humana Health and UnitedHealth Group."

Martin Mckee who is a professor of European public health at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine explained, "Many doctors whose work involves dealing with the harms caused by junk food marketing would if they knew, despair at how their money is being invested."

How do I focus more? Increase your concentration with these tips on how to focus better

In today's fast-paced world, it's becoming increasingly difficult to stay focused and concentrate on the task at hand. Whether it's constant notifications from our devices or a never-ending list of distractions at work, we're all guilty of losing focus from time to time. If you're like most people, you probably find it difficult to focus on one task for an extended period. Whether you're working on a project at work or trying to get through a pile of homework, it can be tough to stay concentrated.

I wanted to talk about the importance of focus today, as it seems increasingly challenging to bring this laser like quality into your life. Or should I say, our lives? 

I am by no means a focus expert. Despite harbouring several certifications in lifestyle and mindset [life coaching, stress management and meditation in particular] I still grapple with remaining on task. I like to think of this as a blessed mixture of the power of possibility, a capable skill set with an open mind, and am thankful that my focus challenge is as a result of regularly refreshed attention-direction that can be regarded as ‘laudable’ as it is ‘distracting from current goals’. 

Here's an example. Five years ago I was living on the side of a mountain in Portugal, in a world peace commune. One Holotropic breathwork session resulted in the vivid visualisation of being surrounded by a series of young lads after a football coaching session. Immediately, I thought, I must return to the UK and become a certified FA coach! So flew back, after having in the meantime joined the Labour Party, applied to be a local councillor and booked a venue for an Edinburgh show all to occur within a two month period. While continuing to study holistic therapy. This meant that, on the way to my weekend of football coaching study, my mind was elsewhere as I was studying for a crystal healing exam. On the train to the Edinburgh Festival I was going over notes for a football coaching exam. Then, during the Edinburgh Festival I was sidetracked with personal poli...
