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."

Nearly a QUARTER of Generation Z identifies with a non-binary pronoun

This statistic was so shocking that it became a main topic for today's Daily Download podcast.

Altogether, nearly half (45%) of those surveyed expressed support for in...
