How to build strong bones if you don’t eat meat

If you are thinking of switching to a plant-based diet for the sake of your health, it might not be as simple as you’d hoped. A new study has found that women on a vegetarian diet are more likely to fracture their hips. Researchers from the University of Leeds looked at 26,318 women between the ages of 35 and 69 years and found that, by a third, vegetarians had a greater risk of hip fracture than meat-eaters and pescatarians. The findings are the latest to support numerous studies suggesting th

"Nothing is the same": Ukrainians watch war unfold from London –

When Marjana Miklos woke up in her home in London to discover that Vladimir Putin had launched a full-scale invasion of her home country, her main feeling, like so many other Ukrainians watching events unfold overseas, was shock. Russia’s invasion, under Putin’s guise of a ‘special military operation’ begun on February 24 2022. Miklos, a receptionist who has been settled in the UK for six years, said she did not know what to do other than to start calling her other Ukrainian friends in London.

How deepfakes and altered image abuse are a digital threat for women

Ten years ago, when 18-year-old Australian law student Noelle Martin reverse image searched herself out of pure curiosity, nothing could have prepared her for the nauseating results that Google would empty before her. Scores of pornographic images of her stretched on the screen before her, images she had never consented to being shared online. In fact, she had never consented to them being taken at all. Because they hadn’t been taken: they had been faked. Anonymous individual(s) had stolen Mart

Bleak Picture" Painted By Violence Against Women Snapshot Report

The End Violence Against Women coalition (EVAW) has released a report on violence against women and girls in the UK for 2021-22, with its director describing the data as “bleak”. The report includes outlining the number of women killed in cases where a man is the primary suspect, and figures on domestic abuse crimes recorded by the police. Data from Refuge was included, which suggested that nearly a fifth of women in the UK experienced image-based sexual abuse from 2021-2022, with additional d

Music for Mental Health: Local artists perform in Kingston in aid of Mind charity –

Local charity Mind in Kingston hosted a music stall on Sunday at Kingston Ancient Market Place, part of a fortnight of events to mark World Mental Health Day 2021. New Malden singer-songwriter Beth Jakob performed at the stall. Jakob has previously fundraised for Mind, having co-founded Emfest, an events company that hosts live music to raise money for the charity. The 2021 event, held at The Royal Oak, New Malden, raised over £14,000 for Mind in Kingston. “We started EmFest around six years a

COMMENT: Walk me home service risks taking women two steps back –

BT boss Philip Jansen has made a £50m proposal to tackle women’s safety. Praised by Home Secretary Priti Patel, ‘Walk me home’ would track the user’s whereabouts via an app, and alert a designated contact if they do not meet their destination on time. This service could be set up by Christmas. For a high price, Jansen will achieve nothing but to walk women back to outdated sexist values. Since former Metropolitan police officer Wayne Couzens abused his position as a police officer to abduct, ra
