Obesity cancer risk warning
About a third of UK adults are obese. And now the charity Cancer Research UK is warning that cases of four of the most common forms of cancer - bowel, kidney, ovarian and liver - are more likely to be caused by being overweight than smoking.
It has launched a billboard campaign, in which it shows mocked-up cigarette packets displaying the message "Obesity is a cause of cancer too". But the charity has been criticised for fat-shaming.
So is this the right approach, or is it wrong - and even damaging - to be so blunt about the risks of obesity?

'My mother died without telling me I had HIV'
Story by Sheila Kimani
Some parents in Kenya take the secret of their HIV status to their graves, leaving their children ignorant and unwell.
Brian Omondi, who was born with HIV, started taking anti-retroviral (ARV) pills when he was 10. However, it was not until he was 14 when his mother had died that he realised what the pills were for.
Now 22 and an HIV activist working with a church group, he says his condition was not picked up at birth. It was when he went to live with his aunt, after his mother died, that neighbours in the close-knit community got wind of his HIV status and his peers began mocking him.
What the papers say
The BBC's publication of stars' salaries provokes a strong reaction in several newspapers. The Daily Mail calls the figures a "kick in the teeth" for over-75s who are to lose their free TV licences, while the Daily Mirror says a "loophole" is being used to conceal "millions" made by those working for independent production companies creating BBC programmes. Meanwhile, the Daily Telegraph describes England's loss to the USA in the Women's World Cup semi-final as "cruel", with Metro calling the Lionesses the "pride of England".
