The Papers: Processed food cancer risk and Corbyn ‘Commie’ encounter

Latest news

    Image caption Several papers, including the Daily Mail, lead with research that eating processed food could significantly increase a person’s risk of cancer. The study, in the British Medical Journal, says products such as sugary cereals and fizzy drinks put middle-aged women in particular danger from breast cancer.
    Image caption The dangers of pizza, cornflakes and chocolate bars in raising a person’s risk of cancer also features prominently on the front page of the Times. The paper reports French researchers said in a sample group of people who developed cancer, the quarter who ate the most “ultra-processed” food were 23% more likely to get any type of cancer than the quarter which ate the least processed foods.
    Image caption The Daily Express is another that leads on the risks of processed foods, but the issue of Brexit is never too far away – so there’s also a front page picture of Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson with the headline “Boris warns stopping Brexit will be a disastrous mistake”.
    Image caption The Daily Telegraph describes the collapse of power-sharing talks in Northern Ireland as a “political crisis” for the prime minister. which could “throw the Good Friday Agreement into jeopardy”.
    Image caption Staying with UK politics, the Sun claims on its front page that Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn met with a “communist spy” in 1986. In the paper, a Labour spokesman says Mr Corbyn met a Czech diplomat but never knowingly talked to a spy. Since then Labour has told the BBC any suggestion that Mr Corbyn was an informer for an intelligence agency is “entirely false and a ridiculous smear”.
    Image caption The Metro highlights the tragic story of a rough sleeper who died yards away from the Parliament on Wednesday, after a night of sub-zero temperatures. Jeremy Corbyn features again here, with his view that politicians cannot “carry on walking on by on the other side while people don’t have a home to call their own”.
    Image caption The Florida school shooting happened too late in the day for many of the newspapers’ early editions but the i does manage to get the news and a picture onto its front page with the rather telling headline “Another American high school shooting”.
    Image caption The Daily Mirror continues its campaign to change the law on organ donation, with another moving story uncovered by writer Andrew Gregory. The front page is taken up with a prominent picture of four-year-old girl Aoife and the accompanying text says the child smiling in the sunshine died waiting for an organ donation. In a front page message to its readers, the paper says: “Now we need your help to make sure our politicians listen”.
    Image caption And finally, “Ant and Dec in Quit Shock” thunders the front page headline in the Daily Star. But look closely and you’ll realise that the paper hasn’t uncovered the showbiz story of the year. It’s actually the star pair’s “little” namesakes who will not be featuring in the upcoming series of Saturday Night Takeaway.
