An Australian-first study by Cancer Council NSW has revealed that kilojoule content in foods from some of Australia’s top fast food chains have remained the same since menu labelling became compulsory in 2012, despite rising obesity rates. 

The George Institute for Global Health proudly supports a new report, “Kidney Disease in Women: A Call to Action,” calling for targeted gender specific treatment and interventions.
