It was only a matter of time before that immediately-iconic Love Island catchphrase ‘Relax Bello’ cemented itself into Maltese meme lore… and James Ryder has made sure of it, tattooing it on his chest for all to see.

“Let’s do this”, the local comedian & TikToker posted alongside a bare-chested photo of himself with a newly-etched butterfly tat atop the iconic ‘Relax Bello’.

We’re sure that local Islander Dale would be happy to find out that his episode one phrase found itself on one of the show’s fan’s chest and whether he finds out anytime soon or not, we’re sure it won’t be the last hilarious remark from the show.

WHO issues warning against artificial sweeteners

WHO issues warning against artificial sweeteners
May 16 2023 Share

The World Health Organisation has just released a warning against artificial sweeteners, which many use to replace sugar in their cup of tea or various other products. 

New guidelines have just been released by the United Nation’s health agency, advising against the use of the non-sugar sweeteners, also referred to as NSS. 

No long term benefit in reducing body fat in adults or children was conferred in the use of NSS, with other suggestions of potential undesirable effects such as increased risk of type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and mortality in adults. 

The sweeteners have long been at the centre of controversy, and the latest research surrounding them suggest that there is no benefits when it comes to weight control.

In a statement, director for nutrition and food safety Francesco Branca said that people need to find other ways to reduce free sugar intake. This could be done by eating foods with naturally occurring sugars like fruit, or unsweetened food and beverages. 

People should reduce the sweetness of their diet altogether, starting early in life, the director said.
