He fumed: “I really appreciate it when brands or people value my work because here in my country, El Salvador, brands don’t support content creators.

“They prefer to pay a fortune to be on TV, even though we could probably give them better publicity… Most companies try to pay you with barter deals and are reluctant to invest in you, while they spend big money elsewhere, on radio and TV.

“But who watches TV or listens to the radio anymore? Everything is online now.”

Dangers of obesity

ACOORDING to the NHS, around one in everty four adults in UK are obese.

It is a serious health condition that is known for increasing the chances of other illnesses, including:

Type 2 diabetes
Heart diseases
Forms of cancer
Strokes

A major study found getting fat could be a factor in four out of 10 cancers.

Experts say obesity can now be linked to 32 types of tumour – 19 more than previously thought.

The “groundbreaking” research by Lund University in Sweden tracked 4.1million people for up to 45 years and analysed 332,501 cases of cancer.

It found up to 40 per cent of the cases were contributed to by the patient’s weight.

Excess flab was newly linked to more tumour types than the 13 officially recognised by the International Agency for Research on Cancer in 2016.

They included cancers in the mouth, throat, stomach and brain.

Study author Dr Ming Sun said: “Our findings suggest that the impact of obesity on cancer might be greater than previously known.

“It is a risk factor for more cancers, especially of rarer kinds, and some of these have never before been investigated in relation to obesity.

“Established obesity-related cancers accounted for 25 per cent of all cancer cases in this study, and the proportion increased to 40 per cent when potential obesity-related cancers were added. 

“A substantial proportion of cancers could potentially be prevented by keeping a normal weight.”
