Why Finland plans to double its foreign workforce | Welcome to the Jungle

"Faced with a population crisis, Finland is pulling out all the stops to entice expats with the objective of doubling the number of foreign workers by 2030 … The Finnish population is on track to start declining by 2034. The country has seen less than 50,000 births a year for four years in a row, and according to a report by Statisca Finland, 'The forecast indicates that despite a projected increase in overall life expectancy, the working age population (aged 15 to 64) — which currently makes up 62 percent of Finland's total population — will decrease to 60 percent by 2040 and 57 percent by 2060.'"

Beyond Ozempic: brand-new obesity drugs will be cheaper and more effective | Nature

"Two new drugs for treating obesity are on course to become available in the next few years — and they offer advantages beyond those of the highly effective blockbuster drugs already on the market. The first, called orforglipron, is easier to use and to produce, and it will probably be cheaper than existing treatments. The second, retatrutide, has an unprecedented level of efficacy, and could raise the bar for pharmacological obesity treatment."

Can your dog live longer? | Woof News

"We are simply looking at treating age-related diseases as a broad, preventative, category, rather than approaching diseases one by one after they have manifested themselves. Deteriorating metabolism leads to age-related metabolic disease and dysfunction. Kidney disease. Diseases of the muscle like sarcopenia. Diabetes and obesity. As dogs age rapidly, you can observe these changes, and target metabolic aging pathways to prevent all of these and more."
