Phnom Penh, March 04, 2024 --United Kingdom (UK) Minister for the Indo-Pacific, Rt Hon. Anne-Marie Trevelyan, has been visiting Cambodia from Mar. 2-4 to strengthen cooperation on trade, economic development and education.According to a press release of the British Embassy in Cambodia issued on Mar. 3, during the visit, Minister Trevelyan will meet Cambodian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Economy and Finance H.E. Aun Pornmoniroth to discuss how the UK is supporting sustainable development in Cambodia, including green infrastructure.Trade and investment between the UK and Cambodia continue to develop, boosted by initiatives including the Developing Countries’ Trading Scheme, with annual two-way trade worth over £1 billion. Cambodia is also a priority country for the UK’s British Investment Partnerships programme, which encourages private sector investment into high-quality, sustainable infrastructure projects to support development.“I'm delighted to be paying my first visit to Cambodia, a country with an incredible ancient history and which has overcome more recent hardships to become one of the fastest-growing economies in ASEAN,” Rt Hon. Anne-Marie Trevelyan said ahead of the visit. “The UK-Cambodia bilateral relationship is growing across various sectors and we are committed to supporting the country on the next stage of its development journey. I'm looking forward to hearing more about how our British Investment Partnerships work is delivering for Cambodia and the role of UK education in developing talent here.”British Ambassador to Cambodia H.E. Dominic Williams MBE expressed his enthusiasm to welcome the UK Minister of State for Indo Pacific, Rt Hon. Anne-Marie Trevelyan MP, to Cambodia - the UK’s first Ministerial visitor since Prime Minister Samdech Thipadei Manet’s government took office last August. The visit is a visible demonstration of our desire to deepen cooperation with Cambodia.“The UK is committed to supporting job-creating economic growth in Cambodia, through sustainable investment, development initiatives and trade. The visit will also be an opportunity for open discussion on key national and international issues. I’m pleased that the Minister will be able to hear from a range of Cambodians about the future,” he said.While in Phnom Penh, the Minister will visit the new sister campus of Leicester-based De Montfort University, the first UK university to open a site in Cambodia. The Minister will hear from university staff and other education providers ahead of the campus welcoming its first cohort of students later in 2024.Improving access to education for Cambodians, in particular women and girls, is a longstanding priority in the UK-Cambodia relationship. In addition to existing programmes, in 2023 the UK committed £30 million to increase access to education for women and girls across Southeast Asia. The funding will support around 100,000 women and girls, including through scholarships and additional classes, as well as teacher training to improve the quality of lessons.Signalling the UK’s respect for Cambodia’s rich history, the Minister will also visit the National Museum of Cambodia to see artifacts recently returned to Cambodia from the UK as well as the opportunity to listen to civil society organisations and their important work on good governance, transparency, protection, and empowerment of women in the country.

Phnom Penh, December 05, 2023 --The United States Agency for International Development (USAID)/Cambodia has announced the award of a new, five-year, US$24 million environment project supporting efforts that preserve biodiversity, protect critical ecosystems, and enhance community livelihoods in Cambodia.According to a USAID’s press release dated Dec. 4, this new project, USAID Conserve, will expand USAID’s support to communities living in and around protected areas in the provinces of Preah Vihear, Kampong Thom, Stung Treng, and Kratie, while also undertaking new initiatives for communities living around Tonle Sap Lake and along the coastal areas of Koh Kong and Preah Sihanouk.USAID Conserve will build upon USAID’s efforts to provide direct funding to community-based organisations through an US$8 million grant facility, which will provide at least 250 direct grants to Cambodian organisations. USAID will expand its long history of supporting successful forest carbon financing projects through support for the Kingdom’s efforts to develop blue carbon projects in Cambodia’s flooded forests and coastal areas. USAID Conserve will also develop social and behaviour change communications campaigns at the national, provincial, district, and commune levels focused on combating the illegal trade in wildlife.“USAID Conserve reflects our commitment to localisation of our development assistance,” stated USAID Mission Director Kerry Pelzman. “Through this activity, we will support community-driven efforts to develop local employment based on the sustainable use of natural resources and leverage private capital to invest in long-term solutions to the climate crisis. Under this approach, USAID Conserve will provide support to the commitment of the Royal Government of Cambodia to achieve carbon neutral status by 2050.”USAID Conserve will be led by Tetra Tech ARD and implemented by a consortium of partners, including the Wildlife Conservation Society and Conservation International.

Drinking too much coffee 'could shrink women's breasts'

date_range 21-Feb-2024
visibility 11

According to the Daily Mail, women's breasts shrink when they consume three cups of coffee a day. It stated that after asking nearly 300 women about their coffee consumption, researchers assessed each woman's bust size. "Three cups was enough to make breasts shrink," according to the study, and the effect was stronger with each cup. Because around half of all women carry a gene that correlates coffee consumption with breast size, the newspaper said that there is "a clear link between drinking coffee and smaller breasts."Previous study has discovered that the risk of breast cancer may be influenced by a certain oestrogen balance in the body, which appears to be connected with breast volume. This is controlled by a gene that codes (instructs) an enzyme involved in the metabolism of both estrogen and caffeine. The current study investigated whether coffee consumption is connected with breast volume, and how this is influenced by a woman's CYP1A2*1F genotype. Although the study found a correlation between these characteristics in women who did not use oral contraception, the media oversimplified the findings, and the study has little current implications. According to the publication, there is "a clear link between drinking coffee and smaller breasts" because almost half of all women carry a gene that relates breast size to coffee use.What was the source of the story? This study was conducted in Sweden by Dr. Helena Jernström and associates from Lund University and Malmo University. Several Swedish foundations as well as The Swedish Research Council provided funding for the study. The research was released in the British Journal of Cancer, a peer-reviewed medical journal.Which type of scientific investigation was this? In order to determine if coffee consumption was related to breast volume and how the A/A genotype of the CYP1A2*1F gene affected this, the investigators conducted a cross-sectional study. This gene produces the CYP1A2 enzyme, which is involved in the metabolism of estrogen and coffee. It has previously been demonstrated that high-caffeine A/A genotype women had a larger ratio of certain oestrogens, which may provide some protection against breast cancer.The researchers recruited 269 Swedish volunteers (average age 29) who filled out a questionnaire about reproductive issues, contraception use, smoking, coffee consumption (big 300ml cups or tiny 150ml cups), and other topics (not covered in this article). Body measurements were recorded at specific intervals during the menstrual cycle. The women's breast volume was measured by asking them to kneel with their breasts hanging down. The approximate volume was then calculated using a simple formula (base x height divided by three). The CYP1A21F gene, as well as oestrogen and other hormonal factor levels, were analyzed in a laboratory. In their statistical studies, the researchers looked for any links between the CYP1A21F genotype (whether A/A or not) and consuming three or more cups per day.What were the outcomes of the study? The CYP1A21F A/A genotype was present in 51% of the women. There was no difference in coffee intake or any other personal, social, or lifestyle trait between women with the CYP1A21F A/A genotype and those without. Coffee drinking was significantly linked to smoking. Total breast volume was substantially linked with weight, but not with age, hormonal contraceptive use, childlessness, smoking, or the CYP1A2*1F genotype.In subsequent analyses, the researchers focused primarily on women who did not use hormonal contraception (such as the pill). Among the 145 non-users, the CYP1A2*1F genotype significantly altered the relationship between drinking at least three cups of coffee per day and breast volume. Women who did not have the A/A genotype and drank three cups or more per day had smaller breast volumes than those who drank less coffee. Women with the A/A genotype who drank three cups or more per day had slightly higher breast capacity than those who drank less coffee.What conclusions did the researchers make from their findings? The authors conclude with the major conclusion of "a significant interaction between coffee consumption, CYP1A21F genotype, and breast volume among young healthy women who did not use hormonal contraception." According to the researchers, this interaction was primarily driven by the fact that drinking three cups of coffee or more per day was associated with reduced breast volume in women who did not have the CYP1A21F A/A genotype.What is the NHS Knowledge Service's assessment of this study?This is a sophisticated study that builds on previous research into the relationship between CYP1A2*1F genotypes, breast volume, and breast cancer. The media has oversimplified the research, and the findings have limited present relevance. The cross-sectional study design simply shows relationships; it does not prove that coffee drinking 'caused' the breast volume measured at the time of the study or caused the breasts to'shrink'. Furthermore, there may be concerns with both the accuracy of the breast measurement and coffee consumption (which are not included in this research). The observed relationship is based on an examination of only 145 women, and additional research will be required to confirm the findings.Many women will have consumed coffee for most of their lives. These women need not be concerned about their breast size if they continue to consume moderately.

Phnom Penh, January 12, 2024 --The Ministry of Environment has flagged an alarming decline in air quality in Phnom Penh and the provinces of Cambodia.Based on the ministry's air quality monitoring, the decline in air quality was mainly due to an increase in inert particles floating in the air (PM10 and PM2.5), surpassing the standard and posing risks to human health and the environment.Activities contributing to the decline include emissions from industrial vehicles, plastic waste dumping and incineration, and dust generated from construction sites.Forest fires, burning of grass and agricultural waste, open solid waste burning, and landfill fires are also the main contributors, it added.To address this issue, the Ministry of Environment has requested that the 25 capital-provincial governors promote the implementation of the government circular on measures to prevent and reduce public air pollution.Public awareness building and measures to prevent waste, forest, and plastic burning also need to be taken.

Anne-Marie Trevelyan MP, to Cambodia - the UK’s first Ministerial visitor since Prime Minister Samdech Thipadei Manet’s government took office last August. The visit is a visible demonstration of our desire to deepen cooperation with Cambodia.“The UK is committed to supporting job-creating economic growth in Cambodia, through sustainable investment, development initiatives and trade. The visit will also be an opportunity for open discussion on key national and international issues. I’m pleased that the Minister will be able to hear from a range of Cambodians about the future,” he said.While in Phnom Penh, the Minister will visit the new sister campus of Leicester-based De Montfort University, the first UK university to open a site in Cambodia. The Minister will hear from university staff and other education providers ahead of the campus welcoming its first cohort of students later in 2024.Improving access to education for Cambodians, in particular women and girls, is a longstanding priority in the UK-Cambodia relationship. In addition to existing programmes, in 2023 the UK committed £30 million to increase access to education for women and girls across Southeast Asia. The funding will support around 100,000 women and girls, including through scholarships and additional classes, as well as teacher training to improve the quality of lessons.Signalling the UK’s respect for Cambodia’s rich history, the Minister will also visit the National Museum of Cambodia to see artifacts recently returned to Cambodia from the UK as well as the opportunity to listen to civil society organisations and their important work on good governance, transparency, protection, and empowerment of women in the country.
