A food technology student threw himself under the wheels of a passenger train after an extreme diet he found on the internet caused his health to deteriorate.

Will Mathews, 22, ate only vegetables and fruit after becoming ‘fixated’ with recipes free from carbohydrates and protein he downloaded from a US website. 

The Manchester Metropolitan University student, a former pescatarian, began taking health supplements to compensate but he became convinced he had issues with his bones and he started to lose his hair.

His mental state deteriorated amid fears he was struggling with his degree.

Mr Mathews, from Stockport, Greater Manchester, stepped into a path of the Birmingham to Manchester train as it was travelling through Levenshulme on October 8 2017.

He suffered multiple injuries and died at the scene.

An inquest was told Mr Mathews had enjoyed his food as a youngster but his health deteriorated after he enrolled at university.

His father Christopher Mathews told the Manchester inquest: ‘He was clearly struggling with his studies but it was the way he was constantly referring to the problems with his physical illness and his diet.

‘You could see he wasn’t looking after himself and was dropping out of the university system. He was always following a very strict diet eating only vegetables and fruit and he had been following this for some time, it started in December 2016.

‘He had this fixation with this diet and it got worse and worse and eventually he was taking supplements and all sorts of things. It appeared this diet was more from the internet and social media and was taking information from American websites.

‘I did ask him where he got all this from, he was quite assertive that he believed this information to be true, but it was from oddball websites and books.

‘We were very, very concerned about his well being, not so much his mood, more his irrational behaviour, he was sleeping until the afternoon, and when he was talking it was nonsensical.

‘He believed he had physical problems with his bones and this culminated in a meeting with his GP. The main thing was the diet. I requested a meeting to see if any counselling could be offered but it wasn’t available.

‘I funded private counselling and he attended three sessions, but he wasn’t responding to that and it was stopped. 

‘On 29th September 2017 he was admitted to hospital and I met him for lunch and he looked like he had gone insane.

‘He was completely out of reality, he was in his own little bubble. He was completely exhausted he couldn’t focus. He kept saying on many occasions he was going die and that his disease was consuming him physical and mentally. 

‘He did say to me occasionally “I have just had enough, I want to end things”, but these were fleeting comments, he didn’t say how or when.’

Mr Mathews’ mother Sylvia Duncan, a nurse said: ‘He was always a very friendly little boy and when he was growing up he really enjoyed his food, and there was one point when I was going to London to see my sister and brother in law when he declared he was going pescatarian.

‘He once told me “I want to make sure everybody’s healthy and I want to open my own enterprise, I want everybody to know about healthy eating”. He was never a fussy eater, he ate everything and enjoyed cooking.

‘He started the pescatarian diet where he cut out just meat, then he started to cut out certain types of food including carbohydrates and protein. He kept saying: “I don’t need protein I have been told I don’t need it”.

‘I noticed he was losing weight, he was having to eat more frequently as he wasn’t taking in anything of substance. He was coming up with arguments from people he met online and he was eating just greens and fruit which he mashed it up.

‘As I am a nurse I understand nutrition but he was telling me people who had written books which he purchased told him to get better you had to deteriorate a little bit first.

‘I tried to say that it doesn’t make any sense but he was adamant that they knew what they were talking about. 

‘I think this diet was linked to his knowledge of food. But I think he accessed the wrong information from Google which sent him in the wrong direction.

‘I remember him coming home and showing me his knees and he said there was something wrong and I said it was because of his weight loss because of the diet he had been following.

‘He started to suffer with anxiety and I remember he said he was losing a couple of his dreadlocks. He said he was looking it up online and he said it was because he was following this diet incorrectly.

‘I said it was because of the diet but he said he had spoken to some woman in America and she told him it was because he wasn’t following this diet correctly. He said he was worried if he didn’t get back on track something was going to happen.

‘His GP referred him to the early intervention team and prescribed anti anxiety medication and sleep medication.’

The inquest heard Mr Mathews was admitted to the Norbury Ward at Stepping Hill Hospital in September 2017 after further concerns about his mental condition. 

He died after buying supplements from a Holland and Barrrett store during a period of leave.

Leanne Callan of British Transport Police said: ‘Officers attended the ward at Stepping Hill and recovered a laptop and sent it to the high tech crime unit in London. I am aware the family did have concerns regarding access to websites and the dark web and things like that.

‘The interrogation unit were asked to check if William had been accessing any dark web material but there was no such usage of the dark web.

‘They were able to access a number of word documents. There were three documents of interest, one called “final note”, one called “suicide note” and a third called “the way”. All were created on various dates in September, the last document was “the way”, which was modified on 04/10 at 9.23am. 

‘These were the three documents which were deemed to be critical in the investigation.

‘From the evidence on the CCTV and the train driver’s statement, we believe that William deliberately entered the tracks on his own, there was no third party involvement, and deliberately placed himself in front of the train.’

New ‘cyber college’ to train airmen on cyber challenges

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Airmen may soon take cybersecurity classes as part of a new school designed to bring the Air Force’s digital abilities to the cutting edge. “Ultimately, when we’re fully capable, every airmen will have access to content on cyber education that makes them aware of the world around them and their goal of being problem solvers,” said Lt. Gen. Steven Kwast, who’s heading up the endeavor. On June 2, Kwast, commander of Air University at Maxwell Air Force Base in Alabama, made public the plans to create a “cyber college” to expand the education and training available to airmen. A few days later, the federal government announced it was the victim of one of the largest data breaches in history, with hackers getting personal information on millions of Americans. “It just reinforces the fact that we as a society, and really we as a world, have grown dependent on cyber,” Kwast told Air Force Times. “Those dependencies can create vulnerabilities that we have to be able to defend against.” Kwast hopes the new cyber college will help lead the Air Force’s answer to that growing cyber threat. “The purpose of Air University is to help educate airmen for the defense of this nation,” […]

Japan to train thousands on cyber-security ahead of 2020 Olympics

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

According to local newspaper Nikkei, Japan’s Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications has put forward a set of cyber-security proposals in relations to the Games, and intends to request around 20 billion yen (£103 million) in government funding over the four years, starting from fiscal 2016. This funding will go towards training for local authorities, schools, SMEs and enterprises, with the ministry also overseeing drills to prepare for attacks linked to the Games, such as websites being hacked and ticket sale scams. There are also reportedly plans for red teaming exercises. The ministry, which did not respond to our request for comment, aims to create industry-wide forums so companies can share best practices and other knowledge in the realm of cyber-security in the run-up to the Olympics. One security expert, who played a key and senior role in securing the 2012 London Olympics, told SCMagazineUK.com that the games is probably being used ‘as a vehicle’ to reduce the much-publicised information security skills gap. The Nikkei report cites one study which claims that 160,000 of the 265,000 infosec personnel in the country lack the skills need for the job. “My reading of this is that it must be broader than just the […]
