I know it says it's a valid RSS feed, but I'm very curious as to why I'm getting these errors.

line 89, column 0: Non-html tag: guid (5 occurrences) [help]

          <guid>http://www.diabetes.co.uk/news/2016/sep/letting-your-diet-slip-l ...

line 93, column 0: description should not contain title tag [help]

I can't see anything wrong with the tags they are referencing.  Thanks.

The validator is complaining about the element "<guid>" which is not a valid HTML element.  If you were to remove that item, it would render.  The <guid> element is preventing the previous closing tag of the description from being properly seen and causing the all of the validation issues.

There is a missing bracket on line 86 in the CDATA field.

<description><![CDATA[Letting your diet slip linked with 34 per cent increased risk of type 2 diabetes.]></description>


That should be:

<description><![CDATA[Letting your diet slip linked with 34 per cent increased risk of type 2 diabetes.]]></description>

Thanks, Dan! I thought it might be something like that, but I couldn't find it. :)
