Did You Know: Jet Lag Can Affect More Than Just Your Sleep Cycle

Did You Know: Jet Lag Can Affect More Than Just Your Sleep Cycle

Jet lag can put the brakes on the most exciting vacations. Almost everyone who has ever flown across time zones knows what it feels like. The experience ranks somewhere between eating day-old cooked oatmeal and nursing a hangover. These food and drink metaphors aren’t just a coincidence. Jet lag, it turns out, affects more than our sleep; it affects our internal organs as well.

Airborne: No need for coughing or sneezing, flu may spread just by breathing

We may pass the flu to others just by breathing, according to a study which contradicts the popular belief that people can catch the influenza virus by exposure to droplets from an infected person’s coughs or sneezes. The study provides new evidence for the potential importance of airborne transmission because of the large quantities of infectious virus researchers found in the exhaled breath from people suffering from flu. “We found that flu cases contaminated the air around them with infectious virus just by breathing, without coughing or sneezing,” said Donald…

Are you postmenopausal? Just 30 min of exercise can greatly benefit you

Women who are regularly active during menopause can significantly reduce their weight and BMI. However, it’s ideal to continue exercising even after menopause. Just 30 minutes of high intensity resistance and impact training – jumping jacks, push-ups and squats – twice a week may improve functional performance and bone density in postmenopausal women with low bone mass, reveals a recent study. Exercise is known to be beneficial to bone health but there is reluctance to use high intensity programs in older women with low bone mass because of the risk of fracture or other…

Hate going to the gym? Just 25 min of yoga can boost energy levels and brain function

Meditating and practising yoga have numerous health benefits. They can boost your body and mind, and even ‘reverse’ stress-causing DNA.

Researcher Peter Hall from the University Of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada said that hatha yoga and mindfulness meditation both focus the brain’s…

Do you swear a lot and walk around your house naked? You might just be intelligent after all

Findings from a recent research suggest intelligent people are more likely to swear. Researchers at the University of Rochester quizzed 1,000 people about 400 typical behaviours, and discovered a strong like between intelligence and swearing. During the study, all participants were asked to state how often they performed 400 behaviours. Those with higher intellects were found to be more likely to curse, eat spicy breakfasts, and walk around the house naked. Extroverts, as you’d probably expect, like to drive cars faster than 75mph, gamble, tell dirty jokes, and drink a lot….

Age-related frailty may be a treatable and preventable health problem, just like obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease, according to a recent study. “Societies are not aware of frailty as an avoidable health problem and most people usually resign themselves to this condition,” said Jerzy Sacha from the University Hospital in Opole, Poland. “Fortunately, by opting for a proper lifestyle and adequate physical, mental, and social activities, one may prevent or delay the frailty state.” The research team reviewed over one hundred publications on recognising, treating, and preventing frailty, with the aim of…
