Study authors Professor Alex Bertrams from the University of Bern and Dr. Nina Minkley from Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) have concluded that students may be stressed by the fear of jeopardising the social st...

    Replacing meat and dairy with vegan alternatives can cut your risk of heart disease down by one third, a new study has found. It’s good news for vegans, as researchers have found that even those who occasionally dabble with a plant-based diet will see the benefits of it.

    Amazon and Google are in games for the wrong reasons

    Strenuous daily exercise may shorten, not prolong, longevity

    By analyzing longevity data for professional Japanese traditional artists, researchers at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) have found that Kabuki actors, known for their vigorous movements, surprisingly had shorter lifespans compared with other traditional arts performers who lead mostly sedentary lifestyles. The findings suggest that job-related strenuous exercise throughout life may not necessarily extend longevity.

    The Worrisome Link Between Deforestation And Disease

    In 2013, an 18-month old boy got sick after playing near a hollow tree in his backyard, in a remote West African village. He developed a fever and started vomiting. His stool turned black. Two days later, he died. Two years and more than 11,000 deaths later, the World Health Organization put out a report saying the Ebola outbreak that likely emanated from that hollow tree may have been caused in part by deforestation, led by "foreign mining and timber operations."
