Preterm Birth Affects Personality And The Quest To Find Love As Adults

If someone says coming too early can hinder your love life, they’re probably not thinking of being born before the due date. Yet an enormous meta-study has found preterm babies are less likely to form romantic partnerships as adults and also have fewer children of their own. These effects aren’t inevitable, but currently almost nothing is being done to improve social outcomes for those born early. The health consequences of very early birth are well known, but effects on personality get less attention. People born before 37 weeks are more likely to be shy and withdrawn, which led Dr Marina Mendonça of the University of Warwick to explore how this influences their romantic lives. In JAMA Network Open, Mendonça reports that those born more than …

On National French Fry Day, your questions about fries, answered

(CNN)From curly to crinkle-cut, shoestring to steak, poutine to disco, July 13 is about celebrating one of the most popular side dishes in the world. Well, the short answer to that they come from Belgium — but also, not really. Though the origins of fries can be traced to Belgium, the French, Belgians and Spanish can’t seem to agree where the idea sprouted and grapple for the claim to greasy fame. American soldiers in World War I first encountered the fried potato in Belgium. Crediting the dominant language of the region, they dubbed them french fries. But it’s worth noting that different versions of the fried potato are a worldwide love, whether in India or Kenya. Who brought french fries …

After drugs and booze, an ultramarathon taught me how to love the mile Im in

Breaking the cycle of my addictions was tough, but then I found inner strength by pushing myself to complete a 50-mile race Running has been a big part of my life for many years. It has been a fix, a punishment, a distraction and a focus. In darker times, I would run at a rapid pace through the streets of New York, where I used to live, feeling the burn in my chest from too many cigarettes the night before, the thumping of my heart from too much cocaine and the sweat on my brow from too much booze. I wanted it to hurt. I wanted to hate myself, to teach myself a lesson. At other times I would run …

Three Labour peers resign whip over ‘anti-Semitism’

Former Health Minister Lord Darzi said that as an Armenian descendant of a “survivor of the Armenian genocide”, he had “zero tolerance to anti-Semitism,” adding that his decision to resign the whip “has not been lightly taken”. Former president of the Royal College of Physicians Lord Turnberg told BBC Newsnight that his differences “lie with the party leadership and machine and not with my very supportive colleagues in the Lords who share my values”. “It is not just the policies on foreign affairs… and Brexit vacillation and bypassing parliamentary opinion but the overt anti-Semitism that permeates the party machine that is no longer possible for me to tolerate,” he said. ‘Deep prejudice’ Labour said it was taking “decisive action against …

Your lifestyle can lower your dementia risk, even if you have high genetic risk, study says

Healthy lifestyle factors may also help lower your risk of dementia, even if you have a higher genetic risk, according to a study published Sunday in the medical journal JAMA.

The standoff between Marc Veyrat and the famous guide is about power and who has the last word, says food writer Dale Berning Sawa Marc Veyrat, the French weekly Le Point, saying: Hello, call me back please, its urgent.

Our Taste For Coffee And Avocado Could Put The World At Risk

Your pumpkin-spice latte is not doing the world any favors.  Most essential staple food crops on the planet – like corn, wheat, rice, or soybeans – don’t require pollinators. However, the changing appetites of the world have pushed global agriculture towards crops that rely on pollination by bees and other insects, such as almonds, coffee, citrus fruits, avocado, to name but a few. Paired with the growing dominance of monocultures and a lack of crop diversity, this dependence on pollinators could threaten global food security and economic stability through mass crop failure, according to a new study. Reported in the journal Global Change Biology, scientists have analyzed around 50 years’ worth of data for the first global assessment of how current trends in farming …
