Exciting research from the University of Sydney reveals that as little as 4.5 minutes of intense physical activity during daily tasks can cut the risk of certain cancers by up to 32%. The study, published in JAMA Oncology, tracked over 22,000 ‘non-exercisers’ for nearly seven years using wearable devices. The short bursts of activity, termed “Vigorous Intermittent Lifestyle Physical Activity” (VILPA), include activities like vigorous housework or power walking. While the study is observational and not conclusive, it highlights the potential benefits of incorporating VILPA into daily routines. The researchers suggest further investigation to better understand this promising cancer risk reduction approach.
A novel method has been developed by the University of California San Diego researchers using synthetic biology to slow down the deterioration of cells as they age. After studying the gene circuits that control the aging process in cells, they genetically rewired the circuit to operate as a clock-like device called a gene oscillator. The […]
The Lancet Countdown’s recent assessment indicates a dire future for global health due to climate change. A 4.7-fold increase in annual heat-related deaths is projected by 2050, with nearly five times more fatalities from extreme heat. Additionally, escalating carbon emissions pose threats such as widespread droughts, expanded mosquito-borne diseases, and strained health systems. The study […]
Sleep OR SUBCONSCIOUS AWAKENING! Traditionally sleep was considered as a dormant state of mind and body. Thanks to the new era of mind research, that indicated an entirely new world of complex thought processes, tremendous off-screen sensations happening while we are asleep. Scientists have emphasized that the subconscious mind gears up while the awakened mind […]
