the smart man’s cheat sheet

Sunny side up: eggs can help you sleep. Eat this Food for ZZZs Eating eggs for dinner could help you get a better night’s kip. Eggs are a good source of the amino acid tryptophan, which your body uses to make the hormone melatonin and the neurotransmitter serotonin – both of which help to prepare your body for sleep by chilling you out. Pair it with a banana for dessert – ’nanas are another good source of tryptophan, as well as magnesium and potassium, which can help relax your muscles. Do this Make brilliant babies Want to have smart kids? Put in the hard yards now before your partner gets pregnant. German scientists have found that physical and mental exercise can trigger a genetic change in sperm, potentially influencing…

we’re number 2

It’s not often that we like to come second to New Zealand, but in this case we’re happy to nab the silver. A new study by Dema.plus, the Skin Cancer Index 2018, has rated Australia second in the world for skin cancer susceptibility, with a skin cancer incidence score of 9.67. Our Kiwi cousins top the chart with a score of 10. Each year, more than 12,250 new melanoma cases are diagnosed here in Oz, and while you think you might be protecting yourself by smearing on some sunscreen, you might not be doing as much as you believe. Researchers from King’s College London, UK, have found that most people are not getting the full ultraviolet radiation-blocking benefit of sunscreen because they’re applying it more thinly than manufacturers recommend.…

Exercise performed immediately after practising a new motor skill improves its long-term retention. 15-minute fix Want to learn how to nail a new motor skill, like walking a tightrope or balancing a case of beer on your head? A new study published in NeuroImage has found that exercise performed immediately after practising a new motor skill improves its long-term retention. More specifically, the research shows for the first time that as little as a single 15-minute bout of cardiovascular exercise increases brain connectivity and efficiency. This finding could help to accelerate recovery of motor skills in patients who’ve suffered a stroke or who face mobility problems following an injury. It could also potentially unleash a multitude of beer-balancing tightrope walkers across the land. Winning on both fronts. Sport…

Mad about chew Beef jerky and other processed meat products have already been linked with bowel cancer, but if that’s not enough to scare you away from the sausage shop, this might be: US Johns Hopkins Medicine researchers have found a link between nitrates – chemicals used to cure meats such as beef jerky, salami, hot dogs and other processed meat snacks – and manic episodes, which cause hyperactivity, euphoria, insomnia, dangerous risk-taking behaviour and delusional thinking. In fact, the study found people hospitalised for mania have more than three times the odds of having ever eaten nitrate-cured meats. There’s more – rats fed nitrated beef jerky or that had nitrates added to their diet showed mania-like behaviour. That’s enough to put any man off his pepperoni pizza.…

make it an early bite

Having an early dinner or leaving an interval of at least two hours before going to bed are both associated with a lower risk of prostate cancer. So say researchers from the Barcelona Institute for Global Health. More specifically, they found that blokes who eat their evening meal before 9pm or wait at least two hours before going to sleep have an approximate 20 percent lower risk of prostate cancer compared to those who have dinner after 10pm or those who eat and go to bed very soon afterwards.…

Green is good City life can be depressing. But a study published in JAMA Network Open may offer a solution to blue urbanites – greening vacant lots. The study found that converting trash-and rubble-filled vacant lots into green spaces significantly reduces feelings of depression and improves overall mental health for the surrounding residents. They found that people living within a 400-metre radius of greened lots had a 41.5 percent decrease in feelings of depression compared to those who lived near the lots that had not been converted. Those living near green lots also experienced a nearly 63 percent decrease in self-reported poor mental health. You’ve got malice. Mail trail Before you press send on that snarky email you just hammered out, take a minute to think about the…
