Children don’t eat fruits and vegetables? Let them play for a while
Are you still worried that Xiong Haizi people don’t eat vegetables and fruits? Does your child wolf down ice cream and chocolate, but turn a blind eye to vegetables and apples?
U.S. Researchers tried to change the order of eating and resting, and later found that resting before eating can promote children’s appetite and encourage them to eat more vegetables and fruits more than resting after eating.
Researchers conducted experiments in 7 primary schools in Utah. Three schools took breaks before lunch and four schools took breaks after lunch to observe the children’s meals.
The results showed that children ate more than 54% more fruits and vegetables in schools that had a rest before lunch. However, in schools that had a rest after lunch, children only ate a little fruit and vegetables as usual.
For the sake of children’s healthy diet, give them more time to play before meals.
Blood type may be associated with heart disease risk
A new study has found that people with type O blood have a lower risk of heart disease and a longer life span than people with other blood types.
The study lasted for 7 years and involved about 50,000 middle-aged and elderly people in Iran. Researchers found that people with non-type 0 blood were 15% more likely to suffer from cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases than people with type O blood, and 9% more likely to die from various diseases.
About 11,000 of the participants provided their blood biochemical information, and analysis showed that people with type A blood had higher total cholesterol and low density lipoprotein-while low density lipoprotein is usually considered [bad cholesterol].
Dr Etemadi, lead scientist of the study and an epidemiologist at the National Institute of Health, believes that these indicators may be related to the risk of illness and death. Moreover, people with non-type O blood have a higher risk of thrombosis and are more likely to suffer from heart disease.
Of course, experts said that people with non-type O blood need not worry too much. Heart disease risk and life span are related to many factors, and a healthy lifestyle is still the primary factor affecting personal health.
Blessed Coffee Controllers: Coffee May Help Prevent Skin Cancer
A new study shows that drinking coffee daily may help prevent certain skin cancers, such as malignant melanoma.
The study found that people who drink 4 cups or more of coffee a day are 20% less likely to develop malignant melanoma than people who do not drink coffee.
Researchers tracked data from 447,357 retirees for 10 years. The results showed that among those who drank four cups or more of coffee a day, the annual incidence of melanoma was 55.9/100,000. For those who did not drink coffee, the number rose to 77.64/100,000.
Coffee control, the only thing to consider next is whether to want American style, latte or mocha.

As we all know, blood flow and cognitive function in the brain reach their peak when they are young, and the amount of oxygen supplied to the brain is directly related to the health and function of the brain. Recently, a new study of 52 young women found that people who exercise regularly have higher brain oxygen supply and better performance in complex cognitive tasks.
[Our research results show that even for young people whose brain development has reached its peak, regular physical exercise can improve brain function,] said Dr. Machado, a senior psychophysiologist. [Regular exercise can increase brain blood supply and improve cognitive function.]
Young man, still waiting for what, start sports!
