WHO: The number of smokers is decreasing
According to the World Health Organization’s Global Development Report on Smoking released this week, the number of smokers worldwide is decreasing while the number of non-smokers is increasing. In 2010, 3.9 billion people over the age of 15 in WHO member countries did not smoke (about 78% of the total population of 5.15 billion over the age of 15). In 2015, the number increased to 5 billion, about 81% of the total population of 6.11 billion over the age of 15.
This benign growth shows that all countries are taking measures to control tobacco. However, in order to achieve the important goal of reducing global tobacco consumption by 30% by 2025 and reducing global deaths from non-communicable diseases, countries in the world need to do more.

Women’s Welfare: Better Memory
A recent study published in the JAMA Journal of Neurology shows that although people’s memory level starts to decline from the age of 30, on the whole, women’s memory is better than men’s, especially after the age of 40.
The study, involving 1,246 people aged 30-95 with normal cognition, found that the hippocampus, the part of the brain that controls memory, is smaller for men than for women, especially for men after the age of 60.
The protective effect of female hormones is one of the important reasons that help women win this memory appraisal. Another reason may be: Women have a lower risk of cardiovascular disease than men. Men are more likely to have high blood pressure, diabetes and smoking. You know, what can hurt your blood vessels is also often harmful to your brain.
Breastfeeding makes your children smarter.
A study published this week in the international authoritative medical series “The Lancet Global Health” found that breast-fed babies may grow up smarter and receive better education and financial conditions as adults.
The subjects of the study were 3, More than 500 children, Researchers investigated their feeding patterns, as well as their level of education, income and standard IQ test results at the age of 30. Dr. Bernardo Horta, who led the study, said that Breastfeeding can help improve IQ and improve his education level, thus affecting his income level. For example, for a child who has been breastfed for at least one year, his IQ level will be 4 points higher than the adult average (standard IQ test).
Dr. Bernardo Horta speculated that the effect of breastfeeding on IQ is probably due to the fact that breast milk contains saturated fatty acids necessary for brain development. In addition, the amount of breast milk eaten by babies is also related to the improvement of IQ.
Of course, although breastfeeding is indeed related to the growth of children, this does not mean that children who are not breastfed cannot become successful people. A good parenting environment, parents’ ability and energy, and parents’ love and care can all help children realize more potential when they grow up.
