Ninety-six percent of women think they are not beautiful.

Unfortunately, 96% of women think they are not beautiful.

Of the 6,400 women aged 18 to 64 in San Francisco, Shanghai, New Delhi, London and Sao Paulo, Brazil, 80 percent thought they were beautiful, but 96 percent did not describe themselves as beautiful, a worldwide survey found on April 7th. In addition, 78 percent of them were not confident about their appearance.

Seventy percent of the women surveyed agreed that [beauty] lies not only in their natural appearance. Even 32% said that their greatest pressure on appearance came from those women who made up.

For a long time, we all know that women are deeply troubled by the problem of appearance. Looking at these data, should we think about whether the [beauty] standard is a bit too much?

[Magic Bullet], New Breakthrough in AIDS Treatment?

The famous scientific journal Nature recently published a new study: Scientists have discovered a new method of AIDS prevention and treatment.

Unlike traditional “cocktail therapy”, At the heart of the new therapy is an antibody called 3BNC117, The antibody can effectively reduce the viral load in the infected person, and has a certain protective effect on healthy people without infection, also known as [magic bullet].

Short people are more likely to suffer from heart disease?

This is really not a joke by epidemiologists! It’s not the tall scientists! It is serious scientific research.

In an article published this week in the New England Journal of Medicine, Professor Nilesh Samani of the University of Leicester and his team collected genetic data from 200,000 people worldwide for analysis.

The results showed that for every 2.5 inches (6.35 centimeters) increase in height, the risk of heart disease decreased by 13.5%. In other words, a person who is 5 feet (1.524 meters) tall has a 30% higher risk of heart disease than a person who is 5 feet 6 inches (1.74 meters) tall.

But at the same time, scientists also pointed out that smokers have a 100-200 times higher risk of heart disease than non-smokers. Compared with the risk of heart disease caused by smoking, the effect of height is really negligible. Instead of worrying about height, it is better to quit smoking.

Health warning! [Night Owls] Attention

Are you an early bird who goes to bed early and rises early every day, or a night owl who does not sleep until early morning?

A new South Korean study found that [night owl] behavior may lead to an increased risk of diabetes and various health problems. A total of 1,620 volunteers aged between 47 and 59 participated in the study. Researchers investigated their schedules, blood sample analysis and body measurements.

Research shows that men [night owls] have a higher risk of diabetes than people who go to bed early and get up early, while women [night owls] have a double risk of metabolic syndromes such as hyperglycemia and waist and abdomen obesity.

This may be due to poor sleep quality and other unhealthy lifestyle habits, such as late-night eating and sedentary activities, the researchers said. Night owls can also become healthier early birds by improving their work, diet and exercise.
