Men Take The Flu Harder Than Women
Men take the flu harder than women.
A new survey from Stuff.co.nz found that 98% of women and 79% of men agree that men demand more sympathy when they have the flu . . . I knew it!
Around 75% of people surveyed, including 72% of women, say they believe men’s flu symptoms are worse than women’s and take longer to recover from.
2.) Cold helps you lose weight? A new study from Newswise out of Boston has found that cooling your body down actually helps you burn extra fat. People who wore a 57-degree vest for a few hours lost more weight than anyone else in the survey.
What does that mean? If you’re willing to subject yourself to an ice-cold shower or bath, it’ll probably help you burn a little more fat on a daily basis.
3.) Sharing a bed keeps you alive. According to sleep experts from Wall Street Journal, one of the main reasons married people have better health and live longer is because they share a bed.
A new study at the University of Pittsburgh has found people who share a bed actually have lower levels of a stress hormone called cortisol. They also have fewer cytokines, which are involved in inflammation.
