Eat Your Veggies for a Longer Life!

Written by

You know the saying, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away"? Turns out eating one apple isn't enough. A new study suggests people who eat up to seven servings of fruit and

vegetables a day can cut their risk of death by 42% - and that vegetables may be more important than fruit to your overall health. During the study, researchers also found

that vegetables are king – and end up being more important than fruit to your overall health.

It seems diets rich in fruits and vegetables protect people against cancer, heart disease, and all other causes of death.

So, hit the farmer’s market – or plant a garden. Your life might depend on it. (CNN)

Stress Affects Men's IQs

Written by

Everyone gets stressed out, but new research suggests that men and women cope with these situations in different ways.

Men’s IQs drop when they’re under stress – and they become more selfish. Researchers found that intelligence drops when men are freaking out – and they are less able to distinguish their own emotions and intentions from those of other people. Women, as you can guess, are the exact opposite. When they’re stressed, their IQ increases and they become more empathetic.  According to the study, men become more egocentric and self-centered when stressed. They have trouble separating their own intentions and emotions from those of the people around them. On the other hand, women who are under a lot of stress may become “prosocial.”
