This Week In Health News

Every Wednesday, The S-Life Mag will make sure you’re in the know about the latest scientific studies and current events pertaining to health, wellness, nutrition and more. This is the stuff you need to know for your body, mind and soul!

 

TOP STORY!

  • An increasing number of women are giving birth by cesarean section, whether because of medical reasons or personal choice, and there are numerous implications: longer recovery times, compromised infant microbiomes and, according to new research, human evolution. That’s right: Experts say the uptick in births by c-section may be contributing to evolutionary changes, specifically a gradual reduction in pelvis width.

 

MORE GOOD STUFF…

  • We’ll admit that we’re a little bit obsessed with the microbiome, but it’s with good reason: those trillions of bacteria living inside you are incredibly powerful. The latest discovery in microbiome research finds a link between gut bacteria and the onset of Parkinson’s disease, a development that could lead to new treatments that target the belly instead of the brain.

 

  • You might want to rethink your standing bikini wax appointment. People who groom their hair down there might be at greater risk of contracting sexually-transmitted infections.

 

 

 

 

  • We’re all for occasional indulgences, but here’s a reminder that cigarettes really shouldn’t be one of them: A study found even social smokers face a greater risk of early death than non-smokers.

 

  • Nuts earn superfood status for their impressive nutrient content: We’re talking omegas, vitamins, minerals and plant-based protein. And according to new research, a handful of nuts per day might very well keep the doctor away. A study found people who ate 20g of nuts daily (any variety!) were less likely to suffer from heart disease, cancer, respiratory illness and premature death from any cause.
