Healthy and wealthy and wise

Over the last year or so, New Scientist has been publishing a lot of stuff on what affects health. I thought I might provide a summary for those who can’t be bothered to read it all. Broadly speaking:

  • – Eating healthy food is good for you
  • – Moderate exercise is good for you
  • – A moderate amount of sunlight is better than none or too much
  • – Taking drugs is bad for you
  • – Getting a decent amount of sleep is good for you
  • – Having more money is good for you
  • – Stress is bad for you
  • – Growing up in a supportive family with your natural parents is good for you

Or, in other words, be a good boy, eat your greens, go outside and play but stay out of the hot sun, don’t get drunk, relax, be back in time for bed and we’ll give you your pocket money because we love you.

Who’d have thunk it?
