All Things Conservative discusses the research that shows that government healthcare kills 1,000 new borns every year in the UK.
People who control their impulses and are goal oriented are less likely to get Alzheimer’s, says Reuter’s Health.
People who were highly conscientious — those in the 90th percentile with scores of 40 or higher, had an 89 percent lower risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease than those who ranked in the 10th percentile, with a score of 28 or lower.
The researchers also found that conscientiousness was linked with a slower rate of cognitive decline and a lower risk of mild cognitive impairment, a risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease.
This study uses self-identification on the part of Catholic priests and nuns. I would think that they would be much more conscientious than the general population.
Too much TV for very young children is related to behavioral problems according to this Reuter’s Health article.
While early TV viewing had no effect on kids’ behavior if they watched less TV later on, children who were heavy TV watchers at 2- and 5 years of age had more attention and sleep problems and behaved more aggressively. And children who had TVs in their bedrooms at age 5.5 had more sleep problems and duller emotional reactivity than their peers with TV-free bedrooms.
