Do Amish hold clue to preventing asthma in children? - BBC News
The Amish community in the US has long been famous for shunning modern technology and preserving traditional ways of life, using horses for farming and for transport.
Now it appears that their closer contact with animals could have an unexpected benefit - preventing asthma in children.

Investors urge fast food and pub chains to act to reduce farm antibiotics
A group of powerful City investors who together control more than $1tn in assets have written to leading fast food, pub and restaurant chains urging them to take immediate action to reduce antibiotic use in their meat and poultry supply chains. [...] UK human campylobacter infections have become more resistant to antibiotic treatment. Percentage of human campylobacter cases tested that showed some degree of resistance to the antibiotic ciprofloxacin - approaches 50%!!! [...] Of the 17,332 human campylobacter cases tested in 2015 for resistance to ciprofloxacin, 48% had some degree of resistance to the drug. In 2005, this figure was 30%.

Peanut allergy theory backed up by new research - BBC News
The effects of eating peanut products as a baby to avoid the risk of allergy have been backed up by new research. In 2015, a study claimed early exposure to peanut products could cut the risk of allergy by 80%. Now researchers say "long-lasting" allergy protection can be sustained - even when the snacks are later avoided for a year. [...] "I believe that this fear of food allergy has become a self-fulfilling prophecy, because the food is excluded from the diet and, as a result, the child fails to develop tolerance," he told the BBC News website. The researchers used the same children who took part in the 2015 study - half of whom had been given peanut snacks as a baby while the remainder had been fed on a diet of breast milk alone. //&! bit.ly/1SoBDsm

Human-Neanderthal relationships may be at root of modern allergies | Science | The Guardian
The three genes are among the most common strands of Neanderthal and Denisovan-like DNA found in modern humans, suggesting they conferred an evolutionary advantage. They probably boosted the immune system, since the genes are involved in the body’s first line of defence against pathogens such as bacteria and fungi. Neanderthals and me: we go back a long way Read more But people who carry the three genes seem to pay a price in the form of an overly-sensitive immune system. One study by the US genetics company 23andme found that carriers of the genes were more likely to have asthma, hay fever and other allergies.

Are night shifts killing me? - bbc.in/1SG209a // hard wired to sleep at night. even organs // bbc.in/1fHEU5o - Alarm clocks may be set at 3am, but body clocks never get used to the night shift (regardless of how much sleep an individual gets). This can disrupt the rhythm of vital gene activity. Night workers are likely to sleep less and less well than those keeping daytime hours, as they try to get their shut-eye while the rest of the street cuts its grass and revs its engines in the full glare of daylight. Those starting work at 4am are thought to have the mental prowess of those who’ve downed a few whiskies, which may explain a higher rate of work injuries at night than in the day. Cause of cancer. Brain drain. Feeling down. Also pitted to eat more and unhealthy!

BBC iWonder - Are you getting enough sleep?
In many cultures an afternoon nap or siesta is a way of life and the health benefits are impressive with increased stamina, reduced heart disease, improved mental ability and better moods. Studies have shown that a one hour nap can actually improve our mental alertness by up to 10 hours. So the next time you're being chastised for nodding off, remember this – some of the world's greatest minds have been advocates of the power nap – including Leonardo da Vinci who is said to have taken a 20 minute nap every four hours. Lots of mammals sleep irregularly throughout the day too, it's just us humans that choose to sleep in large chunks throughout the night. We're actually pre-programmed to sleep twice a day with our perfect nap zones around 2am and 2pm which explains why we're often tired after lunch, especially after eating carbohydrates which contain tryptophan that can make us drowsy.

Go tell the boss: let me work less and I’ll produce more | Life and style | The Guardian
The five-day work week is an artificial and outmoded idea. A shorter working week can boost efficiency and an employee’s happiness [...] The latest trend might have more going for it, though: more tech businesses are experimenting with four-day weeks. As Ryan Carson, co-founder of the education startup Treehouse, put it: “You get all day Friday off, instead of pretending like you’re working when you’re not.” [...] The most important reason to work fewer days, of course, is that it’s good for families, friendship, hobbies and the human spirit. But the most interesting implication of the current experiments, backed by some academic research, is that it appears to be good for productivity and work quality, too. Partly that’s because desk-based “knowledge work” relies on plenty of brain rest as well as exertion.

In a study published last year, researchers found that both nocturnal and daytime sleeping improved memory consolidation for unrelated word pairs – like ‘pepper’ and ‘elbow’ – suggesting it can help if you’re trying to learn tricky-to-remember concepts. Another study, conducted at the Beijing University of Technology, examined the effect of napping on athletes after training. It found that naps could improve brain function and visual systems, and promote physical and mental recovery – a result that is in line with earlier research demonstrating that napping can facilitate motor memory consolidation.
