Posted by in categories: economics, health, space

Gardens are good for you. Having 10 per cent more green space in your surroundings can bring health improvements roughly equivalent to being five years younger, according to one study – even when other possible influences like socio-economic status are taken into account.

As we adapt to technological advancements and diverse workplaces, let’s break out a crystal ball, examine the available evidence, and see where things may be a decade from now.

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, health

For a few people—those who are terminally ill, in severe pain and determined to die—suicide may be the least terrible option.
