Guys who watch a tonne of porn tend to show reduced grey matter and weaker connections between their left and right brain, say experts. In plain English, porn makes you less able to be logical and creative – at the same time. Curb your XXX activities online, and you’ll be making your brain adapt to some other routine.
Take a good look at your balls – yes, your balls. If you see dilated veins, which are similar to spider veins, in your scrotum, schedule an appointment with a specialist immediately. These dastardly things may cause infertility and testicular shrinkage, say experts.
Do this at your public holiday BBQ get-together: Marinate the meats before barbecuing them. The stuff reduces cancer-causing carcinogens on the cooked meat by up to 88 per cent, say experts. Try beer – yes, the darker the better. Vinegar, olive oil and other spices also work. You should however, give sugar- and salt-laden barbecue sauce a miss.
If you’re going to feast, be strategic about it. Experts found binges to have a similar effect to jet lag. Your body has a ‘food clock’ which operates at the cellular level. An all-day blow-out throws it out of kilter and impedes digestion. So, minimise the damage by skipping the brunch buffet. Pig out at regular meal times instead.
Having sex twice a week can half your risk of getting a heart attack, says experts. Not only does play between the sheets provide a sweat-inducing workout, it’s also a form of stress release. Another study showed men who ejaculated through sex or masturbation at least five times a week were much less likely to contract prostate cancer.
Nourish your face – from the inside out. A large handful of sunflower seeds provides 90 per cent of your RDA of skin-clearing vitamin E, found a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Go for the raw, organic kind for a more handsome mug and a trimmer waist.
A daily 6g dose of the amino acid beta-alanine helped athletes knock 4secs off their 800m timing in under a month, found a study. The stuff blocks the effects of lactic acid on your muscles for short periods of time. Perfect for helping you build speed during 2.4km training. Earn a new PB by eating an egg every day.
