Research miraa, marijuana benefits to human health, PS tells scientists

HEALTH, LIFE STYLE, Nature
Education and Research Principal Secretary Simon Nabukwesi has urged scientists to research miraa and marijuana to establish their advantages and disadvantages to human health. The research will help Kenya find a market for the products internationally, he said. Lack of scientific evidence on the advantages of the products, he said, had led people to perceive them as illegal. Mr Nabukwesi spoke during the official opening of the second phase of the Pwani University Bioscience Research Centre at Pwani University in Kilifi. He said anything perceived to have negative effects on the community might also have advantages for it. “We are being told that consumption of miraa is a health hazard but how dangerous is it to someone’s body when they chew the crop,” he said. “Our...

“I think music in itself is healing,” American musician Billy Joel once said. “It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music.” Most of us would wholeheartedly agree with this statement, and it is this universal bond with music that has led researchers across the globe to investigate its therapeutic potential. “We have a such a deep connection to music because it is ‘hardwired’ in our brains and bodies,” said Barbara Else. We can all think of at least one song that, when we hear it, triggers an emotional response. It might be a song that accompanied the first dance at your wedding, for example, or a song that reminds you of a difficult break-up or the loss of a loved one. “We have a such a de...

They say the early bird catches the worm. Gross. Worms are hardly an incentive for humans to get up early, unless you’re heading out to fish and hoping for some free bait. Still, waking up early does have some perks. So, what’re the benefits? Contemplating setting your alarm for an eye-scorchingly early hour? Here’s why it might be worth it. More time for yourself If you live with other humans — little ones or adults — getting up early could give you some much-needed (and desperately wanted) time for yourself. More time to sip that coffee slowly while flipping through the paper or just enjoying the silence can help prepare you to face a hectic day feeling a little more chill.

He is an expert in applying statistics and mathematics to population biology and an associate professor at Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, University of Southern Denmark.

Additionally, teenagers who spent more than 3 hours per day on a smartphone were significantly more likely to be overweight or obese. “These results do not surprise me considering that screen time is a totally sedentary activity occupying time in which teens could be participating in sports or other physical acti...

Queen Elizabeth II became Head of the Commonwealth in 1952, which makes her the world’s longest-reigning queen. You might expect that a leader with such a busy and, at times, stressful role to have a severe demeanour, but this is not the case for Elizabeth. She is, in fact, renowned for her sharp wit and, at times, biting humour. Whether she’s having a laugh to herself or providing amusement for others, she has a great sense of humour on her.
