Drinking a pint of beer each day can reduce the risk of the development of heart diseases and stroke. A study done by researchers from the Pennsylvania State University shows the rate of decline of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol ("good cholesterol" - HDL) could be reduced if a man consumes two servings of alcohol each day and women consume one serving of alcohol each day. Previous studies show HDL cholesterol reduces the risk of stroke and heart disease by removing bad cholesterol from the body. Researchers studied 80,000 Chinese adults but they say more research is required to confirm the results. Even though the studies are inconclusive, the study suggests that there are some health benefits (such as stroke or cardiovascular disease) if an individual drinks small amounts of alcohol. But too much of alcohol consumption is the major risk factor for serious diseases and death. According to NHS, an individual should not consume more than 14 units of alcohol per week.

Researchers say prevention and delay treatments for diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure (BP) or coronary heart disease (CHD) may delay cognitive decline and dementia. A decline in thinking skills is an indicator of the impending larger cognitive impairment and subsequent dementia as individual ages. Researchers studied Biobank data of the UK containing 474,129 records of individuals between 2006 - 2010 years. Researchers neutralized a number of factors that may show error in final results.

A study done by researchers from the Stanford University shows playing "Pokemon GO" game regularly adds 41 days of extended life to the player. Researchers say players recorded 25 percent extra activity, equal to walking extra 1,473 steps per day. Even inactive, obese or overweight individuals show interest and play the game.
