NOWFOR THE SCIENCE BIT...

Want to cut your risk of death and

admission to hospital from heart disease

by almost a third? Then cut out the meat

and fish. That's the advice of scientists

on the back of a major new study of the

effects of diet on heart health. The study,

published in the

American Journal of

Clinical Nutrition

, followed the health of

nearly 45,000 British adults over a period

of 11.6 years. Vegetarians were 32 per

cent less likely to die or be hospitalised

due to heart disease, due to their diet's

less harmful effects on cholesterol levels

and blood pressure.

KICKING OFF

If the London 2012 Olympic and

Paralympic Games made you

feel all warm inside, you weren't

alone. The event lifted the mood

of the country, even after it had

drawn to a close, according to

research by Precise. Analysis

of social media conversations

during the six weeks following the

Paralympic Games revealed that

people loved their lives more than

during the same period in 2011,

were less stressed, more satisfied

at work, and took a keener

interest in personal fitness.

Given the squeeze on people's

finances, the findings suggest

well-being and wealth really don't

go hand-in-hand.

James Withey, Head of Brand

Insight at Precise, said:“The

emphasis seems to have shifted

to enjoying what we have. Not

only do Britons appear happier

and less stressed, there is a

feeling that we now have more to

look forward to.”
