"Low to moderate intake of red wine can delay the onset of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. Researchers have now found out how wine compounds are protective against neuronal death, protecting your brain against aging. "

"Although people living in consumer-based cultures such as the U.S. often believe that they will be happier if they acquire more money, the findings of a newly published paper suggest that there may be downsides to this pursuit."

"Excess sugar — especially the fructose in sugary drinks — might damage your brain, new research suggests. Researchers found that people who drink sugary beverages frequently are more likely to have poorer memory, smaller overall brain volume, and a significantly smaller hippocampus. A follow-up study found that people who drank diet soda daily were almost three times as likely to develop stroke and dementia when compared to those who did not."

"Looking to improve your overall life satisfaction? Try regularly hiking in a forest or otherwise engaging with the natural environment. New research at Oregon State University empirically demonstrates that a variety of mechanisms for engaging nature significantly contribute to a person’s overall well-being."

"As we grow old, our nights are frequently plagued by bouts of wakefulness, bathroom trips and other nuisances as we lose our ability to generate the deep, restorative slumber we enjoyed in youth. But that does not mean the elderly need less sleep, according to neuroscientists."
