WORK­ING TO DEATH

Tak­ing a hol­i­day could pro­long your life, a 40-year study car­ried out at the Univer­sity of Fin­land has found. The study fol­lowed over 1,200 mid­dleaged male ex­ec­u­tives start­ing in 1974. They found that those who took less than three weeks’ hol­i­day a year had a 37 per cent greater chance of dy­ing over the du­ra­tion of the study than those who took more.

OLD ON THE INSIDE

A study at the Univer­sity of Texas eval­u­at­ing more than 60,000 brain scans has de­ter­mined that schizophre­nia, cannabis abuse, bipo­lar dis­or­der, ADHD and al­co­hol abuse are all as­so­ci­ated with in­creased brain age­ing. It is the largest study of brain im­ages ever car­ried out.
