A research team which measured the value of singing for older people has revealed that those who involve in community singing are healthier than others. The study has also revealed that for older people, singing groups are not only cost-effective, but a strategy to promote good health too. The study which looked in to the health benefits of community singing, conducted by the Sidney De Haan Research Centre for Arts and Health at Canterbury Christ Church University was a two year research project.
If you are a man, and if you think that your ring fingers are short then there is a bit of good news. A latest new study claims that men with short ring fingers may be more likely to recover from prostate cancer. Research shows that those victims of prostate cancer, whose ring finger was shorter than the index finger, responded better to an anti-tumor drug. Apparently, men with short ring fingers have lower levels of testosterone (responsible for prostate tumor growth) and the research conducted on 142 volunteers concluded that these men respond well to anti-tumor drugs called Dutasteride. This drug fights cancer by blocking the effects of testosterone on the prostate, the study says according to Mail Online.
