The majority of British people dread the alarm clock and hit the snooze button every morning, a study has discovered, making Brits the most grumpy morning people in Europe. Compared to our European counterparts, who wake up feeling refreshed and ready to face the day, Brits are short-tempered, miserable and still half asleep when they eventually pull themselves from under the duvet. According to the study by Philips Wake-up Light, only a third of Brits consider themselves an 'early-bird' who rises out of bed as soon as the alarm clock goes off, and 40 per cent admit they struggle to find the energy to get out of bed after countless snooze alarm attempts. The survey involved 11, 000 Europeans and found that British people spend an astonishing four months over the course of a lifetime hitting the snooze button on their alarm clocks. Brits are the top of the grumpy league, with fellow grouchy nation's Sweden, Finland, Norway, Austria and Holland closely behind. Sleepy Brits Are The Grumpiest ‘Morning People' In Europe

News360.com Stéphane Marceau is the co-founder of OMsignal, a wearable tech innovator. Back in 2008, my co-founder Frederic Chanay and I took our first stab at developing a rough prototype for a bracelet with an accelerometer and skin conductance sensor that connected to an iPhone via Bluetooth.

Researchers in the United States say there's a 'shocking' association - if only a statistical one - between violence by teenagers and the amount of fizzy soft drink they drink. High-school students in inner-city Boston who consumed more than five cans of non-diet, fizzy soft drinks every week were between nine and 15 per cent likelier to engage in an aggressive act compared with counterparts who drank less. "What we found was that there was a strong relationship between how many soft drinks that these inner-city kids consumed and how violent they were, not only in violence against peers but also violence in dating relationships, against siblings," said David Hemenway, a professor at the Harvard School of Public Health. "It was shocking to us when we saw how clear the relationship was," he told AFP in an interview. US research shows link between soft drink and violence - Health
Israel Herald (ANI) Tuesday 25th October, 2011 Maintaining an active lifestyle could be a new way to keep our eyes healthy and reduce glaucoma risk, a new study has suggested. It found that higher levels of physical exercise appear to have a long-term beneficial impact on low ocular perfusion pressure (OPP), an important risk factor for glaucoma. The study examined the relationship between physical activity and current OPP in 5,650 men and women aged 48 to 90 who live in the U.K. and were part of initial cohort from 1993 - 1997. From 2006 to 2010, study participants were examined for eye pressure -medically termed intraocular pressure (IOP)- and systolic and diastolic blood pressure measurements.

Health | Divide over when to use in-depth cholesterol tests For heart health, you're supposed to know your numbers: Total cholesterol, the bad LDL kind and the good HDL kind. But your next checkup might add a new number to the mix. More doctors are going beyond standard cholesterol counts, using another test to take a closer look at the bad fats - a count of particles that carry LDL through the blood. Cardiologists are divided over the usefulness of that approach.

Novartis to cut 2,000 jobs to save annual $200 million ZURICH (Reuters) - Novartis AG is slashing 2,000 jobs in Switzerland and the United States to keep costs under control in the face of growing price pressures and the strong Swiss franc, the Swiss drugmaker said on Tuesday. The Basel-based group has already cut thousands of jobs and shut several sites, notably in Britain. It has also shifted its focus to specialty medicines over the past year in a bid to boost profitability and protect its bottom line. The latest measures, which affect 1.7 percent of Novartis' global workforce and involve moving more commoditized business activities to less expensive countries, should allow the group to rake in annual savings of more than $200 million. Like its cross-town rival Roche, Novartis is having to deal with the double whammy of price pressures and a strong currency, which has pushed up the cost of doing business in Switzerland.
