Internet access means a tremendous amount of information flooding to our head every day. It does afford us valuable knowledge about particular topics, but most of the time, it also distorts the facts. And when we discuss health, there are millions, if not billions, of online articles published as we breathe.
Here, we will learn about three health facts that may surprise you. People commonly take them as unhealthy, but science has proven otherwise.
Moderate Beer Consumption Improves Your Health
Alcohol abstinence has become popular lately. People who do not drink have seemed to gain a special favor from the society for restraining themselves from intoxication. However, the latest studies show that moderate alcohol consumption, particularly beers, can contribute positively to your health.
If we learn from the history of antiquity, beer was even a healthier alternative to water. Many water sources were polluted in the past. And humans had not known how to filter water efficiently and effectively. The beer history showed how the fermentation process eliminated harmful bacteria and made the beverage the safest option.
According to Menshealth, there were studies across nations (Dutch, Finland, Spain, Canada, and America) that managed to reveal the health benefits of moderate beer-drinking:
- Preventing Type 2 Diabetes
- Lowering the Risk of Kidney Stones
- Helping You to Recover Faster After a Workout
- Reducing the Risk of Developing Cataracts
- Lowering Your Blood Pressure
A moderate beer consumption behavior is around two to three cans per day.
Marijuana is Not All About Getting High
We inherited the anti-cannabis mindset from the early 2000s when the plant was still central to anti-authoritarian movements, such as the Moroccan and Afghan terrorists. Today, that status has not drastically changed, but at least, many scientists have studied marijuana and found out how it can benefit our health.
The medical science has separated the THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) chemical from CBD (Cannabidiol). THC is the substance that causes the user to feel high. CBD, on the other hand, contains only the healing effect. It is known to treat depression and anxiety. It is also highly effective to improve the side effects of chemotherapy. Experiments in the lab even showed that the chemicals in cannabis could kill cancer cells.
Today, many countries have supported the decriminalization of the cannabis business. If you live in Canada, Netherlands, or Spain, then you can enjoy cannabis vape juice and even the edibles. You are among the lucky ones!
Managed Stress Can Be Good for Your Mind
Our mind is like a knife. If we do not sharpen it with a whetstone regularly, it will get dull. Stress functions similarly to that whetstone. It can unleash your hidden potential if your mind is exposed to it in just enough intensity.
Therefore, you should manage your stress instead of avoiding it altogether. Life is better with challenges because if you can pass them, you improve yourself.
