Behaviour: Hunter-gatherer humans mirror mammals and birds living in the same areas, study finds 

Human hunter-gatherers find food, reproduce, share parenting responsibilities and organise social groups in ways that mirror local birds and mammals, a study found. Researchers from the UK and Germany analysed data on the behaviours of foraging human and local animal populations from 339 locations across the globe. They found that for nearly all behaviours analysed, humans … Read more Behaviour: Hunter-gatherer humans mirror mammals and birds living in the same areas, study finds 

Half an hour of stretching is more effective at reducing blood pressure than a walk, study finds 

People with high blood pressure are better off having a stretch at home rather than going out for a walk if they want to lower their blood pressure, study finds.

Millipede swarms disrupting Japan’s trains for 50 years only emerge every eight years, study finds

Scientists have determined the swarms of thousands of millipedes that infest parts of Japan aren’t random. The arthropods, which gather in clusters so large they can delay train traffic, are on a unique eight-year life cycle. This makes the ‘train millipedes’ the only other periodical animal besides cicadas, and the only non-insect. Researchers uncovered the … Read more Millipede swarms disrupting Japan’s trains for 50 years only emerge every eight years, study finds

Stricter COVID-19 restrictions likely saved THOUSANDS of lives in European countries, study finds 

European countries that had stricter mitigation measures against COVID-19 likely saved thousands of lives, a new study finds. Nations such as Serbia, Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina had closed schools and offices, limited gatherings and implemented stay-at-home orders before cases began rapidly spreading across the continent, the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) revealed … Read more Stricter COVID-19 restrictions likely saved THOUSANDS of lives in European countries, study finds
