Breastfeeding for 6 mos cuts diabetes risk in half: study
Women who breastfeed their babies for six months or more may be able to cut their risk of developing diabetes in the future by nearly half, according to a study Tuesday. The findings from a three-decade US study of more than 1,200 white and African-American women were published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) Internal Medicine.
But a study , published in 2017, suggests that women are more likely to understand what man' s best friend wants. The study , published in the journal Royal Society of Open Science, found that people can pick up on what dogs are attempting to communicate when they growl, and that women are
And as a result, dogs are often more obedient to women than their male counterparts. In January, a report from Blue Cross and Blue Shield found that vaccination rates were up, but so were refusals. It indicated that public health officials were reaching kids who missed vaccines because of a lack of
Ever wonder why all the princesses in fairy tales have such a great rapport with animals? Athat, although we can't actually speak to our furry friends like they do in Disney flicks, in real life, women are actually more fluent in "dog" than men. And as a result, dogs are often more obedient to women than their male counterparts.
In the experiment, which was published in the journal Royal Society of Open Science, researchers recorded the sound of nearly 20 dogs growling in different scenarios - guarding food from other dogs, playing tug of war, or feeling threatened by an approaching stranger - and had a small sample of 40 people attempt to identify the context of the growl.
Treating Our Dogs Like They're Our Babies Is Actually Really Important, According to Science
"Who's a good boy?! Who?! Is it you?! It's YOU!" - every dog owner ever, at any time of day, whether or not their boy was technically doing anything to qualify him as "good."If you're a pet owner, particularly of the canine variety, you know the voice that the above comments are said in very well. It's the voice that had never come out of your mouth before you got a dog and started treating it like your little fur baby, but now, it's just the way you sound when you're talking to your sweet pooch. And apparently, there's a scientific reason for it.
From speaking in squeaky voices to begging for obedience, we've done it all. But the dogs have chosen their side- the women 's, and here ' s why !
And as a result, dogs are often more obedient to women than their male counterparts. In the experiment, which was published in the journal Royal But two types of people — women and those participants who were particularly experienced with dogs — consistently scored higher in this task.
On the whole, humans were good at associating the correct growls with the correct root emotion. But two types of people - women and those participants who were particularly experienced with dogs - consistently scored higher in this task.
Although that might be surprising information, the reason for this increased animal aptitude will probably come as a shock to not one woman. On the contrary, it likely makes perfect sense. Women had a "higher sensitivity to emotional stimuli," the study reported.
"Female participants seem to have an advantage in the recognition of the context," it continued. "It is known that women have a higher emotional sensitivity . . . women are likely more empathetic and sensitive to others' emotions, [which] can help to differentiate better the context of the emotional content of the growls."
Most people don't wash their hands correctly, USDA study finds .
