Once the initial joy over finally seeing some sun subsides, going about your day during a heatwave can be difficult. According to Telegraph, here is a list of ten helpful tips to ensure you get through this heatwave with ease. 1. Stock up on sunscreen The sun is at its strongest point between 11am and 3pm, so make sure you're covered in sunscreen if you're likely to be outside during these times. Cancer Research UK recommends the use of at least a factor 15 sunscreen. If you're unsure about how powerful the sun is during other times of the day, the Met Office recommends checking your shadow: "If your shadow is shorter than you are, then the sun is strong." • This is how suncream actually protects your skin 2. Eat a balanced diet As well as regulating your weight, your metabolism also keeps your body temperature at the right level. As it gets warmer, you body doesn't need to work as hard to maintain your body temperature and you can often lose your appetite - especially if you're not used to the hot weather. This means you lose a lot of salt through sweating. Make sure to eat a balanced diet to keep your salt levels normal so your body doesn't overheat. 3. Turn off your electricals Keep the number of electrical appliances you have turned on to a minimum. Laptops, light bulbs, ovens, microwaves, and other electrical appliances generate unnecessary heat. 4. Avoid alcohol As tempting as it might be to pop open a bottle of your favourite wine and recline in your garden, alcohol can promote dehydration. It acts as a diuretic, meaning you urinate more than usual after drinking. If you can't resist a glass, make sure you drink plenty of water alongside it to replace the lost fluids. • Drinking wine every night hasn't done me any harm 5. Walk Public transport can be a nightmare during the best of times. Combine that with hundreds of hot and sweaty commuters and public transport services without air conditioning, it's a recipe for disaster. If you can walk to your destination, opt for that instead. But remember to stay in the shade. If public transport is unavoidable, make sure to bring a bottle of water with you. • There's nowhere to go in London for peace and quiet 6. Wear lightweight clothes The NHS recommends wearing loose, breathable and lightweight clothing, in light colours, specifically cotton and linen. 7. Avoid physical exertion Activities such as outdoor exercise, DIY and gardening should be avoided during a heatwave. If you feel compelled to do them, leave it until the cooler parts of the day like the early morning or evening. • Most frequent gym-goers are not who you think they are 8. Get indoor plants Place indoor plants and bowls of water around your home as the evaporation helps cool the air. 9. Avoid electric fans In extreme temperatures, reaching above 35°C, electric fans may cause dehydration instead of providing relief from the heat. Don't aim the fan directly at your body and have regular drinks. This is especially important if you are ill and confined to bed during a heatwave. 10. Look out for your pets Remember your pets aren't immune to high temperatures. In 2014, the British Veterinary Association reported that 48 per cent of vets treated animals for conditions related to hot weather. Make sure they have plenty of fresh, clean water to drink, and avoid exercising them at the hottest points of the day. The PDSA also recommends trimming your pet's fur at the beginning of the summer to help them keep cool. More»

Playing team sports and exercising during adolescence can have long-lasting benefits for women and may even reduce their risk of dying from cancer and other causes later in life, a new study showed on Friday. Researchers who analyzed how often women exercised while in their teens found that being active for just 1.3 hours a week had a positive impact as they got older. "The main finding is that exercise during adolescence is associated with a reduced risk of mortality, or death, in middle aged to older women," Sarah J. Nechuta, an assistant professor of medicine at Vanderbilt Epidemiology Center and Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center in Nashville, said in an interview. Women who were physically active in their teens had a 16 percent lower risk of dying from cancer and a 15 percent decreased risk of death from all causes, according to the study. "Our results support the importance of promoting exercise participation in adolescence," said Nechuta, "and highlight the critical need for the initiation of disease prevention early in life." The findings, which are published in the journal "Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention" are based on data from a study of 75,000 women from Shanghai, China led by Wei Zheng at the Vanderbilt Epidemiology Center. Although the findings were based on data on women in China, the benefits of exercising during the teen years could be applicable to all women. "It general, there is no reason to believe that exercise participation would differ in the effect on women in general regardless of where they live," Nechuta said. Women in the study were aged between 40 to 70 years old when they were recruited from 1996 to 2000. They were interviewed about lifestyle factors and how much they exercised during their teens. There were 5,282 deaths after an average of nearly 13 years of follow-up, including 2,375 deaths from cancer and 1,620 from cardiovascular disease. More»

You have read umpteen number of articles on the benefits of drinking green tea. There are studies that prove it too. But, do you know that the almost magical properties of this drink can be put to other good uses? Green tea contains polyphenols, which are the key ingredient in many cosmetics. Research shows that polyphenols exhibit not just antioxidant, but anti-melanogenic and anti-wrinkle properties.

A lung cancer therapy can more than double life expectancy in some patients, a "milestone" trial shows. Nivolumab stops cancerous cells hiding from the body's own defences, leaving the cancer vulnerable to attack. The results from 582 people, presented at the American Society of Clinical Oncology, were described as "giving real hope to patients". Lung cancer is the most deadly type of cancer, killing nearly 1.6 million people every year. More»

The clock has struck 9, it’s getting late for the office – skip breakfast. Reached home late in the night – skip dinner. Often lack of time or the belief that skipping meals (dieting – is what most of you might call it) will help in weight loss are common reasons to skip eating. But if you put off eating for any reason, then it’s time you think again. Dr Neha Sanwalkha, nutritionist and dietician, says ‘Skipping meals does not provide any health benefits. Instead, it has many side effects.’ Here’s what are they: More»

Nestle and internet giant Google are joining forces to create a limited run of 600,000 KitKat wrappers branded with the name "YouTube Break". The latest collaboration comes after Google named its Android 4.4 OS update KitKat, back in September 2013. The "YouTube Break" is just one of many new limited edition KitKat wrappers launched as part of the biggest redesign in the chocolate bar's 80-year long history. As KitKat celebrates its 80th anniversary and YouTube turns 10 this year, it is really exciting to be taking the partnership to a new phase Dame Fiona Kendrick Chief executive of Nestle UK and Ireland Dame Fiona Kendrick said: "As KitKat celebrates its 80th anniversary and YouTube turns 10 this year, it is really exciting to be taking the partnership to a new phase."

David Black, MD Branding & Consumer Markets for Google UK said: "It’s great to see KitKat consumers are huge fans of YouTube and, along with our 1 billion users, regard YouTube as a favourite source of entertainment. "With half of YouTube views now on mobile devices, ‘YouTube my break’ is a fun way for more people to interact on the channel and enjoy the best videos available." Food giant Nestle confirmed more than 100 million specially designed packs will be produced – featuring 72 different types of "breaks". The hashtag #MyBreak will be moulded into the chocolate in the limited edition chocolate bars. "Me Time Break" and "Sporty Break" are two of the 72 new branded wrappers set to be sold in stores.
