Learning value of money may make kids less philanthropic

first_imgEven if your five-year-old kid does not know what money can buy for him or her, the moment he or she gets to know the value of it, chances are the knowledge may make him or her less philanthropic in nature, says an interesting research.In other words, the act of handling money makes young children work harder and give less. This effect was observed in children who lacked the concrete knowledge of money’s purpose and persisted despite the denomination of the money.

It produces good outcomes in terms of concentration and effort but bad outcomes when it comes to helping, taking, and donating.” said professor Kathleen Vohs from the University of Minnesota and co-author of the study.For this, the researchers conducted five experiments and one study involving 550 children (ages three-six) in Poland and the US. In one experiment, the children were asked to either sort money or buttons before completing a challenging puzzle. The paper is forthcoming in the journal Psychological Science.last_img read more

Visiting dentist may cut pneumonia risk

first_imgGood oral hygiene can reduce bad bacteria in the mouth and thus decrease the risk of developing pneumonia, a research has found. Pneumonia is an infection that inflames air sacs in one or both lungs, which may fill with fluid.The infection is more common among older people and those with conditions such as AIDS or lung disease. The study found that people who never get dental checkups had an 86 per cent greater risk of pneumonia than those who visit the dentist twice a year.

Some microbes are good and some are bad, but even bad microbes only cause disease under certain circumstances. In some cases, bacteria can be accidentally inhaled or aspirated into the lungs and cause pneumonia. Bacteria that commonly cause pneumonia include streptococcus, haemophilus, staphylococcus, and anaerobic bacteria. Routine dental visits may reduce the amount of bacteria that can be aspirated, Doll said. “Our study provides further evidence that oral health is linked to overall health, and suggests that it’s important to incorporate dental care into routine preventive healthcare,” Doll said.last_img read more
