Not being horny enough can lead to an early death says study

A new study published in the journal PLOS One suggests that men with a low libido are almost twice (1.82 times) as likely to suffer an early death. 

The research comes from Yamagata University and it studied more than 20,000 people. 

It sampled its data from 8,558 males and 12,411 females in Japan for over a decade and examined links between sexual interest and “all-cause” mortality. 

These include cardiovascular diseases and cancer, with the study analysing the medical records and survey responses it could get its hands on. The study authors said that: 

“Although sexual activity and sexual satisfaction are considered of benefit to psychological health and wellbeing in older groups, the association between sexual interest and longevity has not been investigated.” 

Participants were asked to complete sexual interest surveys during health check-ins, with those reporting lack of sexual interest tending to be older, likely to drink more, suffer from diabetes, laughed less and suffered from some form of psychological distress. 

Results showed that men over the age of 40 who had low libido were 1.94 times as likely to die from cancer and 1.36 times as likely to die of heart disease. Researchers noted that while women were more than twice as likely as men to report lower libidos, this did not link to there being higher mortality. 

It has not yet been decided as to what the association is, but a constant lack of sexual interest can be a sign of poor habits that raise the risk of chronic disease.

WhatsApp hit record 25 million messages per second during World Cup final

According to Meta founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg, messaging platform WhatsApp reached a record 25 million messages per second during the World Cup final. 

This comes amidst other social media related records being broken all because of the renowned football tournament. 

In comparison, Elon Musk revealed that during the Qatar finals, the social media platform Twitter saw over 24,000 tweets each second. This came when Kylian Mbappe scored the second goal for France to tie Argentina’s score.

Meanwhile, Google CEO Sundar Pichai shared a tweet saying that ‘Search recorded its highest ever traffic in 25 years during the final of #FIFAWorldCup, it was like the entire world was searching about one thing!’

Apart from this, JioCinema, the company that enabled live streaming of the tournament in India said that 32 million viewers used the app to watch the game on the day. Without India’s involvement, it also became the most watched sports event on the internet.

Lionel Messi himself broke a couple of records as well, having his ‘World Champions’ Instagram post first become the most liked post on the platform and later the most liked social media content across all platforms.

Argentina players took helicopter away from Buenos Aries due to mega crowd

Argentina players took helicopter away from Buenos Aries due to mega crowd

Lionel Messi and his fellow Argentinian team-mates left the Tuesday open-top bus run via a helicopter due the oversized crowd which showed up in Buenos Aires to celebrate the World Cup victory. 

The football squad returned to their homeland after beating France in Qatar and received a very warm welcome. They were greeted by hundreds of thousands of enthusiastic fans at the airport. 

Footage emerged of Messi exiting the plane holding the World Cup trophy in hand and went on to meet some of his supporters. The Argentine government had announced a public holiday to celebrate the victory, leading to a massive crowd taking to the streets to celebrate. 

The footballers made their way to an open-top bus after touching down in Buenos Aires to show off their recent victory prize. As many as four million people are believed to have turned out to greet them, which forced the bus to be re-routed with roads and motorways. 

However, this was not enough and this prompted a helicopter exit for the players. This cut off the journey which was meant to end at the Obelisco, the national monument of the city.
