“We lost a man of the people”: Tributes pour in for Silvio Parnis

Following the passing of former Labour MP Silvio Parnis at the age of 57 due to a battle with cancer, tributes flooded social media mourning the death and sharing experiences they had with the politician.

Having served as a member of parliament for 24 years, he had most recently taken on the portfolio of Parliamentary Secretary for Active Ageing and Persons with Disability. 

Prime Minister Robert Abela himself said that Malta has lost ‘a man of the people’ who always turned the discussion towards the needs of the people. 

Opposition leader Bernard Grech too posted a tribute to Parnis and highlighted the late politician’s drive to put the needs of the vulnerable ahead of his during his work.

Former Prime Minister Joseph Muscat recounted how he had one of the few last interactions with Parnis prior to his passing and also went on to champion the late politician as one who places the needs of society’s most in need before everything else.

Not drinking enough water raises risk of death by 20%

New research published on Monday in the medical journal the Lancet has shown that adults who are not hydrated enough may show water ageing signs and higher risk of chronic diseases.

Researchers from the National Institutes of Health conducted the study over a 25 year period and analysed the medical visits of over 11,000 adults in the US aged between 45 to 66.

They then followed up with visits at ages 70 through 90, and emerging evidence showed that ‘adding consistent good hydration to other healthy lifestyle choices may slow down the ageing process.’

Researchers tracked hydration in subjects by monitoring how much sodium was found in the blood of participants, with higher sodium levels indicating less hydration. 

Blood-sodium concentrations were found to be between 135 to 146 millimoles per litre. Those with levels on the higher end of the range (i.e greater than 144 millimoles per litre) were 50% more likely to how signs of physiological ageing. 

These include high cholesterol, blood pressure, surging sugar levels, sunken eyes, etc. A 20% increase of premature death risk was also registered.
