Reading newspapers reportedly good for your health

READING newspapers is reportedly good for your health.

Says a story on page three of Saturday’s Scottish Daily Express, a study of 1,000 adults “found those most open to mass media consumed the largest amount of fruits and fresh fish and the least animal fats”.

The results of the study are reported to have appeared in the International Journal of Public Health. The study was conducted by an Italian university, the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart in Campobasso.

A Dr Americo Bonanni, from the university, is quoted as saying: “Our results show people most exposed to information delivered by any mass media source reported higher adherence to the Mediterranean-like eating pattern which is considered the most effective for reducing the risk of chronic and neuro-degenerative diseases.”
