Don't let the sun go to your head, warns new study

Those tempted to set up office in the garden as temperatures soar should think twice - or put a hat on, new research suggests.

The study shows sunshine could diminish brain power, making it harder to make the right judgements.

Working in hot temperatures is already known to cause hyperthermia - a rise in body temperature - which can can cause physical exhaustion.

But now scientists say prolonged exposure of the head to the sun also affects the brain's ability to function properly.

A study by university teams in Denmark and Greece said workers could be damaging their brains by working in hot, sunny conditions.

In the Covid-Free Italian Town of the ‘Last Greeks’ you can Buy a House for 1 Euro

Other than its ragged, bucolic beauty and the mountainous terrain in the toe of the boot of Italy, Cinquefrondi carries a rich history, dating back to Ancient Greece. Its residents call themselves the “Last Greeks” and one can hear Ancient Greek words in their regional dialect.

New Evidence Supports Modern Greeks Having DNA of Ancient Mycenaeans

New emerging DNA evidence suggests that living Greeks are indeed descendants of the ancient Mycenaeans, who ruled mainland Greece and the Aegean Sea from 1,600 BC to 1,200 BC.

One aspect that was revealed in the study was how the Mycenaeans themselves were closely related to the Minoan civilization, which flourished on the island of Crete from 2,000 BC to 1,400 BC.
