Scientists have long known that the frequent use of mobile gadgets can cause stress. A recent study by psychologists has established the easiest way to reduce stress from using a smartphone.
The scientific world has long discussed the danger of using smartphones for the psychological health of people. Daily alerts on a mobile gadget cause a person stress because of the choice: whether to review a new notice or continue to do the current job. In addition, the more often a person is distracted by a smartphone, the greater the concentration of his attention and productivity of work.
Psychologists do not call for a complete disabling of smartphones, but offer an alternative option - to set up receiving notifications more than three times a day. A study was conducted where one group of volunteers received alerts from different applications three times a day, and the second group received no notifications at all.
As it turned out, the complete absence of notifications, too, can cause concern - the experiment participants constantly checked the phone for notifications. At the same time, a group of volunteers with a limited number of notifications received a feeling of calm and less distraction on smartphones.

British scientists said that the first genetically modified people will appear in Europe, since now studies on the modification of human DNA for the treatment of blood disease have been successfully carried out. This is transmitted by the overseas media.
Professor Robin Lovell-Badge of the London-based Francis Crick Institute claims that humans will for the first time be genetically modified in Europe, as physicians by DNA splicing intend to cure blood diseases and increase hemoglobin production. Scientists from the biotechnology company Crispr hope that they will be able to change DNA to stop the genetic mutation and restore healthy hemoglobin levels.
According to researchers, this is the first disease in the world that will be treated by this method. Scientists plan to remove a gene that inhibits protein growth and will allow the patient's bone marrow to produce high levels of hemoglobin again.
