Has your last heart attack made you feel like your end is near? Maybe, owning a dog can help in increasing your life span. According to a new study conducted by the American Heart Association in Texas, dog ownership alleviates social isolation and improves physical activity. In the study, researchers studied Swedish residents between the ages of 40 to 85. All participants had suffered from a heart attack or a stroke after 2001. The result of the study showed that the risk of death in heart attack patients decreased by 33 per cent if they own a dog. The study collected data from the Swedish National Patient Register of more than 182,000 heart patients, out of which only 5 per cent owned a dog and only 6 per cent of all stroke patients owned a dog. This is an observational study, meaning that the connection between dog ownership and increased life expectancy cannot be proved. In order to prove this, a clinical trial would be required. However, the study offers an explanation to the link between dogs and heart health.According to Uppsala University in Sweden, who worked with the American Heart Association in this study, lower risk of death shown in the result of the study is because of the amount of physical activity that increases with owning a dog. Also, owning a dog decreases the level of loneliness, which decreases the risk of depression. Depression can slow down recovery. Here is how a dog can improve the heart profile of an individual.

Now, a sweeping new study looking at more than 2 million people from five countries (Denmark, Finland, Sweden, Israel and Australia) found that about 80% of an individual 's risk of developing autism comes from inherited genetic factors and not from ”environmental ” influences, meaning anything other than changes to a gene 's DNA.
In what appears to be Sweden's real Midsummer Festival meets Burning Man, Midsommar is a sensory horror film that hides behind a facade of bright ambiance and floral aesthetics. Directed by Ari Aster, the director of the horror film Hereditary, Midsommar has been touted as a "breakup movie", and the graphic imagery and plot act as an allegory for the demise of a relationship. After suffering a heartbreaking family tragedy where her bipolar sister kills their parents and herself, a traumatized Dani (Florence Pugh) accompanies her distant boyfriend Christian (Jack Reynor) and his friends to a Swedish Summer celebration that only occurs every 90 years. What starts as a once in a lifetime opportunity takes a disturbing turn for the worse, and we have the graphic receipts to prove it. Aster calls the movie a "psychedelic film" because it's a trippy experience for both the characters and viewers, though more literally for the former. As soon as the group of friends arrive at Harga, the Swedish commune site of the Summer festival, the villagers urge them to take a psychedelic that causes Dani to start hallucinating about her dead sister. In many ways, the villagers use drugs to control the outsiders by distorting their realities, stripping them of their inhibitions, and getting them to do their bidding. And after drugging Christian, they lure him into a breeding ritual.
