A new study has found that people with pear-shaped bodies have just as much to worry about as those who are apple-shaped.

Or any other fruit shape for that matter.

Especially those shaped like the African horned cucumber. They should probably go see a doctor immediately. Google it and you'll know why. LOLz!

And dying young. Can't forget that.

What has happened to the U.S.??

According to a study from the National Academy of Sciences, Americans are waaaaaay unhealthier than Canada, Australia, Japan, Britain, France, Portugal, Italy and Germany. Plus eight other countries.

That's gotta be by like, what, 15 people or something? Not a big gap?

Nope — we're sitting comfortably at #1 in infant mortality, injury and homicide rates, teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases, AIDS, drug abuse, obesity and diabetes, heart disease, lung disease, and disabilities. USA!

negative-emotion-repress-kill-you

If you're hiding your anger or sadness, one day it will just all spill over and you will just die right there.

JK! But repressing those emotions WILL cut years off your life!! Such fab news for those who love to yell and rant! LOLz!

In this new study, they looked at 6,000+ people. It's no small study. They found that those who internalised their anxiety suffered from raised pulse, and that those who are 'hot tempered' live longer! Over time this results in high blood pressure and an increased chance of developing a wide range of illnesses, from coronary heart disease to cancer and kidney damage. So yeah, get all that stuff off your chest asap!

Here's what the study said, and how they defined repressing:

This is a pretty big deal!

A federal judge has decided that tobacco companies will have to publish corrective statements saying that they lied about the dangers of smoking!

They'll have to basically run ads saying they're liars and that smoking is actually worse for you than they've previously let on.

Smoking kills 1,200 people a day! We'd be interested to see what spin they can try and put on that!

Each company will have to say that they:
