Lack of sunlight causes near-sightedness.

An incredible 90 percent of primary-school kids in Singapore suffer from myopia, or near-sightedness.

In Australia, the reverse is true: Only 10 percent of kids the same age are near-sighted.

The reason, according to a new study conducted by the Australian National University is that Singaporean kids get only about 30 minutes of sunlight per day, whereas Australian kids get about three hours per day. Direct sunlight stimulates the production of dopamine, which prevents the eyeball from growing elongated and distorting the eyes' focus.

Kids in Africa spend even more time in the sun, and only about 3 percent suffer from myopia.

Long story short: Kids need a lot of sunshine every day.

The Double Helix: Top Ten Amazing Facts about DNA!

• You have an estimated 3 billion DNA bases in your genome.

• Your genome would occupy about 3 gigabytes of computer storage space or fill 200 1,000-page New York City telephone directories.

• It would take a person typing 60 words per minute, eight hours a day, around 50 years to type out all the letters of your genome.

• If unwound and tied together, the strands of DNA in one cell would stretch almost six feet but would be only 50 trillionths of an inch wide.

• If you unwrap all the DNA you have in all your cells it would reach to the sun and back over 600 times (100 trillion times six feet divided by 92 million miles).

• You have an estimated 20,000 to 25,000 genes, but they only make up 2-3% of your genome. We are just starting to understand the function of your remaining “junk”.

• Over 99.9% of your DNA sequence is the same as mine!

• You have 1-4% Neanderthal DNA; some of you may have more :)

• The first human genome was patched together over 13 years; today, your genome can be commercially sequenced in 2-3 months.

• Costs for sequencing the genome are falling exponentially: from USD 3 billion in 2001 to USD1,000 today and may fall by another factor of ten!

So, what's in your genes?

An anthropologist proposed a game to African tribe kids. He put a basket full of fruit near a tree and told them that whoever got there first won the sweet fruits. When he told them to run they all took each others hands and ran together, then sat together enjoying their treats. When he asked them why they had run like that as one could have had all the fruits for himself they said: UBUNTU, how can one of us be happy if all the other ones are sad?

UBUNTU in the Xhosa culture means: "I am because we are"

I have just seen this on another social site, if only others would sit up and take note of people like Chris King who replied, I love the fact he even put his age down too, well done Sainsbury's, this should make anyone smile ;)
